We all have those negative thoughts that creep in. Even though you might have meditated today, slept well, even exercised, negativity awaits in the corner like a good old loyal friend that is always there for us (like it or not). So if we would look for a moment at negativity as a friend (just for a moment) then maybe, just maybe, there is a reason why this friend is always (or almost always) there for us.
In my work and personal evolution I have bumped into many moments that I have perceived as negative. We are meaning-making machines, and, since we are, why not choose a meaning that is more positive and empowering?
As I was going through my NLP training in 2007, I learned a profound way to shift one's thinking. I am not talking here about "positive thinking" but about "neurological repatterning". Meaning that the simple technique I am going to share with you (and you'll be flabbergasted by how simple it is), actually shifts the neurology in our brain because of its intimate connection to our thought processes, to our feelings, to our motions and movements, even to the very words we choose to use.
I want to show you how to do this but first I'd like to share with you a little story.
There was a time that I felt ready for my husband to propose to me. I spent time in resentment and frustration because he didn't, and the way the thought appeared in my mind was:
“It is taking him too long”
So I used this conversion technique that I am about to show you, and started to come up with ideas of how I could give it a different meaning, and here is what came up:
"He wants to stay with me for the rest of his life
so he is preparing himself for that”.
“He loves me so much and he is preparing
a very special proposal for me”.
About 3 weeks after I did this conversion technique,
I got a proposal from my wonderful guy.
It was on a hot air balloon in Snowmass, Colorado.
(The 3 pictures above were taken on July 4th 2007. The view was asstoning, the ride was magical. It was the two of us and the pilot, John. The other hot air balloon was another group that was flying close to us)
Later on my husband shared with me that he made the decision to propose to me in February, but because he wanted it to be so special he preferred to wait and propose in July when we would have our vacation in Snowmass-Colorado.
I was amazed not only with how much this conversion technique allowed me to be at peace in the present moment, but also to manifest such a reality that, in a way, was even better than my dreams.Two dreams came true in one day. The flight in a hot air balloon and the marriage proposal.
The Engagement Ring.
The ring was designed especially for me 🙂 with the infinity sign

OK, so here is the conversion technique:
The way to do this conversion technique is to use it as a replacement, meaning every time that your mind goes to the negative, you ask yourself:
"What’s another way of looking at this?”
(That is more positive)
When we have more options, we know where to go. Our mind knows where to go. When we don’t have options we don’t know what to do, so we go to the default, and if the default is negativity, then we visit it too often.
If you are not sure how to convert your negative thoughts, then let this blog be your platform in learning how to find another way to look at the same thing but not through glasses of negativity.
Feel free to post here a sentence that describes the negative "thing" (just one sentence, not a story. Take a look again at the example I gave above), and I will offer you a few options that will shift your mind to think a different way.
Good luck and enjoy the shift.
