Let me preface this article by clarifying that no, I am not trying to convince you that this will work, and no I am not telling you to implement this in your life. I'm simply providing my opinion on a subject, giving a lot of examples from my own experience. This is also more of a reminder to tell you that yes, you are in control, and regardless of the current hardships you might be going through, it will all work itself out. So let's begin.
Has there ever been something that you really wanted (think big, like a dream house you always see in those catalogs or a new job you love) and thought about a lot, kind of forgot about for a short period of time (could be an hour, could be a year), and then it seemed like all of a sudden you got that thing you wanted? Something that's seemed to increase significantly in popularity is the law of attraction. For those who have not heard of it, basically, it follows the principle of "what you are is what you attract."
Basically, if you think negatively the majority of the time, you'll attract negative things into your life. On the contrary, if you think positively, then you'll attract positivity into your life. Yes yes, I understand that this concept may sound strange, crazy even. But it's something that's worked for me. It's the whole "like attracts like" concept.
I stumbled upon a bunch of law of attraction videos at some point in the summer. At first glance, I was somewhat skeptical, until I remembered that this was what my mom had been telling me to implement ever since I was younger. She never gave it a specific name, rather she just stressed the importance of energy and the power of words. The message was the same: focus your energy on what you want, and that's what will come to you.
When I was younger, I disregarded my mom, despite seeing results of this. Since rediscovering it, I actually started to implement and yes, I saw results. (For instance, I unintentionally manifested a text from an old friend although this was something I didn't really want to manifest oops) Most importantly though, I began to feel more in control of my life and helped me gain a sense of confidence that I don't think I had before.
As I mentioned, no I'm not trying to convince you that this works and that you have to implement it into your life. But I think I'm more trying to remind you that in the end, it will be OK. It's your life. You got this.
