Don’t focus on poverty or death, because whatever you focus on, you magnify—even if your focus is an effort to keep it away from you. If you’re afraid of contracting a skin disease, for example, and you’re often focused on this skin disease and worrying that you might come down with it, even looking up symptoms and cures online, your focus is constantly on that disease.
You are attracting it. Whatever you give your attention, you’ll grow. If you pay attention to negativity, that’s what will bloom in your life. If, for example, you’re often lamenting the fact that you don’t have as much money as you wish you did, you’ll continue to not have enough money—and you may even find yourself with less money, over time, because your insistence on believing you’ll never have enough of it will lead you to make choices that result in your never having enough of it. Your focus, your attention, invites the object of your attention into your life.
It’s popular to think fighting something is a way of keeping it at bay, because—in your mind—you’re pushing it away, but your fighting only brings more of the undesirable element to you. Imagine, for instance, that you’re trying to quit smoking: if, after smoking that last cigarette, you constantly think, “I won’t have a cigarette, I won’t have a cigarette, I won’t have a cigarette,” the only thing on your mind is a cigarette. If, on the other hand, activities occupy what used to be smoking time, and cravings are recognized but then cast aside and ignored, the obsession with a cigarette and the likelihood of that cigarette being smoked are all but eliminated.
Focus on God’s love. The love that brought Jesus to the cross of Calvary to die for your sins. What a great love that is available for you and me. Let go and declare freedom from whatever is keeping your mind hostage in fears and worries.
