Thinking Makes It So

There's a little section from Hamlet that you might be familiar with:

What have you, my good friends, deserv'd at the hands of
Fortune, that she sends you to prison hither?

Prison, my lord?

Denmark's a prison.

Then is the world one.

A goodly one, in which there are many confines, wards, and
dungeons, Denmark being one o' th' worst.

We think not so, my lord.

Why then 'tis none to you; for there is nothing either good or
bad, but thinking makes it so. To me it is a prison.

That one line - "...there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so..."

To Hamlet, Denmark is a prison, and a terrible one. However, Guildenstern and Rosencrantz do not see it as such. It appears Shakespeare knew a little bit about manifesting our reality, eh? He (or possibly she, because some believe the works of Shakespeare were actually penned by a woman) knew that prison bars and dungeons often only exist in our own minds.

By the way... I am writing this for me. I NEED to really KNOW and FEEL this in my life. I NEED this reminder because, for a while, I forgot.

I don't leave my house very often. I tell myself, "If I go out into the world, I will pick on on negative energy and it will cause ill effects." Guess what happens?

The day before my husband and I attended the wedding of a friend, I was stressed out about it. I was making up stories in my mind about all of the negative things I might experience. Then... I caught myself. Then I remembered! Then I filled my head with LOVE and positive thoughts and prepared myself for a beautiful evening.

On the way to the wedding, I centered myself. I sent out my grounding cord into the earth, cleared my chakras, and brought divine energy from Source in and let it completely fill me. I told myself, "I AM a divine being of LOVE and that LOVE pours off of me and effects everything and every one around me."

Yes, it was a wonderful evening. So wonderful, in fact, that I want to do it again! I want to start going out into the world and experiencing it from this place of LOVE. I want to get back to the ME I used to be and enjoy the beauty of life.

That is all. :-)

Thanks for checking out my blog (Deep Blue Static) and for your kind comments. Your blog looks great too and I'm anxious to read more. (We have a lot of the same movie and music interests...I can't believe I forgot about Flatliners!)

Take Care--

PS--I think I added the necessary gadget to follow my blog if you wish.

Nice article! Reminds me of the Law of Attraction ("The Secret"). If only we came with a little alarm that went off like, "Hey! Cut it out! You're doing it again!" and then refocus on what we want, rather than expending energy on what we are trying to avoid!
