Thought Exchange

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

DavidFriedmanToday I was a participant in a workshop put on by renowned composer and author, David Friedman. Taken from information in his groundbreaking book, The Thought Exchange, David outlined how our minds are conditioned to think the same thoughts over and over. Thoughts we have sometimes believed as truth since childhood.

Yet as adults, we are frustrated when our lives do not improve no matter how hard we work to produce new results. The disconnect occurs because we are using the same old thoughts about what is possible in our lives.

In order to change our results, we must start with changing, or more precisely “exchanging” our thoughts. We are conditioned to believe what we think about something is the only thought possible for us. It is our belief, our truth. In reality there are unlimited numbers of thoughts that are possible.

Do you think you are incapable of doubling your income?

Do you think you will never find your soul mate?

Do you think opportunities have passed you by?

Imagine you can take that long held thought you have back to the store and exchange that thought for a new one.

What? How is that possible? I know, that thought of yours may not look so good, but it is comfortable and has served you well. It has kept you safely where you are, if not happy.

Just like trying on a new pair of shoes, selecting a new thought about what is possible for you will create some physical sensations. There’s a rub on the heel, it pushes on your little toe. It feels uncomfortable.

If you exchange your old thought of “I can’t” to a new thought of “I can,” you will feel uncomfortable. A knot in your stomach. Your heart may race. You may feel nauseous. You will want to revert back to those comfortable old shoes.

Hold the new thought. Stay with the sensations. Allowing yourself to feel the uncomfortable sensations is the key to taking on a new thought about yourself. Positive thinking feels good in the moment, but a lasting change of thought requires acknowledging those uncomfortable sensations and proceeding anyway.

Whatever you see in your world is a reflection of the thoughts you have about yourself. When you look in a mirror, if you do not like the color shirt you see, do not expect the mirror to change it. Only you have the power to exchange your thoughts to reflect a new belief about yourself.

“When we were able to be with our sensations, infinite possibilities opened up.” David Friedman



Colors of the Mind Part Two

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

If you read the last post, you had an "apple experience" without even visiting the market. If you didn't, read it now for an eye opening exploration of the power of your mind.

Then come back- I'll wait for you.

What made the "apple experience" work for you?

The apple became real to you as you used your imagination, one of your intellectual faculties. Imagination was something you used often as a child.

Remember lying on your back on a grassy hill and studying the clouds in the sky? You saw faces and animal shapes as your imagination was free to create another world out of the fluffy white formations.

Now, as adults, we live in a world of realities, of what “is”. But, when we allow our minds to think about what we “want to be,” we let imagination back into our lives.

As Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. Look around you.

The chair, the window, the building you’re in, everything you see in the world today began as an idea spawned from someone’s imagination. Were it not for imagination, we would not travel in planes, or read by electric lights, or communicate with the help of the Internet.

Anything you see in its physical form started as an imagined idea. Especially now, in this day of immediate communication, ideas are the most valuable currency in the world.

You are only one idea away from having everything you want in your life.

Let your intellectual faculty of imagination produces an abundant supply of all you "want to be."  Imagine…..what's possible for you!

Tomorrow — What's the key you have in your mental pocket that unlocks every door?


"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. "
Albert Einstein
