Every so often you see something that just takes your breath away. And that’s how I remember Liz Hayes introducing her segment on Sixty Minutes four years ago.

Because she introduced us to Braingate. A research and development programme that uses the power of people’s thoughts to give movement to people trapped in bodies that no longer work in certain ways. People experiencing paraplegia for instance.

And it’s just so brilliant. A small electrode implanted in the brain picks up their thoughts and translates these electrical signals into instructions. Much like what happens in our own bodies. But through their thoughts, people can operate robotic arms or send emails or even speak using nothing but the power and intention in their thoughts.  It’s quite something to witness people using only the power of thought to drive a wheelchair. Kind of makes you realise at a whole new level just how powerful your thoughts are, doesn’t it. So powerful that there’s a whole discussion going on about being able to use this technology to turn off lights or control your tv remote for instance just by thinking about it.

Awesome stuff.

Because they are so powerful. These tiny little things we take for granted.  And I often wonder how much time and how many opportunities we waste thinking crappy thoughts? And what we could be achieving instead.  Did you know you could strengthen a muscle just by thinking about it?

So watch your thoughts. Because the power in these little electrical impulses creates both your reality and your future.

Are your thoughts are aligned with the life you desire?
