How many thoughts per day does the average person have?
50,000-70,000 which approximately around 60,000 per day. When we have between 50,000-70,000 thoughts per day, this means between 35 and 48 thoughts per minute per person. The steady flow of thinking is a thick filter between our thoughts and feelings, our head and heart.
Amazingly, you had the same approximately 60,000 thoughts yesterday and the same one we had the day before. These thoughts become a steady flow of thinking, which turn out to be a thick filter between our thoughts and feelings, between out head and heart. They repeatedly influence your ways of being, understanding, and interpreting/translating the reality. They shade your ways to response to certain stimuli.
These thoughts flow based on a set of core beliefs that have been acquired over the course of your life. Incredibly those thoughts flow from particular beliefs that automatically give good reason for “who you are, who are others, the surroundings, where is your place in the relationship and in the world.”
“I can’t do anything right” “I’m inferior to others. I’m not as intelligent or capable as they are” “The world is dangerous. I’m not safe” “Love hurts, protect yourself” “When problem arise, don’t look, don’t feel, run away” “Winning is what counts” “People won’t see me if I’m wearing this brand of clothes/bag” “I have no power” “Nobody love me. I’m worthless. Nobody wants me” “Nobody can be trusted. You can’t trust anyone”
Probably you can expect what kind of thoughts will flow from one of the beliefs above. Think about this, if you have a belief that “the world is dangerous and you are not safe” then what kind of thoughts will flow from that belief? What kind of feelings will you have when you meet with people? How is your body reactions when someone comes to you?
Again you have approximately 60,000 thoughts every day. So you probably need to learn your own thoughts’ pattern which then lead you to understand more where those thoughts came from.
That is the reason, you need a well trained, a professional, a therapist that is able to assist you to identify your core beliefs system. In the therapy process, you and your therapist will examine your thoughts. You learn to sorting out, to categorizing, and to developing more alternative thoughts. The therapeutic activities alter specific targeted beliefs system. In the process you will grow and be transformed. You will be better and healthier as who you want to be. You go to the direction of your inner calling.
