Good vibes: It's the Woodstock generation’s mantra that has been passed down to the festival junkies of the 21st century. It may seem like a bunch of hippie hullabaloo, but what if the concept of good vibes could actually change your life?
No, you don't have to live out of an old 70s van, dreadlock your hair or smoke weed every day to make it happen. However, you might just want to do so. It turns out the concept of good vibes actually has a scientific and philosophic background.
It's basically a modern way of explaining the law of attraction, a philosophical movement that dates back to 1901. The law of attraction states, in simple terms, that the energy you put into the universe will dictate the world around you.
So, in theory, if you simply think positive thoughts and send positive vibes out into the universe, your life will be better.
It may sound like a bunch of flower-child nonsense, but think about it: How many times have you stubbed your toe getting out of bed, or spilled your coffee in the morning and had your whole day go downhill from there? It's the law of attraction.
If you wake up and sh*tty things are already happening to you, you're more likely to be pissed about everything as you move forward with your day. As you stub your toe or spill your coffee, you're sending negative energy out into the universe. After that, the universe will respond to your negative energy with more negativity. So, you might be asking, where's the science? How on earth can we be expected to believe that we can control the world around us simply with our thoughts?
Depending on the frequency of thoughts you put out, the universe will give you an answer, like two magnets slowly growing closer and closer. Your thoughts and your energy will attract the kind of world in which you will live. It's important to be aware of your state of mind when it comes to the law of attraction.
They key is to maintain a positive state of mind. When you have a brighter outlook on life and your future, it only makes sense that a bright future will follow.
