I have heard that we should avoid negative feelings in our lives such as feel negative about ourselves or even talk to other people in negative ways or watch a sad movie since it will affect our emotions and then our manifestations don't come true.
I learn acting and I want to be an actor. It's a must that I have to BE and FEEL as same as the characters and it's impossible to perform well if I don't blend myself with the characters' feelings. I have to call my good and bad experiences in the past in order to perform. Before knowing the law of attraction, I was taught that acting is a way to release our bad emotions in our subconscious mind. However, I think the law of attraction claim differently: acting bad feelings seems to be harmful for manifestation.
So I just want to know how actors who play negative roles (e.g. character that is full of anger, fear, or depression) can manifest their goals and become successful? Don't those feeling attracts bad things into actors' life or be a resistance to their goal? Can our subconscious mind distinguish between acting and reality? (but then why we can't watch sad movies? It's other people's stories too.)
If the answer is YES, it affects the actors, then what can I do to not let the negative feelings from acting to disturb me as much as possible? any solution?
Thank you very much :D
Abraham have said that Christopher Reeve managed to find the "feeling place" of a previous role (in the film Above Suspicion) that involved a paralyzed man so well that he manifested the subsequent accident that crippled him as a vibrational match to it.
So I guess what you're concerned about is possible.
The thing to remember is that it is dominant thoughts and attitudes that the Universe/Law of Attraction responds to, not what you do once in a while.
So if you are a predominantly happy person and you take on a role temporarily of a miserable person, that wouldn't immediately start you manifesting the life of a miserable person.
After the role is over, I presume you would revert back to who you really are - a predominantly happy person.
I guess it's those actors who take the craft so seriously that they become their roles non-stop for long periods who might be at some risk. Someone like the late Heath Ledger springs to mind who locked himself away in a hotel room for a month to become psychopathic enough to play The Joker which (just a personal observation only) may well have affected his health and contributed to his death.
I've never studied acting so I can't really advise beyond pointing out the general principle here.
