The Energy of Focused Thought (Just 68 seconds!)

We are all comprised of energy.  Each of us is surrounded by a 3-5 ft electromagnetic field of energy created by the heart, thoughts, and emotions.  In fact, your heart generates 60 times more magnetic energy than your brain. The next generation of iPods are predicted to be powered by the energy transmitted by your heart-no batteries necessary.  Talk about amazing!

Your heart isn’t the only part of your body that generates a significant amount of energy-did you know that your thoughts create a measurable amount of energy, too?  Here is a neat demonstration by Martha Beck which demonstrates and proves that thoughts create real, measurable energy.  This is pretty neat…..

Martha Beck-Mind Over Matter

According to Esther Hicks (Abraham), the energy created by our thoughts is exponentially greater than the energy created by our behaviors.  How much thought, you ask?  68 seconds of focused thought creates such an incredible amount of energy that it has the same effect as 20,000 hours of behavior. That effect doubles at 36 seconds, and it multiplies exponentially around the 68 second mark.  Let’s take that in for a moment-a focused thought or image has such an incredible amount of energy that it has the same effect as more than 40,000 hours of behavior.

Most people think about the same things over and over again, which can be a good thing if you happen to have focused, positive thought patterns.  Most of us don’t-approximately 75-85% of our thoughts are the same each day, and the majority of these tend to be negative.  You see where all of this is going, right?  Negative thoughts create your reality.  However, you can CHOOSE your thoughts with a little diligent practice.

Your thoughts are a choice, and they become an automatic habit-just like driving your car or riding a bike.  After awhile we tend to become less aware of our thought habits.   Here are the best tips for doing just that: Continue reading “The Energy of Focused Thought (Just 68 seconds!)” »

Six Tips for Organizing Your Photographs

Here is a great guest post on how to organize the old photos you have lying around the house.  There is a real connection between clutter in your home and energy-just ask any fung shui specialist!  Every time I clean out a room or the garage, I experience a major, unexpected life change (usually positive!).  Since I have an entire drawer full of old photos that I accrued prior to the digital photo era, perhaps I’ll use a few of these tips to clear the clutter and create an energy shift.

Thanks to the author for this great set of tips as I recover from surgery.  More on that later-ta-ta for now! Continue reading “Six Tips for Organizing Your Photographs” »

The Science of Conscious Parenting

So I’ve been talking to you about the connection between your thoughts, energy, and health for the past two days.  Thanks to the fields of quantum physics, epigenetics, and energy psychology, we know now that your DNA is not the sole determinant of your health.  It can change in response to environmental information, or energy.  Your thoughts create energy, and energy impacts the receptors on your cell membranes and can even cause changes in your DNA.  More specifically, your perception of your environment and the energy signals received from the environment determine your DNA expression.

The dog days of summer are here, and the longer days of summer allow for much more time outdoors.  I love summer time, but the heat can be a little draining.  I thought I’d check in this evening to share some of what we’ve been up to here.

This is an excellent option for those of you who have kids with EXTRA energy, especially on the days when you have none. Continue reading “Summertime” »

Get Still, Get Healthy, and Keep Your Sanity

Do you feel wired and tired most of the time?  Join the crowd.  Feeling tired, by the way, is the direct path to irritability, forgetfulness, and getting every damned cold that your child brings home from school.  There IS a way to feel more relaxed and improve your health, but you’ll have to come to terms with the fact that you need to get still for at least a few minutes a day.
