Think of a wonderful thought.
Any happy little thought.
Peter Pan was right. Our minds and bodies are so connected, just shifting your thinking can make a big impact in how your body feels.
Our entire world is composed of different frequencies - energy and matter vibrating to give shape, texture, feeling and meaning to our lives. Dense, heavy feelings or things vibrate at a lower vibration than light ones. For example, a rock has a lower vibration than a flower. Worry has a lower vibration than joy.
You know the feeling you get in your body when you are falling in love? Or how you feel when you get great news? For me, my heart feels like a flower blooming and my fingers and toes buzz like they are filled with bubbles. It feels like my hands could float away if they weren't connected to my body. You may feel a little dizzy. Maybe like you are ... flying.
The molecules in your body respond to the thoughts in your head. That includes the words you speak and especially the things you say to yourself (even if you never speak those words out loud). That is why it is especially important to speak kindly to others AND yourself.
Think these words to yourself:
Now try saying those words out loud.
Do you feel them in your body? Where? How do these words feel when spoken out into the space around you? Do you feel them more when you think or speak them? These words and corresponding concepts have a low vibration. They may feel heavy or create a stuck feeling in your body.
Now try the same exercise with these words:
These words and concepts have a very high vibration. They promote flow and a lightening effect in and around you.
Nobody wants to feel hateful or jealous, but we all find ourselves in these feelings sometimes. An excellent remedy for these heavy experiences, is to focus instead on how you would like to feel.
You have the power to manifest, to bring to life and invite into YOUR life all that you desire. You just have to ask. It's called the law of attraction. Just how a smile can attract happy friends to you, a happy thought can bring more joy into your life. You become a magnetic force for all the wonderful things in the world when you shift your perspective to optimism.
Here's the trick - you have to think of what you DO want. Not what you don't want. The Universe doesn't speak in negatives. Wait, let me try that again. The Universe only speaks in positives. Let's say you are celebrating your birthday, and your aunt always gives you weird socks as a gift. You think, "I hope she doesn't give me more weird socks." What the Universe hears is, "More weird socks." Guess what your aunt is bringing to the party?
Instead, you can think, "I would like something to do with baking for my birthday." You still might get weird socks, but it's possible they will have whisks stitched onto them. Okay, so it isn't an exact science, but it could be a fun experiment. Plus, I would much rather be putting my energy toward what I want in life rather than what I don't want.
Remember the old way of punishing students in grade school where the student was asked to write out what they did wrong one hundred times in order to learn their lesson? "I will not speak in class during the teacher's lesson."
That punishment has a super low vibration because it reinforces again and again what the student did wrong. A higher vibrational response would be to write out: "I will listen during the teacher's lesson." The focus shifts to be on the desired behavior.
What do you want in life? Try writing that sentence again and again.
I want to find more joy in my life.
I want to connect more deeply with the people I love.
I want to inspire millions of people to feel better in their everyday life.
Nothing is impossible. What do YOU want? Write it. Believe it. Be it.
So, if you find yourself using negative self talk or speaking with low-vibe words to another person, you have the power to shift EVERYTHING by choosing high-vibe talk and subbing it in.
Instead of saying, "I can't ever do anything right."
Say, "I'm learning to be kinder to myself and others."
You may initially think, "I hate spaghetti and meatballs."
But you can shift that to, "I look forward to manicotti next time."
These may seem like little things, but they are huge shifts in how you perceive your experiences and the vibe of these statements is way higher vibe than a negative statement. Saying what you won't do or don't want puts a block into your flow. A positive statement opens your energy field back up to the feeling of flow and connectivity.
That's what gets the bubbles fizzing in your fingers and toes. That's when you feel you might float away.
So put your energy toward identifying and manifesting what you DO want to have in your life. How do you want to feel? Think it. Whisper it to yourself. Repeat your hopes and dreams like a mantra as you fall asleep at night. Write it on sticky notes all over your house. Stitch the words on throw pillows. Paint a canvas - how do you want to feel - and make the room in your life for those big, beautiful, high-vibrational feelings to come in and sweep you off your feet. Prepare to take flight powered by the vibration of your thoughts, your words and your own magic.
Let what you do want be your happy thought.
So think of a wonderful thought. Say happy words to yourself and others. Feel your frequency rising - watch your world take flight.
