You watch the news, open the newspaper and on a daily basis come across so many horrific incidences. Some are natural disasters and some are the acts of humans. How can we prevent ourselves from being affected by them and more importantly how can an event which has perhaps been created by the negative thinking patterns of the majority of the people in this world not enter our reality?

I Think Therefore I Am
At the risk of sounding a bit glib, why not stop watching the news or opening the newspaper?
Works for me.
If there is anything you really need to know about your physical world, just trust that your Higher Self will bring that information to you somehow.

I'm with Stingray on this.
Personally, I stopped watching the news a couple of years ago. Usually when it's a major catastrophe we'll hear of it through word of mouth but by watching the news and seeing those images, it's hard not to feel bad and when we begin to feel bad about something,we're only contributing negative energy to the situation - "Where attention goes, energy flows."
I know a lot of people consider this as putting your head in the sand but my rule is that if I can't contribute something positive to a situation, I'm not going to add negative energy to it by feeling bad. And as Stingray pointed out, if it's something you need to know, it will be brought to your attention.

I completely agree with Michaela and Stingray. I stopped watching the news a couple of years ago, and inviting those bad vibrations into my life and my home. I don't miss it at all. It's just too negative, and as mentioned, adds nothing to our happiness. Nearly all of it, are things we can do nothing about, and things that don't affect us. It was hard to stop watching and reading at first, but in time you won't miss it at all and will feel better.
