Here’s the truth – being positive is more than thinking positive thoughts. Being positive is all about the energetic charge that radiates from you. To just think positively is only part of it. To feel positive emotion is the rest.
You’ve heard things like this a million times…
Positivity is the key to success and happiness.
Your outlook determines your outcome.
Your life is 10% what happens and 90% how you react.
When you raise your vibration, you raise the vibration of the world.
Stay positive and anything is possible.
Your NOW is all that matters.
And on and on and on…
And the thing is, it’s true. BUT, if you are anything like I was, hearing that it is true isn’t the same and knowing that it is true. And that best thing I can do is help you KNOW it with every cell of your being. Because when you KNOW it that deeply, making the choice to be negative becomes very difficult and your mission becomes always raising your vibration.
Let me start by telling you why positive thoughts and feelings REALLY matter to your happiness, success and fulfilment…
We see what is going on differently when we process through a positive filter.
We attach different meaning to what is going on when we process through a positive filter.
We make different decisions when we process through a positive filter.
Keep in mind, a positive filter is more than just positive thoughts. A positive filter includes positive emotion AND positive expectation. There is also a certain amount of letting go that comes with a positive filter, because there is the expectation that things will work out for the best, there is less attachment to HOW we will force them to work out.
There is an essential element to having a positive filter – you must be rooted in the NOW. ‘Now’ is where you tap into your source of infinite creation. ‘Now’ is our point of power and choice.
Here’s the proof…
I talk about proof all the time, so it’s time to give you proof that a positive filter REALLY does matter.
The most powerful kind of proof is the kind you provide yourself – so I have 2 scenarios that are going to help you do just that by using your own history. Answer these questions and you will have all the proof you need…
Think of a time when you were clearly processing through a negative filter. What were you like? Did you see most things that were happening with a negative take on them? Did you attach negative meaning to most everything that was happening? What kind of decisions did you make? Were your decisions based in fear, doubt or worry? Did things seem to only get worse or stay the same no matter what you did? Did you have a sense that ‘nothing was going your way?’
Think of a time when you were clearly processing through a positive filter. What were you like? Did you see most things that were happening with a positive take on them? Did you attach positive meaning to most everything that was happening? What kind of decisions did you make? Were your decisions based in confidence, faith and power? Did things seem to just keep getting better? Did you have a sense that ‘everything was going your way’?
When you look at both of these times from your past and answer the questions I just gave you, it becomes very clear why a positive filter (positive thoughts, feelings, expectation) is ESSENTIAL. The first step to shifting to a positive filter is to get firmly rooted in the ‘Now’ – the second step is to start looking for positive proof.
You can shift your filter to positive in every single moment – you REALLY have that power. And once you completely understand why raising your vibration is the first and most important element in manifesting anything and everything you desire, then you will find a new commitment within yourself to always raise your vibration – higher and higher – always – and when you do, you will change your life and you will change the world!
