A Happy Medium Is a Good Thing!

The past few days have been really amazing. Without a doubt Â (mine, Â naturally), surrounding myself with positive people, positive mindsets, and positive actions is the key to manifesting what I want. For all the magick I have ever done, the power of doing it in a positive Â environment cannot be underestimated.
Some things seem to have appeared out of thin air this week, Â particularly when youâ€™ve searched the same 6 by 3 foot area a dozen times and in changing the mindset, the missing item is suddenly there. This is a Â fun one for the Â girls Â and Â me Â because Â itâ€™s Â happened Â several Â times within the week, whether itâ€™s missing crystals, keys, nomination forms, or computer cords.
But to emphasizeÂ how important surrounding Â myself with positive people can be, I had a momentary lapse of positivity last night and really had to shove all the doubts back into place. It actually took me a good six hours of active intent to keep from manifesting my fears and I was still up and down all night. Why? Because someone who knew I was trying Â to Â stay positive just could not refrain from giving me a dose of her version of reality. Not that this personâ€™s reality has anything to do with mine, but she was damned and determined to introduce a negative possibility I hadnâ€™t thought of.
I had to look at her motivation rather than just taking it at face value.
This is Â something Â I Â learned Â a Â long Â time Â ago Â from Robert Fritz, Â a writer/composer/organizational consult- ant who really understands creative tension and structure. You just keep asking â€œWhy?â€ and sooner or later, youâ€™ll get to the real answer.
In this case, Shannon started it while we caught up with each other on how our day had manifested. Shannon asked the same question Iâ€™d already asked myself when Iâ€™d been floored a little earlier: â€œWhy would anyone ever say that to you?â€
â€œWell,â€ I said, â€œshe believes that….â€ I explained a theory Iâ€™d heard more than once. Then I asked myself, â€œWhy [does she believe that]?â€ I didnâ€™t ask if she had any basis in logic for it or if sheâ€™d actually seen that in my life or knew of it actually happening with the people involved. I already knew those answers. Instead, I just kept asking, â€œWhy?â€
By the time I was doneâ€”about 5 or 6 â€œwhyâ€™sâ€â€”I had my answer, the Â real answer, to why sheâ€™d said what she did. And I didnâ€™t like it.
It took quite a while and some hard concentration Â to get my Zen Â feeling back. The conversation Â really pulled me toward the mire for a Â while and Iâ€™ve had to spend time clearing my mind and recapturing my peace. I donâ€™t like that. Iâ€™ve wasted time. Or at least I feel that way until I realize something new.
An interesting Â side effect of the positive Â mindset Â is that there are suddenly things that I just know, in a psychic way I donâ€™t usually have. It goes hand-in-hand with a certain level of contentment Â and intention. Without all the negativity Â around Â me, Â I Â can Â suddenly Â see Â things Â very clearly, even if I donâ€™t know how. And theyâ€™re real on the physical plane, not just a visualization. Itâ€™s a tremendous feeling of comfort and content, that things are moving as theyâ€™re supposed to and just utterly knowing that things are going to turn out a certain way.
Wow. Come to think of it, the best psychics and intuitives Iâ€™ve ever dealt with have been very positive-minded, overall happy people. Wow. And the most negative ones have either seen only the worst possible out there or not been able to see anything at all.
So is negativity a block of yet another type? A block against our natural gifts and intuition?
