7 Ways to Create Positive Energy in Your Life


Positive energy is such a vague word. Constantly thrown around

by self-help gurus and motivational speakers, this term has nearly lost its meaning. But according to Tanaaz Chubb, author and creator of Forever Conscious, positive energy is much more than a word; it’s based in the very reality of the universe.

In her book, “The Power of Positive Energy,” she writes that our souls “are made up of pure energy. This energy is the same energy that makes up everything in the entire Universe. You are simply the Universe expressing itself as a human.”

And what’s more, we can become aware of this energy, take charge of it, and use it to change your own life.

The truth is this: positive energy doesn’t just happen. It’s cultivated. And Tanaaz Chubb is here to show you how to generate beneficial outcomes in your life through the creation of positive energy, freeing yourself from negativity and fear in the process.

It’s not as difficult as it sounds. All it takes is a little time, willpower, and the willingness to maintain an open mind. Let's take a dive into Chubb’s book and find out 7 great ways to create positive energy in your life.

Awaken to Yourself

The first step in cultivating positive energy is awakening yourself to that energy in the first place. It’s time to open your eyes.

You may have a nagging sense of unfulfilled purpose. Or perhaps you have a concern that you’re not truly in control of your life, and you’d like to be. The awakening process begins once you latch on to the desire to take ownership of your life.

Start asking questions. Why are you here on Earth? What’s your purpose? What brings you joy? Why do put up with being unhappy with the status quo?

These questions are likely to be painful, at first, because they reveal insecurities, fears, and flaws which are holding you back. But don’t let that stop you from awakening!

Chubb writes that by “aligning with your true, authentic self, you realize that your only purpose in this life is to be true to who you are and that everything about your life is perfect and just as it should be.”

You’re more than a body. You’re a part of an entire universe of energy, and within it, you have a place and purpose. Now that you’ve become aware of that, allow this inner spark to flare up into the passionate, motivated flame that comes with embracing your true self.

Embrace Self-Love

The next step toward creating positive energy in your life lies in embracing the love of the self.

This is often the most difficult step. Many of us spend much of our lives at war with ourselves, tearing down everything from our looks to our intelligence to our level of success.

Chubb writes that many of us fall into the trap of thinking that we need certain material things or personality traits to lead a happy, positive life.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The secret to positive energy lies in realizing that you don’t need things. You need to be true to your authentic self, and love that self for who he or she is. There’s nothing you need to gain—you already have everything you need to be happy!

This means putting yourself first. Chubb writes that while this may strike you as selfish, it’s really not. After all, how can you be of service to others if you’re already drained from the act of maintaining a façade? How can you show love and affection when your actions come from not from your own desires, but from the presumed desires of others?

Do love yourself, begin to redirect negative thoughts about yourself and replace them with positive ones. If you’re prone to calling yourself dumb, for example, stop that thought as it occurs and switch it out for something more positive. Tell yourself that you are smart, and that you are skilled at many things.

Stop limiting yourself by beginning to love yourself, and you’ll be well on your way toward a life marked by positive energy.

Discover Your Purpose

Your purpose isn’t something you chase. It’s something that’s already inside you, and that’s why it’s so vital to both know and love yourself.

But this also means a difficult truth for some: your purpose also is not a job title. So many of us identify with our jobs to the point where we have trouble separating our true selves from our employment.

So what happens when you lose that job? Poof. There goes your purpose.

But when your life’s goals stem from who you are inside, you can carry your purpose with you through any of life’s circumstances.

To help you find your purpose, first take stock of your natural talents. Finding out what you are great at can help you find your place in the world.

Next, figure out what brings you joy. Or, as Chubb writes, ask yourself: “What makes me feel alive?” Is it being creative? Helping others? Figure out what works for you and turn it into a concrete goal, such as “Write three blog posts a week,” or “Begin psychology graduate program.”

