There is Still Beauty in the World! The Positive Thread!

I am making this thread because I am also tired of the doom and gloom that lately is dominating the board. I am not a pie in the sky person I recognize there is a lot of real threats and negative things going on out there and we can't ignore them. However I have always said that one must balance the negative with the positive.

There are is still a lot of beauty and positive in the world if one focuses on it, or in other words looks for it. Ancient wisdom teaches that energy follows thought. Meaning that which we think on the most is where we will mostly focus our energy and efforts etc. So its not rocket science to realize if you predominately focus on negative things that is where your energy will be and the world will indeed seem as if it is going to hell in a hand basket as the saying goes. Also it can contribute to disease when there is no outlet or balance of positive energy.

You have all heard perception is reality well I believe there is a lot of truth to that and science supports that, check out this video and it will help dispel the doubts.

Science also confirms everything is vibrating at certain frequencies and quantum mechanics suggests that all creation is because of vibration. So every thought, every action, every food we eat, every sound we listen to or make, is a vibration of sorts and it is the language of the universe so to speak. If we take a medicine or an herb or what ever we are introducing a vibration into our bodies as a means of communication to tell the body we want it to do something like relieve pain or heal disease etc.

Everything starts with a thought nothing happens without a thought first conceptualizing the idea. So it stands to reason that negative thought effects our world and perhaps more importantly us as individuals and as groups and the entire group of humanity.

OK after that long winded introduction
I thought it would be nice to have at least one thread where we can go to hear many uplifting stories and positive thoughts to help us balance out the negative of which there is an over abundance of here and elsewhere?

So please nothing negative in this thread if you would. And don't forget to live a little, love a little, help a little, enjoy friends family and loved ones when you can, have some fun and laugh a little also, as it is all good for the soul and gives us the strength to face the negative and over come it no matter how bad it is.

Please add a positive thought or story. It doesn't have to be anything profound just uplifting in some way. Thanks! I will start off first in the next post.

Ok here is my contribution. I went to a sort of spiritual retreat this last weekend and it really uplifted me. I had forgotten the power of a group of people all focusing on common goals. We discussed the meaning of life and the future and what we could do to uplift humanity. We also did group healing and work. We also just ate and drank together and had fun.

It was so energizing and uplifting I realized I had fallen to the negative side of things way too much as i hadn't done anything like that in a long time. As I said there is some serious stuff going down that needs to be addressed but I feel so much more refreshed and more ready to confront the evils that may be coming our way.

It wasn't a religious retreat per say but more of a synthesis of any and all from all backgrounds, religious and non-religious. It gave me a glimpse of what we as humanity could be despite differing belief systems and methods. We all came together as one in common cause, focus, and energy.

Gather your friends and family around you and start focusing your energies on the positive. Start with prayer and or meditation or what ever your belief system you prefer then when ready move into action. If you don't have anyone around you now you feel comfortable with then work on yourself and become the sort of person that will attract those you seek. There is an awakening of sorts going on as many recognize, and maybe if we focus on what the majority have in common instead of nitpicking our differences we will eventually come together as never before?

Our power is in unity. Not the false unity that seeks to destroy individualism but the unity of heart and mind in the common goal of uplifting humanity and moving into a future where there is more love, brotherhood, voluntary cooperation, and mutual respect etc.

Thanks I'll keep that in mind. Do you have a positive thought or story to add?

Compelled to add.

I was reading up on Reiki and I read how it is almost like the feeling I get when I hug my children. That undying love and joy. So I am leaving my negativity at the door. I have three beautiful children and a wonderful husband. Times are tough but I need to stop and smell the roses. Just taking a step back and seeing how much joy my children get when they find a toad. Showing my 3 year old her first rainbow.

We have such a beautiful earth. I can't wait to spread my love to of the earth to my kids.

Good thread to start

Hi Hawkiye.

Were cool right ?Just asking...

I got to a point where I entered a personal story. One of meditation and chackra's.

Before this I was aware but always a bit skeptical.
After this first 2 and a halve hour introduction I've walked in a perpetual state of eternal bliss. for two weeks.

Hawkiye -- Thank You.

Know that this thread is much appreciated!!

It's good to remember the (necessary) balance, as well as to contribute & share the positive as much as possible!!

My spirit is buoyed by my son. 5 months old today. My little chunky monkey.

He reminds me just how amazing and wondrous the world is when you see it with fresh eyes.

Every time I feed him, we "hold hands" -- he grabs a finger and holds on, and I hold his entire fist in my hand.

