Metaphors for Shifting Negative Thoughts by Wayne Dyer & Jack Canfield
Posted May 6, 2012on:
I think that we would all agree that negative thought patterns cause a lot of unnecessary challenges and it is important to learn how to shift them. In the last couple days I have been fortunate to learn two metaphors from amazing teachers that can help us do this. I would like to share them with you now.
Jack Canfield: On a phone call today, Jack talked about picturing a light switch. Whenever our thoughts start to bring us into darkness or negativity, we can visualize flipping the switch to turn the light on.
Wayne Dyer: In his book, “Wishes Fulfilled”, Wayne recommends we visualize a conveyer belt that is constantly moving and always available to us. On this belt are all of our thought choices. We can pick them up or put them back whenever we want. When we find ourselves involved in negative thinking we simply return those thoughts to the conveyer belt and choose new ones that are more uplifting.
What do you think? How do you shift your negative thoughts?
