Literature on positive thinking and positive thought has been one of the cornerstones of the modern-day, mainstream self-improvement movement in western culture. Almost every technique, school or modality emphasizes the benefits of being positive, but in my experience as a healer, being positive can come in the way of being authentic.
Concepts such as expressing gratitude and always being positive have become buzzwords in the current New Age world. However, when you look deeper into these concepts, there is a seed of untruthfulness that is sometime (not always) embedded in it. To give you an example, imagine something negative happening – it could be when something you have been working on for a while and put a lot of time and energy into suddenly falls apart, be it a job, a project, or a relationship. Intuitively, when I tune into the authentic moment, I feel disappointment, sadness and grief. However, if you start exerting conceptual platitudes like “I am grateful for this collapse, it is for the best”, you rob yourself of the space and honest sensations that come from feeling those emotions.
The larger issue I have with this – being someone who is in the field of helping to heal people – is that positive thinking can be a detriment to healing deep-seated, unconscious patters and issues.
Unconscious patterns that manifest in our life can be healed with consciousness. But consciousness in itself does not judge energy. It does not see things as either positive or negative, or good and bad. Energy is energy. It simply exists. This ability to see things for what they really are is the first and possibly most important step to healing.
In my experience, the pressure to think positive thoughts exists subversively in the undertones of our culture. If we express real feelings and emotions, they are often viewed as negative thinking. Negative in a way which has a social stigma attached to it; a person is often viewed a lesser evolved for not being able to see the positive in every situation – no matter how dire the situation realistically may be. However, in the world of energy transmutation, embracing the negative in the circumstance is the key to freedom. Think of the time when you have said no to a person, job, relationship or proposition, only to find a whole new world of possibilities opening up to you. All by following the simple, negative act of saying NO.
Positive thinking can sometimes glaze our vision with unrealistic version of reality. Acceptance, humility and truth are the sobering antidotes to this socio-psychological condition. Healing starts with truth; the closer we can get to seeing ourselves for all of our attributes, both positive and negative, the more power and control we have to navigate through our lives with grace and authenticity.
To me, the goal of healing and self-improvement is BLISS. Bliss is our true nature, and therefore, returning to bliss becomes like returning to truth. The path to bliss is about shedding restrictive old ego programming. My particular technique uses the art of activating the DNA, reading the programs embedded within our DNA, which are exemplified in the patterns we constantly repeat in our lives, and then recognizing higher vibrational paradigms that make us feel good every time we go through that loop. Both positive and negative energy are used in perfect balance to create the higher vibrational paradigms, as it really is the sacred union of these two energies that generates bliss in our lives, bodies and relationships.
