If you are having problems breaking out of negative thinking patterns, consider trying the following: Instead of thinking, deciding and reacting for yourself, bring God or any self-actualized being that you love, respect and trust, to help lead you through your decision making process. God is Love and All, and so if you are not experiencing loving thoughts, then know that it is not the truth in you leading the way. Negative thoughts or thinking patterns are symbols that show you that it is your ego-self who is in control. Today, when any unloving thought pops up, practice catching yourself as quickly as possible, and saying to yourself: “Ok, an unloving thought has entered my mind. My ego or programmed self has taught it to me as true. But, I now know that my ego-self is not the truth in me. Now, I set aside my ego-self. Now, I ask God, the Love in me, to allow me to look at this situation through His loving eyes. It is when forgiveness and peace take the place of judgment and anger, that I will know that God is in control and guiding me. I, as God’s creation, am forever worthy of God’s guidance and advice.” Today, when a judgmental or negative thought of yourself or others pop up, remember that this is your ego, false or programmed self, responding. Now, instead of continuing to follow the ego’s demands, stop, and bring God in. Allow God to show you what would be the most loving, productive and peace producing way, to interact with yourself and others. Then simply express yourself as you have been guided by Love to do. The more you practice asking Love for guidance, the more connected to your higher self you will feel, and the more natural this way of thinking and being will become. The more you learn to look at this world through God’s merciful eyes, the less need for judgment and a negative mindset you will have.
Negative thinking patterns do not actually exist within the present moment. Within the present moment, in the eternal now, only the Love of God resides. Negative thinking patterns occur when we accept the ego’s past programming as more real or valuable than the mercy and grace of God. They repeat when we don’t question their reality or usefulness. Today, let us simply practice unlearning the false concepts that we have been programmed to believe as true. Negative thinking programs only seem to exist in the now because it is we who drag them “onto” the present moment. When negative thoughts or thinking patterns arise it is because we are using our past indoctrination to react to the now. In such a state, you are never really experiencing the present moment as it was created for you to be experienced. All you are doing by repeating past programs, behaviors and patterns, over and over again, is creating a present and future like your past. Is it any wonder why you feel lost and confused within the now? It is only by aligning with your loving nature that you get to discover, see and experience, the gifts that are being offered to you within the eternal now. Judgment of self and others, frustration, anger, resentment, stress, anxiousness, hate and revenge, are symbols of one who is dragging their past programming unto the now. They are actually obscuring, and thus never truly getting to experience and enjoy, the gifts the resides within the eternal now. Is it any wonder why then they feel and react in this unproductive and chaotic fashion? They are lost and unaware, afraid and in constant defense of false concepts, illusions, that in truth could never be defended because they are not real nor true.
Today, let us not waste any more of our time trying to use our negative thinking patterns to react to, and interact with, God’s gift to us, the present moment. It is foolish to keep on repeating and supporting past patterns and programs that have in truth never offered us the peace of mind, joy and fulfillment, we want. Instead, now, when the ego once again tries to darken our day, let us resist and decline it, knowing that where it is leading us, we do not desire to go. Then, instead of repeating behaviors that are not working for us, let us recall that thanks to free will we can choose to align with our loving nature, and instead choose to use Love’s tools. By doing so, we get to actually experience and participate in the present moment, instead of just once again repeating our past patterns. By actually experiencing the now through Love, which is God’s vision, we get to see, appreciate and understand, what is really going on. What is really going on within the present moment is everyone’s growth, healing, and awakening. In the now, each person’s journey, seen through Love’s eyes, is understood as a sacred, unique and individualized, expression and co-creation with God. Trusting in God, peace, joy and understanding, are some of the expressions and signs of one who is in alignment with the now. Such a person is experiencing the present moment as it was created for them to be experienced. Within the present moment, knowing that God is Love and All, Love is offered to all, and negative thoughts or thinking patterns cease to be supported as true, and thus cease to exist.
Today, when a negative thought pops up in your head, remind yourself that because God is Love and All, that only the Love in you is true. Remind yourself that anything that seems to be in opposition to God, Love, All, must therefore be not real nor true. Today, when a negative thought pops up, simply remind yourself: “This negative thought about myself or others is a lie, not true. Now, I know that only the Love of God in me, and because we are all One, all others, is true. Now, I’m self aware enough to be able to call out this lie as the falsity that it is. Now, I forgive myself and others for thinking lies about us as true. Now, I only reinforce my loving nurturing thoughts as true. Now, I will no longer spend any of my time supporting thoughts that don’t support me. Today, I gently forgive my misperceptions, my negative thinking patterns. I then gracefully align with my loving thoughts and nature, and in gratitude become who I was created to be”.
