    Negative Anticipation

    Editors’ note: Fear is the main source of negative anticipation, but it also occurs in the negativities greed, power, dominance and sex in particular. Sex dominates a lot of negative anticipation, giving rise to fear of rejection, sexual insecurity, all fuelled by imagination. Wanting perfection and fear of failure are both examples of negative anticipation. Negative anticipation is very common in people who deny with the intellect. It inhibits decision-making, leading to vacillation in an effort to avoid mistakes. This negativity can be countered with autosuggestion and prayer, and practicality. If you truly thought a situation through you would come to an objective view and that should effectively deal with any negative anticipation.
