Negative Trends – Can You Reverse Them?

We’ve all been through difficult times in our lives. We’ve also heard the statement that when we’re going through that particular storm, we’re going through a change in our lives. That nothing can stay the same, and we’re to keep our chin up and remain positive when we’re going through said storm.

However, that’s one of the most difficult things to do, no matter what adversity you are facing. I’ve always said to myself when someone has shared that wisdom, “Seriously? That’s what I want to hear right now?”

Unfortunately, it’s so true. I know this because I’ve witnessed the other side of difficult storms I’ve gone through. The key IS to learn how to handle them because we can’t eliminate them from our lives. Life happens and if we can discover ways to handle the negative situation without going into a panic, we may actually see how it can produce positive benefits.

We all know how easy it is to be positive about our lives when we’re going through positive trends. But when a negative trend hits us and we fight it, it will ultimately delay the change for the greater good that is taking place.

Therefore, whenever you’re handed a negative trend, this is the time to test your faith and spiritual power by trying the following:

  • Don’t allow your thinking to become negative about yourself and life – NO MATTER WHAT!
  • You must try to keep your thoughts positive by realizing you’re going through a transitional period, which appears on the surface as negative or destructive.
  • The only thing that is being destroyed is the “old” in your life so it can clear the way for even greater good in your life.
  • Just try to tell yourself “this too shall pass”, which will cause the transitional phase to pass quickly, resulting in greater good.
  • During this time it’s even more important to meditate and program your mind with positive thought patterns, such as:
    • I accept that these difficult trends in my life are only a transitional stage leading to greater good in my life;
    • I am confident about my future, regardless of what is taking place at this moment;
    • As a result of what I am going through right now, I have complete faith that my future will be even better.
  • Don’t tell other people what a difficult time you are having. This will only continue the negative thoughts, as well as, putting it out into the Universe causing it to continue to come back to you. Discuss it with someone you know who is positive and genuinely concerned for your well-being.
  • Never feel that God has failed you, or that you have failed God. Blaming God or someone else will only prolong the negative trend, which will prevent you from moving forward into the positive trend in your life.
  • Be aware of new ideas about your life that may enter into your mind at this time. Keeping your mind positive and open, the answers will come.

Here are a few statements you can tell yourself while you quiet your mind during a storm:

While Inhaling, Tell Yourself:                                                While Exhaling, Tell Yourself:

I take in the new ……………………………………………………………… I eliminate the old.

I take in a new trend ……………………………………………………….. I eliminate an old trend.

I take in a positive future ………………………………………………… I eliminate a negative past.

Remember that you can reverse a negative trend. Believe in yourself, and keep the faith. And so it is…

The Power of Meditation

Meditation brings about the ability to live naturally and to have control over your inner self and your mind. It can be simple or complex, depending on one’s knowledge of the methods involved, or your own needs at the time of your life.

The two types of meditation taught are contact and control meditation. Contact meditation is when a person tries to get in touch with their inner ability or reality. Whereas, control meditation controls the mind through thought pattern programming. Both are fine and it depends on the individual which process they prefer. There are no right or wrong ways to meditate. The key is to quiet the mind and bring yourself closer to your higher self.

Meditation can bring about a positive self-image of oneself. It will bring you closer to listening to your intuition, that inner voice or gut feeling, and begin to help you rely on it when you come to a cross-roads in your life. It can help develop our ESP and telepathic powers. We all have it, it’s just a matter of tapping into these abilities, and meditation can help.

Meditation can also bring good health to the body. By meditating daily, you discover how the body is an energy field that is affected in a healing and renewing way by contacting the primal or God-energy, which is the natural healing energy of the body. You will also begin to change negative thought patterns into positive ones.

If you faithfully practice meditation, you will soon discover how much happier you are, and how you can become more successful in your relationships, career and finances. You’ll also develop a successful inward spiritual awareness that can help you become a more evolved individual.

