Mind Over Matter

The human brain is an incredibly powerful organ.

Without it we would be nothing.  The brain controls our senses, movements and how we interact with the world around us.

But most importantly, the brain controls our mind.  Your consciousness, perceptions and memories.

I believe that if you take control of your consciousness, you can reconstruct your reality.  I know, it sounds really hippie-dippy, but it works in many instances.

We know this because of the placebo effect.  If you take something or do something that you are told will have some sort of a beneficial outcome, more often than not you will experience the desired outcome.

But the deciding factor is your belief.  The focus of your consciousness.  Are you truly convinced?

This is the mind-over-matter thing people always refer to, and it's how I am choosing to live my life.  I enjoy the idea of having some sort of control over what becomes my reality, not only because I am a type-A control freak, but also because it is a more positive way of living (for me).

Sometimes I get frustrated with the idea of "it is what it is", or "that's just the way things are".  There's no control, and there's no accountability in that.

Your consciousness controls your perceptions, and your reality is strictly based on the way you perceive the world.  If you can change the way you perceive things, you can change your reality.

So try to master your consciousness, and use it to oust negativity and to start living a more positive life.  A life in tune with your wants and needs.  Don't allow things to "just happen" to you, make a conscious effort to dictate what your reality will become.

Obviously, some things are out of our control, but chances are they are in direct relation to a choice made by someone we have allowed into our world.  Funny thing is, we have control of who we surround ourselves with as well.
