The BIG Reason Positive Thinking Doesn’t Work For You

By

negative beliefs, limiting beliefs, positive thinkingThere are times when you undertake positive work such as taking care of yourself, meditating, ensuring you remained centered and focused on the positive, you use EFT (Emotional Tapping Technique), or you chant and the results are exactly what you expect, you feel wonderful, worthy, you feel light and surrounded by the love of the Universe. Positive emotions infuse your life and you become certain  there is nothing you can’t accomplish or conquer! 

 

Then,  somebody cuts you off in traffic,  or you come home to a messy house, maybe your significant other is particularly argumentative, or yet another bill graces your mail box and you’re struggling with how to honor your financial commitments.  It feels as though suddenly your inner peace has evaporated.  Frustration, negativity, anger and stress leak in and you worry about your future, you feel upset with the people around you. You’re left wondering where the inner peace you worked so hard to cultivate has gone! You’re not willing to let the peace completely disappear so you find a moment to center yourself again and the peacefulness resumes, at least for a few hours, until again, you perceive something negative and the vicious cycle seems to start yet again. Do you ever feel like you are not doing enough positive work, or, the more you positive you create, the worse you feel when something throws you off?

I’m happy to share with you that this experience is perfectly normal, you are not alone. You are doing great and have definitely come a long way.  Don’t be hard on yourself, in fact, you must give yourself credit, and continue to encourage yourself to simply keep going. This is a sign that it IS time to take the next step on your journey and to go deeper within. External circumstances can trigger negative feelings and emotions which in turn shine a light on the beliefs we hold about ourselves, about others or our society. These beliefs, and thought habits limit us. The deeper the belief the fiercer our reaction to the situation is.

 

Imagine that following a long, difficult day at work you arrive home feeling exhausted. The house is a mess because the kids were having fun and playing and you see your partner napping on the sofa. Before you know it, you are yelling at the children, arguing and exchanging harsh words with your partner. 

Does this sound familiar? 

Interestingly, this scenario I described is a great example of the underlying belief that many people hold about themselves, the belief is “I’m not worthy”.  You feel awful, you feel sorry for yourself, and no where near worthy of the good stuff, which for most of us includes a clean home, a nice dinner waiting for you, being able to just sit and relax after you come home and feel secure that your bills are paid on time. 

In the moment the negativity starts to build you are not thinking about the fun your children were having, not considering the art work they might have created while waiting for your arrival, you didn’t think about your partner and what his or her day might have been like. Rather, in that moment,  the limiting belief(s) you hold with respect to yourself – the belief that you are not worthy – is fueling your actions, your words and your emotions.

 

So what can we do to change our beliefs?

 

There are many ways to change our beliefs; however, a very effective first step is to pay close attention to what triggers the negative emotions when they surface. Pay attention to how you feel, try to find the underlying emotion behind the negative feeling you are experiencing. 

Is it fear? A feeling of worthlessness? Are you feeling unloved? 

Have the courage to determine what the negative underlying emotion is. When you eventually come to realize that root belief of what is limiting you and causing you to experience this pain, you can begin to work on changing the specific belief.

 

Another great way to neutralize the negative and limiting beliefs we hold in our subconscious is through energy healing. Energy healing works wonders, and can remove the beliefs that limit and hold us back. To learn more about how and why we get limiting beliefs, you can read my article here. We can replace the negative beliefs we hold in our subconscious with positive ones. This facilitates creativity, allows you to feel good about yourself and others, and helps us gain momentum to take action toward creating the life you want, the life you deserve!

 

In my experience, although being positive is a perfect first step, you must also reprogram the negative beliefs that are holding you back and negatively impacting your life. Once you started to break up the negative patterns in your subconscious, you will see amazing results. What can you expect? Breaking free of addictions, new relationships, new opportunities lining up for you and much more. I’m not saying it’s easy to do, but I can guarantee you it’s totally worth it! 

Love, Daniela
