How to Stop Being a Negativity Magnet

Happiness is a matter of consistency.

This is your story: You like the idea of being a positive person. You read books on spirituality, attend motivational seminars, and listen to inspiring podcasts that all urge you to see things in a positive light. Yet, however much you try to create happiness you keep attracting one negative circumstance after the other. It’s as if the Universe has conspired to prevent you from living up to your highest potential, and keep you rooted in misery.

I have good news, and bad news for you.

The good news is that the Universe hasn’t conspired against you. On the other hand, it’s constantly trying to point you towards your happy ending. In fact, happiness was never meant to be just the end of your story, but your everyday reality. Happiness is your natural state of being.

Now the bad news…

The bad news is that returning to your natural, happy state of being is not an easy process.

You’ve Been Negative for Too Long

Whereas you were born an innocent, loving, blissful little baby, you eventually grew up, and dissipated from your true nature. Instead, you’ve learnt negative beliefs about yourself and about life, beliefs that you’ve affirmed, experienced, and witnessed for many years.

Beliefs are like muscles. The more you practice them the stronger they become. The stronger they become the more evidence of their “validity” you attract in your life, keeping you in a negativity loop. In other words, your negative beliefs have gained such a strong momentum of attraction that prevents your newly-acquired, not-yet-practiced positive beliefs to play out in a solid way.

Have you ever been on a roller coaster? As soon as it makes the first loop it becomes impossible to stop it. However scared you may be feeling during the ride, it’s gained so much momentum that’ll keep it looping no matter what.

Your negative momentum of attraction works in a similar way. Your negative beliefs have gained such strong momentum through the years, that they keep you on a loop of negative experiences.

Happiness Requires Consistency

The only way you can slow down your negative momentum of attraction is by starting to build a new one. And the key to doing so is consistency.

According to Abraham-Hicks, a belief is just a thought you think consistently. In this respect, reclaiming your naturally-positive self will require taking consistent positive action. Reading books, listening to podcasts, and attending seminars are wonderful steps towards the right direction, but knowledge without application is worthless.

Do You Want a Change?

My challenge for you is to pick a single positive practice that you can do daily for 30 days. Whether this is meditating, praying, practicing yoga, doing positive affirmations, or taking a walk out in nature, pick something that inspires a feeling of happiness, and commit to it.

I guarantee, that by day 30 you’d have started a new positive momentum of attraction that’ll stop making you feel like the unluckiest person in the world, and show you how your life’s really supposed to be.

    Weird, I’ve started to get back into Abe after a long hiatus. And I’ve also learned that rather than making large amount of effort in de-coding my negative beliefs I’m just gonna start new ones because it’s easier and less painful. I’ll acknowledge my pain and respect it but I will, as you point out gain momentum in the right direction, because i deserve to and desire it so much. Consistency is where I ‘fail’, I can only improve! I will eft on my consistency! And love myself into new beliefs. Because that’s how I’m feeling at the moment. This moment will become, half an hour, a day, a week, a month, year and forever. Namaste.

    • Priti, I’m glad that you’ve had an Aha! moment with this article, because I wrote it with you in mind. I found that consistency comes easier with time and practice. As I told you before, happiness is a muscle. The more you practice it the stronger it gets. 🙂
