I went out for a friend’s birthday last night. It was great until about 3:30 a.m. when the quality of music dropped. I became desperate to go home and this morning, I woke up with a headache. I feel like I must have attracted it due to complaining, even just to myself; on the other hand, it could have been due to slight exhaustion from staying up for twenty four hours, swimming for four in the morning and then dancing for another four in the middle of the night. Either way, I need a painkiller, as my second coffee alone isn’t helping right now.
When you live seeking out your personal joys, you also begin to desire a healthy amount of quiet, recovery days, which feel even better than you can imagine.
Living with the purpose of enjoying ourselves and also enjoying some quiet time prevents you from having enough energy to ever engage in overthinking or even negative thoughts, benefiting your well being and directing your focus to seeking out even more joys in the days to come. And today, all I wanted was some quiet time. I wanted to not think about anything besides some work, some food and some TV. I needed to unwind.
As it tends to happen, physical pain can cause negative thoughts just like any other physical sensation does. I felt so bad physically that I started to have odd thoughts; however, I soon realized that it wasn’t any serious fear acting as a cause of these thoughts. I was just hungry and a body running on empty affects one’s mind accordingly.
This has happened before and I would always divert from negative thoughts…if I wanted to leave the situation badly enough. When I was hospitalized for appendicitis surgery, I summoned the motivation to start feeling better and be released. When I hated my second high school (our of three, in three different countries), I summoned all the motivation I need to manifest moving away with my family once again. But I didn’t want to leave my bed today which made it difficult to manifest a change in circumstances. So I just decided to manifest a headache away and magically found a painkiller even though I was convinced there were none left in the house. But the Universe always provides. I still have no idea where it came from.
After the painkiller kicked in, I could feel my body relaxing and was sure my confusing thoughts were about to disappear. I wanted to sleep but also work at the same time. Then, one of my best friends called me which made me very happy. I needed something wonderful to do and I had found it. I knew that if I distracted myself, my negative thoughts would pass, even though they made no sense to me at all. I believed my brain was just tired.
Negative thoughts passed as soon as I took something meaningful from them. Suddenly, I got to know certain answers and believe it was the Universe’s way of helping me relax even more. The Universe had sent me a message that said, “Don’t even react. None of our negative thoughts ever make sense!” I knew it but then remembered that over the past week, I had been working on a new theory of removing them, all for the purpose of a new book I’ve been working on. Now, I was given a chance to test my own theory by observing the thoughts that came from physical discomfort, and I have gained new insight into dealing with them. I have been asked about this by several readers and clients, and have always looked for new ways of removing those thoughts that bother so many because it is my goal to make lives easier.
Let’s face it – most of our negative thoughts are self-imposed and not at all connected to the people or situations we assign them to. If you simply let them pass, no matter how weird and uncomfortable they feel, or remind yourself they are meaningless and irrelevant, you will come to a point where they feel so ridiculous that you won’t even understand where they came from in the first place.
Law of Attraction advice isn’t just about getting what you want – it is also about relaxing yourself so that you could imagine having what you want which is the necessary first step. Much of the Law of Attraction advice can be explained in elaborate stages but it always comes down to the simplest concepts – feel the positive, ignore the negative, believe in what you want before you see the proof of it and don’t be afraid. Maybe it is the reminder of those concepts that holds the biggest Law of Attraction lessons, as the point is to remind yourself of what you already learned in order to create new, positive habits.
Negative thoughts seem even more distant now that I’ve just let them flow and had said to myself they were entirely self-imposed. I can look at their triggers and say, no. I have witnessed enough paranoia to make me realize that we don’t put ourselves into another person’s intentions by thinking negative thoughts about them but do so by thinking positive. We choose to engage in negative thoughts and perceptions about certain situations because of what we think, not because of the nature of that situation. We must stop perceiving our negative thoughts as some kind of threat – they’re simply here to tell us what not to think.
The less we think about how to remove any negative thoughts and the more we ignore them, the sooner they will go away. I could explain it in as many ways as you can imagine but it all comes down to this same idea. You might wonder how exactly you should distract yourself and the answer is, either by ignoring or persistence. Do something you enjoy until you forget about those thoughts you’ve been having, ask yourself why you have them for the purpose of realizing they only come from you or simply choose to think about something else. Just don’t think about “what they mean” or you’ll end up assigning meaning to them, scaring yourself in the process.
In short, if I only have negative thoughts when I’m tired, hungry and suffering a headache, they are completely self-imposed, not to mention circumstantial. Observe your own negative thoughts – do you recognize the same patterns?
Still happy, over my headache and ready for bed. Good night!
Getting rid of the feelings of anger, annoyance or irritation has been my personal battle against negative thoughts at times. It was either one of the following two – fearing boredom or feeling annoyed with people or circumstances completely unnecessary to my situation.
Once, my then boyfriend’s ex attempted to interfere with our relationship. I told him I would get end our relationship if he didn’t cut her off. He did. I have been harshly dismissing people who had attempted to involve themselves in any situation of my life ever since even though I am often aware that simply ignoring them is enough. And I can tell you that this irritation with them instead of pretending they don’t exist doesn’t make me feel good. Today, I have made a promise to myself that I will continue to act as if they don’t even exist – to me, this is positive thinking because it means removing myself away from negativity and the people generating it.
