The ultimate purpose of Mind Your Reality is for you to know yourself—your True Self. When you remember who you truly are, an untold greatness within you will come to be reflected in both your inner and outer worlds. By remembering your True Self—the I AM—you can begin to consciously direct your mental world and in turn your physical world through what you imagine and the actions that follow. Everything becomes possible to the person who knows they are both the sculptor and the marble that the sculptor shapes into what he imagines—that they are both the dreamer and the dream itself. Your True Self is not someone outside of you that you must discover—it is YOU, always has been and always will be. To discover who you truly are, therefore, is to remember who you have always been.
Your mind is more powerful than perhaps you have ever dared to imagine. Mind power is not something you must acquire; you already possess it in its full potential. You need only become aware of it and learn to apply it. Minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day as you apply what you learn, as you reap the rewards, as you see miracles unfold, the time will come when you will just know. No 'ifs', no 'buts', no 'what ifs'—you will just know that through the power of your mind, it is you that shapes your circumstances by way of what you think, believe, feel, assume and imagine. It's simple but do not be misled into thinking it's easy to unlearn what you have been taught to believe to date. Learning to effectively and intelligently apply your mind's power is the greatest task you will ever undertake and for the same reason, the rewards you reap will more than compensate you for the greatest of your efforts.
The premise of Mind Your Reality is that the underlying substance of the Universe is energy that is very much alive with Consciousness or Mind. In fact, behind everything seen and unseen, you find consciousness and more specifically a single Consciousness that is absolute in nature. This single Consciousness goes by the name Universal Mind or Divine Mind, and is the mind of The One or God. Being absolute, it is present everywhere at the same time in Its entirety. This means that your mind is Universal Mind in Its entirety, not just part of it. And since consciousness is behind reality, then your consciousness is behind your reality. More specifically, your experience of reality is a projection of your consciousness, in the same way that your dreams are wholly a projection of your consciousness.
This then means that you can intentionally create your circumstances by intelligently directing your mind's power. To maximise your experience of this game that we call Life, you must learn to use the mind's tool, called thought, while also playing by the Rules of the Game. The Rules are the Universal Laws that govern everything and everyone along, otherwise, unconscious lines. Manifesting or conscious creation is not about visualizing and affirming what you desire all day while doing nothing in the 3D world to affect that change. Rather, it is about using your mind to change your self-concept, or else what you assume about yourself, about others and about life, so that the actions you take both mentally and physically, and the conditions that follow, change to match those assumptions.
If you are not consciously directing your life, you have little advantage over a tree. A tree cannot consciously choose whether today it will grow and tomorrow it will not. Its life is wholly governed by the unconscious operations of the Universal Laws. In contrast, you can become self-aware of your consciousness and hence choose the direction of your mind's activities by employing a mindset founded on self-discipline, gratitude, self-trust and ultimately love.
By knowing your true nature and the Universal Laws, you get to claim your mind's power and so transform your life in any direction you choose, no matter how far away from your ideal you may deem yourself right now, or how many times you have tried in the past. You have the greatest freedom of all—the freedom of choice. Every day you get to choose your mindset. Every day you get to choose what to think, feel, believe and assume is possible for you. Every day you get to choose what actions to take, even it is just one step forward in favour of living a more fulfilling life. Every day you get to choose, you get to choose, you get to choose... And as you do so wisely, your experience of reality will begin to resemble that which it was always intended to be—the highest expression of a life well-lived.
It is through awareness, observation, self-discipline and the application of knowledge that you find freedom—not by chasing an elusive promise of happiness down a worn-out path. Joy is not a destination. It is an inner state of being. And it's your natural state.
THE POWER OF THE MIND: These articles are on the subject of mind power and consciousness, both at a personal and universal level. Here you'll learn about the power of your mind at the varying degrees of consciousness, as well as Universal Mind, The Absolute, and your True Self—in short, all things related to mind power. Understanding the inherent nature of your mind's power is a first step towards gaining mastery over your inner world and, in turn, learning how to purposefully manifest your desires. All is Mind. You do not have a mind, you are mind.
THE NATURE OF REALITY: These articles are on the underlying nature of reality and the Universal Laws that govern everything and everyone, both visible and invisible, along unconscious lines. You will learn just what reality is and your place in it, the illusion of our 3D experience and the Laws and Principles that keep it in place. This knowledge is fundamental to the Game of Life, and so also to manifesting your desires. Understanding the illusory nature of reality and the rules of the Game are truly the ultimate game-changer.
SELF-CONCEPT FOUNDATION: These articles are about your self-concept and how to change it. Your concept of self is what you fundamentally believe and assume to be true not only about yourself, but about life itself and others. It is the basis from which you think, feel, perceive, act and ultimately manifest. If you have tried manifesting with little or impermanent success, you'll find that an unaligned self-concept is the most probable cause. To improve your life, you must change yourself not others or outside things, and so it is that changing your self-concept is the key.
HOW TO MANIFEST YOUR DESIRES: These articles are about manifestation and the techniques you can apply to manifest something you want through your mind's power and imagination. Manifesting is about assuming the feeling that you already are or possess what you desire to be or have, while also leaving the old life and limiting beliefs behind. Bear in mind that your self-concept is directly related to your manifesting success. Study and apply the techniques but remember they are tools not magic—your mind is where the power lies.
MINDSET IN PRACTICE: Your mindset is an often overlooked yet fundamental aspect of manifesting. You may know everything there is to know about manifesting, reality and your mind, but if you do not have the optimal mindset in practice, it is of little use to you. The ability to concentrate, manage your time, keep a disposition of optimism and gratitude and have the self-discipline to persist, are key to your success in any endeavour, be it manifesting or otherwise. Here you'll learn how to develop a mindset that plants you firmly on the road of growth and success.
NEW THOUGHT AUTHORS: The late 19th and early-to-middle 20th centuries saw the emergence of the New Thought movement. Here you'll find excerpts from the masterpieces that were written at the time on mind power, manifesting and much more. These articles feature those authors that have allowed us to stand on their mental shoulders to see the world from a higher vantage point. William Walker Atkinson, Charles F. Haanel, James Allen, Neville Goddard, Thomas Troward and Henry Thomas Hamblin are some of the mental giants to whom I am indebted.
ABOUT THE SITE: The Mind Your Reality website was launched in July 2008 and founded for the love of mind power, the nature of reality, manifesting and our innate longing to develop an unshakeable self-concept and mindset. All the articles were updated in 2020 as was the design of the site, while the structure of the site was updated in 2024. I encourage you to visit the site regularly and to sign up to the newsletter to be informed of new articles, courses, podcasts, and other developments. You can also follow me, Tania Kotsos, on Mind Your Reality's Facebook, X-Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Spotify accounts. You will notice that I have decided to keep the website completely ad-free for your reading and learning pleasure. I truly trust that you will enjoy the experience!
