3 Reasons Why We Keep Attracting The Same Problems In Life

Have you had the experience of dealing with the same problem again and again?  Because the Law of Attraction governs our lives, our thoughts and feelings are what create our reality, and this includes our problems!  Sometimes we have a negative focus that has become so strong it causes us to attract the same problem repeatedly.

So, why might we have a negative focus like this? Below are three common habits that cause problems to repeat themselves through negative attention.  If you find you find yourself experiencing the same problem again and again, check to see if any of these behaviors are at play:


1. Talking or complaining about the problem: 

For many of us, this is the strongest reason why we attract problems repeatedly.  Most of us talk a lot, and we tend to tell the same story again and again.

Complaining about a back problem, a bad relationship or a rude boss can become addictive, and this generates a lot of extra magnetism for these negative circumstances.

The good news is that it’s fairly easy to stop complaining.   At first, biting one’s tongue might be a bit uncomfortable, but with a little bit of practice it is easy to limit the negative talk.

2. Obsessively thinking about the problem: 

While most people in society believe that worrying is critical for our survival, nothing could be further from the truth.  When we worry about our problems we generate more momentum for them, and we find ourselves further and further away from the solutions we need. 

Though many of us understand that negative thinking causes problems, changing our thoughts is still often easier said than done.  Our thoughts move at a very quick pace and come without much effort, so “thought control” can be a bit tricky.

It is important to remember that even though you are able to change many of your intentional thoughts, you will have still have some unwanted unintentional thoughts here and there, and that’s ok.  A few negative thoughts won’t ruin your life, so please give yourself some leniency on this one, especially in the beginning.

With that being said, when we find ourselves completely obsessing about a problem, we can do some deliberate distraction, and this can have a very profound effect over the situation at hand.

The next time you find yourself worried or anxious about a problem, simply tell yourself something along the lines of “I can solve this problem later, but right now I am going to focus on something a bit more uplifting.”  Then, find an activity to do that brings a a little more joy into your life.

You could watch a funny movie, call a good friend, or practice a hobby that makes you happy.  You could also listen to uplifting music or do some light exercise.

Distraction is a great habit to develop because it gets you pointed in the right direction vibrationally.  If each time you find yourself obsessing, you take a step back and distract yourself into a higher vibration, you will generate a habit that helps you bounce back from negative thoughts quickly in all areas of your life.

With practice, it will become your default behavior to distract yourself when your thoughts become too negative.  When positive distraction becomes your automatic response to obsessive negative thinking, you will see a powerful change in the quality of your reality.

  1. I tried to private message, didn’t work, my apologies. Why does the mind obsess? Because it is attempting to”process” something from the past, whether it is one second or one decade. Granted, the mind is a very powerful entity in its own right, and yet body memory has more power than the mind, wouldn’t you agree. The body “feels” everything and the mind can only process so much and until it can process the stored energy of the plethora of feelings it acquired it is doomed ,hahaha. It has been proven that when the vagus nerve is stimulated the mind/brain relaxes. The major learned flaw about the vagus nerve is “it starts in the brain”. Why then do we have feelings and sayings like; butterflies in the stomach, so nervous I could relieve my stomach contents in this moment. We can do so many things; meditation, coloring, gardening, drugs, drinking….distraction……..and yet those body memories still exist until they are released. Releasing doesn’t come from the brain it comes from the body: bowel movements, tears and the like. Apologies about the plug here, however I feel it is time we start sharing different tools. It is so important to disengage the brain when releasing the body. Pain is the body’s way of shutting down the higher function of the the brain. That being said “If You Can FEEL IT You Can HEAL IT”, is quite a different approach. We feel the physical discomfort/pain, some may need a truck to back over them and others may only need a gentle reminder, to get us out of the brain. It is not about the INCIDENT it is about the feelings stored in the body. The book is very basic and very simple with many illustrations. It is a start in a different direction and the techniques described in the book can be applied with EVERY other modality.
