The Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought were uncovered in 1973 by a Scottish Welder called Sydney Banks. This uncovering, although not 'new', after all this understanding is the touchstone of most religions and faiths, has led to remarkable transformations amongst people from all walks of life. People are touched by the Three Principles of Divine Mind, Consciousness and Thought because when people learn about the powerful resources that lie inside all of us, miracles happen and lives are transformed.

Consciousness brings our thoughts to life. It makes us aware that we are alive and thinking. It is what makes our thinking look so real, every thought you have is brought to life through the gift of consciousness.
Thought gives us our moment to moment reality. We are always feeling our thinking and whatever we are thinking feels real. But what is thought? Thought is energy in our heads, and it is the frame that we put on that energy that gives us our thought and our feeling.
