The Energy of Thought


Physical reality is an energetic system. There are particles of energy all around you. These particles coalesce to create matter. Your thoughts are energy, your words are energy, and your actions are energy. You create manifestations through thoughts, words, and actions that use energy to form objects, conditions, and experiences. As you bring more energy to any thought, any conversation, and any action, you increase your powers of creation.

To radically change your approach to life you must come to understand how you operate in this energetic environment. Are you bringing energy to everything you do? Or, more likely, do you operate at lower levels of energy?

Energy moves at certain speeds. Low energy is slower, whereas high energy is faster. If you look at a substance like water, you can see that at lower energy levels, water takes the form of ice, and at higher energy levels, water takes the form of vapor. If you add energy to the ice, such as heat, the ice will transform into water and then into vapor. The addition of the energy creates the transformation. If you have been operating at lower energetic levels, you must add energy to every thought, word, and action in order to radically change your life.

Happiness is more energetic than sadness. Walking is more energetic than sitting. Smiling is more energetic than frowning. Passion is more energetic than apathy. Do you see how this system works? Can you understand how your current approach to life would be enhanced with the addition of energy? It is the energy in everything that forms creation in physical reality. You have the ability to reach for and attract more energy. It is a simple matter of focus.

Have you ever used a magnifying glass to burn a piece of paper? The magnifying glass focuses the energy of the sun into a concentrated beam of light that is many more times hotter and thus burns the paper. You have the ability to bring more energy into your life by the practice of focus. You can use the energy that is all around you to think more energetic thoughts. But it takes practice. The magnifying glass is designed to bring small objects into focus. You will have to practice this ability.

The first step is to practice bringing energy into your thoughts. What do we mean by this? The simplest explanation is for you to be aware of the current energetic level of your thoughts and then to replace those thoughts with higher-energy thoughts. This takes time and is not easy at first. It will take some concentration and a little effort. Your focus must be on the quality of thoughts you are thinking. Most of your thoughts are habitual. You obsess about the same things. When you purposely reach for high-energy thoughts, you radically change your habit of thought.

Let’s say you obsessively worry about paying your rent. From the moment you put the check in the mail, you worry about making the next payment. It’s a thirty-day-long habit of thought. You worry about what your landlord will think of you if you’re late. You worry about the shame of being evicted. You worry about losing your job or about all the other bills you also have to pay. These are familiar thoughts, but they are low-energy thoughts. Your work is to bring energy to your approach to thought.

To radically change your approach to thought, you must create a standard for thought. You will no longer accept low-energy thoughts. Your standard has been raised. You now feel for highenergy thoughts. Now, from your higher level of energy, you attract thoughts that support this new stance. When a thought of worry enters your mind, you reach for a powerful thought. When you think “How will I manage to pay the rent?” you reach for more energetic thoughts: “I will pay the rent. I always pay the rent. I have no problems paying the rent or meeting any other obligation.”

This is an example of a high-energy approach to thought. Oh, but we hear you say, “It isn’t accurate; it isn’t true. I always have trouble paying the rent. I always worry about the rent. I have been late many times. The rent is always a problem for me.”

The rent is a problem for you because of your low-energy approach to thinking. Your rent is an issue in your life because you allow low-energy thoughts to consume you. You must realize by now that your thinking creates your reality. Therefore, in order to change your reality to one you prefer, start thinking a new truth. The truth now is this: “The energy I’m bringing to my approach to thought creates a new energy in my life. My life is the result of my thoughts. My low-energy life will be improved through the practice and standards of a whole new approach to thinking. I will no longer tolerate low-energy thoughts. That is no longer my truth. That was the past and this new approach will create my future as I want it to be.”

Their practical teachings provide a greater understanding of the mechanism of physical reality, the Law of Attraction, and how to leverage universal forces to enhance our lives. Joshua’s first book “A Perception of Reality” explains the nature of reality using plain english in an easy-to-understand format. This book is the next step for those awakened individuals seeking higher levels of consciousness and awareness.

Dear Joshua,

If I keep vibrating a certain quality or feeling and it keeps appearing through mates that are like my father, same qualities etc.. Is it possible it is my father who keeps coming back through these mates? Can those who have croaked come back over and over again?

I understand you either attract people because you feel that way or you Definitely don’t want anyone like that in your world The later resonates with me.


Dear Trisha,

You have asked a question that will help many, many people and we want to address the entirety of your question as well as the individual parts. First, you wonder if you are attracting people like your father because your father is coming back to this reality in another incarnation. While he may come back if he wishes to do so and he may even interact with you in some regard, he has not come back in that way and would not do so. This would be too confusing for you and he is aware of that.

We will start by saying that everyone you know or have known in this physical reality you also know in the nonphysical. You interact there and here. You make plans for there and here. You love and adore each other in the nonphysical and you come together in this reality to explore various aspects of your relationship just for the fun of doing so. At times you may not think it’s fun here, but you will definitely have a laugh about it from your nonphysical perspective.

