The Power of Negative Thinking

The power of negative thinking cannot be underestimated. It controls us, wounds us, limits us, and ultimately destroys us. Very often the vast majority of our negative thinking comes from beliefs that are well past their use by datee.Our habitual flow of thoughts is more negative than positive, generated by beliefs, fears and attitudes that no longer belong to who we are today!

The power of negative thinking distorts our present moments, trapping us in outdated thought modes and playing havoc with our physical bodies and our emotions.

All of the great exponents of personal development and self improvement speak of the importance of understanding the power of our thoughts to shape our lives for the better. They also share in common the knowledge that our beliefs are our thoughts and our thoughts determine our future.

For instance,from Napolean Hill's best seller - Think and Grow Rich to Dr. Wayne Dyer's You'll see it when you believe it and Anthony Robbins teaching: It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped, these teachings are clearly documented.

My early understanding of the power of our thoughts to create change came from reading the classic ~ You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay.

The good news is - we can change our thoughts.

Louise Hay teaches that life is very simple! Every thought you think creates your future and thoughts can be changed.

We all know that although it may be a simple idea, grasping it and applying it our own lives can be another story!

Embarking on the rich journey of reclaiming our authentic self is all about recognising and understanding our thoughts - why we believe the way we do - how our thinking limits us and makes us powerless - and how we can turn those negative thoughts around and to learn to love and respect both ourselves and others.

Constantly thinking negative thoughts has the power to truly break us and destroy our lives. That's the profound message and it really is as simple as that.

I truly believe that when we grasp the immensity of this simplicity, then we are on the way forward in our journey of real, meaningful change. If we can choose our thoughts, then we have the ability to create amazing change in our lives.

The Power of Negative Thinking -
Creating Powerful New Intentions

Being authentic isn’t about being perfect. Rather, it is about doing our best to be real. And being real means regarding ourselves in the same way we want others to regard us. Louise Hay brings a message of powerful self love.

The Power of Negative Thinking - Our Thoughts As Signposts

Do you know that our thoughts are like sign posts?

They lead us in the direction they are following. So, for instance, if we are thinking negative, limiting thoughts, that's the direction in which we will go - right long the path that we are creating with our thinking.

If our thoughts about our own capabilities are regularly self defeating, critical and unpowering, that's the path they will take us along.

The path of self defeat and limited opportunities.


Napolean Hill explains it this way:

That which people believe, talk about and fear, whether it be good or bad, has a very definite way of making its appearance in one form or another.

We know about the power of positive thinking - about the scientific basis behind like attracting like - about karma and what goes around comes around - so why is it we fail to truly grasp the real truth about the power of negative thinking?

The power of negative thinking can be turned into the power of positive thinking. Positive thinking is a mental attitude - a way of admitting into our minds thoughts that feed and nourish us.

What is Our Self Identity?
Within us all lies the deep yearning to know and to be known. From this comes the question of self identity, who am I? This question lies at the root of all searching on the journey towards meaning and purpose for our lives.

Until you make the unconscious conscious,

it will direct your life and you will call it fate ~
