My name is Heather Matthews, and I am a transformational speaker, life coach, and an expert on energy flow.
I spent years of my life chasing the carrot of more money and more time all because I believed that if I just worked hard enough, I’d eventually get there…
Yet all I needed was one simple secret technique that turned everything around for me… the secret that allowed me to get more, while doing less – the secret behind “The Secret”.
Plain and simple and as crazy as it sounds, the only way to quit struggling and instead start feeding endless cash and abundance into your life like an ATM machine on hyper-speed… is by giving up on hard work and forcing the Universe to give you everything you’ve ever wished for.
So, how do you do that?
It’s surprisingly easy to get started. You just need to follow these 10 Super Simple Steps to Attract Everything You’ve Ever Wanted:
Step #4: Let the negativity pass
In 1994 Dr. Masuru Emoto launched his famous study that observed the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on the crystalline structure of water. Emoto hired photographers to take pictures of water after being exposed to the different variables and subsequently frozen so that they would form crystalline structures. The results were nothing short of remarkable: the water subjected to positive, loving, peaceful stimuli is far more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing than that the water subjected to dark, negative provocations.
The implication is that positive and negative thinking have a major impact on our environment. We are where we are because of what we have thought about in the past. Thoughts become things. We are consciously or subconsciously always thinking about something. The problem is that we usually think more about the things we don’t want than about the things we do want. And just like the water subjected to hurtful words, we consequently find ourselves in less than ideal circumstances.
The human body is 60% water, so it makes sense that our thoughts would impact our conditions. A thought creates a feeling of a similar nature. This thought and feeling will dictate the action you take. A repetition of this thought and feeling will result in repeated action which will create a habit. If the original thought was negative, this habit will be negative. This negative habit, as to be expected, will cause unwanted circumstances or results in your life. The negative results will then generate related negative beliefs. This negative belief will spawn another negative though if appropriate steps are not taken to arrest this cycle of dysfunction.
This common example should drive the point home: You have set a goal to earn twice your current salary. (GREAT FOR YOU!) You have been inspired to go for another job in Public Relations that will pay you a salary a little over your goal amount. You interview and are shortlisted for the position. On the morning of your final interview as you enthusiastically stand in front of the mirror dressing up, an inner dialogue begins. A voice inside your head begins to engage you in nasty banter:
“Wow! Look at the size of your head.” It says. Before you can answer back, it adds: “and it’s not just a big head, it’s also bald and gray.” You manage to answer back with something like “My head is not big.”
This inner voice won’t shut up, and it goes on to say: “Ah Pareto’s Ratio! Your nose is 4 times as big as everyone else’s, and this is supposed to be a PR interview? Looks matter!” You do your best to silence this inner voice to no avail. The negativity is winning when you begin to get dispirited. Doubt, worry, anxiety, and stress lead to a less than stellar interview performance.
Does this sound familiar? Almost everyone has had this experience at one point or another.
The quickest way to get rid of negative thoughts is to replace them with positive, affirming thoughts.
In fact the shorter the positive affirmation, the better. Single positive words can be very powerful. Just repeating words such as peace, joy or love to yourself can do the trick.
Another technique that can be very reliable in ousting negative thoughts and feelings is a genuine broad smile. A few of them can change your entire mood for the better and your thoughts will follow suit.
I can’t bring this discussion to a close without referring to the first article in this series: delve into your life and look for the slightest thing you can be thankful for. Begin to wholeheartedly thank the Universe, God, The Great Spirit, etc. for Its goodness. Show sincere gratitude for the good in your life. Trust me, negative thoughts and emotions hate this practice with a passion. These thoughts will flee without so much as a good-bye! And you can be about the business of setting and achieving your goals.
