Did your mother ever wash your mouth out with soap? Or say to you, see “If you can’t say something nice, clinic don’t say anything at all?” Or what about this one: “Children should be seen and not heard”?

Isn’t fascinating how our society is so focused on what comes out of our mouths but less caring of what goes on in our minds? While we definitely shape our realities with the words we speak, the root cause of our words lies in our minds — in our thoughts. How often have you paid attention to what actually goes on in your mind?

Have you ever had a dirty mind? A dirty mind can refer to a fixation on porno, but it also refers to a mind contaminated with negative or low tone energies. Have you ever examined what happens to your world when your mind is negative? If you’ve ever walked through the process you’ll realize that when your mind is in a negative state, it contaminates everything it touches with doubt, fear, and other low tones.

This contamination occurs because of the Law of Contagion, a universal operational law that states:

* Something done to a likeness, part, or symbol produces a similar effect on the likened, the divided whole, or the symbolized.

When your mind is negatively oriented and then you focus on a particular topic, that new topic or thought becomes “part” of mind, and takes on the negative tone of mind. Whatever you touch with your “dirty” mind becomes dirty too.

For instance, suppose you’ve just had a fight with your boss and then your mind wanders to the topic of your love life. Perhaps you’ve been looking for the love of your life but he or she hasn’t shown up yet. In your current state of mind, you will contaminate your love life with uncertainty, doubt, and fear. You might start to think thoughts like, “Why does life have to be so hard?” or “Great, the way my life is going I’ll probably never find my soul mate!” Sound familiar? With these contaminated thoughts, any manifestation of a soul mate moves further and further away from you.

This is when you really need Clorox Wipes for your mind! If only we could scrub our minds clean, but alas! The best thing you can do when you are negative is to avoid touching anything else with your mind until you become more positive. Do whatever it takes to reach a higher energetic state. Take a walk, breathe, light a sun candle, hire an angel… whatever you need to do to make your mind a clean machine. Only then should you allow your mind to wander to other subjects without fear of contagion.
