Thoughts: what are they and what can you do with them?

The Law of Thought. According to experts, the average person has an estimated 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts per day. That’s about 2,500 – 3,300 per hour. If you then calculate that we sleep 8 hours a day, we think an average of 50 thoughts per minute. Of the aforementioned thoughts, about 90% are the same as the day before. So we are thinking almost the same thing every day. And that completely affects your life, because you don’t change anything.

Several scientific studies show that thoughts have a direct effect on our physical and mental well-being. Despite these current studies, this has been known in the Far East forever. From this you can conclude that by a new way of thinking we can change our physical and mental health.

Thinking processes

Thinking processes are repeated so often that they become automatic. A study by Dr. Joe Dispenza, shows that by age 30 to 35, you have repeated certain thought processes so often that they have become fixed automatic programming. In short: it has become your personality. Thinking conditions your mind and body. It has become an automatic program that creates your personality and then creates your personal reality. Every time you have an automatic thought, you also produce a chemical that will cause you to feel exactly the way you just thought. It can be a positive or negative thought, however, your brain will match the thought again and again with the corresponding useful or harmful chemicals. When we feel happy and good, we produce chemicals (also called neuropeptides) that indeed make us feel that way. When we have bad or insecure thoughts, we produce chemicals that make us feel insecure and small. Every chemical released in the brain is a kind of announcement that the physical body then generates in the body.

Thoughts cause emotions

Initially, thoughts trigger a choice. A choice leads to new behavior (action). This causes an experience, and these experiences create emotions. These may be neutral emotions, or they may be happy or negative emotions. When something happens you first consider how important this event is to your well-being, you unconsciously do this very quickly, depending on the judgment you then get an emotion.

Love that is reciprocated? Good for your well-being, so you become happy. A happy thought activates a series of circuits in your brain that fire a specific pattern, an ordered combination, that makes a corresponding chemical. This will make you feel exactly as you just thought.

A job you lose? Not good for your well-being, so you get sad. In a matter of seconds, you feel insecure and sad. You begin to feel as you think. Indeed, the brain constantly monitors the body. In fact, you begin to think more like you feel. This makes you produce even more chemicals to feel the way you think. Next, you think as you feel and visa versa. It is a vicious cycle of thinking and feeling and feeling and thinking.

You can also start doing this very consciously. For example, when you lose your job it doesn’t feel good, but then if you think through the possibilities it offers you, that feeling can change.

By consciously thinking about the freedom it offers to go into business or find a job that better suits you, such a layoff can suddenly actually make you feel good. In this way, you are taking your attention away from determining with your senses and limitations, and you are bringing your attention to new possibilities.
