Tonight just as every night and daytime, my mind recycles negative thoughts. I am so used to this constant humming in the background that I am not aware of it.
Awareness is enough. And it seems you are aware of it. It is no more complicated than that. The negative thoughts are not your thoughts. They have been implanted from the outside... they come from your past. The past is no more. They are shadows of the past. Simply watching them... being aware that it is a habit... it is enough. Does it make sense to fight with one's own shadows? If you start fighting with these thoughts, as if they are real, then you give them more juice. Simple awareness (without saying this thought is bad, or that thought is good), and over time, they will slowly but surely lose their grip on you. True freedom comes as a consequence.
Keep on keeping on...
This is a very important step in your healing journey, the decision to "let go" of all negativity. I made the same decision once, telling myself that from this moment on, I would only acknowledge positive thoughts, that my outward actions would only be positive. How do you handle negative thoughts? When you notice them do not give them importance, shrug them off and then just "let them go" replacing them with positive thoughts. The emotional freedom technique (EFT) will also help you during this process.
My best to you,
You are responsible for your every thought and action. You create them. You can heal them. To say that they "appear on you" is utter nonsense. It is denial in its greatest form. The first step in all internal healing is to get rid of denial - it is the major block to all internal healing.
course you create them, but what I am saying is there is a bigger YOU beyond the
personality. It is what is called awareness. Thoughts act as interference
patterns which are like waves on the ocean. They don't affect the ocean per se.
They just appear on it.
But if you think you can control them as you say........."
That is once more saying that you cannot control your thoughts because of something outside of your own self/personality/spirit. There is no one or thing outside of your personality/spirit that is controlling you, unless you yourself allow it. If you allow it, you are not in control of your transmediumship - but you are still responsible for your reality regardless who/what you allow to take control of you. You are an eternal spirit working through your body. You as spirit create everything in your life - including all thoughts or non-thoughts, ills, abundance, conflicts, everything.
Get in touch with yourself as spirit and you will take control of your reality.
"Don't think of a yellow Volkswagon."
I didn't. I thought of the "trickster" who typed the line.
Have you seen "What the BLEEP do we Know? Down the Rabbit Hole?" It's scientists and spiritualists explaining that we create our own reality, but there is no reality!
It's all an illusion.
We are creating this drama to learn lessons. This life/world isn't "real", and neither is "death".
All habits, whether good habits or bad, are ways to avoid moment to moment awareness. To remain unconscious to the fact that you are acting mechanically. Replacing one habit with another habit is really avoiding the real issue of living an authentic life.
