Don’t imagine a pink elephant

Can you notice the difference between the two following sentences?

  1. “Don’t imagine a pink elephant.”
  2. “Imagine a pink elephant.”

Logically speaking, the first sentence is the negation of the second sentence.

But I bet that, as soon as you read the first sentence, your mind just ignored the negative instruction and made you imagine a pink elephant even before reaching the second sentence, right?

Why does our mind work like this?

Our mind is unable to understand negative sentences, so words like “no” or “don’t” are just ignored, and we end up interpreting the sentences just skipping the negative part, more often than we are aware of.

Instead of focusing on a sentence with the negative part, we should always look for a sentence where the negative part is removed and then we can directly express what we would like to express, in a concise and clear way.

Is better to say:

“I only accept positive interferences in my life.”

Than saying:

“I don’t accept negative interferences in my life.”

Can you notice the difference?

Your mind will read the sentence with the negation form and interpret it like “I accept negative interferences in my life”. This is how your subconscious mind will understand the sentence, and this is what The Universe, by the Law of Attraction, will manifest in your own reality.

Be wise and learn how to properly manifest your own intention.

Since you are learning to be a Co-Creator of your own Reality, is good to pay attention to the nuances.
