An excerpt from my Work in Progress, Spoonful of Sugar: A Daily Dose of Inspiration and Encouragement.
Energy is the currency of the universe. When you ‘pay’ attention to something, you buy that experience. So when you allow your consciousness to focus on someone or something that annoys you, you feed it your energy, and it reciprocates the experience of being annoyed. Be selective in your focus because your attention feeds the energy of it and keeps it alive.
If energy is the universal currency of life, then this is something I need to pay greater awareness to. It has no border boundaries. It has no limitations or restrictions. It simply reciprocates whatever focus I give it. I can liken it to my bank account. If no cash goes in, there is nothing to withdraw. The same here. If I only deposit negativity, that’s all I’ll have coming back to me.
However, understanding this concept is easier than putting it into practice. I don’t know about you, but many years of habitually reacting the same way too often finds me doing just what I don’t want to do – focusing on the negative aspects of life. I think I need to staple a post-it note to my forehead – FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE!
However, when I make a conscious effort to pay attention to what I focus on, I notice an immense difference in my general attitude and in my happiness with life.
What about you? What kinds of things do you focus on? Are you focusing on the negative, or the positive energetic exchanges?
