Let's talk about negative thoughts. In this quick self-help segment, I am going to cover negative thoughts, what they are, set your expectations for how they work, and give you some techniques that you can use to cope with them, deal with them, and eliminate them. Automatic Negative Thoughts So, starting with negative thoughts or, as many of us call them, "automatic thoughts" -- because that's what they are -- what we don't realize is how many of these thoughts we're actually having and how unconsciously, spontaneously, and automatically we're having them throughout our days. Whether it's a negative thought about your girlfriend or boyfriend, a negative thought about what somebody did to you while you were driving to work, or a negative thought about having to go to the gym, or a negative thought about what's going to be happening to you next month when you can't pay the bills, your mind is really good at taking your greatest fears and projecting them and catastrophizing them. It just creates the worst possible case scenarios and then puts them right before your eyes and flashes them right before you. So, no matter what your greatest fears are in life, the chances are that you're having a lot of negative thoughts around that fear. Your Greatest Fear I do tend to find that it's one or two main fears. This is probably something like an issue that crept up and kind of stuck with you from childhood or early adulthood. These things tend to be centered around, for example, the fear of failure. Maybe you have a fear of winding up poor and homeless. Maybe you have a fear of not winding up in a good relationship and being lonely and dying miserable and unloved. Maybe you have a fear of really getting rejected by somebody if you put yourself out there, whether it's in a relationship or a business context. Maybe you have a fear of failure in going and trying some sort of goal and then not succeeding at it and having everybody point fingers at you and say, "Well, we told you so. We told you that you couldn't do that." So, you have a fear of failure of that kind of embarrassment or humiliation. There are many different types of core or fundamental fears, but whatever yours is, it's going to be like a filter that you look and filter your whole day through. This will tend to happen again and again and again. So, one first step to starting to eliminate negative thoughts is to become very conscious. Become very aware of when you are having negative thoughts and what is the topic that it's revolving around. I guarantee to you that you'll be shocked if you have not done this exercise. Increase Your Awareness Spend the next three days just being very aware of what it is that you're thinking. What you might want to do, practically, is just randomly stop for five minutes three times a day and ask yourself, "What am I feeling right now and what am I thinking?" What you'll notice is that if you're feeling negatively or if you're feeling anxious or stressed or worried or overwhelmed, there's an associated thought with that and that thought is going to be some sort of negative automatic thought that you might not have even realized that you were having. It might be something like, "Well, I'm feeling overwhelmed right now and the reason I'm feeling that way is because I'm thinking that I have a hundred things that I need to do before the end of the week and if I don't do that, then something bad will happen." That's usually where your subconscious mind will fill in that blank with your worst imaginable fear. You might think, "Well, if I don't get all this stuff done this week, then I might get fired and I might not be able to pay my mortgage and then the bank will repossess my house and then I'll wind up on the street and I'll never be able to recover from that and I'll be homeless and poor for the rest of my life." So, maybe that's what your brain is projecting into your mind. Or maybe it's something like, "Well, if I don't get all of this stuff done, then my spouse or my boyfriend or my girlfriend will think less of me and they won't love me anymore. Maybe they'll leave me and I'll not ever be able to replace them and get into a good relationship. So, I'll wind up alone and miserable and nobody will ever want me because I'm unlovable and not successful in their eyes." So, maybe it's something like that.

Bofih Vibed: ★☞I can tell you that it allowed me to exactly that. I was wondering if it wasn't too much trouble if you could create a similar one for releasing limiting beliefs and ideas about manifesting love [ Check Details here >>==>>https://t.co/r2gr8AJvfb ]. As I have recently downloaded your Love mantra meditation I think both combined could quite powerfully amplify the _*★☞manifestation and allowing of unconditional love in ones life.

Fromcents toretirement: I missed the part "& How To Eliminate It Forever"

Jenna Upchurch: i have a bad habit of reliving/re-examining the worst moments of my life, over-analyzing the details of what happened and getting worked up about it again although i've tried to forgive and forget. i seriously have to stop my thoughts by saying "NOPE." and redirect them to things i'm grateful for. it's happening less and less frequently but still occurs when i least expect it.

Subrata Hui: GREAT TECHNIQUES LEO SIR.

Brian Tobias: I keep having negative thoughts about my girlfriend. I have a fear that she will leave me or that she will cheat on me. In this day and age it's almost like relationships are look at as a waste of time because the divorce rate is at 50% and cheating is such a common thing now-a-days. I let all of this outside negative energy come in and i'm letting it ruin something great. It sucks.

Kit the Manakete: OK, so with my problem... how it all started was really my fault in the first place, I'll admit that. My problem is that I'm being blackmailed and I so scared that my boyfriend will find out about the experiment I did to get myself into that situation... Then leave me because of what I did. Thankfully I've cleaned up my act and made a complete 180 from that lifestyle but it still haunts me to this day. They're threatening to send it to my school but luckly they don't know I go to a different school now, but this person is a white hat (a hacker) and I'm so scared that they'll find out in time... The thought of my boyfriend leaving me because of my past actions makes my old school knowing it seem not so bad... I was legit bawling my eyes out just typing about this, not to mention the suicidal thoughts I had earlier today. The thing is... I don't know what to do.

Jesus Stjohn: /-\

Tate Mash: I get negative thoughts with the male gender I feel that every male is out to ruin my life and make me suffer and abuse me I've had no abusive background but I dunno why I keep having negative thoughts about my male friendships like that there out to get me could you please tell me what this is and how I can stop my brain from making things up and me believing it

bogdan raicevic: it has become so scary----

bogdan raicevic: so there is no beauty about negative thoughts? you reptilian fucker, fucking magician... lunatic. quiet the mind he says, you cannot control life

William Schafer: ★☞These are probably the easiest and most effective meditations I've used [ Check Details here ===https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/Manifestation-Miracle-6LsL7as54ewFRXHuZHNIO ]. Nothing else has helped keep me focused on a goal..right to the end
