“A negative mind will never give you a positive life.”
Last year I was on a course where we looked at the research that had been done around this topic. It’s all very well for someone to say to you that like attracts like so if you have negative thoughts you will put out a vibration that will attract the negative to you. But how do we know that this is happening with any conviction. There was a famous study done by a Japanese man who worked with water crystals. If positive thoughts were directed to the water, beautiful crystals were formed. But if negative thoughts were directed at it, the crystals were not in any cohesive pattern. We know that the brain and the heart put out energy just like a piece of music that we can hear. There was another study done that showed some iron filings on a plate attached to music vibrations. Each time the frequency of the music was changed the pattern of the iron filings changed. The higher the frequency, the more intricate the pattern, and at a certain frequency the pattern was always the same.
We know that negative thoughts have a lower vibration and when replaced with positive thoughts the vibration becomes higher and more intricate. The challenge for all of us is to keep the vibration at a higher level. We may start with an intention of being positive but something happens at work, someone is sick at home, we’re tired and hungry and we let the thoughts drift into the negative zone. The trick then is to be aware as much as we can and ‘flick the switch’ back to the positive the moment we notice the energy has dropped into the negative, and not allow ourselves to start judging. That in itself is a low energy. I was talking last week about habits. Challenge yourself to see how much you can notice when you have slipped and bring the energy back up with more empowering positive thoughts. Let that habit develop so that your mind-set becomes more positive overall.
Enjoy being positive as much as you can!
