“Every negative emotion, no matter how strong or mild it is, means you are pointed in the opposite direction of what you are wanting.” —Abraham

“No matter how justified you are in your negative emotion, you are still messing up your future.” —Abraham

“When you understand the value of contrast, then you don’t leave your Inner Being who always understands the value of contrast. So then contrast doesn’t feel like negative emotion. It doesn’t feel like defeat, it feels like opportunity. It doesn’t feel like confusion, it feels like clarity. It doesn’t feel like something’s gone wrong, it feels like everything is going right.” —Abraham

“It is not wrong or bad to have negative emotion any more than it’s wrong to have senses in your hands that tell you the stove is hot.” —Abraham

“Are you under the misimpression that negative emotion is a bad thing? Negative emotion is not a bad thing. Negative emotion is guidance to help you redirect and refocus. It’s all part of the dance.” —Abraham

“In every case, negative emotion means you’re turned away from what you want. It doesn’t meant something bad is going to happen and you’re being warned. It means you’re turned away from what you want. It doesn’t mean you are unworthy and aren’t going to get what you want. It means you’re turned away from what you want. It doesn’t mean you should have done something earlier in this life in a different way or in a past life. It doesn’t mean you needed a blessing from someone outside of you. It means you’re turned away from what you want.” —Abraham

“We encourage you, very strongly, not to beat up on yourself when you recognize that you are feeling negative emotion. But as soon as you can, stop and say, ‘I’m feeling some negative emotion. Which means that I’m in the process of attracting what I don’t want. What is it that I do want?’” —Abraham

“As you try to explain why you are feeling negative emotion, you are adding power to it. Release the negative emotion, the negative feeling, and the negative attraction—by taking your attention from it.” —Abraham

“How do you feel about those things that you are giving most of your attention to? If there is something in your life that gives you negative emotion almost every time you think about it, we would do anything that we could do to get that negative thing out of our awareness.” —Abraham

“When you find yourself feeling negative emotion of any kind, no matter how negative it is, say to yourself…Go general, go general, GO GENERAL! Because the more general you are, the less resistant you will be. You can say things like: ‘This too shall pass.’ ‘All in all things are going pretty well for me.’ ‘All is well for me.’ ‘Everything will work out.’” —Abraham

“Negative emotion is your best friend because it’s telling you in the moment that you’re heading in opposition to what you want, that you are creating your reality by default.” —Abraham
