Changing Your Reaction, Can Change Your Life!

As much as I talk about the Law of Attraction and how you can shape your life to be whatever you want it to be, we all know at the end of the day, some things are out of our control and happen for no reason. 

What shapes you as a person is how you REACT to the not so good things in life. 

Some people believe that because certain things in life are out of our control, that everything is out of our control. Very wrong. It's been scientifically proven for decades and decades that the Law of Attraction is just as powerful as the Law of Gravity. You just need to know how to use it. So technically, nothing is out of our control, but we are all human and can't constantly be positive, so it's very hard to control EVERYTHING in our lives. 

Like attracts like... this means that positive energy attracts positive things. Which means when you're positive, you WILL attract positivity and great outcomes. 

You know when you're able to get yourself to that state of pure happiness? Where everything is great? You're thankful for everything and feeling on top of the world? ... When you get yourself to that state, see what you attract! The results are pretty incredible!

Sometimes we can be on a positivity roll! One good thing happens so you feel good, and things start snowballing your way. One good thing after another. Sometimes in the middle there, something crappy might happen. Most of the time when bad things happen it makes sense. You could be in a bad mood, or you're saying negative things, you might be judging yourself or just feeling down. All of these things attract negative things, so it makes sense that a negative situation or circumstance would come your way. 

In saying that, sometimes it doesn't make sense. One thing you can't control is other people. Sometimes other people's actions might hurt you, or change your mood, or affect you in some way. How you react to these things make you WHO YOU ARE. You are the only person who defines you, and you are the only person who can decide whether you're having a good or a bad day. Try your hardest not to let these negative circumstances affect you. Accept it, deal with it, be thankful for it, and move on. (I know being thankful for something negative seems weird, but gratitude is one of the fastest ways to speed up the process of the Law of Attraction.) 

Sometimes it's comfortable to wallow in your bad mood. It's easy to stay mad, to have a cry or to get some attention. But you aren't helping yourself at all! Get yourself out of that state straight away, and look at the situation from an outsiders point of view. Someone is always worse off than you. Yes, what has happened sucks, but it's time to move on and change the frequency you're projecting so you can make room for good things to come your way. 

The amount we learn from negative situations and circumstances is amazing. There are so many things I look back on, and at the time I thought it was the worst thing in the world, and I was so mad and negative about it, and now I see why it happened! Everything happens for a reason, there aren't any 'coincidences' in this world, everything that happens to you has been sent to you from the Universe for a reason. I have learnt so much from all the negative things in my life that have happened. 

Try and make a huge effort when negative things do happen to move on as quickly as possible, forget about it, don't look back and do your best to get positive again!

Your life, your terms!

Do you want to be constantly happy? Constantly smiling? Constantly in awe of your own life?! Well you can be, and the only person who can help you get to that state of happiness is YOURSELF. I find this so exciting, because YOU are in charge, and YOU can make a change. You can literally create the exact life that you want with your mind, some positivity and determination. 

In this day and age, social media plays a huge part in all of our lives. We scroll through Instagram and subconsciously compare ourselves to others. 'I should be as skinny as her, I eat the same,' I should have abs like her I do the same workout,' 'I should have a car like she does, I work just as hard,' 'I wish my hair was as shiny as hers, I use the same products as her.' First of all, a lot of what you see on Instagram isn't real. People only show the best parts of their lives, and publicise snippets that they're proud of and happy about. Which is totally normal, we all do it! And while you're sitting their getting jealous about someone else's abs, or hair... someone else is envious of something you have and they don't. 

Second of all, just because someone looks happy on social media, doesn't mean they're truly happy. It goes with the saying 'everyone's fighting a battle that you don't know about.' We have to be careful not to judge people because of how they're perceived on social media. Everyone is just trying to do the same thing as you. Live their life, on their terms. So let them! 

On that note, life is not a race. And you're not going to get anywhere by comparing yourself to others whether it be your body image, a job, how much money you have, or someone else's relationship status. Change your tune from jealousy or envy, to love! Whenever you show or give love, you're going to get it back. They're living their life, you're living yours. We are all on different paths, and there is no wrong or right path! 

If you feel good right now about where you are in life, then YAY YOU! Keep going, and remember to help people on the way. If you're not feeling good about where you are right now... maybe you hate your job, or you're in a toxic relationship, be brave and make the change. Start by meditating and asking for guidance. Quiet your mind and listen to your instincts. I know the saying 'listen to you heart' sounds like an old Lizzy McGuire song, but listening to yourself really does work. Deep down, we know exactly what we need and when we need it. No one knows ourselves better than we do, so if you have an instinct that something isn't right, it isn't. 

Don't even give a thought about what people might think if you do want to go through a change. If people are judging you, then they aren't happy with their own lives, and you don't need them in your life. You will attract the right people into your life once you're living true to yourself. Once you're 100% about who you are and what you should be doing, abundance will literally flow into your life. It's so exciting that we have the power to do this, you just have to trust yourself, and trust the Universe. (Or whatever higher power you believe in.) 

IT'S YOUR LIFE! Do whatever the hell you want and whatever the hell makes you happy! And if this starts to work for you, inspire others to do the same. Helping people feels good. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

ME, MYSELF AND I

Beyonce reference... obviously! 

So let's talk about ourselves.

You are you for the rest of your life. You have been given this body, and this soul and you are to do with it whatever you like. So why not do good? Why not make the most of your life and do exactly what you desire?

To do good in this life, we must feel good within ourselves first. Sometimes we have to treat ourselves as first priority. It's not selfish, it's just what we need to do in order to be the best version of ourselves. 

People benefit from people, and we bounce of each others energies. Choosing where to focus your energy is important. You might not realise, but the smallest negative thought can steal a good amount of energy away from you. (Positive thoughts have a higher vibration than negative thoughts which is great! But make an effort not to give those negative thoughts the time of day.) Choose to use your energy doing and visualising the things you desire in life. 

Now, YOU! What do you want to do in life? Are you doing it now? Do you want to do more? Are you happy where you are? Do you have dreams and aspirations that haven't yet come to fruition? Here is an excerpt from a book called the 'Manifestation Miracle.' This might give you some motivation to make sure that you do everything you desire in this life. 

"An Australian hospice care nurse called Bronnie Ware, recently conducted a study of terminally ill patients who were in the final few weeks of life. In her study, Ware asked these patients whether they had any regrets and whether there was anything they would have done differently. Here’s what most people said:

“I wish I’d had the courage to live a life that was true to myself, not the life that others expected of me.”

I find this so sad. Imagine thinking that on your death bed? That you didn't live life on your own terms because of what others expected of you. Well I'm here to tell you that your life is your life and no one else's! Of course you're going to have people disagree with what you're doing with life. That will happen no matter what you do because we all have different views, values and opinions. 

In this day and age, I have heard and witnessed people not doing exactly what they desire, not because of what people expect of them, but because of what others may think about them. WHO CARES! It's time to let go, otherwise you will have so many regrets, just like these elderly people who were interviewed. 

When you're feeling a little lost in life I highly recommend reading some self help books, or the Manifestation Miracle by Heather Mathews. Mediation can also help. Quieting your mind and asking yourself what you truly desire can clear your mind and open you up to the answers you've been looking for.

Before you're ready to help other people, you need to focus on you. Figure out exactly what you want, and learn to master your thoughts and energy. Once you have, it will come naturally to help others on a spiritual path. Your energy will automatically give off positive vibes and people will be attracted to the energy you're giving off!

I hope you enjoyed today's blog!
