Appreciate my negative thoughts, are you crazy?
Most people don’t realize that your negative thoughts are actually helping you. They help you to know more clearly what you DO want. Negative thoughts create a certain emotion in your body. Emotions that you don’t really like. But your emotions are your guidance system telling you when you are headed in the wrong direction. So if you think about it, your negative thoughts are actually positive because they are giving you a hint. Letting you know that you need to pay attention and find your way back on course. So, I have come to appreciate my negative thoughts. Emphasis on MY. This is totally different from my last post having to do with other people’s negative thoughts.
Without negative thoughts you would have a hard time finding out what you would like better. You would pretty much stay stagnant or stuck in the same place. And you would eventually have a negative thought born out of boredom. We can never stop creating. That’s what we love to do. We love the challenge, even the struggle of achieving something new. Think about it, the last time you achieved something, were you so happy that you decided you didn’t ever need to create something new, or just something else. There will always be something more to do, something more to create.
So of course you create from good feeling happy thoughts too. For example I’m taking a course to get my Certification as a Law of Attraction Life Coach, I love it, it really makes me happy. So happy that I enrolled in an Awakening your Light Body Course. My LOA Certification Course will be over in April. I loved it so much and want to continue learning more and more so I also enrolled in this second course which will go on until September. Don’t know what I’ll do next, but in this case I was motivated by positive thoughts. But, that journey actually didn’t start with a positive thought.
There have been times when negative thoughts have served to make my life better. For example, I have (had) a tear in my Rotator Cuff in my left Shoulder. I teach Karate and have loved doing Karate for many, many years. When I woke up one morning in extreme pain unable to move my whole arm I was filled with negative thoughts. I couldn’t move my arm for a week, and it took a long time after that to be able to use it much at all. Well, long story short, It was when my mind was filled with negative thoughts of how was I going to go on teaching karate. Karate is my business, my husband and I have a successful karate school. Luckily I could still teach even with the limited use of my left arm. But, I couldn’t really train anymore, it was too difficult.
Appreciation for negative thoughts.
All these worrisome thoughts about this injury brought me to a decision to take an online Information Marketing Course. I thought well, I need to do something that doesn’t require me to be so physical, that doesn’t require me to be in Tenafly, New Jersey. Which is where my school is located. I started to think about finding a career that I can do from anywhere in the world. So, I came to enroll in an Information Marketing Course, which guided me to find my passion. Which is Law of Attraction as you probably know. Which led me to Christy Whitman and her Quantum Success Coaching Academy and also now to her Awakening your Light Body Course.
I am so grateful for the tear in my rotator cuff! Imagine that! I didn’t think that at first, not for a long time, but it was the thing that lead me to what I am doing now. I absolutely love Coaching and I am thankful for my negative thoughts that brought me here. And a huge bonus is that through the meditations in the Light Body Course I have healed my tear in my shoulder. I am almost at full use again, now I just need to strengthen it. It’s amazing! The Universe had a plan for me that I was not yet aware of. It took that tear and a lot of negative thoughts to bring me to what I absolutely love doing.
I’m sure you can think back to some time in your life when you were filled with negative thoughts. But, if you ask yourself “why is this happening” “what is it that I need to pay attention too here” “what is my emotional guidance system trying to point out to me“, if you sit quietly with these questions and listen to that voice inside of you, you will receive a message. Then you can act on that and turn that negative experience towards a positive outcome.
I’d love to hear your experience with negative thoughts that actually pointed you to a better direction in your life.
Imagine, Believe & Enjoy,
