This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
When I have a negative thought about something, I try working through it…but I end up focusing on it so much, I feel like I’m bringing more negativity to me.
Then it creates a fear in me like, “OMG, I’m bringing in sickness or other things I’m worried about…even though I’m saying ‘no, I’m not going to have those problems.’ The more I try to flip it, the more it seems like I’m making it even stronger. Am I using the law of attraction incorrectly?
First off, the law of attraction actually isn’t one of the universal laws. It’s a subsidiary idea of the law of vibration—which says whatever you’re “expecting” in your life (good or bad) is also what you’re in harmony with.
What people call the “law of attraction” is a complete misnomer. It’s not an actual law.
If you’re thinking about negative scenarios, you don’t need to say, “No, I’m not going to have those problems.”
Instead, the first thing you’d go to is responsibility, then gratitude.
Responsibility is about owning every single result in your life, and knowing what you did to either cause it or contribute to it showing up.
Gratitude makes you look at what’s good in your life. Then you start moving in that direction.
So the idea is, you don’t acknowledge the negative thing at all.
The only way a negative thought can grab you is if you believe in some kind of fear. In every case, fear is always based on a lie.
It’s really that simple. Just don’t overcomplicate it.
