What Is The Difference Between Thoughts And Beliefs And Why Is That Important For Using The Law Of Attraction
One of the most crucial things to know about the mind and reality is the difference between thoughts and beliefs. The difference between a thought and a belief is that you may have thousands of thoughts going through your mind but none of them give birth to any power except those that are beliefs. A belief is information that you understand as truth or knowledge. Choosing to make a thought real or not is a decision under the very power of the will.
Thought is first a conscious idea, then it becomes a subconscious memory, working day and night. This is what operates the law of attraction, for the reason that the laws of attraction and repulsion are entirely subconscious. Thoughts may be conscious to start with, but they are subconscious as soon as they are put in motion. The subconscious mind is the seat of emotion and the database of memory, therefore memory is tied to emotion. Emotion is energy in motion. The more emotion a thought has, the more it is able to move matter. Weak thoughts have little emotion. Strong thoughts have much emotion.
The things we manifest in our life come from our subconscious beliefs rather than our conscious thinking. If we believe everything we think on is going to manifest in one form or another, we’ll probably walk about terrified because most of us aren’t thinking optimistic thoughts all the time. If we have the idea that whenever we think a thought, it will create our reality, then we would most likely be afraid to think anything at all.
Emotion is energy in motion, therefore all movement is emotional. The subconscious mind as the seat of emotion is the operational aspect of the mind. All activity is carried out by the subconscious mind which is the creative faculty. The conscious mind merely directs and instructs, therefore the subconscious mind continually works in harmony with the conscious mind. The coming together of conscious and subconscious mind in order to manifest reality permanently involves the element of want and emotion.
A conscious thought only has effect when being consciously thought of. When the thought is intensified and galvanized with emotion, it generates enough momentum to continue flowing on its own and become perpetual. The thought becomes a memory and the subconscious programming that runs the entire mind. Every true belief is not just conscious but subconscious and is tied to emotion. A belief is a thought wrapped in the clothes of emotion.
Almost no one can maintain a conscious focus on anything for more than a few seconds. When you focus as fully as you possibly can on maintaining an image or thought in your mind, notice how long it takes before something else pops into your awareness. That something else is coming from your subconscious mind because it is always in motion.
Thus, it’s crucial to ensure that your subconscious mind seizes the focus on your target since your conscious mind simply can’t do it. When you emotionalize the thought instead, the parts of the brain that excel at maintaining focus, the frontal lobes, are energized in a way that maintains the necessary subconscious focus. The result is that, subconsciously, you keep your eyes on the prize, even when you’re sleeping.
When your subconscious mind understands the message it receives, it takes root and becomes set in motion.
The thought becomes emotionalized, internalized and turns into a belief.
The fastest way to give yourself the beliefs to manifest the things you want is through hypnosis and NLP. There are numerous other ways and certainly there are methods yet to be discovered. For now though, in western culture,the best ways for us to install the subconscious beliefs that will continually have our minds focused on creating our wants is through hypnosis. You can use affirmations or meditation but those things take too long.
Once your subconscious has the beliefs that support what you conscious mind wants, you won’t be able to stop yourself from gliding towards your goals. Like the maltese falcon, subconscious beliefs that match your conscious wants is the stuff that dreams are made of.
