I recently got my heart somewhat broken. When I say somewhat, I mean it was torn out of my body and tossed in the bin. You’ve all probably experienced something like this, you know that you feel anything but positive. Sure, you have your good days, but there are more days spent watching Netflix alone or with your parents. It’s time to welcome back the positive vibes.
How to get those positive vibes
You don’t need to go to Woodstock to attract positive energy. You can foster it in your own body.
#1 Accept that you’re not where you want to be. Finally accept the fact that where you are in your life is not where you want to be.
#2 Know what you want and need. This is really hard to do because most of us don’t know what we want or need. But how about you start with the things you don’t want. You may find it easier to then see the things you appreciate and value. If you know what you want and need, focus your energy on achieving it.
#3 Switch your focus. If you want to attract positive energy, you’re going to have to change the way you look at things. Now, I’m not saying you’re a Debbie Downer, but, you probably don’t see the glass half full most of the time. It’s time to change that.
#4 Get spiritual. Now, you don’t have to start believing in god or become a Buddhist, that’s not what this is about. However, you should understand that everything is made of energy. So, acknowledge that we are not the highest form of energy. You can view this in a spiritual or religious way. For example, I view Mother Earth as something greater than myself.
#5 Be honest with yourself. Oh god, this one is a struggle, trust me. Being honest with yourself means coming forward and acknowledging who you really are as a person. It’s not easy. You may realize that in many situations you’ve been a complete asshole or that you’re not as good of a friend as you think.
#6 Start breathing! We’re so busy running around and getting distracted that we forget to breathe. Okay, I mean, we breathe or else we’d all be dead, but what I mean is, we need to sit down and really breathe.
Take deep breaths in and out, focusing on your body. It’s all about relaxing the mind and body to allow positivity to cultivate within. I know this sounds like hippie stuff, but it works.
#7 Laugh. Laughing is so important for cultivating positive vibes. It’s the moment where you feel true joy. If something’s funny, laugh. Who knows, maybe you’ll make an entire group of people join in because laughing is contagious. So, spread the love by giving out a laugh.
#8 Recycle positivity back to your community. If you want to receive positive energy, you need to give out positive energy. So, compliment someone you see or help an old lady cross the street. If you recycle positive energy back out to your community, not only will you feel good, but you make other people aware of the power of positivity. ]
#9 Let go. You need to let go. I know, it’s really hard, and it’s going to take you some time to be able to. However, you have to do it. Let go if you want to attract positive vibes. You have no control over anything except your reactions. This is just something you need to accept.
#10 Visualize a positive life. Every day we’re burdened with negative thoughts. You won’t get that job promotion, you’re not smart enough, not thin enough—they’re constant. But to break this cycle, spend more time visualizing yourself having a positive life.
