5 Techniques to Eliminate Negative Thinking

I’m going to give you five excellent techniques to eliminate negative thinking from your mind. Wouldn’t it be great if negative thoughts came with warning signs reading, “It’s only a negative thought, you don’t have to believe it if you don’t want to?” Unfortunately, negatives don’t come like that. They come disguised as real problems, quietly slipping in when we’re not paying attention. If we’re not aware of the fact that our mind is the great trickster forever conjuring up negative thoughts, then we buy into every single destructive thought that occurs to us. The following techniques will give you ways of dealing with negative thoughts. That’s why they are so valuable. Each technique is separate and independent from the other. In fact, some of these techniques are contradictory to each other, but each is highly effective on its own or in combination with others, for eliminating negative thinking. […]

Invoking Synchronicity

Carl Jung, the brilliant and innovative protégé of Freud, coined the word “synchronicity.” Synchronicity, to Jung, referred to the strange and unusual encounters or events that happen to individuals which appear on the surface to have no causal linkage, and yet have such a profound meaning to the individual that the event was unlikely to be the result of mere chance. They happen to all of us, and usually we explain them away as being luck or coincidence, […]

The subconscious contains within it our unused potentials, as well as the personal blockages that keep us stuck in the various problem areas of our life. I sometimes refer to these as our light and dark shadows. The word shadow is a Jungian term and refers to those parts of us that are unconscious. Being unconscious, we do not see them, but we often see their effects in our life, that is we don’t see what causes the shadow, but we see the effect. […]

Listen to Your Instincts, They Hold Your Destiny

It is a breakthrough in our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world to discover that our body has access to information beyond what the mind can understand. The body feels the world energetically. The body feels and the mind thinks; these are two different ways of obtaining information. When we rely only on the mind and our logic we close ourselves off to a huge source of information. […]

Life Changes

Apparently a red-flanked bluetail from Asia was spotted last week in Vancouver, and it seems it is a big deal. Now I’m not a birder, so I don’t really get excited about these things, but I was intrigued when the speculation about how it got here was raging. One theory is that it was caught up in a major storm front and blown thousands of miles from its habitat. Hmmm… just like all our lives, I thought. […]

Our Success Helps Many; Our Failure Helps No One

It is a revolutionary idea and one that dramatically changes our life when we embrace it. Imagine believing that our success actually helps many people. When we believe this, it totally changes the way we think about success. Suddenly our success becomes a way by which we can help people, and we should believe this because when you closely scrutinize this concept it becomes obvious that this is true. […]
