The second way is to focus on what didn’t work.
Many people spend a lot of time talking about something that went wrong. They repeat the story of how somebody did something to them. How they got caught in traffic and then retell the details three hours later. They are still angry and can’t let go.
What we focus on persists. We are amplifying that energy and we are going to continue to draw in that energy. How many times have you heard somebody say, “I’m having a bad day.” and then they tell everything that’s going on with their bad day. And guess what happens? Throughout the day, more stuff happens. Your brain wants to prove you right, it really works hard to prove you right. So what you are focusing on is what it gives you more of.
What if you imagine your life is like a Seesaw? If you put positive thoughts on one side and negative thoughts are on the other side, are you balanced? Are you more positive, even 51%, or do you spend the majority of your energy in negativity?
It’s a choice that we have in every single moment. We can reset the energy we live in. It’s just bringing your energy into awareness. What are you thinking about? Being aware of our reaction and thoughts if something goes wrong. Do you immediately say, what did I do wrong? How can I fix this or is it I’ll do better next time? Can you feel the energy difference around this?
Do you feel that day to day that you’re more positive than negative? Or do you think you still have a little bit of room for improvement? When we are in that energy of what went wrong, we’re not manifesting our desires. We are processing from our logic instead our body and can’t feel our intuition in our body.
Our body is the way we process that divine information, our bodies are the way we can figure out what steps to take. If you’re not present, you’re not able to process the information, feel the energy, and then you almost become paralyzed. You can’t decide. We all know someone who had a brilliant idea and did not take action on it because you couldn’t decide if it was right. Then we see someone else brings our idea forth.
When you are in that negative state, you can’t make a good decision. There is a reason that that statement “fake it until you make it” is out there. Sometimes you just must decide that things are going to be okay. You have to change the energy in your wording and life. Ask what can I change to make this day better?
Try doing something nice for someone else. Meditate, go for a walk, do anything to shift the vibration you are currently in. Because when you’re focusing on the positive, the good, it shifts your energy so that you’re moving from that state where you can’t feel your emotions and are closed down and stepping into possibility.
Start to use grounded affirmations. You can write out all the affirmations that you want, but if you don’t feel them in your body, if your body doesn’t think that it’s possible, it’s really hard to manifest. Try shifting your energy five degrees. Look at things from a slight shift in perspective. And then everyday time try and stretch yourself into what you want instead of what you don’t want.
