There is a great awakening taking place within my thinking today.

 awakening

 

 

Your mind is capable of experiencing moments of profound insight repeatedly throughout the course of your everyday existence.  An epiphany is such a moment of insight that usually happens once, or very rarely, in someone’s life, and it serves as a significant touchstone or turning point for them.  But having an epiphany is not something that has to be rare or limited to a singular, once-in-a-lifetime experience.  A virtually continual state of renaissance can take place in your thinking if you keep exposing yourself to the stimuli of new information and deliberately enlist yourself into environments that are conducive to inspiration.

 

Being around creative people on a regular basis is very healthy for your state of mind and can help secure a place for you, mentally and emotionally, where constant revival, rebirth and renewal of your thought processes can occur.  “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” – Proverb 27:17.  Great ideas are often birthed out of invigorating dialogue between people who are on the same page in matters of vision.  Interacting with people who have different paradigms keeps things interesting and keeps you awake, mentally, so that you can be receptive to new concepts and can continue to grow personally.

When you finally begin to realize that your imagination and thought-life are the only things that can limit your possibilities in any way, you will see the importance of always keeping your mind awake and ready for renewal.  Buried deep within you are sleeping powers that can potentially revolutionize your life if they are properly aroused.  A resurgence of visionary thinking can energize every aspect of your life, including the physical.  As any professional athlete will tell you, excelling in competition is infinitely more of a mental thing than it is a physical thing.  Being strong and fit in your mind is ultimately what makes you strong and fit in your body.

Nothing is more empowering day by day than a continual flow of powerful thoughts.  And you have constant access to that flow – a flow that leads to untapped reservoirs of power in your mind that have never even been explored.  You don’t have to ride down the road of life asleep at the wheel.  Visionary thinking can enable you to grow more alert, more awake, and more alive with age as your senses grow sharper and sharper.  When you think correctly, you discover that there is so much more to enjoy and celebrate in the world than you ever imagined or thought possible before.  You can change your life by changing the way you see things.

I am empowered to rise above any and all small thinking today.

A small, insignificant life is the product of small, unimportant thoughts that are the product of small, unexceptional inner pictures. By fearlessly embracing the largest vision that you can for your true self and for your best possible life, you liberate yourself from being stuck in a third-rate mindset of prolonged toleration for the average and the ordinary. Someone you know who can’t see a bigger picture may tell you that something can’t be done simply because, in their sight, it’s a small world after all. Love and appreciate them for whom they are, but ignore their little words and little ideas, because you are being enlarged by what you are able to see.
