5 Steps for Eliminating Negative Emotions

5 Steps for Eliminating Negative Emotions

After two decades of working with TV celebrities, movie stars, sports stars and the general public, the most profound discovery Iíve made is that people need a technique that will quickly eliminate any negative emotionsÖ because if they canít rid themselves of fear, doubt, anxiety or depression they have little or no chance to live an amazing life.

This technique is lightning fast so do it now.

Step 1
Think of anything that is bothering you, worrying you, or making you feel sad or fearful. Pick the worst thing you are going through now.

Step 2
As you keep thinking about it, let yourself detect where you feel it in your body. Some people have felt it in their chest, arms, stomach, throat, between their breasts (females), or at the top of their stomach (men store it here a lot). Become aware of where it enters your body.

Step 3
Notice which direction this feeling is moving. It has to move Ė feelings move all the time. For example, I want you to think about being nervous. When a person is nervous, they normally say ďI have butterflies in my tummyĒ.

Step 4
By now you should be thinking of it, feeling it and know the direction in which it is moving. Now I want you to look at what it is you are seeing in your mindís eye. Is it a still picture or a movie? Go to†(a) if itís a picture and go to†(b) if itís a movie.

(a) If it’s a picture, place a black border around the edge and move it away from you in your mind’s eye, shrinking it down to the size of a postcard. Then move it away from you again until it’s the size of a postage stamp. Then when it is as small as you can make it, take a deep breath and blow it away until you can’t see it anymore….Finish Steps 4 and 5 on!

We had a snow storm so I decided to drive down some rural roads and take a lot of photos. Winter is far too early even if it is scenic looking. Maybe I can find a way to bribe Mother Nature into skipping Winter and sending palm trees instead.

How about having the computer have hard drive failure and then doing comments via cell phone and hardly being able to see what I'm doing. One takes a computer for granted until it dies on you. I am glad that l backed up my 200,000 photos on an external hard drive.

As Wendy J. pointed out, before trying to rid ourselves of negativity take a look at it and ask what there is to learn. There is usually a reason and if we get stuck in one thought pattern it may be hard to see but if we look from a different angle - there is always more than one way - then it may be we can move forward a little wiser than before. Barbara V. and Manda K. have good advice as well, green stars to them :)

Hmmm... not sure about this. But hey, if it works for some people then that's great!

This kind of thing never works for me. I don't know if it's because I'm not creative enough or what.
