Anything you can imagine can come true so you might as well think big. And the crazy thing is that even the best life your mind can imagine is the floor, not the ceiling of what’s possible.
How many times have we been told to Think Big though? The words “Think Big” were what I was told to do during my teenage years.
Despite my best attempts to “think big”, I have only recently started living the life of my dreams.
I grew up practicing positive thinking and visualization. It seems logical that your thoughts shape your reality. If you think positively, your perception of what is going on in your life will of course be more positive. You must think bigger and better! And you will be more open to positive opportunities and people.
To think big is a good habit.
I had no idea how LITERAL this concept really was – and understanding the science behind it was one of the most empowering and life-changing realizations of my life.
Many of you have heard of the “law of attraction” – the idea that you can create your reality with your thoughts and draw what you think about into your life.
However, there are aspects to this idea that are largely misunderstood. You attract what you think, but not what you want. If you want more money but constantly think about how little you have, you will continue to create the experience of lack. Things get more complicated when you suppress the unconscious negative thoughts or fears that are holding you back.
The law of attraction has existed since ages before ancient philosophy and was popularized and re-marketed to the masses through The Secret. The secret teaches this law with examples such as attracting wealth and self-serving goals – but this law affects all aspects of life and can be much more meaningful.
The unpleasantness of the Secret kept me away from him for a while, but this was a concept I had unknowingly applied since my childhood.
Now, I consciously understand that I created my reality. This concept is not wishful thinking.
This is a true law of the universe based on how energy and matter work.
How does it work?
Our reality is not as solid as we think.
Science proved that the matter is 99.9999999999996% free space.
Everything in the universe is made up of atoms made up of subatomic particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons. If you zoom in even closer, you will see that it is composed of constantly vibrating energy. Everything radiates its own unique energy signature.
Quantum physics has shown that everything is energy. Us included! Physical reality is not very ‘physical’ at all. If you really think about it, this can be mind-blowing because we perceive our world very physically.
One of the surprising findings of quantum physics is the “observer effect” – the fact that the observer’s consciousness affects how energy behaves. Scientists have discovered that the presence of an “observer” of an experiment disturbs those who need to be measured and has an effect on electron waves. Many people built on it through their own experiments, including Dr. Masaru Emoto, who discovered that consciousness affects the structure of water crystals.
The flow of information is moving towards a non-mechanical reality. The universe starts to look like a huge thought rather than a big machine. The mind no longer seems to have accidentally entered the material realm, we must greet it as the creator and ruler of the material realm.
And so we are the creators of our reality.
Our 5 physical senses capture only a small fraction of what is actually happening around us. We can only see a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum – but since that’s all we know, we get used to thinking about everything we know.
We spend most of our time focusing on the physical world around us and the conditions we can see. But before things manifest in the physical realm, they are first created – through thought – by vibration.
Thought is energy that vibrates rapidly. Einstein’s theory of relativity E = mc2 shows us that energy and mass are interchangeable. Energy cannot be destroyed. It transforms into matter that is energy in slower vibration. This is when it manifests in our reality that we can see and touch.
If we spend more time imagining our future and matching the vibrations of the life we want to live, we can increase the speed at which our dreams come true. If we truly believed this we wouldn’t spend time musing over small thoughts but we would rather think big and expand our dreams.
“The habitual thought of your conscious mind creates deep grooves in your subconscious mind. If your habitual thoughts are harmonious, peaceful and constructive, this is very suitable for you. “- Joseph Murphy
Think a Bigger Dream
Imagine your biggest dreams in your mind. Visualize the type of person you want to be, how you want to feel, how you spend your lifestyle and time, and the relationships in your life.
If you feel some resistance, pay attention to where it comes from.
Why are we scared to Think Big?
Here are a few reasons why people don’t think big enough:
- Fear your dreams will not come true. You may be protecting yourself from the frustration of failure. Wanting something you can’t achieve.
- A belief that you do not deserve or are not good enough
- Not knowing how it’s possible. Not knowing how to get there from where you are currently standing.
- Fear of success. This is a big thing. You may be afraid of how the money, increased responsibility or focus of attention that accompanies success will change you or whether you will be able to deal with it in the first place.
Look where you were 10-15 years ago. So did “you” know how to get where you are today? How can I handle everything? Most likely, it might seem overwhelming.
But you stand here with more confidence, experience, and connections than before – and you learned and grew to tackle the next step at every step.
It won’t happen overnight. You will take small steps throughout the process and gain experience that will bring you to your dreams. You will make decisions and make some mistakes, but you will be able to overcome that.
We cannot allow our level of being and thinking today to limit our dreams for the future. We cannot let the fears we carry today stop us from looking around to see what is possible on the other side.
To Think Big means Trusting the Subconscious
If you look at the systems in our world, you will see fear and limitation everywhere. Think of all the things we built out of fear or accepted collectively to create a sense of security and protect ourselves.
