Making the decision to be a "positive thinker" and believer in the law of attraction has a huge payoff: a joyful life. But sometimes we get off track, lose focus and forget to direct our thoughts. If you find yourself temporarily lost in the muck of physical reality, here are some ways to remember what you already know. Life is all about perspective–make the choice to find a view you like!
1. Take nothing seriously
First off, lighten up! Sometimes life can seem dreary and boring and full of pain. But really, who cares? We're all going to die, so enjoy this life as much as you can. Make it fun! Make a mess! Enjoy your food! Take risks! Make mistakes! We're going to die! Fuck it!
2. Take responsibility for your thoughts
Your thoughts create everything in your physical experience. Accept this and you will be free! You won't have to blame anyone else, you won't have to feel guilty, and you get to be in complete control of EVERYTHING.
You can't get better at anything without practice, and the same goes for the way you think. Your only job in life is to feel good, so put in some hours! Smile, think about your goals, write momentum gathering posts, meditate, exercise, think about what you're grateful for. Use your website to keep yourself motivated. When you add positivity to the Internet, you're uplifting so many others around you. Think of it as a good deed!
4. Shape your environment
Get rid of anything that doesn't make you feel good. Food, books, papers, clutter, trash, anything that brings you down-toss it, now! If someone around you starts speaking negatively, shut them down with "don't let that dilute your focus!" You are under no obligation to let other people drag your mind around wherever they want. Stand up for yourself and your beliefs and don't tolerate negativity!
Life is a trip. The best advice I ever heard from someone about tripping was this: "if you find yourself feeling scared or overwhelmed, just meditate on love and you'll be ok." We're all looking for love. Love is what life is made of. Whatever your thoughts are right now, focus on the feeling of love and you'll find the relief you're looking for.
So what's my reward?
In return for all your positive thinking and feeling good, you get to live peacefully in the flow. Flow is a state of consciousness where your thoughts create your reality in real time, everything falls into place perfectly, and you feel deep, invigorating ecstasy. You have no fear, no worries, no troubles, only solutions, love and bliss. Whatever physical manifestations you desire will crop up around you, and you will feel appreciation for them. But you will know that they are just indicators of your good feelings, and you will already be yearning for your next desire.
