8 Ways to Maintain a Positive Attitude, No Matter What…

We have all heard that having a positive mental attitude is important for physical healing, emotional healing and achieving success.  When we are experiencing challenges, it can be harder to maintain a positive attitude.

in 2002, I was given a diagnosis of a debilitating illness and instead of worrying about what might happen, I continued living as if I wasn’t going to die…

Even while doctors were trying to figure out what was wrong, I was working with an incredibly supportive group of alternative and energy healing practitioners.    I intentionally surrounded myself with positive supportive people, I read books, listened to teleseminars and took programs to inspire and educate me on healing and the importance of positive mental attitude.

In the 15 years following the devastating diagnosis, I experienced increasing physical limitation, got a divorce, moved 6 times, had to leave my job and lost my home.  So, I had to learn many ways to maintain a positive attitude and reduce stress.

Everything you do either helps your body heal or hinders it.  Maintaining a positive attitude helps it…

8 Ways to Maintain a Positive Attitude

ONE                      STAY INSPIRED

Search for and connect with people who have healed, are healing, inspire and motivate you.  Read books, watch videos, join groups and follow people who inspire and motivate you.

What did these people who succeeded do?  How did they do it?

A few times a day or when you need a boost, read or listen to inspiring messages.


We are always connected to love and we don’t have to wait for someone to give us love and approval. We also need to let go of disapproving of ourselves and beating ourselves up.  We need to learn how to give ourselves love and approval, this was life changing for me.   I learned these things primarily from Release Technique.

So, when you catch yourself disapproving or being critical of yourself or your body, stop and give yourself LOVE and APPROVAL.

“You are neither too much nor too little.   You are perfect just as you are, dear ones.  You don’t have to prove anything to anyone anywhere…  You are perfect as you are, right here and right now. There is no need to struggle to be better.  All you need to do is love yourself more and more each day.     The rest will follow.”  Louise Hay Newsletter 10/15/2016



In addition to boosting our mood, meditation and prayer reduces stress, increases energy flow and energetic frequency.  Quantum Touch also has the same benefits and you can also use it for healing.

One easy way is to think of something you love and turn up the intensity of the feeling of love and visualize placing the feeling in your heart.  Now, focus on your breath and if thoughts appear, allow them to leave and return to your breath.

Another way is to connect to source energy, the universe or God and use focused breath as above.  Set intention to deepen connection with source energy or as I learned from Mas Sajady ask “How do I connect to source energy even stronger?”

As you practice, your connection and the benefits will increase.

FOUR                    BE PRESENT

The majority of stress comes from regret or judgment of the past or Worry and Fear of the Future.  Ask yourself, “In this moment am I safe?”, most of the time the answer is YES.  If something is upsetting in this moment use another method, try not to hold negative energy for things you can’t change or control.

“Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment… Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you.” Eckhart Tolle


There are many Essential Oils that boost the mood and reduce stress.  Essential Oils are made from plants; therefore, the oils are highly concentrated and contain the healing properties of the plants. They are also very high frequency.

I use CBD hemp oil for its many benefits, one is improvement of my mood.  “CBD has been shown in a handful of studies to positively affect emotional behavior, mood, sleep, stress, irritability and fear, among other things.” http://www.consciouslifestylemag.com/omica-hemp-cbd-tonic/

SIX                         FEEL GRATITUDE

When feeling sad or discouraged, look around for things that help you, make your life easier, lifts your spirit and feel grateful. Also thank your body for what it can do, instead of focusing on the challenges.

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” Brian Tracy   Brainy Quote


Think about what makes you happy or something that you want to achieve.  Visualize it and FEEL what you will feel if or when you achieve it.  Sit there for a few minutes and really feel all the feelings and sensations as if you had it now.


Learn an emotional energy healing technique.  Practicing an energy healing technique will heal triggers to sources of stress, trapped negative emotions and trauma.   This helps maintain a positive attitude more easily.

It also allows our bodies to stay in the growth process so we can either heal or prevent illness.  There are many methods that release or clear stress and trauma trapped in your body, like Healing Code, EFT aka Tapping, Release Technique.
