Dear Friends,

Many people are unaware of just how powerful positive thinking is, and how much of an impact negative thinking can have on your life and your magick. While it can be pretty annoying when things are going rough to hear people keep telling you “think positive” it is in fact something that can have a profound affect on you, particularly in your magick.

Negative thinking, or what I like to call “stinking thinking” can transcend itself in to your magick if you are not careful. It can also affect how things work in your life because your emotions strongly influence the energies that are attracted to you. If you are continuously negative, positive energies can have a very difficult time getting through that negative energy to you which can leave you in a very miserable state. This stinking thinking will also present itself in any magick that you undertake, resulting in a serious lack of success.

One of the most important factors in successful magick is your mind. If your mind is not in the right place, your magick won’t be either. Magick is causing a change or event to occur by your will. It is a very powerful practice that takes our concentration and our complete focus. If our “focus” is full of negative energy, how well do you think our magick is going to turn out?

Imagine a child being told to clean their room by their parents. The child doesn’t really want to, but their parents have informed them that if they clean their room, they can go outside and play. They don’t want to clean their room, but they want the end result of getting what they want, which is to play. So they rush through the job focusing only on the end result. The room is not actually cleaned properly, it is more of a “clean on the surface” type job. Toys and clothes are shoved into closets and beds, trash is hidden away. The room isn’t actually clean because the underlying mess is still there, it is now just hidden away.

When we are filled with negativity when performing our magick, we are the child with the messy room. We are performing magick because we want the end result, whatever that may be. In many cases, we are performing our magick to get rid of the negativity we are experiencing. But in our efforts to get to the end, to “go outside and play” we allow that negative thinking and energy to impact our work. We rush through, not really getting to the root of the problem, only focusing on what it is we want.

We often let the stinking thinking get the best of us. While we are preparing to perform our magick, we’re thinking “Well this probably won’t work anyway but let’s give it a shot.” And even if we are not thinking that way and do truly believe it will work, the negativity that is surrounding us will consume our work and prevent positive results from occurring.

Don’t get me wrong. I am only human myself and can totally understand that sometimes thinking positive is hard! When the chips are down and it seems like nothing can go right, it is hard to see the good among the bad. It is hard to focus on the positive, when everything around you seems negative. But, I am here to tell you it can be done and it is essential to making life better. In every situation in life, there is the proverbial silver lining. We must open our eyes to that silver lining, and see it for what it is.

Magick is a very powerful thing but it is not a band-aid that can fix all of your problems. While it can certainly help, you must be in the right frame of mind for it to work. Remaining positive isn’t always easy, but I’m sure you can all agree that you feel much better when not riddled with negativity. Do not let stinking thinking get the best of you. Cast that negativity out and be positive. Not only will it make you a much happier person, but it will provide you with far better results from everything in your life.

Brightest Blessings,

    I fully agree that positivity certainly helps I have experienced both. Full positive and ‘lets clean the room n go out n play’ the doubtful situation I can vouch that it works. but despite knowing this in some cases I find it difficult to be positive always.

    It is certainly one of the hardest thing to be able to manage all the time, positive thinkings, it’s sure is, it takes a lot of presence and concentration to manage this as a second nature, but it takes time to be able to succed in something that’s worth it and that I believe in also. I like the way you bring this up either, :) love and light to you.

    Dear Rose
    You are right about positive energy is hard to maintain when you are around so much negativity especially of others that don’t take part in the craft. Everybody needs to find a way of destroying or repelling negative energy no matter where it comes from before it even gets close and their success will be on the way.Positive energy is what I and everyone needs. You are right I experience the most difficult times because of negative energy tying to come back. I will find an easy way and that is to find what works for me to keep them at bay. Thank you Rose for this important information I needed it.
