Sublimation – Turning Negative Urges into Positive Actions

Dr. Eric Perry’s Blog

By Dr. Perry, PhD

“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.” ~Hans Selye

Sublimation is a subconscious psychological defense mechanism whereby we take a negative impulse and channel it into a positive behavior. This is similar to displacement (click here to refer to my earlier post on displacement) but instead of taking a negative impulse, such as aggression towards one’s boss, and displacing that negative feeling onto an innocent third party such as your husband or wife, we take the initial socially unacceptable impulse and direct it towards a positive action. We seek a positive alternative form of fulfillment for the initial destructive urge. According to Freud, the strength of the negative urge would define the strength of the positive outcome.

Our initial impulses can be subconsciously directed into a number of different areas. Here are some ways that we can engage in sublimation.

1. Anger/Emotional…

I need you, I need you

I need you, I need you

Pretty lies, pretty faces and pretty songs.
Wounded people accepting less, wanting more.

Where do we go when the blackness of the night is sweet.
Deep beers and long slow dances with strangers in dark taverns
become acceptable ending for the dreamer.

Once, love was life and life was love.
The sweet hello were the blessing near, tender voices whispered promise and kind words were honored words.
I sing to the whiskey and the beer.
Please call my name my sweet, my honey.
Please bring me near and I remembered.
Our once interlaced bodies had allowed the great sea to steal my sweet dreams ands wishes.

I sing to a lady blue on the lonely dance floor at the tavern. Her eyes looking into my eyes and she asked. Make me some sweet promises. I need kind words and soft kisses, even some lies…

Live In The Present

Cheche Winnie

Each day is a new opportunity,
A new unwritten page,
Another chance,
It’s a beginning of something good.

Yesterday may have been a bad one,
Full of disappointments,
Unbearable pains,
But it’s gone now.

Don’t allow the future take away your happiness,
We will get there step after step,
Over worrying about it may create more harm ,
Relax and be open minded.

Today is what matters the most,
Live and enjoy each moment,
Don’t let anything hold you back,
It will be alright.

Good Day Angels!  A little Light & Love from Guru Singh…

Sat Nam Dear Ones-

The “music of the spheres” — the “voices of angels” — the “inner voice of clairaudience” . . . all pathways through the labyrinth of the inner world into dimensions beyond the senses. This inner world has keys to a vast assortment of these realms in the multiverse . . . keys that have been around since the beginning of matter, but rarely noticed by the busy human senses. Human beings have been evolving through millions of years to this very point of being able to access and utilize these keys. The sacred writings say these keys will appear in the moments of great chaos . . . this is now. These keys are to the worlds of the mystics and the masters, and now these worlds are to be yours. Your job — working within the structure of your Earthly life — is to learn the practices that allow you to explore this evolution . . . to use these keys; to open the doors of perception, and access these realms of peace and calm.

You are to build the human future from these dimensions; recreate this peace on the Earth while living an extraordinary life. This means you must find stillness in moments for contemplation and meditation . . . these ‘still’ moments are found both internally and externally. This stillness is known as ‘sunia’ to the mystics and masters . . . ‘sunia’ means ‘deep listening’. When you deeply listen to any moment, you enter the world that the Buddha spoke of . . . “the middle path.” Yogi Bhajan called this, being at the point of “boredom” in his description of the ‘21 Stages of Meditation’. This kind of ‘boredom’ is the second stage of meditation’s first journey in these sacred teachings . . . this is where you explore the crystalline nature of your ‘Self’.

Our prayer is that you find your middle path; that you experience the stillness of this sacred boredom, and do not react or attempt to get out of it, but follow its path into the crystalline nature of your deeper ‘Self’. There you can hear the “music of the spheres” — the “voices of angels” — guiding you into the sacred, peaceful, highly creative worlds that are always here, there and everywhere. 

Always with Sacred Love, Blessings, Prayer & Gratitude…Sat Nam,

Guru Singh & Guruperkarma Kaur

Always with Light & Love Angels!!
