Here’s How Negative Thinking is Changing Your Brain?
Science has proven that both positive and negative thinking has a direct impact on our quality of life.
It’s so direct, in fact, that the relationship between the thoughts we have and the emotional state we live in is a cause and effect system… In most cases (more on that later).
Now before we dive in to how negative thoughts impact us, let’s answer a more fundamental question… Why are humans so prone to negative thinking?
Why It’s so Easy to Be Negative
Believe it or not, there’s actually an evolutionary reason why it’s so easy to slip into negative thought patterns.
Now, I truly believe in learning through experience and examples…
So picture this:
You’re a caveman or cavewoman… It’s dark and there’s a roaring storm, you’re cold, wet and tired.
You stumble upon a perfectly-sized cave you could take shelter in…
Which of the following should be your first thought:
- I can’t wait to stretch my legs by the fire and sleep!
- This is perfect!
- Are there any dangers? Is this a bear’s cave!?
Yep, if you answered “3,” evolution agrees!
As human beings, we have literally evolved to immediately detect possible threats and dangers.
Literally, everything we perceive is passed through a subconscious filter we’re not even remotely aware of.
That filter is there, at its core, to prevent us from acting recklessly or facing danger.
It causes us to feel anxiety, worry, stress fear, and any other form of negative thinking…
Naturally, that subconscious filter was a key aspect of our survival as a species.
It’s important to be grateful it’s there!
However, on the other hand, human technology and society have evolved so quickly that our biology didn’t have time to catch up.
The subconscious filter didn’t really “get with the times,” to say the least.
What ended up happening is that subconscious filter began treating everyday events as threats.
In other words, we’re biologically prone to unnecessary negative thinking.

So we know why negative thinking happens so often…
Now it’s time to ask:
What Does Negative Thinking Do to Your Mind?
Negative thoughts are of an inherently lower vibration than positive thoughts.
It’s only natural that they inhibit our ability to be, well, happy.
The truth is, you can’t just “raise your vibration” instantaneously.
You GET to release negative emotions like stress and anxiety first.
To put it another way; trying to raise your vibration with lingering negative thinking is like trying your hardest to drive a car out of sticky mud.
You’re really going nowhere.
Let’s dig a little deeper and explore what happens inside the brain when we have a negative thought.
On a synaptic level, when you go through negative thinking, neurons fire together, eventually creating a synaptic connection.
In other words, consistently experiencing negative emotions builds a stronger and stronger pattern in your mind.
– Donald Hebb, Psychologist
Neurons that fire together, wire together.
Now that’s not to say you can’t change those connections and rearrange your brain into a more positive system…
The secret is your innate ability to release negativity from your life and open your heart and soul to the wonderful possibilities of reality!

Now, let me explain how this works a little bit…
Meditation allows you to consciously open the door to access your subconscious mind.
This is exactly why affirmation-based guided meditation is so powerful.
When that door to your subconscious is open, your mind is open to fundamental changes in its neuroplastic structure.
Imagine if your negative thoughts were instantly shifted to thoughts of a higher vibration, how would your day change?
How would your emotional state shift?
Now I don’t want to try doing that alone that’s why I can personally recommend this set of guided meditations.
If you ever find yourself going through negative thinking, I truly think you’re going to love this meditation.
Remember, you have a divine gift to be able to attract anything you wish to your life, but you can only do that when you’re consistently in a positive vibration.
Affirmation-Based Meditation is the best way to do that!
I hope you enjoy the guided meditation!
