Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great day full of joy and love and calm.
I'm wondering if anyone has attempted to or had success with applying the law of attraction to their anxiety. For those who are unfamiliar with what it's about, go to YouTube and search for Abraham Hicks. There are a ton of recordings there about using the power of positive emotion (aka vibrations) to attain things that you desire. You have probably also heard of the book/movie The Secret. It's basically the same thing. LOA says that what you put out, you get back. So negative thoughts bring more of the same. Positive ones help you move forward. I have heard it is possible to apply this to depression, anxiety, OCD, etc. I know it works for other things as I used it to make more money at work in the past (when I worked *sigh* lol). I was in sales and saw a direct result of prosperity stem from my prosperous attitude. The more momentum I gathered up, the more successful I was. I see it can definitely go both ways! The more we concentrate on anxiety, the more it seems to hang out like a bad fart.
This also seems to be in alignment with CBT and reshaping our thoughts to positive ones. Neither are an instant fix, but require practice and dedication to the desired result.
I am starting to envision myself going back to work, being successful, smiling, popular, adored, having fun, etc. It seems less scary every day.
I'm also keeping a gratitude journal, which helps me accept my current state in life.
How about you?
