The Power of Positive Communication

power of positive communication
Cosmic Faery Tarot Deck
Recently I have noticed, how quickly people fall into the trap of negative communication. It all starts with a little whine, but then it doesn't stop. This can happen among family and friends but also on social media.

Constant complaining, whinging, gossiping, expressing anger, frustration, bitterness, resentment, outpouring of problems and dramas.... The Queen of Swords on a bad day that never ends!

Are you one of these people?

I was once in a relationship, in which I became the go-to counsellor and found myself in a position of having to listen virtually non-stop to all the problems he kept having.

That relationship became so draining that I was totally relieved when it ended.

Don't fall into the trap of perpetual negativity when interacting with others.

On an unconscious level, it also drags you down emotionally while you keep talking yourself into a perpetual state of dissatisfaction.

And the longer you keep being stuck in this negative pattern, it becomes a habit that will be hard to shift.

At this stage, your vibrational energy may be so low that people begin to avoid hanging out with you.

A quick and easy way to improve your happiness is to communicate more positively thus raising your vibrations for the benefit of all.

You may have forgotten how to do this, so here are some ideas:

1. What has inspired you recently?
Talk about what has made you feel good, such as a great book, TV show, experience, a person, a trip.... anything that has made you forget about all your woes and crappiness in the world.

2. What are you grateful for today?
Yes, the usual gratitude exercise. It does work.

3. When thinking or talking about a person you dislike (e.g. a co-worker), what are their positive traits?
If you can't say anything positive, then try not say anything at all.

4. What happened recently that was funny?
Even better, if it involves you. Share a joke. Don't take yourself too seriously. Laughter is often the best medicine.

5. How can you help and encourage others to overcome their issues?
Take time to listen and show a genuine interest to be present for others when they need your support.

Shifting towards positive communication doesn't mean you have to ignore all the things that concern you, but don't let them consume you either.

Warmest wishes,

  1. So true! "the usual gratitude exercise" Lately I have been feeling the need to return to this practice. Your other points are inspiring too. I will remember them for sure!

    1. We all fall into the negativity trap sometimes without being aware of it until we take a mindful look at ourselves :D I'm guilty of it, too! What helped me recently was spending time with the right people and reading some inspirational books. Things like that really help.

  2. Agree completely. People accuse me of "denying the existence of negativity", but that's not what it's about at all. You can acknowledge your negative feelings and deal with them, but you *choose* what to share with others. Having a bit of a whine/vent with your best friend, or indeed your partner, can be a relief, but in moderation - otherwise it'll poison all communication between you.

    1. Yes, focusing on positive communication doesn't mean you're not acknowledging the negative, but there is the right time, place and people you can share it with. People tend to be more negative anyway, so it's always a good idea to be mindful about keeping it balanced. For everything negative you think or say, counteract it with three positive things, or even five. This can also help you to avoid harmful negative self-talk. :)