Lately, my weakness hasn’t been firing back at those that have tried to insert themselves into my life (you have to sometimes) but still being irritated with them long after I chased them away. Continue reading “The Stages of Overcoming Annoyance”
“You are in touch with everything that is natural to a human being – your mindset, mood, energy, feeding regimen, health, style and chosen methods of exercise prove it,” one of my closest friends said to me about a week ago. We talked about exercise because I had gone swimming the day before – being an avid swimmer, got an intense workout out of it. We talked about my love for the water and it being a natural element as well as one of my favorite surroundings; as the discussion progressed into my veganism, my friend said that he found my choices very natural and very easy to enjoy for that very reason.
“You can’t reprogram people’s minds for them – the best you can do is to teach them to focus on what they want instead of their fears and negative feelings, teach them to believe in themselves and let them do the work because we all create our own lives,” he said in addition.
What I do is tell them that they must be happily persistent in focusing on their desired realities instead of the current or their fears. Continue reading “Your Belief and Organic Happiness”
The other day, one of my closest friends said that good health seems to spill over into all aspects of life. When one’s health is in order, one’s entire life seems to move along swimmingly.
I loved the idea and I feel that way after a good night’s sleep. Waking up in the most amazing mood keeps me relaxed, with a clear mind. On the other hand, exhaustion can contribute to generally feeling low and gravitating towards negative thoughts.
Do you get enough sleep? Does it affect your thoughts?
One of the aspects of life I am grateful for every day is my terrific health. Something that should never be disregarded, good health is manifested using the same principle as absolutely anything else. At the same time, following ideas given by the field of medicine can be a co-creating tool but one should never forget their health is primarily their own choice. Medicine is useful so be grateful for it but you give the final word – how many truly believe this to be possible?
If it were impossible, there would not be a single case of individuals “miraculously” recovering from fatal illness to no tangible explanation. However, there are plenty of those cases yet still so few to show that true and unrelenting faith tends to rest in a rare kind of individuals. Faith means primarily believing in yourself.
LoA AND HEALTH
It is said that the human body already contains everything it needs to heal itself. Medicine helps but why believe that specific medical therapy works or doesn’t work – just because someone said so?
Aren’t we stepping into the essence of LoA?
Those who make decisions regarding their health must also mind their energy around it. Are they convinced the desired result belongs to them or are they testing various options hoping to see results? Are they keeping a positive attitude, helping their intuition guide them to inspired action?
I realize that believing in one’s good health/successful recovery while the doctors are uncertain of it isn’t easy for everyone. However, this concept comes down to the same creation principles – we all manifest what we believe to be true and that truth must exist in the mind before it can manifest into one’s reality.
If everything we need is already within us, so is the strength to manifest our own good health. Sometimes, medicine will help and other times, we won’t even need it. Even finding the right co-creation field depends on one’s positive attitude in finding the solution; one simply has to keep an open mind and focus on the end result they truly desire, producing positive energy which allows them to find that solution shortly.
MY OWN HEALTH
I maintain my excellent health with daily gratitude.
Last weekend, I was worried I would catch a cold having accidentally put on a thinner coat than planned in a moment of distraction. I didn’t exactly catch a heavy cold but wasn’t 100% either, which continued for as long as I accepted this state of my health. Maybe I just wanted to spend two days in bed with books, tea and TV. Then, I decided I was healthy and yesterday, woke up feeling like my usual self.
Illness can also come as a result of either a collapse or a raise of one’s vibration. Seven years ago, I endured four weeks of bed rest within the same year due to two different cases of illness. However, the positive personal changes I experienced over that year were even bigger. One of the cases of illness was an ear infection and one of the great personal changes was moving into my own, new, fantastic apartment. A decision to move away from another beautiful apartment with a roommate was followed by the ear infection which was followed by finding and moving into that incredible apartment. I had only found the apartment after having gotten healthy. It hadn’t been up for rent until then. However, I was positive I would find the perfect place the entire time.
Sometimes, the Universe works out the perfect timing even when you know it’s going to be soon. All you have to do is keep focus on your end goal and know that everything will come together soon.
Any day now, as I say.
MANIFESTING FOR ANOTHER
It might be difficult for you to imagine manifesting good health for someone else, especially one that keeps focusing on the negative.
I have once tried to advise someone who was ill. They weren’t up for cooperation. To every affirmative ideal I had, they would say, “I don’t know.” As simplistic as this may sound, try to apply this idea to anything one wishes to create – knowing is essential and without it, how could one possibly create their desired outcome?
Then, I asked, “Do you believe you could get better?”
They said, “I’m not sure. Sometimes I believe it’s possible.”
I asked them why just sometimes.
They responded, “I’m too old and tired. I can’t bring myself to hope. It might be my time to go.”
This person suffered chronic disbelief in their good health, the very thought of manifesting which made them exhausted. Disbelief can run deep which is why many refuse to even venture on manifesting their desires. Disbelief keeps them in their comfort zone to this day, with short-term improvements followed by the inevitable relapses. They can believe for a few days and then, fall back into negativity. They have not altered their awareness fully.
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
When it comes to your health, you will manifest what you believe to be true – just like any other aspect of life.
Are you the type of person who is always sick? Someone who always catches a cold, expecting it to happen? Or, are you always healthy and happy about it?
Now, be honest with yourself – are you grateful for your health every day? Do you believe you can feel as youthful and energized as you wish to be?
