Have you ever heard the phrase mind over matter? If you have, you may or may not know what it is or how to use it, and if you haven’t heard it before, you have now! These three little words, “mind over matter” might be the most important words you will ever hear, and if you use them they will definitely be some of the most powerful. I say this because these words can change your life. But it won’t be the words of course, it will be you. It will be your own positive thinking.
So, you might be wondering what this phrase means, or you might know what it means but not how it relates to your life. On the other hand you might be one of those gifted people who already understand the concept of “mind over matter” and apply it in their life, if so you are already ahead of the game, but even then you can read on, because you may just glean some important new angles from this article. You see, you can never learn too much about this amazing concept. You can never go too far in applying it. The fact is that mind over matter is one of life’s miracles that every single person can avail, but very few ever do. And that is truly a shame.
I am one of those people who have always had a natural feeling for the concept of mind over matter. I have always known and believed this concept and applied it in my life. This concept and the optimistic drive that I have and use every day has made me who and what I am today, and is still changing me on a daily basis, hopefully into a progressively much better person. You might say that I believe in miracles, and I also believe that whatever I dream about can come true if I want it to, and if God gives it to me. So, while I fervently believe that mind over matter is real, palpable, and at the disposal of every single human being, I also believe that God may or may not let me (and others) have whatever I (or they) want or am (are) working for depending on His absolute knowledge. Thus, the concept “mind over matter” comes attached to an aspect of trust in universal wisdom and power, but that doesn’t negate your power and the power of your will. You will find that your will is one of the most powerful tools you will ever have, and you can benefit yourself and others to a degree that you may have never dreamed of, so read on.
You see, you have the power to get what you want. You have the power to make your dreams come true. You have the power to be whatever you want to be. That power is mind over matter.
So, we need to define mind first. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary the word “mind” means:
1 : RECOLLECTION, MEMORY <keep that in mind> <time out of mind>
2 a : the element or complex of elements in an individual that feels, perceives, thinks, wills, and especially reasons b : the conscious mental events and capabilities in an organism c : the organized conscious and unconscious adaptive mental activity of an organism
3 : INTENTION, DESIRE.
Aha! Mind is our thinking, feelings, and everything else that is conscious. Good. And what about matter? According to the same dictionary it means:
1 a : a subject under consideration b : a subject of disagreement or litigation c plural : the events or circumstances of a particular situation d : the subject or substance of a discourse or writing e : something of an indicated kind or having to do with an indicated field or situation <this is a serious matter> <as a matter of policy> <matters of faith> f : something to be proved in law g obsolete : sensible or serious material as distinguished from nonsense or drollery h (1) obsolete : REASON, CAUSE (2) : a source especially of feeling or emotion i : PROBLEM, DIFFICULTY
2 a : the substance of which a physical object is composed b : material substance that occupies space, has mass, and is composed predominantly of atoms consisting of protons, neutrons, and electrons, that constitutes the observable universe, and that is interconvertible with energy c : a material substance of a particular kind or for a particular purpose <vegetable matter> d (1) : material (as feces or urine) discharged from the living body (2) : material discharged by suppuration : PUS
3 a : the indeterminate subject of reality; especially : the element in the universe that undergoes formation and alteration b : the formless substratum of all things which exists only potentially and upon which form acts to produce realities
Now, you might think that this is too much information about the word “matter”, but it isn’t, because the concept of “mind over matter” includes all this and more. It can be applied in every situation, for every person and at every time.
That’s all I’m going to tell you this time, but I now want to make a request. I want each and every one of you, my readers, to tell me what you think I mean by “mind over matter”, and if you already apply this concept in your life I want you to tell me how. If you don’t apply it I want you to tell me what you think it is and how you might be able to use it in your life. Your ideas and thoughts will be published next week.
