Powerful Positive Thinking

Life is a process and often pretty hard on us. We can lose lovers, fail as sexual partners, lie to our spouse or just stop loving someone we thought we would love forever. When you get slammed with a job loss, illness, or disillusionment what is the right step to take to pull yourself out of a tailspin. When I first heard people suggest we had energy fields, I starred in disbelief. They spoke about maintaining a positive energy field and that would attract positive energy to you. At different times in our life we are so depressed and desperate that we will try anything to get ourselves out of a slump. So why not good vibe ourselves and our situation?

I do not know what power positive thinking has on energy fields but every living thing does give off energy as life force. Every time that you interact with another person, no matter how hateful they may be, if you project a powerful positive energy then you have a sliver of chance at influencing the situation in a positive way. If you choose instead to contribute a bad attitude, unkind words and negativity, then you definitely increase the odds that things will get worse. What sounds like the smart move to you?

It may not be easy. Force your clenched jaw to smile. Increase the depth of your breath until your belly is moving in and out. Move your shoulders around and act a little silly and wiggly. Your panic will subside and your mind will begin to operate in a more relaxed and functional manner. Know that all life experiences eventually repeat, end or transform. Prepare yourself when times are great for change and when times are rough... count on change! For now, smile, even though your heart is breaking, and try to make the worst a bit more bearable.

Wishing you love, happiness, and positive "energy" always.
