Where Your Mind Goes, Energy Flows – Ernest Holmes

How many mountains began as mole hills? Remember what made them grow so big? Were you focusing on the problem or the solution?

How many opportunities began as an exciting adventure, then was lost in the abyss of fear? Remember what sent it into the black hole to never be entertained again? Were you focusing on the excitement of the adventure or everything that may go wrong on the journey?

How many people have you pushed out of your life? Remember what made you push them away? Were you focusing on all the reasons why you were deserving of the love or all the reasons why you were undeserving of the love?

Answering these questions for ourselves may help us understand that our focus dictates the attitude of our journey and the state of our destination. We can let our mind wander to its darkest corners where it tells us the sad and scary stories, paralyzing and convincing us that those corners are the safest space to live in. We can let our mind wander to its open fields, where the horizon is inviting us on a journey to discover self, people, love, and the miracles of the unknown.

If to dark corners or open fields, our mind’s wandering will take our energy right along. Our approach to life is the beginning of this mind walking. Approach life focusing on the dark corners and the mind will take you there dragging your energy with it – depleted, afraid, hopeless, and sad. Approach life focusing on the open fields and the mind will take you there skipping along with energy – excited, amazed, and grateful in adoration.

Every morning when we open our eyes, we can take an inspiring stroll or lock ourselves away. I hope, for energy’s sake, we all choose an inspiring stroll. Happy wandering friends.

  1. Lily,
    I really like this seed, especially since I’m looking forward to something this weekend and I’m hoping I’ll continue to concentrate on my excitement instead of any possible anxiety. Thank you for the reminder that we need to try to focus on the positive, not the negative!

  2. Amazing seed, Lily! I like the breakdown and the description of the effect that our particular type of thinking can have on our attitudes and energies. I have experienced it first hand so very happy to see someone mention it! I will also add that if with our negative thoughts we can feel depressed and anxious then why think positive thoughts so that we are uplifted and driven. Thank you for this post!

  3. I am so glad the both of you were able to appreciate this seed. This quote has been a daily reminder for me to be conscious of my thinking and where my mind decides to wander to. I enjoy the open fields, but the dark corners do seem inviting at times. It’s an every day practice for me personally, and it so comforting to know other minds need a reminder to wander into open fields as well.

  4. I am a first-timer here, duly connected, thanks to Tim’s reblog. I like the pearls of wisdom you are purveying, Lily. Thought itself is energy, so thinking in right directions will enable one’s ensuing action to reach the desired target…best wishes… Raj.

  5. I’m planning a cross-country road trip, and I keep getting scarred and thinking of what could go wrong. Today I’m going to get excited about it. Thanks

  6. Another lovely post on this site. You never come here and go uninspired. Bravo!

  7. Great post Lily. I am always so amazed that we are able to embrace the negative outcome of any situation much more easily than we will embrace an outrageously positive one that serves our highest good.

  8. Pleased to meet you. I choose to take “an inspiring stroll”. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂

  9. Thanks you for sharing this information. I think that this was quite useful as the questions made us go into a reflective mood. So this was great. Thank you.
