What Does a Thought Weigh?
I have often struggled with ideas that can communicate the power of a single thought. Our brains have been labeled as the 3-pound universe and in many ways this is totally appropriate. But if our brains only weigh three pounds and we have literally millions and millions of thoughts stored somewhere, what does a thought weigh? That seems like a kind of non-sense enquiry-but wait a minute.
It has been estimated that we think some 60,000 thought every day. In addition to our thoughts, we handle tens of thousands of bits of information as a result only of external stimuli. Others have approximated the amount of negative information each of us process to be representative of at least 90% of the stimuli we process. Indeed, I would add that for many, the vast majority of their inner thoughts are also negative.
Now if you think of our 3-pound universe that way, then how much does all of the negativity weigh? Perhaps the true weight loss program we should all endeavor to maintain is the one that's aimed at losing those negative thought patterns. All of those no-don't, you can't, you'll never succeed at that, etc. and so forth. In other words, every self-limiting, self-imposed notion that proscribes what we will try and how well we will do at it. This is the kind of weight loss that most of us need.
In "Choices and Illusions: How Did I Get Here and How Do I Get Where I Want To Be?" the role the subconscious plays in limiting one's success is laid out step by step. The evidence is in: the subconscious instructs the conscious what to do, what to say, when to act and more, and it does so as much as 60 seconds before the conscious mind responds. The mind is very much like a large container that you can fill with anything you want, but then that input becomes its program. Years ago I likened this to the old computer programmers GIGO meaning Garbage In Garbage Out.
Think of all the programming that rests somewhere deep in your subconscious. Are you aware that there are literally billions of dollars spent on ongoing research designed to know your every response and program your every thought. I am not exaggerating. In my new book, Mind Programming, which has recently arrived at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, I share the literal chapter and verse of the hidden agenda martialed sometimes by advertiser, sometimes by governmental agencies, sometimes by neuro-marketing entrepreneurs and many more. When you discover just how much of your every thought has been given you-you may share my concern about the liberties these people take and legally have for them to take.
In the new book I also take great care to explain how you can eliminate this nonsense and how you can reprogram your own subconscious mind. It's your mind-but only if you choose what goes in it.
Thanks for the read.
P.S. Now you know why I still play my own InnerTalk programs everyday. To me, InnerTalk is the perfect antidote for this negative input which seems almost impossible to totally avoid.
P.P.S. Here is a link to my New York Times bestseller, Choices and Illusions.

Thank You for Your Comments
Not long ago the feature article in our newsletter was all about one man who chose to buy lunch for our soldiers returning home on a commercial flight and how that act inspired many. This comment is in regards to that newsletter feature:

Inspiration was shared by way of the enclosed Christmas card that we created
for our friends and loved ones this year. It also made it to one of the
rehabilitation centers for service people, as well as to Kuwait where my
daughter's husband is working for the military.
Be sure to look at the back of the card. That's our vision. My husband works
for a military call center here in Dallas and has the opportunity of
speaking with service people from all over the world. Sometimes it's very
touching. So that subject is in our thoughts and we are seeing the best for

Radio Show: Mind Matters with Eldon Taylor
Listen in via the Internet from anywhere in the world, call in toll free and/or join the conversation via the chat room (http://www.ctrchat.com). If you live in Seattle, tune into KRWM 106.9 FMHD. Mail your questions and we'll answer them on the air. This week Eldon discusses Choices and Illusions preparing for the introduction of the second book in his series about mind control, Mind Programming. In Choices and Illusions we discover how many of our choices have already been made for us and how unaware we are of it. Further, our thinking itself has been imprisoned in the sense that we all together too often fail to see alternatives to old self-defeating patterns. If you wish to understand why "same old-same old" may describe part of your life then you do not want to miss this show.
In two weeks join Eldon and his friends to discuss his new book, Mind Programming, which is officially due for release on April 15th. Here is what readers are saying about Mind Programming:
Even though I consider myself to be quite aware of what is going on in the world, this book boldly shatters illusions about how extensive the mind control in our society has become. Eldon Taylor gives specific and documented examples of the deliberate and aggressive ploys to control our behavior and our minds. Are you really free? Only if you can take back control your mind. Thank heavens, Dr. Taylor shows us how in one of the most important books I have ever read. ~Terri Marie, award winning author.

Kiss Your Monsters Goodbye
Below is a special, personal message from Cindy Ashton. Her story, her new book and the gifts offered by her partners are quite impressive.
"Thank you for taking the time to let me share my story with you...
I was born with a 20% chance of living. By the age of 14, I had undergone three life threatening heart surgeries, was left in chronic pain and with a permanently damaged lung. Since early childhood, it was my dream to sing, dance and act around the world, but my body stopped me from living my dreams... until recently. I have recovered far beyond what any doctor believed was possible, going on to train in a professional dance company six hours a day and sing opera, even with my damaged lung.
I share this story with you because I want you to know that you too can overcome your obstacles, which I like to call "monsters." Even though my circumstances may seem unique, this story is also your story. We all have dreams and desires, things we want to conquer and accomplish. Through the valleys and the mountains on this journey of life, we must face our monsters. These monsters are our fears, our negative beliefs and the obstacles that stand in our way. And their incessant voices create doubt within ourselves, cause us to question our dreams and leave us to wonder if we truly can be everything we once believed we could be.
My own life experience has taught me that you can kiss any monster and achieve the success you deserve! I am humbled by my own recovery and now I am determined to empower you to feel so safe and validated in yourself that you also have the power to overcome any obstacle.
So my dear Courageous Monster-Kissing Warriors, today is the magnificent day that you can take a giant leap towards breaking through any barrier. I know you don't want to miss out. My team and I have gathered together to offer you a package of over 100 life transforming gifts worth $10 000 absolutely free, to help me celebrate the launch of my new book: Kiss Your Monsters Goodbye: Overcome Your Obstacles & Achieve the Success You Deserve! Take a quick peek at all the free bonus gifts here: www.kissyourmonstersgoodbye.com "
Organic Foods at Risk Including Growing Your Own Garden
I really don't like getting political in our newsletters, but this one deserves to be passed on.
If you care about organic food or growing your own food in any capacity, even a garden! The U. S. House and Senate are about to vote (in a week!) on a law that will outlaw organic farming!! Main backer is Monsanto chemical and engineering. This bill will require organic farms to use specific fertilizers and POISONOUS insect sprays dictated by the newly formed agency to "make sure there is no danger to the public food supply." This will include back yard gardens that grow food only for family use. If this passes. no more heirloom clean seeds but only genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected diseases in humans! There is an enormous rush to get this into law within the next week before the people realize what's happening. The insane bill is called "Food Safety and Modernization Act (Bill HR 875) Call or email your Congressman today and tell them (politely) you'd like to vote NO on this bill.
If you care at all about our rights to eat foods without cancer causing chemicals in them call right now!! And PASS THIS ON to your ENTIRE email list!!
Here's a bit about Monsanto: http://fooddemocracy.wordpress.com/2007/08/24/monsanto-the-bad-seed/
Here's a video on the subject but I warn you, it may go to far with the expression of opinions:
