Susan Apolon, author of Touched by the Extraordinary, Book Two: Healing Stories of Love, Loss & Hope
You’ve heard of the Law of Attraction: like energy attracts like energy. If you spend time obsessing over the relationships in your life that aren’t going so well, you’ll end up attracting even more negative people and situations.
On the flip side, if you think positive thoughts, you will attract positive things, people, and events into your life. That’s why it’s so important to be clear about your intentions. You need to decide what a healthy, comfortable relationship looks like for you and keep that picture in your mind.
“What we focus on causes us to ‘vibrate’ at a particular level. Thus, focusing on thoughts or images that make us feel good—like our favorite people, or how we feel when we’re with our best friends—will enable us to be at a higher level energetically and, consequently, will draw to us a higher level of vibrational experience.
You can also send out a simple prayer to God or to the Universe that you’re seeking to be connected to more positive people, and make sure you do so with a sense of expectation and gratitude.
Practice positivity. The Law of Attraction isn’t just limited to what you visualize for the future; it also applies to how you’re behaving right now. Specifically, frequent complaints and negativity breed more of the same. Remember that every morning when you wake up, the ball is in your court in regards to how you want to spend your day. If you exude bitterness, anger, or self-pity, you may be bringing those around you down, too. Indeed, it’s possible that some of the people in your life are right and healthy for you, but that you are poisoning the relationship with constant negativity.
Make a conscious choice to surround those people with love. By putting a smile on your face and greeting someone else with a cheerful, ‘Hi! Glad to see you!’ you can set the tone for your interaction, as well as change your energy and the energy of those around you.
