Deepak Quotes

We can either allow our past to keep interfering with our optimal expression of love and happiness, or we can move beyond our past with renewed passion for life.

Positive Energy

Category:  Ask Deepak


I hope that you can answer my questions or provide guidance because I am in despair for an answer. I often hear people have energy that draws people to you or away from you. So no one says what to do if your energy is negative or if it pushes people away. How do you change it? How do you bring positive energy to you? All my life people have been repelled from me and I don’t know why. This has caused me to be depressed or feel that I don’t fit into the grand scheme of life.


Your core Being is an unlimited source of positive energy, love and joy. You don’t have to do anything to draw it to you, you only need to get beyond your mental and emotional limitations to experience it, and let is radiate from you like a light bulb when it is turned on. You experience you true self through meditation where your mind is allowed to go beyond its usual thoughts and feelings and then experiences its own true nature and becomes infused with the qualities of peace, happiness and clarity. After meditation, during the day, that inner presence is radiated as friendliness, kindness and pleasantness, and those qualities will naturally draw people closer to you.

  • Sociology teaches "that nothing is what it seems to be." Compassion for self shows that you have a good heart, and as DC said yesterday, "a pure diamond's reflection is fragmented and not perfect. Do not be too hard on yourself... have the courage to not care what others think of you... and everyone may feel this at times. Average people are full of negative judgement, focus on working on yourself and your goals in life. Amen (so be it)

  • I really need your help, it hasn’t been easy to walk away from negative thoughts. This week I lived two difficult situations in my work, I have been trying to walk away from those situations, changing my thoughts to a more pleasant situation, but it has been unsuccessful, every time my mind comes back to them again and again. I think, I am losing my precious time with that, but my mind is not helping me at all. Sometimes, I think my mind is my worst enemy.

  • Simple method for positive energies can be found on internet if you search at the right place. So now it is possible to reach the Ka energies from the egyptian person named Khufu who is teaching the exceptional possibilities...

  • I have practiced for probably 60 years. In the midst of my most tortuous years, I could find god. In the meadow with the cows, I meditated at 4 or 5 years; I was at peace. At 20 yo, I hated god who had betrayed me. But, my heart was good; all of the pain had endured became energy from which I was able to be exceptional in teaching and caring for disadvantaged youth. I had skills no one had. In the sixties, a college class challenged us with the topic: Mind vs Body. Very exciting for me. Then, Marianne Williamson wrote A Return to Love. My life has been an accumulation of reading and listening to everything and everyone who might bring me closer to spirit. I get it now. It`s so simple. Just release. Give up power to god. Trust you will be ok. In your mind, give up everything. I don`t know anything. I can regurgitate many things I`ve read, but, I KNOW nothing. When I`m distressed, I get on my knees and simply ask for help. It always comes. What does that mean? Only that I am free from anguish again. And can be. I have pondered the whole concept of making a plan and letting it come to fruition, on a personal level. (I wrote grants and made many plans for my students and they came to fruition. One girl said, in retrospect, she thought she had gone to a private school. Her experiences had been so rich.) Finally, maybe due to the meditation I`ve been doing, and on twitter last week, someone said, "Make a plan so it can begin to happen." So, I did. Because so many people have used this process to put cars in their driveway, expensive things in their lives, I have reticent to become involved. But, I have retired, but still make a decent living. I had begun the process of moving down to save money because I help my dtr and like to give to charities. One day I decided I wanted to go on my holistic cruise again next year. And I wanted to maintain some of the things I enjoyed in my life. So, I made a plan. Interestingly, I received a check from social security saying they made a mistake in 2011 and then in doing my taxes, received a state refund (a big surprise). I`m just going with the flow. Trusting that I will be ok regardless of what happens. Sending love and compassion to all. // 2013-03-30 01:37:26 // //

  • That is exactly what is said in our Creator's words. He is the light, he gave us the choice to chose the light, the light is inviting the Holy Spirit, Jesus, to be center of our inner being. Too live as He lived. To walk in light and let His light shine through us. That can only be done by loving yourself first & that comes with the Devine knowledge of grace. Grace is given by the shedding of blood. The blood covering forgives everything ever done in the past and we become new creatures. Humbled by the fact we our loved and forgiven of all things.

  • As well as meditation can I also add something very helpful and practical. One could try also the writing practice of Vimala Rodgers. An amazing women who utilises the a simple handwriting practice daily to bring positive chances to you. This uses nueroplasticity to subtly alter how you feel about yourself and others relate to you. Try it and see ! I can highly recommend it. Once you get her book all you need is a pen, paper and persistence ! Simon C

  • Others will love you and accept you when you accept yourself. You need to let go of other peoples opinions of you and only focus on YOUR opinion of YOU. But your opinion of you has to be focused on how magnificent you are, how beautiful you are, how important you are, HOW MUCH YOU MATTER. BECAUSE YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU DO MATTER! If you can do THAT WITHOUT anyone agreeing with you, then others will agree with you, but it wont matter because you will be filled with so much self love, you wont care who loves you or not! You can not attract more in life than who YOU think YOU are. EVERYTHING starts with YOU. Everything up until this point has been an indication of your own inner “repellent”. LOVE YOU and the world is your oyster, but if you don’t love you, then there is not enough outside love to ever make up for that... <3

  • I also found that meditation helps you trust others better when you meet them, it helps you not to see others with judgement, smile more often. Deepak is absolutely correct, trust me meditation works, also learn about how to clear your aura with meditation, affirmations, and perhaps even some meditation with stones, it works.

