How to make it work for you
“Kehte hain ki…agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho to puri kayanat usey tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai,” Shah Rukh Khan said in the film Om Shanti Om. And that’s true to a certain extent, because what you wish for the universe, at some point, gives it to you.
On the one hand, there is nutrition, exercise, emotional health, sleep, medicine, etc., and on the other, there are phenomena beyond medicine that are not talked about. much or not talked about much, but which are real, work and have a role to play in building human health and happiness. They have even aroused the interest of today’s scientists and researchers.
One such tool beyond medicine is the power of the universe. Depending on an individual’s faith, one can choose to call him God, nature, the higher powers, or the universe. Some also bring religious or spiritual connotations. Either way, the truth is that the power and magic of the universe is limitless. It may sound like a fairy tale, but when you understand the energies, the human spirit, the fundamentals of nature and science, you start to believe it. In the end, it’s all about faith. People pray because they have faith, while some don’t because they have faith in something else.
So how can you make the universe work in your favor? Here are some simple ways:
Have faith: It all starts with having faith in the universe, its power and its providence. Nothing works without faith. When you put out your prayers and your message to the universe, it’s not your job to micromanage and chase results. It just means you don’t trust the process. Learn to surrender. None of us operate on their schedule. We operate on the timeline of the universe or God or the high power (whatever you choose to call it). This is where faith in providence comes in – that we will be protected and cared for no matter what.
The right choice of words: Most people are energetically blocked because of the wrong choice of words. You have to change your inner discourse and move it from a space of lack to a space of abundance.
For example, instead of saying “I want more money”, “I want more love”, “I want a better relationship”, they need to reframe that and say “I am getting better health/meaningful relationships/ of wealth/love in my life”. There is a huge difference between the “getting” and “receiving” attitude. Our words have immense power and we often end up limiting our growth and process with the type of words we choose to tag ourselves.
Practicing Gratitude: You receive more of what you are grateful for. If you are grateful for the love in your life, you will receive more of it. Expressing gratitude also raises our vibration or energy. Our vibrations (energy) are like radio signals, and so we need to tune into the frequency that supports healing, relationships, personal growth, and more. The more the positive vibrations, the more the positive signals we send.
In addition to practicing gratitude, other simple ways to raise your vibration are:
Engage in physical activities – whether through walks, yoga, dancing or exercise.
What you think, manifests. Before an architect builds a structure, he first visualizes it in his mind. Likewise, have a clear picture of what you want in life and begin to build a mental imagery of the same. The vision should be crystal clear and you feel like it is already happening to you. Dream it, see it, desire it, feel it and surrender. That’s all.
Just wishing for things to go your way and visualizing is not enough. It also takes a proactive effort. For example, wishing your diabetes would go away is useless. You need to be willing to put in the effort to eat right, exercise, sleep, and watch your emotional health.
