“Love and Happiness is a drug that is worth being addicted to.” – Ruben Cloete
A couple of days ago I suffered from terrible headache. I was surfing the Internet, browsing different motivational and positive thinking blogs, when I stumbled upon the blog below. Right before I opened it, I remembered the suggestion I read in one of the self-help books I read recently. Their advice was to ask your subconsciousness: “By what behavior did I attract this disease / ache?” So, I asked myself and the answer that I got was that I resist negative thoughts too much. This resistance created tension in my shoulders and upper body, which slowed blood circulation to my head, resulting in my headache. You can imagine my surprise when I opened the blog and read the post that was so in line with the answer I received from my subconsciousness. But then again, there are miracles everywhere, if you only are willing to see them.
What I noted to myself after reading this post is that it’s very important to not resist the negative thoughts. By resisting you’re creating more situations where you have to resist them. It’s better to acknowledge the fact, grasp the root cause of that negative emotion / feeling / thought and make a change. For me, it was and still is making a peace with someone who hurt me in the past. For quite some time I’ve been resisting the thoughts about him and living like the situation never happened and tried to be positive instead. What I realized is that I should uncover something I was hiding from myself, acknowledge the fact of what happened, forgive the person who wronged me and make peace with my past. Sometimes, we hide dead bodies of the past under the layer of positivity, but it’s better to look into the eye of the problem and solve it once and for all than to fear that the mistakes and hurt of the past will haunt you again.
By the way, my headache miraculously disappeared right after reading the post.
Here is the link to Ursula’s blog and the post I’ve been talking about : The Power of Negative Thinking.
May you always be blessed with love, joy and happiness!
In many LOA and positive thinking books that I read, one of the main suggestions is to concentrate on the things that you love and to keep your attention away from what you don’t like. Taking this advice, I decided to record the things that I love throughout the day and then post it here. I’m sure that this small exercise will keep me on the positive track and will bring me closer to my wishes coming true!
So, I love …
- clean cars
- my cell phone and it’s cover
- smell of flowers and grass
- walking alone
- sunny warm weather
- nicely dressed people
- green light turning on as I walk to cross the road
- cute cats
- beautiful big old trees
- meeting friends
- seeing happy children
- windless summer nights
- flowers and trees in the park
- clean roads
- watching children play
- walking so much that it feels like I’ve done full workout at the gym
- seeing couples in love with each other
- watching animation on Flame Towers
- living in a secure and quiet area
- my car
- sitting on a bench in the park doing nothing
- thinking nice thoughts
Because others cannot vibrate in your experience, they cannot affect the outcome of your experience. They can hold their opinions, but unless their opinion affects your opinion, their opinion matters not at all. A million people could be pushing against you, and it would not negatively affect you unless you push back. They are affecting what happens in their experience. They are affecting their point of attraction—but it does not affect you unless you push against them.
