A few days ago i was watching the original "The Secret" movie with Abraham/Esther Hicks. One of the so called LOA teachers said that many people fear negative thoughts. But he explained that they don't have to because "positive thoughts are 100 times stronger than negative ones". Is it true?
I suspect the number "100" is just an arbitrary sound-bite thrown out during the interview, just for the purposes of making a point. I think the real figure, if it could be quantified, would be much, much larger.
As for why positive thoughts are so much stronger than negative ones, I find it helpful to think of Big Guys and Little Guys...
In the picture above, the Big Guy represents your Broader/Higher Self that is the accumulation of countless lifetimes of experience (i.e. focused thought) and the Little Guy represents the Physical Self in your current incarnation.
Together, the Big Guy and Little Guy make up the whole You - each represents a different focusing perspective.
If the picture was to scale, then the Big Guy would be way bigger than shown here but this is just for purposes of illustration.
If you consider that every 17 seconds, a focused uncontradicted thought expands into something "bigger" then it should be clear that the attractive power - "attraction" as in Law of Attraction - of the Big Guy (and his many lifetimes of focused thought) should absolutely dwarf the attractive power of the Little Guy...and it does.
Consider now what positive thought and negative thoughts actually are...
When the Big Guy and Little Guy are focusing differently, the Little Guy is effectively going-it-alone and doesn't have the support of the Big Guy so his attractive power is massively less.
With the support of the Big Guy, the Little Guy's attractive power is huge.
Positive thoughts have massively more power behind them than negative thoughts
But the twist here is that the Big Guy isn't going to do what the Little Guy wants...he's always just going to focus in his own way (based upon his lifetimes of accumulated experience) so if the Little Guy wants his help, it's the Little Guy who will have to change his focus.
In other words...
Your Physical Self has to find ways to align with your Broader Self...it won't work the other way around
There is more information in Is Hollywood actually creating a World Catastrophe starting from the USA through its movies?

Dr David Hawkins mapped out consciousness and this is where you will find out about thought/vibe strengths an interesting read
and as the page says reading "Power verses Force" will give you an even better understanding
I believe Kinesiology demonstrates this beautifully :-)
negative though and feeeling are a big lie made from ignorance inequity and judging.but once you understand the truth negativity as no power. why stay in annything negative to hurt your self or other? harmony understanding and truth is the way to better yourself and other. but you have free will and are responsible of it.so do what you want but do not blame me. so let there be light,be the light that you can be ,experience and enjoy.

My opinion is that in this World/Dimension which we live in, negativity prevails. Why should we deny it?
Just look around... Problems, accidents and catastrophes are easily manifested, without any special effort... In the contrary, happiness and success are so difficult for us all to make... Even if you try hard!
Why this happens?
In my opinion Earth Dimension is made of low and heavy energy that does not allow higher and positive energy to enter. This is a pessimistic point of view, I know it.
But there is a divine plan of evolution. It is the plan for raising the energy levels of the Earth Dimension. This plan depends from the evolution of the human mental/emotional level and that's why it will take long long time till positiveness rules this world...
