Attracting Positive Energy into Your Daily Life
How much positivity you radiate can make everyone around you—and yourself—feel better. It reflects how well you take care of yourself, and how well-adjusted you are for facing obstacles in your life. Although there will be ups and downs in life, renowned health blogger Armaan Bedsa informs us that training yourself to attract positive energy is a practice that can equip you to face the world with better perspective and fortitude.
The great news is that there are concrete steps that you can take to practice inviting good vibes into your daily life. Here are some that you can start with.
Living in constant distraction, worrying about the past and present, can make it difficult to stay grounded in the present and make space for positivity. Mindfulness expert Jon Kabat-Zinn states that the capacity for awareness can be a superpower that everyone has access to. Mindfulness meditations are about focusing on what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment in a non-judgmental way. It can help you direct your thoughts away from being overloaded and reframe how you’re approaching the world.
Common mindfulness exercises involve breathing exercises, visualization, and other stress reduction practices. But mindfulness can also be something you can incorporate into your daily activities. Eating, exercising, driving, and even waking up can present opportunities for mindful meditation when you shift your attention towards focusing not on how you’re supposed to be feeling, but by bringing awareness to the physical sensations that you’re experiencing. In this way, you can reorient your outlook on the world and approach things with more positivity.
Throughout history and across cultures, crystals have been adored not only for their aesthetic appeal but also for healing and meditation purposes.
Crystals are minerals made up of different properties and compounds that hold energies that affect our bodies. Each crystal type has particular vibrations and frequencies, emanating from their physics and chemistry, that open your chakras and allow energy to flow through. For instance, Amethyst is particularly effective at warding off negative energy, while Citrine can be used to draw in prosperity.
Our post here on ‘Crystal Healing Techniques’ explains how crystals attract positive energy into your life, and even assist with depression. While crystals should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment, they can aid in bringing peace, joy, healing, and abundance.
Sometimes, good things are born out of luck; most of the time, we have to work our way to achieve them. While not everything can be in our control, practicing manifestation can help you a long way. If you haven’t heard of the law of attraction, it’s a simple but inviting belief: positive thinking can bring positive results into your life. This is based on the idea that thoughts are energy, and that thinking positively can manifest good things into reality. In his book ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’, Dr. Norman Peale highlights how facing the world is only a matter of how you think about your experiences. He notes that if you approach things with confidence, you can watch your problems shrink away.
Peale proposes a simple manifestation exercise: visualize your goals and the positive outcomes that you want to achieve. Vividly imagine what your life will look like in a matter of months, and then juxtapose that with the obstacles that you’ll have to overcome. This will change your behavior to help you move towards your goals, thereby bringing the future that you visualized for yourself into reality. Meditate on positive thoughts and images, and manifest them into reality.
Self-care is any act that can make you feel that you’re caring for yourself. It may sound simple, but while you should practice self-care in abundance, you should also keep in mind that too much of one thing can turn bad and that you can’t approach self-care one-dimensionally.
Verywell Mind’s self-care practices suggest evaluating how you practice care physically, socially, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. But sometimes, caring for yourself doesn’t just mean indulgence or relaxation. Often, it can also mean doing things that can put your mind at ease, by doing what you have to do. This includes getting through your responsibilities and tasks, running errands, exercising, or other things that you may not necessarily enjoy but will feel better about once you get them out of the way. When you clear these burdens out of the way, then you make space for more positivity in your life.
There is no singular approach to attracting positive energy, and each individual will have to try different methods to see what works best for them. At the end of the day, simple healthy practices and beliefs can make a significant change in how much positivity you can attract and radiate. It’s all a matter of what you choose to do.
