Happiness via discarding of negative energy

Happiness via discarding of negative energy

 

01-A Beach Promenade - 1896- Michael Peter Ancher-Danish, 1849-1927

 

The whole concept of negative energy may be an alien thought to the steadfast realist.  Nevertheless, it does exist and it manifests in various forms that sometimes foster unhappy, unfulfilled or unsettled lives. 

This is not to say that one can shirk off all responsibility concerning one’s state of affairs.  One still needs to be held accountable for their actions, relationships, beliefs, thoughts and overall well being.

Meanwhile, through applications of the suggestions listed below, you can discard any unpleasantness and, ultimately improve your life’s sparkle:

 

Visual Stimulation:

 

An inspirational movie with a great narrative, paintings, photographs are one way to, through visual and vicarious experience, eliminate that pesky negativity.  And the common joy that is shared by many is the experience of a seaside excursion and summertime fun activities. To get you started on this, here’s a gallery of artworks set in a slideshow.

Music:

Who would dispute that Music is a required food for the soul. Depending on the melody, the mood is transformed into joy, excitement, somber reflections, peace or despair. As one has the choice however, chose carefully to attain happiness and to re-align good energies in yourself and your space.

Furthermore, if you can, play an instrument, sing a song or simply listen to an upbeat melody, you’ll be well on your way to fostering that upbeat energy. It’s a well documented fact that singing or listening to buoyant music promotes good health. It certainly can improve cognition, strengthen your lungs, lower blood pressure and improve posture. And the best part is, you can take it along with you wherever you go and whatever you do.

Foliage and Flora:

A leisurely walk in a forested region does wonders to ease those weighty concerns. The cacophony of Nature’s concert soothes all ears while bountiful oxygen fills the lungs and you are energized. 

Regarding indoor space plants are an essential garnish for establishing a positive space.  The soul is lightened by the confirmatory accoutrement of green hues of leaves and stems sometimes supporting colorful flowers. And that’s not all; plants also act as energy filters by cleaning and improving air quality. Moreover, it propels us to open curtains or blinds to invite the sunshine, the bright beneficial light, to energize and filter the room of unwanted negative energy.

 

Fragrance to delight the senses:

 

Here, a caution is warranted as we live in an age where some people have serious sensitivity to certain artificially made scents, sprays, mists, colognes or perfumes. One thing is for certain, bad odors and smells do beget negative moods; whereas memorable ones (like mom’s cooking or clean laundry) and pleasant, heavenly scents, uplift the spirits and make one function more effectively.

Bear in mind however, depending on the individual’s preference and life experience, certain aromas and ointments can either be pleasant or repulsive and detestable. Use common sense before striving to conceal those pesky, persistent odors while concurrently clearing away negative energies through the use of readily available store bought oils, sprays or catchy gismos. 

For the superstitious, there are also these options available:

Smudging:

 

Regardless of race and creed, a typical process for cleansing space of negative energy uses:  incense sticks, containers with lit incense within, lit candles, or bundled up dry herb leaves that are smoldering and releasing smoke.   The smoke is the key factor here, believed to be responsible for cleansing the adverse negative energies.  Carry the smoldering smoke throughout a home, business, special abode, holy building or sacred grounds. In cleansing your home, once you’ve reached the stopping point, then you can open a window to allow all the negativity to flow out.  

Use of Crystals:

 

Obsidian and black tourmaline are two of many crystals that are used in absorbing negativity. Place these in spaces requiring cleansing; in particular, around electronics that are known to foster disruptive, chaotic energy.

 

Below are some of my favorite paintings, enjoy! :

Silent Night

Silent night, holy night

All is calm, all is bright

Round yon Virgin Mother and Child

Holy Infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!

Shepherds quake at the sight

Glories stream from heaven afar

Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!

Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night

Son of God, love’s pure light

Radiant beams from Thy holy face

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Beluga Sense- Problem Solving

Beluga sense- Problem Solving

If you are one of those people waiting for a problem-free time in order to enjoy life or waiting to reach some goal before you have any joy, than you are destined to lead  a dismal and frustrating life.

Problem-free times are a rarity and even when they do happen they don’t last too long. This has to do with the nature of our problem-solving ability as we, more often than not, focus on facts or situations that cause us to be unstable or incomplete.  Whether you experience life as positive or negative will depend on how you regard life’s problems and the actions you take to resolve them.  Life can be more enjoyable, exciting and fun if you consider each difficulty or dilemma you encounter as a learning experience, or better still, as a game, a challenge that tests your aptitude and your innate potential.   Your existence is enriched and you experience delight in every moment when you imagine your life as the ongoing process of passing from one circumstance to another instead of waiting for that certain attainment of your specific goal.

Exercise:

  • Each morning when you awake, ask yourself with joyful enthusiasm, “I wonder what interesting problems need be solving today.”  With a light heart anticipate the surprise elements that each day presents so as not to be caught unawares.
  • Focus your attention on each problem that presents itself. Don’t fight it; rather, give thanks for it being there to provide you with that mental challenge, then go for it.
  • At the conclusion of each day, take time to congratulate yourself for dealing effectively with or dilemma whatever presented itself, and for resolving it to the best of your ability.
  • And last but not least, laugh; laugh heartily at everything and anything, infusing your soul with that ray of happiness and light.

How to Cease Negative Thinking

How to Cease Negative Thinking

The best way would be to replace negative thoughts with good ones.  When you concentrate on just blocking it, you are in fact reinforcing or furthering the negativity. Negativity begets negativity. If you can make light of them, all power to you! If not, just try shrugging it off and direct your concentration only on the positive thoughts, actions and images.

Keep this saying in mind: There is a good thing in every bad thing that happens.

Practice good thoughts often and it will become easier in due course. Start by appreciating being alive for example, each breath of air you inhale, the five senses, happy sounds, the food you eat,  loved ones, family and friends. Be grateful for good health and the absence of serious pain, recount your favourite hobbies, and meditate on the beauty of nature expressed by all living creatures, objects and places.  Be generous in your charitable acts and deeds. When you come upon another being lavish unstinting compliments and praises on them. Each time you focus on good things and inwardly give thanks, that feeling of contentment reenergizes your spirit.  As you plant the seedlings of joy deep within your heart your life will be transformed into a more favourable state where you shall reap with the least effort all the benefits of a bountiful harvest of peace, good health, joy and prosperity.
