The fallacy of, ‘positive thinking’.


‘The fallacy of positive thinking’, is just THAT. A fallacy. You think that living a happy life, and changing your entire belief pattern system, is as simple as simply, ‘thinking positive?’ Hah, my friend, if you believe this, then you have clearly never suffered from depression, or any other type of debilitating mood disorder.
Telling somebody to simply think positive, when they have absolutely not an inch of hope running through their bones, is likely to cause them further trauma, and frustration, as their efforts, continuously try, and fail. This is asking somebody to adopt falsity, which feels even more painful, and uncomfortable, particularly to the empath.
Somebody who has a mood disorder, or is chemically imbalanced, possesses a mind that lacks some of the vital ingredients for a revitalised world vision, and positive thought stream. Such as irregularity of serotonin, and oxytocin production. 
Positive thinking’ alone, will not change their make-up. The only thing that will, is positive action.

When you are chemically imbalanced, it is more than likely your brain was forced into harsh development by traumatic external circumstances, such as an abusive home, or deprived family life. This is not something that you can brush under carpets, or sweep away neatly under the guise of, ‘positive thinking’.
It is the way in which your mind is constructed that seeks change. Not the things within your mind..

So, how do you do it? How do you change the make-up of your mind? Well, this requires a few things – one being conscious effort..
You must begin realistically, which positivity does not always provide room for. Thoughts such as, ‘ I am happy today’, may be replaced with, ‘today I am alive, and I am well, therefore, I have the opportunity to create a better day than yesterday’.. This is not false-hood. Rather than stating that one is happy, when one is not, one states that their current condition is stable, but they recognise that it can indeed improve throughout the duration of the day, offering both possibility, and flexibility.
Denying your emotions in search of feigned, ‘positivity’, is a disastrously ineffective new age concept, and puts many off the path of spirituality altogether.

From a very early age, it was clear to see that my path was one paved with difference. Inspiration, intuition, and imagination gripped me long before I could find my feet. I walk the life path of 7, so I am irreversibly bound to the realm of mysticism, spiritualism, and esotericism. I do not belong to this world, for I am a 'tween', always in between worlds. I am the commander of serpents, belonging to the glorious, and forbidden 13th zodiac of ophiuchus. Hidden in secrecy, to one day return as the divine feminine awakens. Love, is my speciality, and has governed my existence. I now use a combination of intuition, natural healing ability, astrology, psychology, sociology, and numerology to bring clarity, healing, and understanding to all. With the energy of ophiuchus running through me, I could never turn away from the path of healing, nor teaching. Not only does ophiuchus represent healing, but also the crevices of the dark shadows that we must crawl through to find our path to healing, in other words, the shamanic process of death, and re-birth, which has pretty much been the summation of my existence thus far. Long gone are my days of depression, I have re-claimed my divinity, and I desire nothing more than to help you to also claim yours. Not only the seeker, I am also the lover. Part of the many trials that I have endured upon this empathic journey, are that of heart break, and abandonment consciousness. For this reason, I have become an advocate for healthy loving relationships, and the harmony between the two sexes. This has taken me on a deep quest, to uncover ancient old secrets, and deeply entrenched beliefs, about man, about woman, and what this reads about where we are to. My eternal life drive and motto revolves around this simple theory, 'Where there is an outcome, there has existed a cause'. My particular areas of interest and expertise lie with sociology, psychology, spiritualism, philosophy, and literary, and creative writing. As I have a deeply intense desire to both serve, and aid humanity, I have naturally been drawn toward topics that have provided me with a more in depth account of societal behaviour, and as it stands, human kind. My roots are as deeply rooted as they can be, stemming from Ghanaian parents, who were raised, and both skilled in the art, and knowledge of superstition, and divination wisdom, it is no surprise that the blood flowing through my veins compels me to do such work, so relentlessly. Unlike other bloggers, this work featured here is not a mere hobby, it is more than just my livelihood, it is the calling of which i cannot ignore. Another prominent focus of mine, is mental illness. Not comfortable, nor fully sold with the western idealisms of the implications of such, i seek research, personal experience, and observation to prove, that many mental illnesses hold spiritual connotation, particularly as the mind is an avid translator of spiritual energies. Follow me on this journey as i discover myself, retrace my roots, fall deeply in love with my heritage, and finally accept my awkward, unorthodox societal position.
