Unless you become thoroughly aware of the negative patterns of thought in your mind, you cannot dissolve it. In fact the very act of being aware of a negative thought pattern is enough to start its dissolution – nothing more is really needed. The problem is that most people who are stuck in unwanted realities are hooked onto certain negative thought patterns in an unconscious manner, so much so that even when it’s pointed out to them that the negativity of their mind is causing the attraction of the negative circumstances, they are not able to identify these negative though patterns in their mind. As the power of your awareness becomes stronger, you will be able to identify more and more patterns of negative thought in your mind – it also helps if someone is able to point out a negative thought pattern in you.
Find the negativity in your regular thoughts
A few common negative thoughts that are prevalent in the human mind are as below
- I am not smart enough (and other negative thoughts about your intelligence)
- I don’t look good enough (and other negative thoughts about physical looks)
- I am irresponsible and disorganized
- I always get cheated
- People are not trust worthy
- I hate my life
- My life is meaningless
- No-one loves me
- People are out to disturb/harass me (replace people with specific person or an institution like taxes, government, cops etc)
- I hate my job but I have no choice but to do it for money
- People look down on me
- I am cursed to have a bad reality because of my past karma (or some other of unworthiness)
- I can’t have what I desire because I don’t look good enough/ I am not smart enough
- World is full of suffering, it’s not possible to have a happy life
- I am a weak person of no value
- Things never seem to work out for me
A good majority of humans are stuck in these negative thoughts on daily basis, and unknowingly attract the creation of negative realities around them owing this negative vibration that they are carrying within. If you feel stuck in a negative reality, just stay aware of your mind’s thought patterns for a few days and you can start identifying a lot of these thoughts in you. You will be amazed at how the mind keeps repeating these negative thoughts on continuous basis, causing deeper and deeper reinforcement and belief in these thoughts.
Your belief is what strengthens the negative thoughts
If you did not give belief to a thought, it cannot stay in your experience for long. When you take a thought like “I am not good enough” and start giving belief to it, this thought start attracting a reality that reinforces this belief – this is because attention to a thought causes attraction of a reality that reflects the essence of the thought.
If you believe a thought, you will obviously give more attention to it, than to a thought you don’t believe in. For example, if you believe that “it’s hard to make money” you will give attention to this thought every time it pops in your mind, causing the attraction of a reality that reflect the essence of this thought – this reality then reinforces the belief in this thought even more, thus creating a cycle of negativity. Another person who believes “it’s easy to make money” would see that money keeps flowing into his/her reality with ease, and the reality causes reinforcement of this thought pattern more and more.
Knowing that negativity is counter productive to your well-being, and knowing that negativity attracts negative realities, is a good enough motivation to start distancing yourself from negative thoughts. Any person would avoid a food that makes him allergic, once he identifies the food. Once you understand the science of creation and realize how negativity in the mind creates toxicity in your reality, it’s important to start identifying these negative thoughts one by one, very keenly.
Identifying the negative thought patterns in your mind by itself is enough to start its dissolution. Be like a “scientist” who is exploring the layers of the mind’s negativity. Always remember that negativity is not personal, it’s only an interpretation that the mind created under the influence of some misguided thinking. Take time everyday to explore the negativity in your mind, and allow yourself to go become aware of the repetitive patterns of negative thought. This awareness is the start of the end of unconscious reinforcement of negativity.
