How to get unstuck from survival mode.

Sometimes it can seem like all you’re doing is surviving, without making any real progress towards the ideal life that you’ve imagined for yourself. Maybe you’re suffering from anxiety or depression, dealing with health challenges, in a relationship that isn’t serving you, or you’re stuck in a dead-end job. You don’t have to live that way. The life that you’ve dreamt of is possible if you learn to utilize the Law of attraction to manifest your ideal outcomes.

The Law of Attraction states that whatever we focus on, we attract into our lives. When you’re going through tough times, it can be challenging to focus on the positive. However, if you let your current circumstances influence all of your focus, you’ll end up attracting more of the same.

“I realized that I had these two aspects within myself, the positive and the negative. I had to learn how to feed the positive aspect of myself so that it could thrive and become a prominent way of living for me.” – Carolyne Bennett (22:31 – 22:55)

How to let the Law of Attraction work in your favor.

One of the best ways to approach the Law of Attraction is to treat it as an experiment. Instead of putting pressure on yourself, try to focus on something positive to see what happens. Here are some practices and tips to let the Law of Attraction take you from surviving to thriving.

The story about the two wolves

There’s an old story about an old Cherokee teaching his grandkid about the internal conflict we all experience. He compares the fight within him to a battle between two wolves. One of the wolves is full of anger, envy, fear, regret, and the other one is full of joy, peace, love, hope, and tranquility. When his grandson asks him which wolf wins, the Cherokee says it’s whichever one he decides to feed. Similarly, if you want positive results in your life, you have to learn to focus on the positive. Whatever you focus on will thrive.

Practice gratitude

Everyday when you wake up, make it a habit to list a few things you’re grateful for. Then go one step further and think of why you’re thankful for them. It can be as simple as having a comfortable bed to sleep in so that you can wake up refreshed and full of energy. When you dwell on the feeling of gratitude, you’re focusing on the abundance in your life, and you’ll attract more of the same.

Play the “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” game

Originally written by Abraham and Hicks in their book Ask and It Is Given, it is a simple game where you think of something you want from a place of non-attachment. Make sure you’re in a positive and playful mood when you play the game, and make a wish for something you’d like to attract. Then go on with the rest of your day without dwelling on it. Do this frequently, and soon you might be surprised at the things you begin manifesting.

Developing a positive mindset that attracts the life you want requires practice, just like building a strong physical body requires consistent effort at the gym. Practice positive thought patterns regularly till it becomes a habit, and don’t get discouraged if you slip up every now and then. It’s only natural, and it happens to everybody. Just pick right back up and get on with your routines of gratitude, meditation, and dwelling on the outcomes you desire. Don’t worry about how everything will work out. Just focus on the next step, and have faith that the rest will reveal itself.
