Do You Have A Good Complainer?
Diane L. Ross,
Do you have a good complainer?
Most people seem to have a built-in ability to complain that is almost automatic.
This innate complainer may seem harmless, but as you grow spiritually you become aware of
it's destructive power.
Complaining is simply another way of criticizing.
When you complain you are imbuing the situation or circumstance with even more negativity.
Complaining may seem natural and ordinary, but it
zaps your energy and leads you on
an inner downward spiral.
Complaining is to hell as prayer is to heaven.
To disarm your complainer, become aware of
its first negative thought.
Notice that the complainer is NOT YOU, it is a part of your MIND that functions independently of
YOU are what is AWARE of the complainer.
As you become aware of your complainer's first negative comment, think of a word or phrase
that will disarm it.
You might say something like, "Hush! You
don't work for me anymore."
Say something to your complainer that will
stop it from continuing.
Then in your mind's eye, visualize a symbol for your complainer that is moving away from you.
As you continue to practice this you will notice a new freedom and a new lightness entering your
You will notice that you have the ability to experience joy and to share this joy with others.
As you let go of your complainer, you open the door
through which true happiness and peace can enter.
Don't be zapped by your internal complainer!
If you let it, it will run (ruin) your life!
