Do I focus on the positive aspects in life? How I can focus on the light, even in the dark and challenging times?

The Positive Mind, the third of the ten bodies, is also known as the expansive and projective mind. It sees life through the “glass half-full.” It is hopeful, optimistic, creative, and playful. It seeks the bright side of things and is open to new opportunities.

People with a balanced Positive Mind have a well-developed sense of humor. Their infectious joy and optimism can elevate and inspire those around them. They can see the positive in any situation along with positive solutions. They are caring and nurturing. You can usually sense those with a strong Positive Mind by their magnetic energy, attracting life like a candle in the darkness.

When the Positive Mind is out of balance, weak, or underdeveloped, you may become unable to consider risks or overly positive to the point of delusion. You can become reckless, unprepared, gullible, or easily influenced. You may make foolish choices or become overwhelmed with negative thoughts which can lead to depression, anger, or intolerance. A person with a strong, balanced Positive Mind is charismatic, humble, optimistic, and wise.

Ways to Master the Positive Mind

Positive Affirmations

The Positive Mind can be strengthened with the use of positive affirmations. To create your personal positive affirmations, calm your mind with meditation and let your inner wisdom guide you so that your affirmations are directly related to things you want to work on. You may find that journaling will help you write clear, powerful affirmations. Listening to a recording of your affirmations in your own voice is also effective.

Here are some examples of positive affirmations that may help you strengthen your Positive Mind:

1.    I step into my strength and power.

2.    I confidently welcome new experiences.

3.    I am motivated, persistent, and successful.

4.    I am pure, positive energy.

5.    I hold the key to my own happiness.

Sunrise Chanting at Summer Solstice by Snatam Kaur

Every year yogis gather in the foothills of the Jemez Mountains in Northern New Mexico for an event called Summer Solstice. I have been attending this gathering since about the age of two. Although it wasn't until I was about six that it was held in today's location. 

It was at this early age that my spirit began to dance in the wind through the high desert trees; that I fell in love with the smell of the earth after a rain; that my understanding of beauty expanded beyond anything I could ever imagine as the sunsets painted pictures of grandeur and wonder across the sky; and then as I dared to dream when the night sky allowed the stars to shine so bright I would forget all of my worries. Then it was only in the morning as we sat chanting with over a thousand yogis with the sun rising above us that I did not want anything anymore...I was totally and completely satisfied.
