“Individuals can go from psychologist to psychologist, from self-therapy to self-therapy, always with the same question: ‘What is wrong?’ The question itself becomes a format through which experience is seen, and itself represents one of the main reasons for all limitations, physical, psychic or spiritual. . . .
“At one point or another the individual ceased concentrating upon what was right in certain personal areas, and began to focus upon and magnify specific ‘lacks.’ With all good intentions, then, various solutions are looked for, but all based upon the premise that something is wrong.
“If such a practice is continued, the concentration upon negatives can gradually bleed out into other previously unblemished areas of experience.” The Nature of Personal Reality (a Seth Book), by Jane Roberts
Psychotherapy is flawed, as many of us know. The focus on what is wrong accentuates what is wrong in our minds, and thereby spreads it forward into the present and then the future. It also bleeds, as we read here, into previously good areas of our lives, turning even good things into worse experiences.
We need to get the question, “What is wrong?,” out of our minds. This is focusing on the negative, and what we focus on materializes. Focus is everything. When we reframe the problem area into positive words, we are heading into the right track. We are remembering that positive attracts positive, just as negative attracts more negative.
We ought to remember in our day-to-day round what has gone right in our lives. This will, in an almost magical way, bleed into the things in our lives that are brining us dissatisfaction. But this bleeding is in the right direction. We will replace what we have lamented with the happier state of what we really want to be actualized.