He touches and rubs my face whenever he can. Reminds me of a blind person "seeing" someone for the first time. But, while my son's feeling my face, he stares into my eyes. (Right now, the brown is seeping into his iris just around the pupil. Otherwise, his eyes are a dark green... and were green/blue at birth.)

And he's just learning how to laugh!! Especially when I do kissy-piggy noises on his cheeks!

Again, Thank You Hawkiye.

Oh Yeah absolutely we're cool! Thanks for posting and do share the story if you don't mind?

I assume you were wondering if we're cool due to the last thread you and I were interacting in? I it is almost never personal with me and I wasn't focusing on you I was just using some of your comments to tee off on, so sorry if I seemed like I was going at you.

And that is the kind of stuff I have been more focused on and need to balance out more. Afterwards is what made me reflect on the retreat I attended and how fast I jumped right back into what has been more my habit lately. So I did some meditation this morning and got the energy back from the retreat hence this thread helping me and hopefully others shift focus to more of the positive.

Thanks for those comments. Kids can often remind us to stop and smell the roses and enjoy life and have some fun. I believe we are here primarily to find and have joy.

Thank you! We can learn a lot from our kids about why we are here.

The question is: how can people tap into that? Negative thoughtpatterns poison the mind and the body. I see a lot of craving amongst the people for something greater, something higher.. they know that it's good for them. People are desperate, and always looking for something to kill the depression, fear, etc. It's been like that for who knows how long.

Knowledge.. tools of the trade.

There is no other liberation than liberation of the mind. Finding peace. It may have something to do with inner discipline and focusing your thoughts.

We are just starting, and the future will be cool. Jaw-droppingly cool.

Great thread idea!
I feel wonderful just reading others' experiences and thoughts! Thanks to all who are contributing!

Mine are simple. I am thrilled by the simplest things these days.

1. Without going into details, a few years ago, I had some physical issues that made it impossible for me to eat oranges, avacados, cheddar cheese and chocolate, as they would cause a TERRIBLE migraine headache. I haven't had any of those foods for about 5 years or more. This week, I discovered that the problems are over and I can eat these foods again! Biting into a sweet juicy orange after being deprived for 5+ years was SO incredible! not to mention guacamole! I am enjoying eating these foods and I'm very excited that I can again! I haven't tried chocolate yet, but OMG! It's next!
I'm really looking forward to that!

You said, "our power is in unity" and you are SO right!

2. I go to water aerobics twice a week and the people in this class have become my friends. Some of them are older, some younger, some in good shape, some not. But we meet twice a week and it's so good to have them in my life. Today, the music was loud and we were singing and hopping around in the water, laughing and having a blast! It's SO much fun and I love it!

3. My dogs bring me GREAT joy. Especially Jaia (in my avatar). He's my soul-dog.
I don't know what I'd do without him!

Thanks for providing the place to share our joy!

Great Thread! Lets make this a big one, the world needs it right now!

I want to share this idea about positive thinking that his me when I was writing the NOW thread in my sig. below.

It goes a little something like this. Everyone has experienced this at one point or another and the best exaomple I found is cars. Say you want to get a Jeep or you just bought one. Like magic they start appearing everywhere! You see them more often than any other car, they start sticking out to you.

This experience that most people have had 1st hand is proof positive of what you focus on, you see more of in your life.what you focus on, you will see more of in your life.

Now having said that I wanted to share a story that has really amazed me and changed my views, yet again, on how magical this world truly is.

I started taking on reiki clients after I completed Reiki 2 about a year ago. Three weeks ago I recieved a call from a distressed woman. She told me her mother's kidneys were failing and she was on dialysis. Her mother was wheelchair ridden and in terrible pain. She hadn't walked in almost a year and needed help doing just about anything.

She said she saw my website and wanted to know if reiki could help. I told her about what I do and how Reiki brings balance to the body, mind, and spirit. She scheduled an appointment and I made my first house call because of the severity of her condition.

I entered the house and my patient who is about 80 years old was surrounded by her son, grandson, and grandsons girlfriend. Only her grandson spoke english, and he did the translating. Everyone seemed tense, so I put some light soothing music on and went to work. They all stayed in the room and watched me which has never happened to me before. At first it was a little awkward for me but I just closed my eyes and began to feel the Reiki flow.

The treatment was done and I asked her grandson to ask her how she was feeling. Se said she wasn't feeling any pain and it had been a long time since that had happened. Her sons eyes began to swell up with tears and he thanked me in portugese.

I was very affected by how appreciative they all were. It really filled me up with love and joy and reminded me why I love Reiki so much.

Now the crazy part.

