The Power
                    Of Mind Is Everything!

The Power Of Mind Is Everything!

by William J Stevens


A commercial for the United Negro College Fund which aired frequently in the 1980s used the slogan 'the mind is a terrible thing to waste'. We're not talking about college educations here today, but this is a slogan which is absolutely true. Your mind has lot more power than you might think; and the power of the mind is indeed a terrible thing to waste. When you can access the power your mind contains, you can use it to change the world around you for the better.

You've certainly heard about the law of attraction; the idea behind the book and film 'The Secret'. Whatever you put your mental energy toward will come to you is the message of the work. Whether you do so consciously or not, the power of the mind is such that you can make whatever you focus on happen, whether for good or ill.

As an example, take the placebo effect - people who are receiving a placebo in clinical trials of medications often experience the effects caused by the actual medication since they believe that they are receiving the medication.

We do this kind of thing to ourselves all the time. For instance, when you wake up thinking that this is going to be 'one of those days'; and it turns out to be a bad day. It's actually the power of the mind that causes this to happen.

There is an ever growing amount of evidence for a scientific basis to the power of the mind, with one of the most intriguing ideas coming from the world of quantum physics. This is the possibility that matter either does not take shape until an observer is there to witness it. This suggests that the power of the mind may actually be what shapes the universe, not the other way around.

Many scientists now believe that many things which we think of as supernatural are in fact explainable through hard science, although we're only beginning to understand just how it is that telepathy, ESP and other mental phenomena work.

The power of the mind is something that you can train yourself to use for your own benefit. If you could use your own mental energy to bend the universe and make positive changes, wouldn't you want to learn how? There are a couple of methods which can help you to learn to access your own latent mental powers.

The first step is to have a goal; this has to be a specific, rather than a general goal. Instead of thinking 'I want to be rich', think 'I want three million dollars'. Having a specific goal makes it easier for you to focus your mental energies on achieving your objective. Learning to focus is the key here; most of the time, you may have dozens of different thoughts going on at once.

There are people who already know how powerful the mind is and put their mental energy into the achievement of their goals. They focus on specific objectives and put all of their efforts towards their objective, using the full power of the mind. This is what makes it happen; it's more difficult than it sounds on paper, but it's something that all of us can achieve if we put our minds to it.

Suppose that there's a house that is just perfect for you - but it's not even for sale and you're not ready to buy a home at the moment. However, the power of the mind can make it all happen. Start focusing your mental energies on this goal. Visualize what vegetables you'd plant in the garden and what color you'd paint each room in the home. Put your energy into things which will help you be ready to make this home yours, such as looking into how to get a good mortgage, getting a better job or a promotion so that you'll be better off financially and other preparatory steps.

When you make this goal the target of the power of the mind, you begin to set the events in motion which lead to it coming to pass. The home will go on the market, your offer will be accepted and you'll easily secure a great mortgage. It's not luck that made this happen; it's not just your hard work either - the power of the mind played the starring role.

This is something that any of us has the ability to do. When you learn to tap into the power of the mind, you can use it to achieve nearly anything in life. The important thing is to start small and then work your way up to ever bigger and better things until you've accomplished everything you want to in life.
