The energy we put out is the energy we receive.

“Like attracts like”, is a term used to describe “The Law of Attraction” and how energy moves between people, enhancing an existing state of mind in one person, by connecting it with others that are feeling similarly. Here’s a clear example of this energy enhancement that we can probably all relate to: Let’s say we’re at a live basketball game, instead of watching it on tv. It’s so much more exhilarating to be with a crowd, building up that energy together. We put out our own excitement and receive more excitement from others. Our internal energy is intensified by the energy of people around us. This same concept also works on a smaller, more remote scale. For instance, perhaps we’ve experienced thinking of someone, and suddenly they contact us. Or, we feared a situation and suddenly our fear manifests into reality. Our energy goes to where we focus, and our internal thoughts can be brought into existence through our subconscious, and by what we radiate. Some people say our energy vibrates on specific frequencies that can align with others’ frequency to make a match. We may not fully understand yet how this energy transfer happens, but knowing it exists means we should make it work in our favour. It’s worthwhile to pay attention to the kind of energy we are putting out, knowing that we will attract more of it.

Take action: Is your internal dialogue attracting what you want in life? Are you saying you feel tired, stressed and worried and thus attracting more of the same? Or, are you excited, appreciative, and confident, finding yourself surrounded by others who enhance what you want to feel? Choose what energy you want to attract, say it out loud, and let go of what you don’t want.
