By thinking these same thoughts every day our body receives the same chemicals each day. Our bodies begin to crave these same thoughts that is producing these same chemicals. We literally become addicted to our thoughts. We begin to allow our body to rule our mind. Rather than our mind ruling our body. This explains why happy people generally are happy most of the time and sad people are generally sad most of the time. People thinking happy thoughts are thinking these thoughts 95% of the time. The same goes with sad thoughts. Depressed people are thinking sad thoughts 95% of the time. They are filling their body with their chemicals of what they are thinking about.
My neighbor is always worried about something. If he has nothing to worry about he will worry about my stuff or something he saw on the news that day. He just has to worry. Worrying has become a natural state for him. If he did not worry he would not feel normal. His thoughts create a worrying chemical that flows through his body all day and most of the night. His body has been receiving this chemical drug for years now. If he were to find something to make him happy his body would not like that. His body would find a way to make him worry. He would create some type of scenario to get his mind back to the job of worrying. This is why he likes to watch movies that cause stress and anxiety. When he watches these types of movies his brain is making the anxiety drug for his body. He might think he is relaxing, but his body knows differently. When the bad guy in the movie is chasing the innocent woman through the house with a knife, his body is soaking up the anxious/worry chemicals to keep his normal state of worry in tact.
You feel sad about the breakup with your loved one. Your body makes the “sad” chemical. The “sad” chemical brings other sad thoughts into your awareness. You think about all the times you have been hurt by loved ones. This brings on more “sad” chemicals. Your body is literally receiving an overdose of these chemicals. And then someone comes along and tells you not to feel sad. Your brain knows that it would like to not think obsessively about the sadness, but your body is so use to having that sad chemical, it becomes a normal feeling for you now. Since 95% of your thinking is now about sadness your body is getting a enormous amount of the sad drug. And this is what feels normal for you. This is the drug that your body is addicted to. You are an addict to your thoughts.
If you happen to have a happy thought in there, it is not enough to change the chemical makeup. Your body rejects that happy thought and begs for the sad chemicals it has become use to. You are in a loop that you do not understand how to get out of. Your addiction to your thoughts are ruling your life. Until you understand what is going on it can be difficult to change these patterns of thinking.
If you don’t become aware of how you are choosing what to put in your life, nothing will change. People behave like addicts, wanting only the drug/chemical, that makes them feel the way they have come to know as normal. We then come to the conclusion that that there is only one way to think, be or behave. Your life becomes limited, hopeless and trapped.
Our addiction to our same thoughts, controls us. We are not open to new thoughts. We begin to feel “caught” in our lives and depressed and cut off from our divine source. We loose our purpose and the reason we came to be here in this dimension. Our sparkle fades.
We are creators, we must create! Human beings are here to be creators. By creating, we learn. When we only activate the circuits in our brain that were handed down to us from our parents, we do not evolve. When we only think the thoughts that we are addicted to we can not evolve. We have to add to our neural network by learning new things and choosing different options other than what mom, dad or society has taught us, or what we have become so use to thinking.
Just having those same old 64,000 thoughts each day makes you stagnate, less imaginative. The world becomes flat. We get sick. We look for drugs, alcohol and diversions in our life thinking it will bring us back to some kind of balance. Being unbalanced we are unaligned to our divine self and our purpose for being here. We each chose to be here in this life to learn many things and have experiences and to feel many feelings. By only activating the neural networks that we inherited, we deaden ourselves to our spiritual life and are not choosing from our spiritual side. We robotically choose from memory.
We have the option to come from memory (ego) or inspiration (spirit) when making a decision or when talking to someone. When you only choose from memory, you are not experiencing a life full of spiritual guidance. This is where you will find yourself repeating certain patterns in your life. Or you may find yourself in a rut. If you have a belief system that says you must always plan ahead and not be spontaneous, you could be missing out on some life changing opportunities. Go with your gut. Your gut will guide you to your authentic life. Say what your gut tells you to, not what you think the other person wants to hear. Follow your gut rather than your routine memory. There are so many missed opportunities by saying no to a spontaneous invitation for a trip, talking to a stranger, or signing up for a class that sparks your interest. These “missed opportunities” will lead you to your spiritual destination. Just choosing from habit, or what feels safe, puts a mental straightjacket on you. Joy is strangled out of you by only choosing from what you know and what you have “always” done.
Remember that you can chose from your spiritual side. When you do life becomes more meaningful. You will be led to your next learning on your journey. Think of it like a treasure hunt as you follow your spirit. When you look for a treasure you look for the clues to where to find it. Look for your clues as they come to you in dreams, inspirations and curiosity. It is exciting when you discover that treasure is there just for you. But you have to go out and look for it. When you are given a choice, ask your spirit which direction it would have you go in. After you ask your question to your spirit, the very first thing that comes to your mind, is your spirit talking to you. The minute you.
Start thinking about the answer you are no longer listening to spirit. That is your ego choosing for you. Ego will tell you things like, you better not take the long route home, even when your spirit is imploring you to explore a different road that may take longer to get home. The long route is full of beautiful trees and fields. Your spirit may need you to be in touch with that so you can be inspired. Your ego takes over by telling you the normal way home is best and you do not want to be late in watching the evening news program, like you always do. It takes time to know which is talking, your gut or your memory. Keep practicing if you want to become better at listening for your authentic voice. Be adventurous and curious as you learn to listen to your spirit.
