In the Age of Awakening, it’s especially important to understand this about your thoughts: Your thoughts are just thoughts. Not things.
“Our thoughts are prayers.” This concept isn’t just from New Age churches, like Unity. In the years leading up to The Age of Awakening, many belief systems made quite a racket by proclaiming beliefs like this.
Have you ever worked with Abraham-Hicks or “The Secret”? To that extent, you tied your worldly aspirations to the belief that your thoughts are like things. Powerful things.
Supposedly the power of your thoughts alone… forms the basis for manifesting success.
Honestly, have you ever sung those words as a hymn in a Unity church? “Our thoughts are prayers.” Back in the day, I sung it often.
Golly, I was such a true believer. In my memory, that hymn went, “Our thoughts are things.”
One sings that hymn in the aspirational way of singing whenever you’re in the congregation at service in your church or synagogue or temple or mosque. Unless your heart is made of stone (or you’re forced to attend the service against your will), whose heart doesn’t sing?
Our thoughts are prayers, the tools that we create with.
Many a blog post could be written over ideas that I used to sing or speak with reverence, loving the church to which I belonged at the time.
Sacred words made me feel purer or wiser or more connected to God, or living in fellowship with the like-minded. Words that were helpful at my level of consciousness, back in the day. Words that now make me cringe.
Are Your Thoughts Things? Are They Really?
No. Physical objects are things, like baseballs and sunflower seeds and little green apples and huge trucks hurtling past you on the highway.
Thoughts are, metaphorically, inside a thing. That big roundish thing atop your shoulders. Your head! Now that’s a thing.
It’s Called “Objective Reality” Because It Contains Objects
Objective Reality is life at the level of human vibrational frequencies. Objective reality includes:
Objects that would show in a YouTube Video.
- Plus what people say and do.
- For example, words and other sounds that would record on a YouTube. 😉
- Facts written down, like baseball scores.
- Or informal facts you can gather. For instance, while I watch bits of baseball on TV, I keep my own stats. How many times do I see players spit or scratch themselves. Yes, I do find that kind of statistic hilarious. Plus, it happens so much more often than home run hits.
By contrast, what is subjective reality?
Whatever interests you, by way of belief and feelings and interpretation — that is called “Subjective Reality.”
Including a belief that “Our thoughts are things.”
From a Vibrational Perspective, Subjective Reality Is Tricky
Tricky, why? Because objective reality exists only at human vibrational frequencies. Whereas subjective experience can occur at any of these three levels:
- Human vibrational frequencies. Earth School’s specialty!
- Astral vibrational frequencies. Corresponding to your subconscious mind, plus the home of spirits like Abraham (of Abraham-Hicks fame).
- The Divine vibrational frequency. Corresponding to your Higher Self. The Divine Vibrational Frequency is “perfection everywhere now.” And this is the frequency of God plus ascended masters like Jesus and Buddha, plus the frequency of Archangels and higher-vibrational angels, such as Archangel Raphael.
Your head is a thing. Human vibrational frequencies!
Not your thoughts, your prayers, your theories, your cherished beliefs, mental hiccups at an astral vibrational frequency.
Nor your most beautiful moments spent in meditation or prayer, at the Divine vibrational frequency.
So how come I just for fun googled “Our thoughts are things” and came up with 59,400,000 hits?
Because we’re living in The Age of Awakening.
By contrast, during the New Age Years (1980-12/21/12) humanity was adjusting big-time to what was in process. This was a special time of transition for earth, not a preview of how it would be for us now, living after The Shift into The Age of Awakening.
What Changed in The Age of Awakening?
When the Age of Awakening began on December 21, 2012… the psychic barrier between human and astral finally disappeared.
Gone, gone, gone.
So it is easier than ever, now, for people to slip-slide into paying attention to life at an astral level and confuse this with reality.
Nowhere is this problem more common than among Abers and others who follow Law of Attraction practices.
Money Isn’t Made Just ‘Cause You Believe Thoughts Are Things
Think I’m kidding? Check out the book I wrote on prosperity .
It contained extensive research into auras of 50 LOA teachers: 100% in spiritual addiction.
Compared to auras of 50 Christian religious teachers: Not in spiritual addiction.
Also the auras of the 50 richest Americans: Not in spiritual addiction.
Plus the auras of the 50 richest people in the world: Not in spiritual addiction, either.
Good to Know in the Age of Awakening
People can say all they like, “Vibrations are higher now.” (Not true, according to “THE NEW STRONG.” Although hey, I just googled that now and got how many hits? 5,860,000)
Preposterous! Since the energetic shift into The Age of Awakening, thoughts are still not things.
They won’t be things so long as you are living in a human body, living on earth, and not living in spiritual addiction.
When your consciousness is positioned at human vibrational frequencies, it’s pretty easy to tell that things are things.
While thoughts are… wherever. Inside your head, maybe.
However subjectively real they may feel, your thoughts are not things.
What Explains the Popularity of “Your Thoughts Are Things” in The Age of Awakening?
Why do so many people today believe that thoughts are things?
What makes it appealing to believe that we can dreamboard desires into manifestation?
When not watching a movie, why do so many of us believe that “If you build it, they will come”?
How is it possible for a sane person to believe sincerly that life on earth could really be a “Field of Dreams“?
Believe? Ha, such an understatement! Millions of us LONG for this to be true.
Our Thoughts Are Things When We’re “Dead.”
That explains it. You see, we’ve all been there. Before this incarnation, for instance, you were a soul. You lived in a body of light. You lived in an astral world, a heaven appropriate to your level of consciousness.
Think about this:
- When you’re in an astral body with no human body attached….
- And astral vibrational frequencies are your default, rather than human vibrational frequencies….
- Plus, there is no human-type objective reality but only objects constructed of energy…
Then, sure, your thoughts are things.
Definitely, whenever you can imagine or feel something strongly and it will manifest instantly.
So that’s the appeal of Abraham-Hicks and The Secret. It appeals to those who are homesick.
Homesick for Heaven?
Very understandable! Well, you’ll be back there soon enough.
But for now all of us are invited to explore being human. We’re living at Earth School, where the overarching purpose of life is to evolve spiritually.
To evolve now, we do best when using The New Rules for The Age of Awakening, such as you can learn about in “THE NEW STRONG: Stop Fixing YourselfAnd Actually Accelerate Your Personal Growth!”
For success in The Age of Awakening, follow today’s rules for success and personal growth. Live on earth, not with your head in some sweet astral clouds.
Wasting precious human time on Law of Attraction practices? That’s a very foolish choice.
In The Age of Awakening, we have extra incentive to stop wasting time on Law of Attraction-type practices. What happens if you keep trying to use (subjective) thought practices to earn (objective) money?
Not only are you unlikely to make much money. Sad enough!
Besides that, what is sure to happen if you believe “Our thoughts are things” and “Our prayers are things”? You’ll move into spiritual addiction, stuck in your spiritual evolution.
How ironic that would be, right? Especially when, living in The Age of Awakening, you could be living THE NEW STRONG.
