So I get a lot of people asking me how to stay positive and have good thoughts when it comes to all the crap that happens in the world or in our lives on a daily basis. And my answer is always simple. “Stop paying attention to it.” (Trust me, I know that answer will really piss some people off…my Mom hated when I said that…love you mean it Mom!)
Since we know that like attracts like, why would you want to pay attention to anything that you don’t want in your life? “But Geri,” I hear you all saying, “It’s real and it’s happening and we have to DO something about it!” And I say…
The best thing you can do to correct all that you perceive as ‘wrong’ in this world is to stop supplying that ‘wrong’ with energy. In other words, don’t push against those things you DON’T want, pull for the things you DO want.
So let’s say you have a problem with our current pack of politicians, or your own Home Owners Association, or even the guy driving down the road doing 25 in a 35 (this is a personal favorite of mine…). Human nature wants you to fight against that government, or that board, or that slow poke ahead of you. But, what you resist persists. So, if I’m sitting in my car ranting and raving about how slow this guy is driving, or watching the news every night shaking my head at all the doom and gloom….I’m just keeping it active in my vibration. Sooooooo, all that stuff is going to continue to show up in my life.
So, the question is. Are you pushing or pulling?
If instead of pushing against what you don’t want, you focus on what you do want, then THOSE things start showing up in your life. Try it. It works. If you don’t like what you see on TV, think about and imagine what you would like to see on TV. If you don’t like how your board is running things, think about and imagine the kind of board you do want. And instead of flipping off the guy in front of you…imagine that road ahead of you as completely clear.
Stop pushing. Spend some time pulling. You will be amazed at what starts appearing in your world and what stops…
