Positive energies are the batteries that may us function better and more effectively. Without positive energies, we would not have the courage to face uncertainties, the determination to pursue our daily goals, and the strength to withstand any of our life tests and temptations.
Positive energies come from food, thoughts, words, people, and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. All these create a positive mental attitude that expects good and favorable results and anticipates happiness, joy, peace of mind, health, abundance, and success.
Fortunately, there are proven tools to help us attract and store positive energies every day. Some of these are:
Visualization is one of the most used and most proven tools in positive living. Using the power of your imagination, see yourself in the desired outcome. To visualize is to believe that it will happen. Just spend a few moments before the day starts and visualize how you want to day to proceed. Make sure that it is also good and fair to others as well as and visualization that involves the destruction and defeat of others is a negative energy.
3. Hang out with friends that grow your positivity:
It’s worth taking note which of your friends leave you feeling inspired and energized or drained and depleted (most of the time). As we usually have such an emotional connection to our friends they can greatly alter our own personal energy well-being.
After 10 years or so, I now have great friends who continually boost my energy well-being, well at least 95% of the time. Naturally there are times when we all experience low moments and that’s when true friendship can really shine. A balanced energy exchange is the ultimate aim of any friendship.
4. Marinate for a day in positive energy:
From this day forward treat yourself to one whole day (once a month is a good start) that is filled with nothing but positive energy experiences to restore your energy well-being. Treat yourself to simple pleasures that bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart. Hang out with friends that make you laugh, books that inspire you, cafes that make the best coffees in the world and eat lots of yummy healthy food. Heh, why not treat yourself to an all organic day.
Avoid TV, newspapers, hectic places, junk food, trashy magazines, conflict and friends who gossip. Turn yourself off from technology for one day.
5. Spend time alone.
Being still and resting in silence is one of the most healing and restorative practices you can do. All ancient cultures value silence, stillness and the breath as a way of cultivating positive energy.
6. Laughter really is the best medicine:
Laugh, loud, long and often. Laughter is the quickest and easiest way to snap out of a bad mood, release endorphins, natural pain killers and serotonin.
There’s lots of ways to grow your laughter muscle. Join a laughter club, smile at everyone you walk past, hang out more often with friends that laugh lots, put a smiley face on your coffee mug, fridge or pillow. Alternately create your own laughter mantra, and repeat often “The more I laugh the happier and healthier I become”
7. Surround yourself with living things:
Life attracts life, and we need regular contact with the very basics of nature, being fresh air, sunshine and fresh water. Feel the grass, sand or dirt between your toes, listen to the birds, watch the busyness of the ants and insects and feel the good vibes that plants, flowers and trees offer you.
Don’t become a slave to the concrete jungle of cities. If you can’t escape it, then bring nature to you with plants, fish bowls, pets, windows open. Studies have shown that a plant on your desk can reduce stress and uplift your spirits.
8. Brighten your mind:
Your thoughts will either bring you closer to attracting more positive energy or take you further away.
Do your best to catch dull thinking, and replace immediately with your own uplifting mantra. One of my personal favourites at the moment is “Every cell in my body is loved and healthy” or “I trust”
Give yourself visual reminders of the extra positivity you wish to attract. Place reminders beside your bed, on the bathroom mirror, fridge door, coffee mug or the steering wheel of your car.
