Your Thoughts Plus Emotion Create Thought Forms
Think of a time you walked into a place and you felt peace surround you. Now think of a time when you felt discord surround you. Both times you experienced what is called thought forms. This is when the energy of your thoughts and feelings “take form.” An energy is created which is so strong it can be felt by others if they are paying attention.
Creating a Negative Thought Form
A passing thought, one without feeling, does not create a thought form. You need the power of your feelings to make such a creation. This is why it is crucial to manage your thoughts and emotions. What you hold in your mind surrounded by emotion stays with you. It can be supportive for you or it can hinder you.
Let’s say you are having a bad day. Things didn’t go well at work. Your lunch ended up in your lap and there was a traffic snarl which prevented you from getting home as scheduled. And, yes, when you walked in an hour late, the dog hadn’t been able to hold it and had pooped in an inconvenient place.
With each new thing that went wrong, your feelings of distress become stronger and more pronounced. You can almost feel a little black cloud of frustration or depression surround you. The longer this cloud of negative emotion surrounds you, the more difficult it is for you to pull yourself out of the emotional dumps.
Transforming the Negative to a Positive
To pull yourself out of the dark hole you find yourself, you need to get rid of the black cloud. How do you do that when one thing after another has gone wrong? It takes an act of will and determination on your part. Here are a few tricks.
1. Focus on your heart. You will find that your mood lightens when you do this.
2. Breathe in and out of your heart. This helps you to become even more centered.
3. See those heavy feelings as a cloud and see them being washed out of your body and into the ground.
4. Imagine a time of great joy, peace or relaxation. Really feel it and put a color to it.
5. Allow that color to expand outwards and totally surround you.
You’ve now changed the reality you created from one of darkness to one of joy.
If you do this on a regular basis you will find yourself being more disciplined about the thoughts and feelings you have. You will become aware that they are transitory and you can change them to something that will move you forward in life.[ad_2]
