There’s a good reason that kids like the light left on. There’s a reason some people are afraid of the dark. Because everyone knows the negatives are developed in the dark!

One of the best breeding grounds for negatives is a mind left to its own devices, unfocused, undisciplined, unloved. Those minds have negatives by the huge litter and they happily give them away to anyone who comes near. And, those minds tend to enjoy getting together and running down their huge lists of “Ain’t it awful?” “S/he done me wrong.” and “Life is terrible and no one gets out alive!” just to name a few. Do you know any groups who love to commiserate? It’s absolutely true that misery likes company.

What are you doing to keep your mind focused, disciplined, loved and expanding? When we wrote the book, Soul Solitude: Taking Time for Our Souls to Catch Up, we wanted to share the straight-forward ideas for creating a positive journey consciously to the life, love and livelihood that you might want to create. It certainly starts with staying out of the metaphoric dark and maintaining the ability to see and choose your path. It offers great insights that will help you stay away from the stock phrases of the “dark-dwellers:”

  • The world is out to get me.
  • Nobody loves me.
  • I’ll always be alone.
  • Life is never fair.
  • Everybody else gets help and I have to do it alone.
  • Even the people who love me are doing so because they want something.
  • There’s no one who cares whether I live or die, succeed or fail.
  • There’s not enough time, money, luck, love, or ….
  • Nothing I do gets me where I want to go.

When you seriously want to consciously create the life you most want, you’ll stay out of the dark! Because that’s where the negatives develop!

Love to hear your thoughts on how you stay out of the dark, so, please share them below.

    1. When I connect with light positive spirited people, I automatically become more like that.
    2. Reminding myself of all there is to be thankful for.
    3. Lifting up someone else.
    4. Receiving a hug from my husband.

    Thank you for being a light in my life and helping me stay in that light place.

    Love and Light,
    Laura

    How do we Develop our Negatives in the Dark?
    This is such a brilliant little piece of peace!! PERFECTLY expressed! I began working with fearful and negative thoughts many years ago – and it’s been quite successful. I began as if I was cleaning my house of unwanted “guests”. Sometimes the mind is so adept at these thoughts (the unwanted guests) that I wasn’t even aware of the soap opera being created. It even took a while to identify who was me and who was my mind. Over time, I Me The one I am, grew and took charge.

    I like my mind to be a beautiful landscape or home. Any thoughts that do not generate or create feelings of dedication, power, happiness, curiosity,and a desire to ‘follow through’, are unwelcome and they are invited to leave. So many have NEVER returned because the ‘environment’ no longer suits them!

    How do we Develop our Negatives in the Dark? That is an excellent question! It helps one to FOCUS one’s LENS more on the IMAGES and SUBJECT MATTER one allows into his/her mental FRAME of reference. Picture that. Puns aside, it’s a great question.
