Removing the Negativity

Is Everyone Around You Negative?

People who are just choosing the pathway to a positive life, and are awakening to their own potential to literally create the world around them, often wonder what to do about the negative people around them. I hear such statements as, "I am trying hard to think positive, but everyone around me is negative!"

Retraining our thinking and emotional patterns takes work, and commitment. As our thinking patterns and emotional patterns change, so does our vibration. We attract things of like vibration. Many of these people will seemingly disappear from your life as your life starts to change, as you are no longer attracting each other.

As for relatives, who are negative, I am constantly asked questions in regard to what to do about the effect those may have. It doesn't mean you have to release these people from your life, as you are brought together for a reason, and to bring each other growth.

We cannot change other people. We can, however, change within ourselves. The negativity is only absorbed because it is allowed to. What happens when a person is being negative, and it has an impact on us, is the negativity touches on something within ourselves that needs to be resolved, healed, or otherwise let go, and is a sign of work to be done within. Get to the core of why it brings the feelings it brings.

Learn to accept others as they are. By not having an expectation of how someone should be or how they should react to situations, we are releasing any effect they may have on our emotions. Know that when a person is negative, they are manifesting what is within them into their outside life. Once it is seen for what it is, the impact it may have on one diminishes greatly.

Changing our thinking and emotional patterns is a journey of realization as well as a journey of awakening. Though, it does not happen overnight, with constant awareness of your thought patterns, and emotional patterns, you will see it become easier and easier. Pay attention to what is manifested in your life, and as your patterns change, so too, will you notice your life turn around right before your eyes!

Beth, thank you for putting into words what has been buzzing around my brain. It helped me to sharpen my perspective much more. I've become aware about certain patterns, which also ties in with your excellent "Are You Here For Rescue" (http://hubpages.com/hub/Are-You-Here-For-Rescue) article. As I change my energy, can easily transform negative family/friend situations into positive ones, or am now able to release toxic relationships.

Thank you for your simple clarity!
