Are You Using the Guidance The Universe Is Sending You?
And the Universe plays this game with you EVERY single day.
But rather than say HOT or COLD, the Universe guides you with feelings. Positive feelings mean you’re moving towards something good for you. Negative feelings mean you’re headed in the wrong direction.
You may wake up one morning feeling negative about your job. The repetitive work is boring you, you feel under-Åappreciated, you just don’t feel you’re doing something you love. The negative feelings are a sign from the Universe that you need to change direction immediately. Changing direction does not mean quitting your job this instant – but it does mean you need to do something to fix your present situation.
You might feel the same way about your marriage, your career, your body, your home – the negative feelings are alarm bells going off. The Universe is saying “Warning Barbara , You’re thinking thoughts that are not the reality you wish to face. Keep thinking them and you’ll only increase the likelihood of these situations coming to you. You need to find a way to change your thoughts FAST!”.
Your Emotions are therefore, a warning system from your Soul. Pay attention to them, so that you’ll only attract into your reality things that are good for you. -
The first technique for thought control is simply called Expressing Gratitude.
People who let the Law of Attraction work for them are a certain breed of people. You’ll recognize them when you meet them.
They are often positive, joyful, in awe of the world, and full of love and compassion.
Sure, they sometimes face bad moments – feelings of despair, grief or sorrow, but they bounce back quickly. They seem to relish life itself.
A simple way to help you move into this state of joy and positive vibes is to start thinking about what you have to be thankful for.
And believe me, you have a LOT to be thankful for.
You may look at your 2-bedroom apartment, cheap car and 15” inch TV and compare yourself to wealthy people living today and feel that you have barely made it.
But think about this – you are richer than the richest people in the world living just 200 years ago. They did not have a “horseless carriage” that could carry them wherever they wanted to go. They could not use a phone to instantly communicate with anyone – anywhere in the world. They did not have a “magic story-telling box”, what we would call a TV – to entertain them. 200 years ago, the amount of information that the average wealthy person could consume in a lifetime, would be no match for the amount you can consume in ONE DAY through the Internet.
You may have an average income – but you would not want to trade places with a “rich” man living just 200 years ago. You have much to be grateful for!
So to get the Law of Attraction working for you, express gratitude for what you have. Because here’s the BIG secret – when you express gratitude for what you have – you allow the Universe to give you more.
Wallace Wattles hit the nail on its head when he said, “People who order their lives rightly in all areas are kept in poverty because of their lack of gratitude. Having received one gift from God, they cut the ties that connect them to God by failing to make acknowledgement.”
Why this works is because when you express gratitude for what you have, you put YOURSELF in a frame of mind – one that’s of joy and expectancy. Because you now focus on what you HAVE rather than what you DON’T HAVE, the energy you’re sending out is I HAVE A LOT.
And in return the Law of Attraction has to reciprocate by giving you A LOT MORE.
Without gratitude, the energy you put out is I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH – and so, by the Law of Attraction, you’ll keeping losing more and more until you don’t have enough.
It’s really easy. Just decide to spend a few minutes each day to practice being thankful for what you have.
- Your morning commute
- While in the shower
- Just before going to bed at night.
- In the morning, as soon as you wake up.
But what if something particularly bad happens – an accident or sudden illness?
The solution is a technique called Energy Redirection
The danger is that bad things do sometimes happen – accidents, illnesses, bad breakups, being laid off work. When this happens and you dwell on the sudden bad situation – you just create negative energy that amplifies the bad situation and keeps you locked in it for longer.
finding a way to change the negative thoughts into positive action.
When faced with a bad situation – think of a way to turn it into a CHALLENGE.
Apply creativity to the situation and any negative event can be turned into an exciting challenge.
Now, we’re not saying you need to forget or ignore the negative event. That can sometimes be very hard to do. But by finding a challenge, a goal – something that can motivate and inspire you – you now re-allocate a large chunk of your energy away from the negative thoughts.
In other words, thoughts that would otherwise be obsessed with the negative event can now be redirected and focused on something positive.
