Bless The Situation
Last year, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since she has emphysema and is on oxygen, I was concerned about her coming through the treatments. I decided to transform my concern into an affirmation that something wonderful would come out of this for her that would somehow improve her overall quality of life, but I had no idea how that could possibly happen. She breezed through the surgery, with the anesthesiologist saying her heart was strong. That was something good. The cancer was small and hadn't spread. That also was something good.
As the health care workers were taking the CATScan to set her up for radiation, they discovered that her thyroid, which was hyperactive, was compressing her windpipe to less than 50% of normal. It was like she was breathing through a straw. That was fantastic news, believe it or not. It meant that something could be done to improve her breathing.
When something that looks "bad" happens, bless it and affirm that something wonderful is going to come from it. People who have lost jobs have done this, and manifested a better job. A relationship coming to an end can open a door to a better one. Choose not to wallow in anxiety, worry, or concern about the possible negative consequences of the "loss." Instead, concentrate on something better coming as a result of the event. By doing so, you're actually giving your subconscious mind directions to actually find something good.
Whatever you give your attention to is a command to the subconscious to manifest more of that. As Universal Mind flows through your subconscious, this gives your creative mind infinite knowledge and resources to discover something good. Don't try to figure out how it could possibly happen, that's the function of your inner mind. And don't try to determine what the benefit could be, that's also the job for your subconscious.
There obviously was a reason for the unpleasant experience. Maybe you outgrew that job, but were reluctant to let it go. Every so-called "negative" condition is created of the same Universal energy that "positive" situations are formed from. But you have to set your creative mind to work to uncover what good can come from the circumstances. So bless the situation, and affirm to yourself that something wonderful is going to occur as a result of it. By doing so, you're instructing your subconscious to reveal the goodness of the Infinite that animates every person, place, and condition.
You can do this for personal experiences or for more global situations. I've done this for years for myself and others, and for social problems and world issues. Since we're all connected in Universal Mind, the more people who bless any planetary conflict, the more we're focusing on a positive solution and the benefits that can be found from it. It may seem counter-intuitive to look for the blessing, but that's the only way we can turn a "negative" into a "positive."
If it hadn't been for my mother's cancer, we probably never would have discovered a major cause of her breathing difficulties. It took months before she had surgery, but afterwards she was able to take a deep breath for the first time in years. Something wonderful came out of what could have been something awful.
