100 Positive Thoughts To Transform Your Life And Reconfigure Your Brain

transform

“All we are is the result of what we thought. The spirit is everything. What we think we become.” – Muhammad Ali

Generally, we greatly underestimate the power of positive thoughts and how it can transform our lives.

Yet they have a physical power that directly or indirectly influences and transform our lives. Here and there, we can speak of presence, magnetism, aura, which are only the invisible envelope created by thoughts.

This power of thought is all the greater when it is steeped in faith and emotion. These increase the vibration, as one would increase the sound of a radio to better hear it.

Positive thoughts filled with faith will act favorably, just as negative ones will create the bed of misery.

We are thinking machines

Each person emits an average of 60,000 thoughts a day! Surprisingly, 95% of these are the same thoughts repeated each day. On average, 80% of these repetitive thoughts are negative.

Unfortunately, our brains are configured to pay more attention to negative than positive experiences. This peculiarity allowed the human being to survive. In the past, it was essential to remember negative experiences such as the bite of a snake, the toxicity of a plant…

Our world is much less dangerous today but our thoughts are still mainly negative.

Using MRI imaging, researchers have shown that negative thoughts stimulate areas of the brain that promote depression and anxiety. They have also proven that positive thoughts trigger a cascade of positive hormones throughout the body that results in a sense of calm and peace.

What wisdom of the ancients had taught us, modern science confirms today. The brain is “reconfigurable” by various methods including positive thinking.

Anxiety, medicines and positive thoughts

Stress and anxiety is our big problem nowadays and doctors are searching for new ways to get rid of it. A very popular medicine in the United States that is Xanax is being used for this purpose but it is not a permanent solution. Here is a question how long does Xanax stay in your system to make you relax? Just a few hours and that is why we must change our thoughts to cure us with positive thoughts.

Five Words to Define Travel

 

I love traveling, and I love languages, so imagine my excitement when I came across a treasure trove of the trip words that describe how we feel before, during, and after we travel.

These five words for travel will define your feeling for traveling.

travel

Just like a photo can’t adequately catch what it feels like to stand on the edge of a fjord, neither can ‘wanderlust’ fully reveal how we feel when we desire our next venture. These travel words are literary treasures which have been selected from languages around the world. From Japanese to Swedish, Latin to Greek, travel brochures of the future will be peppered with travel words like of resfeber, Solivagant, and Sehnsucht.

Without further ado, here are five words for travel to add to your vocabulary.

 

  1. Resfeber (n.)

Pronounced: RACE-fay-ber

Origin: Swedish

Meaning: This travel word belongs to the restless race of the traveler’s spirit before the adventure starts when anxiety and joy are tangled together.

We’ve all felt this, the jump in your heart moment when you officially purchase your plane tickets. When the excitement and fear flood to your soul all at once, creating a healthy mixture of passions that can leave you feeling anxious or physically ill.

 

  1. Solivagant (adj.)

Pronunciation: sO-li-‘vA-gant

Origin: Latin

Meaning: Wandering alone.

Not all those who roam are lost, but all those who walk alone are solivagant. From the Latin word solivagus, meaning lonely or solitary, solivagant describes anyone who enjoys meandering around new countries, apart, to take it all in.

 

  1. Sehnsucht (n.)

Pronunciation: zeɪnˌzʊxt

Origin: German

Meaning: A nostalgic longing and desire in the soul for voyages past and eternity.

One author explained it as the “inconsolable longing in the personal heart for we know not what." Another related it to “a longing for a far-off country, but not one which we could identify."

When you’re not traveling this can be a powerful feeling, or when you think about the journey you’ve done, and you crave you could relive it all over again.

 

  1. Dérive (n)

Pronunciation: de.ʁiv

Origin: French

Meaning: An impulsive and unplanned journey where the traveler leaves their life behind, allows themselves to be guided by the landscape and architecture.

Elucidated as “drift," dérive is the notion that even if you drift, you will end up on the best path. This could explain life in general, but it also reveals small journeys. When you’re wandering through a new city, and you just happen to walk on a path that takes you to great discoveries.

