“Be like melting snow–wash yourself of yourself.” ~ Rumi
Your negative feelings have nowhere to go. The negative feelings that you have are actually negative energy. This energy sits inside of you churning and festering until it finally erupts making you sick. Once this happens, it can be a long twisty road back to your life.
You can tell yourself to be happy, cheer up, get over it. But if you are going through a tough time, or you chronically suffer from negative feelings, maybe even leading to depression, you need something more. You need to redirect those negative feelings somewhere far away from you.
Negative energy is still energy and if it’s directed away from you and into something else you will be free of it. Once the energy is directed into something else, it no longer is negative, it’s just energy. And in this new place where it’s no longer negative it can become anything you want it to become.
But how do you redirect your negative feelings? You put them into something such as a creative endeavor. “Oh no!” you say you’re not creative? No worries. You could volunteer and help in schools, library, hospice. “Nope,” that’s not for you either? How about nature? A walk near a river, or on the beach, or around your neighborhood is a great place to dump the energy. What about directing it into love and seeing it burst into positive energy? Loving another being can do wonders.
Try to visualize a big red stop sign, and it’s telling you to just stop letting your ego make you sick by hoarding all that negative energy. Now, visualize bending your head down and all the negative energy pouring out and disappearing. Poof! It’s gone, and now you have a fresh start to only let the positive energy come in.
Don’t ever let your feelings turn into negative energy. If your ego ushers it in, kick it in the butt and redirect it. You know that you have better things to do with your life.
“Just can’t live that negative way … make way for the positive day!” ~ Bob Marley