I get a call 2 days later from the daughter who first scheduled the appt. She asked to schedule another appointment and sounded a little strange. I asked her how the grandmother was feeling and she told me that her brother had wheeled her out in her chair the next day for her dialysis appointment and he turned around to open the car door and she had stood up under her own power and got into the car!

The woman had been wheelchair bound for almost a year and after one session she was standing under her own power! I was blown away. I have always wanted to be a doctor so I could heal people but didn't want the pressure, cost, and time commitment of medical school. Now I help people heal themselves and have witnessed some amazing feats.

I feel so blessed and lucky to be alive in this amazing world.

Keep looking for the good in all situations and you will be amazed at what the universe will show you!

What a nice thread, I usually dont expect this level of awareness on ATS but when it pops up its such a nice change to the usual fear propaganda. I feel the alternative community has been the target of a fear campaign aimed at those who have left the main fear generators like main stream media in the dust. It seems many have swallowed it hook line and sinker.

2010 is the year of manifestation, a year we can create our own reality faster and easier than ever. This June/July period is esspecially potent due to celestial body positionings amoung other things such as the exponetial influx of 4d pos energies.

The whole aim of the game on earth at present as I see it is this polarity war between positive and negative. As you can tell by my avatar im usually all for lightworking positive vs. negative, but one of the best ways to fully leave fear and to completely accept all is to trancend the pos/neg paradigm into oneness. From the infnite point of view, all is perfect, all is as it was meant to be, if a bias is seen then it is based on your finite perspective or limited understanding. One can come to see the negatives as a part of themself, one can begin to love all things including the negative, for without negative would positive be positive? Everything in creation serves a divine purpose, although this is not always seen from within the third density illusion. The point im getting at is, its possible to read no positive words, read and hear only negative....and feel love, joy and harmoney as you see those negative words as part of the one infnite creator and perfect in every way you begin to love your opposite as much as your own positivity. And seeing the negatives as oneself means your fear them only as much as you fear yourself.

For entities striving to polarize to the positive path, which is anyone interested in this thread, the absorption of positive material and radiation of positive thoughts and energies is wondefully beneficial. But, it must be seen and accepted that the mind is complete, the mind contains all things. A positive may resist the negative thought popping up from the infinite background but this will concentrate their appearence, what you resist persists and what you accept dissapears.

Unwind and relax into the arms of the creator, feel peace of knowing all is well, nothing needs to be done, all is one and that one is perfect and loving.

Thank you for this thread, hopefully it won't fall into oblivion too soon.

I live by "the power of positive thought".

I entered into the BBOT writing contest, and this is a testament to positive thought. Moreso than that it is really, truly how I believe and how I live my life.

So my contribution to this positive thought, is a post already here :
[BBOT] Everything for a reason

Apologies in advance for the shameless plug!

OK OK OK!!!! WTH is going on here. This thread has NO place on ATS. We are here to be paranoid and think everything is a conspiracy. What are you trying to do? Oh maybe this is a conspiracy. Your trying to make me feel good inside and divert me from something evil approaching me this very second arent you? ADMIT IT!! You are.

Your just trying to make me focus on positive things so that the negative has a chance to seep into me and dominate and control my life. ARENT YOU!!

Well its working so i hope your happy. I am now focusing on positive energy and thinking good thoughts. Damnit!!!

LOL ok i had to be the first one to go mental. Sorry just my sense of humor.

Ok well i will say that i agree with ya. There has been so much negative stuff going on in my life lately. I am having lots of anxiety over my relationship and possible upcoming changes to my work life and the ever present issues with my kids and ex wife so its had me down for the last several weeks. Reading this thread came ata good time. I think i need to stop and reevaluate if all these things arent possibly my own doing because of the negative vibes i have been carrying around. Ya know i just dont stop to appreciate the beauty of things much. I tend to see the thorns instead of the rose petals.

So with that said i am going to try and make this night at work a good one by being mor epositive and smiling more. Lets see where that takes me.

Good thread and it still has no place on ATS and should be tossed out.

This year my son and I were saved after a gas leak. Although I know my memory is not as good as it was, I am thankful for each day extra I have with my wonderful child. Each day prior and each day since I promised I would send my child to sleep with a smile and awake to a smile. I am learning each day how to share the love I have with others.

I am an artist and today was a funny day, I found some great clay/ dirt at our allotment, great for throwing on a wheel and firing in a kiln, so i grabbed lots of plastic bags and filled them with clay and started carrying them home.
It was only when i met my friend in the street and she asked "what the hell are you carrying lots of bags of dirt for " did i understand why the funny looks on the way back and how muddy I was. We had to sit on the pavement as we were laughing so much.. that felt good.

I have noticed that the more we fight something the stronger it gets
I'm still learning how to apply that !