    Shirley Patricia Rojas // 2013-03-25 15:33:05 // //
  • The monkey mind is very busy but can be tamed. When a thought arises; breathe, be kind to yourself & say 'thinking' then let the thought float away like a balloon. :)

    Patricia Keene // 2013-03-25 09:39:38 // //
  • As a shining light of postivity I found myself one time being repelled by a negative person I just met. I was sitting at the center of a couch and she was to my right. I didnt even realize what kind of person she was until I was practically in the lap of a friend to my left. And that person actually asked me if I was ok? When I learned about the young women I realized she was a very negative energy full of stress, jealousy, resentment and more. Over the few months that I got to know her, she refused to change and be positive. She made the air around her toxic with her negativity. It seems she may never have learned to rid herself of it.

    Heidi Hanna // 2013-03-25 09:35:45 // //
  • I like say "marinate" in that negative, a smile goes a long way! and them move on with a good laugh, if that doesn't work. walk away

  • I recognize negative energy immediatley. It often comes with people who are only intereted in toying with your emotions. I don't waste my time anymore with these people. Then , you see that is how those type treat everyone. Learning to tune that out or filter it out. aggressive annoying people are as miserable as they make others.eventually, they become overwhelmed and seek out change.

  • This is what my young daughter has, a magnetism that draws all good to her. There is no contamination that we build up as we age

    Michael Kukura // 2013-03-25 07:44:50 // //
  • Everyone is a predisposed magnetic being, we have so many qualities in us to explore that it may take a lifetime and we don't get to do it. Education shd enable those qualities to flourish and expand, however it is a reserved realm. Lucky are those who connect to magnetic people who KNOW and help.

    Pratima V Bungsee // 2013-03-25 07:37:16 // //
  • May I make a suggestion as well? Whether or not you believe that Jesus is the Son of God and our Savior, (I do) no one can deny the love that He showed to others. So I have been praying that God will allow me to see others through Jesus' eyes and not my own, (since my own are tainted with life in the school of hard knocks.) And an amazing thing happened: the more I pray for this, the more I am changed! You truly do see people in a different light. You begin to see people with your heart and not your eyes. This is not to say that suddenly all people will become kind and compassionate and empathetic; they won't. But YOU will, and by changing the way that you see others, it cannot help but also change the way that others see you. <3

  • It takes conscious work in my experience, starting by seeing the positive around you, meditating yes, open up your heart let light and love fill it.

    Kristine Skancke // 2013-03-25 06:02:00 // //
  • That is a wonderful answer, however what about when you have blocks such as trauma, negative feelings in your subconscious mind which we cannot get to at a conscious level. When you have these blocks this stops you from moving forward and letting your light shine. A way you can remove the layers and blocks from your subconscious is Theta Healing. Once these layers come off, your physical self begins a process of elimination of negative emotions, like a detox, and then after a whiile you begin to feel the breakthrough. xoxoxo

  • Our form (bodies) move in the mellow river (wisdom). Large number of 'pitchers' would look on the surface of water but not the water beneath them. Same is the case with our bodies; we feel them but not souls/spirits. The movement of the pitchers are due to water, so is the case with our bodies; their movement is due to souls. Untill a pitcher is not fill with water, it will float on the surface of water. When it gets filled with water, it sinks into it. So untill our body is not filled with the light of wisdom, it will continue to be commanded by the bodily appetites and spiritual qualities and mysteries will not manifest but will remain latent. The main source to know the Reality is knowledge and seeking. It is not proper to form a view of events, which a man confronts, without knowledge of dictrines and theories. No doubt, there are diverse theories but man has always remained eager to choose one that would be nearest to the truth. Man improves with age. Man ia a creature not a machine. He thinks and feels. His all actions, reasonable or otherwise, are prompted by his emotions and ideas.

  • Just think positive. ..

    William Coon // 2013-03-25 04:56:19 // //
  • The people who often walk away from us do so because they are scared of truth. And spend their entire lives in denial. A true friend is an honest friend, even if you don't wish to hear it. But unfortunately people are scared of opening up to the true self. And being in the presence of somebody who is enlightened or awake is too much for them to bare. Because that would mean that everything in their lives up to this point as been a shame. And people will do everything possible to protect that world of illusion.

  • This just partly true. Its not meant to advise people what they can realize or achieve through meditation. In a matter of fact real life goes daily without meditation and here it is important to act positive and do positive and keep positive.

