Bringing positive change in your life is a conscious choice, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. Many people want to grow and improve but don’t always have a specific goal in mind.
That’s no problem; just having the intention of seeking positive change can help propel you forward. According to the law of attraction, you will draw more positive experiences to yourself and foster change. Here are some ideas to get you started on the road to positive change.
1. Visit a Spiritual Consultant
Sometimes getting advice is the best way to bring positive change into your life. Having a consultation with a psychic or spiritual counselor can help you gain clarity about your path and what steps to take. Like the old saying goes, “sometimes you can’t see the forest through the trees.” Working with a teacher or guide can help you see the trees.

Meditation is another way to incorporate positive change. It has been shown that meditation has a number of positive benefits including stress relief, clearer thinking, greater peace and emotional awareness. Furthermore studies have shown that these benefits can influence physical health too, particularly improving blood pressure levels.
Meditation doesn’t have to be long and boring either. Just taking 5 or 10 minutes to sit and focus on your breathing is a start. Try a 15 minute walking meditation where you focus on your body’s movement. There are also many guided meditations available on CD, MP3 or even free ones on YouTube and the internet.
3. Start a Journal
Journal writing can also lead to positive change. Writing your thoughts and feelings in a journal is a safe and healthy way to express yourself. Nothing is off limits in your journal, even the negative things. Journaling can help you look at all aspects of yourself including those you want to improve.
By understanding and loving all parts of yourself you can grow. The journal can also assist you in tracking your progress. Be sure to keep your journal nearby at all times in case anything pops into your mind. You’ll want to capture those thoughts before they vanish. `
4. Read a Book
So much can be learned by reading books. Choose inspiring and uplifting works that resonate with you. Stories of people who have overcome hardships to achieve success are excellent choices. Poetry can also be appealing. Many people memorize favorite poems to give them courage and inspiration. Writings of great spiritual teachers are also highly recommended.
Some books you might want to check out are: Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl, You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay, and The Power of Positive Thinking by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale.
5. Embrace Living Things
Affirming life and embracing living things definitely brings about positive change. There are many ways to do this. Try gardening for example. By putting your hands in the dirt and growing things you are sharing in the life of Mother Earth. The plants you grow also represent your individual positive growth and change.
Another option is to adopt a pet. Caring for another living creature is truly life affirming. Having a relationship with a pet can be very a fulfilling and positive experience. If you’re not ready for the time and responsibility of a pet, consider hanging a birdfeeder or feeding birds at the park.
Bringing positive change in your life doesn’t have to be a challenging struggle. It can be a wondrous journey. Begin with small steps now and reap large rewards that will last a lifetime.
