What Is A Media Fast?

Implementing a media fast is a common recommendation as a technique for learning to more effectively work with law of attraction. In a media fast, you give up all newspaper, radio and television for a block of time, typically 30 days.

The idea of the media fast is to avoid the constant bombardment of negative messages you are typically receiving throughout the day. Think about it ... rarely do we read or hear a good news story. The vast majority of the news is about the bad or unfortunate stuff that happens, whether it be the latest war on whatever, another homicide, an unfortunate accident, etc.

This has a not so subtle impact on our minds. Negative messages tend to make us feel bad. It draws our attention onto the things we don't want in the world. And that then leads us to begin to naturally feel fearful of what might happen to us or our loved ones. Pretty soon we're wondering "what's become of this world".

They leave us prone to act out relative to what we see, hear or feel. Our entire focus is shifted to the world of chaos around us, rather than the world of love within us. We are then most definitely no longer in vibrational alignment.

That's why a media fast can be so effective. It's a way of insulating ourselves from the constant negative bombardment thereby protecting our vibration. By avoiding those negative messages, we are able to focus more clearly on what we want, where we're going, and enjoy the moment.

And when it comes to losing touch with what's happening in the world, the important stuff still gets around. We'll still hear about it.

So if you find you are having trouble maintaining a high vibration, start to cut out many of the negative messages that may be dragging you down. Probably the easiest place to start is with a media fast.
