Creating a memory: an investment in positive energy
Most of us spend a great deal of time wishing that things were better - our job, relationships, financial status, and even the weather!
However, things are already very good now... but if we don't pay attention to them, we run the risk of always living life as if things were rarely or never good enough.
The technique that I'm about to tell you about will help you to realize how good life is at present. This technique works also as an investment in positive energy for the future.
I call this technique "Creating a memory".
One night, when I was in my twenties and lived in a flat in London, I was lying in bed ready to sleep. I thought of my family back in Spain: my parents, my brother, and my dog.
The thought occurred to me that at some point they would die, and that that moment of my life in which they were alive and I could interact with them was unique and beautiful.
I decided to actively create a memory of that time of my life.
I immersed myself into the positive feelings as I thought of my family - love, care, understanding, sharing, appreciation. I then created a picture of my life at that point, as if it was a frame of the movie of my life...
I live in London, which is where I want to live at present; I love this city. I live with my partner, with whom sharing life is a marvellous adventure. I eat well; I have clothes to wear. I have a job which gives me enough money to live comfortably. My family in Spain is well and alive, and they love me. I feel inspired and motivated to express myself creatively...
I felt all the positive feelings as much as I could. "That's how this time of my life is like", I thought.
To create this positive memory of that time of my life, I became actively conscious of all the good things that were going on at that moment of my life, with the full knowledge that the moment was unique and would pass.
Eventually, my dog passed away. Some time after he died, I remembered the memory I had created that night, with all those good feelings attached - and I smiled, taken back to the full consciousness of having lived a beautiful time in my life, in which my dog was alive.
Needless to say, creating a positive memory will help you to feel good immediately. The added benefit though is the pay-off at a future time.
Rather than vaguely remembering a past moment of your life, you would fully get the picture of how beautiful and unique that moment was.
I find that creating a positive memory works only when you're already feeling good; if you're not feeling good now, then your priority at this point would be to just feel better.
I keep on using this technique as an investment in positive energy. Every now and then, I take just a few minutes to realize all the good that's going on in my life, and I "fix" the memory, knowing that some day it will generate positive feelings again.