We forget that we are eternal beings that are much larger than our physical bodies and much larger than our selves. As we grow, we become conditioned to believe that we are limited.
And we forget that we are connected.
Separation is an illusion because we are all one.
We may think we have to solve everything ourselves. But we always – our subconscious, intuition, higher self, our spirit guides – guide whatever you want to do.
And here’s the important point, especially for those who are successful and planners. Our physical minds are not designed to know HOW our dreams will bear fruit.
The higher mind, the subconscious, knows how everything will turn out. Your ideas and premonitions, your books, your songs, the conversations you overhear, the people in your life, your emotions and your synchronicity gently nudge you in a million ways.
The higher mind is not limited to the concept of time. We collectively agreed on the concept of time in order to perceive our lives linearly. Time is a minor aspect of the fourth dimension, and our concept of time helps us perceive change. If you’re open to the idea that time is an illusion, and there are billions of parallel realities (or consequences) arising from every decision we make – you can begin to see how this is possible in the fifth dimension and beyond. Treat all results as the Now.
The Higher self knows everything. It has access to universal intelligence and wisdom. It knows your soul’s mission and gently guides you towards your goal. Emotion is the translation of the vibration of our higher self. Our emotions help us know how close or far we are to our soul’s purpose. Negative emotions such as anxiety and choking are signals that we are going astray, while true excitement and joy tell us that we are in the right direction.
We must reconnect with our intuition and learn to trust the higher mind. Communication gets stronger when we are open to guidance. We can only think big when we listen to our spirit more.
Start keeping a diary and ask questions to your subconscious. Ask questions right before you go to sleep. “What is my gift to the world?” “Am I on the right track?” You will get answers within a day or week. Even instantly!
Our conscious mind will always limit our ability to think big because it is limited.
You are unlimited
I have spent most of my life pushing, planning, and thinking to achieve my goals. Trusting and surrendering sounds very counterintuitive. I like being in the driver’s seat because it keeps me in control. I didn’t know that our higher selves are excellent drivers – if only we could learn to hand over the wheel.
It is wasteful to allow our dreams to be limited to the limits of our rational minds. To think bigger and believe our dreams are possible needs the input of our subconscious mind.
Escape from the World
Think big when it comes to your dream lifestyle, career, home, car, relationship. Then dream bigger. Imagine your family, your community, the world you want to create. Think about the values you have developed and the emotions you want to feel and share. Paint a brighter future and notice how it feels.
There is a great polarization in the world – a deep contrast between light and dark. The contrast will only appear stronger as more people awaken to higher consciousness.
It is time to dare to think bigger and dream without limits! This is so that we can create the reality we want to live with.
If we live in a holographic universe then making a difference isn’t as daunting as it seems. An individual is all it takes to make a huge surge impact in their families, workplaces, communities and then the world. Due to the lack of time and space in higher dimensions, a loving thought or prayer for your family instantly reaches their spirits.
There are thousands of people in this world whose energies are vibrating at high frequencies. Their souls volunteered to come to Earth to raise the frequency of the planet during this turbulent time. Most energies act as lanterns or antennas, although many are not consciously aware. Just by going through a crowd, their energies begin to awaken the consciousness of others (but usually all this happens at the soul level subconsciously).
We are much stronger than we thought. For this reason, it is very important to take care of our energy and raise our vibrations by developing positive thoughts and emotions, meditating, drinking clean water, eating fruits, thinking big and vegetables with high vibration.
And collectively, our thoughts and intentions get stronger. The Maharishi Effect or Phenomenon found that when more than 1% of a community followed a meditation program, the crime rate decreased by an average of 16%. We need to think big about how we can promote meditation because it could shift our society.
“Miracles are something impossible from an old conception of reality and possible from a new one” – Charles Eisenstein
A new level of consciousness is needed to awaken the world to great changes. What is comforting is the potential of the Centenary Ape Effect, the idea that we must reach the extremes of sufficiently awakened people to have the critical mass for a global awakening.
Yes, many systems and organizations need change – but even before that most importantly – we can fill our hearts with love and consciously choose a beautiful world. Lies and illusions break down when we remember the truth of who we are.
We are all eternal, boundless souls connected with each other and with nature. We must see the light in everyone we meet so that we can spread acceptance to everyone.
“A person is part of a whole we call the ‘Universe’ – a limited segment in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and emotions as something separate from others – a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. This illusion is a kind of prison for us, it makes us feel personal. It must be to free ourselves from this prison by expanding our compassion circles to embrace all living things and all nature with its beauty. ”- Albert Einstein
When we know that we are all one and that this separation is an illusion created in our mind, we will begin to live from a new perspective where judgment, hatred and violence are incomprehensible. Old systems built in fear begin to break down as they already do.
We can think big and enlighten the world by living in the truth and seeing others in their truth. Living in truth means thinking thoughts that are in line with what you truly believe. Think big.
