    Whenever you feel a negative emotion, embrace its presence and enter it both fully and willingly. Anything you try to avoid or resist will only come back stronger, so it makes little sense to do otherwise. Instead of thinking about how bad the emotion is making you feel, and multiplying the amount of painful thoughts rapidly spreading through your mind like the black plague , redirect your dialogue with the experience by turning and asking the emotion what it has to teach you. Talk with it, not about it. Explore it, do not become it. Every emotion houses hidden secrets and deep truths, and is nothing more than the vehicle offering you the opportunity to unveil the doors of perception leading to those easily missed yet life changing messages they contain.

    This is true in regards to even the most painful of emotions -especially the most painful ones. When a negative feeling arises, use it. Keep it. Feel it. Become it. Inhale it. Feel it in your heart, lungs, and veins. Pay close attention as it turns your vessels to ice sickles, rest in the coldness without placing judgement towards it until it passes, and then release it with an exhale of desert breeze. Melt it and release it back into the duality of the universe where it belongs, keeping only the message and strength it gave you. If the pain still has more to teach you, trust it will come back to you. Do not hold on to it, nor resist it. Let it visit when it must and welcome its arrival, perceiving it as an opportunity for inner growth.

    When negative thoughts threaten to obliterate you to ground zero, engage with them. Talk to them, rather than about them which only feeds your pain body and multiplies your suffering.

    Hi, This is very true. Negative thoughts can affect us so much. The best thing to do is to think of happy thoughts always and maybe to try going along with people who are always positive or rather has an optimistic approach in life.

    Thanks, Herbie, for the Shelly White article. Positive thinking is one of the best techniques for TMS healing.

    Nothing really is as bad as we think it is. Think happy and we can be happy.

    This is a powerful post not to just think positive but not to become your pain, your pain or anxiety will teach you if you observe it non judgementaly.
    What about your life can this pain or anxiety be trying to say to you.
    Are you emotionally distressed over a lost relationship, something that never was, someone that hurt you. Are you still holding some type of mental pain that has manifested itself physically.

    I like this a lot. Sort of reminds me of the saying, ''What you resist- persists.'' Thanks. Gonna have a good cry now.
