We have all heard it before when you think positively and act on that, more positivity will be in your life: who does well, meets well. But how does that work exactly? What is positive energy and how can you attract and use it to achieve your goals? In this blog more about how you can use the tool called energy to making positive changes.
What is energy?
There are many descriptions of the word “energy”. Physically it is described as the mechanical reaction between the law of conservation of impulse with the law of conservation of energy. The dictionary gives a more simple description: “The possibility to bring about a change.” Although the energy itself is not tangible, everyone knows what energy is. And as the dictionary indicates, it is a tool that you can use to implement positive changes.
Where is energy?
Energy is literally in everything; all solids, liquid and gas forms. Albert Einstein said: “Everything is energy and that is all there is. Match the frequency of reality because you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics!” Because energy is ever where, it is also in your own thoughts, beliefs and feelings. That also means that you can use the energy of your own thoughts, beliefs and feelings for what you want. In addition, if you also see what you want (visualize), the universe reacts very strongly to it. This is also called the Law of Attraction. Attracting likeminded means that life responds to the energy you send out. “Life is not happening to you. Life is responding to you.”
How do you convert energy to what you want?
Attracting more positive energy to reach your goals starts with yourself. When you have positive thoughts, beliefs and feelings, this is automatically picked up by your environment. If you constantly think of the worst, if you do not believe that you can ever achieve something, if you do not believe that someone can be good, if you constantly complain, if you always see the negativity in situations, if you regularly put others down, if you are a negative person, you will develop negative energy and in the end you will only attract more negative situations in your life. The way you see things and start by eliminating negative thoughts and negative beliefs will help you change your energy so that you start to attract what you want. This means that you focus on positive situations, understand that things will work, are looking for solutions instead of complaining, have more understanding instead of getting angry, try to look at things from a different perspective, embrace change, seek out to opportunities instead of problems and no longer believe that the worst will happen. In the beginning this will not be easy, but because you constantly change the way you think and see things, you will naturally attract more positive situations in your life.
Is it really that simple?
Yes, the power of energy is strong and when you use it correctly it can make an absolute contribution to your goals. What’s not easy is to always stay positive. To always see the-glass-half-full. To hold on the belief that you can even when things don’t work out. That is simply hard work in the beginning, but there is a turning point. Then positive thinking goes automatically and you do not get irritated by a situation, but you see the extra possibilities it gives. Then you do not feel like standing with your back against the wall, but you see the space that still is there. The more often you think positively, the more clearly you visualise your goals, the more positive the path towards them.
Full steam ahead!
I have been using the power of positive energy for years. It has not only helped me to set up two successful companies, to find my big love, but also to have more fun in the everyday things of life. And sometimes it happens to me that a lot goes on and a negative thought happens or for I feel irritated. Sometimes complaining feels like a wonderful way of relief. In the beginning I found it difficult to approach everything positively. These are my personal three tips that have helped me to discover and retain my positive mindset:
- Take distance, let go
Sometimes there is so much around you or going on in your head that it is difficult to get an overview. That stress gives a negative flow. To get out of it, it can help to let things go and do something else: walk, listen to music, play sports or go to the cinema spontaneously.
- Keep repeating
When it feel like everything is against you, not working out and you’re wonder why, focus on the ultimate goal and why you want to achieve it. Forget about the rest, forget about the setbacks, they do not matter. You visualize your goal and visualize you will achieve it.
- Have fun
Nothing is easy to hold on to when there is no fun involved. Enjoy visualizing your goals, throw in some humor, blow up some balloons, laugh at yourself: just have fun with it.
