I went to visit my god father in Ifa/Orisha tonight, because in our traditional belief we check Ifa (Orunmilas Oracle), every five days, since we are under Ile Ife….to see what energy is passing through our lives and what does it bring. I have been going through some emotional things these few weeks and my hormones has been out of whack. After checking my head, and getting the results, my godfather and I began to reason. I told him about the things that had been bothering me and I was not being my usual self. I was down because there were decisions that I had to make that I did not want to. My responses made my godfather reproach me and he said..”Obara Meji, I do not ever want you to say the words can’t in my presence ever again, I will not have it!!. You are an Initiate and a metaphysician, and as such you ought to know better, don’t you know about THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING!!!”.
I knew that what he said was true, and as my elder I had to sit quietly and take the chastisement because I knew he gave it with love.
 THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING!!!..This is one of the greatest lesson for a human being to learn. Although hard at times, It works. I know that there are times when we all just want to wallow in self-pity, when we just want to be down and miserable, and at times we resent those who wants to be all POSITIVE, when all we can see before us is gloom, and that is exactly where we want to be at the time, because in our minds when we are experiencing this, nothing has been working and so God is too busy and has no time for us. I have been down that road a thousand times, yet I am the one to give people who come to see me hope, but human nature can hardly be denied. As with everything in life we have to put an effort in whatever we want to achieve, and positive thoughts when we are down is one.
I left my godfathers house and while I drove home I thought about my life growing up. I thought about how my mother put me out of the house when I became a teenage mother. I remember when she told me that I had to leave soon after the baby was born, I held up my head and went to search for help, and I found it. I never cried or resented her, I just did what I had to do without thought. I was not bitter or angry, I KNEW that things would work out for me, so I pushed forward and they did. As a matter of fact now that he got me thinking that has always been how I lived my life, I always KNEW everything would be alright, and they always were. I practiced positive thinking without even knowing that I did and my life growing up, even though I never had the love of family was good. God the supreme being of our existence operates in light. Whatever is shrouded in darkness can be removed through the power of the mind!. Disease will never see the light of day if only human being use their power which is POSITIVE THOUGHT, to blow it to obscurity.
When all the problems of the world comes at you, use you mind to change it!!. It is possible!!!…everything and all things are subject to change!!. all problems has a solution. If you are around people who do not want to empower their thoughts with positive thinking leave from their environment, because they will drag you down with their thoughts!!!…the energy that they are creating is toxic, and therefore you cannot afford to be in that space….
We should all set aside a time for us to meditate each day. We should focus on all things positive, even for just five minutes, and see how much our lives changes. We should keep up the positive thoughts all the time, and when things comes at us to dampen our spirits, try to focus and remember that all problems has a solution, ALL!!…there is nothing that God cannot do, absolutely nothing but we have to believe, we just have to!!…I will be doing a post real soon on meditation, the proper way to do it.
The Power of Positive Thinking
By Remez Sasson
Positive thinking is a mental attitude that admits into the mind thoughts, words and images that are conductive to growth, expansion and success. It is a mental attitude that expects good and favorable results. A positive mind anticipates happiness, joy, health and a successful outcome of every situation and action.Whatever the mind expects, it finds.Not everyone accepts or believes in positive thinking. Some consider the subject as just nonsense, and others scoff at people who believe and accept it. Among the people who accept it, not many know how to use it effectively to get results. Yet, it seems that many are becoming attracted to this subject, as evidenced by the many books, lectures and courses about it. This is a subject that is gaining popularity.It is quite common to hear people say: “Think positive!”, to someone who feels down and worried. Most people do not take these words seriously, as they do not know what they really mean, or do not consider them as useful and effective. How many people do you know, who stop to think what the power of positive thinking means? The following story illustrates how this power works:
Allan applied for a new job, but as his self-esteem was low, and he considered himself as a failure and unworthy of success, he was sure that he was not going to get the job. He had a negative attitude towards himself, and believed that the other applicants were better and more qualified than him. Allan manifested this attitude, due to his negative past experiences with job interviews.His mind was filled with negative thoughts and fears concerning the job for the whole week before the job interview. He was sure he would be rejected. On the day of the interview he got up late, and to his horror he discovered that the shirt he had planned to wear was dirty, and the other one needed ironing. As it was already too late, he went out wearing a shirt full of wrinkles.During the interview he was tense, displayed a negative attitude, worried about his shirt, and felt hungry because he did not have enough time to eat breakfast. All this distracted his mind and made it difficult for him to focus on the interview. His overall behavior made a bad impression, and consequently he materialized his fear and did not get the job.Jim applied for the same job too, but approached the matter in a different way. He was sure that he was going to get the job. During the week preceding the interview he often visualized himself making a good impression and getting the job.In the evening before the interview he prepared the clothes he was going to wear, and went to sleep a little earlier. On day of the interview he woke up earlier than usual, and had ample time to eat breakfast, and then to arrive to the interview before the scheduled time.He got the job because he made a good impression. He had also of course, the proper qualifications for the job, but so had Allan.What do we learn from these two stories? Is there any magic employed here? No, it is all natural. When the attitude is positive we entertain pleasant feelings and constructive images, and see in our mind’s eye what we really want to happen. This brings brightness to the eyes, more energy and happiness. The whole being broadcasts good will, happiness and success. Even the health is affected in a beneficial way. We walk tall and the voice is more powerful. Our body language shows the way you feel inside.

Positive and negative thinking are both contagious.
All of us affect, in one way or another, the people we meet. This happens instinctively and on a subconscious level, through thoughts and feelings transference, and through body language. People sense our aura and are affected by our thoughts, and vice versa. Is it any wonder that we want to be around positive people and avoid negative ones? People are more disposed to help us if we are positive, and they dislike and avoid anyone broadcasting negativity.

Negative thoughts, words and attitude bring up negative and unhappy moods and actions. When the mind is negative, poisons are released into the blood, which cause more unhappiness and negativity. This is the way to failure, frustration and disappointment.
