Negativity is simply this – Hanging on to a negative thought. That thought is reflected in your body as an uneasy feeling that your mind describes as an emotion.
The answer to this dilemma is not thinking positively. That just sets up a push-pull argument that goes back and forth inside our mind.
The solution is to notice you are having the negative thought and to feel the associated sensation in your body. When you give full attention to the sensation that goes along with the thought, you begin a process of transformation that has the feeling ease, and the thought subside.
I could write about this all day long, but the proof is in the doing.
The next time you notice negativity within you, give your full attention to the feeling that goes along with the thought. That doesn’t mean to discuss it; it means to feel it in your body. You are acknowledging the reality of the feeling and not pretending that it isn’t there by thinking positively. The result is more peaceful feelings with much better thoughts.
“Think Positive” is an incomplete piece of advice. There is no strategy offered to genuinely get you there other than the willpower of thinking, which has a miserable rate of failure.
On the surface, “Feel Negative To Be Positive” doesn’t sound like a workable strategy until you put it to the test.
Take the personal exam right now. Fully explore the sensations associated with a negative thought and witness your weekend brighten.
All the best,
