The Power of the Mind

The Power of the Mind

In previous articles on the subject I have outlined the fact that nearly all people use only a fraction of the potential of the mind.

For the majority of people, when we do use our minds it is to focus on something negative rather than positive.

Why is this?

Well one of the prime reasons is the way we are programmed by our gender, family, friends and life’s experiences.

We are all surrounded by negative events as depicted in the news and by well meaning family and friends who remind us of things that can go wrong in our lives when we take what they consider to be risks rather than the good things that can happen if we just try something different.

The outcome is that we become non-risk takers and our minds become receptive to all things negative.

Are our minds really that powerful?

You bet they are.

For example why is it that you easily forget a good experience from last week but can remember a bad experience from 20 years previous?

Let me give you an example of what the mind is capable of.

If you can read the following text is your mind strange or just normal?

I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulacity uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg.

The phaomneal pweor of the human mind,aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy,it dseno’t mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the only iproamtnt thing is that the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm.

This is bcuseae the human mind deos not raed ervery lteter by istlef but the word as a wlohe.

Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

If the human mind can work in such a powerful way with words then just think what it can do with a head full of negative thoughts.

Is there any good news about all this?

There certainly is because YOU and only YOU are in control of your mind.

You can choose to think positively and with imagination or negatively with a closed mind.

By the way just give a thought for me because the spell checker on my computer has just blown a gasket proof reading this article!
