sum up the philosophy very well. Two
people can look at that same object or
event and see two totally different
situations, depending on perspective.
Before we can consider changing from
negative to positive beings, we need to
understand the nature of the former. The
reason why most people walking around
find it preferable to be negative is that
it's far more comfortable, safer and less
threatening. Negativity is related to fear
and the need to control. Positivity is
about trust and the belief that life is good.
But to trust is to risk. Many are afraid to
let go in case life throws them unwanted
surprises and the proverbial curve ball. It
is positive to be at peace with oneself --
ultimately positive, in fact.
Negative thinking is a whole different
thing and not at all desirable. When you
find yourself falling into that trap, make
a conscious effort to catch yourself,
change the thought immediately to
a positive one or, if you can't do that,
neutralise it at least. For example, if
you think, "I can't do that", a positive
replacement would, of course, be, "Yes,
I can" but if you're by nature a negative
thinker, start with, "I'm not going to think
that". Gradually, you can train yourself
right out of negative thinking by never
judging yourself but continually neutral-
ising it till it becomes second nature.
LACK OF SELF BELIEF
Without trust in oneself, many, many
doors will forever be closed in life. Lack
of self belief leads to limitation thinking,
poverty consciousness and a restricted life
experience. If we live behind labels that
limit us, let negative thinking take over
our minds and hand our power over to
other people, addictions or unhealthy
behaviours, we can't expect to make
progress in any of the major areas of life
and we will never know the freedom of a
life without borders. Self belief doesn't
mean arrogance, boasting or vanity, in
fact, the opposite. It's actually more
about self acceptance, recognising the
need for continual growth but also the
perfection of imperfection, as in, "I'm
already perfect just as I am." That level of
self trust is what true empowerment is
all about because it liberates us from self
doubt, self criticism and self destruct-
Belief differs from trust insofar as the
former is more definite. A friend once
put it most succinctly: she said that trust
is hoping, belief is knowing. Some people
buy lottery tickets for 40 years without
ever really believing they're going to win.
What's the point of that? They may as well
give the money directly to charity. Quietly
to believe without pushing or desperation
is the way to achieve goals and dreams.
What is trust after all? It's the ability to
hold onto a truth without any evidence
whatsoever. When something is tangible
and proven, there's no need for trust.
Yet, with deep seated belief, everything is
possible. Somewhere out in the universe
is every dream anyone ever dreamed,
every wish fulfilled and every prayer
answered. For these to come into our
concrete reality, we only need to open our
eyes, our hearts and our arms to receive.
Borders make us feel we're stuck in
untenable situations but once we recog-
nise that, in fact, we have total authority,
total choice and total power over our own
lives, freedom is automatic. There are
necessary rules and, as I said before, some
restrictions are inevitable but spiritual
and emotional freedom is our right and
we can have that as soon as we claim it.
Knowing you have choice creates
empowerment. We are not helpless
victims of life; we are in charge and can
decide what we want, what makes us
happy and the people we want to bring in.
Choice over our emotions is a surprising
area. Most people would vehemently
affirm that they cannot choose or control
their feelings. But, actually, we can.
Choice itself is about stepping out of
emotion. We can't make clear, positive
decisions when we're drowning in a
storm of confusing feelings. A good
example is jealousy which is mainly caused
by insecurity and lack of trust. Once
sufferers realise this, they can actually feel
the jealousy rise up then watch it go by.
Emotions are only energy; let them rise,
recognise them then let go.
