YOUR THOUGHTS AFFECT THINGS AROUND YOU – PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
Did you know that your thoughts can also affect things around you? That’s because thoughts release signals, and those signals can be received by things around you and people connected to you.
You’ve probably had this experience where you were thinking about someone and that person suddenly showed up, or called you, or sent you a message. Or maybe you were thinking about a particular thing and even though you hadn’t said anything about it to anyone, someone near you started thinking the same thing and actually voiced that thought. Science calls it telepathy: a transference of thought from one mind to another by extrasensory means. But if you understand the spirituality behind the science, you’ll become ever more careful about the thoughts you allow.
I don’t allow just any thought in my mind. If I don’t want to create certain thoughts in someone near me, I won’t think them, because I know I can transmit those thoughts.
We all transmit thoughts, and sometimes we inadvertently transmit negative thoughts into our environment that cause it to turn on us and attack us. Did you know, for instance, that your room has thoughts from you? The walls, furniture, clothing, etc., in your room are made from materials that have memory and can receive and retain information from you, and whatever they’ve gotten from you can remain in them. That’s why you’ve got to be careful the kinds of thoughts you let run through your mind, so you don’t make something happen that you don’t want.
Why do you think the Lord so often tells us, “Fear not”? It’s because if you allow thoughts of fear, they’ll affect your mind and stop the power of God from flowing in your direction. You’re going to have to discipline your mind so you can use it correctly. Start learning to think happy thoughts. Practise it until you become good at it, such that whenever negative thoughts of discomfort, frustration, anger, annoyance, bitterness, etc., come to you, you can easily say no to them and change your mind.
Change your thinking; start by saying the right things, uttering words of gratitude, and singing songs of praise to God.This is how you can use your mind to cause good things to flow in your direction and stop the wrong, negative, or evil things from happening around you.
