The benefits of a positive mind
Some people call it the law of attraction, others call it positive thinking or even a “sunny disposition”, but no matter what you call it, having a positive mind seems to help you have a positive life.
The science to back these theories up is exceptionally complex - words like “quantum physics” and “quarks” are enough to send anyone’s mind into a spin, but the proof is there. Very basically, science agrees that every cell in pretty much everything we can see and not see has a spark of energy which all vibrate differently - because we as humans have a brain, we can increase that vibration or decrease that vibration just by what we think. Other things can also impact those vibrations such as water intake and the food we eat, so it’s definitely beneficial to follow a balanced diet and drink plenty of water!
What that means emotionally is linked closely to my last article 'What we think we become'. By remaining positive we become a beacon for other positive people. Another saying we hear is “birds of a feather flock together”, and by attracting positive people we then surround ourselves with that positivity which sets a daisy chain of positivity.
It’s easy to see how that would be beneficial; having positive people around us makes the more difficult things in life more bearable. We automatically know that any difficult time in our lives won’t last. We may even have people in our positive circle that could help us manage that difficult time, because positive people often gravitate towards caring professions.
The important thing to remember when working on issues which crowd the mind with negativity is that change can be scary for that person; they may have been in that negative place so long it’s become part of their coping mechanism. It may take longer to build trust and gain rapport but the end result will be worth it.
Spending time using NLP and hypnosis for anxious or negative thinking can help rewire a person’s thinking; even phobias can be unpicked effortlessly. It’s important to stress that no therapist can do this for a client; a therapist gives the client the tools and support to make those changes themselves - it’s most definitely a two-way street! It’s very important to be in a place of open-minded willingness to make changes; if you are thinking of contacting a therapist then you are ready to start your healing journey.
