To Sing a Deeper Song Consider:
Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life
Explorations of the Unseen World
Our thoughts create our reality. When you change your thinking, you change your life.
The second that we change our thinking is the exact second our life changes – for better or worse, depending on what we just thought. There is great power in knowing that.
Our thoughts create our reality. We create our life by our thoughts and our expectations. When we learn to examine what we are thinking, what we are expecting, we have more power over what act ally manifests.
If you are in a situation you do not like, examine the thinking and the expectations that got you there.
If you love where you are, do the same – examine the thinking and expectations that got you there so you can repeat them.
Here’s the primary key to changing your life: Your life is determined by what you think you deserve and what you think is possible. Let’s talk about that…

Thank you for being a part of this journey.
This is an important episode. It’s about how to Change Your Thinking to Change Your Life:
Within a few weeks of having moved from New York City to Santa Rosa, California I was invited to attend the Center for Spiritual Living. I had not been to church in a very long time but I am very spiritual and metaphysical. As I sat there on that first Sunday and listened to the sermon, I kept thinking, “I believe that. Oh, I believe that too” and when we all joined hands at the end and sang “We are one” I knew I had indeed found my spiritual home. Five years later I was a practitioner, a member of the clergy, a licensed spiritual counselor.
But someplace early in that journey, I was sitting on the front row when Reverend Edward said. “Your life is determined by what you believe you deserve and what you believe is possible.”
I stoped cold. Is it really that easy? Just change what I expect?
I’ve been working with that idea ever since…
There are thee thing to consider here.
– Your thoughts create your reality.
– You get what you believe your deserve and
– You get what you believe is possible
Change your thinking, change your life
As I began to work with this idea that our thoughts create our realty, I was taught to pay close attention to my words – the affirmations I was giving myself. “I can’t do that – That’s too hard.” And I was also taught to always say positive things because our words become what we affirm to be so.
An affirmation is said in the present tense as if it were so. I am whole, perfect, and complete.
Your thoughts create your reality. Begin to monitor your thoughts.
Your thoughts create your life experience. Your thoughts create how your life unfolds. That’s a very big responsibility – to know that we create our lie eserine with our thoughts.
If you can imagine it you can make it happen. Now it may look a little different than you thought. For instance, if I really, really, really wanted to become an astronaut I may end up as an astrophysicist or I may discover a new galaxy through a telescope. Or I move deeply into Astrology. Let your intention unfold and prepare to be surprised! Just remember your thoughts create your reality, your life experience
Your life is unfolding along the path created by your thoughts and expectations. Look for your individual path and see what is manifesting there that will guide you to the most aligned goal.
It’s vital that we monitor our words – notice what we are saying – what we are thinking – what we are expecting – the affirmations we are giving ourselves – both positive and negative.
As a spiritual practitioner, I was really seeped in monitoring my vocabulary to only say positive, affirmative things. One day in a group setting I was asked how I liked a particular rug. I didn’t. It was obviously new and pleased the owner greatly. And I had to really work hard to find something positive to say. I don’t remember what I finally commented on – the color perhaps or “it suits the room” but there was a distinct pause while I changed my negative thoughts to positive ones. Work with that idea – monitor your thoughts and make sure your words are positive and affirmative.
In today’s rapidly changing world I a consciously working to focus on what I am FOR, how I want it to be, what values I want to incorporate into my life, how I want to express myself in this new world that is evolving. You don’t have to be against anything, just work to create the change you would like to see manifest. And that begins with changing yourself.
Our thoughts create our reality. Now it so happens that our thoughts about what we deserve are sometimes very sneaky. We need to learn to identify them and monitor them. What do you believe you deserve?
Remember, our thoughts create our reality. That gives us great power. Change your thinking, change your life.
Your life is determined by what you believe you deserve.
This is such an important concept to understand. It is very subtle and we really have to work at monitoring our thought to keep ourselves from letting any negative thoughts in.
Perhaps you begin by making a list of all the positive things you see about yourself. Then add the positive things others say about you. Write them down so you see them. Perhaps you even have two columns in case a negative thought comes in – write it down so you can work to change it. One quality might belong in both the positive and negative columns. For instance, my enthusiasm gets a lot done and often motivates others, but and it can make me a bit pushy at times.
What do you believe you deserve? Do you deserve to be loved? Do you deserve to be safe? Do you deserve to love your work? Do you deserve supportive friends? Do you deserve to be healthy?
When you start going in the direction of “Do I deserve to get rich” – you might want to think about what “rich” means to you – safety, travel, freedom to follow your passion – don’t make it about being a consumer of items, what qualities do you want in your life – love, companionship, self-expression, satisfying work. Those will make you feel very wealthy. What exactly do you think you deserve?
Change your thinking, change your life .
Here’s a big one. You get what you believe is possible. This can be very subtle. It can pull you down without you evening noticing. Look closely at what you believe is possible.
I’m 87 and there’s no going back in physical age, but my curiosity is greater than ever, my creativity is on fire, and I am doing exactly what I want to do and loving it. That’s partly because I have followed my heart, my calling with a great deal of energy, commitment, and enthusiasm!
So let’s talk about our belief in what is possible. Sometimes it’s a matter of reframing the belief. Let’s say I want to become a famous author. Why? To change people’s lives. I do that all the time with my posts and podcasts.
Do I want to be an influencer? Only to those who need to hear what I offer and I am doing that. You may already be doing what you want. Look at the core reason you want something to be possible. What if your thoughts are “I don’t think I’ll ever find a mate.” What if you change that to “I choose to accept and experience love in my life” and the next thing you know you have a rescued cat cuddled up next to you in gratitude and affection and unconditional love. Look beyond how you are phrasing what you want to attract into your life and find the emotional or spiritual gifts you are seeking.
Something there are specific steps you need to take in order to make something possible.
I have some work to do on my physical body to make it stronger. I’m sure running a marathon is not on my possibility list because it never was, but I have some choices I can make about movement and exercise that can modify and change the strength of my body. So my switch has to be to change my thinking about what is possible (like standing up straighter or walking longer distances) and I simply start working on the steps I can take to move me from where I am to where my strength and stamina are better. Take actual physical plane steps towards what you want to manifest. Be persistent. Be focused. And watch for your wins.
Our lifetime of beliefs and choices have brought us to where we are today. But this may be the moment in which you begin to make active, conscious, mindful choices to change our life. Change your thinking, change or life
So the premise here is that your thoughts create your reality. That means you have great power to change your life simply by changing your thoughts.
You get what you believe you deserve so you have great power to change your life by changing your expectations of what you deserve.
You get what you believe is possible so spend some time looking at those subtle or not so subtle expectations you have about what is possible.
Change your thinking, change your life. Every thought counts.
We have a great deal of control over our lives – through our beliefs, our choices, our thoughts, our actions. We are not at the effect of anything – except ourselves – and our beliefs and expectations. So get busy. Whether it’s to expand your spiritual practice, take more shamanic journeys, or add more affirmations, consciously monitor your own thoughts to make sure they are positive and supportive to your life. You have a choice. You get what you believe you deserve and what you think is possible – Change your thinking, change your life

I am whole, perfect, and complete – all is well in my world. And so it is.
