Whispers in the Wind: Making Positive Energy a Real Part of Your Life

After the Storm, Beauty often Reigns...

Source

Take time each day for YOU. Just for you...steal away for a little bit to shed the stress of the day and add some positive energy to your plate instead of another stressor. Go for a walk, play the piano, dance in the kitchen, whatever..make it work for you.

When she entered a room, a golden aura surrounded her. Into our presence an abundance of positive energy unfurled which exuded calm and assurance that all would be well. Had an Angel come into our midst?


The magnetism of her being caused anyone who got to know her to be still and feel the moment that being with her created.

She was totally engulfed in positive energy...it emanated from her each time she was near.

She was just good, kind, thoughtful, gentle. And she seemed to know what you needed better than even you knew.

The lesson I learned from meeting this extraordinary person was how powerful positive energy can be. It can breathe that new life into our souls and minds when we have crashed to the lowest levels.


Take Time to Get Lost in Music that is Good for Your Soul

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

— Dr. Wayne Dyer

Asking for Positives

Throughout the years when a family member or me has had to be hospitalized for surgery we have requested:

That only positive energy, positive talk be said in the surgical arena.

That a prayer be said before the surgery and we too prayed for the surgeons and all who were assisting as well.

Likewise, I use positive energy to help pain to subside such as when I have a migraine and have encouraged others to do the same. I focus the energy on the area where the pain is and address the pain. I know that sounds like hokey. But it works. The cells in that area get the message. Perhaps it is because I am calm and totally relaxed...I never question the reason.


Unable to Feel

When lost in the depths of despair some thirty five years ago, sucked into a whilrlwind of desolation and darkness, feeling no joy from anything not even my precious daughter that I love so was horrifying and beyond my mind's capacity to understand. How could I not feel anything for anyone or anything?

I was paralyzed emotionally I could go through the motions of living but there was not one shred of positive life force running through my veins that I could detect. I could not feel God any longer. That was probably one of my scariest moments. When I could no longer feel His presence. I know now He was there but I could not find Him in the cave I had fallen into...scared and alone, although I was not really alone, my life was a void.

To describe how I felt leaves me shaken and abysmal

After reaching this low point, there was nowhere to go except to end my life or to find that still small voice, that shred of positive life force that was still within me, and crawl out of that haunting horrid place in which I found myself.

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things.

— Demi Lovato

Finding the Positive

To point to the place or time when and where I found the positive energy that plays such a pivotal role in my life is not something I can do. I can only say that I found it once again and it carries me along.

Positive energy for me manifests itself to me through my own thoughts and through the thoughts and actions of others. And I have found a number of ways to bring that energy into my life.

Some portion of every day, probably much more even than I am aware, is spent focusing on positive energy..positive outlook, positive results.

My life is just like the life of anyone else. Stuff comes. Unpleasant, unwanted, even ghastly sutff comes. And then a choice comes.

Spiral down into the darkness, become enveloped in the chaos, the negative or choose to find a positive course of action, a way to turn circumstances around to make whatever it is lose its negative power and be replaced with positive energy, the life force that keeps me centered and focused.

Learn to let go and to embrace the possibilities

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today? ~Mary Manin Morrissey




Learning to Move ON

Did I just say that we all have stuff that comes...unwanted unwelcome ghastly even ????

It does. It seems to be part of the ebb and flow of life. And life's journey is about making choices. It just is.

We can choose to wallow in the injustice of it all, scream and wail, cuss and throw things, sob and find fault with someone or something that caused this. We can. That would be one way to deal with it. And, yes, there was a time when I am certain I did at least some of those things.

And to no avail. The worst part was the crying because it always gave me red eyes and a huge headache. So I was worse off in the long run than before my episode ensued.

The obvious other choice is to take the words by Mary Morrissey in her quote and embrace the possibilities. I guess it amounts to letting go of the weight of the baggage that makes us unable to move forward.

Get over it. Move on. Let the past, be just that...it is done. You can stay wounded by something that will drag you down endlessly or you can choose to move forward, unshackled, to a new better life for yourself.

