Many individuals, including addicts and alcoholics, do not understand the importance and power of what they think and say, especially when they are referring to themselves. Many people truly do not believe that their thoughts and words are important or matter. They do not see that there is any connection between their thinking and their outer experiences.
"Until someone can show you the connection between the outer experiences and the inner thoughts, you remain a victim in life." Louise Hay
When you begin the path of transformation you will slowly come to understand the importance and power of your thinking and thought patterns. You will eventually come to understand that the emotional pain that you have been experiencing all these years was created by you, by your thoughts and way of being. You will also come to know that you can be, have and do differently.
