How we see ourselves and how we interact with the world around us has a lot to do with the energy that we are radiating out from ourselves. If we are constantly negative and constantly looking for the areas of perceived deficit in the world around us then that is what we naturally observe. If I wake up every morning and think about the sports car I don’t have, the mansion I don’t live in and the million dollars in the bank that isn’t there then of course this tints everything that I see. Alcoholics and those in drug recovery programs often have a very difficult time in understanding this concept and changing their thinking from what I can’t do anymore to all the things that are available for them to do that are positive and constructive.
“The Law of Sobriety”, the book I wrote specifically to help people in recovery use the process of seeking positives in their life, is based on a principle known as the Law of Attraction. This Law is evident everywhere that you look. The more that you believe something positive can and will happen in your life and the more you live your life that way and the more that it is likely to occur. Think of it as projecting your desires onto the world and having the world reflect them back to you in opportunities and events.
This all starts with creating a positive perspective about self. Envisioning yourself as a successful, sober and positive person creates positive energy within. This positive energy is then sent forward into the world around us as we live our life based on that positive vision. The more positive energy we radiate out the more positive energy will be returned to us. Being open to those opportunities is a true gift, but one that can only happen when negativity is out and positivity is in.
