Understand the first steps to heal negative emotions through love, acceptance, and wholeness. Embrace your shadow side and begin healing at soul level.
If you have a spiritual healing business you know how important it is to keep your thoughts positive more often than not. Even if you are on your own spiritual journey, understanding if your thoughts are helpful or hurtful can go a long way in finding joy, love, and wholeness.
Often though, it is too easy to slip back to what once might have been comfortable and let the little gremlins out for another spin.
Can you really afford the luxury of negativity? You may wonder why I am calling negativity a luxury. It is because you have the power to consciously choose and change your thoughts. In another post I wrote about learning to love yourself and this is one more part of the journey.
Think of negativity as the opposite of love. Negativity is containing, expressing, or implying a denial or refusal. When you allow yourself to have negative thoughts you are separating yourself from Source Energy and Divine Love.
Unfortunately, I know all too well about negative emotions and thinking. Years upon years have gone by thinking the worst about people’s intentions and the worst possible outcomes. It was like a mental tape in my head, replaying itself continuously, with many of those outcomes coming true. There really is something to the point that you attract what you think about.
I guess the myriad of personal development books I have read so far in my life may have finally paid off. One day, I realized I was exhausted hearing about it. Completely exhausted. That was probably the turning point. I was so tired of not being in control of my emotions. I began to think about how my life would be if I continued these thought processes for another forty years. That wasn’t a pretty thought.
It is not say at all that I have been able to release all negative thoughts and emotions. They still creep up in certain situations. But these days, I can stand back and look at them a bit more objectively and mostly not let the mental tape in my head get turned on again.
How To Heal Negative Emotions
Any more, I do consider focusing on negativity a luxury. My brain apparently has enough down time to go down that path. What does that mean? That means that I have enough food, clothing, and shelter not need survival mode.
It means that I am not wanting or in need of the basics of life and have the time to indulge in negative thinking. I guess I realized and finally internalized that my thoughts create my emotions, and my emotions create my behaviors.
Steps To Heal Negative Emotions
So, what did I do? I started examining the core of each issue that appeared for healing. When you have a negative emotion or thought pop into your head, take a few minutes or longer if necessary to dig for the root cause.
The first step is acceptance. Can you accept that you have that emotion within you? It is a part of being whole, both the light and the shadow side.
For myself, I found many of them going back to childhood. I am sure that would be the same for many people.
Allow the anger to surface, acknowledge it, say thank you for it and then release it.
