Gratitude is a magnetic force.
Nothing new can come into your life unless you open yourself up to being grateful for what you already have.
Thoughts are things.
We attract into our lives the things we want, and that is based on what we're thinking and feeling. We create our own circumstances by the choices we make in life. And the choices we make are fueled by our thoughts — which means our thoughts are very powerful things.
The "Law Of Attraction."
What we focus on tends to expand. It affects how we feel, and the feelings actually send out a wave into the universe, and anything that's vibrating on a similar level gets attracted into our life: "like attracts like." What are you attracting in your life?
Most people focus on how it is or what's wrong. We talk about our current reality: "I'm in debt. I'm overweight. I'm not happy. I'm sad. Nothing's working..." The more you think about that and focus on that and talk about it, the more you attract that negativity. Instead of wallowing in those negative thoughts, find the positive in the situation. Be grateful: "Count your blessings instead of your problems." Feel positive that you are willing to do something healthy to make your life better. Rejoice in the successes of others, the universe has plenty for everyone.
"Happiness is when what you think, what you say,
and what you do are in harmony."
- Mahatma Gandhi
The famous duck-rabbit optical illusion.
Is it a duck? Is it a rabbit?
PARADIGM: the set of experiences, beliefs and values that affect the way an individual perceives reality and responds to that perception.
Think of a Paradigm Shift as a change from one way of thinking to another. It's a revolution, a transformation, a sort of metamorphosis. It just does not happen, but rather it is driven by agents of change.
Feelings are energy. They are either positive or negative. We have the freedom of choice to change our feelings at any time and become deliberate creators. No one can take that freedom of choice away from us. It is guaranteed! How we use it and what we make of it is up to us.
Everything starts with a thought. Albert Einstein said, "There is no doubt that a single creative thought has the power to change the world."
The awareness of the Law of Attraction is part of the New Paradigm Shift happening right now. A simple process: First, identify what you don't want. Second, identify what you do want. Third, feel what you want and allow it to happen.
"...everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
- Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search For Meaning
