Often times, negative thoughts can creep into our day-to-day life and cause a little bump in our lives. Negative thoughts can affect our drive and ability to navigate through life’s tasks as fluidly as we’d like. Negative thoughts can affect sleep, motivation, productivity, emotional strength and stability. Negative energy can pull you down, and the unconscious mind works in such powerful ways, to diminish our happiness and make us feel poorly about certain things in our life. If you’re feeling down or overrun by negative thoughts, read on for some guidance on overcoming this obstacle.
The most effective way to cleanse your mind of negative energy is finding the source of your unhappiness; more-so, the root of what is directly causing these negative thoughts to surface. Ask yourself, what is causing me to have these negative thoughts? Your happiness lies in the solution to your answer.
Find a quiet place to sit and reflect. Close your eyes and identify the root of your unhappiness. Allow your thoughts and feelings to reflect how this thought is affecting you. How does it make you feel?
At this point, decide what you would like to replace your negative thought with. Perhaps a word or phrase, an action, or a happy memory. Feel yourself releasing the tension and negative thought from your head to your toes. Visualizing the tension exiting your body and replacing that space with positivity is the key to permanently ridding yourself of these negative thoughts.
Soak it in and let it absorb the empty space of negativity that has left your body. This takes time, perhaps as short as 3 minutes, or as long as 8-10 minutes. However long it takes, ensuring you have completely detached from the negative thought is important. Any stranded thoughts can resurface into the negative energy you are working at resolving.
