When we watch the news, read the papers or log on to social network sites and so on, it is very easy to become discouraged, or to despair of the human race. There seems to be so much unhappiness, hatred, and division, so much lack and poverty. Our own circumstances are often far from ideal, with things like health worries or financial problems looming, spoiling our enjoyment of life.
“That’s life,” we say, with a shrug, accepting our lot and putting on a brave face. We have conditioned ourselves to expect the worst, making the most of the best parts – while they last.
But this is not natural. There is a way of changing this pattern of behavior and lead happy, successful and joyful lives, just as they should be.
This term will probably be familiar. You may have even tried thinking positively about a particular issue or circumstance, only to find that it had no effect. This is not uncommon and, unsurprisingly, just goes to reinforce the beliefs mentioned above.
But when you set some time aside to really look into it, to change your way of thinking, your life will begin to change for the better as abundance flows to you.
So how does this work? Consider the universe, how unbelievably huge it is. Think about how much energy is out there. It is infinitely abundant.
Scientists tell us that everything is energy – everything. All the things we see, touch, taste, everything around us. This energy vibrates at different frequencies, which defines how it appears to us. And this includes us.
Whether we realize it or not, we are all shaping and creating our own realities, every day. The universe, with its infinite abundance, reads the signals we send out, often unconsciously. When it comes to these energies like is attracted to like. When we focus on the negative things that affect us, the universe sends more of the same, matching the signals that are emitting.
But when we match the frequencies of love, light, joy, wealth, prosperity and other positive things, then more of this is sent to us.
Abundance isn’t limited to money or wealth. Positive thinking, when applied properly, allows us to really change for the better as we shift our attention to all that is good, bringing abundance to every area of our lives.
And that is exactly as it should be.
