DO YOU PRACTICE FEELING GOOD? DO YOU NEED TO?
Good day every one,
I wonder what did the title of this post do for you? Did you find it an unusual question? Is it something that you find out of the box? Or is it as natural as the question “how are you today?”. The idea of this post is to make it the later.
If you are like most people, you pretty much feel the way your surroundings dictate. That is if things are going well you feel good and if things are challenging you may be in not so good of a feeling place. That is going about by default and one of the reasons I set up this blog and wrote the book Road Map to Life is to let as many people as possible know that you can control your life and future. If this is a new concept for you stick with me for a second. Then go to some of the earlier posts and familiarize yourself with the Law of Attraction and how it can help you succeed in the game of life. If you really like this blog go and buy my book as well ;-)
So let’s dive more into the question. If your feelings are dictated by your external environment then you are at the mercy of whatever is happening in your environment. Even if you are aware of the principles of the Law of Attraction, if you have not practiced feeling good, it is very difficult to reach for a good feeling when you are faced with the reality of things not being so good. You heard me correctly when I said PRACTICED FEELING GOOD. Just like visualization feeling good is a skill that can be mastered. Just like any other skill it takes practice. So how do you go about practicing feeling good? Let’s jump right in.
In the beginning you want to try practicing this exercise for no more than about 10-15minutes when you know you will not be disturbed, and at a time when you are in a good mood. This IS NOT THE PLACE WHERE YOU WANT TO FIX SOMETHING THAT IS NOT WORKING. If you bring in the feeling of “fixing” something, your vibration will be of lack and that is not what we are trying to do here. So get comfortable, and start to visualize and think of a calming, fun, place. This can be somewhere you have been before where you experienced good feelings, or it can be a place you want to be, or it can be someplace you are making up. It does not matter as long as it brings feelings of joy and happiness. Imagine what the weather is like in this place. Be specific. What is the temperature; how humid is it? Is it raining, or is it sunny? Is there a breeze or is it calm? Who is there with you? What activities are you engaging in? Is there dialogue going on if someone is there with you? Or are you alone and just enjoying the surroundings? It does not matter if you decide to take someone, but it is imperative that they bring a feeling of joy to you while they are with you. Also remember that this is not set in stone. Today you may go alone and tomorrow you may bring your kids with you.
Once you get into the feeling of joy and happiness and feel your vibration rise it is time to get out. Usually if you stay too long you start to become practical and bring obstacles into the good feeling place. Try to do this once a day. When you are standing in line, or stuck in traffic, or in an elevator. Get in and get out. Concentrate on the good feeling that you get when you go into this special place. When you do this long enough, usually around 27-30 days in a row, you develop a habit of feeling good on command. I like to say do this for 3 months every day but 30 days will work as a starting point.
So why is this so important? When you have this skill developed and can feel good on command, you then have a store of memories and techniques to utilize when you are faced with a challenging situation. You know that when things do come up and your emotional response is something like anger, disappointment, depression, etc. you are feeding the negative energy with those powerful emotions and it is by the Law of Attraction bringing more and more things that will continue to make you feel that way unless you can start to change your feelings. So when fecal matter starts to hit the osculating percolator, you can pick one of the visualizations that you have worked on and practiced to start to feel good a little at a time. If this is not practiced it is very difficult to change that bad feeling on a dime. It is a skill worth practicing and I think once you get good at it, i.e. after 30 days, you will see that it was well worth 10 minutes a day for 30 days to get it done. In fact I think you will like it so much that it will become a part of your daily routine. If after doing this for 30 days you feel otherwise please come and share your experience by commenting on this post. Perhaps we can all learn from each other.
Good luck and enjoy. As always feel free to pass this along to anyone you think can use it.
