Negativity
I have a choice. I can be negative or I can be positive. It is up to me. When I feel negative I need to stop & force myself to recognize my blessings.

I like this one because I feel it is something I can do that I never thought of before.
I have the tools I need and now I know how to use one. I’m feeling confident

I noticed that the things that he had me worrying about were only things that he believed. I shouldn’t believe them about myself because they’re not true.

Funny
I actually started to laugh while doing this meditation. I’ll keep this gem with me and remember to activate it to move through negativity. Thanks Aura!

Different Take
Cassandra teaches a new technique to use when you have negative thoughts. It is quite amusing actually. I began thinking of the cartoon character, Scooby-Doo and all of the sudden, I found myself having a smile on my face. I need to remember that these negative thoughts do not define me. Being self critical and judgmental towards myself does not and will not help me. I will remember Cassandra’s technique on defusing negative thoughts. I invite anyone who is having negative thoughts to give this meditation a listen to get a different take on defusing those pesky negative thoughts. Namaste! 🙏🏻❤️

Tried it.
Today’s issues are not internal, so Cassandra’s idea of forcing negative thoughts into the voice of a comedian or character aren't working for me! Rather, on this second full day of summer vacation, we've already RUNINED an 11y/o’s summer! Youngest child, Ariel, wants to go to the community pool with friends, or barring that, to be driven an hour north to a local water park, completely out of our budget today, AND I FINALLY have a long-awaited and often-cancelled dental appointment this morning anyway! I HATE summer vacation now. Remember as kids the total anticipation? The imagined joy? Yeah, as an adult with kids, not so much!😡

Laughing...
What a great idea! I have been having some challenges lately that I have allowed to get in my head and cause me to be less positive than I like to be, so this was good timing - Thanks Cherish for suggesting this. I saw Daffy Duck trying to sputter thru telling everyone how bad things were and I had to laugh. I took each issue I had and let him tell me about it and laughed thru them all and now I really do not have any serious issues! (Well... that’s my opinion anyway) Laughter really is the Best medicine! ❤️😂🍀

This is fun
The cartoon character that came to mind for me was Fred Flintstone. It is pretty hard to imagine Fred whining about negative things. I just couldn’t do it. It made me smile. Yabba dabba doo.😎

Positive thinking
I learned that I need to make less serious thoughts. I could replace negative thoughts with a comedians or cartoons voice instead of my own to make it less serious and stressful.

I noticed...
That she used the reference of our favorite comedian or cartoon character to help think less of our negative thoughts. I’ve never thought of it like that before. And I’ve had so many different people tell me to think this way or that way. But never this. It really spoke to me and helped me learn that my thoughts don’t make me who i am. Thank you.

Great technique
I learned this is a great technique to defeat your negative thoughts before they progressively take over your mind.
