Life and nearly all that happens to us is a result of the energies we emit. Have you noticed how optimists succeed in almost everything, while the pessimistic individual finds it difficult to navigate through life? This is not to say that life can deal with us or present challenges to us as humans. But our reactions to life go a long way in helping us to either overcome or be overwhelmed by these challenges. Emitting positive energy attracts positive things to us, and vice versa.

Previous studies on human and mind composition state that our minds, bodies, and spirits are composed of energy, which vibrates out and is felt by others. Those vibrations reverberate within us and affect our energy stores. Little wonder we may feel comfortable, warm, and energetic in the presence of some people, but distant, nervous, and gloomy around others. The big truth about life and everything in it is that we humans carry some form of energy with us, and it affects not only us but all the other people we come in contact with. Several teachers have called this phenomenon the “Law of Attraction”.  According to S. Whittaker, the Law of Attraction is a pseudoscience founded on the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person’s life. The belief is based on the idea that people and their thoughts are made from “pure energy” and that a process of like energy attracts as energy exists through which a person can improve their health, wealth, and personal relationships.  With the above definition and description of how human energies beget realities, this article will discuss how to attract good energy and make your life a pleasant reality.
  • Pay Attention To The Energy You’re Emitting

If you want to attract good energy, you have to be watchful of the energy you emit most of the time. You can’t emit dark energy and expect to attract good energy. Think about the kind of vibes people get when they spend time with you. Maya Angelou aptly stated that “people won’t forget how you made them feel.” The emitting negative energy of bitterness, fear, doubt, coldness, and harshness, people naturally avoid you like a plague. People don’t like to associate with bitter people. Traditionally, people are attracted to free-spirited, peace-loving, energetic, and lively individuals.

  • Change The Tone Of Your Thoughts

It is very difficult to stop thinking about negative thoughts. It is easy to slide into pessimism or fear or doubt. The human mind is naturally wired to seek safety, shun risk and stick to the comfort zone. However, you can challenge your thoughts by controlling what you think about most often. When you are tempted to think about negative things, you can place a structure of self-defense and self-discipline. You can always reframe your thoughts from fear to hope. For instance, instead of saying “Life is difficult for me and I don’t think I will come out of my troubles”, you can rather say ” Although life is full of challenges I am capable of coming up with solutions to problems and I know I will adjust to these changes.” The painful truth about negative thinking is that it breeds negative energy which attracts the wrong kinds of circumstances to you. As the Dalai Lama says, “See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort.” Actively work to change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive. Your thoughts help you to see circumstances differently.

Our thoughts are shaped by our surroundings and the people that surround us. Imagine having to hear news of deaths and illnesses daily. Our minds may be full of these things. And when our minds are full of them, our worldview becomes gloomy. In a world full of bad news and bad people, we must be deliberate on what to listen to and who to associate with. Your negative thoughts may be that there are people in your life who are toxic to your overall happiness. Possibly their constant evil judgments bring you down, or you find yourself picking up their bad habits. Cutting these people off will start a healing process in your life and will enable you to become a person of positivity. Our life is 100% made up of what influences us. This is why you must avoid toxic people and harmful materials, be it books, movies, music, and the TV news. For those that are a permanent fixture, work to limit your exposure to them and mentally fortify yourself before you encounter them.
  • Expand Your Circle

Our lives are made up of what influences us. This is why you must be deliberate in seeking to expand your circle. There is something called “a circle of influence” that you must be very aware of and take decisive steps to surround yourself with positive, successful go-getters who are supportive and caring. Keep company with those who bring positive energy with them, and make sure you cultivate and protect those relationships. Also, spend time reading more life-transforming and soul-lifting materials. Listen to positive-energy building podcasts, and watch what makes you laugh more.  Featured Image Source: Guy Counselling