You are not attracting your father as a mate but you see certain aspects of your father in the mates you choose. Let’s see if we can bring that into clarity for you. Imagine the personality of your father and how that personality carried forth into the nonphysical after his transition. In physical form he was love, appreciation, tender, hard working, supportive of his family, caring, and many other wonderful qualities and these are the aspects of his personality that he carried with him to the nonphysical. In his physical body he also carried some traits that were in the form of human baggage. He might have been insecure, fearful or worried. He might have been defensive or overly protective. He might have been angry or disappointed. These traits did not follow him into the nonphysical.

So when you are thinking that your mate has some qualities of your father are you thinking of the loving aspects or the fearful aspects? You get to choose. There is only one person in this world you need to love. It is not a mate or a parent, it is you. You must learn to love yourself and from that standpoint of self-love and selfappreciation, you will attract one who sees in you what you see in yourself. If you love yourself, you will attract someone who sees what you see. If you are insecure about your love for yourself, you will find someone who is insecure in your love for them. Until you change how you feel about yourself, you cannot attract anyone, friends or lovers, who see you for more than you see yourself. Love yourself first. Really own it and mean it. Do not love yourself in order to get someone who will also love you, love yourself regardless of what happens.

So how does one come to love themselves. It is simply a matter of realization that who you are is perfect in this moment. We see your perfection and you must come, over time, to see it as well. You are perfect whether you think you are or not. We use the term “perfect” rather than good or worthy because we want there to be no levels in this meaning. When we say worthy or good you can compare yourself to another and believe yourself to be more or less worthy or good than another. In this case you are perfect and there is no room for improvement. All others are perfect just where they are as well. There is nothing you can do to become better for you are perfect as you are.

You can’t be better and then start to love yourself. You can’t be more beautiful, successful, confident, smarter, more spiritually evolved and then love yourself. You must love yourself unconditionally now, as you are and the side effect will be those other things.

Don’t ever compare yourself to others, only compare you to you. Look at who you are now and see the progress from who you were. See your own evolution and see how< much you’ve grown. The you that you are now is ready for you to love yourself. Until you do, no relationship can manifest in the way you want it to.

Are you starting to understand how this all works? Can you see that the mates you attracted were not like your father; they were like you. They loved you in the exact way you loved yourself. They treated you how you treated yourself. They will always think of you in the exact way you think of yourself. They will always, always be a reflection of who you are being.

Your true desire is to be who you really are. Once you do that, you will attract a mate who sees the best in you. They will love you unconditionally because you love yourself unconditionally. It will not be possible for them to love you in any other way. However, if you continue to love yourself conditionally, it will not be possible for a new mate to love you any other way. Your mates will always be a mirror to who you are being. This is the law of the universe and it cannot be any other way.

Fortunately for you, you understand the mechanism of physical reality better than almost anyone you know. You understand more about this stuff than 99% of humanity. You have the tools and the desire to create your own reality. But it’s an inside job. Meditate, appreciate, and learn to love yourself unconditionally. Don’t dream about the mate, don’t hold on to a picture of what a happy relationship looks like. Forget all that stuff. Work on how you feel about yourself and everything will come from there.

It is simple to imagine and become who you really are. You accomplish it in stages.

Stage One: Understand that who you really are is who you would be in the nonphysical. Just as the personality of your father left behind the fearful aspects of his nature when he transitioned to the nonphysical, you must look at those aspects of your personality that you will leave behind when you make your transition. Any though or behavior that stems from love will be carried forth to the nonphysical and any thought or behavior that stems from fear will be left behind.

Stage Two: Act like the highest version of yourself now. Do not fear, only love. Do not protect yourself for that is a stance of fear. You cannot be harmed by words so stop living life by any other standards than your own.

Stage Three: Go inside. Spend time meditating. Communicate with your inner self. Speak to your guides. Imagine yourself as perfect, strong and courageous.

Step Four: Look for signs of growth and development. When something happens that you don’t like, look at it and see the message, the lesson, the new understanding that comes from it and appreciate it. We’re talking about all events, large and small. If someone honks their horn at you or gives you a rude comment, don’t react in the old ways. Look for the message!

Step Five: Focus on the aspects of your life that are going well.

Step Six: Compare the now you to the old you and see how far you’ve come. Never compare yourself, or your situation to another; compare you to you.

Step Seven: Believe, believe, believe. Believe that all things are coming to you because they are meant to come in order for you to expand. Believe that everything that comes to you is right and is part of the journey and the process. Believe in the power of your mind and your abilities. You are more powerful than you know. You are doing better than you think. Come to terms with the you that is and love every aspect that is you now in this moment and in the next and the next.

You are loved more than you can imagine. You are never alone. We see your amazing perfection. It’s time for you to see what we see.
