The Law of Attraction is a universally recognized belief in the metaphysical realm that states that “like attracts like”, or what you look for you will find. At first glance this may seem a bit serendipity or naïve, but if you stop to consider things that have occurred, both positive and negative, you will begin to see the value in recognizing and embracing this type of outlook.

In essence everything that happens in your life occurs because of a thought, which can be either a positive thought or a negative thought. Thought proceeds action and action proceeds reaction or results. The problem with most people in recovery is that they want to start with the result, which is leading a clean and sober life. However, as I have talked about in my book “The Law of Sobriety”, the negative thoughts they hold and embrace about themselves, the addiction and their life keep bringing about negative actions and negative results. Instead, people that want to have positive results need to start by purging the negative thoughts that are trapping and attracting negative energy.

There are simple steps to take to start to change negative thoughts to positive thoughts that will bring about positive actions and results. If you want to start to attract positive energy and engage in positive actions try these simple thought exercises at the start of every day.

  • Visualize a positive day. See the good things that will come your way and avoid focusing on possible barriers and obstacles that are negative.
  •  See the people around you as positive, helpful and supportive. Look for people that embody these traits and limit or avoid contact with people that are negative in their thoughts, actions and results.
  •  See yourself as successful in your thoughts and actions. Imagine yourself as you want to be and you will find that your actions take you to that positive place. Without a positive thought process opening up your world to positive actions negativity will always hold you back.
