Negative thoughts take away all the good and happiness that we experience in our daily life. The negative things that the intellect shows is actually of no use to us.

Highlighted below are few of the ways to combat the negativity that may arise in you:

1.Drive out the Negative Intellect

It is the job of our intellect to show the good and bad in every decision or a situation that comes forth before us. However when you see negativity trying to overpower the positivity, tell the intellect to shut up and leave. The intellect is similar to a GPS system. Its role is to keep supplying us directions to take us on the path that it thinks to be right. But ultimately it is our decision to do what we want, for we are the driver, seated in the driver’s seat. If we think the intellect is showing us the negative path, it is up to us to overrule the intellect and take onto the positive path.

2.Writing three Positives vis-à-vis each Negative

When negative thoughts seem to bombard our mind, do not get engrossed in them, for if we do, in no time it can make us very weak and fragile. Instead the first thing you should do is take a piece of paper and pen and list down each negative thought that is coming to your mind, on the paper. This will make you feel better and quite relaxed too.

Thereafter, against each negative thought, think about at least 3 corresponding positives that exist. For instance, if it is a negative thought of some person, write down 3 positives of that person. Or if the thought is say, with respect to some situation, try noting down the positives that happened in the same situation. Doing so, your brain will be able to get a bigger and a factual picture of the person or the situation or maybe even your own self for which you are feeling negative right now.

Moreover, later when the same negative thoughts again come to your mind, referencing the positive thoughts written by you earlier will very speedily and effortlessly nullify the negatives this time. There is one more advantage of listing the positives. It is a good reminder of what you ought to be grateful for. An attitude of gratitude for the positives that you see will go a long way in clearing your mind completely of the negatives.

3.Asking for the Strength to be More Positive

There may be times when we feel greatly dejected as we begin to see negatives of people or things that we once enjoyed being with. However, remember that this is a temporary phase. Obstacles are bound to come in life and quite often, they come to get the worst of us out of our system, making us pure and powerful. Whenever you feel hopeless and bogged down with negativity, the easiest and most powerful thing to do in such a situation is you ask for strength to be more positive.

Param Pujya Dadashri always said, ask for strength from the higher source of power, eg:- the Enlightened One. So next time before negativity overpowers you, do not forget to ask for strength. Ask for strength and come out as winner!
