Sometimes I feel like the only way out of a negative emotion or situation is the way through when nothing else seems to work.I remind myself that this will come to pass.For a long time I've been motivated, happy and in a good mood. Recently however this has changed. I live with a relative who has a bad temper and this persons mood is getting worse. I've been trying to attract positive things in my life but just recently a lot has happened between me and this person. I find myself angry because of this persons negativity and attitude. I also tried using emotional clearing techniques such as Two Hands touching and others. My mood won't get better. I channel my energy productively and this has helped me when im really in a bad state of mind. I would like to know how I can make a positive manifestation out of all the bad stuff. Is there a way to possibly turn every negative event and emotion into something positive? I'm familiar with LOA and the universe but I would like to know if god tests us daily and if we get a blessing for every test that we pass. I understand that the reality that you believe to be true is the one that is real for you but i how can I achieve this? What can I do about this if anything?What does all of this even mean? I'm a little confused but I would love to hear some ideas.

When the phrasology of 'turning bad things into good ones' is tossed around, I feel what's really implied is that people start literally thinking unpleasant situations, circumstances and interactions can somehow be "transformed" into a nice, happy-ending story.
However, in my short life experience, that isn't the case.
What is relevant is such: you can gain great things by using reflection from negative events in constructive a fashion, thus, that actually translates that you turned a bad thing into a helpful one.
People who are now successful in any endevour in life have usually experiences great polar-end hardship in that area they are successful in. You have a look at Thomas Edison being unsuccessful countless times in the formation of his inventions. World famous pick-up artists who seduce the opposite sex at ease all started off frustrated and single. Self-made millionairs used to live in desire circumstances also.
And whilst I am taking a stab at it here, you can argue that sometimes, these negative experiences are actually the best things that can happen to you! (Because through them you learn to align with your higher mind more).
All of the appointments in this lifetime of yours have already been made. Go along with things and odds are you'll learn from this experience in no time, the quickest way ,is allowing it to be in your reality so learn what you need to learn, instead of having secret wishes for it to shun away.

It is none of your business if anyone is negative. That is their right to be negative. You are angry because you don't accept them as they are, you want them to be different to make you happy.
If someone is "negative", it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is if you will keep YOUR thoughts positive and if not, it has nothing to do with them, you just need more practice staying positive.
It is so easy to be positive when we are surrounded with positivity or even very light challenges, but what is the point of that? In that situation you are already positive, so there is no work being done! The true spiritual work is staying positive even in the face of negativity. And if you need everyone else to be positive or else you will fall to negativity and anger - then that has nothing to do anyone, and everything to do with where you keep your focus.

This is one of the best snippets of advise around on the website.

Do you really need this "relative" in your life? If it was a friend would you continue your relationship? Or back out? Stand your ground! But do this with love in your heart. You know you have love for this person. That will not diminish. But like you've stated you do things to uplift your emotions. Continue to love yourself. And the rest will follow.

One of the biggest issues I find with trying to put the LOA into practice (when I remember to) is that it can be very easy to start feeling good about current and life situations and then - in parallel - find that I suddenly start feeling that the next bad situation is around the corner and will take the edge of the current state of feeling good.. and this can put an immediate negative tinge on the process of feeling good no matter what and then cause me to slip back into a neutral and eventually slightly fearful state. This is especially true if an unexpected negative event does present itself. All of a sudden the process of feeling good about your current life situation is 'reset' and the negative state of mind is quickly back for most of the remaining day.
I think the key is that when thinking about possible future negative scenarios, it is essential to say to yourself something along the lines of "I can handle any situation that life throws at me. I can turn any negative situation into a positive". That's the sort of thing I hope to do more and more from now on so that it becomes an increasingly natural state of mind. The feeling to be reached for is that life is good and the situation is acceptable, no matter what the current circumstance.
If you can think to yourself as much as possible that your relatives negative state of mind will pass and even if not, you can handle anything that happens in a positive manner then this will mean that you are more prepared when any negative energy from any source presents itself and it will be far more difficult to shake you out of your positive feelings.
Hope this helps.

is it even possible to shake you out of positive feeling and state of being if there is no negativity in you? if you make the choice to be positive and let no one make you become negative as they are since the choice is yours always then why would you have to change to become negative and be trap in that sorrow. in this world of duality you will see a lot of negativity evil and darkness from the overflow of the heart that brings sorrow for them self and other do not fall for it. keep the cup-

clean on the inside in truth with a good and pure heart. for situation throws at you it is your choice if you want to meddle with it or not sometime it is not needed and some other time even if needed your help is not wanted, keep quiet side step and let it pass by you do not need to catch it. if you truly need to catch it and know you can bring some change it is your choice if you cannot bring it to terms at least be glad for what you have bring out of your own choice.

@Jacob ford you need to meditate and clean your water. if someone makes you angry because they are negative. you still need to work on your self. As for the person that is negative they also need to work on them self. Then why judge and blame each other? to the measure you judge also will you be judge. I will also say this to you even if you say you are perfect in this world, this world is not perfect, this world is in duality and many are lost looking on the outside for what they desire and complaining blaming and judging each other, and not one of them are able to walk a mile in someone else shoe, if they would be able to walk a mile in some one else shoe then they would not do to them what they would hate being done to them self and they could understand each other, they need to look inside clean the inside of the cup with pure water in truth with no duality. The darkness will not come to the light.
Let there be light, be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.
"For this reason I say, if one is whole, one will be filled with light, but if one is divided, one will be filled with darkness. "Anyone here with two ears had better listen! There is light within a person of light, and it shines on the whole world. If it does not shine, it is dark." "I have cast fire upon the world, and look, I'm guarding it until it blazes."
I have teach you this and explain it to you, even if it might be more then you can bear. If I have been your helper even if you do not know me or see me, if you receive me and follow my word all is good.

What we expect comes to us and that includes what we fear or worry about. My question, I trick my mind into expecting only what I want.
