How To Stop Negative Thoughts From Manifesting In 3 Steps

Do you want to stop manifesting negativity? Here’s how to stop negative thoughts from manifesting in 3 steps.

The best way to stop negative thoughts from manifesting is to use them as a guide back to positivity.

Our natural reaction to negative thoughts is fear. But you can’t fight negativity with more negativity!

The most effective way to eliminate negative thinking is to remember that you are the consciousness that witnesses these thoughts in your mind.

Just like how you have the ability to choose negative thoughts, you also have the same ability to choose positive ones.

Every moment is an opportunity to witness your negative thoughts, forgive yourself, and choose again.

This power to choose thoughts is your superpower.

Follow these 3 steps to stop your negative thoughts from manifesting.

1. Witness Your Negative Thoughts

The first step to stopping negative thoughts from manifesting is to witness your misalignment as soon as possible.

As I explain in my book Feeling Good, there’s a period of time between the asking and the receiving of your manifestation. This period is known as the buffer of time.

This means there is plenty of time for you to pivot before a negative thought has enough momentum to manifest itself physically.

The best thing you can do to stop negative thoughts from manifesting is to notice them as soon as they show up.

Bringing your negative thoughts into your consciousness is the only way to release them.

Darkness cannot survive in the presence of light. And so it is with negative thoughts.

You don’t need to fear your fear. In fact, you can use your negative thoughts as a compass back to positivity. 

Negative thoughts show you what you don’t want so you can clarify what you do want.

You can always tell whether you’re thinking high vibrational or low vibrational thoughts by the way that you feel.

If you’re feeling low energy, anxious, or worried—that’s a sign that you’re subscribing to negative low vibrational thoughts and you need to do something about it.

Witnessing your negative thoughts helps you remember the fact that you are not your negative thoughts.

They are just thoughts you keep thinking.

The recognition that you are the consciousness that sits behind these thoughts gives you the power to choose again.

2. Forgive Yourself

The second step to stopping negative thoughts from manifesting is to forgive yourself for choosing negative thoughts.

Don’t blame yourself for manifesting negative or things that you don’t want. It happens to all of us.

You can’t fight negativity with more negativity.

So the most loving thing you can do right now is to forgive yourself.

Love is the emotion with the highest vibrational frequency possible according to Abraham-Hicks’ Emotional Guidance Scale. And forgiveness is the quickest way back to love.

Celebrate your desire to shift and use this moment as an opportunity to raise your vibration to a higher place.

Use this prayer to the Universe to forgive yourself and recalibrate your vibrational frequency, “Universe, I recognize that I am out of alignment with love. I forgive myself and I choose again.”

By shifting your thinking from fear to love, you experience a miracle on the thought level which will result in the experience of a miracle on the physical level.

3. Reach For Better-Feeling Thoughts

The final step to stopping negative thoughts from manifesting is to actively reach for better-feeling thoughts.

Now that you have surrendered your negative thoughts and cleared up your energy, it’s time to get back into vibrational alignment with what you want.

Some simple but powerful ways to raise your vibration are to recite I Am affirmationspray to the Universe, and follow a manifestation meditation.

Simply do whatever you can to support your desire to feel good.

Remember that vibration can build momentum because of the “like attracts like” effect of the Law of Attraction.

This means the more you reach for better-feeling thoughts, the easier it will be to maintain your positive vibration.

If saying a positive affirmation makes you feel better—keep going! That’s your chance to ride that wave of positivity all the way back to the top of the Emotional Guidance Scale.

Every moment is a new opportunity to begin again, choose better-feelings thoughts, and manifest more positive outcomes.
