To Brainwash = to indoctrinate so intensively and thoroughly as to effect a radical transformation of beliefs and mental attitudes…. (This is the definition of one online dictionary)
I often find myself guided by what to write and today is one of those days…. On occasion I hear people talk about “Brainwashing” sometimes I feel they have the right attitude when it comes to the media, bad news, being told to believe the world is full of negative circumstances which are out of our control. I personally choose to avert my attention from the news and the media, as well as negative people whenever possible. I choose to live my life surrounded by positive vibes, this is my decision, it’s a personal one which not everyone agrees with and thats fine… No worries, everyone is different…
On the other hand occasionally I hear from people who feel that positive thinking and the Law of Attraction is a form of brainwashing. I have to admit this makes me smile, actually it makes me feel very happy!
Here’s how I see it ~ (and if you are reading this as a person who would rather be brainwashed by negative thinking, maybe I can help you change your thoughts) Our minds are open and ready to accept all the wonderful, and not so wonderful, things sent to us each and every day. We are like sponges soaking up the vibes, either negative or positive. In the world right now we are seeing a global shift into a new paradigm, we are becoming much more conscious about what is going on around us. Many people want to see positive change around the world as well as in their own lives. Books like The Secret opened up positive thinking and The Law of Attraction to the world (including me) I was so happy and grateful to have been introduced to this new way of thinking, at a very low point in my life, it helped me to see a light at the end of a very dark tunnel, it gave me hope and restored my love for life and all its wonders. Is this brainwashing? Maybe so…
I was introduced to a whole new way of thinking and I still learn new things everyday, I am retraining my mind. I know many other people are doing the same. I think it’s just wonderful, it fills my heart with such joy, happiness and gratitude for life. Perfect!
To Brainwash = aimed at destroying a person’s basic convictions and attitudes. (This is the definition of another dictionary)
Clearly there are 2 ways to look at “Brainwashing” This is fine too… There always has to be 2 sides to everything, this is the law of polarity.
Now here comes my main point and I think most people will agree with me on this and if you dont thats fine too….
If we had 2 choices in life, to either focus upon negative things happening in life and in the future, things going from bad to worse, from worse to downright horrendous OR to focus upon positive things happening in life and in the future, things going from ok to great, from great to amazing, from amazing to absolutely perfect. Which would you choose to focus on? Which would you embrace as a way of life?
If you could only ever focus on one or the other for the rest of your life which would it be Positives or Negatives?
I thought so! Ok, ok I understand that life cant always be a bed of roses, but if we can choose the positive train of thought more than the negative and expect the best possible outcomes in life then we are heading in the right direction
For me personally I choose positive vibes, happiness, freedom and choice, following my passions, living the dream, laughing, loving and truly living whenever I possibly can… I choose to spread these vibes to whoever will listen, my mission is clear, to spread them right around the world and back.
Is this brainwashing ~ who knows… who cares… We are the judges of that. In all honesty we are the judges of anything in life, it’s all about our own personal viewpoint and how we look at things. Each to their own
The purpose of choice is to choose and we can all choose which path we take. Freewill.
The purpose of life is to live and we can all choose to live the way we decide. Freewill.
