WELL BEING, EVEN WITH ALL THAT NEGATIVITY?
Hello again Dear Friends,
Much of what I write and speak about deals directly with the pursuit of well being and happiness. So, I ask you, “how ya doin”?
How’s your health, your relationship life, and your finances, and how are these aspects of your life affecting your well being and happiness? If you are like many individuals I speak with, you would probably say that things are “OK”, but you are searching for improvement. I understand just how easy it s to get in this place ‘OK LAND’, but what can we consciously do each day to more permanently regain that smile and internal peace? This month let me give you a few pointers that you may find helpful.
Deliberately turn off the negativity: Where does much of the negativity around us come from? Typically it is from the news media, conversations with friends and family, and our own minds. When we allow ourselves to be flooded with this negative onslaught it is just natural that before long negativity becomes our primary vibration which naturally leads to negative life experiences.
The good news is that we have freedom and we have choices, IF we choose to act. The news media for the most part represents what’s happening to others, so take the step to turn it down or turn it off. Ever go away for a weekend or extended vacation and stop listening to the news for this short time? How did you feel and what did you really miss?
How many of your friends and family members do you converse with regularly who feel it imperative to share all the ills, drama, and negativity in their life? Again, do you have the courage to turn it down or turn it off for the benefit of your own personal well-being?
What do you do about all those negative and fearful thoughts which circulate in your mind? Do you have a plan or a method to change or eliminate them? The power of our minds and thoughts can be overwhelming and powerful, and I have found that only through a regular daily practice of meditation can we come close to mastering and controlling the vibrational energy in this area.
The Perfect Now, a necessity: I regularly speak and write about the importance of being an ‘emotional match’ to what we want in the future. Many individuals I visit with tell me they will be happy and fulfilled WHEN they get what they want; unfortunately this method usually does not work. We must be a match RIGHT NOW emotionally to that which we want. We must consciously work on not letting circumstances dictate our well being, and we do this by trying to create a perfect now which will be an ‘emotional match’ to what we desire in the future. How do we do this? Start with a smile and a sense of appreciation for that which you do have and watch the NOW grow brighter and brighter. As this occurs we become in sync, or a match, to what we desire and the manifestation process moves forward.
Try a little Playfulness: Remember how much we played when we were younger? Sure, maybe we didn’t have to be concerned with paying the bills, or making a relationship work, or physical ailments, but do you remember how PLAYFULNESS felt? Why not play a kind funny practical joke on a friend or roll on floor with your dog? How about a game of catch, a card game or monopoly, or making a snow angel outside?
We are all here participating in the game of life and how much more fun would this game be if we brought some playfulness back.
Regardless of what method we choose, the state of well being is our personal responsibility and it usually requires a bit of effort and practice. Make it a point each day to do something which enhances your personal state of feeling good about yourself and others! This is what I speak and write about and I would enjoy assisting you personally or your organization www.andyfeld.net firstname.lastname@example.org
