One of the most effective ways to improve your vibration is to stand in the midst of an unwanted situation and ask yourself, What’s going right? It’s also very hard to do for someone who isn’t in practice. But getting into practice is easier than you think.
By establishing a simple bedtime habit you’ll begin practicing alignment.. Before going to sleep, look back at your day and ask, What went right?
There are three reasons that “what went right today” works so well:
- Distance but not too much
- Easier to access than the energy of “appreciations”
- Refocuses energy before the new day
Let’s take a closer look at each of these in turn.
1. Distance but not too much
When you’re preparing for sleep, your day is over. This gives you some distance. But you’re still in the same day so there’s not a lot of distance.
And yet, you are out of the contrast. The feelings of it may be vivid but the circumstances are not as strong as they were earlier in the day. Even if your contrast is a condition that remains unchanged at the end of the day (such as a diagnosis), there are fewer aggravations present. For example, if your situation is a diagnosis, there is not a doctor there at bedtime telling you scary statistics.
Waiting until the end of the day gives you enough distance to make this work easier to do. At the same time, it’s close enough proximity that you are working on the energy while it’s still fresh. You have a better chance of success at this point, if you try the “what went right” exercise rather than some other processes.
2. “What went right” is easier to access than the energy of “appreciations”
This new practice is not asking you to appreciate a rough day. Of course, you probably will end up doing exactly that. But a process of “Appreciations” is not what you’re aiming for.
You’re aiming considerably lower. Sometimes “what went right” is only what DIDN’T go wrong
“Even though all hell broke loose at work today and my car’s ‘check engine’ light came on while I was driving home — I happened to be two blocks from the garage at the time. And not only were they still open, but my mechanic was able to run a diagnostic as soon as I pulled up. He told me it was safe to drive my car until I could bring it in to get serviced. I had peace of mind for the drive home, and I pulled into my driveway at my usual time.”
When you get started with a thread of something that went right, keep following it. You’ll be surprised how much good fortune was woven into your day. By noticing that, you’re setting yourself up for tomorrow.
3. Refocus energy before the new day
Your vibrational state as you fall asleep is your vibrational state when you wake up. By taking bedtime to comb through your day to focus on what went right, you’re aligning your vibration and preparing to enter the new day in a new energy.
Although you can’t change the circumstance of what happened in the day just ended, you are guaranteeing an improved next day by refocusing your point of attraction.
What if I didn’t have a bad day?
Keep up the practice and you’ll start having lots of days that aren’t bad. “What went right” still works on good days. On those days it’s more like “Appreciations” but whatever name you call it, it’s still a splendid way to prepare yourself for sleep. As well as a solid way to keep focusing your energy for the days to come.
Establishing a bedtime practice of reviewing “what went right” in your day gives you some distance from your day but not too much. Looking for “what went right” can be an easier energy to access than “Appreciations.” And it’s a terrific way to clean up the current day’s energy so that you wake up into a new day with a new energy.
