Stop attracting what you don’t want – practice being positive, especially when you’re going through a rough patch
Have you ever tried to avoid someone that you know, and then end up seeing them at the store or somewhere else totally random? And like…it got weirdly awkward because it was more than once? I know this might be hard to hear, but you may have played a part in making that happen. All of you out there that understand how the Law of Attraction works, are already on to what I’m saying here. Did you know that when you secretly wish or hope for something – that the tendency is to emphasize our current state of fear or lack?
OK, take that in and just bear with me for a minute. Law of attraction is about attracting what you desire, and in order to do that successfully, you need to put yourself in the mindset of what it feels like to have what it is that you want. Here’s where it can get counterintuitive: If you simultaneously think – ‘I wish or I hope that …’ then you are putting emphasis on the negative. There is an element of doubt when you wish and hope for what you want. Putting it another way – if you feel like you are attracting what you are trying to avoid…think hard about what you’re vibe-ing out there to the universe. Simple example: maybe you and your ex live in the same city, and you keep seeing him/her out and about – and it just either annoys you or really freaks you out (I don’t know your situation, nowadays I might just eye-roll). You may be unconsciously thinking to yourself ‘I hope I don’t see Idiot here today’ or ‘I’ll bet I see Psycho this afternoon – that’s my luck’. Congratulations, you just attracted that thing you don’t want into your life. How to avoid it? Think about how your best day would look, and don’t focus on what you don’t want in it – only on the things that you DO want.
You want your dream job? Picture yourself living that dream job. Feel what it feels to do that dream job. Keep doing that. Practice keeping yourself in that zone. It’s not easy – you really do need to practice! No more wishing or hoping for this or that. You fake it till you make it. If you have a desire for something – that’s a passionate feeling. Stay with that feeling as long as you can and do it again later.
Start practicing gratitude. I am so not kidding that this is incredibly powerful. If you’re not happy with where you are, it’s unlikely you’ll truly be happy with what you are asking for. If this is hard for you, if you are in a rather dark place…it’s OK. Start small. But just start. Just do this when you close your eyes at night to go to sleep. ‘I’m thankful that I’m breathing’, ‘I’m thankful that I was given these beautiful children to raise’, ‘I’m thankful for these troubled times, because I’m learning and growing better from every challenge in life’.
Again, if nothing else, ‘I’m thankful that I’m breathing.’
