“THOUGHTMAIL™: Mastering the Inner Technology for Happiness

By Cary Bayer

You’ve mastered voicemail and email, now it’s time to master Thoughtmail. Thoughtmail, you ask?  Thoughtmail embraces five inner communication techniques to transform your mind, purify your heart, awaken your Spirit, and create the life you’d love to live. It incorporates these powerful practices:
  • Affirmation (Positive communication with your own mind) 
  • Visualization (Picturing a goal with a mental JPEG) 
  • Meditation (Your mind connecting to your higher Self)
  • Prayer (Your heart speaking with God) 
  • Telepathy (Your mind transmitting to another mind)

Affirmation

Typically, a person affirms a positive message in a repetitive manner in one of five different ways: through thinking, writing, speaking, reading, or listening. To master this inner technology, it’s essential to release a negative thought that’s blocking the affirmation from becoming your reality. Write that thought as step “B. “ Then transform that limited thought through the larger awareness of your higher Self in step “C.” These three steps, comprising one repetition, might look like this:
A) “I can make money doing what I love.”
B) “What you love doing is a hobby people won’t pay you for.” 
C) “People purchase my products and services when I share them enthusiastically.”

Visualization

We say that “Seeing is believing;” the truth is that believing is seeing. In other words, when you believe the images you see in your mind’s eye, the more quickly you’ll manifest them in the physical world, so others see them, too. We also say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but when it’s the picture you’ve visualized within yourself, that picture could easily be worth a thousand dollars--or a million.

Meditation

Meditation is that mental process by which the conscious mind becomes consciousness.  Normally, your mind is conscious of something—the ocean I’m looking at as I write in my office; your thoughts about dinner tonight; your love for your mate, child, or grandchild. There’s you and the object of your consciousness. When you meditate effortlessly, you let the power that beats your heart, breathes for you, and takes you from waking to sleeping to dreaming and back to waking again—take you from waking to your higher Self. This transforms you from a human doing or a human thinking to a human Being. 

Using effort to get to this Transcendent is like using effort to get to sleep; you know how futile that is. That’s because going from one state of consciousness to another always takes place without our effort—the higher Power naturally takes care of this. . In the case of sleep that means turning off the light, laying down in bed and putting your head on the pillow. And then we let a natural process happen. In the case of meditation, that means closing your eyes, sitting comfortably in a chair, and letting the mantra that’s best suited to your nervous system, do the rest.

Prayer

Prayer is a mental or emotional technique in which a human being asks the higher Power for something he or she lacks. When you understand the Law of Attraction, which states that what you focus on expands, your prayer that focuses on what you lack strengthens the lack. 
Affirmative Prayer thanks the higher Power for giving you what it is you might ordinarily pray for before it manifests. The difference between these two ways of praying can be huge.

Telepathy

As a life coach I often teach clients about how to protect their boundaries and respect those of others.  So I don’t recommend invading the thoughts of others. We’ve all had the experience of thinking of a friend and then hearing the phone ring seconds later only to discover that person is calling.  
If you’d like to progress in telepathy, play with it in a light and relaxed spirit, not squeezing your closed eyes tightly to concentrate. In fact, don’t concentrate at all. Just allow the idea that you have access to far more information than you ever thought possible, and see if you can “hear” the thought of the person you’re doing this experiment with. As you become more comfortable mastering these four other Thoughtmail skills, this last one will seem far less daunting.
Enjoy!
