Keeping Your Positive Energy

Today I was feeling a little bit down after a couple of negative energy assaults from people and certain circumstances in my life but understanding that I am 100% responsible for my life I quickly changed my attitude and I am back on top.  The article below written by Jeff Cohen has some good tips on how to keep yourself positive whenever you feel the effects of negativity. 

How To Keep Your Positive Energy
by Jeff Cohen

In this universe, like energy attracts like energy. So positive energy attracts positive people, events and circumstances.
So what do you do if you are not feeling so positive? Do you feel sad, angry, annoyed, or simply drained? You certainly do not want to stay that way if you want to attract positive things to your life.
Follow these tips to turn that negative energy into positive energy:
  • Acknowledge your negative feeling. Yes, acknowledge that you are feeling it. Do not deny or suppress it – simply allow yourself to feel it. By acknowledging it, it will be easier for you to eliminate that feeling. However, do not dwell or wallow in that feeling. Simply recognize it.
  • Find something to be grateful for. No matter how bad your day went, something must have happened that you are thankful for, no matter how small. It might be running into a friend, getting a good lunch, or something else.
  • Think about someone or something you love. Think about a loved one smiling at you. Think about a happy moment you spent together.
  • Read a joke or listen to upbeat music. This is especially effective if you are simply feeling tired or annoyed. A good joke or happy music can quickly shift your energy to positive.
  • Meditate. Take a break. Close your eyes, sit in a relaxed position, and breathe deeply. Imagine a beam of light shining through the center of your body. Feel that light spreading through and warming your body. You can do variations of this meditation, or do whatever relaxing meditation you are comfortable with.
  • Talk to positive people. Their positive energy can give you a quick pick-me-up. Positive energy is usually stronger than negative energy so their positive energy will most likely “infect” you!

Follow these tips and feel that positive energy flowing through you.
