that when I find myself in an open frame of mind - good things DO enter into my life....my problem is that I feel that I am sometimes in denial of all of the bad crap that happened to me in some way and feel that it is being discounted in some way when I turn my energies to a more positive frame of mind.

Lord knows that I DO NOT want to go back to that old naive way of thinking and it has really served me well to get in touch with my anger -only I know that if I keep hoing in on only the "negative" - for lack of a better term - not really negative - more like "empowering" sense - that I feel like I am blocking out the other good stuff which may be just knocking on my door.

How do I find the balance to validate myself - which only comes from finally feeling the anger - yet - open and trusting enought to let the good stuff in?

Any one know what I am talking about here??????

i know exactly what you are feeling like. I listened to a tape of the thoughts of a man named Abraham Hicks (he was channeling through someone else). Then I went out and bought "The Secret"

In one day. In just one day, I have seen so much different in everything that is going on around me and how I feel about myself.

I cannot believe it. I was so skeptical about this whole thing, but I went into it with an open mind. I was at a point where I knew that things could not get any worse than what they were.

It is absolutely amazing.

My advice is to keep focusing on the positive stuff. Write a letter for the future that starts: I am so happy that I finally dealt with my anger because I have allowed this good stuff to come in (and write the good stuff down).

I actually made a list like this and two of the things on the list have happened.

good luck.

I sort of know what you're talking about but have been know to misunderstand....

You have got to a place where you have been through self-help books,rethinking assessing life/identity,feeling the anger etc etc but now not sure how to move on or whether the positive thinking actually works in practice and what about those poor negative feelings etc that could always be relied upon that creep in?

Acceptance of those difficult times/people, forgiveness of yourself and others,and moving on being positive.Is basically how I see it..but may differ.Easy to say but not always easy to do.

The Power of Now-Eckhart Tolle is a great book....
While soprano2 said about The Secret(good handbag size book!)...not sure yet, only on pg10 re "thoughts are magnetic,& thoughts have a frequency".

I'm a firm believer in lists too, focusing on the positives.

All the best truthBtold

ps hope The Secret book works S2!

Well this is my take:

When I started my own emotional recovery, the negative stuff from the past came up on the surface, sort of like unclean laundry LOL. Each step of the way would unfold another step for a more healing and I would find myself liberated from that old negative stuff where I have been in bondage.

BTW: Being in denial is part of the healing process, since the ugly and negative stuff surface on the top and here when we don't like it and try to deny it. Many of us practice "Denial" unconsciously when we don't like the reality of something. Sometimes denial is good to some extent. That's why, I believe the healing process takes time one step at a time. Our brain cannot handle all the negative stuff of the past. It's just too much for it!

Does that make sense to you TBT? If not, please tell me so that I may elaborate.

This is a great post. I love what you both have written. I am trying to study the Secret, but I find myself letting negative thoughts into my mind all the time. I can't seem to stop them. Once one thought occurs others follow. I then try and think positive, but I find myself minutes later back to the negative. I guess this takes some people longer to get... I am trying. I just wish I could stop thinking so bad and focus on the good.

Yes, a great post it is, sorry I missed it!

TBT, I used to attend the Christian Science church services and felt great. I liked the time out, the relaxation, meditation AND the positive stuff. Then one day, I got very disapppointed about some of the old timers there. The whole thing lost appeal to me. Of course, I shouldnt have tied the "Truth" to the people. The point is, I got to where you seem to be at times. Knowing positive stuff helps, but being too suspicious to have the faith and belief in it. Naturally, simply repeating positive affirmations won´t do it. For most people, it won´t mend broken bones or lost hopes.

I like the idea of the list. Its a hard fact, one written record you can keep for future reference, when you may sway and not be objective.

However, the fact that you´re questioning the practice makes me think you´re balancing well between reality and wishful thinking.

Just think that there is no secret. I think each person finds the tools, more than one, that work for them. Maybe like a system of checks and balances.

BTW, I just got some material on "The Secret". Not sure I will change my negative mind which is in the high tide right now. Not that it changes that much, but it changed significantly recently. I basicaly feel a lot better from depression. And a combo of things got me better. Now I would have gone back to Christian Sciencenow that I dont expect the people to practice what they preach, he he!

Thank you all for your input.

I guess that it is not a simple "linear process" at all is it?

In fact, it's quite MESSY!!!!!

(I guess THIS is the thing that I have to keep reminding myself of.....)

Sininho, I like your mention of your negative mind being in "high tide" right now....maybe you hit unto something here which is actual, physical, ethereal and visceral - takes BOTH - the high tide and the low tide - afterall....that quite actually is what really does makes the world go round - the whole cosmo balance of it all.......

Finally, something that makes sense to my logical brain!!!!!

While reading another post before coming to this one - I jotted down something that just "came to me" which was "Let anger serve it's purpose" - then move on....then...let MORE anger serve it's purpose...then keep moving on etc....... (like the tides of the ocean.)

Again, thanks to all - you have really helped me out on this one!!!!!!!
