For the energy of love acknowledged is best understood by a word and a heartfelt thank you. You term this gratitude. When you are at one with this it is attitude (at a tude). The light of more attention forces this principle.
The negative energies have no place for a heart that focuses on the joys of goodness. Concern your lives with joy and the negative will have to take a seat and wait for their opportunity of distraction.
If this is prolonged, negativity will be out of shape and weak so you must mind your hearts. Be busy in your positive actions and the energies of your creations will not have time for the negative.
