How Negative or Positive Energy Impacts your Life
Bonnie Moss (c)October 2013
To be positive or to be negative... that is the question.
It is your choice.
According to Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone in
their book Success through a Positive Mental Attitude,
1960, " we translate into physical reality the thoughts
and attitudes which we hold in our minds, no matter
what they are. We translate into reality thoughts of
poverty just as quickly as we do thoughts of riches.
Thought is energy. Negative thoughts use up a lot
of energy.Worry does not solve problems. It clouds
your judgment since you are wrapped up in a blanket
of insecurity,uncertainty,feelings of guilt and self-doubt.
You are giving negative energy power and give life to
the negative thoughts that you are creating. You are
afraid that your project will fail. Guess what- the
project fails. You always complain about your finances,
that you never have enough money. Indeed, you
are attracting financial difficulties with these
The negative thoughts that dwell in your mind can
actually materialize. Negative feelings and thoughts
fuel the power of negative energy. The path of
negativity is an unhappy path - it encourages feelings
of persecution and distrust.
Negative energy casts dark clouds in what is actually
a pleasant atmosphere. Negative energy is a nervous
energy. It is difficult to be calm and collected when
you are absorbed in negative thoughts. In a negative
world, life is a struggle, challenges are persecutions,
relationships cause misery and victory is out of reach.
Failure is the end result.
People tend to steer clear of a negative person.
Negative energy is toxic. It is a downer and a person
who tends to be negative does not promote good
relationships. How do you like to listen to or be
around someone who sees nothing right about
any issue? If you constantly complain, whine
or criticize issues and relationships, you are
wasting your energy and drag others into your
negativity. Negative energy is draining to the
negative person and touches everyone it comes
in contact with.
Can this negative energy be turned around the other way?
With the advances in technology and information, everyone
is encouraged to think positive.When negative thoughts
intrude, stop and think.If you believe that no one likes you,
ask yourself why this is so. What makes you think this?
Why not change your negative thoughts into a positive
dimension. Think of yourself as a likeable person. Isn't
this a pleasant thought? What are the qualities that make
people like you? No one is perfect-but there is always
room for improvement.
Volumes of books are written about the advantages of
positive thoughts which equate to positive energy. There
is as much information on the internet. Positive thinking
is not a new concept. Positive energy gives you the
necessary forces for a fulfilling life- vim, vigor and vitality.
It is not easy to turn around a negative way of thinking.
But with determination and clear purpose, it is doable.
Try to associate with people who see the bright side of
life. Positive energy is not about getting into a state of
denial. Positive attitude makes no room for doom and
gloom. Of course there will always be times of sadness
and pain. Remember, the sun does not always shine,
gloomy days can go on for what seems an eternity.
If you choose to surround yourself with positive energy,
in the face of challenges, conflicts or daunting tasks,
you cope with these with courage and confidence .
You know in your heart that all these will come to pass.
It is not unheard of that there are those with debilitating
or terminal illness who accept the challenge and find a
In Canada, Terry Fox will be remembered for his courage
to run across Canada to raise funds for cancer research.
I will not go into detail in this article because it is worth
your time to research who was Terry Fox and what is
his contribution to research. It is a very inspiring story.
Positive energy is encouraging. If you look at life with a
positive attitude, you accomplish your goals and take
others with you as you move on. Consciously or
unconsciously, you influence people in your life- your
family and friends. You also create a calm and peaceful
atmosphere in your space which equates to the flow of
positive energy that you share with anyone near you.
You will still experience moments of anger, but it is not
an anger that stirs vengeance or hatred, but that of
understanding and compassion.
Even in the midst of pain and sorrow, positive energy
comes along and lightens the load. It shines brilliant
and warm rays that lead you to the path of healing.
It encourages you to forgive what needs to be forgiven.
It helps you to find clarity to sort through what is relevant
and pertinent at the moment and discard what is no longer
helpful as you move forward.
Positive energy strengthens your faith, first in yourself
and in the Universe. You have that confidence that you
will be provided with what you need. Positive energy fills
your heart, your life with peace. It helps you understand
that love is more powerful than hatred.
In a difficult circumstance, breathe peace and surprise
yourself. Things are not as bad as they seem. Positive
energy paves your way to attract that which your heart
desires and a life that undersands love. It fills you with
inner peace. Positive energy helps you to enjoy and
appreciate a life that has meaning.
