The Truth About Mind Over Matter

Mind Over Matter Manifesting

You know, when we think of this phrase we usually always do it when we’re in some sort of pain.

But when you learn about quantum mechanics and metaphysics and how your thoughts create your reality, it starts to take on a whole meaning.

Everything you see around you started as a thought in someone’s brain, everything you have or don’t have is a result of your way of thinking.

So mind is truly over matter (material things/things that exist tangibly). If you want something imagine it in your reality with a good feeling and it will eventually materialise.

I’m living proof this is truth.

When I was living in Australia, I was unhappy with where I was living.  I was sharing a very swanky apartment on the seventh floor of a brand new apartment block right in the city of Perth.  I hated the view of the city and not being close to any nature or animals.  We couldn’t open the windows or balcony door because of the traffic and people noise.  It was a lot of money to pay to be miserable.

So I began to think about the perfect place, fantasising about it, exactly what I wanted and loving the idea of what I wanted.  I wanted a car too and I had the perfect car in mind.

I started browsing Gumtree.com to see what the prices were for the kind of car I was looking for and found her.  A light blue hatchback, double the price of the money I had.  Within a month or two, the money manifested and I bought the car.

A week later, I was again looking for apartments.  What I had been fantasizing about was an apartment close to the beach where I could install internet, get a cat and put up a pole as at the time I was training in pole gymnastics.  I found the perfect apartment, a two minute walk away from the beach with an extra bedroom where I had friends stay who were visiting Australia.  I also got a kitten and my friend leant me her pole as her place was too small for it.  As far as the internet goes, I managed to charm the geeks at the service provider into giving me a contract despite not being a resident.

Everything that I wanted became reality because I would think about it with joy and intention.

I have manifested many things in my life, Macbooks and a professional camera as gifts, the perfect home for me at the time.

Of course, there are some things I haven’t manifested and this brings me to another important point about mind over matter.

If you don’t believe you can have something, its very hard to put your mind over that matter.  There are some things I really want badly, but I’ve learned that deep down I don’t quite believe I can have or deserve whatever it is I want, and even sometimes I think I may not think Id be able to handle it once I got it.

Putting your mind over matter is three fold.

1. You gotta know what you want and imagine it with joy and intention.  Enjoy day dreaming about having it, or it being a part of your life.

2. Believe that you can have it.

If you’ve read anything about The Law of Attraction, they call it “Ask, Believe, Receive”.

Now a lot of people tend to have a problem believing they can have something and this is where the third process comes in.

In order to get into a place where you can confidently believe that you deserve to receive and live whatever it is you want, you have to be mindful of your present blessings all day every day.  That means, you have to become aware of what you already have and how it makes your life good.

Now, if you feel like you have nothing to be thankful for, I can assure you that you do.  You have access to a computer to be reading this post for starters.  You have eyes and comprehension and ability.  You probably have a warm bed to sleep in, in a safe home and when you wake up you can take a hot shower and there is usually something to eat that keeps you alive.  There is at least one person in your life that cares about you being alive and thriving.

Even that basic list should be enough to change the way you think about your present existence and when you start counting your blessings, more blessings come to you!  But also, you begin to feel good and when you feel good and happy and blessed, its easier for you to understand that you CAN have the things you want and therefore its easier to believe in whatever you’re trying to manifest into your life.

It takes practice but believe me it is so worth it!

    Thanks for the great article – it has really got me thinking about things and how I am wanting things but not being appreciative of what I currently have – so thanks – I will work on it more

  • I never thought about the connection between gratefulness and attracting good things in our lives, but it makes perfect sense. Being grateful is one way of affirming that we are capable of having the same kinds of things we desire. Thanks for the epiphany. 🙂

  • Life became so much better when I figured it out 🙂

  • I loved this article, and the part about having problems in believing you deserve something — so true !

    Perfect timing – thank you. I needed these reminders. (I recommend reading “Illusions” by Richard Bach.)

    This is so true. Let me share how ”mind over matter” has worked for me.

    I am a junior school drop out and although I literally had any academic qualification, I dreamed of a comfortable life of luxury.

    I began my career as a junior executive in an advertising agency and worked real hard to achieve my dreams.

    I became a Group Account Director with an international agency, had an overseas expatriate posting as Business Director, in Taiwan, with another renowned agency, and my last appointment was that of a CEO of a boutique agency.

    In that time, I had owned several cars, bought a private 3-storey townhouse and now own my own retirement nest that is full paid for.

    At 52 this year, I have just quit my job to enjoy life a little bit and should I decide to go back to work, it would probably be one that allows me more time for myself.

    It has been the strong and positive head-space that I have put myself in that has allowed my to achieve everything in my life.

    I hope my story will inspire others to think positive and you will achieve whatever you wish. My philosophy in life is ”We are all masters of our destinies”.
