This week we have seven activities to help us be more positive in turn, helping us to see just how much light and power we have in our lives.
Day 1: Just for today, refrain from any impulse of negative self-talk. Today, you’ll notice how much you criticize, blame, or ridicule yourself. It’s human to be a little too hard on ourselves, so make today the day you stop doing it to yourself. Talk yourself up or do something positive instead of creating negative thoughts or feelings – this is the power you have in your life. When you decide to make a thought, feeling, or situation positive when it could be negative, you literally transmute the energies involved into positivity. Notice how much control you have over how you feel, how often you change your energy, and the ways you build yourself up throughout the day.
Day 2: Just for today, laugh! Watch a funny movie, be silly, etc. – just don’t take life so seriously. Life was never meant to be lived strictly or sternly; it’s meant to bring joy, happiness, light, fun! The thoughts that say “I don’t have time for…,” or “I’ll get off track if…” are just your current perspective and not necessarily reality. You can observe life from a detached perspective and allow yourself some feel-good time which will always refresh and re-energize you. Switch up your perspective, give yourself a break, and let yourself laugh!
Day 3: Just for today, brush off whatever happens to you today. Yep – even comments from the peanut gallery and the guy who doesn’t let you merge into traffic. Imagine a mirrored ball surrounding you all day and anything that happens or is said to you bounces right off the mirrored surface. Stay above any obstacle today and keep your head high. You’re creating a more positive life and by today it’s starting to get a little easier – you can do it! Bonus: at the end of the day, take a bath or shower and use some Kosher Salt. It’s super cleansing on all energetic levels, especially when used with water, so it’ll rinse the day off and restore you back to you.
Day 4: Just for today, treat yourself. Listen to soothing music, take a bath, sit in the sun, take a hike, etc. Today you’re going to do what you want to do – even if it’s just for half an hour. Really show up for yourself to provide some comfort and positivity in your life today. Pretend like you’re on a mini-vacation and indulge in whatever you “don’t have time for” – you deserve it! When you’re basking in the positive moment, let yourself truly feel all of the goodness it can offer you.
Day 5: Just for today, give prayer a shot. You don’t have to be religious and you don’t even have to call it a prayer. Open yourself and express to the Universe how you’d like help to have more positivity in your life. Imagine what you’d like your life to be like and say, “I need help to do this.” Chances are there will be a being of light listening and will send you what you need. The important thing is that we cannot be helped unless we ask, so ask away. Let there never be an end to you asking for assistance and positivity.
Day 6: Just for today, decide to be happy now. Stop the worrying in its tracks by putting your foot down and saying, “You know what, I don’t want to worry anymore. I want to be happy, so I’m going to be happy.” All you have to change your life is the present moment and today is the perfect day to change your life into a more positive and happy place to be. When you decide to be happy now, you’re signaling the Universe that you’re only allowing goodness in your life and you’ll begin to attract goodness like you’ve never imagined. How can it get better than that?
Day 7: Just for today, have faith in yourself and in the Universe. Push off the sides of the river and know the flow will take you exactly where you need to be. It’s hard to not be positive when deep down you just know that you’re perfectly okay in every situation. When that faith is stronger than any fear, doubt, or worry you may have, the lights turn on and your energy raises to a more positive vibe. Wholeheartedly trust that your life is and will be divinely perfect and it will be.
