Our mind is like the creative coordinator behind the inception of our dreams and aspirations. The direction that we place behind our thoughts and corresponding beliefs can either envelop us in anxiety and fear or propel us to great heights.
Our mind is truly magical when we believe in its power as a tool for manifesting our purpose and intention. Our ego gets a bad rap, and is often viewed as our enemy within. But we should not combat our ego’s processes or think of our ego as an entity in itself; this only serves to enhance a battle mode mentality that further undermines our journey to our greater goals.
Our mind, our ego, is just another part of our inner brilliance. When we come to an enlightened understanding of our ego, we naturally give way to a higher state of thinking. When we open that space of awareness, we learn to love the power and beauty of our minds, and to draw all the benefits it has to offer us.
Finding Your Inner Magic Through the Power of Self-Belief
As you think, so shall you become.
– Bruce Lee (more quotes)
We are the creators of what we think and feel; if we can nourish a limiting thought or belief, then we can just as easily do the same for a non-limiting one. If we can build walls in our mind that obstruct our progress, then we can definitely knock them down. We are all gifted with the innate power to attract our deepest desires into our physical space — we only need to believe that we can.
Self-doubt is a silent serpent that creeps into the patterns of our thinking and eats away at our self-belief. The miracle and magnitude of our soul does not contain self-doubt. We are the ones that open a door for it to walk through.
Through mindfulness and moments of introspection we can sift through the intricacies of our thoughts, distinguishing what takes us toward our contentment from what moves us away from it. The decision is always ours.
The power of our thoughts
Our thoughts and imagination are the only real limits to our possibilities.
– Orison Swett Marden
Our minds are the home of our rational thinking, but they are also the birthplace of our full and unfiltered imagination. Essentially we need both, yet our imagination is stifled by rationality and logic. Our imagination needs freedom in order to see the true wonder of what could be. Our logical thinking looks for the guarantee, yet creative thinking searches for the boundless beauty of possibility.
We can only bring into our sphere what we put the power of our intention behind, like a rocket that needs that big burst of fuel to lift it off the ground. When we believe in the magic of possibility a whole new world presents itself to us: borders dissolve, barriers come crashing down, and we catch a fierce glimpse of limitlessness and expansion. A child’s eyes untouched by the reality we find ourselves in have the ability to grasp the realm of imagination and all its gifts. When we can look at life through the lens of our inner child, everything is possible.
Boosting self-belief and inner confidence
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave; find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.
– Henry David Thoreau
Our self-belief and inner confidence take a battering through what we deem as failure and not quite hitting the mark. When we feed into these thoughts we provide them with a stronger foundation to keep knocking us off our feet and keeping us down when we inherently know that we can take flight. When we fall, we need to defiantly get back up. When we stumble, we need to draw upon our inner resilience and pull ourselves up to balance. How we rise is more meaningful than how we actually fall. How we deal with everything, is everything.
If we allow our mindset to remain locked on our failures, we lose every second of chance and magic that the present moment holds. We have programmed ourselves to fear loss and making mistakes, yet the greatest loss arising from a lack of self-belief is the cost to ourselves. Self-belief is a key to the entry-door of our highest potential, and we own that master key.
Our inner magic and making our mark
From my own experience, I want to say that you should follow your heart, and the mind will follow you. Believe in yourself, and you will create miracles.
– Kailash Satyarthi
Our heart pumps our truth and authenticity. It never gives false hope. When we can adjust our thoughts to align them with the promise and ingenuity of our heart, then we heighten our magnanimous intellectual and intuitive processes. As human beings there is nothing that separates us. We all have the infinite ability to create, conceive brave new ideas, and design our lives around making our earthly mark as individuals. We are the architects of all that we seek to inspire and nurture.
Our ego processes that cage us in can lead us away from our inner magic; our center of love and exquisite connection. How can we begin to even imagine our greatest potential unless we believe that it exists within us all? The vastness of our own infinite magic is something that only we can access and fully explore. Our thoughts and beliefs are our instruments for permeating what lies within. When we change our thoughts we can create another reality. Our mind should not eclipse our heart, for together they form our own unique synergy.
We are made of star-stuff
You have to believe. Otherwise, it will never happen.
– Neil Gaiman, Stardust
The very same subtlety, omnipresence and mystery that surround us are intrinsically woven in to all we are. The flowers that bloom, the trees that rise to their full might, and the birds that take flight in freedom-filled skies never deny their ability to share and present their gifts. Sitting within our body and soul are the remnants of stars as old as our universe — who are we to deny our own supreme magic?
