We often hear about the power of thoughts and affirmations. They seem to promise a gateway into a reality where our desires can manifest effortlessly. But how do thoughts transition into affirmations? And do they really hold the magic to change our reality? Bentinho sheds light on the intriguing relationship between thoughts and affirmations.

Thoughts are constant companions; they share our daily reality, fleeting through our minds incessantly. However, affirmations represent a more deliberate application of thoughts. They are chosen thoughts, wielded with a specific intention, often towards personal development or achieving particular goals.

Now, imagine standing in front of a mirror, uttering affirmations of slimness while your reflection tells a different story. According to Bentinho, if the affirmation doesn’t resonate with your present belief or feeling, it’s like a bird with clipped wings – grounded. It’s essential that the thought or affirmation feels good and resonates with your current state of being to be effective. When you affirm “I am slim,” you should feel the slimness, irrespective of your current physical appearance. If not, it’s likely to spiral into a loop of negative energy, amplifying the very issue you aim to resolve.

Bentinho suggests that the effectiveness of affirmations lies in their alignment with our emotions and beliefs. If an affirmation about slimness makes you miserable, you are not likely to attract slimness into your reality. The underlying frequency of your thoughts, as Bentinho points out, shapes the reality you experience.

But here’s a plot twist. Bentinho proposes that it’s not necessary for the content of your thoughts or affirmations to directly relate to your desires. If a whimsical thought about eating worms while standing on one hand tickles your fancy and makes you feel good, it’s more potent than a forced affirmation about slimness.

This emphasis on ‘feeling good’ takes the whole concept of affirmations to a refreshing tangent. It’s not about reciting cliched phrases or visualizing specific outcomes but mastering the frequency of your thoughts to align with who you truly wish to be. It’s about nurturing thoughts that echo your essence and make you feel good.

In essence, it’s not about ‘what’ you want to manifest, but ‘who’ you want to be. When your thoughts resonate with your true self, the universe orchestrates to mirror this resonance in your reality.

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” – Philippians 4:8 NKJV
