Yesterday I shared Bruce Lipton’s video on building a thought account. I got such a great experience from it, I’m re-publishing it again today. There is a very powerful message in this video that is moving me to a new level of awareness.
The information I’m sharing below really made me face the reality of the type of energy I personally expend just doing normal things in a normal day. Check out this website on their definition of energy that made sense to me (a bit different from how Lipton explains it in the video) – click here.
Think about this. A British thermal unit (Btu) is one of the basic measuring blocks of energy. One Btu is equal to one blue-tip kitchen match (remember those, I don’t see them much these days, hmmmm).
Scientist measure my personal energy in joules. One joule is the amount of energy needed to lift something weighing one pound to a height of nine inches. Okay, I do this by lifting a small bag of groceries.
So, if 1,000 joules equal one Btu and it takes about 2,000 Btus to make a pot of coffee (their calculation), then I’ve just expended about 2 million joules just to make my pot of coffee – a simple, subconscious activity that most of us perform daily.
Here’s how they explain the measurement of joules of energy of simple things I do all the time:
A piece of buttered toast (oh, how I love my buttered toast) contains about 315 kilojoules (315,000 joules) of energy. With that energy we could:
- Jog for 6 minutes
- Bicycle for 10 minutes
- Walk briskly for 15 minutes
- Sleep for 1-1/2 hours
Since I bicycle, based on my biking calculation, I just deposited more than 315,000 joules into my potential energy account by thinking about things I am grateful for while I bike (more than 15 minutes).
Writing this blog and sharing all the positive personal transformation action I’m taking, I deposited two-fold, or 4 million joules, just based on my intention to share this information with you.
This thought account is moving so much positive energy through my body, I can’t help but feel successful in all the activity I perform during my waking hours (but it also works while I sleep). Knock, knock – hello, why would I want to spend any amount of time on negative thinking?
So, as Lipton says, over 25% of my total energy in my whole body is used to operate my brain and my brain uses energy at the rate of muscles of a marathon runner . . . whoa, look at the power I have created just by stopping my stinkin thinkin!
I’ve decided I want to conserve my precious energy and resonate pure grace and manifestation for a peaceful flow to my life. As they say in the Alka-Seltzer commercial, “Try it, you’ll like it!”
I send you my blessings and wishes for a prosperous and abundant life.
