The news used to provide a positive function for society. Before the internet and smartphones, the nightly news provided the only connection that many people around the world could have on a consistent basis. Today, we are much more connected, and the news is no longer necessary. Beyond that, the news has evolved over the years to become a medium that lowers the quality of our collective vibrational energy.
It is important that all people try to stay as positive and optimistic as possible. The Law of Attraction brings to us what we are thinking about, feeling about and acting on. Unfortunately, by plugging in each night to watch the news, many of us are unconsciously allowing the mainstream media to lower our vibrations. These lower vibrations bring us realities that are based on anger, anxiety and fear.
To explain this further, I’ve outlined 6 good reasons not to watch the news:
1. Violence: A good portion of the nightly news is allotted to violent events. Riots, murders and wars are always top stories in the news. Watching and hearing about the most horrific things that happened today will undoubtably make you feel angry, sad or anxious, all of which are lower vibrational emotions.
2. Financial woes: It is hard to be upbeat and positive about your wealth and abundance when you hear that the Dow is down 100 points, there is a mortgage crisis and unemployment is on the rise. Even if these things are true, nothing good can come from fixating on them.
3. Natural disasters everywhere! The news focuses on drama, and one of these dramas revolves around natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes and tsunamis. Yes, these things happen, but for one to happen to you is extremely rare. There is no reason to feel fearful every night at 6 because there was a natural disaster on the other side of the planet.