 

  1. Schwellenangst (n.)

Pronunciation: ‘shwel-en-ahngst

Origin: German

Meaning: Fear of crossing a threshold to embark on something new.

From schwelle (“threshold") and angst (“anxiety"), this word explains that feeling you get before deciding to set out on a new journey. Argh! Did I make the right decision?

Up to you!

15 Positive Words Untranslatable in English to Add to Your Vocabulary

15 Positive Words Untranslatable in English

Tim Lomas, Ph.D., a positive psychology lecturer at the University of East London, has gone see a conference at the annual International Positive Psychology Association symposium in Orlando in 2015. He came back inspired. The speaker, Finnish researcher Emilia Lahti, talked about the concept of sisu which means someone who has “extraordinary determination in the face of adversity."

“She was describing it as this psychological skill or quality that was very integral to Finnish culture and their identity." She presented how, despite being a Finnish word, it was an ability of all people, regardless of their native tongue that anyone could possess or cultivate.

He returned to England with an idea: To create a database of meaningful, positive words for feelings, character traits and relationships, expressed with words untranslatable in English. He wrote a paper on the topic published in The Journal of Positive Psychology that contained just over 200 words. The paper drew attention in the positive psychology and linguistics communities, and people began sharing their ideas for words to include in the database with Lomas. In 2016 The Positive Lexicography Project was born.

The next list presents 15 positive words that can not be translated in English:

 

  1. ‘Bilita mpash’ – it comes from Bantu , a language from Central and South Africa and it means a beautiful , blissful dream ( the opposite of a nightmare) .

  1. ‘Trouvaille’ – it comes from French and it is a correspondent for a lucky find , something good or valuable that you discovered by chance. Most of the times it is associated with clover because it is the symbol of luck.

  1. ‘Agape’ – it is a Greek word that is the feeling of selfless, unconditional and devotional love for someone it is something like love but in a different way of thinking.

  1. ‘Hachnasat orchim’ – it comes from Hebrew/Yiddish and makes you a person that brings guests and offer hospitality and respect to strangers. This is a popular way to live in those countrys.

  1. ‘Kæk’ – it is a Danish word and it suggests that someone is bold, cocky (not in a pejorative sense) with a gung-ho spirit.

  1. ‘Samar’ – it is an Arabic word that is used when you sit together in conversation with people at sunset or in the evening.

  1. ‘Suaimhneas croi’ – it comes from Gaelic and it means that you are feeling happiness or contentment for finishing a task. It is a sign of perseverance!

  1. ‘Nakama’ – it is a Japanese word for someone that is your best friend, someone you feel deep, platonic love for.

  1. ‘Yuán béi’ – it comes from traditional China and it is a sense of complete and perfect accomplishment.

  1. ‘Apramāda’ – it is an old Sanskrit word and it means moral watchfulness or awareness of the ethical implication of one’s actions.

  1. ‘Singurista’ – it is a Philippines word from a dialect called Tagalog , and it’s used for someone who would not initiate an action unless certain of obtaining the desire result.

  1. ‘Cafuné’ – it is a Brazilian word meaning the act of tenderly running one’s fingers through someone’s hair.

  1. ‘Wabi-Sabi’ – it is a Japanes word for a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay.

  1. ‘Hyggeling’ – it is a Danish word , Its “literal" translation into English gives connotations of a warm, friendly, cozy demeanor, but it’s unlikely that these words truly capture the essence of a hyggelig; it’s something that must be experienced to be known. I think of good friends, cold beer, and a warm fire.

  1. ‘Sewa’ – is short for the word Kar Seva, which is a Sanskrit word meaning hands or work and service, to pay homage through the act of love. Seva is the labour done with love and performed in the service of others without expectations.

The top 25 positive words in English

The top 25 positive words in English

positive words

The English language is full of many beautiful and positive words. Often these words trigger a specific memory, pleasant thought or a dream in our minds. The words that appeal to us are often very personal and the feelings they trigger are essentially unique to you. Here is my list of the top 25 words that appeal to me.

