Matthew Ward paints a fairly vivid picture of the difference in experience when one comes from a negative outlook and a positive outlook.
“Receiving light is as simple as living a ‘good life.’ Being kind, caring, honorable, trustworthy, truthful, helpful, joyful, generous, hopeful, compassionate, cheerful, optimistic, pleasant and having an open mind – the positive emotions and characteristics that make life meaningful and fulfilling – carry the high vibrations of light.
“At soul level you know this – think about your expressions ‘feeling lighthearted,’ ‘the light of my life’ and ‘seeing the light’ that connote uplifted feelings or an Aha! moment.” (1)
That’s the good news. And now the bad news.
“Conversely, greed, ruthlessness, oppression, corruption, brutality, deception, betrayal of trust, unjustness, lack of forgiveness and lust for power emanate very low vibrations.
“Negative emotions that emit low vibrations include fear, guilt, remorse, self-doubt, jealousy, envy, bitterness and resentment, all of which create discomfort, discord and dissatisfaction.” (2)
Of these the paramount agent of negativity is, apparently, fear.
“By far the most powerful of negative feelings is fear, a highly-magnified energy attachment, and that is why time and again we have urged you never to fear anything.
“Not only do fearful individuals attract more circumstances to feel fearful about, but the energy of fear is the dark ones’ greatest tool – it feeds their ambitions and strengthens their domination over you. When you live steadfast in the light, there is nothing to fear! Nothing of dark nature can survive within the light!” (3)
Fear throws a person off-balance and causes extreme reactions. Matthew advises:
“We have stated repeatedly that balance is a prerequisite for evolving into higher densities and fear is a serious deterrent to achieving balance. …
“We … urge everyone not to go into fear about any situation at hand or forecast. Not only does fear have the power to delay soul evolvement and create adverse personal circumstances, it is a painful feeling. How much more valuable, sensible and joyful it is to live fearlessly!” (4)
According to him, it ordinarily takes a long time of evolution to make the shift from a negative outlook to a positive:
“To achieve the balanced experiencing necessary for spiritual growth, a soul may spend hundreds or more lifetimes evolving out of duality’s negative potential into the positive end of the spectrum, where the energy of love, peace, generosity, harmony, honor and kindness prevails.” (5)
However the acceleration of this end-time will assist us to make the jump.
“In this unique time in the universe when all experiencing is being accelerated, souls have been given the unprecedented opportunity to evolve out of third density’s low vibrations and physically accompany Earth into higher energy planes.” (6)
Nothing of a dark nature can live in the light with us if we let go of fear. That is so helpful to know.
In moving from negativity to positivity, in letting go of fear and embracing love, I’m aware that I’m in effect reparenting myself.
