March/April 2008 - How Do I Stop Negative Thoughts?
Back to Newsletter
Do you know how powerful your thoughts are? Do you know that they have the capacity to heal your body, versus to become ill? They have the power to attract what you want in your life, versus what you “don’t want”.
Every one of us thinks a variety of thoughts throughout our day. Some are positive, some more neutral, and others are quite negative or self-destructive. Often the ways we think, or the thoughts we have today, are simply a reaction, or a pattern to how we’ve always reacted or thought about a particular situation or event in the past.
We react this way, simply because it becomes automatic and it’s easier to go on what I call “autopilot”, by reacting or thinking the same thoughts, until you feel like you’re in an emotional negative rut. There’s a bit of a caveat here: the fact of the matter is you cannot control your thoughts, from the standpoint of what pops into your mind. All of us have random thoughts that just seem to surface, almost out of the blue. But what we can control is what we do with these thoughts and how we choose to see circumstances in our lives.
Many of you may be familiar with the powerful concepts shared in the DVD and the book: The Secret. I hope you enjoy this great article below written by the creator of The Secret.

"How do I stop my negative thoughts?" - is a question that I have been asked many times. If you have ever asked this question then you will feel such enormous relief in knowing the answer, because it is so simple. How do you stop negative thoughts? You plant good thoughts!
When you try to stop negative thoughts, you are focusing on what you don't want - negative thoughts - and you will attract an abundance of them. They can never disappear if you are focused on them. The "stop" part is irrelevant - the negative thoughts are your focus. It doesn't matter if you are trying to stop negative thoughts or control them or push them away, the result is the same. Your focus is on negative thoughts, and by the law of attraction you are inviting more of them to you.
The truth is always simple and it is always easy. To stop negative thoughts, just plant good thoughts! Deliberately plant good thoughts! You plant good thoughts by making it a daily practice to appreciate all the things in your day. Appreciate your health, your car, your home, your family, your job, your friends, your surroundings, your meals, your pets, and the magnificent beauty of the day. Compliment, praise, and give thanks to all things. Every time you say "Thank you" it is a good thought! As you plant more and more good thoughts, the negative thoughts will be wiped out. Why? Because your focus is on good thoughts, and what you focus on you attract.
So don't give any attention to negative thoughts. Don't worry about them. If any come, make light of them, shrug them off, and let them be your reminder to deliberately think more good thoughts now.
The more good thoughts you can plant in a day, the faster your life will be utterly transformed into all good. If you spend only one day speaking of good things and saying "Thank you" at every single opportunity, you will not believe your tomorrow. Deliberately thinking good thoughts is exactly like planting seeds. As you think good thoughts you are planting good seeds inside you, and the Universe will transform those seeds into a garden of paradise. How will the garden of paradise appear? As your life!”
Rhonda Byrne’s suggestions are amazingly powerful for shifting your thoughts and your emotions.
If however, you’re having issues that go beyond the random negative thoughts we all experience from time to time, and these thoughts become chronic, such as anger, fear, sadness, etc., the good news is you can release the root cause of the emotion, through an amazing process known as “TimeLine Therapy”. By releasing the root cause, you will no longer carry any negative charge of that emotion, helping you to attract more positive experiences.
