I’m coming to you from my hospital room at Fox Chase Cancer Center where I got my kidney biopsied yesterday. Today’s practice is a game I call; “Find the Positive” and I started doing it last night at 2 am when I was unable to sleep.
It may be the most important practice you can ever do. It’s a practice to help you find the good in any situation, no matter how bad, upsetting or undesirable it happens to be.
Why is it so important? Because no matter what is going on in your current reality, the only true predictor of your future is the vibration you are sending out into the universe. You can call it, “You Reap what You Sow”, “Karma”, “Cause and Effect”, or the “Law of Attraction”, the bottom line is the universe will always match your energy and send you back more of the same.
The challenge is that when your present actuality is lousy, it’s easy to focus on the lousy. And if you allow yourself to only see the negatives going on in your life that’s exactly what the universe will return to you, more negatives.
The only way to change your current circumstances is to change the frequency you are emitting.
And that takes practice.
And there is no better place to practice finding positives than in the hospital room I find myself in. I’m here because I had to have my kidney biopsied and it would be very easy to center on the negatives…
- It’s 2 am and I can’t sleep.
- I have a stent and a catheter and not only feel pain, but also the constant pressure to urinate.
- The maintenance men were fixing the room above mine, and hammering, drilling and sawing until midnight.
- I have a roommate. He may be a nice guy but he’s very hard of hearing and when he’s awake, he keeps asking, “Is someone saying something to me”.
- That is far preferred to when he is sleeping. His snoring could wake the dead.
- I have an IV in my elbow crease and every time I bend my arm the machine behind me beeps like crazy.
- The Wi-Fi isn’t working.
Like I said, it’s easy to see only the negatives, our mind goes there automatically.
It takes work to concentrate on positives, but when you do, they too, seem to multiply.
- I have health insurance.
- I chose this hospital, and contrary to what I said above, it’s excellent.
- I chose my doctor, and he’s fantastic.
- The procedure went exactly as expected.
- My nurse and nurse’s aid are wonderful, helpful and caring.
- The TV works.
- I’m going home tomorrow.
- Most importantly, The results were perfect. I received a clean bill of health. Hallelujah!
That’s right, I am healthy, and that is worth repeating over and over and over. It feels great to say it, and the more I do, the better I feel.
It just takes a little practice.
So if you find yourself in a situation where you’re feeling disappointed, depressed or unhappy, remember the “Wingman Find the Positive” game. And play it like your life depends on it. It just might.
