What's on your mind? Right now, in this moment. Where are your thoughts? Hopefully, if you're reading this blog, your thoughts are focused on the words on your screen. If you're like most of us, your thoughts may often been lingering somewhere else, even when you're focusing on something like reading. Kinda tricky, right?
This concept of "multitasking" as a goal is in many ways a HUGE distraction from actual productive action or even productive thinking. If we are focusing on an activity, such as reading a blog; but our thoughts are really on what's next on our agenda, or what we forgot to do yesterday, are we really present? Not likely.
No worries, you're not alone. Most of us have so many thoughts that enter our mind within the first 5 seconds of waking up every morning; that by the time we actually raise ourselves out of bed, we have about 400 thoughts, scenarios and ideas that have rushed to the surface of our minds. This is why it is so important to have a Rising Ritual that we practice before plugging into the world.

So back to your thoughts. What's on your mind right now? And maybe expand just a little bit; and consider what's the the focus of your most dominate thoughts? Money, Love, Health, Family, Travel? What do you think about most? Where do you find your thoughts taking you on a journey to the most frequently?
Whatever subject your thoughts are most dominantly focused on, is what you will experience the MOST of in your life. For instance, if your dominate thoughts are linked to money, you may find yourself experiencing repetitive thoughts about having money, not having money, making money, spending money, etc. Or, if your dominate thoughts are about love and partnerships, you may find yourself having thoughts about finding love, losing love, marriage, etc.
Whether you find yourself most often thinking about money, love, family, travel, whatever ... you are most likely thinking about two subjects relating to those topics.
Let me break it down ...
Every subject is really two subjects. The presence of it. Or, the absence of it.
So if money is the subject of your thoughts, you are either thinking about the presence of it, or the absence of it. Now you may ask yourself, why would I want to think about the absence of money? If my most dominate thoughts are what influences what shows up in my life, why would i want to think about the absence of money? Money is great! I want to have lots of it!
Well, we often are only about to identify what we DO want, when we experience the absence of it.
So, our thoughts will often get caught into loop of sorts. Which creates a loop of experiences in our lives. In order to break the loop, or stop the cycle, you have to learn how to manage your mind.
Remember, what's your mind is what's in your life. If what's in your life is less than desirable, you may want to take a closer look at your predominantly repeating thoughts.
