We think up to 75,000 random thoughts a day. I know, with some people it's hard to believe they're even thinking but according to science from 25,000 to 75,00 thoughts flash through our brain and most are negative. Holy Moly! NASTY THOUGHTS! And scientific studies confirm what we metaphysicians have said, "Your negative thoughts poison your body." 

What those crummy, harmful negative thoughts do while jogging around your brain.

Some studies say: Fear-provoking words—like poverty, illness, and death—also stimulate the brain in negative ways.  And even if these fearful thoughts are not real, other parts of your brain (like the thalamus and amygdala) react to negative fantasies as though they were actual threats occurring in the outside world. Curiously, we seem to be hardwired to worry—perhaps an artifact of old memories carried over from ancestral times when there were countless threats to our survival. 

 According to neuroscientists, Andrew Newberg and Mark Robert Waldman, who’ve done extensive study on the brain and wrote a book on their studies titled, Words Can Change Your Brainin 2014, negative words create traffic jams in the brain: “A single negative word can increase the activity in the fear center of the brain and release dozen of stress-producing hormones and neurotransmitters which in turn interrupts our brain’s functioning especially with regard to logic, reason and language. Angry words send alarm messages through the brain and they partially shut down the logic/reasoning centers.” 

I say, DANG! All that goes on in my brain? Did you see the animated film, Inside Out? It's truly an amazing view at the brain. Check it out.

Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross psychiatrist  and author of Death and Dying says: There are only two emotions: love and fear. All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear. From love flows happiness, contentment, peace, and joy. From fear comes anger, hate, anxiety and guilt. It's true that there are only two primary emotions, love and fear. But it's more accurate to say that there is only love or fear, for we cannot feel these two emotions together, at exactly the same time. They're opposites. If we're in fear, we are not in a place of love. When we're in a place of love, we cannot be in a place of fear.” 

Not new revelations about jumpy negative thoughts:
Buddha showed his students how to meditate in order to tame the drunken monkeys in their minds. It’s useless to fight with the monkeys or to try to banish them from your mind because, as we all know, that which you resist persists. Instead, Buddha said, if you will spend some time each day in quiet meditation — simply calm your mind by focusing on your breathing or a simple mantra — you can, over time, tame the monkeys. They will grow more peaceful if you lovingly bring them into submission with a consistent practice of meditation.
You can reverse your thoughts. At first and sometimes later, it isn't easy so start simply by repeating a positive word (pick one): love, peace, serenity, refresh, play, laughter and you'll experience a shift if you keep on it.
Choose your thoughts wisely - speak words to encourage health and well-being. Anger and fear will wear you down, make life seem longer and eventually destroy all you wish to bring you peace and joy, love and light.
