If we always create a negative emotional and mental reaction to everything in life, says Dr. Cherie Carter-Scott, we are a Negaholic. “Negaholism is a syndrome,” she writes, “in which people uncon-sciously limit their own innate abilities, convince themselves that they cannot have what they want, and sabotage their wishes, desires and dreams.” Guess I qualify as a “recovering negaholic.”
I have invested lots of time and energy into shifting from negative thinking to positive thinking. I’ve made a conscious choice to deflect negative attitudes and judgements. I strive to be more compassionate in my thinking. If I see a person doing something I judge as selfish or stupid, if I catch myself making that person wrong, I stop and tell myself the person is doing the best he or she knows to do.
Admittedly, this is tough for me when it comes to politics. I tend to slip into the split perceptions of “us versus them.” I want to make extremists on the far right and far left into the “bad guys” while those who think globally (like you and me, of course) are the “good guys.” In truth, my judgments only shut down my heart.
There is another dimension to consider, too. All mental activity creates electromagnetic fields, based in our brain’s electrochemistry. This energy can be measured by an electroencephalogram (EEG), which records brain waves through sensors attached to the scalp. An EEG printout of brain activity looks like a seismic chart. An excited brain emits brain waves akin to an earthquake. These mental energy waves are broadcast into the world.
