3 Ways to Change a Negative Thought!

22 Jul

Probably the number one question I am asked is, “What is the best way to change a negative thought into a positive thought?”

By asking this question, it is obvious that the person asking knows that negative thoughts manifest themselves in fear, and that a fearful thought held in mind expresses itself in those horrible fearful feelings we feel throughout our body.

Here are three methods I use for letting go of a fearful negative thought:

1)    I learned this from Florence Scovel Shinn in her wonderful book, The Game of Life and How to Play it!

“Infinite Spirit, I cast the burden of this (say whatever the thought; fear, anger, etc.) on you, and I go free.” Repeat as many time as necessary until the fear is gone.

2)    This one I created:

“I was lead to believe by others that I (fill in your fear or belief – I’ll use not too smart) was not too smart. That most others were smarter than me. That is an absolute LIE. In fact I am very smart. I have an above average IQ. I learn things quickly and retain most of what I learn. I am very smart.”

In this example I am first verbalizing what I was told (taught) by others. I then declare that this is not true, in fact a lie. I then state to the Universe the exact opposite using the two most powerful words in the Universe, I AM.

Think of this as erasing a recording made years ago and re-recording it with the actual truth.

3)    This comes right out of A Course in Miracles. When thinking a negative thought state the following:

“This thought I do not want. I choose instead (fill in what ever thought you want).”

Try them all and then choose the one you feel most comfortable with. You may address it to whomever you view as your higher power. I will typically say the one I’ve chosen 3-5 times and whenever possible out loud. It’s always best when you hear yourself saying these things.

With love,

Michael
