It's Okay to Be Negative Sometimes!

Written by Dina Giolitto

Lately, I've been hearing that it's not okay to have negative thoughts.

There's been a lot of talk about motivation, inspiration, positive energy channeling and such. Have you heardrepparttar messages ofrepparttar 138450 spiritually enlightened? I have! And frankly... I am a little weirded out.

We're being constantly told to open our minds... do everything, try everything, accept everything and everyone. But at what point does all this intense positivity cross over into a world without reason? At what point do we become blinded by our own faith?

Let's get one thing straight right here: being a positive thinker and spreading positivity does NOT mean you're supposed to just go along with what everyone else says.

Let's pretend that a friend has suggested that you attend a four-day seminar on self-improvement. At this seminar, you'll get to sit in a hard wooden chair for thirteen hours a day, in a room with 400 other people like yourself. You'll get minimal food and bathroom breaks, and you'll be spoon-fed motivational speeches by qualified experts who will guide you onrepparttar 138451 path to self-enlightenment.

I guess if you were to subscribe torepparttar 138452 new age positive thought revolution, you'd have no choice but to say "YES! That sounds great! WHERE DO I SIGN UP?" But if you're like me,repparttar 138453 realist in you will always ask, "WHY? Why would I want to do that?"

When wasrepparttar 138454 last time YOU asked why?

Was it when you were just a wee tot with a free-thinking, curious spirit? You were pretty positive back then, and yet you still hadrepparttar 138455 good sense to question.

On December 26, 2004, a tsunami devastated many regions of Asia. Over 30,000 people died in Sri Lanka alone. The total count of dead was over 300,000. Today scientists are working on a warning system that could alert people to safety before another tsunami moves inland. If such a system had been in place on December 26, 2004,repparttar 138315 death count would have been reduced significantly.

Prior warning of imminent disaster is a God send. Additional minutes given inrepparttar 138316 face of impending disaster can shape destinies and preserve lives. A few additional minutes can have eternal repercussions when given to someone before destruction hits. Advanced warning is a good thing.

This brings me to a question: Is it possible for human beings to receive a warning without hearing an external warning device? Can people be warned of impending disaster by some internal sense or intuitive “check” in their inner being? Does this sound absurd? Before you delete this page, listen to this.

On May 12, 2005,repparttar 138317 Russian paper Pravda reported a news article entitled, “Profound knowledge of animal instincts to help humans predict horrible natural disasters.” The article talks aboutrepparttar 138318 movement of animals throughoutrepparttar 138319 regions hit by tsunami, just beforerepparttar 138320 waters poundedrepparttar 138321 inlands. Since ancient times man has been recordingrepparttar 138322 mysterious movements of animals before impending disasters occur. For example, an ancient manuscript dated 2000 years before Christ records weasels suddenly disappearing from their usual habitats in Crete shortly before a very powerful earthquake rockedrepparttar 138323 island.

In 1975 snakes suddenly appeared onrepparttar 138324 surface ofrepparttar 138325 ground inrepparttar 138326 dead of winter in China. The local authorities treated such phenomena as a harbinger of a coming earthquake. As it turned out, a mammoth earthquake, measuring 7.3 onrepparttar 138327 Richter scale rockedrepparttar 138328 area. Many lives were spared because they had evacuated their homes earlier. During WWII, London residents paid attention to cats and dogs’ behavior before air raids. Their unusual behavior served as prior warning that German bombers were coming.

Flamingos were seen leavingrepparttar 138333 lowlands, flying inrepparttar 138334 direction of mountainous areas. Employees of a Malaysian zoo noticed that all animals had a very strange way of behavior—the majority of zoo animals hid in their shelters and refused to go out.
