"By choosing better-feeling thoughts and by speaking more of what you do want and less of what you do not want, you will gently tune yourself to the vibrational frequency of your Broader Perspective. To see your world through the eyes of Source is truly the most spectacular view of life, for from that vibrational vantage point, you are in alignment with—and therefore in the process of attracting—only what you would consider to be the very best of your world."
---Abraham [Excerpted from the workshop: Money and the Law of Attraction on August 31, 2008]
This follows along with yesterday's post (and this was not intentional either). Remember how I mentioned my battery "problem". In the past I most likely would have hung onto the "how bad my luck is" all day long and completely missed the joy of having all the other issues taken care of for me (the oil change and inspection sticker). But I focused on how fortunate I had been to be able to get my colleague before he had left for work and also focused on how happy I was that I made it to work on time. As I wrote yesterday - the entire Universe then opened up before me.
Maybe you can't always be a pollyanna and no one will fault you if you can't. Some things appear so very tragic or even appear hopeless that it's a normal reaction to plummet to the depths of despair. But when you have something happen or think it might happen (worry), try to focus on better feeling thoughts. Use those "Kodak Moments" you've stored up. Or look around you and find some beauty in something. If you're in your house, think about how beautiful it is and how luck you are to have a roof over your head. If you're driving and start to worry or think about things that are not making you feel good, switch gears and focus on some beauty or intriguing technology in the cars around you. You can find something to think about or focus on that will make you feel better than you already do.
Try it this week. As soon as you catch yourself thinking about something that is not making you feel good (and maybe making you feel bad even), promise yourself you're going to immediately find something else to focus on. It could be love, could be a person you think is brave, it could be a sports event, it could be anything. Just make sure it's something that makes you feel better than what you were just feeling.
Let me know how it's working for you. Keep track of how often you succeeded in changing your momentum this way.
