As part of this series on finances and how to change unwanted patterns, I realized we could make solid progress by addressing negative thought forms that get in the way of attracting money. If you’re not familiar with thought forms, they’re near-solid objects in our energy fields that we create by repeating thoughts and beliefs over and over until they manifest in the outer world.
When these self-fulfilling prophecies come true, they’re reinforced–“See, I was right!” Ultimately, they lodge in what’s called the causal body–an outer layer of the energy field that attracts people, situations, and events into our lives.
I started to write a post about thought forms, but then remembered several I wrote in the early days of Skywriter, when I was lucky if I had 10 subscribers who weren’t blood relatives or close friends. Most of you are new to this blog and haven’t seen that series, so I’m reprinting this introduction to thought forms with a few new ideas about how you can apply it to persistent money difficulties.
What I began to see when Pluto entered Capricorn for a 14-year stay is that we all need to address the negative thought forms that hold us back now so that they don’t crystallize into a solid brick wall. We can, of course, create positive thought forms through repetitive positive thoughts and beliefs, and that’s part of what sustains us when we meet obstacles.
In the absence of negative thought forms, positive thinking can have remarkable results. In areas where we’re blocked, however, many of us have thunk positive thoughts until we’re blue in the face without results. We’ve visualized, we’ve affirmed, we’ve chanted, and we’ve written abundance checks until we had to order new checkbooks, but nothing budges, and we’re left feeling like metaphysical morons.
If so, you aren’t among the metaphysically challenged, it’s just that most of these teachings start in the middle rather than at the very beginning. In order to change a negative reality, you need to go back a step. The first stage in upping your manifestation quotient is to identify and nullify negative thought forms. Listen to your own thoughts about key areas of your life where you’ve been blocked–they’re the very opposite of hopeful. They’re thoughts like these:
- “I’ll never be able to find a job I like.”
- “I’ll always be broke”
- “I’ll never get out of debt.”
- “People only want me for what I give them.”
- “I’ll never find someone who loves me for myself.”
And so on–listen to your own thoughts about those stuck areas. They’ll seem familiar. You may have been wearing them into a groove for years, even for most of your life.
Or maybe you’ve had a bad setback a while ago, and you’ve lost confidence. (For setbacks, try the Bach flower essence Gentian, available at most health food stores.)
When repeated enough times, they crystallize into negative thought forms that keep on attracting failure, rejection, or toxic people and situations into your life. Each time a self-fulfilling prophecy occurs, the thought form grows more solid.
Capricorn is the sign of building structures and realizing long-term goals by consistent, disciplined focus and practical actions. Work now to identify places in your life that you’re stuck, like changing your financial patterns.
Listen to your thoughts about that area and let your ears perk up when you hear words like “never” or “always.” When you find a familiar thought or set of thoughts that represent a deal breaker for your goals, imagine that you’re putting feelers out into your energy field–that thought may have solidified into a thought form.
There are links below to more articles about thought forms and how to address them below but ultimately you’re the expert in how to demolish your own. After all, you built them!! Make up a method. Maybe you aim an ultraviolet ray gun at it, maybe your angel carries it away, maybe a rocket ship blows it into the sun, or maybe your favorite superhero blasts it to smithereens. In this interval of heightened healing and manifestation powers, seize the day and clear unwanted thought forms out of your life.
