Easy Ways to Clear Negativity
Negative thinking and feelings get us down. They create anxiety and irritation if we try to repress them. They can also be a burden to others if we keep talking about them. (Plus, talking about them usually just causes them to repeat whereas clearing them allows them to go away.)
Here are several methods to clear the negative energy, thoughts, and feelings so you can enjoy your life, be productive and attract good things to yourself.
This Hawaiian method of releasing negative energy consists of simple sentences that can clear a person, place or thing. Simply focus on the object that needs clearing (maybe your mind or a co-worker or the traffic) and say “I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me, thank you.”
Judgments bring us down! You can feel their weight in your body (if you didn’t already reach for sugar to alleviate them). If you can identify the judgment (“I judged my boyfriend as focusing on the negative.”), then you can forgive and clear the judgment, “I forgive myself for judging my boyfriend for focusing on the negative.” Remember you are only responsible for yourself.
An easy three-part breath into your stomach, into your chest and out all through your mouth, can clear the darkest of feelings. To be guided through this check out my breath meditations: self-esteem, self-forgiveness or self-love at www.joyinfinite.com. I also have free breath meditations available when you sign up for the newsletter.

5. Process Fear with Inelia Benz (www.ascension101.com)
“You can do this exercise at any time, whenever you feel fear. For best results, it is best to do it in a quiet and private space and working through a list of fears you have written beforehand. Sit or lie down comfortably with your back straight and close your eyes. Breathe in deeply and slowly into your abdomen, then breathe out as fast as you can. Repeat, breathe in slowly, then out as fast as you can. And once more, breathe in slowly and slowly, then out fast. Now continue breathing at your own pace. Scan you physical body from head to toe, to find the energy of fear. Look for fear. If you cannot find it, read one of your fear items in your list and scan your body again. Once you find fear in your body, simply look at it. Don’t analyze it, just look at it. Allow it to be there. Allow it to exist. Allow it to grow and to be. It could be a physical discomfort, such as a knot, a pain, a location of energy, or through a thought or memory, or it could be just the emotion of fear. Just look at it. Observe it. Feel it. Allow it to be here. And say, “fear, you are welcome here.” Welcome here. Welcome fear and allow it to grow. Let it get bigger and bigger. Allow it to grow, and grow… as big as it can go . Let it be as big as it can possibly get. Allow it to express itself to you. But don’t analyze. Simply allow whatever comes. Whether words, thoughts, memories, Follow it if it changes into another emotion, or changes locations in your body. Whatever it does, welcome the new expression. “you are welcome here, thought… you are welcome here emotion, words, memories, you are welcome here fear.” You are welcome here. Watch it. Observe it. Now, allow yourself to get closer and embrace fear in whatever expression it has chosen. give it light and love, and allow it to exist. Thank it for whatever job it had for you, for being with you for so long. Now, release it into Oneness. Allow it to go free back into Source. Breathe deeply now. As you breathe in, breathe in light and love. And as you breathe out, allow that light and love to go to and fill the space where fear used to be. Now, simply breathe deeply and slowly. Breathing in light and love, and as you breathe out, allow that light and love to expand throughout your body and out into your environment. Now, scan your body from your toes to your head and see if there is any of that fear left. If so, repeat the exercise straight away. If not, you can use your list to repeat the exercise, or end now by opening your eyes and having a good stretch. Repeat this exercise every day until there is no more fear in your life.”
