    There are times I just don't wake up
    because when I'm awake I always wanna give up
    but I know my light is gonna rise up
    I just need to keep my head up
    :hug:
    People, let's stay positive :)

    :) that's an awesome little poem cheer :hug: you're right, it's hard but we have to try and be positive...I am learning to change my ways and look more at the positive than the negative. It's really hard to do but I know if I persist, I will eventually think positive before the negative. The key is to never give up.

    Positive Thinking

    The Air signs rule the intellect and Aquarius is one of them. The deeper we and our world move into the Aquarian Age, the more we become aware that thinking is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation. Our thoughts have created our present reality and are colouring it. Today’s thinking is bringing our future reality into being. Negative thinking patterns all too easily draw us into a downward spiral of negativity. Given time, they take us deeper and deeper into the vortex of depression, until one can no longer see something pleasant in anyone or anything.

    The good news is that this kind of thinking is nothing but a bad habit that can and indeed is meant to be changed, by us. We may have brought it with us from previous lifetimes into this one with the intention of doing better this time round. Changing our ways of thinking is an empowering experience. It puts us in charge of our character and our life and enables us to actively and positively influence the flow of our destiny. One of the almost immediate effects of positive thinking is that our life appears brighter to us and others find us more attractive. For their sake and our own, it’s well worth any small effort we make. Here are a few tips of how to go about it:

    • Start every day by reminding yourself that you are worthy of love and of all the good things that life has to offer. Stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself things like: ‘I deserve the best’, ‘I am a special and unique being of light’ and/or ‘I love and I am being loved’, ‘I am courageous and strong’, ‘I know I can cope’, and so on and so forth. Use your creative imagination to invent affirmations that are right for you. Affirmations may initially seem silly, but they do work. If you practise believing in yourself, the accompanying positive feelings will eventually rise naturally from within.

    • However, if you encounter the resistance of your inner child self that cannot accept what you are suggesting – as I frequently do – you might like to try one of my methods. Stand or sit in a meditative frame of mind, hug yourself. Imagine that it is your vulnerable and inner child you are hugging, then try to enter into a dialogue with it. For example, as if gently musing to myself, I might say: ‘Do you know, you are special and unique,’ or ‘you are a beloved child of the Universe, you have a right to be here.’

    When I approach my inner child in this way, it seems to be more willing to listen to and accept my suggestions. After all, what I am telling my child self is the truth, as I know it now, yet did not when I was a child. Again, be creative and experiment; feel within what you need right now and set about finding what works for you. Having found a good method, please do not forget to pass it on to others, including me.

    • Learn to recognise negative language, yours and that of others. Ban all talk of ‘If only…’ or ‘I am so stupid’ or ‘I am fat’. A friend of mine told me how, when she wanted to lose some weight, she observed that when she caught herself thinking: ‘I am fat and ugly’, she automatically reached for something sweet. However, when she said to herself: ‘I am slim and beautiful’, there was no craving for sweet things; she also felt taller and enjoyed better posture.

    • Cut down on your contacts with negative thinkers. If you live with one, spend as little time as possible with them and look for the company of those who have a positive approach to life.

    • If you cannot avoid meeting people who irritate and annoy you, it helps to make a list of their good points before seeing them. Doing this helps to make the meeting more bearable; it might even become enjoyable.

    • As much as you can, avoid the whingers, whiners and moaners of this world. ‘Oh, isn’t it all awful!’ and ‘Look what state our world is in!’ people are no longer appropriate company for you. They are in a negative mindset one can all too easily get stuck in. In your mind, present them with a packet of whinger biscuits and move on. You are a budding healer and a wise one and owe it to yourself to look for the company of people with a positive outlook on life. With a bit of effort and practice, you soon will be able to see that there is something good in everything and everybody, if you but open our inner eyes and look for it.

    • Thank all the people in your life who treated you badly, forgive them and do not forget to thank them. ‘Why on Earth should I do that?’ I hear you ask. Look at them from a different perspective and you will be able to recognise that they have been great teachers to you. If you are anything like me, then they are the ones who helped you most of all to become the one you are now. They have shown you and me, through their behaviour, the way we no longer want to be. In that way, they surely have been the best teachers the great wisdom of life could ever have sent our way. And that, you see, is a prime example of the art of positive thinking for you.

    • The more frequently we remind ourselves of our abilities and ambitions, the more likely we are to reach our goals. Therefore, make lists of them and think about all your achievements and of good times that lie ahead. When something goes wrong, it is likely that negative feelings come up. That is the way we have been reacting for most of this lifetime, so we cannot help it, but we can choose how we respond to adversity. Take time to feel your anger or sadness, but then resolve that you wish to learn from what has happened; in this way something good can come out of every experience.

    • When you are getting up and it’s raining, don’t take one look outside and spoil your day by groaning: ‘What a miserable day! Act like the healer you are and open your window wide. Take a few deep breaths and savour the purified and cleansed air that’s coming in to greet you. Listen to the rain, enjoy the sound and know that the Earth and everything in her loving embrace is being cleansed, purified and healed. Should it be raining heavily, give thanks for it because you know that we and our world are in dire need of all the cleansing and healing the Universe sends us.

    Remember that It is infinitely wiser than you and I are ever likely to be, and make the most of whatever is on offer, on any day. Rest safely in the knowledge that there is a sound and wise reason for everything and remind yourself that those who look for the good can always find it, in everything.

    • If you can spare the time, put on some weatherproof clothes and footwear. Take an umbrella and go for a walk, ideally where you can be with some trees. You will then be able to feel and take part in their enjoyment of the blessing that is coming down from the heavens. Splash in some puddles, like a small child – your inner child is sure to love it! Listen to the drumming of the rain on your umbrella; it’s music of a very special kind. Stop every so often, breathe extra deeply and so consciously take part in the cleansing and healing of Mother Earth.

    • When the Sun comes out again, notice how everything looks bright, clean and refreshed. Know that the same is happening inside you and give thanks and praise to father Sun in the sky and mother Earth. Both are physical manifestations of our great and loving Mother/Father Creator, whose light shines upon and warms us all.

    Breathe in the golden healing light that comes directly from the temple of healing in the heart of the Sun beyond the Sun. Quietly affirm what you are doing and feel how the love of God that comes down to the Earth through the Sun in sky above us. Pray that it should flow through you and from there into Mother Earth and all her kingdoms for the blessing and healing of the life she holds in her loving embrace. At the end of each day, do not forget to thank God and the Angels for another special day of healing and peace, which it has been not only for you but for all life.
