10 Things You Can Do Today to Attract Positive Energy

Written by: Sen - CalmDownMind.com

Every moment you have a choice – to be at peace or to be in resistance.

When you are at peace, you attract positive energy and when you resist you create negative vibes that reflect back on your being. It’s a simple choice that you need to make.

It’s not your boss, colleagues, parents, ex or the traffic, but your own perception that creates stress and negative energy. Circumstances are neutral. You will generate positive vibes when your inner state is one of alignment and congruence, instead of being in resistance.

Here are a few tips to attract positive energy into your life by staying in touch with your inner peace and stillness.

1. Start Your Day With Meditation


Any form of meditation is helpful but it’s best to keep it simple.

Just practice the meditation of becoming aware of your presence. You don’t have to sit in any strident posture; just relax and feel your consciousness or presence in the midst of the thoughts and emotions.

If you want, you can also consider chanting a mantra like ‘OM’ or ‘AUM’. Focus your complete attention on this sound and the vibration it creates in your body. This is a very powerful practice that creates a positive vibe throughout the body.

2. Listen to Uplifting Music

The right music can heal and raise our vibrations.

Create a playlist of songs that have a positive affect on you. Listen to this playlist every morning immediately after waking up or while getting ready for the day.

Dance or move your body to the rhythm if you feel like. This is a great way to get your share of exercise for the day and in doing so, shake off that lethargic/draining energy from your body. If you don’t feel like dancing, do some shaking Qigong (also known as ‘shaking the tree’).

3. Treat Everyone the Way You Want to be Treated

Treat everyone equally

A day is easily ruined when you start holding resentment against someone. Know that everything is oneness and though we appear as different forms, everything is the manifestation of the one true essence.

When you see others as yourself you will not harbor negative feelings and in turn your attitude will attract positive energy from the people around you.

4. Let Go of Your Need to Control

Let go quote

Life is a flux and its nature is change. The more you resist the more a particular situation will persist.

Whenever you try to control a life situation, you will feel stressed out and this will generate a lot of negative energy.

Just imagine life to be a raging river, does it serve any purpose to struggle? Wouldn’t it be much more relaxing and peaceful if you just let go and allow yourself to float with the flow? People who stay surrendered and relaxed generate a lot of positive energy and attract the grace of life.

5. Learn to See the Positive in Every Situation

Know that good and bad are just perceptions created in the conditioned mind. In reality every life situation is pure grace and is the manifestation of the one truth – call it God or Spirit or Energy. When you see every situation with this innocence, it will reveal its grace to you.

6. Visualize a Peaceful Life

Visualize a positive life

Your mind might be addicted to negative thinking; most minds are. You will have to consciously break out of this addiction if you want to attract good energy within you.

Stay conscious and see your mind churning out fearful images. Now, instead of giving energy to these thoughts divert your attention to visualizing a peaceful flow of life. Envision feeling calm and fulfilled. You will be amazed at the positive vibes you feel in your body.

7. Stop Worrying About the Future

Worry has not served any purpose to this date for anyone. Whatever has to happen will happen, there is nothing you will achieve by worrying about it. In fact what you worry about will not even happen most of the times. So why waste energy dwelling on worries?

You are unconsciously creating a lot of negative energy inside you which is harmful to your whole being. Just plan practically and leave the rest to life.

8. Drop the Resentment Within

Drop the resentment within

The past is past, it has no reality than as a memory trace. Can you live in such simplicity? After all if you don’t continuously think up a bad memory you will not feel any resentment within. So just learn to forgive and move on. There is a lot positive energy in the simple act of forgiveness.

9. Stay as the Presence Instead of the Ego

The present moment holds a lot of power within. You can tap into this power by learning to experience the present moment fully. As Eckhart Tolle puts it, ‘Be here fully!’.

Whatever task you are doing, try to become fully conscious of it. Be conscious of your surroundings, your thoughts and your actions. Of-course you cannot be present all the time, but do this exercise whenever you feel the need to relax and attract some good vibes.

10. Be in Nature

Tune into the stillness of nature

A simple way to attract good energy is to be in nature. Just look at the nature around you for a while. A tree or a flower; it just rests in stillness and moves with the wind. There is a peace that radiates from their being. This peace will ignite your own inner true nature of stillness.

You can also consider having some indoor plants. According to color psychology green is the color of balance and harmony. Which is why, having indoor plants can bring a sense of peace to your inner being.

In addition to purifying the air of toxins some plants are known to aid the flow of positive energy as per Feng Shui.

Plants such as Bamboo palm (reed palm), Snake plant, Spider plant, Peace Lily, Aloe Vera, Devil’s Ivy, Azalea, Chinese Evergreen, English Ivy and Broad-leaf lady palm among others are an excellent option.

Note: Some plants like Peace Lily and English Ivy can be toxic to pets. So if you have pets, make sure to cross check before buying.

11. Feel the Spaciousness in Your Body

Just close your eyes and try to feel your body from within. You will be surprised at the spaciousness of your body. It feels like a lot of empty space with a few sensations here and there. This inner body realization will free up any stored negative energy. After a few moments of inner body realization you will feel light and at ease.

These are some simple techniques to attract positive energy into your being. This list was in no particular order, but there is a reason why meditation is at the top. Constant practice of meditation can help you gain better control over your mind and the thoughts it generates. This can thereby help you stay mindful and in the present moment, eat and think consciously, release negative emotions and a lot more.

