Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks
If you’re needing help in any way
To keep yourself positive
Reach for a thought that feels better
Is the best advice anyone can give
No matter how you are feeling
Whether angry, depressed or lost
Reaching for a better thought
Brings relief at no great cost
Even if from depressed to angry
Is the step you need to take
As long as you don’t stay in anger too long
You’ll feel better with each step you make
Always reaching for a better thought
Is a wonderful habit to pursue
You will raise your vibration incrementally
And create a blissful, beautiful you

About This Poem
Years ago I quite often felt upset about so many things, my tears of sadness could easily flow, especially if I was alone and dwelling on negative things. But when I began to understand and use the teachings from Abraham-Hicks I noticed that I was feeling much happier about everything. I didn’t really appreciate how different I felt until I suddenly realized that I hadn’t really cried at all for many years, just the odd tear drop from joy or compassion for others. This quote has been one of the most helpful in changing my whole attitude and perspective on life.
Nowadays I rarely have to think about ‘Reaching For A Thought That Feels Better‘ as I now naturally don’t dwell on anything I find negative, but a couple of days ago I did have the old experience of feeling sad and helpless. It came out of the blue and because this hadn’t happened in many years I began to think about it more, and then I felt myself sinking and getting sadder, I knew I shouldn’t dwell so I tried not to think about it, but of course that didn’t work! Then I remembered this quote and changed my thoughts to something a little better and put on some uplifting music. This helped a lot but I still didn’t feel my usual self, so I then took my mind totally away from thinking by watching a comedy and by the time it was finished I felt so much better. After that there was no negativity when I thought about the whole aspect of that experience. I now see this as a positive reinforcement of my power to change how I feel.
Although, writing this now another interesting thing has come to my mind…
I now have a much smaller list of my old poems to add to this blog and (unless I’ve written something new) with what I have left I’m finding it not so easy to complete the ‘About This Poem’ part of each post. So, today when I looked through which poem to add (I had nothing new) this one really jumped out at me with the significance of my recent experience!
So, I now have to ask myself, did I (my Higher-Self) create this flash-back to bring myself this clarity? And ultimately words for this post!!!
