Positive thinking and affirmations are supposedly a cure all for every problem in your life.
Some people will tell you to completely ignore reality. Supposedly, if you ignore something, it will go away.
The positive thinking idea is that you can have such a high vibration that only good things happen. Everything else is supposed to fall out of existence.
My personal choice is to look both ways before crossing the street. And I choose to read contracts before signing them.
Let’s look at a couple of definitions.
Positive is what you like.
Negative is what you don’t like.
The alternative to positive thinking is the approach of deleting negatives. After you delete enough negatives, there is nothing left but the wonderful you.
However, it seems that you can keep deleting negatives forever. If we do nothing but delete negatives, we can create holes in the energy fields around our bodies. This opens the door for more negatives to enter.
With either of these systems we can get into a state where we’re resisting negatives.
You know what happens when you resist things. They persist.
When we get into resisting negativity, we can actually intensify the negativity. This is one of the traps of positive thinking.
If you spend much time with the audio meditations on this website, you’ll see that the exercises add positives while subtly letting go of negatives.
Transformational Breathing energizes your body and energy field. At the same time, if you breathe into uncomfortable feelings, you release those uncomfortable feelings.
One good approach is to start working on some project that excites you. When negatives come up, and they certainly will, you simply release them. The meditation audios will help you.

A few days ago the latest book from Abraham showed up in my life. I’ve been devouring the information and the processes.
The idea is that you focus on the positive and totally remove your attention from the negative. You expand whatever you focus on.
I can tell you one thing. After doing the processes, I feel really, really good.
There will be more about this as I progress.
Note: I originally wrote this article in 2004.

I have written the Blissercise Book and have done hundreds of blissercises (bliss exercises). Blissercises go way beyond positive thinking because they:
- bypass the logical mind and work with the super consciousness
- work with the Real You rather than the false identity that we thing we are.
