A Little 'Perky' Can Go a Long Way

Have you heard the old expression, “Like attracts like?” Do you know what it means?


Our thoughts are real things, not an idea simply entertained by you, but real, physical things, called ‘thought forms.’ There are people that can actually see these things hanging out in your aura, and the reason they can see them is because they are real things, just like your aura is.


Different colors in an aura mean different things; different moods, different attitudes, and different thought forms. Science has taught us that energies attract the same kinds of energies to themselves; like a magnet attracts another magnet on one side of it, but if you turn one of the magnets over, they actually repel each other.


That’s because the energy is ‘putting out’ in one direction, and when turned over, it attracts. Think of your thought forms as magnets, and they come out of your head and stick in your aura. The negative ones look like black blobs hanging around our body and they act in negative ways, like attracting negativity just looking for someone to affect. Whatever these magnetic thought forms radiate, is exactly what it will attract.


Clichés are Often Useful Sayings


Someone with a very negative attitude will not be very happy, or lucky. Yes, your state of mind can affect your luck. Remember another old saying, “Dress for Success?” It’s a true and real thought form and you know it works; when you feel like you look good, you act like you look good. You carry yourself better and may even feel more confident.


When you feel like you don’t look good, say when you’re wearing stained-up sweats, then you won’t feel as good and you may even be embarrassed if someone you know happens to catch you out and about. That would be the negativity attracting like energy.


It’s exactly the same premise as ‘like attracts like.’ All the powers of suggestion and attitude advice you’ve heard all your life really works. “Love yourself before others can love you,” and “If you can see it, you can believe it,” are some other true phrases we all have heard, but only some believe it and put stock into it.


Self Improvement Can Take You a Long Way in a Short Time


Now, this isn’t to say that if you feel lucky you will win the lottery. It could happen, sure. But, it won’t happen at all if you’re a generally negative person. “What you put out, you also receive.” “Hard work never hurt anyone,” and the hardest tasks are the most satisfying when completed; that’s just a fact of life.


They say there’s “no such thing as a free lunch.” If you believe that, you will never find a free lunch, but if you set your mind to believing that lunch will be free, sooner or later, and you keep a positive attitude generally in your life, it raises your chances that someone will ending up buying you lunch one day.


Look in the Mirror


Take a long, hard look at your life. Has it been generally happy and you’ve had perks of good luck now and then? Or are you just living day to day, getting more and more mired down in the mud and thinking, “if only this or that,” or your “luck is all bad?” Only you can tell if you’re a happy person.


“She’s so perky, I hate her!“ We’ve all heard someone say this while at work, school, or anywhere they have to be when they’d rather be somewhere else, like still in bed. Some people are perky no matter what happens.. That person is more likely to win a free lunch, the lottery, or get the good paying jobs.


Yet another of those famous old cliché sayings is, “See it and you can be it,” and, “What comes around, goes around,” or Karma. These myriads of sayings and clichés have been repeated almost as much as the phrase, “I love you.” So there’s tons of other positive thought forms already out there, waiting to be attracted to you.

I think this is very informative. It is trite, negativity attracts negativity. I found it useful and a great read! :-)
