Negative Thoughts and Manifestation

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going to talk

about negative thoughts and manifestation.

In one of my online retreats recently,

I received a question from a student.

And she asked, when I have a fear

based thought I'm scared that I'm

manifesting something negative

into my life, something bad.

So I wanted to share how I

responded to that since I think

many people have this fear.

My response was not to worry

because the existence of a thought

by itself is not that powerful.

Instead how we orient to that

thought has much more significance.

For instance, acceptance of a

negative thought interrupts the

negative momentum of that thought.

It exists, but no longer

with the same weight.

And therefore, no longer with

the same cause and effect power.

We're not lost in the thought.

We're just seeing it.

Oh, there's a thought.

Manifestation, AKA, how we create our life

is so much deeper than just the thoughts.

Moving through the mind.

A positive thought with unresolved deeper

emotional patterns does not cut it.

You may say you want something

in your mind, but your body

could be bracing against.

In that case, it doesn't matter how

many positive thoughts you have.

There's still something

that is pressing the brakes.

This is where and why moving toward

our pain so that it can be healed

and integrated is actually essential

for becoming more receptive to the

life we are excited to create and

want to create so that we're not

subconsciously sabotaging what we want,

even though we're thinking positive.

Fear of a fear-based thought

is reinforcing a fear loop, a

scarcity mindset, if you will.

Acceptance of a fear-based

thought is anchoring you in love,

spaciousness, empowerment, and the

understanding that you are much

bigger than your thinking mind.

So the takeaway here, how you orient

to what is arising has a much bigger

impact on what you attract into

your life than the actual content

of what moves through your mind.

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
