Ten Ways to STOP Inviting Negativity into Your Life

Have you ever asked – ‘Why Me?’…or ‘Why do bad things happen to good people?’ Are you wondering why your prayers and wishes have not worked? Or why thinking positive, donating to charity or being ‘nice’ has not really helped you transform your own life yet?

Here are some ways you can indeed change things for the better now:

  1. Stop Playing the Victim: Self pity, angry outrage, guilt tripping or fishing for sympathy are the worst things to do if you wish to have a better life. When you tell yourself and others how terrible things are for you, or how you are stuck in a horrid world, you are telling the universe that you deserve more of those terrible situations. Instead, be the change you seek, because the universe is within.self
  2. Find something to feel positive about: Look for the faintest potential of light in this darkness – you will find it, because there is something positive always hiding somewhere inside everything. It could be the sunshine or the rain, the stars or simply your breath. Or, imagine something positive and feel great as if you already have it, do not feel ‘wanting’ anymore. What you feel creates more of what you feel!man-828739_960_720
  3. Meditate: Instead of thinking and complaining about how life is bad for you close you eyes and be in the present moment – because you have the power to take the right action and change everything now and that is the only thing that counts. The more you meditate the more you will enhance your consciousness which is the real power.mediate sunset
  4. Consult Your Own Intuition: Chances are you wound up in negativity due to thinking, accepting or following wrong ideas. Yet, there is something inside all of us that always seeks our highest good. To be in touch with it and listen to your natural intuition is the best way to flow joyfully through life. Let your soul guide you now, no matter what other’s say. person-864804_960_720
  5. Love Yourself: If you thought being ‘nice’ to others is going to return your way as good karma, remember that giving is good karma only if you give enough to yourself too. If you are giving to others in the greed of receiving something directly or indirectly in return, but sacrificing your own good, you are telling the universe you do not deserve good. Real abundance is in knowing that all including you deserve the best. Be unconditional to yourself AND others.face-66317_960_720
  6. Stop Getting Involved with Negativity: If you really want a happier world for yourself and others stop consuming, sharing and chatting about negative news and sob-stories. Give attention instead to positive things because energy flows where attention goes and energy creates more of WHATEVER you focus upon. Think about solutions not problems.media
  7. Choose Positive Habits: Success and happiness can be inculcated by real and genuine effort. If you prefer to take drugs or drinks instead of really taking the effort to meditate or exercise or change your habits for the better from deep within , you cannot blame fate for your negative situations. You are always in-charge! choose
  8. Mind over Matter: It is not merely through outer physical efforts or external rituals that life is transformed. It takes deeper inner work. Transformation happens inside out. Else it is mere superficial change no matter which technique you follow. Let your mind create good now though every word, every thought, every thing.mind
  9. Soul over Mind: Your mind is only a tool of the Soul. The real power is in the Soul and its choices. When you handover the pen to your Soul or higher-self and allow it to write your story it will do a better job than the lower ‘you’ because its wisdom is infinite as compared to the limits of your outer-mind. We all have a common Soul or ‘Self’ which is all-powerful. It is the only real God or Goddess!hand-534867_960_720
  10. Truth over Illusion: If you cannot see beyond your immediate life problems and endless desires, seeking love, romance, money and popularity all the time…you are in illusion. The only thing real is the Self, all else is only a dream playing as life through the stage of your mind. Ask yourself who you are and find more about the mysteries of the universe for a change.

8 Solid Tips for Banishing Negativity this Shani Weekend

saturn-719332_960_720.png

The cycles of time and celestial tides are here to guide us again, this time to strongly banish or end all things identified as negative in your life! On 3rd of June Saturn is fully illuminated, while 4th of June is a Saturday named after Saturn, and an amavasya or no-moon night that is usually considered great for ending of anything unwanted, 5th of June is the annual Shani Jayanti dedicated to the planetary lord Saturn – the god of limitations and endings. Here is how you can align yourself with the natural cycles of the universe in mind, body and spirit this weekend with the super-powerful Saturn:

