Your attitude reflects what you believe. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he,” said the mystical teacher, Christ. So what do you believe to be true about yourself? Is it founded from the perception of others opinions of you, are you basing it on what television says is normal. Or does your belief in yourself come from seeing you as you really are, an inner understanding of your true life and being, based on the reality of selfhood which is the power, wisdom and presence of God?
Every day as you go through life, the attitude that you have within is stimulating responses outwardly and inwardly. You know the old saying “Like attracts Like” or “That which is liken to itself is attracted.” The outer responses are the responses of others towards you, be it positive or negative. The inner responses are coming from the unconscious mind that contains corresponding thought patterns in the subconscious, be them positive or negative. What are your thoughts attracting to you?
Realize that you damage yourself psychologically, psychically and spiritually if your attitude is not positive. You damage yourself by accepting failure thoughts that become part of your subconscious mind and form failure thought patterns, which will not relieve the present situation but only compound it and lead to further difficulties in the future.
To bring the responses one wishes to have in order to experience a better life, your daily attitude should be positive. For a positive attitude knows that there are certain spiritual laws at work to clear up any negative condition. A positive attitude may have a momentary reaction to some negative condition or experience but almost immediately begins to recoil by placing the mind on the power and presence of the Universal-Mind within, which of course know that “all is well.”
How do you maintain a positive attitude? Through prayer, meditation and affirmations. Daily affirming something like “I accept that the so-called difficulties in my life are but a transitional stage leading to greater good in my life.” I also like to use the energy of words to lift my vibration. Words like; certain, capable, commanding, present, graciousness, beauty, ease, well being and happy are higher in vibration thus lifting your mood, so try using one word daily through-out your routine and watch what happens as you feel happier, more positive, and before you know it, you’ll begin to see yourself as you truly are in your natural state of wellbeing!
