Internal Damaging Effect From Negative Thinking - Dadi Janki

Negative thinking is damaging in so many ways. Negativity is all-consuming and cannot share space with positivity. It can crowd your mind and your spirit to the point that it blocks any feeling of happiness from reaching you.

When negative thoughts prevail in mind, do they help you come to constructive conclusions or solutions? Of course not...they actually prevent you from doing so. What is more, they don’t make the situation go away any faster or create a quicker resolution. They don’t help in any way at all.

Another internal damaging effect from negative thinking is that it becomes a barrier around your mind and soul, blocking out any light from getting in. In that obscurity, your mind becomes busy and easily falls into circular thinking patterns, where the same ideas and memories keep going around and around, never letting up. Your spirit becomes heavy, sadness or anger creeps in and takes up any room you may have had for feeling great. You find it hard to sleep, hard to smile, hard to be kind, and hard to find peace. You have blocked out all the positive energy from coming to your aid.
