The guide for using Law of Attraction to help you beat depression: Part 2
Daily Affirmations to Choke Out Depression
Now you have to adopt a new routine - and in order to do that you must first recognize that it takes awhile. You have to learn new habits and rewrite over old ones.
Don't feel down if you forget in the moment how to do it. Pick it up as soon as you realize it and move on. Over time, it will become second nature for you to live this way and you won't have to try so hard or think about it as much - it will come naturally.
For the next 2 weeks, stay very aware of your present mindset. That doesn't mean look back at the end of the day about how you felt.
It means check in with yourself every half hour before too much time passes and see how you're feeling.
You don't have to waste time writing some big journal entry about it - just do a self check. "How am I feeling right now in this second?"
If the answer is anything less than content, then pinpoint it. "What's making me feel anxious or sad or angry?"
When you know what it is, you want to do two things - first, implement a new mindset about it.
If you're feeling depressed because you're in a job that you can't stand, then repeat an affirmation that the law of attraction uses to write over your old mindset.
You don't want to go through your day chained to negative feelings about your job - you want to focus on making a better life.
So you'll say something like, "I am happy that I'm working on achieving my goal of becoming a ... (and fill in the blank with whatever position it is you do want)."
Words alone aren't enough. We'll talk about action steps in a moment. Many LOA followers also use daily affirmations to uplift themselves.
They would add on to that previous message and say something such as, "I am pleased that I love and honor myself enough to work toward a career of my choosing."
You might feel like this is unnatural in the beginning. You might even feel like it's awkward.
But your subconscious mind ingrains this message - whether you are actively thinking in a positive manner or a negative one, so continue doing the exercise regardless of how well you believe it will work at first.
You're teaching yourself to quit feeling bad and start looking at the good part of what's happening at that very moment.
Using daily affirmations in the moment, or before bed and right when you wake up, is a great way to choke out depression for good.
Consider them akin to St Augustine grass. That is a hearty grass that, when thriving, will choke
out weeds in a lawn, refusing to allow them to grow and infiltrate the plot of land.
You're doing the same. When your mind is focused on positive thoughts as often as possible, there's simply no room for anything else.
There's no possibility for depression to take root because happiness is too strong and too plentiful in your life at that time.
If you want to be more logical than simply ignoring the negative and replacing it with positive, then you can do that, too.
You can say, "It's understandable that I'm unhappy with this career, but I'm so proud of myself for working on a big change." And then make that change!
When you use affirmations, always speak or think in the present, never the future. Don't say, "I will try to get another job."
That's defeatist at best. You want to say, "I am getting a new career."
You are! You're actively and currently working on steps to allow you to give your boss a pink slip. Action Steps That Refuse to Let Depression Resurface
The most important part of the law of attraction is when you start living life as if you already have what you want.
That means every action you take is that of a happy person, not someone mired in depression.
Would a happy person crawl up into a ball on their couch and cry for hours because they hate their job? No.
A happy person would actively take steps to change their life. And that's what you have to do.
You'll feel good when you're making changes. If things are simply staying the same, you'll see no light at the end of the tunnel and you'll feel hopeless about your future.
If you start picturing yourself at the same work desk with the same coworkers 10, 15 or 20 years later, stop yourself and picture yourself in a new job surrounded by the exact kind of people you enjoy.
Then go to work on making that come true. What would someone who is happy in his or her career be doing? They would be growing their expertise.
You could sign up for classes, take on tasks for free that give you experience - research - there are tons of options for you.
You are going to be looking into who you want to work for (and why).
You are going to be researching the company and what they're looking for so that you can possess many of those qualities they're looking for.
Make a plan of action and then use your mind and action steps to go from a state of depression to a state of utmost happiness because your life is morphing into exactly what you want it to be.
