If you’ve read “How to Allow,” or are very familiar with the Law of Attraction, you know that the most important thing that you can do is to make feeling good your highest priority. When you commit to choosing the best thoughts available to you, you raise your vibration and you change the quality of the things you are attracting into your life.
It’s not always easy, though, to find thoughts that feel better or that provide you some relief when you’re having a reaction to something that’s put you in a state of worry, overwhelm, frustration or even despair. Sometimes the only thing that can provide any relief is to distract yourself from what’s bothering you in any way possible. You can meditate, take a nap, watch a movie, just do anything to distance your thoughts from what’s really troubling you.
When you’re just not feeling as good as you’d like, however, or you just want to feel even better, there are lots of techniques for getting to that place where you feel better, or into your vortex where all of your desires are waiting for you to line up with them. The Abraham-Hicks books provide lots of strategies for getting into your vortex from various emotional states and they’re definitely worth reading and re-reading!
I make it a point to feel as good as I can and to get into my vortex as often as possible. Sometimes it’s really easy and can happen from just thinking about good stuff, having a great interaction with a friend, or hearing a song I love. There are other times, though, when I really want to get into my vortex, really want to feel better, and I can’t seem to help belaboring the thoughts which are worrying me. And, I know that thinking those worrisome thoughts are only going to bring me more to worry about. When I can’t seem to readily find better feeling thoughts and am just too far away from my alignment, I’ve found one thing that’s tried and true for getting into my vortex and getting back on track.
It’s simple, but most of the things that actually work usually are quite simple. The one thing, which nearly always works for me and is the fastest way into my vortex, is to focus on the people I love and who love me. The energy of our vortex is pure love; it’s the vibration of our Source or Infinite Intelligence. So thinking thoughts of pure love can catapult you right in there where you want to be. If you’re a parent, it’s usually especially easy to focus on your children and think about how much you adore them; from there just move on to everyone else in your life that you love and appreciate. The more you do it, the larger your list of people seems to become.
I’m amazed at how the circle has expanded the more often I’ve used that strategy. The first time I tried it, I mostly focused on my kids, my husband, my parents and siblings, my pets. Pets are easy since they always provide that unconditional love and never get mad at you! As I concentrated on the people I love more and more often, more and more people came into focus for me and I realized how much I do appreciate and care about them. It actually became easier to love more and more people, which was an unanticipated benefit!
Just get quiet, close your eyes and think “I love __________, and picture them in a way which gives you that tingle. Then move on from there to the next obvious person and you’ll find that it just gets easier and easier to get that tingling feeling about almost everyone in your life. You’ll likely find yourself expanding the feeling to people you wouldn’t have thought about, but who have been kind to you in some way, or have helped you out.
With this strategy, it just gets easier and easier to get into your vortex where you’re a match to all of your desires; and, when you do this often, you know that your desires are on their way to you.
