Don't Stop Believing - Positive Energy Attracts Good Things

The Power of Believing

It is very interesting to see and analyse things that happen to us. As I mentioned on my article "Self Motivation. How to be Strong and Enjoy Life" it is up to each one of us to analyze the signs and to see the world. It is easy to make a good thing look bad or a bad thing to look good.

Today I thought I would tell you about an experience I had a couple of years ago regarding with believing and its power.

I used to play in a project where the main name was an actress very well known in Portugal. She was always telling me about how strong the energy we have reflects in our life. It was really interesting. I might write more about this in the future.

One evening we were rehearsing in her house and after rehearsing me and the other musicians were suppose to go back to the Hotel where we were staying. This was right in the middle of Lisbon. Just the thought of having to park each of our three cars next to the Hotel was painful. But we couldn't walk from her house to the Hotel so we had to take the cars and then go back.

I mentioned to her at the end of rehearsal: "Now I have to find a place to park the car next to the Hotel, that might take ages". Her answer was: "If you think like that you are sending negative thoughts out and that way you won't find a place. Why don't you just honestly believe that there will be a place right next to the Hotel when you arrive?"

Usually people just ignores this kind of ideas and laughs. But that night I turned to her and said: "You know what? I WILL have a place when I arrive. It will be really easy." For some reason I did mean what I said...I really believed I would find an easy place to park the car. The other two guys smiled. (thinking that there was no chance, they know how busy it is in there)
On our way to the Hotel I was the second car. One colleague of mine was in the front and another behind my car. For an instance I though; "If there would be a car space in front of the hotel he will take it". But straight away I thought that it wouldn't happen, there would be a place for me in there. I didn't know how...but I believed I would.

Just going up the main road and having to turn right to a small street where the Hotel was, I was surprised to see my colleague on the front car keep going in front and not turning to the Hotel. He missed the turn. I though; "That is it, he forgot to turn and there will be one spot for my car in front of the Hotel".

The moment arrived, I just got in front of the Hotel, I was amazed to find that there really was a place right in front of the door for one car, my car. A place that my colleague (the one that didn't believe) didn't get because he forgot to turn into the Hotel street. There I was, easily parking in front of the Hotel, while my other two colleagues had to go around a couple of times and walk back to the Hotel in the rain. I was amazed on how powerful the positive energy can be.

This is a little insignificant example that to me proved that it is worth believing and being positive about things. I always use this approach for everything in life...I can't complain at all...I don't always get a spot in front of the place I want but I'm happy with my life.
I really hope this article helps you see life in a positive way and be happy.

Is this something like the Law of Attraction? I'm very interested in this as it always seems like the more I want something, the more I attract it.

Dear naD,

Thanks for your comment. Thinking about an immortal life is not a very positive way of seeing things. I don´t think about living forever but about being happy while I´m alive.

It is certain that we don´t last forever but it is up to us to decide how we want to live our time.

Enjoy life

Nice hub mglamorgan. I think this kind of believing power is somehow tied to your heart also, even before it comes out of your mouth. If you can really believe its OK for you to have what you are standing for, then you will get it.

I think some try to operate like this but they are only parrot talking, there is no connection to the heart, so they fail and quit. I believe God loves to show favor if someone would just reach in and believe in good things.

The scripture about believing in your heart and confessing with your mouth, you shall be saved is tied to our whole makeup and existence. Rom 10:9 In other words, it works on every level of our life, kinda like a 'love law'. But beware it also works in the negative. Sometimes its scary, but we really have dominion to stewart.

Dear Tony,

Thanks a lot for your comment. There is a lot of true in what you say. I hope many people can read that and live life in a more pleasant way. Sometimes life can be really hard on us, but we have to be strong and believe that better things are on our way. It is very important that we can appreciate the good things that we have, for as little as they might be.

If one person reads my article and your comment and manages to be more positive our time here was worth it.

Thank you very much.

It is nice to see that the power of positive thinking is working for you. I used to be an optimist and a very positive person. A long string of bad luck has changed my personality and I am trying really hard to get my positivity back. Reading hubs like yours helps me remember that it once worked for me (to think positively), and that I need to get there again.

Dear TeamHappiness. Glad to know you enjoyed my article.

I'm sorry to know that you had bad luck and that it brought you down. There are highs and lows in life. We have to appreciate the highs and try to not give much attention to the lows. Positive energy alone is not going to make everything be great, but it will help you in the way you see things. If you have good news and bad news on the same day do not spend the time thinking about the bad news, try to concentrate on the good ones, this might not solve the problems but will make you an happier person during your lifetime. Good Luck for the future, it will be great.

Hi Venuse,

Love the live to live 5 years ago

Yes I like it. But the life has different problems and different people who have or deal with these kinds of obstacles. Can you tell me how can I solve certain problem, spcialy if your opponent smarter than you.

mglamorgan 5 years ago from Born in Portugal/Living in UK Author

Yes, life has different problems and I have my own as well, everybody has problems. I don't have the solution to the end of problems, I just want to motivate people to not give to much value to them. I believe it is more important to spend time valuing the good things we have. I'm so happy I can do simple things that unfortunately not everyone can. I know how valuable my eyes are, my legs are...I give thanks everyday for being so fortunate. Unfortunately some problems are really big and there is not much we can do about them apart from learning to live with them. Still, we can try to find other positive things and value them. It is all about how much you let the problem bring you down. Good luck with your problem, but don't forget that you have much more good things going on with your life, don't wast it by concentrating on your problem.

Very inspiring Hub.Thanks for sharing. Most of us like to think positive always but when something tragic happens one tends to think negative first. Saying that out of my personal experience

mglamorgan 4 years ago from Born in Portugal/Living in UK Author

Dear snigdha.s, you are very right when you say that when something tragic happens one tends to think negative first, something would be really wrong with you if not. My article is not intended to say that when something tragic happens you should be smiling and happy, I wouldn't. What I want people to have in mind is that there is always ways to get back up, it might take some time but the person that can help us the most is ourselves. I had many downs in my life and am sure unfortunately some more are to come, but I'm not going to be living thinking about them as that would just make me depressed, I live thinking about the good things and when the problems come I try to sort them out one by one. Sometimes we need a couple of days, weeks or even months to start smiling again and start looking up to life, but we have to have in our mind that it is the way to go, don't let yourself stay down for something that happened, give it some time and then put in your mind that it is gone I now have to get my life together and be happy again. Believe me, it is possible. Good Luck

& there we have it, you have just experienced a valuable lesson of life.

They say we are what we think, sometimes though, when it don't work out the way we want, some give up, instead of, brushing it all aside & continuing to practice positive believing then, all of a sudden, your thoughts manifest such as yours did.

When such positive occurances take place just like manifesting your parking space what you must then do is, practice in/taking mental notes of, whilst relishing in that idea (that you created your wish/idea/positive thought) what tends to happen then is, your notion coupled with your thoughts of positivity, creates more of the same thus, you are onto a cycle of good fortune thinking you can obtain all you ever wanted.

Carefully though, it is quite normal that if your wish didn't appear as you wanted, you will start counter acting your positivity with negativity therefore, you will be back to thinking (mostly) into negative thoughts such as, lack, or not believing.

Great hub, thanks for sharing

Thanks for your great comment Dale. Sorry for the delay in accepting it but have not been in front of the computer for a few days.

You comment is correct, it is very easy to lose the motivation and that is why articles like this can be useful, they can give people that motivation they lost and make them believe that good things do happen.
