Negative Thoughts and Manifestation

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to your Daily Mindfulness. In today's session, we're going to talk about negative thoughts and manifestation. In one of my online retreats recently, I received a question from a student. And she asked, when I have a fear based thought I'm scared that I'm manifesting something negative into my life, something bad. So I wanted to share how I responded to that since I think many people have this fear.

My response was not to worry because the existence of a thought by itself is not that powerful. Instead how we orient to that thought has much more significance. For instance, acceptance of a negative thought interrupts the negative momentum of that thought. It exists, but no longer with the same weight. And therefore, no longer with the same cause and effect power.

We're not lost in the thought. We're just seeing it. Oh, there's a thought. Manifestation, AKA, how we create our life is so much deeper than just the thoughts. Moving through the mind.

A positive thought with unresolved deeper emotional patterns does not cut it. You may say you want something in your mind, but your body could be bracing against. In that case, it doesn't matter how many positive thoughts you have. There's still something that is pressing the brakes. This is where and why moving toward our pain so that it can be healed and integrated is actually essential for becoming more receptive to the life we are excited to create and want to create so that we're not subconsciously sabotaging what we want, even though we're thinking positive.

Fear of a fear-based thought is reinforcing a fear loop, a scarcity mindset, if you will. Acceptance of a fear-based thought is anchoring you in love, spaciousness, empowerment, and the understanding that you are much bigger than your thinking mind. So the takeaway here, how you orient to what is arising has a much bigger impact on what you attract into your life than the actual content of what moves through your mind. Thank you for your practice. Let's settle in for today's meditation.