Some feel it’s impossible to keep the mind quiet or don’t even think they can meditate. The truth is, we all have the ability, even if it’s only for five minutes. Here is a simple meditation practice that can put you on the path to become aware of the true spiritual power within yourself:

  • Sit either on the floor or in a comfortable chair in a relaxed position;
  • Place your hands gently in your lap;
  • Close your eyes and begin to deeply breathe in and out noticing your breath entering in and out of your nostrils;
  • Place your concentration on your breath as you see in your mind’s eye your chest rising and falling;
  • Now, begin to repeat the mantra silently to yourself “So Hum”, which means, “I Am That”. That represents the Universe, which symbolizes how we are all connected to the universal energy. I am one with the Universe;
  • Continue to breathe deeply and calmly as you repeat the mantra So Hum. If your mind drifts to different thoughts, or there are disruptions in your body or in the environment, gently bring your awareness back to repeating the mantra;
  • Try this for five minutes just to begin to get a feel of how your mind can actually shut off from thoughts. Don’t get frustrated and give up. We ALL have wandering thoughts. In fact, when our mind drifts off to random thoughts that is its way of relieving stress, so that’s a good thing;
  • When the five minutes (or longer if you prefer) are up, you can release the mantra (stop repeating) and remain restful and bring awareness back into your body (wiggle your toes and fingers), but keep your eyes closed;
  • Then you can gently open your eyes and recognize how you feel. You’ll notice your heart rate is slower and you’ll feel a sense of calm and peace. Carry this feeling with you and eventually as you increase your meditation practice, you’ll discover that you will have a calmer and lighter spirit when confronted with life’s daily routines.

Discover the power of meditation and become a better you, for yourself and others…and so it is!


Mind, Body, and Spiritual Tune-Up

Just like your finest car needs to have periodic tune-ups to function properly, so too, does our mind, body, and the spirit within us need to be maintained daily. It’s important for us to nurture our inner success mechanism so that it can provide us success in love, income, health and career.

Here are some tips, or owner’s manual, to help rejuvenate your mind, body, and the spirit within:

  • Don’t allow any negative thoughts that you may have had throughout your day be taken to bed with you. Eliminate them from your mind;
  • Fuel up each day by meditating, which will regenerate and renew your mind, body, and spirit;
  • Be sure to give your body the proper rest, exercise, and sensible diet, which will positively affect your mind and spirit;
  • Build your subconscious mind with positive goals and positive self-image thoughts;
  • If your mind and spirit is in need of repair, be sure to pray for healing;
  • If you are sick or ill, give positive mental affirmations to those areas to restore your entire mind-body-spirit;
  • If your mind or spirit overheats with a negative or painful situation, have a cooling off period where you do nothing, so that peace can enter back into your mind and spirit;
  • If you feel as though your mind or body sputters or feels clogged, be sure to meditate to unclog those areas and ask for God to help clear any negative thoughts or energy;
  • Don’t allow past negative issues or failures to hinder you from moving into a successful future. Use these techniques to release any past negativity.

Try mental visualization by combining thought and breath by doing the following:

  • While inhaling deeply, visualize your breath coming into your body and state, “I inhale peace.”
  • Exhale and visualize your breath leaving your body and state, “I exhale negativity.”
  • Then, inhale deeply and state, “Positiveness enters my subconscious.”
  • Exhale while visualizing your breath leaving your body and state, “I telepathically broadcast positiveness.”
  • Next, inhale deeply and state, “I go into God’s presences.”
  • Exhale and say, “God’s energy fills me.”
  • Finally, sit quietly in meditation for a few minutes so that you can feel the effects of the above-mentioned steps.

Remember that you are a vital part of the universe and giving and receiving positive love and energy will help you to tune-up your mind, body, and spirit daily…and so it is!

How You See Yourself

How you see yourself everyday reflects the quality of your life, whether it is progressing or regressing. What you are thinking in your mind could make or break your life and its potential. You have an image of yourself in your mind. That image can impress your subconscious mind gearing it for success and happiness, or failure and frustration.

Your minds thoughts can project or radiate out to others, which will in turn attract back the likeness of those thoughts, known as the law of attraction. Those thought energies will either make your company more attractive to people who can advance your life, or your thoughts will repulse them and attract negative people who can hinder you.

Your self-image can be constructed by your thoughts as they stimulate corresponding emotions. The key is to see yourself in a better light, and then through this positive view, eliminate any thoughts of despair in every area of your life. You need to add positive energy to all levels of your mind.

To do this, you need to develop activity visualization, which can bring extra dimensions of positive thoughts to your mind and daily awareness. You’ll need to apply it every day in everything you do. Basically, we create what we see in our own minds.

