Are you a person who attracts negative events, circumstances and people into your life? Do you find that for every positive thing you say or think there are ten others that are negative? Are you a victim of your own critical and negative thought patterns but fail to see how this is affecting you? Do you consider yourself "down on your luck" more often than not? Do you feel the world conspires against you making you a constant victim?
If you look around you will see the true state of your inner belief system. If your life isn't the way you envisioned it would turn out it could be because you continually sabotage your innermost desires. "You are what you think" is a true statement. If you believe that only bad things happen to you then of course that's what you will attract. Everything in life vibrates to a certain frequency. Positive thought vibrations will attract wonderful and beautiful things into your life. Focus on negativity and you will feel the difference both physically and mentally.
How to change your life by changing your thoughts is not a new concept. I have personally watched negative thoughts become like a cancer permeating and/or destroying everything in its' path. To change your outer world you must first change your thought and belief process. Replacing old thought patterns can be a challenge initially but it is worth it. To consciously dwell on things you don't desire in your life is attracting them to you like magnets. Break the habit of negativity and dwelling on things you don't want and watch you life change dramatically.
Negative thoughts can be a "one bad apple spoils the whole bunch" analogy. All of the good, positive and high vibrational thoughts can easily be replaced with cancerous negative thoughts if you do not remain vigil in policing your thoughts. When a negative thought appears be aware of it and replace it with something positive and uplifting. The women on my forum (and myself) use affirmations on an hourly basis to reinforce the positive and diminish the negative. Once you become accustomed to shifting your awareness consciously you may not need reminders but it's good to establish a ritual and a habit.
Not only are "Negative Nellys" unpleasant to be around but they can drain you quickly. I have a friend who is the perfect example of one and she has the ability to drain me if I spend time around her. It doesn't matter how positive and upbeat you are it is difficult to maintain under a constant barrage of negativity. I suggest if you are unable to direct someone's attention to something positive that you disengage with them rather than poisoning yourself with their negativity. Change your vibration and life by changing your thoughts. Say to yourself hourly "Isn't life wonderful?" Watch it change!
