The energy we carry with us daily, is what makes our days great or not so great. Positive energy will help us be happy, excited, and all around good. Negative energy will have us feeling sluggish, sad and not very good. Worry, fear, anxiety, doubt or resistance in the form of limiting beliefs pollute and dilute our positive energy. For example, which one is better: “I’m in love with this dream, but I don’t know how to make it happen!” or “I’m in love with this dream and I just love how it’s all coming together for me!”. Well of course the positive statement is going to keep our energy at a level of feeling happy, excited and all around good. We have to fill our every cell with positive emotions of love, happiness, joy, peace, hope, compassion, kindness… and let that bright light of positive energy radiate outward to attract what we want! The more we amplify positive emotions, the more of a magnet we are for attracting other positive souls and the path to make our dreams come true!
We all have a little negativity that takes us off course from time to time. We also all have those people in our lives that are energy drainers and are negative about everything around them. Unfortunately for them they are creating their own low energy and negativity in their lives. We do not have to follow suit with them. We can keep our energy high by focusing on positive emotions that will produce more enjoyable “feel good” effects for us. When we encounter a negative soul, listen to them, let them be, because we are not going to change who they are. I have learned if I pick up a negative soul’s energy to literally brush my arms off as to leave the negativity behind and go back to concentrating on my positive energy filling every one of my cells with love, happiness, joy, peace, hope, compassion, kindness, etc… Let’s keep in mind we all have MOMENTS or SITUATIONS that bring us to a negative place, after all we are human. This is when we need to reset our intentions for ourselves. We’ve talked about setting a positive intention every morning for our day when we first wake, in a past blog. Ok, so here is where I get a little corny: negativity arises within you, turn your face to the sky out in the open air, #1 tell yourself I will not allow myself to go into this low energy, #2 I am complete, I am whole, I am happy, I choose positivity, #3 take a deep breath and smile. Now tell me that you do not already feel better and you are turning back to your morning intention of having a great day.
Imagine if you were to start giving heartfelt appreciation for everything in your life. I mean everything! Not just the good and the happy but the bad, the scary, the unpleasant, the difficult, the painful. What if you were to start seeing the positives and lessons in everything, and the beauty in all people? What if you were to realize that your happiness does not depend on anything but your decision to be happy? What if you said to yourself, “I don’t have to allow this to bring me down. I can deal with this situation in a spirit of optimism and joy of living? The happy, positive, successful people choose to see beauty in everything. They see the silver lining and the opportunities. This is all a daily practice and does not come into play overnight. We have to give ourselves love and patience to take each moment and situation as they come and put a positive light on them. After all we are all a work in progress in our lives and daily practice is how we become our best selves.
Life is a Journey my friends make it what you want it to be!
