Negative Images.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I get these ‘negative’ or violent images flashing in my mind every-so-often.  These occur when I’m stressed, i.e. late for something or one of the kids is crying and I can’t help them to stop.  I know that you need to remain detached from these images/emotions and just observe them.  However, I find them very disturbing.  I am not a violent person, yet why am I having these thoughts?  What, if anything, can I do to stop them?  I meditate as often as I can.   However, once I focus on stopping them, I then become obsessed with them… this seems to be interfering with my ability to be at ‘peace.’


It appears that these negative images are triggered by stressful situations. Don’t try to force the mind to try and stop them, because that attention will only strengthen the identification with them and result in the obsession you noticed. If you don’t have a natural sense of detachment to bring to bear upon these situations, then use your natural strengths to short circuit your fascination to these violent images.  For example, if you have a good sense of humor, then find something funny or absurd about the images that help you disengage from them.  If you have strong analytical skills, look at how you are investing your well being in something patently untrue and which makes you feel miserable. If you have a well-developed sense of compassion, then pay attention to the pain and suffering these thoughts would cause if they manifested—how much pain they cause you. Recognize these thoughts as an involuntary playback of old traumas that are arising only for the purpose of being healed by the consciousness of your higher Self. They do not need to be struggled with, acted upon or psychoanalyzed for deeper meaning.
