We all have certain beliefs, expectations, and patterns of thought about certain subjects that seem natural to us, because we have practiced those thoughts for so long. The number one reason it’s hard to get out of a rut or create change is because we keep thinking the same thoughts about a given subject. Jolt yourself out of an energy rut by forcing your mind to view things from a different, more favorable perspective, and then try to hold that new perspective for as long as possible.
Find the positive in the situation. When you realize you are sitting at home and feeling bored, change that feeling by focusing your attention onto something positive. It could be as simple as being grateful that you have a home to sit in. Or that you have the extra time in your life to feel bored. There is a positive in every single thing, you just have to move your focus onto that positive.
As they say, madness is doing the same thing and expecting different results. If you are wanting something to be different in your life, or just wanting to create some excitement, the change has to start with you first. There are no boring lives, only boring people. So if you want a different result, take a different action, even if it is small one.
If you find yourself with the time to be bored, you are a lucky person. So many people would give everything just to have a moments peace with nothing to do. How we look at our situation will impact how we feel over all.
A lot of times, when people want something or someone in their life to be different, they automatically start from a place of negativity and lackfulness, which undermines the change they are hoping to create. “I hate my job, I wish I had a different one” will continue to bring you more experiences that reinforce that same belief. A simple shift to, “I’m grateful for having a job and am in the process of creating an even better one” can be really impactful. This new statement puts you in a more powerful vibrational place of appreciation and hope rather than desperation. Always act as if what you want is already on its way to you and a part of your life already. What’s showing up in your life isn’t necessarily what you want. You’re simply getting a reflection of what you already believe about yourself and your world. A belief in lack only creates more lack. Creating change from a present place of appreciation and abundance is much more powerful than a feeling of lack.
This is where Affirmations are so important. Stating the things you want in your life as if they are already true. “I AM Happy!”
All of your power is exactly in the Now. The past and future are literally figments of our imagination. Tools for the mind to be able to string experiences together into a linear fashion. The Universe only understands now, now, now. Take advantage of the infinite potential that each moment holds when it is unclouded by regrets from the past and worries about the future. Remember, changing your energy vibration in the current moment is literally shaping your point of attraction for the future. So getting happy now is actually like making an investment in your future.
We cannot change things from the past so we do not need to waste our energy on them. We do not need to waste our energy on what might happen in the future. We need to focus on the here and now and create the beautiful life we have always dreamed of, by stating that we already have all those wonderful things.
Don’t ignore your intuition. 95% of the information we get from a person or situation is non-verbal in nature. Pay attention to how something or someone is making you feel. Your emotions are your guidance system and will never fail you, when you learn to quiet your mind and tune in. Your instinct will steer you in the right direction and help you create positive change if you learn to listen.
Meditation will help you learn to quiet your mind. How to breathe deeply and slowly and relax your entire body. I know my intuition has never been wrong. When I meet someone I quiet myself and just listen to what my gut tells me. If it tells me to stay away from that person, I listen.
