REWIREING YOUR MIND FOR POSITIVITY
Today I want to focus on shifting brain’s neurological patterns from negative to positive. Concentrating on negativity is like an addiction. Just like alcohol and drugs, once negativity becomes part of everyday life, the brain create neurological patterns to look for more and more of it. Most people go about their lives by default. Consequently because they are bombarded by negative circumstances where most people only concentrate on negativity, and because bad news gets the attention of the media, most of their lives they are faced with negative inputs, and that becomes the main thought process that they go to during stressful times. Just like any addiction this process needs to be changed by replacing it with something productive. To forget the bad habit is to get something for it. One really good way to do this is with gratitude.
In the past blog posts I have mentioned gratitude as a way to supercharge your desires and their communication to the Law of Attraction. But today I want to specifically concentrate on a technique that will not only bring about a supercharged power to your visualization, but also slowly and methodically change the brain pattern to concentrate more on positivity rather than negativity.
Let’s start. The technique is simple but it does take some discipline. Every morning when you wake up you are going to write down 5-10 things that you are grateful for. It is nice to get a journal to dedicate to this task. It can be a small notebook, it can be on your computer, PDA, or smart phone. The important thing is that it needs to be with you every morning and preferably during the day. Because as you go through the day I want you to start focusing on things that you can be grateful for and jot them down. Alternately you can also make a list before you go to sleep about all the things that you are grateful for that happened during the day. This task should not be laborious. That is why I am starting you off with 5-10 things. As you get more practice you may want to go ahead and increase the number of things you are grateful for. At first this may be difficult. Please don’t try to take a short cut in this by doing this in your head. You will need to write this down for at least 30 days before trying it just by thinking about it. By the 30th day you may want to continue writing because of the great results you will see. Start with little and obvious things. Perhaps start with being grateful for your health, the home you live in, for having food in the refrigerator, for having clean water, and friends. Start slowly and you will notice that more and more things will come to you that you can be grateful for. No matter how little or insignificant you think they are jot them down in your journal. You want to get into the habit of looking for the positive things no matter what your circumstance is right now.
The purpose of this exercise obviously is not to get a long list going. The purpose of this exercise is to actually rewire your neurological pathways in your brain that have been exposed to negativity throughout your life and change those patterns so they can concentrate on the beauty and the positive aspects of your life that is your real reality. You have a choice in what you put your attention on and this exercise, if you do it long enough will bring amazing experiences to your life.
Lastly what you want to keep in mind is that as you are writing your lists in the morning and at night or throughout the day take a moment to feel the gratitude. Remember that working with the Law of Attraction is all about the feelings and not just the words. So after each thing that you think about which you are grateful for take a moment to feel the feeling of and the joy of being grateful. To truly appreciate those things.
As always best wishes for your success, and feel free to share and pass this along.
