Many times when we are in a difficult or uncomfortable situation we focus on the negative. All those things that we don’t like about the situation or person flood our minds. We can list all the reasons that we don’t like it or them. Then we wonder why we are attract more of the same.
You don’t need me to tell you the laws of attraction. You know that like attracts like, regardless of it being positive or negative thoughts that we put out there, into the Universe. You also know that your thoughts carry energy. Not only does the energy carry outwards it also resides within.
Your negative thoughts regarding the situation or person become your dominant energy within you. Carrying around this negativity can leave you feeling:
The action that result from this often include:
Bitching / arguing
Taking a job just for the sake of it or just for the money
Do any of these feelings or actions resonate with you at this moment?
In my own experience I have found that what is required is more light. When there is light in a dark situation you see clearly, when you see clearly you can navigate toward the outcome that is for the Highest good. But this all begin with you. You have to change.
Changes requires conscious awareness. You need to be aware of your thoughts, feelings, words and actions. For me, the most important of these are thoughts and feelings, as I usually find that they determine my words and actions. Therefore, when I change my thoughts my feelings change. When I master the two I worry less about my words and actions being negative because when my thoughts and feelings come from a place of love and light so do my words and actions.
There will be times when others will misinterpret my words and actions. I’m sure this has happened to you too but this is okay. For if it truly is expresses from a place of love and light then your intention was good. However, maybe the other person was not in a place where they were ready to receive this. My advice: Don’t take it personally. Keep breathing love and light into the situation. But, I digress.
You may be in a job you have outgrown, a relationship which no longer fits or work with a whinging boss and you want out. You may feel there’s no way out but there is and it begins with you. Start thinking about the things that you can change that will bring a feeling of peace and serenity. For example, instead of thinking about what you hate about your job start thinking about the skills you’ve gained, the insights and experiences you can use in your next role. Rather than lamenting the possible end of your relationship think about the ways in which you’ve grown and the lessons you’ve learnt.
In essence it’s about changing your perspective on the situation and the person, rather than changing the situation or the person. Often I have found that the situation seems less bleak or the person, less annoying, because I am at peace from within. It is from this place of peace that I can hear the quiet whispers of the energies around me, guiding me towards what I ultimate desire. From this place I make better decisions, I see more opportunities and I am received better by other people. All in all, taking the action of action brings me in alignment with what I want. Bringing it closer, not further away.
So what are you going to change? Have you got a story about changing your thoughts and focus that you’d like to share? Do you have any tips that might help someone else? If you feel moved to share then I’d love to hear from you.
