Negative thoughts are constantly bombarding all of us as we navigate through our lives, but some people are tormented because they have so little power to refuse them. When someone is prone to persistent negative thoughts, there is most often a spiritual reason that prevents them from overcoming their persuasion.
Every living being on our planet is born with the instinct to survive, and each individual has the remarkable capacity to overcome a myriad of negative obstacles. However, when one’s resolve has been compromised by the intrusion of negative energy/spirits, it diminishes their capacity to resist the impact of higher level negativity.
Why are some people more sensitive than others, so that they seem to attract and absorb more negativity? Although it’s partly due to their level of perception and intuitive knowledge of how to deal with it, I think there’s a spiritual reason at its core. When a child is bothered at the higher level, he or she will simply say: “No!” and it’s usually enough to stop the negative influence but, if a child is subjected to abuse, they’re susceptible to being overwhelmed by the negative energies/spirits that are attracted to such events.
When I met Leo Jean, he told me how he had helped over 40 suicidal teenagers by giving them a more positive outlook on their life. In the few years prior to our meeting, kids from the community used to ask Leo if they could talk with him; all of them had been abused in one way or the other; and Leo helped them to identify with how he had overcome his own difficult experiences to discover there was a way past their own problems. Leo says of the tough times: “It’s just a passage of time.”
It’s alarming to me why so many people seriously contemplate committing suicide because, to me, it’s like committing self-murder and I could never hurt anyone, let alone myself. In my entire life, despite everything I went through, I only once had the thought of ending it all. I was 16 at the time, and it was just a fleeting thought. But I made sure that I immediately removed it from my mind, because it stunned me that I would have such a negative idea. I’ve always believed that in life there must always be something bright and positive to move toward on the other side of any difficulty.
So where did that thought come from? Was there a part of me that was so negative that I would resort to such destruction? Or, at a time when I was emotionally distraught, did the thought come from outside myself and I mistook it for my own? I think it was the latter. It was only during my work with Leo that I was able to fully understand that the energy of such a negative thought comes from the higher level and that I had intuitively refused it.
The first time I heard of someone being taunted to self-destruct was over 20 years ago, when a feisty 80-year-old woman came to see us because she was tormented by a cacophony of voices that were continuously urging her to throw herself from her 5-storey balcony. More recently was the healing across distance of a very sensitive 20-year-old woman, Lisa*, that had allowed the energies of others to affect her so much that she was unable to turn off her absorption of negativity. Both women intuitively knew the source of their self-destructive tendencies was spiritual, and they were brave enough to fight back for their lives.
Five years before she contacted us, Lisa had been diagnosed as schizophrenic. She suffered from extremely painful headaches and was taking medication that helped to lessen, but never removed, the pain. Lisa explained that she felt she no longer had any “barriers to the negative energy emitted by negative people” and felt that, if it continued, it would lead her to her “ultimate destruction – suicide”. Yet she went on to describe how she felt those thoughts could not be her own, because she was a very positive, creative and outgoing person. As a gifted performer, her greatest desire was to be able to stand on stage without the debilitating pain.
Not only had Lisa opened to several spirits years earlier but, as time went on, more of her spiritual openings became jammed open, amplifying her thoughts of self-destruction. Without a positively oriented spirit to help her at the spiritual level, Lisa had been unable to refuse the onslaught of negativity and had become more susceptible to it. She had taken time off from university and was living at home; her father was paying for her healing, but we never spoke to him. She convinced us that she would be ready and able to refuse when we worked with her over the phone.
Once her damaged chakras were repaired and she was closed to negative energy/spirits, Lisa found that, by working with her new positively oriented spirit, she was finally able to close to the destructive energy that she felt around certain people. During the next month, while she was receiving daily spiritual support, she learned to refuse the negative energies that used to engulf her at university and in other public places. Her headaches stopped; she was off to work in another country with friends for the summer; and she looked forward to returning to school in the fall.
A strong resolve and a positively oriented spirit provide the refusal power that’s needed to defeat self-destructive and other negative thoughts that can be emanating from a higher level source.
