Did you know that you and everything around you is pure energy? Think about it: everything happening in your body is the result of electromagnetic exchanges between your cells. Moreover, the energy from your body can be detected using scientific instruments that measure biomagnetic fields on the surface of your skin.
The bulk of energy emitted from humans is concentrated near the area of the brain where thoughts are formed. Yes, even thoughts are energy and that is especially important when you consider the law of affinity which states that “like attracts like.”
It all started with Plato…
Plato coined the law of affinity in 391 B.C. when he claimed that likes attract: earth to earth, water to water. Over the years, Plato’s law of affinity evolved to what is now known as the law of attraction. You may have heard about the law of attraction in the best selling book The Secret, which reveals how every thought you have throughout every minute of the day creates your reality. That’s why it’s especially important to remain mindful of how we use the power of our own thinking: keep it positive because thoughts create energy which attracts more of the same.
Optimism versus pessimism…
Just think about the people around you. Have you ever noticed that optimistic people continually have good things happen to them while pessimistic people continually experience negative outcomes? Think of highly successful people that you admire. Their successes are based on their belief that they will achieve their goals. You may think of it as coincidence, fate or synchronicity but it’s simply a universal law that’s always in motion — just like gravity — always matching vibrations, whether is high or low, good or bad, positive or negative.
Oprah is a great example for advocating the power of positive thinking. Her quotes include:
“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
Oprah advocates positive thinking and gratitude. That is exactly the vibration you want to emit because that is exactly what you will attract more of in your life.
Three easy tips for staying focused on the good
- Watch your words! Don’t allow yourself to say negative things about yourself or anyone else. Words are the result of your thoughts, so when you feel something negative about to emerge from your mouth stop, check your thoughts, and shift to something positive. Not sure how to do that? Consider this little trick: “Wouldn’t it be nice if….” When you think about what would be nice to see, have, hear, experience then your thinking shifts and so does your energy.
- Visualize what you want. In your mind you can be anything, anywhere and you can feel great! Visualization is a powerful tool and it literally takes only seconds of visualizing something positive to shift your energetic field.
- Keep a gratitude journal. It only takes a couple of minutes to acknowledge the good in your life. Maybe it was a compliment you received, or that you found the perfect parking spot when you were rushing out to do some shopping during your lunch hour. When you tune in to all the good around you, then you begin to see how wonderful life really is. Your positive attitude creates an energy that is matched by the universe bringing you more good, more happiness, more relief. Who doesn’t want more of that?
