The Difference between Thoughts and Beliefs


Do you think that your thoughts have real power over you and your life? This is a real idea that many think is the truth. Maybe not? What should you know?

The most vital issue to know about your mind and how you perceive reality is knowing there is a difference between thoughts and beliefs. 

Differences

The difference between a thought and a belief is that you may have thousands of thoughts going through your mind. Maybe up to 70,000 thoughts a day. But none of your thoughts have any power or influence on you or your life except those that are connected to beliefs. A core belief is what makes a thought real and causes you to accept as true. 

You can't just choose to make a thought real or not just by deciding to with your very power of the will.

It is most important to know that is not your thinking that creates your circumstances, but the emotion and core belief that is attached to your thoughts that influence the outcome of your circumstances. Thoughts connected to core beliefs can manifest into actions or feelings but not all thoughts become actions. It is only the thoughts that are accompanied with strong beliefs and emotion that cause your life to change.

First of all, a thought is a conscious manifestation of a core belief. Once an action occurs, then it and only then that the result of the thought becomes a subconscious memory. The belief within the memory is what governs what you do, say and feel. Thoughts may be conscious to start with, but they become powerful subconscious beliefs that influence your life when triggered into motion. Now suppose I did not say I was penniless but came into the world with an unconscious belief of poverty. So long as that belief was operating in my subconscious mind, I would manifest I was poor. I might not have known the embedded subconscious beliefs were present in my mind, but it would have been working all the time and could be triggered.



Afterthoughts

Your subconscious mind is the seat of core beliefs that form throughout your life from circumstance your experience and there is a storehouse of them in your subconscious mind, therefore core beliefs are directly tied to how you think, act and feel daily. Thoughts that are formed into core beliefs from circumstances are energy in motion. The more emotion a core belief possesses, the more it governs who you are, what you do and how you perceive you and the world around. Weak thoughts have little emotion and certainly no connected beliefs. Strong thoughts are generated from core beliefs connected to them. Know your beliefs and rule your emotions.

You can choose your thoughts but don't be discouraged if you fall back now and then. Try instead to muster a smile and find the humor in the fact that your mind can be very stubborn at times. Be nice to yourself.
