Powerful Thoughts

“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”
—Peace Pilgrim

Today’s quote which I made into the card above is from my friend Paul Mark Sutherland at GoalHabits.com’s quote today Click Here!   Much like my dear friend over at Laurie’s Notes,  I have come to rely upon their morning posts to begin my day with inspiration.  In that quietness before my home awakens, I sip my coffee and contemplate life.  It’s a ritual that I truly enjoy and it’s the time in my day that I carve out just for me.

I notice the birds outside and the skies above.  I take a moment in gratitude for the day, asking for a bit of help as I travel though life.  Our cat Tiffy and I chat a bit while I pet her, getting my fur therapy for the day.  There’s nothing like having an affectionate pet to warm the morning for you.  Do you have a morning or evening ritual which helps you?

When I came across Paul’s quote, I knew I had to share it as well because it’s so true!  Have you heard this quote before?  Have you ever stopped to think about what you think about?  Do you find that you think negative thoughts often?  Have you ever tried to monitor what you are thinking about?

I know that for me, I try to monitor what I say aloud, but those inner thoughts often go unnoticed ~ the negativity sometimes sneaks its way into my thoughts.  I know this because what comes out of my mouth begins as a thought and I sometimes stop myself before speaking.

So in Inner Hotshot University class this week,

let’s step our of our comfort zones and concentrate on our thoughts and words!

I double-dog dare you to count how many times you say something negative

for an hour, then for 12 hours, then for a day!

Ready, set ~ start now!

Let me know how it goes!

Shine On!

  1. VERY nice! I have a very similar routine (5 am, 7 days a week). I also call it a ritual. It’s my morning ritual and I never miss it, for it really is special time for me.

    As you know, I love quotes …lots of them. However, the message in this one truly is powerful beyond conscious knowing. This message needs to be permanently carved into our higher consciousness if we aspire to receiving all things positive. I am on a never-ending journey to “realize.”

    And thank you for your very kind and supportive words. You are a special soul. We need you, and more people like you. As always, I wish you continued love, happiness, and abundance. 🙂 ~Paul

    • Paul, I am so happy that we connected as your quotes bring much joy to my life ~ and much realization! Thanks for being you! ♥ Your blog is very special to me as are your quotes ~ many times I feel they are ‘sent’ to me especially! ♥

  2. This is very true. Negative thoughts serve only to bring us down. They can consume us and color everything we see, say, and do. It’s like ink spreading on clear water. It takes a lot of determination to get out of that cycle of negativity though.

  3. What a lovely way to start your day! And I couldn’t agree more with your challenge. I do believe negative thoughts are a habit that can be broken, And oh, what a powerful day it will be when we all can break that habit. Thank you for such an inspiring blog.
