Let us first be clear on the definition of negative conditions. A negative condition is anything you perceive as lacking in joyful experience for yourself. What I mean is that one person working at a bank may experience that function as being tedious and lacking in joy, therefore it is a negative condition for that personality. Another person may perceive that experience to be joyful and a definitely positive condition. Conditions are relative, for in essence, there is no reality, but simply your perception of it. All is relative.
For one person, living abundantly would mean living in a mansion with 16 bedrooms and a swimming pool, for another, living in a log cabin on the side of a beautiful mountain. The wealthiest person in one neighbourhood could be the poorest in another neighbourhood. This state of comparison may lead them to perceive themselves differently. In others words, their income may have remained static, but comparison leads them to certain perceptions of themselves. It is not conditions that are negative, but your perception of them.
Changing Our Perspective of What Is Negative
We also understand your question here. You want to say something like,
"How could I possibly change my perception of being robbed, raped, or murdered? They are definitely negative conditions; how could they be otherwise?"
From the perspective of the personality in the physical dimension, they are indeed negative conditions. However, viewed from the perspective of the non-physical world, the co-creation of such events are as 'perfect' as the creation of health, wealth, or any other condition.
The Universe responds to thought. From our perspective, we can view such an event as an opportunity for the personality to learn through the experience. The vision that we hold is that you should learn that you can create equally powerful experiences that you will find uplifting and joyful.
Each event in your life, whether you perceive it to be positive or negative, is indeed divine grace in action. Each creation, each event, seeks to return you to the essence of who you are, to return you to love.
Seeking the Gift of Wisdom Within a Negative Condition
You can choose to shift your perception of a negative condition by seeking the gift of wisdom within it. For example, a soul that wishes to develop the quality of perseverance will most likely set up childhood conditions that will give the emerging personality beliefs that will be limiting, beliefs that perhaps lead to feelings such as 'there's no point', etc.
With these sets of beliefs, and the inner impulse of the soul to move on and persevere, the personality will be driven to overcome its 'inadequacy'. The beliefs, because they are magnetic, will draw to the personality events that would appear to be stumbling blocks. However, in reality, they are gifts through which the soul is encouraging the personality to overcome the challenges and excel in developing the chosen pre-selected qualities.
None of this means that your soul produces the negative conditions, or that you are subject to the will of your soul. This is your life; you are in charge. However, the key to all of this is to be in contact with your feelings. It is through your feelings that your soul encourages you and guides you away from that which is less joyful. Your Soul, or Greater Self, is in contact with you moment by moment through your feelings. It was agreed that, as you emerged into this physical world, these lines of communication would be maintained.

This book’s perspective on healing will expand the reader’s vision, beyond the scope of healing as a purely individual and personal matter, to one that spans generations in its scope, crosses racial and cultural barriers and sheds new light on the relationships between victims and perpetrators, be they from governments and regimes, wars, sexual abuse or crime.
Payne’s “Orders of Love” describe a natural pattern that has been observed in the practice of Family Constellations--namely, that there is a distinct order stating who belongs and who does not belong, not only in a family system, but also in larger groups such as nations. With its many examples and stories, Payne’s book brings back into belonging those who have been excluded and bridges the gap between the healing of an individual and the healing of family, ethnic and national souls.
John L. Payne, also known as Shavasti, has travelled the length and breadth of this globe, firstly in childhood and then in his adult life in search of deeper meaning and experience. His multi-cultural background created a childhood that was spread over three continents and an adult life spent living in Europe, Africa, Central and South America and Asia, with much time being spent in the USA. With the experience of having given more than 400 workshops on 6 continents, you are receiving a wealth of cultural, ethnic and historical experience that makes his work finely tuned for ancestral healing having worked with hundreds of individuals across the globe.
The Soul of Discipline: The Simplicity Parenting Approach to Warm, Firm, and Calm Guidance- From Toddlers to Teens

Payne gives parents heartwarming help and encouragement by combining astute observations with sensitive and often funny stories from his long career as a parent educator and a school and family counselor. In accessible language, he explains the relevance of current brain- and child-development studies to day-to-day parenting. Breaking the continuum of childhood into three stages, Payne says that parents need to play three different roles, each corresponding to one of those stages, to help steer children through their emotional growth and inevitable challenging times:
• The Governor, who is comfortably and firmly in charge—setting limits and making decisions for the early years up to around the age of eight
• The Gardener, who watches for emotional growth and makes decisions based on careful listening, assisting tweens in making plans that take the whole family’s needs into account
• The Guide, who is both a sounding board and moral compass for emerging adults, helping teens build a sense of their life’s direction as a way to influence healthy decision making
Practical and rooted in common sense, The Soul of Discipline gives parents permission to be warm and nurturing but also calm and firm (not overreactive). It gives clear, doable strategies to get things back on track for parents who sense that their children’s behavior has fallen into a troubling pattern. And best of all, it provides healthy direction to the entire family so parents can spend less time and energy on outmoded, punitive discipline and more on connecting with and enjoying their kids.
Advance praise for The Soul of Discipline
“The Soul of Discipline offers practical tools for helping parents implement discipline that’s respectful and effective, but the book is so much more. Kim John Payne offers a framework to guide parents in making decisions about why, when, and how to hold tighter reins as we build skills in our children, and why, when, and how to loosen the reins as we scaffold freedom.”—Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., co-author of No-Drama Discipline
“This book gets deep inside the challenge of getting along with children and teens and thinks deeply about what they need from us to become strong and self-managing. It elevates discipline to what it should be—a caring process of helping kids orient to the world and live in it happily and well.”—Steve Biddulph, author of The New Manhood
“Kim Payne provides a useful model for choosing our parenting stance—Governor, Gardener, or Guide—depending on the situation. Most powerfully, Payne begins with the radical view that children are not disobedient but rather disoriented. The upshot of this shift in perspective is that discipline is about helping children orient themselves effectively, not about controlling or chastising.”—Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., author of Playful Parenting
