Practicing Positivity in your Words, Thoughts and Actions
Positivity ~ is a word that has been overused in our society. Remember when you were young and you’d repeat a word over and over again? The actual word lost all meaning and became ridiculous. It seems to me, Positivity has suffered a similar fate and I’d like to get back to the heart of what it means to be Positive, using a simple 68 second technique.
As with Gratitude, when you toss Positivity around without integrity, you dilute the impact to a state where it has little effectiveness. Have you ever heard a 5 year old apologizing to his sibling at the urging of his mother? “Joey, apologize to your sister and say it like you mean it” “I’m SOOORRRREEEEE”. It’s an exchange of words, emphasis is applied on the right vowel, however Joey’s not fooling anyone, certainly not his sister. If you only say the words and your don’t actually feel them physically, you’ve lost the impact. Your homework for today boys and girls ~ concentrate on those things in your life you feel Positive toward. (it’s easier to expand Positivity when the root strength of the actual emotion is there to start with) Write them down if it helps and work on one Positive thought at a time.
It’s important to relax and not make this feel like work, if you manage once a day, job well done. Of course in time working up to once an hour will change how you experience life. Again, Baby Steps and keep in mind, there are no wrong answers. If the only thing you can find to be positive about today is the fact your dog likes you, go with that. For 68 seconds today try to stay in the realm of pure positivity. Gently move any negative thoughts off to the side, if only for a moment or two. As you inflate the emotion of Positivity you allow yourself to vibrate at a level where you attract more of what you are concentrating on. This is a quick exercise, just over a minute of expanding your Positive thoughts. How this works is: you GET-IN to the Positive feeling, GET Positive and GET-OUT. Quick bursts of Positive Thoughts. You don’t want to spend too much time on this. Reason being is: after a minute, our mind finds negative thoughts and attaches that negative thought to the Positive one, causing us to doubt and negate the Positive feeling.
A thought reaches a combustion point at 17 seconds of pure undiluted focus. It draws another thought to it and it is exponentially more powerful. At the end of another 17 seconds, 34 seconds total, the next thought combusts and evolves to a higher level of energy. Again another 17 seconds to 51 seconds continues the process, and finally, if you can continue a pure thought for 68 seconds on any given subject, it will be on its way to manifestation. The key word is pure, meaning Positive focus, strong energy, no resistance; to not slip into lackful thinking. (Abraham Hicks)
