Negative thoughts. All of us have them, at times. How we respond and deal with them is the key to living in a positive state and enjoying our lives. Know in-depth How to Stop The Black Marble and its entire process in this highly informative article and implement it.
Do you get up with negative thoughts? Do they impact your day? Initially, we find them annoying, frustrating, and intrusive but ….they have a tendency to snowball, one trip into another. Our subconscious mind will find reasons, perhaps from previous events, situations, and conversations to support and magnify our negativity. The day can start with one negative thought and you think oh no what’s happening, panic sets in and as it goes on the negative thoughts take hold, and our day goes downhill. We start to feel more out of control, not functioning well, irritable, and even paranoid about what others might be thinking or speaking about us. Recognise any of this?
The consequence of this is we don’t cope well with everyday tasks or situations or at work. We beat ourselves up or get distressed, and confused and the day doesn’t end well. Guess what it begins again the next day. Soon we can be in a continual negative, stressed state and not in control. This can lead to panic, anxiety, or depression.
There can be many reasons why negative thoughts take over an individual. Recognising it’s happening and taking action is so important.
So what can stop a negative thought?
Here’s a simple technique called D.R.E.A.M. that you might like to try. This is where the black marble has a role! This is a quick, simple, yet incredibly powerful intervention you can practice at any time, which can stop unwanted, negative thoughts and feelings in their tracks AND get yourself back into a positive, thriving mindset. Sound good?
In this technique, I like to think of a jar of white marble which are all positive thoughts, and a black one is thrown in the mix ad shattered and spread. This black marble is our negative thought gaining momentum.
Think of the D.R.E.A.M technique as a fire extinguisher to use quickly to put out any fires you have inadvertently built. It is well made, powerful, and can put out any fire.
It is a 5-step process of STOP AND CHANGE ACTIONS: – Detect – Reward – Escape- Amend- Magnify
DETECT – you are having an unhelpful, limiting, negative thought or feeling
REWARD– reward your elf for detecting, the unhelpful thought. Praise yourself out loud. Taking back control.
ESCAPE – from the situation that has brought the unhelpful thought on. Walk away, change the conversation, change the activity.
AMEND – it to a positive empowering thought
MAGNIFY – your new thought and image to make it bigger, stronger, and more powerful. You are in control of this.
If you practice this regularly (it’s not a one-off!) and use it, then you have the power to change those negative thoughts. Because of your confidence in your ability to put out fires, you’ll stop worrying about fires and stop building them. You have a brilliant fire extinguisher.
If you do this right and regularly and stop negative thoughts in their tracks, replacing them with positive thoughts based on reality and chosen by you it will leave you
. Feeling calmer
. Free from Panic
. Not waking with anticipation of negative events
. Not on the path of anxiety or depression
Try this out over 7 days, with intent. What I am sharing is just a very small technique from my program.
