The power of negativity

QUESTION: Masters, why negative energy always feels overwhelming? At least that’s how it feels for us who are sensitive to energies. Can a person be highly positive and overwhelm negativity? I had a dream where I was brought to a place surrounded by negative energy. I saw some people and a picture of a lady. The picture itself has a strong negative energy. I circled counter-clockwise to create my own vortex there. Masters, did I just encounter with a discarnate? If so, who was she and has she went back Home? ~Suffian, Malaysia

ANSWER: You are living in a duality of positive and negative. Positivity is everything that feels good to you and makes you happy, while negativity is everything that causes you fear and pain. It is difficult to remember your pleasant experiences, but everyone remembers the painful ones.

You learn about life through conquering your negative lessons. The default energy on Earth is negativity, because without its presence no one would learn anything. Negative occurrences gather other negative activities to them—the old “misery loves company.” Everyone wants to share their bad experiences, because they feel horrible and want everyone else to be there with them.

Life is a series of choices: what do you want to learn and experience? Your primary choice is a negative experience or a positive one. A soul can choose to reject negative thoughts and move toward positive ones, bringing in a fresh place within which to reside.

You did not have an encounter with a discarnate; you had a dream reflecting thoughts that had recently occupied your mind about negativity, and your feeling that it is too overpowering for you to overcome. You created a “villain” to explain your hesitance to work to remove the negativity and replace it with positive energy.

Every time you think or feel a negative energy, stop what you are doing and ask: why is it there? You are bringing to yourself that which you need to experience. You can learn from the event by taking the negativity and choosing to replace it with a positive solution. This process will also make you aware of one of the lessons you chose. Once you repel negative energy, make the choice to replace it with universal unconditional love—nothing is more positive.
