We are energy! We have energy running through us. If you doubt me, rub your feet on some carpet and touch a another person. ZAP!
When you think a thought, you create an emotion which is a vibration in your body. Yep! You can feel it if you sit and be with your feelings for a while.
Maybe you will feel it in your head, or maybe your stomach, maybe your knees get week, maybe your throat gets tight, maybe your chest gets tights.
Something happens viscerally.
Your emotions become fuel for the way that you show up and present yourself. Emotions fuel your action or inaction, and that my friends is how we generate, create, and invite the results that we get.
You literally put off a vibration that attracts like vibrations.
Think about a time that you have walked into a meeting room or any room full of people. Think about the different vibes you got from different people. Some people were probably warm and friendly and some were not. Depending on what they were thinking, they were feeling a certain emotion, and that emotion was emitting a vibe.
Now imagine that you are trying to get a job or a promotion or attract wealth into your life. If you are showing up with a chip on your shoulder, mad at the world or jealous of everyone else’s good fortune, what do you think you are inviting?
- We invite lack by thinking about all the things we don’t have
- We invite scarcity by talking about what we can’t afford
- We invite drama by talking about other people and their drama
- We invite anxiety and overwhelm by stating those emotions as how we feel
Whatever you focus on grows. Have you ever noticed that? Try it.
Try going through the day and noticing all of the things that you love. Be very aware of all of the things that you see, feel, taste, smell…all of it. Write it all down all day long.
At first it will not come easy and then as you go along throughout the day, things that you love will feel abundant.
It works in reverse too…
The day starts out terribly and just gets worse. You get to work and nothing goes right. The whole day feels off and you just want this one to end so that you can start over.
What is the difference? Your thoughts!
Sure, things happen, they happen to all of us. What we think, and what we make them mean about us, and how we respond, is what sets the rest of the day up.
We can either invite more of the frustration or we can stop, take a deep breath, find a thought that flips the script and invite what we want instead.
Like attracts like. We have all heard that, but here is how it works.
If you are feeling happy and energized your give off that “vibe” (this is not woo, it’s science) and you attract people and experiences that are on the same current, the same frequency.
If you show up grouchy and pissy, you forecast that vibe in the way you walk, the way that you talk and the way that you move through your space. Even if you try to mask it…you are not fooling anyone!
You attract more of the same experiences that are on that frequency. You also attract the people who love nothing more that to be pissy and grouchy with you! Misery truly does love company.
Attracting, inviting and creating abundance in any area of your life is not complicated. It is only complicated by our thoughts.
We think in order to feel better, we just need to find a new job or make our boss understand or get through to our spouse and co-workers.
Nope, the only thing you need to do is manage you… manage your thoughts.
Now, saying that, doesn’t mean it’s easy, but it is the way the Universe works!
So, exactly how do you invite more of what you want into your life? Gratitude! Yep, turns out, that is the quickest way to up-level your vibe.
Gratitude cannot exist in the same space as anxiety, frustration and overwhelm.
We can get so easily distracted by the wanting of more and feeling of lack and scarcity. But when we stop and sit in a space of gratitude and thankfulness for what we have, we are given even more to be grateful for.
Managing your thoughts takes practice, you don’t get good at it over night, but… I am here to help!
