The more we learn about using the Law of Attraction consciously in our lives, the more we understand that our emotional state determines our vibrational frequency, which attracts the quality of experiences we have. With this knowledge comes the understanding that feeling good (happy, joyful, enthusiastic, optimistic) will attract more of the same into our lives.
But is it really possible to feel good all the time? How do we deal with life's little (and not so little) annoyances? Are we supposed to live in a state of denial and take on a Pollyanna attitude? What about the devastating life experiences that shake us to our core, such as the death of a loved one or a natural disaster? How is it possible to remain in a positive emotional state when laboring under feelings of grief and despair?
The short answer is: it's not only difficult, but also detrimental to us to do so.
Our feelings are real. Trying to deny them or smooth them over with blanket statements of positive focus won't help us resolve them at a core level. Instead, it's important to honor our feelings and work through them in a positive and productive manner. How? By admitting that we feel rotten, and allowing ourselves to feel that way. It's okay to feel angry, sad, or hurt when something awful happens!
The best gift we can give ourselves is the opportunity to feel our feelings, genuinely and deeply. When you feel sad about something, let yourself feel sad. Embrace the feelings, and move through them. Write in a journal about why you're sad, and express the feelings rising up within you. Write out your rage, your pain, your grief. Scream your fury to the universe. It is only by moving through your feelings that you can come out of them eventually.
Having said that, we must also reach a point when we choose to step out of our misery and feel hopeful again. We must eventually turn our focus to thoughts of healing and peace. Continuing to stay mired in pain for an excessive amount of time can be just as detrimental as denying our pain altogether. What is considered an "excessive" amount of time? Only you can say. Your grief process might last a few days, or a few years. Simply stay tuned in to yourself, your thoughts, your emotions, and you'll know when you're beginning to move out of the grief process.
What about the smaller annoyances we deal with on a daily basis? This is the more common struggle for most of us. How do we stay positive when facing traffic jams, rude people, misbehaving children, inconsiderate spouses, demanding bosses, financial challenges, and repeated feelings of frustration that we just can't seem to get it together?
Though these experiences seem overwhelming, they are actually the most simple to deal with if you shift your perspective slightly. The best tool I've discovered for dealing with frustration is the ability to choose what I focus on.
Let's use an example to demonstrate this concept. Let's say you're running late for work and you have an important meeting to attend when you get there. You dash to your car, praying for a quick, easy ride to work so you can be on time for your meeting. Shortly after you leave home, you run into a big traffic jam. Cars are moving slower than molasses, and you sit there behind the wheel feeling angry and frustrated because you know you're going to be late for your meeting, which will bring on some unpleasant comments from your boss, and probably ruin your chances for the promotion you were hoping to get. The more you follow this line of thought, the more angry and frustrated you will become. So what can you do to turn this situation around?
Here are the techniques I've found most helpful in frustrating circumstances:
1) Intend a different outcome. Remember that your focus will attract a corresponding result! You're already stuck in the traffic jam, so denying it would be futile. However, does the existence of a traffic jam have to bring about the negative consequences you envisioned? Not necessarily. You are making assumptions about what this experience will mean to you. If you instead choose to make it mean something else, you can actually change the outcome. How? Try affirming something like this: "Even though traffic seems to be moving slowly, I KNOW I will arrive at work exactly on time. The universe is working with me to create the most beneficial outcome possible." The trick is to put your full faith into this affirmation, and not let yourself become filled with doubt or worry. Then, any number of things could happen to support your new belief. Traffic might begin moving more quickly because the obstruction is cleared, or you might still arrive at work a few minutes late only to discover that your boss and several other coworkers were also late because of the traffic jam, so the meeting begins later than planned.
2) Choose to feel good anyway! This is a little more challenging, but the more you do it the better you get at it. Simply choose to turn your thoughts to a more positive place. Rather than dwelling on your frustration, find something to feel good about and focus on it. Think about your loved ones, pets, or friends. Recall a happy memory that makes you laugh out loud. Carry some uplifting audio books in your car so you can listen to them when you need a boost. Turn your attention firmly away from thoughts that increase your worry and irritation, and toward thoughts that make you feel happy.
It seems difficult to overcome negative thoughts and feelings, but it's really as simple as choosing your focus moment to moment, day after day. The more practice you get at feeling good overall, the more you'll find yourself able to step calmly over minor irritations, and deal effectively with bigger issues.

I wonder some nights if there is enough abundance in my life. I struggle with thoughts that I could do better, be better, that there could be more in my everyday life. Some days I wake up with concerns about success and if I can obtain success.
The connection between the mind and success isn't a recent discovery, nor is it a debated mystery among the scientific community. It is solid, proven fact that individuals who are able to maintain a mindset of success will go on to reap great rewards in their life, while those who approach each endeavor with the certainty of failure are doomed to crash and burn. Is this a self fulfilling prophecy? Is it simply coincidence? Or is there something more insubstantial at work? What Is The Law Of Attraction? The most debated point regarding the Law of Attraction is what, exactly, it is. Is it a mystical way of thought, or is there a scientific foundation to its existence? Is it fact or fiction? The details surrounding the Law of Attraction differ depending on who you talk to. Those who firmly support the theory of the Law of Attraction and its ability to bring abundance into your life will tell you that the Law of Attraction is based on the ebb and flow of positive and negative energy in the universe.
What exactly is attraction? Is it a mystical way of thought, or is there a scientific foundation to its existence? Is it fact or fiction? The details surrounding the Law of Attraction differ depending on who you talk to. Those who firmly support the theory of the Law of Attraction and its ability to bring abundance into your life will tell you that the Law of Attraction is based on the ebb and flow of positive and negative energy in the universe. Imagine if you will that the air you breathe is filled with hundreds of molecules, and along with representing different elements these molecules are also positively and negatively charged. When a large quantity of negatively charged energy accumulates it has negative effects, whereas an accumulation of positively charged energy will have a positive effect. Now, go one step farther and imagine that you have the ability to direct these positive and negative energies-subconsciously, of course.
The Law of Attraction states that when you approach a challenge from a positive mindset you will draw positive energy to you. This positive energy will the serve as a string pulling an entire network of other strings that makes up the universe, bringing an abundance of good things to your doorstep.
