What is a Negative Consciousness? A Negative Consciousness is a mindset where a person continually feels negative emotions like fear, greed, anger, hatred, revenge, and superstition. When the mind is constantly feeling these negative emotions nothing good comes into creation. This negative energy brings you more of what you don’t want into your life. A negative mindset makes you feel like you will never achieve any of your goals and you are doubtful that you will be successful. The negative mind has no empty space for any positive emotions.

This mindset campaigns you to give up on your ambitions and dreams before you really get started on accomplishing them or even dillydally to the point that you never follow up on your goals. Most of the times you might not even know you are being negative once you are as a matter of fact negative. The negative awareness is easy to make since no “work is required to accomplish this mindset, it is almost human nature. Here is one sign that a negative mentality could be holding you back. Do you ever decide to take action on a goal then at once begin to think about all the ways you could not possibly come through? That is the easiest way to know you have a negative mentality. What is a Positive Consciousness? A Positive Consciousness is a mentality (mindset) where a person continually feels positive emotions like hope, love, faith, romance, ebullience, and hope. The positive mindset is thankful for all the people that have and will have, and they are faithful to the actions that will effect change and successfulness. The person who has a positive mindset doesn't have room in their beliefs for negative emotions. Somebody with a positive mindset all the time finds the good in every situation and acknowledges that goals aren't met overnight and are willing to trust the Universe and continue to move forward feeling fully supported in accomplishing their goals, positively. If you are actively controlling your thoughts in order to have your mind filled with positive emotions then you have a positive awareness. When you stay positive your aperture is open to see all that is available. So how do you change your mindset? First you become aware both negative and positive emotions. They exist and resisting one over the other will only create the resistance to be stronger and the negative to continually return. When the negative

mindset is prevailing, slow down and notice. Allow yourself time to be with it and challenge the thoughts that are arising. Allow yourself to see the positive and the underlying message. It takes time to shift and the courage to be with the negative. You may be thinking to yourself "how can I concentrate on the positive when negativity is all around me?" You can learn how to change your mindset and begin living the life you want just by using:

  • Affirmations

  • Your imagination

  • Meditation

  • Vision boards

Here is each tool set out for you in detail:

  • Affirmation – Positive self-talk is a way to embed positive ideas and thoughts on your subconscious mind. The key here is to believe the affirmation you choose. If when you speak it you’re filled and you’re filled with doubt then it’s not your affirmation. If you don’t believe it, the affirmation will not land in your subconscious to shift your mindset.

  • Meditation – Take a few moments at the end of every day to sit and relax your mind in a quiet place that you like.

  • Imagination ‒ Imagine you are living a life exactly as you want. Believe that you are gonna have it soon.

  • Vision Board – A poster board with pictures of what your life looks like when your goals are met, and after you made it put in a place that you can see it every day.