Ineffable

Ineffable means too great or extreme to be described or expressed in words. It reflects that feeling of awe such as what you feel when your first child is born.

serendipity

Serendipity is used to describe the occurrence and development of events by chance in a beneficial or happy way. That stroke of luck that comes at exactly the right time, out of the blue.

Ethereal

Ethereal means extremely light and delicate so that something appears not to be of this world. I associate this word with heavenly and beautiful things, such as dragonfly wings or a voice that gives you chills.

 

Iridescent

positive words Iridescent Iridescent is a word to describe seeing luminous colors that change when seen from different angles. This positive word reminds me of carefree days blowing bubbles and watching them float away.

Epiphany

Epiphany is that sudden moment of realization or revelation. That light-bulb moment that often changes your life. Everyone needs an epiphany now and then.

Luminescence

Luminescence is when a substance gives off light without being heated such as phosphorescence and fluorescence. The fun of chasing lightning bugs or stirring up the sea and being rewarded with an eerie green glow.

Eloquence

Eloquence is persuasive and fluent in writing and speaking. Don’t we all wish to be eloquent at the right times? What a bonus when you can give a speech and engage your entire audience!

Sonder

Sonder is the realization that every random passer-by is living a vivid, complex life full of their own ambitions, worries, friends and routines, in which you might be an extra on a park bench or a lit office on their route. As a people watcher, this positive word resonates.

Effervescence

Effervescence means enthusiastic and vivacious, and also the bubbles in your fizzy drink. This reminds me of the excitement of a child, perhaps even tasting their first fizzy drink.

Magnanimous

Magnanimous means being forgiving or generous to someone who is not a friend or is less powerful than you. I think we all need to be magnanimous and this world would be a better place.

Benevolent

Benevolent means being kindly and well meaning. Similar to magnanimous, except this kindness being expressed to anyone. Being benevolent has its own rewards, and it makes you feel great too.

Amusement

Amusement means enjoying entertainment or finding something funny. The world needs more laughter and we should be able to find amusement in most situations, even laugh at ourselves.

Contentment

Contentment is a state of satisfaction and happiness. I believe that for most of us, life is about striving for contentment. Appreciate the small things to find contentment in your daily life.

Determination

Determination is a firmness of purpose. Achieving anything in life takes determination. Set the goal and succeed through determination.

Dignity

Dignity is being worthy of respect or honor. I like to believe everyone should be afforded basic dignity as a right especially our elders, who have so much to share if we listen.

Flourishing

Flourishing means thriving, developing successfully and rapidly. We all want something to flourish: flourishing bank balance, perhaps a flourishing business, a flourishing garden. What a versatile and evocative word.

Harmonious

positive words Harmonious

Harmonious has three lovely meanings tuneful, forming a pleasing whole, free from dissent and disagreement. I like the peaceful feel this word has, like music from a waterfall.

Lustrous

Lustrous is basically a nicer word for shining. I like to think of this positive word as being used for hair and eyes, giving a description extra depth and reflection. Who wouldn’t want lustrous hair?

Noble

Noble has a number of meanings, but I like the one which refers to a person showing high moral principles or good personal qualities. I like to think that our aim as humans should be to strive to be noble.

Respect

Respect is the feeling of admiration due to their abilities, achievements or qualities. It also refers to giving the necessary regard for other people’s rights and feelings. Although for most people, respect is something that is earned, but we should offer basic respect to all humans.

Laughter

Laughter is the sound of someone laughing. This sounds more than almost any other has a way of lifting spirits. Laughter is contagious and makes us feel good.

Tranquility

positive words Tranquility

Tranquility is the state of being calm and tranquil. We all need this sort of peace in our lives now and then to regroup.

Unconditional

Unconditional means there are no conditions attached. I prefer this word as part of the phrase unconditional love. A love that transcends everything, there are no ifs and buts, a love that offers everything without demanding anything.

Smiling

Smiling is laughing in a smaller, quieter way. Turning those corners of the mouth up showing a happy look. Smiling is also contagious, and when it is genuine, it lights up your whole face.

Hope

Hope is the expectation that something will happen. Even when situations are dire, keeping hope alive is what makes the human spirit fight through the worst of situations. Never lose hope.

Those are my top 25 positive and uplifting words, what are yours?