Taking Time to Immerse Ourselves in Nature

Where are YOU?

Before you can really embrace the positives, you must assess where you are. If you are in the pits, the lowest point, the "I can't do this any more' place, then you need help. You need someone who can help you find your way back. For each of us that is a different person and a different way.

Some of us think we can handle it on our own. We sure as hell don't want anyone telling us what to do or how to 'make it better.'

We may say: "My life is in the toilet and that's that."

The danger is to get lost in a maze, a haze of drugs,or to find yourself at the bottom of a bottle, drowning now by that new hold on your life.

It is okay to think you can handle it on your own as long as you are willing to let someone intervene on your behalf if you obviously cannot. Allow that person then to help you find the best course of action for you.

Often when you have reached your lowest low your judgment is clouded and decision making ability sucks. Yep, it just sucks. So having a trusted friend or family member there to catch you when you fall is a good thing.You may kicking and screaming as they begin to help but it will be life changing if you give yourself over to overcoming your demons. (Spoken from experience.)

You might want to agree on the person of choice at some point in conversation with them when everything is just dandy and no sign of impending doom awaits. It sometimes just creeps up so slowly that you are unable to recognize it is happening and then, wham!!!, you are hit with it. That is when you may need help. Discuss with your friend what kind of help you would consider before something ever happens.

And the good news is, it may never happen to you.

"Where does positive energy fit into all of this talk about me being 'lost'?" you may ask.

Positives to Say Each Day as You Rise from Sleep

  • Thank you for a new day.
  • I am a good person.
  • Yesterday is over and done.
  • I am who I am.
  • What others think does not define me.
  • I will make at least one other person feel valued today.
  • I will be my best me today.
  • I will be giving and loving.
  • I am excited to begin this new day.
  • So many opportunities await me today.
  • How blessed I am to have wonderful people in my life!!!

How Positive Energy Fits...

It is like this

The answer to most questions about our lives is positive thinking which yields positive energy. I am going out on a limb here by saying that. I know there are many who would challenge that statement...and that is okay. We all have our own take on the world.

We all have real life issues: illness, mortgages, car payments, uitility payments, food and clothing expenses, child care and on and on. It is difficult to think positively when there are more bills coming in than there is money to cover it all. What is almost equally as frustrating is to work hard, even after retirement, and still have just enough to cover expenses rather than enough to travel the world as you had once hoped

So how can anyone think positive thoughts when all of this is weighing on our shoulders?

Make Lists

That is right.

Create two columns on Word or whatever you use, or, grab a sheet of paper and : Make a list of ALL that you have to be thankful and at the top of that list put a plus sign or write POSITIVES.

And we know that column two will be the list of NEGATIVES.

Try to be as candid as you can in both columns. No one ever has to see this but you.

Turn over the page or go to a new page on your computer and begin to devise a plan as to how to turn around the NEGATIVES.

This will be an ongoing process and do not be overzealous so that you set yourself up for defeat.

Often one of our biggest issues is spending more than we should and then facing the consequences of such spending.

If money is your biggie in the negative column, take a close look at all of your spending....dining out, shopping, car washes, coffee at your favorite coffee spot. You know. All of the expenses that can eat away at a well planned budget.

Addressing spending could be one way to move money issues into a positive column one area of spending at a time.

Money may not be what consumes your negative column. It may be personal relationships or any one of a million other things. But address it in the same way. Write down what you perceive to be the problems and then work out a way to solve them It is not simple.

Sometimes the solutions we need are not the ones we want. O, how well I know that.

Over the past four years, I have had to make decisions that were not ones I wanted to make at all. Out of necessity, I had to make them And now that I am comfortable with the way things are I have moved those changes that occurred into the positive column because they have turned out well.

Do I have more than enough money to spend? No, but I have enough to manage and then some. So that in my mind is a definite plus.

Do I have a whole new set of friends and interactions with others? I do and that definitely makes the pluses spin around me.

And I still have my tried and true friends but just not as close geographically so I do not get to see them as often.

Many other unexpected positives come out of change that comes because it must...not because we want it to at the time.

