Powers of Thought: Tips on Protecting Personal Energy


Living mindfully is about being connected with and living in the moment. Everything that you believe, view, touch, hear, feel, and think is made up of energy. Negative energy, as well as positive energy, can be accumulated and held onto causing dysfunction, self-destructive emotions, inappropriate behavior and a general negative overview of self. 

It is well known that it takes more energy to disavow yourself of something than allowing yourself something. The loss of personal energy creates a hole. Human beings do not tolerate empty holes. So seeking a replacement becomes (good or bad, positive or negative, healthy or addictive) the main objective. 

Knowledge comes from experiencing your energy in the moment and not getting lost in the past or projecting into the future. When you get lost in the past or focusing on predicting the future all your energy depletes due to the amount of energy it takes to be in more than one place at a time. Meaning on one hand attempting to live in the moment and focused on fixing what went wrong in the past make your energy vulnerable. On the other hand attempting to live your life in the present and focused on predicting what might or might not happen in the future also causes your energy to evaporate.



Many times in your life you modulate in and out of periods of energy loss. Why? You do not allow or permitted to protect and enhance your own energy for one or more reasons. Why? Because you were never allowed or given permission to think of yourself first.

To protect your own energy, here are some tips for you.

Take Away

If you are not mindful of what you are allowed or personally have permission to do with yourself or in life you could lose more than just your energy. The most important aspect of yourself is what you believe about yourself. Not whether someone else is better than you or how you compare to them. Diverting your energy from yourself to obsessing what others expect, think or want from you sucks up your energy you need to live mindfully.

Turn it all around. Know what you are permitted to do or not to do. Take the ones you are not allowed to do for yourself and change by giving yourself permission. 

Live a fulfilled and healthy by enjoying life at the moment. The moment is all you have and that is real.

Powers of Thought: 4 Tips on Turning Thoughts Positive


Negative core beliefs create anxiety, critical self-talk, unrealistic thoughts, stress, and worry. All of these mentioned are a negative thinking pattern that can be contributing to your anxiety, critical self-talk, stress, worry and panic issues. Negative thinking tends to be a learned habit that can impact your emotions, thinking, and physical health. Since negative thinking typically develops over time due emotional, environmental and situational triggers it can be unlearned and replaced with more positive beliefs and views when the unknown influence of core beliefs are recognized.

Turn Your Thoughts Around

Turning your negative beliefs around involves recognizing, assessing their truth, and replaced. 

First, start by recognizing how often you pay attention to and worrying about your thoughts throughout the day. It may help to start a thought journal and record your thoughts on a piece of paper as they come up. Knowing your thoughts will open you up to realizing your belief’s power and influence they have over how you act, feel, react and think.

Secondly, look at your beliefs behind your thoughts and ask if they are realistic and truthful beliefs of who you are. Try to look at the other side of the beliefs which result in negative thoughts. For example, if you believe that others won’t accept you due to your lack of skills, ask yourself if that is a necessarily true reflection of you really are? Do people only accept those who are completely flawless? Do you really want to be friends with someone who can’t accept you for who you are? By reality checking and disputing your beliefs you diminish their power and influence. Checking validity of your beliefs and doubting their truthfulness may begin help you to take on a different and more positive perspective.

Thirdly, determine where or who these negative beliefs came from. Is what you believe about yourself is coming from your true self or was it given to you through another’s critical statement or perception? For example, are you not good enough? If your beliefs did not come from you or are not a real vision of who you then denounce them out loud to yourself. Once their falsehood is realized and denounced, take them out of your mind, eliminate them from your belief system.

Lastly, replace these negative beliefs, expectations, perceptions, thoughts, and worries with more realistic beliefs, thoughts, and positive statements about yourself. 

For instance, you may begin to think of yourself in a better or more positive light. Not everyone will accept your beliefs but your opinion is most valuable. Know that you are working on becoming a more compassionate, fulfilled, positive, and self-assured person. When you have made the shift in your beliefs that will eventually become your truths and you will realize more acceptance in yourself. In this way, you know you are based in your new core beliefs.



Take Away

Accept that your thoughts are a byproduct of your beliefs and generated from your subconscious mind. Change the content of your beliefs from negative to positive. Once your beliefs are changed and reflect a true representation of who you really are then your thoughts will automatically change to benefit you. You possess the ability to change your beliefs and have a more fulfilled life.
