If forgiveness and gratitude are two powerful ways to begin the healing process and connect deeper to the Highest Love we are capable of receiving and experiencing within us, then it stands to reason the result will be positive thoughts, positive feelings and positive action in every day life. The current moment is where our value actually lies. Our Joy can be present with us when we are in a positive state of thoughts, feelings and actions.
Obtaining this state takes mindfulness and determination, along with awareness of where our Consciousness is at all times. Our greatest Consciousness is inherently positive because our True Connection and Unity to the Great Cosmic Soul only vibrates to the Highest Most Positive Energy there is; UNION WITH THE INFINITE BEING OF PURE LOVE AND PURE ENERGY! There is nothing Higher than knowing who we are in that fuller context. Joy is the result.
Negative thoughts, feelings and actions are primarily the ego and the disappointment of the ego's idea of things and, it can be, other people's negative reaction to us or attachments to us that we are holding onto to fix, transform, attempting to heal from or to support them in releasing them so they will want to heal and move on.
Think of it as darkness that we want to or hope to share our Light so someone else can find their way. A noble action, perhaps, but in their resistance, how do they make us feel? Does this inspire us to grow and expand or does this attempt only trap us, trick us and deceive us further? How can we then set our selves free and transform ourselves instead? We can do it by consciously turning the negativity into positive thoughts, feelings and action our Selves. We also do it through discernment. When we know we are not anger, stress, selfishness, impatience, etc., we can let these elements go and instead embrace the Higher aspects that we have learned, been shown or had revealed to us we actually are! This is another way to practice Self Love as God's LOVE. Often truly LOVING someone, ourselves included, means letting go of aspects of them or ourselves that are simply not true for us anymore!
Energetically holding onto the past, past relationships, old identifications and old stuck, stagnant emotions or thoughts only serves to hold us back and prevent further growth or expansion.
Putting a Loving space between yourself and the past is one way to also improve relationships. See or imagine a beautiful flowing energetic river of Light between you and the past and or past relationships with another person. Feel it there, fulfilling both of you with renewed Light, Love and a greater Truth. Give it space to flow freely and feel yourself releasing from any and all old stuck bondage that might be in the way. As it clears the space between you, notice how much better you feel and how more LOVING you feel towards yourself and them. Allow them to stand and live in that clean space that is now theirs while you do the same. Imagine pure white rain cleansing them and yourself also in this process. Feel how it LOVINGLY sets you and the other person free, free to be yourselves, free to move about as you both need to and free to feel like your best selves. Feel how much more positive you feel about yourself and the past or the other person or people, perhaps even a group of people. In this created, generated freedom, we can LOVE them and our Selves completely, without the burden of expectations, obligations or attachments to old, worn out roles and rules.
This is an active transformation and it allows people and situations to move on to better and healthier choices for all. It aligns us more fully with our True Heart Soul Self, which aligns us more fully with the Great Cosmic Soul, which aligns us with Pure LOVE, COMPASSION and UNDERSTANDING!
Negative thoughts, feelings and actions hold us back and positive thoughts, feelings and actions lead us forward. If Love, Light and Truth are our best path forward, we need to release our negativity and embrace a most positive perspective to align with our Greatest, Greatest Good, leading us to invite in our TRUE WELL BEING, promoting LOVE, COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING. The very same INFINITE PURE LOVE AND PURE ENERGY found in the Cosmic LOVE and Universal LOVE of which there is no real separation between that FORCE OF LOVE itself and our own system. Embrace a most positive perspective of yourself and others, through gratitude and forgiveness and watch your life transform. LOVE, COMPASSION and UNDERSTANDING IS THE WAY . . . go ahead and invite it in, in JOY!
