The one thing that I've been practicing these past few months is being positive. When you start off your day in a positive mindset, nothing but positive can come to you.
What I've learned is that when things don't go your way, there's something to learn from that. The Universe is always conspiring on your behalf, so what may seem like "bad luck" is just a blessing in a disguise. I'm sure many of you already know this, but sometimes we need a reminder every now and then.
The more you look for the positive, that's all you'll begin to see. This has been my experience. If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know that this has been one of the memes of this site.
Just as we've been conditioned to act a certain way or have certain beliefs, it's the same for maintaining a positive attitude at all times. You have to recondition yourself to think positive. To this day I still watch videos filled with positive affirmations. I'm more aware of the words I say in my everyday conversations and I'm learning to tune out any type of negative energy from other people. It's an everyday practice. Just like you practice anything you want to master such as golf or painting, you have to practice being positive.
It certainly helps when you surround yourself with positive people and environments. Recently I spent a few days in Sedona, Arizona where the energy is happy and serene. Sedona is a very spiritual place and the people there are so genuinely nice. It's a must-see! I came home renewed and spiritually uplifted.
My favorite part of the trip was visiting Cathedral Rock, which is home to one of the major vortexes in the world. If you're not familiar with vortexes (or vortices), they are swirling centers of spiritual energy. All the trees in the areas close to the vortex even had twisted trunks and branches!
