Are You Investing Your Attention Wisely?
Your attention is a valuable form of currency. You choose how to spend it just as you do with your time and money. Is it any wonder we're always told to 'pay attention'? Given the value of your attention, how you invest it should be a top priority.
Where your attention goes energy flows. As such, through focusing your attention on something, you are activating your thoughts, emotions and beliefs. This is evident in the fact that when you focus on things you like and appreciate, you experience positive feelings.
As we live in an inclusive universe wherever you invest your attention, grows accordingly. The reason for this is that your attention is your point of attraction. By giving your attention to something, you are creating more of that thing. Therefore as a deliberate creator, it's in your best interest to invest your attention on things you want in your reality.
“If you focus upon whatever you want, you will attract whatever you want. If you focus upon the lack of whatever you want, you will attract more of the lack.” — Abraham Hicks
A simple way to begin investing your attention wisely is to focus on appreciating things in your current reality.
Let's take, for example, the simple act of showering. Showering is an ingrained habit in our daily routine. So much that we can take part in it without consciously focusing. As such, we usually use this time to think about other things. What tends to happen is most think about things that they're anticipating. They think about things they need to fix, what they need to do that day or something that makes them experience contrasting feelings.
Instead, focus on appreciating the simple act of showering. Appreciate the first moment that the water hits your skin, the rejuvenating feeling of showering or the abundance of clean water flowing freely. At this point, you may think that appreciating your time in the shower may be quite boring. That something as simple as appreciating your shower couldn't really change your reality.
However, if you focused on consistently appreciating the experience of showering, you'd be shocked at the changes in your reality. The reason for this is that every time you appreciate something, you are telling the universe that you want more experiences that give you those feelings.
From there, you will notice yourself consciously choosing to invest your attention on the people, things and manifestations that you want to be experiencing. Which will naturally lead to you creating and manifesting more of those things into your reality.
"Every time you praise something, every time you appreciate something, every time you feel good about something, you are telling the Universe more of this please, more of this please." — Abraham Hicks
Remember, where your attention goes energy flows. As such, focus on the things that you want in your reality, the things that light you up and the things you want to be experiencing.
