We all had the experience of going about our business, and then noticing a random negative thought pop into our mind trying to hijack our attention. Often times this negative thought has nothing to do with us, but it tries really hard to make us identify with it so that it can use our energy to survive within our consciousness.
The reason we identify with these negative thoughts is because we are caught off guard while we are being unconscious of our power as the Creator. That’s when these thoughts creep in, and we subtly start to entertain them, identify with them, expand them, and before you know it we find ourselves deep in a dark hole of horrible pain and suffering. Not fun. They are very sticky.
