I have often felt, as well as been told on a number of occasions that I am an optimist. For as long as I can remember I have been searching for the deeper meaning of what “being positive” actually meant for me in my life. This lead me to ask myself the inevitable question of what is the opposite, and how are my interactions between these two opposing forces impacting my life? Thought is consciousness of which there are basically two levels that I refer to as the third and fourth dimensional consciousness. For simplicity they are referred to as 3D and 4D.
The Logic is the first level of consciousness, that of 3D. The 3D consciousness is controlled and functions in accordance to the five physical senses of hearing, sight, smell, taste and touch as well as being guided by the Earth Laws of time, distance, and matter, past present and future. When you are being logical you witness the world through the concept of black or white, wrong or right. From these dualities judgment is created that can incorporate the Ego’s will to control. When you are focused on the present moment then you are in your higher consciousness of acceptance. Then the Ego has no control over you. Your logic is very sensitive to emotional stimulation, and interprets any experiences you have through your feelings.
Rational thought and your responses to daily events work perfectly well for much of what you do in your physical life. But whenever the Ego and emotions are brought into play in your life, then negative thoughts may appear. For example the Ego can create a fear that may confuse or create doubt. This may have a negative effect on the choices you make. The Ego and emotions often override the logical mind’s decision making. In other words you are capable of, and often do think emotionally and egoistically rather than having a fearless view of life. The prime motivator of the Ego’s power is to use fear and emotions to control others.
All fears (other than the fear of your natural instincts to survive) are illusions; your fears are as big as you make them. Your expectations, needs and desires can create negative thinking that then becomes fear. You may also have experienced fear that came from previous negative experiences. For example whenever your expectations and needs were not met, you may have felt disappointment in some form. This will create a negative force within your emotional body and the logical mind. The negative force may then express itself as frustration, anger or despair.
Ultimately negative thoughts are created by you separating yourself from your Spirit of life, your joy and peace, love and truth. Your Soul holds the qualities of acceptance, forgiveness and Love for all things. Your negative thoughts drive you further away from these qualities by giving you a message of doubt, such as “you can judge that man for what he has done” all because what has been done may go against you’re fixed beliefs. Whenever you are free from fear your life-energy will hold a positive vibration and life itself will flow with greater ease. The Ego will tell you I want this or that. The Ego can be so strong that it will even demand of you what it requires, regardless of how that demand may affect yourself or others.
Positive thinking and the emotions: the emotional body is a subtle but strong force. It registers every sound and vibration. The emotional body is not mentally orientated as is the Ego. When you’re thoughts create a need, expectations come into the picture. Whenever an expectation is not met, the illusion of disappointment can be felt strongly by an individual. Pain can become emotional, physical and mental. Emotions can create a state of negativity in how you think about others as well as your Self. It is a bit like the child who wants the sweet that it can see, but has been told that it cannot have. It is not the sweet that creates the pain, but the need of the sweet.
Negative thoughts create energy which can stay within your own energy field for as long as you choose to hold them there. You can also pass on a negative thought or feeling to another person by sharing your negative opinion about someone else with them. The effects of which may cause you to judge that person. This is often done unconsciously. If you for example are complaining about a person during a conversation, you will give that negative picture about the person to the one that you are talking to. If you pass on a negative energy to another it can create problems for them. Depending on which context you receive another person negative energy will determine how long the energy stays within you. It is wise to only hold negative energy for as long you need to understand what message it is giving you. If you do not release the energy as soon as it is understood it may become fixed within your energies. The other persons negativity that you are holding can create confusion about your own feelings, such as believing that you are angry because of your own feeling, when in fact they could be the other persons that are making you angry! I believe it is always good practice to sort out which feelings are yours, and which are not. Then life will become much clearer for you by truly understand your own feelings. Then you may have more trust in yourself.
When choices are made through the Ego or emotions they will create confusion. If you are caught up in this circle, you may feel that there is no way out. However there are ways to transform the hold of the Ego and emotions. Transformation occurs through positive thought, such as saying no to the thoughts and feelings that seek to create fear and judgment within you. It is clear that you cannot heal or balance the emotional body with emotions. You cannot transform fears with fear. Neither can you transform the Ego by feeding the Ego with what it wants, because the Ego will always want more. The answers are inside of you. The general response to someone who is attacking you is to attack back with similar stuff, which changes nothing. War begets war!
How to transform negative thinking?
It is here that higher consciousness (4D) comes into the greater picture. The whole point of positive thinking can be easily missed if you choose to take something personally. By taking something personally the Ego and emotions are involved, and as such will open negative thought or beliefs you may be holding. Whenever you take something personally you make it yours. But what is yours? Positive thought carries the Light force of Life. It is expansive. The energy of negative thought can easily impact your emotional body. For example, whenever someone negative enters your space, their energy can be felt by you as heavy or just very negative, depending on your sensitivity. How can these negative energies be transformed? Negative thoughts and feelings cannot be transformed by themselves. They must be brought upwards by your spiritual will into higher consciousness. If not, they remain caught in your energy that will confuse you through fear, doubt and negative thinking. Positive thought has the ability to transform negative thinking not the other way around.
Does it take any more energy to think positively rather than negatively? Negative thoughts are often caught up in their own net of needs and expectations. Do you often find it hard to let go of negative thoughts or feelings, even when you know it does not serve you well? When you begin to look to change your way of life by firstly becoming more aware of your thoughts and their projection, you will taking a positive step in the right direction. I would suggest, keep it as simple as possible. Take little steps forward by transforming one negative thought or word at a time. Then the transformation will be instantly positive. Even write your negative word or thoughts down to see how it feels. Then write the opposite word and feel the joy it holds? The transformation may not come over night. Be patient and continue in a steady manner.
The words that you use in everyday life are basically our thoughts in action because they carry your feelings. Trust your feelings because they are taking you to the light. By being aware of any negative thought that may appear through your feelings and mind, learn to observe them for a little bit longer before taking action. Here are some examples of opposite thoughts.
Whenever you create and hold a negative force, there is often a resistance for you to change it, that’s the Ego. This is because negative energy is inverted. This is why you require the expansive positive thoughts to raise your feelings and consciousness out of the negativity and into positive higher consciousness. When you put the Light of higher consciousness into your emotional body by your thoughts, you will feel the positive effects and your fears will be transformed.
Thee positive thinker attracts positive forces. It works the same way for the negative thinker that attracts the negative. These are the mirrors of your life principles. In other words you attract what you need to see in order to learn. The message of truth is always present. Right thinking, right choices all help to liberate your psyche from the bondages of despair!
“You only attract a mirror when you need to. When you don’t you attract what completes you!”
Love and light,
