What the Thinker Thinks, The Prover
By: Lynn Bacon, CPLC, CRC,
Your mind has two main functions; a thinker and a prover. Whatever you think, the prover
side proves that thought to be true. Your unconscious can't help but to be honest so it will
continuously prove your thoughts to be right. I know this sounds a little confusing...
Have you ever misplaced your cell phone or your keys? You tell yourself that you can't find them,
don't you? Then the proving side of your mind alters your perception and blocks out remembering where

we'll prove that to be the truth. Eventually, the circumstances of our lives will align with our
thoughts. The way your life is right now is the result of what you've been
thinking and feeling throughout your life. For instance, if you think you're unworthy all of the evidence in
your life will prove
you to be unworthy. So, the question here is, is your life the way you want it to be? Do you have the
relationships you want and the way you want them to be?
Are we doomed to what our subconscious thinks? No! What areas of your life would you like to
change? Just change your thoughts. Just keep telling yourself that you are
worthy, you can have the relationships you want and you can live the life of your
