“It’s not necessary for you to exacerbate your contrast with struggle in order to get it into a higher place. It is not necessary to suffer in order to give birth to desire. But when you have suffered and you have given birth to a desire, so what? You’ve got a desire. Turn your attention to the desire. Think about where you’re going and never mind where you’ve been. Don’t spend any more time justifying any of that stuff.”
– Abraham- Hicks
A suggestion which can help in feeling the relief you so much want to feel when in a place of negative emotion is to distract yourself to any topic which is easy for you to appreciate. As you do so, moment by moment you move closer to what you love feeling – ease, joy, love, free and worthy.
You may ask – “why should I do this? I am so justified in feeling the negative emotion that I am feeling.” Yes, you are right in feeling what you are feeling. If you tell ten people around you why you are upset or angry or any other negative emotion that you are feeling, they may all agree with you that you are right in feeling what you are feeling. You get to be right but you don’t get to be happy and happy is what you want to be, what you love being. Negative emotions have value as they help you in giving birth to new desires or amend the earlier ones but you don’t like when you are feeling negative emotions as that is not who you truly are (there could be situations where a negative emotion like anger feels better like when one is in despair as anger feels more powerful than despair but you don’t like to get stuck in anger for long….you eventually yearn to feel relief and ease).
You are pure positive energy and that is why you love feeling positive emotions. Don’t you like it when you feel joy? Don’t you feel good when you find yourself appreciating things/people/places/experiences? Don’t you find love such a wonderful feeling? The answer to these questions is yes and you do that because that’s who you are, that’s who your inner self is. When you hold yourself in negative emotion (however justified it may be), you are far away from your true inner self and the negative emotion is an indicator that you are separate or disconnected in that moment from who you truly are because of the thoughts you have chosen.
Whenever you become aware that you are feeling negative emotion and want to and more important, feel ready to think positive feeling thoughts, you can consider distracting yourself to a topic which you find easy to appreciate. Yes, it can be an effort in the beginning and that’s where distraction to a topic which is “easy” for you to feel good about helps. Distraction has huge power.
As you continue doing so more often every day, you will allow more moments on a daily basis where you are feeling the positive emotions you like to feel predominantly and consistently (not always but predominantly and consistently). As you find yourself more and more at this place of strength and feeling good, chances are high that you will be able to look at the topic which was painful for you in a way which gives you the relief you so much want to feel with regard to it (in many cases, because of the new, predominant and consistent vibrational place that you are in, you will find that the topic which was painful earlier has resolved itself and the solution is pleasing to you. If it hasn’t resolved, because of the place of strength (rather than struggle/ negative emotion/ resistance) that you are in, you will be able to look at it in a way which makes you feel better…may not be enthusiastic in that red hot minute but better than where you were earlier on it).
When in a place of positive emotions, not only will you be feeling what you want to feel but you will also allow the law of attraction to match you up with more positive feeling experiences. You will allow yourself to be matched up with the answer/solution that you seek in its full potential and in a way which has ease. The frequency/ feeling of the solution is different from the frequency of the problem. By allowing positive feeling thoughts predominantly and consistently, you become a match to the solution rather than the problem. You want the solution as you believe it will make you feel better. If you can feel better before it comes, you allow it to come to you easily and in it’s full glory.
You can thought by thought, moment by moment choose through your path of least resistance the thoughts that feel better to you. We have the ability to think the thoughts we want to think much more than we give ourselves credit for.
“Anytime you feel negative emotion, stop and say: Something is important here; otherwise, I would not be feeling this negative emotion. What is it that I want? And then simply turn your attention to what you do want. . . . In the moment you turn your attention to what you want, the negative attraction will stop; and in the moment the negative attraction stops, the positive attraction will begin. And—in that moment—your feeling will change from not feeling good to feeling good. That is the Process of Pivoting.”
