Questioner: What can we do to avoid negativity?
The Council: Develop spiritually within, inside yourself. Place your entire being in a positive frame of mind at the very beginning of your day, simply by starting your day off with a prayer and committing yourself to a godly existence for that day. That is your first means of protection. But from there you must take a constant watchful eye on each and everything that transpires. It is not an easy task at first, but once you attune yourself to such a day, over a period of time it becomes quite natural and you automatically protect yourself as long as you are willing. You see, it first comes through the inner change and attitude. Make each act of yours an act that you are offering up to your Infinite Father as an act of prayer and each act then that you find yourself engaged in, check and see if it is a godly act, if it is something you wish to offer up to your god or not. You see? Very simple little things like that can help keep your entire day a godly expression, thus eliminating any effects of negativity, at least to the point where it would be detrimental to you.
Questioner: What is the best way to protect ourselves from negativity?
The Council: There are many ways, if you are talking of, shall we say, little gimmicks. There are many ways of doing that. But basically again they are only, shall we say, amplifiers for the mental attitude that must be present, such as protecting yourself with the White Light which is a very strong form, because it necessitates visualization which is a strong tool. The gemstones that we have given you in the past can be a form of protection, but you see, these are all, shall we say, little gimmicks; they are little amplifiers. The real protection comes first in your own mental attitude.
As far as your own beings and protecting yourself, keep yourself attuned to godly ways, and that is your safest means of protection. Use the visualization process of the Light that represents Christ and His protection. Those would be the simplest and most productive. A good foundation in what is godly and what is not as far as knowledge goes is very beneficial. A certain amount of knowledge is good. Then from that knowledge allow your God-given wisdom to put it into practice and to magnify it so that it becomes useful in many areas of your day-to-day existence.
