Lent is not about negative energy. It is not about giving things up or doing more as a form of penance or self-punishment. It may involve repentance, (turning around), but this is so that we can enter more fully into the presence of God.  Lent is a time to explore the way of holiness through prayer, meditation, study, fasting, so as to become a little more transparent to the light of Christ.
