“A wise old man was talking to a boy and said, ‘There are two wolves always fighting inside me. One is filled with anger, hate, jealousy, shame, and lies. The other wolf is filled with love, joy, truth, and peace. This battle rages inside all men.’ The boy thought for a moment and asked: ‘Which wolf will win?’ The old man answered: ‘The one you feed.’” By unknown
This story seems to pop up in different forms a lot lately. It indicates that we have a choice about how we want to be. Go back to the law of attraction concepts and it teaches us that we get what we give. Whatever you give energy to (what you feed) you will attract. Whatever you feel, you will attract. There are a lot of powerful words in this quote and each evokes a strong feeling, at for me. Feelings are energy.
Do you see where I’m going with this? Choose what you want to feel and you will attract more situations that evoke those feelings. It isn’t a chicken and egg conundrum. To put it another way, any given situation you can think of doesn’t have emotions. The emotions are how you react to these situations. If you think about it, you often have different intensities of feelings or different feelings altogether for similar situations. Only you are reacting differently. For example, when you do something for the first time, you may feel free or anxiety, but with repetition that feeling is replaced with comfort or confidence. The “something” you are doing is the same every time; only your feelings have changed. So, we have the ability to react differently to situations. Chose how to react and the situation will feel differently. Choose good feelings and similar situations will also start to feel good. You will be building habit to see things more positively, so you will feel like you are attracting more positive situations.