Break this goal up into small, actionable steps and dedicate time to them. Believe in yourself—your purpose is within you, and even if you aren’t able to attain this particular goal, take that purpose and apply it in a different way. There are many ways to be creative, for instance. There are many ways to help people.

You’ll find your way. Believe that you can, and you will.

Use Your Intuition

ntuition, according to Chubb, is simply “a strong feeling or sense of knowing,” that receives input from both your inner self and the energy of the universe.

But intuition doesn’t just start out strong and finely tuned. We must develop it.

The first step toward developing intuition lies in embracing stillness—we must learn to quiet the racing thoughts which crowd our minds so that we can learn to listen to the quiet voice of our own intuition.

Chubb recommends activities like meditation, journaling, and gardening to help you cultivate a quiet mind. Practice this daily.

Next, when you do hear from your intuition, you must trust it—when you do, you strengthen your intuition. Don’t let your conscious mind get in the way of this subconscious process.

Don’t let fear get in the way, either. You can tell fear from intuition—it is insistent, repetitive, confusing, and emotional. Intuition, on the other hand, feels definite, supportive, and is centered around the present moment rather than the future.

Intuition can guide you toward the people and things which will bring positivity into your life. Learn to trust it.

Invite Guidance

Chubb writes that “At the core of the Universe is a pure unconditional love that is so strong and so powerful that even the word 'love' can’t really capture it.” This love supports and protects, and when you tap into it for guidance, you can receive its benefits.

It can be difficult to heed the signs of the universe—they can be quite subtle. But if you learn to look, you’ll have a new source of guidance that will steer you toward a more positive life.

According to Chubb, some signs of guidance from the universe include coming up against constant and uncanny roadblocks as you pursue a goal, strange coincidences, a chance encounter with an animal that seems prophetic, and timely messages from other people.

Anything that seems to be insistently shepherding you in a certain direction may be a bit of divine guidance. If this seems to be the case in your own life, use your intuition to discern the signs from simple coincidence, and you’ll have yet another path to positivity.

Get Creative

As a part of the highly creative universe, you are highly creative, as well, and you can use this creativity to shape the world around you in a positive way.

Chubb recommends thinking of yourself as co-creator, along with the universe. While you can’t control every aspect of your life, you do have a say. You shape your experience right along with those outside forces which act on you.

You can do this through the power of visualization. Close your eyes and imagine a meaningful situation that you would like to go well. Imagine everything going perfectly, and then imagine feeling grateful for this good outcome. Shed any doubts or fears you may have.

Keep doing this each day, and when the event comes, you’ll be much more likely to help create the positive outcome you were visualizing.

If nothing else, realize this: your thoughts become the lens through which you see reality. You create the world around you by changing the way you see it—choose an optimistic view. Choose hope.

Create positivity.

Be Positive

Reprogramming yourself after a lifetime of negative energy is difficult, and takes time. With patience, though, you can come to embrace positivity as an essential part of yourself.

This doesn’t make you naïve or silly. “Happy people,” as Chubb says, “don’t have perfect lives with no troubles; happy people have just learned how to prevent their troubles from getting the better of them.”

To be positive, you must own your life, including your failings, your triumphs, your peaks and plateaus. You must actively reach for happy thoughts, no matter how difficult this may be.

But don’t stop there. To remain positive, you must also continually manage your expectations. When we hold onto preconceived notions of how the world should work rather than accepting how it does work, we only set ourselves up for disappointment. By accepting the world—and your own personal self—as it really is, you set yourself up for positivity, instead.

Above all, you deserve a positive life. You deserve to be loved. Realize this, and good things will come to you.

Live an Inspired Life

When you live a life marked by positive energy, people notice. Everything from your wardrobe, to the look in your eyes, to your aura will change for the better.

But the most important change will happen within. Embracing positivity will retrain your mind to be your best friend and greatest advocate, rather than your enemy. You’ll find that you truly can shape your own reality by the power of positive thinking.

Let go of all those small moments of negativity, and you’ll suddenly see life for what it is: beautiful.
