A negative thought came to my mind
We wore a charming smile
And I was sorely tempted
To invite him in a while
And as I hesitated
He tapped softly on the door
Whispered through the keyhole
As he’s often done before
He said “I’ll help you hold your grudge,
I’ll help you sing the blues
It seems like all your folks and friends
Have turned their backs on you”.
He said “you’ve been misunderstood, mistreated and maligned
I’ll help you cry your heart out if you’ll let me come inside”
But I kept my windows fastened
And my door securely closed
For I knew I’d be the loser
If I let him take control
For negative thoughts can multiply
and drown the positives out
And make the mind a cess pool
Of anxiety and doubt
And so I told the negative thought
That I would not let him in
He went his way but I am sure
That he’ll return again
But no more will I greet him
With a welcome or a smile
And never will entertain him
Even for a while
I’ll fill my heart with positive thoughts
And on the door install
A sign which reads ‘do not disturb’
When negative comes to call
For though he knocks a thousand times
and yet a thousand more
He cannot dominate my mind
If I don’t open the door

You can watch this week’s video here where I talk about how I found this poem in a little Sikh or Hindu magazine. It’s amazing where you can find evidence of the law of attraction and it’s in almost every religion.
That got me thinking about prayer and how people swear by the power of it. Really prayer is just asking a higher power for what you want or need in your life. Christians ask Jesus, we ask The Universe.
Sometimes the most effective solutions are the simplest solutions, and if you are finding blocking negative thoughts difficult simply look at where they breed and grow. For me they are:
- Social networking sites
- Lots of free time
- Not leaving the house
So for me the simple solutions are to delete my social apps for a few days at a time, get BUSY with work, creative projects, fitness, cooking, craft, ANYTHING and making sure I get out the house enough (this is because I primarily work from home).
Make a list of where and when your negative thoughts begin to creep in and tackle those areas.
I would love to hear any other examples of the law of attraction within religions, please do leave me any comments below.

Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and pull you down.
