The Law of Attraction gets a lot of press. It is a simple notion, that the things you imagine, visualize, and focus upon in your mind can become manifest on your concrete existence. Conversely, focusing on the negative possibilities may help bring those circumstances or events into reality.
Attraction is a simple concept, but it is not always easy to implement. Old patterns of thinking, depression, and the influence of others may inhibit the success of positive thinking. Here are 4 steps toward success in achieving a state of positive thinking where you can utilize the Law of Attraction:
1. Take care of your physical body. The body and mind are linked, and the health of one certainly impacts the health of the other. Eat healthy, whole foods, including fresh vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains. Avoid processed foods and refined sugars. Take natural supplements such as a food based multivitamin, calcium if you need it, and fish oil. If you struggle with mild depression, try L-Theanine and 5 HTP (hydroxytryptophan). Implement an exercise plan approved by your doctor.
2. Release your negative thinking about yourself. To accomplish this, you may need counseling to help you work through your individual issues and faulty self perception. The support of close family and friends also goes a long way toward helping you to feel better about yourself. Imagine yourself as being just who, and where you need to be right now. Understand that you have purpose and meaning in the universe.
3. Release your negative thinking about others. If you are harboring anger or hurt toward someone, try allowing yourself the full emotion and physical effect, then make a decision to release it. Imagine you are just where you are meant to be at this moment. Try to comprehend and accept that the person who wronged you is working with and doing what they can with whatever they have, even if it isn't much. Imagine the potential benefits that may come from the negative experience, and practice releasing the offender or the event to the universe, to whatever God has in store for him or her.
4. Begin "daydreaming" about the things you desire. Is it a new house? A happy relationship? A car? A more fulfilling job? Imagine how it will feel, taste, look, and smell to have the thing you want. The more detailed you can make the sensory experience, the better. If a negative thought enters your mind, imagine a big red "X" through it and say "Cancel" or another dismissive word.
