I recently did a brief Facebook post about this subject……..the law of attraction. Probably because it’s been on my mind a lot over the past week. If you read my recent post here, then you know why.
And after a week of making some positive changes, I have to say I feel better. And the only reason I’ve felt out of sorts these past eleven months is because “I” allowed it. Sometimes we get into a rut. We go along day after day thinking that the feeling of unease is normal. It’s not! Especially not if we become aware and take steps to change our mindset. Ah, the magic word…….mindset.
And every single day it’s our mindset that determines if we’ll have a good day or a bad day. An uplifting and positive day or an angry or sad day.
Around the age of 40 I discovered that I had a desire to learn more about myself and the people around me. This involved a huge amount of reading on various subjects. Books that involved spirituality, self-improvement, the metaphysical, the universe as it related to me. I learned a lot and it did completely change my mindset. No, it didn’t happen over night, but it did happen over time. As I had said on my other blog, last year I lost my way. But I’m in the process of recapturing it. And much of making that happen is being aware again. Paying attention.
Maybe because I’m a Pisces or maybe because I’m extra sensitive to people, sounds, places, etc. but during my time of self-discovery, I also learned I’m very much in sync with different vibrations the universe provides. Have you ever walked into a public gathering and just “felt” something? Maybe happiness. Maybe a sense of unease. Most of the time people tend to brush off these feelings. But I usually have not. Have you ever met someone for the first time and had a feeling of being connected? You can’t account for the reason. It’s something visceral. It……..just IS.
I’ve had these experiences for many years. And sometimes the vibration isn’t good. It’s not uplifting and positive, but rather the opposite. Maybe it’s a disgruntled employee at the check-out counter or somebody in a group setting. In the past I have either attempted to insert some humor and if that didn’t work I had the ability to separate myself with my good energy and simply ignore the person. But I recently discovered that rather than holding on to my good energy, I allowed myself to be sucked up into the bad vibrations they were putting out. And this is where it becomes a bad situation. In many ways.
Because these vibrations that the universe gives to us are gifts. And depending on which way we use this gift will determine the echo it sends back to us. Example: The check-out girl is nasty to me, I take in the bad energy, I leave the store and driving home somebody cuts me off, I swear at that driver and then miss the green light. By the time I get home I’m out of sorts. Yet, when I left the house I was in a good mood. How did this happen? Quite simply . . . I allowed it.
There’s bad energy all around us. Of course there is. Is it always easy to be Suzy Sunshine and brush it off? Not at all! But the magic is in awareness. I have lived it too many times to dispute the fact that if we project good energy, it will absolutely be returned to us. Many times in ways we never thought possible.
So give it a try. And remember what Abe Lincoln said: “People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
