5 Tips For Attracting Positive People Into Your Life
When you begin reading and thinking about the Law of Attraction, one of the first things that you discover is that positivity of is paramount importance. As you work to attract the thing you want—whether it’s love, abundance, career advancement or health—you need to vibrate on a positive frequency if you’re going to succeed.
There are plenty of tools you can use to enhance your personal positivity, from keeping a daily gratitude journal to creating a dream board that displays images connected to joy and well-being.
However, the truth is that it isn’t just your own positivity that matters—the vibration of others around you can also influence your likelihood of manifesting the life you desire. When you’re surrounded by positive people, your self-esteem grows and you’re in a constant feedback loop of excitement, inspiration and energy.
If, on the other hand, you have negative people around you, then they can sap your positivity and make you vibrate on a lower frequency.
So, how do you ensure that you have as many positive people around you as possible? Here are five tips for attracting them into your life.
1. Use Visualization
You’ll already be familiar with the process of using creative visualization to build detailed, lifelike images of the things you want to attract. However, once you’ve honed your visualization skills, you can also use them to do other exercises.
One technique that can help you to attract positive people involves visualizing these people coming towards you. After you’ve focused on slow, steady breathing for a few minutes, allow your mind to generate an image that represents your ability to pull other positive people towards you.
For example, you might feel a shimmering outline of an unspecific person holding their arms out towards you, and feel the love and support that resonates from this person. Alternatively, you might imagine yourself glowing with a golden light that magnetically attracts good people.
There’s no rule about what you need to visualize, as long as you feel it represents happy, nurturing individuals coming into your life. Try to repeat this visualization at least once a day.
2. Target Your Own Negativity
As the Law of Attraction states, we tend to attract more of the things that we “give out” to the universe. So, if you’re sending out negativity then it will be so much harder to attract positive people.
This negativity doesn’t have to be malicious—for example, even if you are an accepting a friendly person, if you believe that you don’t deserve positive people in your life then you’re less likely to receive them.
Ask yourself whether you have any negative beliefs or assumptions about friendships and relationships, and work to counter those in order to draw more positive people towards you. The manifestation addendum of my recent book “Origins” is a great place to start to find exercises that help you rewrite outdated, limiting beliefs.
3. Be Honest
Sometimes, we are tempted to hold onto old friendships and relationships that are no longer working for us and only drag us down. To maximize your chances of meeting positive people and making solid connections, practice regular self-reflection about your social circle.
Is anyone dragging you down? Is there someone who always criticizes you, or even laughs at you? It’s time to consider cutting ties with these sorts of people to make space for ones who will empower you and help you to reach your full potential.
4. Give Love Every Day
You can attract more positive people towards you if you’re constantly radiating positivity—even to strangers. Make a habit of giving love every day, and you’ll see it begin to come back to you.
You don’t have to make grand gestures—even just complimenting someone on their gorgeous outfit, lending an ear to a troubled colleague for 20 minutes or giving an hour of your time to volunteer work each week can make a big difference. As a bonus, these types of activities may trigger wonderful new friendships!
5. Practice Affirmations Before Socializing
Finally, you can help to get yourself into the right headspace for making positive connections by giving yourself a bit of a pep talk before you socialize. Whether you’re going to spending time getting to know people at work, going to a party or attending a dinner, try to find affirmations that make you feel open and happy about the possibility of getting to know people.
Focus on your most positive qualities and the things that you know other people appreciate about you, and reaffirm your belief in these aspects of yourself. For example, you might say “I feel and trust the positive energy inside me” or “I have the power to attract positive people who will enrich my life.”
