For example, if someone has a leak in their basement and they think, "At least I'm not homeless." Or some other negative thought that could be worse. The negative words being "not" and "homeless". What would this kind of 'vibrational work' would do to one's manifesting and health? Thanks
Since our focus is what we get, wouldn't we want to say, "At least I have a home," using possitive words?
This question isn't about me, or what should be done. The question is According to the Law of Attraction and health, how would thinking negative thoughts to feel better affect one's health and manifesting? Verses thinking a possitive version?
Here is an opportunity to illustrate exactly how the LOA should be applied.
You look at your leaky basement and envision a basement that is not leaking.
While you are doing this you also try to feel the idea "Thank God for fixing my basement"
You are staring at your LEAKING basement and you are saying "THANK GOD IT IS FIXED"
This is what you DO NOT DO.
DON'T say "Oh God show me how to fix my basement"
While you are holding the vision of "Thank God it is fixed" you will be inspired to call a plumber, call your friend who can fix anything, tell your co-workers about your problem, check the yellow pages etc.
Then you have another problem of "How do I pay for this?"
Now how do you deal with that?
That's right, you use the same technique.
You acknowledge that you cannot pay for it and in-spite of it you say to God, "Thank God for making it possible for me to pay for this expense"
While you hold on to "Thank God for paying this expense”, you explore all the possibilities of payment that God keeps suggesting to you within your consciousness.
This, in essence is the "attitude of gratitude"
The example you have used seems to be positive! - "At least I'm not homeless." This is reassuring yourself that things can only get better. But this also depends on how you are actually feeling while saying this. I have found that if I think good, then after thinking this I come to a state of feeling Good and then I can pass on these feelings to others the same way. LOA Think Good Feel Good and You Will do Good. Mind over matter you will generate good health if you reassure yourself positive thinking and vice versa for negative thought/feelings. I hope this help to get to your real answer that you are looking for!

It seems to me, that getting the feeling is what is important. If you say, "I am beautiful." But down deep you get a feeling that says, "Oh come ON now! You are not beautiful." It doesn't work. The feeling is not there.
I see the Vortex as spinning, like a merry-go-round. In my above remark, it is spinning too fast for you to get aboard. It won't slow down for you. It can't. You have to catch up with it, or you just go BING, out into the bushes. You tried to take too big a step, and you were not ready.
I submit that you may have limiting core beliefs. These slow you down from being able to match the desired vibration.
However you can increase your personal "speed" or raise your vibrations to match. You can begin by saying, "People say that I have nice eyes." And the inside you says, "Yup I have heard people say that." Go on from there.
I think that @traveller has a good point if you remember a time that you consider God did come through for you. This raises your vibration level to be able to more closely match your Vortex vibration level. Then the state of joy you felt when God "fixed" something before can carry you forward.
It is all about feeling. If you are feeling gloomy about your leaking basement, the worst thing you can do is to "work" on this problem! Go find something, anything that you enjoy and do that!
The answer to your problem is close to you anyhow, but it can't show itself to you as long as you are trying to solve the problem!! You always have an answer if you have a problem, and all "problems" are spiritually based!
But you can't see the answer while you are standing in the way of your own light!
You only see jumbled fragments that make no worthwhile sense.
Find Joy feeling. This moves you out of the way and the problem solves itself.
Now @Fairy Princess, you asked if "at least I am not homeless" is a negative thought? Only you can answer that question for your own self. To me it would be a vibration lowering thought.
Consider the difference in feeling if you say,
"I have a beautiful, comfortable home and I love living here!" (don't even think about the basement, God is working on that and will be able to give you the answer when you stop blocking His way with the thought that you have a better idea of how to handle your problems than He does! Or Source, or Universal Mind, or Allah, or Whoever, or Whatever you want to call IT)
or you say, "At least I'm not homeless." Which feels better?
We are not here to renovate a junky situation, but to co-create a WORLD (hear the Power that Creates Worlds) based on your feelings.
In closing, when I find a "problem" that is causing me to begin to struggle, to find a bigger and yet bigger hammer, I first ask myself, "Is there really any reason I MUST do something now?" Usually there is not.
So I walk away and find something fun, forget about the problem. If I can't forget, I find something that is even more fun and let God "fix" it.
I come back to the "problem" refreshed, knowing there is a simple answer -- and MOST of the time, the answer is something that I never thought of, maybe something that I couldn't have thought of (it usually is)
By thinkning "at least I'm not homeless" when there is a leak in your basement isn't a negative thought but in fact it contains a bit of gratitude. That won't do you any harm but you could make it better by feeling gratitude and saying I'm grateful that I have my home and feel it.
By thinkning at least I have a home will make sure you have a home but it wont do anything for that leak in the basement and you will allways have problems like leaks or simmilar things but at least you will have your home.
Do your self a favour and start to love and apreciate the things you have by praising them internaly and to others and you will soon have a lovely home without leaks. When negative things like leaks happen as they sometimes do don't give them too much focus but get on with it and get it fixed all the time thinking my home serves me well and I love it.

Law of Attraction teaches the idea of grabbing a better feeling to start to change the situation to a better outcome. Better outcomes come from better feelings.