  1. DIG IT OUT: Introspect after meditating, let your deeper thoughts surface upwards, know your fears and you will be able to erase them soon. Being positive is not a cover-up job of hiding negativity or glossing over it. Being positive is a real inner transformation which you can do only with great strength and self-confidence. Delve into your unconscious and try to really face all those things you considered negative. These could be fears you have regarding your life, fears concerning your future, guilts about your past, regrets and sorrows, old pain and hurt, anger or anything else that should not be around any more. For those of you who think about the rest of the universe too – all those things about the world that made you sad, angry, fearful or worried. Write them down with BLACK ink on white paper. This way you are symbolically bringing out all those deeply buried negative emotions that were unwantedly controlling your life. Now you are in-fact gaining power over them with this simple act of writing them down. The colour black is connected to Saturn and symbolises endings.ink
  2. ASSERT YOUR POWER: At this point of time you are no longer someone who fears. You are aware that you and only you are in-charge of your life as an enlightened being. As With-In So With-Out! This is a truth of the universe that there is nothing that can happen outside which is not inside your mind already, especially your unconscious. Those people who merely think positive are often unable to achieve their goals because they have not done the deeper work of releasing the negative emotional blocks and negative beliefs they carried inside them all their life and possibly several lifetimes. Now with the awareness of what you feared and enlisting them all out, you have taken a major step towards really being powerful. Know that you are the single most powerful person in your YOUniverse who can NOW change everything for the better. As you are your own universe in the process of remaking, you know that Saturn is part of you – the power you have to end what you must so that something better can replace it. Affirm ‘I am the MOST powerful person in my universe and I choose to change these things right now’ person-1177312_960_720
  3. CONNECT WITH YOUR INNER SATURN: Within you lies the great and glorious master who can both transform the negative and manifest the positive. Your transformational power is symbolised by Saturn. Those rings around the planet remind you of the power you have to keep everything in careful control. You can limit whatever is in excess, whether it be a habit or addiction, a pattern that was negative or anything that was self-limiting. The planet is just a sign or symbol in divination that brings you back to your inner self. Its power is your inner power. The yantra below will help you connect with your inner Saturn. Focus upon it for a few minutes while repeating ‘Om Shanicharaye Namaha!’ and know Saturn to be a part of you.Saturn-Yantra
  4. SAY NO TO THE UNWANTED: The powers within you are at their peak and it is impossible for any negative energy to remain in your life from now onwards. You are consciously choosing to let go of all the unwanted. Firmly assert this by crossing out the negative things you wrote earlier in your list with black ink to mark their logical end. This means that they are no longer having any energy or power in your life. They have been cancelled out and released for good.crossout
  5. LET IT GO: As a sign that you have released the unwanted out of your system, you can now safely burn to ashes and flush away the crossed out sheet as if a heavy load has been taken away from you right now. Do this with conviction without any shred of doubt. Be eco-friendly in disposal and know that everything is being transformed by nature to something more useful in the process.Burning_4.jpg
  6. CLEANSE AND CLEAR: Letting go is complete only if you feel it from within. Your inner mind and soul will feel and know the difference. To make it real try smudging using incense, herbs such as sage or aromas that feel refreshing and cleansing to you. Diffuse this around you and on your body. Clean up your home, office, garden and every corner that felt clogged or blocked. Fix up or throw away gadgets and things that were unuseful. Clear up your desk and papers. You will know the value of this exercise in the form of increased prosperity, better health and peace of mind very soon.incense-stick-405899_960_720.jpg
  7. TRANSFORMATION: For each of the negative thing you have released and removed from your life, think of what you must now replace them with. Allow for a few days to feel the refreshing changes coming into your life as you have just released the negativity. In those days make a new list this time with red ink on white paper, thinking positive thoughts only and focusing on those worthy goals that make you truly happy with no doubt that they bring you only good. Red is the colour of life and vitality. Keep this positive list somewhere where safe where you can return later to refer to them and note your progress in the coming days, weeks or months. Know that each of your positive goals will manifest as and when the time is right. positive-455580_960_720.jpg
  8. GIVE THANKS: All things whether negative or positive were here in your life as a reminder of those deeply buried and repressed ideas or beliefs in your unconscious mind. You were here to heal and transform yourself and everything you saw and encountered in your journey in each lifetime was here to help you remember and heal. This Shani Jayanti is a good time to thank the universe for all these experiences that have helped you discover and rediscover yourself. You can give thanks to Saturn by offering sweets made of black til, donating black clothing or blankets, feeding black animals such as crows or black dogs and offering poojas or rituals to Saturn in temples dedicated to this planet as a symbolic thanks to this specific power. Doing these rituals mechanically is often unuseful but with awareness and self-realization their power is truly felt. shanidev.jpg                swatiprakashSwati Prakash is a spiritual author and can be followed onwww.amazon.com/author/swatiprakash
