Can Positive Thoughts Be Magical?

Some months ago I noticed a new plant growing beside the cluster of plants by the patio outside of my office.  I loved the leaves of this mystery plant and wondered what kind of plant it was.

Our Goldenrod

Then finally the plant grew golden yellow tops that look sort of like mini Christmas trees flocked in golden yellow. Now I was even more curious to know the identity of this plant.

And believe it or not, just days later, I got my answer. As I was reading the Houston, Texas newspaper, I spotted a picture with a couple of different types of plants.

The picture was in an article about gardening.  Looking at the picture I was drawn to the plant in the background. “That looks like the plant growing by my patio!” I said to myself. I was excited! Underneath the picture the caption told me that the plant in the background was goldenrod.

You may disagree, but

I’d say that my positive thoughts and being curious about that plant’s identity brought me results in just a few days…as if by magic!

Later I started looking in some of our herb books for pictures and information about goldenrod. From what I found, I do believe it’s goldenrod that’s taken up residence in our yard. And I love it! Currently it’s the only plant by my patio that’s blooming, so of course, it’s getting more of my attention than the other plants.

I don’t remember the many uses for goldenrod as an herbal remedy, but I do remember it‘s used for a health challenge that my husband has. But since he’s just started taking Chinese herbs for that, he’ll pass on trying goldenrod as a remedy, at least for now.

Wouldn’t it be interesting, even magical, if goldenrod was part of the Chinese herbal formula he’s taking?

Yesterday I learned that goldenrod is the state flower of Nebraska. So that tells you goldenrod is honored, just as we honor the bluebonnet as our state flower here in Texas. How pretty the beautiful yellow goldenrod blooms would look beside our beloved bluebonnets! I love seeing yellow and blue together.

But bluebonnets grow in the springtime here, and now it’s autumn. So maybe bluebonnets and goldenrod never have the same growing season.

So, let’s get back to the positive thoughts thing. I make a habit of expecting the best and avoiding thoughts that are not so positive.

A few weeks ago as we walked to the park, we encountered a neighbor we know. He mentioned that his wife doesn’t walk in the park because of the mosquitoes.  I couldn’t remember ever seeing or feeling mosquitoes in our park where we often take walks.

But then maybe a couple of days later as we were leaving the park, right across from the house of the neighbor who told us about the mosquitoes, Brian said “Mosquitoes keep biting me!”

Was his mind influenced by what the neighbor told us?

Mosquitoes weren’t bothering me. I didn’t even see any. Nor did I expect to. And I’d say that’s because I do my best to keep my thoughts positive.

How can you have positive thoughts?

Start with these lyrics from my song, ‘You Own the Key’

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Imagine what your life might be
If you arose each day with glee.
You own the key
to live life joyfully.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

What would make you arise with glee?

Figure that out and write that down somewhere.  A journal would be an ideal choice. Then visualize what you’ve written about daily, shortly after you arise or while still in bed. The more you think about things that excite you and make you happy, the more positive thoughts you’ll have.

And the more of those you have, the more likely you are to have things magically show up for you!

Try it! You’ll like it!

Attract what you want with your positive thoughts, visualizations, etc. Then you get to experience the magic of the Laws of Attraction in action!

Till next time…

Wishing you peace, love and happiness,

Joyce Marie

    I own the key to my destiny, when I think I can , no matter how hard it is, I really can do it. Five months ago, I don’t know anything about computers, even the mere putting it on, I don’t know, when I tried to explore it I don’t know what tab is until my three year old nephew told me to close some tab to open the ohters, just imagine, a 3 year old kid teaching me! my son would sometimes grab my hand, unaware the mouse is already on air LOL, I don’t even know what domain or blogsite is, by constant reminding myself that I can learn computer the results just slowly came in. I believe I own the key to my destiny. Now, five moths after I do video editing and do video SEO. If you believe you can then go for it.

    I think positive thoughts are essential! But I also believe that you have to take positive action to make dreams come true. That’s funny about the mosquitos though, I read years ago of someone who was convinced that they could keep them away in the same way.

  20. Joyce Says:

    Hi Lex, I completely agree that you have to take positive action to make dreams come true. Thank you for sharing!

  29. Jane@Natural Remedies for Depression Says:

    I had a similar experience with mosquitos the other day. I was sitting outside for a few hours without noticing a single mozzie. Then my husband came out – he has been a bit paranoid about mozzies lately. He was worried about them when he came out and he started getting bitten a few minutes later. Usually I’m the one who gets bitten, not him.

    Hi Jane! Thanks for sharing your similar experience! This is the first time I’ve heard of mozzies.

    I saw on your blog, that you have an acupuncture degree in Australia. My daughter, an acupuncturist, spent part of her college education studying in Brisbane. She informed us of some cool Aussie words that I had not heard before.

  31. Lance Says:

    I do strongly believe in the power of positive thought. Ideas become reality if backed by action. Whatever is created was initially a thought before it became a reality. Nobody can deny this. But, all thoughts are not converted into reality because they are not backed by firm belief. Once you believe in your thought it will become a reality sooner than later. I strongly believe in the statement “Whatever the mind believes it achieves”.

  33. Mickey Says:

    think the law of attraction is actually a Biblical principle. The Bible says that “as a man thinketh, so is he”, and “life and death are in the power of the tongue”. In other words what we think and say is directly related to what we get. If we are constantly talking negative, negative things will happen. If we believe good things are going to happen they usually do. I don’t believe in hocus pocus, that simply saying “I am going to have a BMW” means a BMW will show up. Our actions have to line up with what we are believing for and eventually it will materialize.

    Hi Mickey, I appreciate your comment….very interesting that even the Bible supports laws of attraction. I didn’t know that. And you’ve added your own worthy insights on what we talk about and taking action on what we believe. Thank you!
