I hear you. But I also pay attention to what I don't want to look at. That's the difference. Because everything teaches me. It's what you make of it that determines how you can use and apply what you 'see' to change your life for the better.
Therein lies the secret of turning 'negative' into positive. It's called transformation - or changing the vibrational wave-pattern. Your thoughts are energy, but so are your e-motions (energy-in-motion). Anything that is bothering one on an emotional plane also has an effect on one's ability to manifest (as you probably know) powerfully and immediately.
Paying attention to that is acknowledging the negative feelings, too. And only when we respect these feelings and gut hunches can we truly, genuinely and authentically become positive and not 'superficially' just focus on the positive...choosing not to 'dwell' on them.
That's part of the inner work. Of staying awake instead of in denial.
And to just focus on the mental aspect is dangerous and not looking at yourself holistically. Never mind Ram Dass who probably was saying the same things as you do: 'I don't dwell on the negative' - but it's still growing (the cancer). Oops!
Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!
Everything is important. And, as the saying goes; the devil is in the details.