  4. I am on a quest to be more than what is intended mentally and physically in a being. The day and age that we live in is created to bring us down as spiritual beings. These words have helped give a deeper understanding of where my path lies. Thank you.

  5. I am a student and just a few minutes ago my mom told me that I have a lot of negative energy due to my sad mood, worry for future and unhappiness. I always argue and try to attract people to me for without concern for their opinions. I always try to blame others and tease my teachers and feel jealous if someone else has scored better than me in anything. (I feel so relaxed sharing with all you about my negatives-a part of my negative energy has gone away!). I will try to incorporate these into my life and make it better. Thank You

  8. Thank you so much after reading this I feel good and my negative thinking is getting far from me.

  9. I unconsciously go into my mind too. Thanks this is a helpful article. I am vibrating positive energy but it takes practice. What I found hard is you got to not realize your positiveness because anything you realize is a mention of the mind which makes it negative.

  10. My life has changed so much now that I meditate daily actually, it has become more of a marriage. My mediation is prayer; it’s just conversation with God. Nothing religious or anything; it’s just talking to God like I talk to my best friend (but better) don’t tell my BF. I go for a walk and let everything that is bothering me out of my mind,body. I let go and let God; amazing things have been happening in my life. I wish I had room to tell a story here. Amazing, unexplainable things! It’s something supernatural and out of my control! I guess I just let go of my issues and in faith move forward reaching my goals, expecting great results to come my way. I welcome good things into my life. Thanks for posting this. I can relate to much of it.

  11. I feel drained of energy when I am in the company of others. I think it is because of too much mind activity. I do realize that I tend to go into my mind when in the company of others perhaps as a defensive mechanism. I tried staying present today but found it very difficult. I tend to go back into my mind and into the defensive mode even without even realizing it. But I think it takes some getting used to. Thank you for this article.

  12. As I question myself today after reading this article, I have realized that there is a lot of resentment within me that I have never completely addressed. I have a lot of negative energy inside about a lot of things happening around me that I need to convert into positive energy. For instance, I have realized that I have ill feelings towards a few people in my life because of what they did to me in the past. I have also realized that once I focus on these feelings they tend to melt away and I no longer feel the hate. I feel a sense of peace and lightness. At-least for the time being. I believe if I keep practicing this, the positive feelings inside me will last longer and longer. Thank you!

  13. Thank you for this article. For the past few weeks, I have been feeling very negative with no sense of aliveness. Reading this article made me feel good. I will try to follow the meditation, positive visualization and being present in times my energy goes negative.

  14. Very nice points mentioned. I hope to follow them and will be in a better state than earlier. Thanks!

  15. Thank you for your wonderful and positive thoughts. Currently I am going through a very bad patch of life. Please give me some more ideas for handling my life peacefully with success.

  16. Hi, I always had the temptation to keep everything under my control. It was a principle of life I had unnecessarily forced upon myself. This surely had caused a lot of unpleasant moments and negative thoughts in my mind. After reading this, I feel much more relaxed now. Thanks a million!

  17. I can’t tell you how many times I turn to this article — it really has been the best article I have ever read. Every ounce of it is so true. If only I could live it more. I try — hence, the reminding. But thank you so much for this. I try and let it serve as the foundation of how I live.

  18. After reading this and other articles on this site, I realized that knowingly or unknowingly I have been holding a lot of negative energy inside me in the form of resentment towards my childhood, my parents and lately my ex girlfriend. I was focusing on all the negatives that happened to me since my childhood and never on the positive in turn feeding that negative energy to stay alive and attracting similar people into my life. I have started meditating and I am trying my best to change my outlook towards my past and present. I no longer want to feel negative. I want to attract all the positives that life has to offer.

  19. Wow, this is really good. I closed my eyes and felt the inside of my body, my heart beating, my lungs breathing and it felt amazing. So relaxed and relieved! I don’t know why I did not do this before. Thank you for these tips!

  20. These are relay excellent guideline for life, nature is biggest storage of positive energy, I think we have to learn from nature and to be like nature.. thanks for such valuable guidance.

  21. Just what I always needed. Now peace radiates from my inner core. Negativity is a thing of the past. Now I dwell in the present, I am unshakeable like the roots of a tree. The spaciousness of my body is beyond my wildest imaginings!

  22. I was feeling a sense of negativity inside me but reading this post made me feel at ease. I do feel that I have this intense need to remain responsible for everything and keep everything in control and this possibly is the reason why I feel so drained of energy. I am going to try to let go from here on. Thank you!

  23. I think the simplest way to attract positive energy is the practice of being in the present moment also known as mindfulness. Yoga and meditation can definitely help. Check out if you have a mindfulness instructor nearby and join it. It’s highly beneficial.

  24. Very nice points. I recently started meditating and it has helped me a lot. We tend to do so many things just to find happiness and forget that the positive energy that we keep seeking lies within us. All you need to do is focus on the inner self and positive things are bound to happen.

  25. I have this tendency to always anticipate negative events and so I stay in this place of anxiety all the time. I almost always worried about my future. It’s tough for me to make the transition of letting go of the worrying and just focus on the present moment, but I can see the sense in it.

  26. Being in the nature is extremely helpful in releasing negative energy within. The stillness that is present in the nature helps to bring an inner stillness in the mind, and it helps let go of restless thoughts.
