Begin a search into personal development techniques and you will quickly come across the statement that your thoughts create your reality. From channeled books by Seth and Jane Roberts to Depak Chopra , Wayne Dyer, and the film The Secret; the message is the same. You can change the reality that you experience by changing what you think. So, the next question to address is "How do I effectively change my thoughts?" As you work on changing your thoughts it is helpful to realize that your thoughts are nothing more than an electrical impulse between two synapses, the result of a chemical reaction in your brain. Steps to Change Your Thoughts 1)Pay attention to your thoughts: When a thought comes up simply ask yourself is this thought true? You see, you are not enjoying reality because you are lying to your self, well at least your thoughts are. If you pay attention to your inner dialog you will find that many of the thoughts you are having are negative, creating for you a negative life experience. Your thoughts lie to you, but you don't have to believe it. 2)Retrain yourself through repetition: Repeatedly writing out what you want to believe, you retrain yourself into having the positive thoughts you desire. BY repeatedly writing down what you wish to create in your life you will draw it to you, just through having focus on it. 3)The benefits of Visualization: If you use creative visualization and picture yourself pursuing the activities you wish to do, you begin to create reality to match your vision. Visualization exercises draw to you the things and circumstances you envision in your mind, reality follows at a slower pace but it will eventually catch up. The key to powerful visualization manifestation is daily practice. The more you see the results that you desire in your mind the quicker they will manifest in your reality. 4)Witness: By witnessing or watching yourself you can detach from repetitive negative thought patterns. You can allow the negative thoughts to pass, replacing them with positive messages. You are what you believe you are. If you believe you can do something, you will find the way to accomplish it. If you don't believe in yourself you give up before even trying. "Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution."
