You can only hold one thought at a time, positive or negative. You can substitute a positive thought for a negative thought any time you choose.
Mind blowing, right?
Did you know you could do this?
Up until a few years ago, I didn’t.
I had thought, based on my meditation practice, one could watch their thoughts, and thus, gain more control over them, but no one ever told me I could actually choose my thoughts.
Now that’s a game-changer!
Think of all the applications!
How about for meeting women?
Are you aware of your thought patterns here?
Here were some of mine:
“She’s too pretty. She won’t like me.”
“I’d like to meet her but I don’t know what to say”
“I don’t make enough money to attract the woman I want”
How far do you think I got with these thoughts?
Not very far.
If I had used the law of substitution, I could have changed that.
“I’d like to meet her. Let’s see what she’s like.”
Your substitution thought doesn’t have to be over the top like, “Oh, she wants me”.
In fact, if this is new for you, you’re better off going with a neutral thought – something that’s more believable right now. Over time, you can work your way toward more positive thoughts.
What have you been thinking in terms of meeting women?
Can you think of a substitute thought that’s more empowering?
