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!
