REAL POWER: MAXING OUT ON GOD'S LOVE
NEVER ATTACK AND ARGUE
WITH NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
Negative thoughts are parasites.
They live off the energy you give them when you focus on them.
Focusing on them is like giving them a blood transfusion with your own
blood. You become psychologically anemic as they suck the blood from
your mental veins. They become stronger as you become weaker. You
destroy yourself when you do this.
When negative thoughts pop into your
mind, they are weak and vulnerable. If you donít infuse them with
your energy, they die. They canít attack and suck the energy from
your mind by themselves. They wait for you to do the job for them.
The energy transfer begins only if you focus on them. You start to
wilt and wither as they suck the strength from your soul.
The solution to this dilemma is
simple. Itís not even a dilemma. Donít argue with your negative
thoughts. They go away if you donít argue with them.
The problem is that all your fighting
instincts tell you to do just the opposite. Fight, struggle, you can
win this battle. Thatís what most people do. They fight to the point
of exhaustion, and they wonder why they lost the battle after such a
valiant fight. Every story you read about achievement and success
tells you that if you fight the good fight, eventually you win.
The story is true. If you fight the
good fight, you will win, unless you are fighting against negative
thoughts. There is a time to fight, and a time to let go.
When it comes to negative thoughts,
itís time to let go. There is no other way to get negativity out of
your mind. Fighting with it will not make it go away. It will only
make it stronger.
ITíS BETTER TO SWITCH THAN FIGHT
When you deal with negative thoughts,
you must ignore your instinct to fight and switch to a strategy
guaranteed to work. Acknowledge the presence of the negative thoughts
and refocus your mind in a positive direction.
The assault of negativity will wither
in the presence of Godís love. When negative thoughts enter your
mind, repeat the following six words: THE POWER OF GOD IS LOVE. Those
six powerful words push the negativity from your mind without giving
the negative thoughts attention or focus they donít deserve. They
donít give them even a single molecule of your psychological energy.
Those six words shift your focus to
the most powerful force in the universe. Love. The power of God in
the world is love, and the power of God in your life is love. Itís
time to appropriate some of that power and apply it to yourself. Itís
time to love yourself and accept yourself as you are.
If negative thoughts persist in a
relentless attack, you can pull out all stops and repeat the following
ďGod is love and works by love. The
power and presence of God in my life is love. God loves and accepts
me the way I am, but He loves me too much to let me stay that way.
God loves me from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, and it
does not get any better than that. There is no limit to how good my
life can become when I open my heart and mind to the power of Godís
love. I will max out on his love.Ē
Repeat these sentences twenty times
to push your mind in a positive direction. Soon you will forget about
the negative thoughts, and your mind will be focused on Godís love.
Repeating a positive affirmation
twenty times may seem like a mindless way of dealing with negative
thoughts. But remember, all you are doing is asking for equal time.
Your destructive negative thoughts relentlessly hammer you dozens of
times with the same negative message. If you repeat a positive
affirmation only one time, you are going to lose the battle of focus.
The war against negative thoughts is
fought on the battlefield of focus. When you focus on negativity you
lose the battle. When you focus on Godís love, you win. Go ahead and
repeat the affirmation twenty times. A tenacious focus on Godís love
will make a big difference in your life.
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS CANNOT SURVIVE IN A
HEART THAT IS FULL OF LOVE
When negative thoughts are on your
doorstep, donít invite them in. There is no reason to take punishment
from these cannibalistic invaders. They come into your life for only
one reason. They are there to devour you. When you politely answer
the door with a heart full of love, they quickly leave.
Negative thoughts can never survive
in a heart full of Godís love. The only way you will ever make
negative thoughts retreat is to love them away.
When you acknowledge the presence of
negative thoughts, you are only facing reality. When you donít argue
with them, you donít give them any of your power. When you love and
accept yourself as you are, the power of Godís love flows through your
life and washes the negativity from your mind.
Be kind to yourself. Donít beat
yourself up when negative thoughts pass through your mind. Donít
judge yourself in a harsh manner because you live in a negative
world. You are not a failure when negative thoughts temporarily
reside in your mind.
God created you, and He created
love. The power of love makes you stronger and it makes negative
thoughts weaker. When your heart is full of Godís love, itís full of
Godís presence and power. Negative thoughts wither and blow away in a
heart full of love.
Never argue with negative thoughts.
Never fight. Use the power of love to wash negativity from your mind.
The most positive force and powerful force in the universe is Godís
love. When I shift my mental focus to Godís love, I break the back of
negative thinking and push my mind in a positive direction. When my
heart is full of love, itís full of Godís presence and power.
Negative thoughts can never survive in a heart full of love. The
positive power of Godís unconditional love drives negativity out of my
life. For as long as I live, I will max out on Godís love.
