"Think Positive" ~ Activating Compassion The Workbook ~
Many have heard this concept and phrase in millions of different ways; but it is still one of the simplest things that we can do to create miracles in our lives. As they say, where your mind goes is where the energy flows. However, thinking positive isn't just about being happy or trying to live by the Law of Attraction.
Thinking positive is taking the time to acknowledge what is working for you. It is paying attention to where things are flowing, instead of only paying attention to what isn't working. In society, we give so much attention to the screaming child, the devastation and destruction and what we don't like; but rarely do you see reports of wonderful things happening in the news. This is why many things perpetuate in a negative spiral; because we focus on what is "wrong" instead of what is "right".
As we learn to put our attention to what we want to create, we find that we get the signs and guidance and information needed to make those things happen in our lives. I have also learned to use this with people and situations. Instead of focusing on the things that I don't like about them; I will consciously look for their attributes, the blessings they are, what "good" things are coming out of a situation no matter how rough it feels. The more I do this, the more the blessings emerge and the more the challenges fall away.
You may not like a job you work; but you like the money it provides, so stay focused on I love having this money to use. In doing this, you do not attach yourself to the job; but you do create a connection to having those financial resources at your disposal. What this does over time, is create work that you love doing that provides you with those resources.
Putting our attention on what we enjoy allows us to receive more of it. Putting our attention on people's light allows us to see more of their light. Putting our attention on what is positive for us; allows us to receive more of what is positive for us.
