Just for a minute, think about something that really pisses you off….feel the anger that comes with it. Now clear yourself and think about something sweet & happy…something that brings you pure joy. Hold that thought for a moment.
Now…..which one do you think took more of your energy from you? Which one do you think gave you more energy? We think about how other people affect us with negativity but we tend to forget that our own thoughts can also feed or take away from our energy. The more positive thoughts we put out, the stronger and more positive our energy field is. We feel better all the way around. So…..where do you want your focus to be? How to you want to feel? You can choose to shift your thoughts if you find them turning to negative ones. It takes practice so don’t stress yourself over not having it happen right away. We’re bombarded with negative thoughts & visuals daily….TV, radio, social media, life in general with work & finances. Very simply, pick a visual that makes you happy…..a laughing child, wiggly puppy, bright flowers….whatever your happy place is. Anytime you find your mind wandering to those energy zapping negative thoughts, tap your finger on the center of your forehead (helps activate the 3rd eye) and think about the visual to your happy thought….just for a few seconds. This will help shift your thought process and replace the energy lost to the negative thought.
If you’re happy and you know it…..yep…..clap your hands! Laugh it out!
Many happy thoughts & smiles to you,
1. Remember that the past does not equal the future.
There is no such thing as a “run of bad luck.” The reason people believe such nonsense is that the human brain creates patterns out of random events and remembers the events that fit the pattern.
2. Refuse to make self-fulfilling prophesies.
If you believe the rest of your day will be as challenging as what’s already happened, then rest assured: You’ll end up doing something (or saying) something that will make sure that your prediction comes true.
3. Get a sense of proportion.
Think about the big picture: Unless something life-changing has happened (like the death of a loved one), chances are that in two weeks, you’ll have forgotten completely about whatever it was that has your shorts in a twist today.
4. Change your threshold for “good” and “bad.”
Decide that a good day is any day that you’re above ground. Similarly, decide that a bad day is when somebody steals your car and drives it into the ocean. Those types of definitions make it easy to be happy–and difficult to be sad.
5. Improve your body chemistry.
Your body and brain are in a feedback loop: A bad mood makes you tired, which makes your mood worse, and so forth. Interrupt the pattern by getting up and moving around. Take a walk or eat something healthy.
6. Focus on what’s going well.
The primary reason you’re convinced it’s a bad day is that you’re focusing on whatever went wrong. However, for everything going badly, there are probably dozens of things going well. Make list, and post it where it’s visible.
7. Expect something wondrous.
Just as an attitude of doom and gloom makes you see more problems, facing the future with a sense of wonder makes you alive to all sorts of wonderful things that are going on, right now, everywhere around you.