Try the following visualization affirmations each day:

  • Every time I see a healthy person, I will SEE myself in my own mind as having the same kind of health;
  • Every time I see a prosperous person, I will SEE myself in my own mind as a prosperous person;
  • Every time I see a person who has/knows love in his/her life, I will SEE myself in my own mind as having love in my life;
  • Every day I will visualize myself as a person who thinks, acts, and feels as a person with a wonderful life;
  • Every time I see something that I’d like to own, I immediately SEE myself in my own mind as having the money to buy it, and then enjoying it;
  • Every day I will SEE myself as a healthy, prosperous, fulfilled and happy person;
  • Every day I will SEE myself as a person of radiant health, financial wealth, fulfillment, and happiness.

Finally, be sure to thank your divine creator for all the good in your life, now and always…and so it is!

Establishing New Patterns in the New Year

A pattern is a manifestation of a psychic force that is active in our lives. We all speak about a positive or negative pattern in our life, but with psychic and spiritual wisdom, we can gain further insight as to how to handle them.

I’ve discussed before how thought is energy and how important it is to be careful of what we think. Therefore, when a pattern is established, there is a pattern of energy that exists in the universe. We also know that the mind rules the body and the body rules the mind. Therefore, we have the ability to influence those energy patterns in our minds.

We’ve all heard that when a person is in a rut, they need a change of scenery or a vacation. But one doesn’t really need to take a vacation in the ordinary sense, but rather, they need to take a vacation from certain set ways of doing things in the course of their daily activities.

To break a negative pattern, we need to shake it up. Sometimes these negative patterns began as a positive pattern, but have since served its purpose and no longer serve you in a positive manner. We need to learn to break through any psychic wall that is holding us back.

Here are a few techniques to help change or break an unwanted pattern:

  • Whenever you feel old patterns closing in on you, go outside and take a few deep breaths. As you do, feel that there is renewing energy clearing your mind and dissolving old patterns.
  • Burn incense in your residence for a few days. Sage is a great at clearing any negative energy that is lingering from old patterns and thoughts in one’s mind.
  • When you are dealing with anyone who has a negative effect on you, picture a huge white light of protection around your entire body.
  • Each day give yourself positive thought suggestions (i.e. the power of God has already dissolved unwanted thought patterns from my mind).
  • Shop at a different time or place than you normally do.
  • Change or add something new to your diet.
  • Try new exercises.
  • Do something you have been putting off.
  • Clear your house of any items no longer needed, or give them to someone who can use them.
  • Meditate at a different time of day.

Anything that has been can be changed! You have the power of God within you to make things new. Expect with an attitude that positive new changes will begin in your life. And finally, exercise patience. Patience builds psychic-spiritual energy that makes positive things happen…and so it is!

Here’s to a Healthy and Happy New Year in 2017!!

Understanding Karmic Cause

We all can understand a problem on the surface, but understanding the nature of a problem when it arises in life can help us to better solve the problem. A karmic cause is based on the law of cause and effect. Basically, if you’ve done or thought of something, you will either reap the benefits or pay a debt.

In most cases, it is something that has been done in this lifetime, but in some instances it may be an action from a previous life. Whichever lifetime, by removing the karmic cause in your mind, the psychic reason for your problem will withdraw the problem itself, resulting in a new growth of oneself.

When we remove the karmic cause, we must have a growth of consciousness. One way is to deal with a problem as soon as it arises. We must remain calm and believe that no matter what the problem, it can be dealt with spiritually. There may be physical actions that must take place, but for the most part it must be outgrown. After all, that’s what we’re all trying to do in our lives…grow.

Here are a few guidance guidelines to help with handling problems as they arise:

  • After your initial reaction, don’t overreact. Search for spiritual peace and power in your higher conscious to deal with a problem;
  • Don’t spend time blaming yourself or others. Instead, ask for higher guidance on what action to take to remove the problem;
  • Tell yourself that the power within you is greater than the problem;
  • Meditate more often to bring your consciousness above the psychic energy of the problem;
  • If other people are directly involved with your problem, bless them instead of cursing them or seeking revenge. This will set up positive thought energy currents to help remove the problem;
  • If the problem is for a lack of something, immediately tell yourself that what you appear to lack, it is already yours through the spiritual belief within you;
  • Ask for divine guidance as soon as you awaken in the morning and anytime of the day that you feel the need. Always give thanks for being guided;
  • When a problem arises, don’t think of it as something going wrong in your life, rather consider it a signal for a new growth;
  • Don’t take a negative or defeatist attitude. Even thought at that time it doesn’t feel as though you can cope with the problem, know that God is divinely guiding you to a solution.

Believe that the healing God-power in your mind will remove the karmic cause of any problem…and so it is!
