“You want to become aware of your thoughts, you want to choose your thoughts carefully and you want to have fun with this, because you are the masterpiece of your own life. You are the Michelangelo of your own life. The David that you are sculpting is you. And you do it with your thoughts.”
~~ Joe Vitale
In a movie that changed my life, The Secret, and I saw something wonderful. There was a section where this woman named Cathy Goodmand was talking about how she was diagnosed with cancer. She decided to think that she was already healed. Note that she did not ask for healing. She decided she was already healed. During her days, all day, she would just say, “Thank you for my healing.” She saw herself as if cancer was never in her body. One of the things she did was to watch very funny movies. She made sure that she was laughing, laughing, laughing. She made sure to eliminate any and all stress that she could. It has been proven that stress damages your ability to heal.
She was diagnosed on a November 23rd. Three months later she was cancer free. This was without radiation or chemotherapy.
I’ve read about this stuff a lot.
As a matter of fact, it is this thinking that changed my life.
Some years ago a man I know was diagnosed with a cancer that gave him about a 2% chance of living. Funny thing is, he told everyone that he had a type that gave him a huge chance of living. At first I thought he was lying to everyone. Maybe so they wouldn’t worry about him? Feel sorry for him?
But the more I learn about how Thoughts Become Things, I saw what he was doing.
He was predetermining that he was going to survive. He was telling Everyone (including himself) that he had a type of cancer where he was going to live. He wasn’t asking people to believe in the impossible. He was telling them what to believe. Everyone believed him.
And Thoughts Became Things.
I have an Online Friend who has a very dark life. She is constantly sad. She is gorgeous and smart and funny and generous and she is alone. She can’t figure out why. She has convinced herself that she is ugly and unlovable.
This is something I noticed about her. All her favorite books, movies, music, even her clothing, is dark and depressing. The books have unhappy endings—everyone dies. Same with the favorite movies. Her music is either screaming dark metal or ballads about breakups and hurt and pain. She wear black. She knows she will never find anyone—that she is unlovable.
Thing is? She is amazing. She is very lovable.
But Thoughts Become Things.
So if she is filling her life with darkness, what else can she hope to attract.
I’ve had a rough month or so with all that is happening with me at work. I work long hours with horrid dark almost evil people…and it is attracting darkness to me.
That darkness has made it almost impossible for me to make things better…when I am not at work.
Then I thought about that lady again. I thought about other stories I have read that say the same things she said.
And I decided that it is really not the time to watch dark movies or read dark stores. It is time instead for me to fill my life with light.
Comedy is a good one. I started watching a lot of stand up comedy.
And I laughed.
I’ve been laughing and laughing the last few days.
And I can already feel the difference.
Here is something else The Secret teaches.
Change your feelings and you can far more easily change your thoughts.
Think about things you love or make you smile or make you laugh and you feel better and it makes it far more easier to think of good things and good thoughts and…well…
…Thoughts Become Things.
So here is my plan.
Depression is a cancer of the heart and soul and mind.
I am going to change my feelings. I am going to change my thoughts. I am doing it already.
I am going to continue watching movies like The Secret and shows that make me laugh and laugh and laugh, like Friends.
And I am getting myself out of this shitty stuff now. It’s not going to get a hold of me for months! Not this time!
I have books to write!
Books about hope! Books that fill my readers with hope!
So no more bullcrap.
After all, don’t I believe that if I leap the net will appear?
You bet I do!
So today’s mission is to laugh.
And hopefully write.
Because if there is anything I know, I am the masterpiece of my life!
And today I am going to start sculpting David.
Is there a hotter statue ever made?
