Today it’s Diwali. It’s the festival of light. The festival finds its origin in India, where it’s a five days celebration. Each day comes with its own myths or legends and has its own traditions and rituals. Light is the symbol of joy, success, hope, happiness and prosperity. Bottom line of this celebration: good overcomes evil and positive above negative. And you don’t even have to be religious to celebrate Diwali…!

Good v.s. negative energy

Happiness and positive thoughts…it´s actually a state of mind. Despite of what many people think, luck has nothing to do with it. Just think about this: almost everyone can think of a person who apparently has it all from the outside, but is unhappy or in a vicious negative circle on the inside. So today on Diwali, it’s about giving a moment of thought about all the events, situations, thoughts and people in your life, positive and negative. The next step is to give every negative aspect a place in your past. That’s obviously easier said than done.

But if you bring negative forces to your present or future, they will only hold you back. You have to realize that every year you will end up in good and bad situations. That’s life: it has its ups and downs. Today light represents the good and gives positive energy and it burns the negativity. That’s why you put on the lights to brighten up the darkest hours. If you can mentally picture how the light burns negativity, then you’re already half way. It will be easier to mentally burn the negativity of your own life and focus on all the good things.
