Are you living the life you want?
A lot of people answer with
‘Well not quite.’
‘It’s ok and I’ve accepted it is as good as it gets.’
‘I’d love to travel more, but let’s get realistic, that is never going to happen.’
‘More money would be nice, but I’m never going to be rich.’
And you know what? Each statement gives a clue to the thoughts and beliefs that these people are living with – and reinforcing.
And – here’s the kicker– those thoughts and beliefs are sending energetic vibrations out (all thoughts are energy) that are attracting the very situations that they are declaring. So the more they declare it, the more they receive it which usually reinforces it in their subconscious as ‘truth’.
We get what we expect.
The most potent form of energy is thought. Every thought vibrates with a specific frequency.
Most of us attract by default because we just let the law of attraction come in and give us what we focus our thoughts and feelings on rather than intentionally focus our thoughts on what we desire.
Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, we activate a matching energetic vibration which starts bringing the experience, situation or thing to us. The more we focus on it, the stronger the energy becomes to attract it to our lives.
We would not think of ignoring the law of gravity because we know the consequences. But many of us ignore the law of attraction with consequences that are just as significant as ignoring gravity. We may not fall off buildings, but we will certainly live life with much less abundance, purpose and prosperity than we would if we used our thoughts to create the life we desire.
And it doesn’t stop there. Negative thoughts can make us sick.
The toxins generated by toxic thoughts interfere with the proper workings of the digestive system. (Dr Caroline Leaf).
Research has shown that 75-98% of physical, mental, emotional and behavioural illnesses come from toxic thinking.
Give it a try
What we focus on expands. If we focus on what we don’t want, we are inviting it to come knocking on our door and we’ll just let it in because we believe that is the best we can get.
For the next week or so, think of your thoughts as a playlist on the MP3 player in your head.
What playlist comes up automatically in response to situations, invitations, possible opportunities or mistakes you might make?
For many of us, our inner self critic often speaks the loudest with lies that hold us back.
Whenever a negative, self defeating or ‘that would be impossible’ thought comes up on the playlist, change the song to a positive version of the situation.
At first it may feel uncomfortable or even unrealistic, but just keep repeating the positive version in your mind and see what happens. Thoughts trigger emotions and at the very least, many of you will start to feel your emotions lifting a notch or two.
If you do this consistently, you will be in for some very pleasant surprises!
