“Even if I am locked in a prison cell and hated by the entire
world, my spirit can still be that of a king.”

– Daisaku Ikeda

It seems too simple, I know. It’s so simple that we want to make it more difficult, more esoteric. However, the simple truth is that the only way to feel good is to think thoughts that feel good.

Likewise, the only way to feel bad is to think thoughts that feel bad. It really is that straightforward.

Because our thoughts produce our feelings, what we choose to think determines how we feel. Please notice it’s what we choose to think. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like we’re choosing our thoughts because negative momentum appears to be choosing our thoughts for us.

Negative momentum may at times feel like a runaway train. We may even be tempted to believe those negative thoughts. However, at any moment, we can consciously choose to think a thought that feels better. Even if we choose a thought that feels just a little bit better, we have stopped the negative momentum and we’re re-focused in a more positive direction.

We often want to blame other people or external circumstances for our bad mood. We think, “if only he / she / it / they would change, I would feel good.” Alas, it’s up to us. And that is where our power lies.

We are guaranteed to feel bad if we think thoughts that feel bad. Likewise, we’re guaranteed to feel good if we think good feeling thoughts.

Feeling good really is as easy as thinking thoughts that feel good [or a little bit better], focusing on things that are easy to appreciate and thinking of others who are easy to love. In this way, we begin climbing back up the emotional scale. Isn’t it nice to know we have the power to choose how we feel!

Here’s the process: We stay present and notice how we’re feeling. When we notice we’re not feeling good, we take that as information. Information – NOT that we’ve done something wrong or that we’re in some way flawed – but information that we’re thinking thoughts that don’t serve us. Once we become aware of our negative thoughts, we can then begin choosing thoughts that feel better.

Some days it seems more difficult than others, but it’s always the same process:
*Stay present and notice how you feel.
*Consciously choose thoughts that feel better.
*Voila, your vibration rises and you’re a vibrational match to your desires!

It is simple and it does work, but it also takes practice. As we practice choosing thoughts that feel good and we get in the habit of feeling good, pretty soon feeling bad will be so unacceptable that, at the first hint of negative emotion, we’ll nip it in the bud and get back to our natural state of well-being.

We all want to feel good and, thankfully, the Law of Attraction teaches us how to do that. We know how to feel good and we have the power to feel good. What could be better than that!