Pollyanna

There have been many times in my lifetime that I have described myself as Pollyanna. And that happened after I crashed and burned some 30+ years ago.

I still make be a little bit of a Pollyanna...I tend to see the glass half full and rose-colored glasses are often found in my space. But I am also a realist.

I know that stuff will come that will go into the negative column as I continue my journey.

If it stays there, shame on me. I am empowered by a sense that I can direct positive energy in my life to work for the good to occur. It really is about choosing to do so.

Hi Peggy For me, choosing positive energy has been a life saver.

And I am so glad that I have learned to embrace the upside to things. That does not mean that I do not feel sadness or sorrow but it does mean that I am equipped to filter through the feelings, process it, and try to make some sense of it.

This is such an uplifting post Patricia! Few people in life will escape trials and tribulations of one sort or another and being able not to get mired down into it but look ahead with hope in one's heart and mind truly helps. Those who are truly clinically depressed need professional help oftentimes. Many up votes and will spread this around by sharing! Keep those angels around you and your loved ones.

Oh, I've been there, bought the T-shirt. You describe this stage of depression perfectly and your advice is priceless. I have forced myself way back in 2002/3 to replace each and every negative thought with two positive thoughts. It took me two years to change my negative pattern of thoughts. We can be our own angels by taking antidepressants, and exercising the body and mind in order to activate the release of natural feeling good chemicals. I will never-ever allow myself again to fall into the depths of negative energy.

Excellent hub, pstraubie!

Beautiful, powerful and insightful reflections you have shared here, dear Patricia! It is so important to surround ourselves with positive people in our lives as it is so easy to get caught up in the negative when around negative people.

So true, that our thoughts play a major role in our overall health and wellbeing. It is important that we are mindful of the thoughts we are thinking. I know when I realize I am being negative, I think about what I have been thinking on for the past hour, and sure enough, time to change my thoughts!

Happy New Year, peace, blessings and hugs to you and yours, sweet friend.

Really enjoyed this. You put it so well and a really good read. Just right for a New Year's message. As a family we've been through a lot of this in the last few years and the only thing I would add is that the blessings can come from unexpected sources, but they can only come when you work at putting the stuff that the Good Lord (and I use that title because I really believe he is GOOD) shows you into action.

You're in our prayers.

Great inspiring hub! I definitely believe that like breeds like. It has been my experience that sometimes it takes a little while to turn things around with positive thinking, but it does happen. On a larger scale, I like to see people join together and bring down the healing energies to the whole planet. I think we can benefit individually from that.

There is a lot of positive energy flowing through you in your words here, Patricia. Thank you for the transfusion, reading this has caused me to feel better within (and you know what that will do around me).

May angels bless you everyday.

Hello Patricia, this is an excellent article. It can be so difficult, at times, to be positive and it is especially difficult if others around you are negative. I'm happy that you were able to find your positive flow again. More often than not, putting it down on paper can make a huge difference and shift in the mindset and energy flow. The power of our thoughts coupled with the mere act of writing.

Take care and have Happy and Creative New Year!

This is a wonderful hub about positive thinking Patricia. Phyllis Doyle alerted me to your current sad situation. I am praying for you. I have also written a hub called "Be Positive-Just Do It!" If you feel up to it you may like to take a look, hopefully it may be of some help. Blessings and prayers.

Thank you, Patricia, for writing this hub. I have been working with people from different backgrounds who have been lost, lonely and afraid of life. I tell them much of what you have said in this hub and to see the changes come over them is a wonderful thing. I work with their spirituality and help them to find the path in life that works for them - so, I know that your positive energy way of life is a great healer. Thanks and many blessings to you and yours.

Being positive and thankful go hand in hand; so I think if we just start thanking God for the good we have to be positive. God bless and keep you.

This is beautifully written, PS, with a powerful message. If you are called Pollyanna then my first reaction is that we need many more like you. Positivity rules in my world. Negativity needs to move on to another place for I have no need for it.

Blessings and hugs, with a hearty Happy New Year, coming your way.
