Not everyone believes this but the emotional and mental aspects of a person, when combined, leads to better self improvement.
Emotions love to dominate our actions and reactions, even though we do not want it to happen sometimes. The society often see emotions as a sign of weakness, so people are used to putting them aside and focusing on the rational aspects more and more.
No matter how strict and logical you may be, you will always feel. One way or another, someone or something will get through you.
Positive emotions are a lifelong goal for many of us concerned about emotional health and self improvement. What is more important; the amount of money you made during your life or the times you laughed out of sheer joy?
People tend to put their positive emotions behind their negative feelings. This is one of the biggest problems that people come across during their lives.
There is no clear way to ignore a negative experience and try to replace it with a positive one. Life just does not work that way.
For example, when you were a child, if your goldfish dies, you would be heartbroken. Your parents will probably buy you another goldfish but the sorrow is still there.
Things get even more complex when you become an adult. A fight with your spouse the night before will affect your entire day. You will go to work angry, tired, and your mind will wander. On the way home from work you will not notice the sun shining and you would not be tempted to stop at a roadside stand to pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables.
All this because that one negative thought has contaminated the way you perceive the reality around you.
In this moment you will realize finding a safe place to relax your mind will do wonders for your emotional and mental improvement.
That place is relatively easy to find. It can be an actual place or an imaginary location. The best idea is to totally lose yourself in it.
Let us say you have a problem on your mind and it just would not go away. Go bowling. Do not know how? Just give it a shot.
Get caught up in the game. Your mind will drift away from the negative thoughts that dominated your last hours or days and start processing a whole new kind of information.
A safe haven can take many forms. It can be a song, a movie, even a person or animal. The main thing is allow yourself to get completely involved with this new activity.
You might still get flashes of the problem every now and then. Ignore it and get even more absorbed in what you are doing.
When the bowling game, the song, or the movie ends you will abruptly return to reality. You will probably want to retreat back to the safe place. Do not do it.
The safe place exists only as a helping hand, not as a solution to your life’s problems, may it be a small or big. It serves only as an escape route.
You will return from your safe zone with an increased energy level. You will feel better about yourself and gain more confidence. You will see that any issue can be resolved.
This is how a small escape from a harsh reality can increase your emotional and mental health. Try to do this often and you are on your way to better self improvement.
If you are asking the question how do I manifest, then read this. Learning to manifest your desires is similar to learning
So how is swimming similar to manifesting?
Both manifesting and swimming requires total trust, i.e. letting go. In the case of manifesting, you need to let go
of your need to control the outcome and trust that you shall receive that which you seek.
In the case of swimming you trust that you will not drown.
Everyon*e who has learned to swim will tell you that fear causes you to sink. Lack of fear allows you to float. And
even if you go down it will be temporary and you’ll soon bob back to the surface.
It is the same with trying to manifest your desires. It should be practically fait accompli (It’s already done). Accept your desires as alrea*dy having been fulfilled. If you have any doubts whatsoever, that this is not so, you will fail to attract your desires.
You can fool people, but you cannot fool the Universe. Every thought, feeling or doubt, no matter how slight is vibrated out to the Universe.
I only learned to swim now recently and it was while in the pool that I realized the parallels between swimming and manifesting.
I was baffled by the fact that I had difficulty keeping my hea*d above water, while experienced swimmers didn’t have such a problem. They would swim effortlessly while I struggled.
That was until my instructor said this: “The reason you sink is because you don’t trust the water to keep you up. You’re afraid that if you let go, you’ll go down.”
And then it hit me. It is the same with manifesting your desires!
No trust, no manifestation.
It’s only when you totally and unequivocally trust that your desires are as good as having alrea*dy been delivered, that the manifestation will appear.
The proof of your total trust is when you express your gratitude and already start celebrating, in spite of your present reality which may be the exact opposite of what you profess.
However, just as it is with swimming, getting to that point doesn’t happen overnight. We first have to let go of our fears which is a product of our past experiences
Until we choose to change and do things differently, we will continue to get the things we’ve always gotten.
So in short the answer to the question, how do I manifest, is to just trust.
Trust that the Universe/God wants what’s best for you and is fully capable to supply what you want.
Trust that if you follow the laws of attraction and of manifestation, you shall certainly have everything you want.
Trust that just as the water lifts you up and lets you float, the Universe shall keep your head above the tides of life, irrespective of how fearful things may seem right now.
