Controlling your life with Thought

I've always been into quantum physics and the idea that the things you think about are the things that you attract in your life. I've always believed it to be a theory worth living by and I have found myself to be all the happier to think positive things and send out for great things to happen to me instead of worrying about negative things and attracting dysfuntion. So my boyfriend, two friends, and I decided that we would go into renting a house together. We immediately (within a month) found the PERFECT house. I mean it is really huge and a steal for the price. Then we found out that the house was for sale and for a ridiculously low price since it had been on the market for such a long time. We decided that that house could not go without us atleast trying to buy it. Well last night we signed the papers to rent the place. Ethan (my beloved boyfriend) mentioned how it was crazy how everything suddenly locked into place with our lives (he just got a brand new great job, I recently got a raise, and we were both living with out parents trying to get debts cleared)and we submitted the papers to get pre-approved to buy the house. I said "it's funny how you make a life decision and then it happens. We decided to find a house and bam, perfect house!" Well, this morning I got a call from the realtor saying that it's VERY LIKELY that I will be getting this house to OWN! I will own my dream house! This place is 2871 square feet, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, detached garage, a laundry room bigger than my current bedroom, 2 living rooms, a gigantic kitchen, breakfast nook, and dining room. It also has a brand new roof and new carpet and remodeled bathroom. This house is THE perect house and now all of it could very well be MINE! It's like suddenly, all my dreams came true! Now if only my boyfriend asked me to marry him!

What has quantum physics to do with our thoughts? I wonder if they are really related cause if they do, we're in for a great discovery in the history of mankind. Or maybe it is just a figure of speech. I just can't figure it out.

If you've ever watched a movie called "what the bleep do we know?" they explain that there are thought experiments in quantum physics. Also if you've ever read a book called "The Secret" it talks about how the things and activities you think about attract what can actually happen to you in your life. Basically, for myself and myself only, it's that keeping a positive mind frame and thinking about good things happening to you will bring you positivity. Terminally confused or not, I am happy happy happy!!!!

Well, that all sounds very nice in theory and I think that you have been quite lucky in achieving that. I have read about this idea of attracting what you want out of life by your thoughts and well, I have been trying for a long time and I'm not entirely sure that it works. I try to remain positive although there are days when I do feel quite low. I read the book 'The Secret' and I also watched the dvd and I must admit they were both very powerful and full of inspiration. However, there are a lot of things that I would like to achieve in life and I just don't think they are going to happen as a result of me constantly thinking about them. Perhaps I'm a little impatient but all the same I like to start seeing some results before I place any firm belief in this idea. Perhaps I should return to another viewing of 'The Secret' to see if I'm doing anything wrong. Andrew

Well the idea to me is just STAY POSITIVE! I am glad you understand what I am saying! When I first read the Secret I decided to start small. I decided to visualize myself finding money on the ground and I visualized it in the same spot everytime I thought about it. 2 weeks later I found a dollar in that exact spot. While I was visualizing a $20, when I saw the $1 I was so excited that something like that happened I didn't care that it wasn't EXACTLY what I was visualizing. The way I think about it, your thoughts ATTRACT the things that happen. I was visualizing MONEY and while it wasn't exactly what I was thinking it was still in the same ballpark, being money. I daydream often, and I make sure that I daydream about what I want in my life. Sometimes it's easy to start thinking about and worrying about the bad things that can (and does) happen but I've found that with staying in a positive mind set as much as I can (I have low days as well) when the bad things hit me, they are not as bad, and I can deal with them easier because I am looking towards the brighter side of things.

Yes, I like your words and I find them quite encouraging! I still have some belief in this idea and I'm just trying to stengthen that belief. I'm trying to remain positive on a daily basis as well now and I meditate daily and try to visualise nice things in my life. Andrew

The law of attraction doesn't leave much room for doubt. You have both read the Secret, the main concept is Ask, Believe, Receive. Believing is the hardest and most important part of the equation. Doubt hinders the process, because it is a negative vibration. It is a process to rid one self of doubt and fear, but a process well worth the effort. Sincerely and With Appreciation.

I'm happy for you, sort of...it's cool that you have the house...but I don't believe that 'quantum physics' did it...we are sovereign and we have the ability to make decisions in life...the book of Genesis says we are created in God's image and His likeness...this means that we have the ability to make choices that effect our surroundings... I hope your boyfriend does marry you...after all, you know the old addage...why buy the cow when the milk is FREE...

God created the world with thought. We are in his likeness. As long as we are thinking positive things we will be attracting positive things. The evils of this world can and will intersect with our lives but as long as we stay positive it will not get the best of us. You obviously share a different set of spiritual beliefs as I do but we can both agree that God is God and he will take care of his children each and individually.

Well, I'm all for positive thinking but that doesn't stop wickedness from invading and many times consuming our lives...history proves this out. Look at Adam and Eve, they were perfect and yet, here we are. Life is a series of chance and God...things happen for a reason, life happens to all of us - the bible says that the rain falls on the Just and Unjust...you can think positively all you want, that won't change things. 10% of life is going to happen to you, 90% is how you react to it...that's where I believe that positive thinking can help you, but O so far...somewhere, faith has to ignite and trusting God to bring you through whatever you're facing, otherwise its just you and your positivity...

Patorlamont, I do realize what you are saying, Ecclesiastes will tell us all that there is nothing new under the sun and we are all left to chance. The wise man has eyes in his head while the fool walks in darkness. The same fate overtakes them both. Fortune and misfortune happens to the just and unjust people in this world. But with positive thinking and meditating on the things you want, it is a way, for me, to Pray to God, with the full faith that he will deliver. Positive thinking, praying, meditating, it all comes with the faith that what you pray for has already been delivered. When I am thinking positively, or thinking that "I want a house" Though I did not mention in my post that I prayed for it, well, I believed that it would happen because I prayed for it. Praying is a connection to God that in my body feels like deep thought. Meditation. I usually don't mention the fact that I pray because it's not what everyone believes in, but the fact that I am meditating, thinking about the positive things and good things happening to me cannot be ignored by a non-believer.

Awesome, just keep the perfect wedding day firm in your mind, 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes before bed, and before long it will be the big day. Gratz on the house, that is how it works. Sincerely and With Appreciation.

Most of the people that thinks small has a potential to end up small things, unlike the one that who dreams BIG they are the one who get most..Believing in POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT pays off there's nothing harm done if we belive in this principle.We cannot entertain any negative thoughts that may hinder the positive..It is also in the principle that you will see in the religous perspective.. Even in the BIBLE you will see this kind of princeiple.. Theres nothing harm done even if we try.

Wow seems you have hit the jackpot. I wish i had your luck because right now my house is very small and i have to get myself a good house soon or i will have to stay here for the rest of my studies. Although this is a good house i prefer a better one but the prices of houses are skyrocketing right now and each house is costing a fortune if you ask me. I should get one soon. And by the way don't worry. Your boyfriend will propose you soon! All the best! Cheers!

That's AWESOME! Keep thinking those positive thoughts. I agree that we attract into our lives the things we think about. And when we think about positive things, positive things happen. Even though I was laid off over a year ago, I am still thinking positive. Part-time work at different places has resulted in me networking with people, which has made me feel more a part of the community, which has resulted in people looking out for me and giving me great leads. Keep on dreaming, and keep us posted as things come true!

that's great you got such a good deal on a house. the opportunity is right to buy a house right now if you can afford one due to all the foreclosures. houses are a steal right now when it comes to overall pricing.
