The Power of Optimism

Posted by Jamie and Chaya | Posted on 06-08-2017

3 to 1…Apparently, that’s the magic ratio that will lead you to flourishing in life instead of languishing.
Many studies have recently been showing that if you want to be truly, deeply joyful, creative, and open that you have to have at least 3 positive thoughts or feelings for every one negative thought or feeling.
It sounds easy, doesn’t it? Sure, with the Power of Optimism flowing freely through your being, it would be.

But, if you’ve succumbed to all the fear in the news, or if life has just knocked you around one too many times recently, perhaps this has gotten out of balance making it hard for you to easily access your Power of Optimism.

Here’s what it might look like if the negative thoughts are winning in your life:

  • At end of day, you feel drained and exhausted. You go home, flop in the chair and fret about all the challenges of the day, and worry about the new ones you’ll likely face tomorrow.
  • Everything just feels so heavy, soooo difficult. There seems to be roadblocks at every turn.
  • You find yourself telling everyone you talk to about how rotten everything is – how stressed you are, how your mother calls up to complain all the time, how your dog pooped on the floor yesterday, what a mess the political scene is….
  • You’re just not having any fun. Everywhere you look, you see more reasons to give up. “Life sucks,” is your mantra.
  • You’re whining about never getting ahead in your career. Clients don’t stick with you, your boss doesn’t give you a raise, people just don’t seem to want to work with you.

We’ve all been there, but have you gotten so used to the negativity and pessimism in your mind that you don’t realize how deeply it’s affecting you?


Do you want to remember the good stuff
or the bad?


A good friend of ours was just showing us her family photo album a while back. There were wonderful pictures of her kids and herself and her husband, in all their ages and stages.

There were photos of them laughing, playing at the beach, huddling for warmth in their tent on a camping trip, roasting marshmallows over a fire, opening presents on Christmas morning. To us there seemed to be a lot of joy and many great memories.

This simple experience of looking at these photos turned into a little healing moment for our friend though….she told us how she barely remembered all of those experiences! That when she thinks of all the years of the kids growing up, she remembers the fights, the stress, the car shuttling in traffic, the messy house, the times they got in trouble at school or had their painful heartbreaks.

She remembered the negative stuff very clearly. But all the joy, the positive experiences, the laughter, the play – that was all fuzzy. (Good thing she’s got the pictures to remind her!)

Of course, our friend knows about the Vibrancy Path, so the next thing she said was, “Boy, I think I really need to strengthen my Power of Optimism! For all these years, my attention has been captured by the negative experiences, instead of focusing on all the positive ones. Wow, how did that happen?”


Positivity can help you live up to 10 years
longer!  Use the Power of Optimism
that’s right at your fingertips.


As with all the Vibrancy Powers, this is a frequency in your energy field, just waiting to be called upon. It’s an energy that you can tap into to help you focus on the good in your life. Heal thyself of pessimism and see what life has in store for you! You will:

  • Have plenty of energy to sink your teeth into life, because you’re not pouring it down the drain of misery.
  • Discover that, no matter what people say, life can actually be fun! The good stuff has always been there, but now you’ll be able to really see it and feel it.
  • Realize that when you look on the bright side, you see more options and opportunities for ways to make things even better.
  • Find that you’re getting that raise or magnetizing more clients who just can’t wait to spend time with you and your sunny disposition.
  • Accentuate the positive – and it’ll rub off on others. Everyone around you will start noticing what’s good about life, and the positivity will multiply.

2 Ways to Tap into your Power of Optimism: 


#1: Say or sing this affirmation until you believe it with your entire being:

“I direct my thoughts toward the positive.”

#2: Take 7 – 21 drops of Optimism Vibrancy Essence daily. This remedy will align you with the energetic frequency of Optimism, and help you open up to all that is good in your life.


Take those lemons and make
lots of fabulous lemonade!
