Reverse Implied Negativity to Positive
By: Janet L. Hall
other day my husband commented on an item that
he hated the placement of it as he was
constantly knocking it over, so was Brunno, our
dog. Strong word hate. So I've now moved the
I asked what other items, if any, bothered him.
And then I thought to myself, what bothers me?
What is in our home that has "implied
negativity" to us?
Let's look at "implied negativity". Something
that is indirectly or disguised that causes
negative thoughts or emotions when looked upon.
Now you know clutter causes negativity, however
I'm talking about the items in your home or
office that you might not even be
aware of that cause negativity. Items that you
"no longer see" because "they are 'always'
let's take off our blinders, really look and
explore together around our home or office and
look at what we've placed
in our spaces and what those items mean to us
Let's start with your art and pictures. Do you
have any artwork or pictures in your space that
cause you any negative emotions or thoughts?
Have no value to you any longer? Doesn't feed
your spirit or soul?
instance: I have a poster I had framed a very
long time ago. I mean a long time ago. I ordered
the poster, I had the poster
specially framed at a frame shop. I no longer
have it hanging on the wall; however it sits in
my shipping department, behind the door (bad
Feng Shui) and says, among other things, How To
Be Happy In Spite Of Yourself. I took it off the
wall a long time ago because I want to be happy
because of myself! So for me it had "implied
negativity" and I didn't want it around me. Yet
for some reason (the frame was expensive) I've
held on to it, stashing it behind the door. Not
any more...to the trash it went frame and all!
(I couldn't get it out of the frame and if I
haven't wanted to use the frame before now I
know I will never use it).
you have a wall hanging you are holding on to
you no longer want? Then remove it from your
space and feel the weight lifted and the
positive come into your life and that space.
let's look at knickknacks, collections, awards,
and books. Do any of these items cause you any
negative emotions or thoughts? Have no value to
you any longer? (Read that, learned that, been
there and done that). Doesn't feed your spirit
This past two weeks I really looked at my books
(I LOVE books) and have decided what I no longer
need and what I wanted to release so others
might learn or benefit from them. Also some of
the books were sad reminders of what I didn't
finish or perhaps follow through with so I've
taken them off my bookcases. I'm only keeping
the books that I'm still learning from, were
autographed, or use for research. Now when I
look at my bookcases I have a more positive
feeling then before.
Okay let's do one more together and then you can
take a walk through your spaces and start
"seeing" with a new set of eyes.
Let's look at your clothes in your closet. Do
you have any clothes that cause you any negative
emotions or thoughts? For instance, clothes that
might remind you of your weight gain? Have no
value to you any longer? (Never wear it). Makes
you feel dated or brings back bad memories?
Doesn't feed your spirit or soul?
might find a lot of items that you didn't know
had "implied negativity" for you; however just
by moving, removing and better yet getting rid
of you will begin to reverse the negative to a
more positive space and a more positive state of
Either sell, donate or pass your items forward
if they still have use. I bet you can find
someone that will love what no longer feeds you.
