“How do I stop thinking negative thoughts?”
. . . asked JP today. My answer: You don’t. Negative thoughts rock! They’re totally full of valuable things you can learn about yourself! In Juicy Joy training, we grab onto our negative thoughts and emotions and suck all the insight we can from them. It confuses my LOA friends when I get excited about negativity, but it’s all part of the Juicy Joy magic. Look, you’re a human being and that means stuff is going to piss you off. You will have desires and things will get in the way of those desires. The natural spectrum of emotions that are available to human beings includes some sucky ones. It would be great if we could simply decide not to feel them, but for most of us that just doesn’t work.
Attempting to mentally override a natural emotion because you’re afraid it will draw bad things into your life causes that emotion to bury itself within your energetic body. You might successfully get it out of your conscious level of awareness, but the energy it takes to suppress it creates a vibration that is just as powerful as your conscious attention. From a Law of Attraction perspective, your vibrational frequency is what draws things to you. Your vibrational frequency is definitely affected by where you choose to place your deliberate attention, but unfortunately it is also affected by your un-deliberate attention.
There’s an iceberg model that’s often used in psychology to illustrate the ratio of conscious thoughts to unconscious ones. Picture an iceberg. The bit sticking out above the waterline represents your conscious thoughts. The big-ass chunk below the waterline represents the energy of the beliefs you’re storing that you aren’t even aware of. When you deny any emotion, you’re just shoving it down beneath the waterline. When an above-water belief conflicts with a below-water belief, you experience it as a vague, uncomfortable discord within you. It drains your energy and prevents you from beaming out clear vibrational signals to attract what you want.
So start thanking and embracing those negative thoughts! Every one of them is a treasure when you learn how to decode it and use it as a tool to learn about yourself. I hope to see you in the Juicy Joy Online course so I can teach you all the techniques for doing that. Till then, just love the hell out of ALL your glorious emotions!
