Most of us have a friend who seems more surprised when things go right than when they go wrong. “This always happens to me” might be their common glum refrain. However, they might want to consider the law of attraction. So much of who we are and how we feel is reflected right back at us.
The next time you’re certain that the cards are not in your favour, have a seat.
In the midst of a busy and rushed existence, it can be hard to detect the beauty and the joy that is always present around you. This does not mean faking it, but rather than being in your head, try to bring yourself to present moment awareness.
Think silently to yourself the word “Om.” Every time you find you are distracted by your thoughts, or by noises in your environment, come back to “Om”. This mantra is a sacred sound that honours the notion of connectedness to the whole universe. It’s even thought to be the sound of the universe.
After 5-10 minutes, release the mantra and open your eyes. As you go about your day, notice your connection with the energy of the world around you.
This will reverberate into your core, giving you the opportunity to let go and bring forth better days ahead.
