I work in healthcare. It's the most stressful environment I've personally ever been exposed to. Nearly all of my coworkers do nothing all day but curse, gripe and back stab each other. I find in order to avoid being dragged down into other peoples negativity I use NLP. NLP works, at least for me in my work environment, much better than the law of attraction. Law of Attraction is supposed to help you avoid people who are out of line with your harmony but in my case, EVERYONE is out of line with my harmony. lol.
I know this is silly but it works every time.
As soon as I hear someone say. "Oh God I hate this place. They never give us enough help to do the job. They don't care if we drop dead in the middle of the hall.....etc... I do this:
I imagine that there is an invisible force field going up around me. It's so powerful that I can hear it crackle and hum. It has a slight yellow glow that only I can see. This force field blocks out all negativity. I can hear the negativity and understand what they are saying but the force field prevents me from being affected by it. It allows me to keep my harmony. Now as far as remembering to do things when you need to do them, I also imagine that this force field losses it's strength after about an hour. I actually set my watch to beep at the top of every hour and re apply the force field.
If someone says something personal to hurt me and I can't do anything about it, such as a terrible boss or something, I do this:
My boss said something just terrible to me one time. I'm not a violent man but he made me so angry that I wanted to rip his head off. It affected me for weeks. Even my sleep was affected. But I have children to feed so quitting was not an option.
The NLP technique goes like this:
1. Relive the experience as if it were a movie playing out in your head. Wear what you were wearing and put yourself in the exact same setting. Stop the movie a few seconds after the incident that gave you the negative emotion. Notice that the anger is still there just as strongly as it was when it first happened.
2. Now rewind the movie and play it again, only this time put in some background music that doesn't match the negative emotion. I used something goofy and upbeat, like the theme to Benny Hill show.
3. Then once you have done this, you can look back and discover that the negative emotion is completely gone.
After doing this, I was completely over what my boss had said to me. On a scale from one to ten, my rage went from a 12 to a 0 just like that. It worked so well that I went back in my past and applied that to things that had happened to me as far back as grade school.