  • People are gonna judge and put you down and tell you what you should be doing and how.the one thing I always taught my girls. Is that it doesn't matter if someone doesn't like you. Not everyone is going to. I use to let people make me feel less then a person Luke I could not do anything right. Then I realized. I was letting there negitivit get to me . It seemed no matter how I thought I was being positive those begitive people would bring you down . I justi stopped listening . I get up each morning and I say I am gonna have a good day. I surround my self with people who are positives and I don't let those others get to me they can say anything it your choice to believe or key go.

  • Call this "Snarky enlightenment" if you will... Clearly DC doesn't need and by most accounts probably wouldn't want anyone smackin the stupid out of any of his followers, being that it's their own journey n all, but hey, if you didn't "LIKED" the page, then this wouldn't be your journey, would it? ;) Having said that, this one's for you Boyce Rensberger. As a Mental Health Information Professional, you'll get the term "PROJECTION". When someone fakes their entire adult working life, they might see "Charlatan's" at every corner. So glad to hear "But I'm not faking it now as I lead the president's re-election campaign in western Maryland. Couldn't be more serious", So I'm sure you'll understand how people may not be able to take your opinion of others as not being real or perhaps just in your own head and absolutely ridiculous... And this one's for Danney Edward Ball or Danny Edward Ball or whatever your name is this week. Clearly "PROJECTION" is beyond your scope of understanding, so I'll just say this... By challenging people who believe, teach and reach out to others from their positive "core being" and posturing for them to "prove it". Screams of a man who's giant hole of need is trumped only by his incredibly limited intellect and inability to grasp how irritatingly negative his own energy is. IDK, I'm thinking you probably shouldn't be waiting by the phone for Oprah's people to call, my guess is paying for airtime to showcase your ignorance isn't what her "positive core being" is telling her to do. Although, I can't imagine why, your "Rake story" was so riveting and inspiring...

  • I needed this reminder. I have been going through some rough times, as my husband is entering the last stages of an inherited condition called essential tremors after 16 yrs of gradual decent in health that I have continually been beside him taking care of him. I have recently felt like my heart was hardening. Tears very seldom ever come over anything. I sometimes feel llike a robot waiting to have my buttons pushed. i have not greeted the Sun much lately or even sent up prayers. This has shook me hard to take a look at my own self. I have much correcting to put in place.

  • Sociology teaches "that nothing is what it seems to be." Compassion for self shows that you have a good heart, and as DC said yesterday, "a pure diamond's reflection is fragmented and not perfect. Do not be too hard on yourself... have the courage to not care what others think of you... and everyone may feel this at times. Average people are full of negative judgement, focus on working on yourself and your goals in life. Amen (so be it)

  • If anyone that may b able to a kind and loving person. But recently I was alarmed that I attracted a mean and cold person..full of ego..why that happened to me ? A v good it was hard to let go...but finally had to...painful..

    Jyoti Gambhir // 2013-03-25 00:34:10 // //
  • I feel this is so true. It's easy to push people away energetically through negativity or fear. Speaking from my own experience. It can be changed. There was a book "Love is letting go of Fear".

  • I would like to add that as you pray and meditate your perception changes and you may see others and their motivations differently. You will change, but it will seem as though everyone around you has changed. Namaste

  • in my experience, the 'mental and emotional limitations' is the grieving for the ways and experiences that caused us to lose contact with our essential divine nature. Along with meditation and mindfulness, a book has helped me a great deal to understand this: 'The Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram: 9 Faces of the Soul' by Sandra Maitri. I love this series of questions and answers, and the 21 Day Meditation Challenge. Let's all continue to inspire the Divine. Pass it on, in love, in life. Thank you Deepak. Thank you Divine.

  • You have to give something of value to others in one form or another so when your energy is negative it will be looked at as something of a concern rather than a turn off. Your blessing will be your hand of generousity through good deeds, motivation, interest, and charity.

  • Meditation and the frequent use of affirmation! Two that I use often are "I am a radiating center of Divine Light and Love!" and "I am a radiant reflection of Divine Perfection!" Both work really well to remind us what we really are. Before you know it, you will be a radiant being, attracting positive people into your life. Namaste.

  • Im doing the 21 day meditation online and it is helping me achieve the peace i need even though around me there are negative forces reeling bad thoughts and words towards me. I learned that not to pay attention to those negative people cause it isn't who i am, but rather a reflection of who they are and it is sad to say i dont want to be anywhere close to those kind of people. be it a family friend or a close relative. I see who they are and pushes me to not be like them cause they aren't a positive influence.

  • Danney, as per Deepak, I agree that the answers lie within quiet meditation....time that you can set aside to be with your core and true self. It's always there for you. You simply have to lay down any doubts and simply be present and ready for the amazing gifts and answers that come from the light; within and all around you.... Once you tap in, you will never feel alone in your life again.
