It’s that time of the year again… the time we tell ourselves we’ll change our eating habits, make more time for hobbies, family, ourselves etc., and try to be more positive. It lasts all of maybe a month and then we’re back to our old ways. I’m so guilty of this and I’m tired of it! So this year, I’ve decided that I’m changing my approach! I’m speaking my resolutions and intentions into existence. Sounds crazy? Keep reading and this may change your mind!
The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is the belief that if you speak positivity into the world, you will attract positive things. The same goes for negative words attracting negative things. It makes sense. If you think and speak positively, good things tend to happen. Now that’s not to say nothing bad will ever happen, but it improves the way you handle it and can even change the outcome.
From my own experience, when I speak negatively, nothing good really ever comes from that. I don’t know how many times my mom has told me to stop being negative about things and try to be positive. I’m not sure if its “energy,” I tend to think its God, but when I’m positive my mood lifts and happiness and peace comes right after that. I remember a Bible verse growing up that said to think and dwell on whatever is true, noble, lovely, and admirable. I don’t think anything bad has ever come from that.
In short: Speak positively and you will attract positive things.
How Do We Speak Positively?
It seems so simple. Say positive things and that’s it. But when you typically think and speak negatively, it can be really hard to change that mindset. I’ve tried so many times and unfortunately just returned to my old ways of thinking. So to even start the process of speaking positively, I’m saying out loud that I will speak positively! That’s really hard for me to even say. It’s so contrary to my nature. But simply saying that we will be uplifting when we speak conditions a small part of our minds to be aware of anything else that comes out of our mouths. Eventually, saying good things will become second nature.
How Do We Speak our Resolutions into Existence?
Well, this is difficult to answer because you can say that they will happen and you will stick to them, but at the same time you must make a physical effort. I think that daily reminders to yourself that you’re working toward your resolution and still intend to keep it can be a big help. A simple mantra to repeat to yourself such as “I will speak positively” or “I will eat healthy today” can help remind yourself of your intentions and speak them into existence. You cannot take words back, and sometimes that’s for the better!
Good luck with your resolutions! Sticking with them is going to be hard but I’ve already said I’m going to stick with it so my words have intention and it’s too late! No turning back now!
