Don’t Stop Your Thoughts, Redirect Them!

Line Break

Author: Lisa78 (25 Articles)

I am a visual artist from Maine. I love skiing and white water rafting. I am currently a watercolor freak.

I came to a great realization recently. I realized that you can’t make a thought stop. If you try to stop thinking about something, you only think about it more. So I made a pledge to redirect my thinking instead. Here are three times I did this during this past week:

  1. My mother called. I was in a rush. I felt mad that she caught me at a bad time. I seemed irritated, and she could tell. I could tell. Then, I decided to think about how much she means to me. I redirected and thought about what a gift it is that she is still alive and aware of her surroundings. I thought about how lucky I am to have her. I felt better. I felt grateful. The conversation went better. I was on time after all to where I was going.
  2. I was on hold with the phone company trying to sort out a charge on my monthly bill. I held for a while, got a nice person, had it almost resolved when…the call was dropped, and I couldn’t call the agent back. (Irony abounds, eh?) I had to go through the whole process AGAIN! I was ready to take it out on the next person (who didn’t know me or my story at all), but instead, I redirected my thoughts. I “made up” a story about this person, and it went something like this: This person loves their job. They will enjoy helping me. They didn’t cause the dropped call. They will be able to solve this easily. I will enjoy interacting with this agent. And that is EXACTLY what happened. No dropped call either.
  3. I was driving to work and found myself in bumper-to-bumper traffic. “EEEEK!” I knew i would be really late at the rate the traffic was moving. “Damn it,” I thought. “This sucks! Why ME?” Then I redirected. I told THIS story: Maybe this delay is setting me up to run into events and circumstances that will help me today. Maybe I avoided an accident myself by slowing here. I will be in perfect timing today. I can’t be late, because I am perfectly aligned with people and events. This is just part of the perfection. In the five minutes that I redirected my thoughts, the traffic started moving and I was on my way..and NOT late for work. Gratitude and appreciation flowed.

OK, you might say, thinking didn’t change those circumstances. You just felt better in those circumstances. And I say, look, Law of Attraction either is real, or it isn’t. If it’s real, then how I feel matters a lot! If it isn’t real, I just got lucky. I can’t prove it to you, but you can prove it to yourself. Try redirecting and see if you have fewer bad endings and more good endings to your daily segments. I swear that when I redirect, things work out almost every time. If it has worked for you, even ONCE, leave a comment and let me know about it. Tell me your story people! I know there are thousands, if not millions of people who have experienced this kind of magic in their life. Let’s hear your stories! Thanks for reading. Let me know if you liked this post!  Lisa-GP

      Kathryn,
      I love reading your comments because they feel good! You have found the essence of this “Law of Attraction Magic,” which is all about how you feel and what you expect to see. Simply expecting something good to happen puts you in a place of allowing, and allowing brings all you want into your life. Your story is especially inspiring because of the tough times you have been going through, and yet you maneuvered through it all easily and relatively unobstructed. Bravo to you! Thanks for taking the time to leave this post. In Appreciation, Chris and the GP Staff

      I have really noticed that when I get out of sync with the flow of the universe bad things happen: I trip and get hurt, get bad news, lose something, etc. When I’m feeling grateful and in sync good things happen: someone chases me down to return something I’ve dropped, I receive gifts, job offers, invitations, etc.

      I thought positively all through my divorce, which took more than a year. In the end, my ex-husband willingly gave me more than half the money and EVERY SINGLE conversation was polite and cordial – even when we were at odds. I anticipated that he had nothing but the best intentions and that’s how he behaved. I tried to react generously and that led to other good stuff. I now take every bad turn that I encounter as a sign from the universe guiding me to get back in sync with a more generous and grateful attitude, and things always turn around almost instantaneously. This stuff works!

      Lisa,
      Love this post. I like not having to worry about the “not to’s” and focusing on the “get to’s”

      Sometimes I don’t worry about whether my situation changed or not. For me, just the fact that I feel better is reason enough to redirect my thoughts. In this way, LOA is proven time and again, because the better I feel, the better I feel!

      OK. I put a call in to someone I knew for a job proposal I was working on. I didn’t hear back from them. I called again and left the same message, this time relaying how important it was that they call me back, because I had to have time to call other people if this person couldn’t do it. Still nothing. I was getting really upset! I thought to myself “Yeah…it’s JUST LIKE this person to NOT call me back when I need something from them! I’m there ALL THE TIME for them, and the ONE time I ask for something…..BOOOM!! They aren’t there!!” Then I thought about the spiral of thought. We can either get on the spiral of thought that goes up, or we can get on the one that takes us spiraling down. I decided to take the one that headed up. I started saying things like “I’m sure they are going to get back to me. This person is very responsible, and they like me. I’m sure they will call within a few hours.” I started feeling better! My mood improved, and I was able to go about my work without holding onto my anger. Know what? They called back 30 minutes later, apologizing for not getting back to me sooner. It seems that they were having troubles with their phone system, and didn’t get any of the messages until five minutes before they called!

      I did this just the other day. Works like a charm and it’s empowering. I am in control of my own thoughts, no one else. No one else can make me feel angry or upset. I always get to choose to be happy or not. It’s up to me!
