Turning a Negative Thought into a Positive

Our thoughts are powerful energy forms that we set loose into the universal energy field. Carelessly chosen in a fit of anger negative thoughts are damaging to the energy field of the person transmitting, the energy field of the person receiving, while polluting the universal energy field.

Science today can demonstrate the deleterious effects of negative thoughts on humans, animals, plants, water, and all living matter.

We have the power to choose our thoughts by focusing our attention on the positive. We have all heard of the option of looking at the wine glass as half full or half empty. Well, we have the power to choose always to focus on the wine that is in the glass, rather than the wine we suppose is not.

When faced with a challenge like an accident or an illness, we can choose to think of this experience as a curse or a burden to stay in a negative mode. Faced with the same challenge we can choose to focus on finding the lesson in this and growing with it.

In either case, we have the broken arm, or the chronic disease. We have to deal with it, live with it, or treat it regardless of our attitude. If we accept the experience as a challenge, rather than calling it a curse, we make that healing time much easier.

As we choose our thoughts and our words more carefully, we automatically diminish and eliminate the darkness and negativity from our lives.

When tempted to fall into old habits of negativity, look at the situation in a different way. Focus on looking for that one speck of light, love, hope, or joy. Now, see and describe the situation from the speck of light.

Eliminate from your thoughts and your ready vocabulary all expressions like:

  • with my luck, I won�t get chosen
  • if there�s a bug going around, I always get it
  • kids today aren�t responsible
  • I�ll try, but I don�t know
  • I could never do that
  • I�m not good enough, strong enough, pretty enough, etc.

Change your paradigm by turning your thoughts and words around:

  • I always have a chance of being chosen.
  • I am thankful for my strong immune system. I resist disease.
  • I see more and more kids who are responsible today.
  • I do my best always. Birds just fly. They don�t try!
  • I can do anything I set my mind to.
  • I can do that if I set my goals, do the work, and allow it to happen.
  • I love myself the way I am, and support myself in expanding.

When you find yourself in a new situation, choose the way you think about the experience to illuminate the positive. Choose words like challenge, lesson, and opportunity for growth, while discarding words like curse, burden, and suffering.

Use powerful action words to describe your abilities, while setting your goals, and then moving into positive action. Use action words that describe the feeling of already having the experience you desire.

Remember that we are beings of energy, love, and light. Our thoughts, words, and actions are expressions of changing energy. Positive thoughts and words of gratitude, compassion, love, respect, and encouragement attract more of the same. Similarly, negative thoughts, words, and actions of deprivation, disdain, fear, anger, and denigration attract more of the same. Like attracts like energy.

With the power of choice you can change your thoughts before expressing them in words. With the power of attraction you can co-create your reality.
