Today I want to focus on MINDSET, as at times, I swear it is everything. Our brains are affirmation tools, they affirm and confirm what the mind tells it. So if we have a negative slant, poverty mentality, are being dishonest with ourselves or in general just having a bitch and a whinge, the brain will find all the ways to ensure this becomes our reality.
One of the key parts of the High Vibe Challenge is no negativity and no gossip. But I want to take the opportunity to give extra clarity on this as this can get confusing I have found for so many.
Not engaging in unnecessary gossip or in general having bitch is helpful. Lying to yourself and others about your experiences isn’t helpful. Not engaging in negativity doesn’t also mean don’t be honest. It doesn’t mean stuff your emotions down where they can’t be felt. It definitely doesn’t mean thinking through gritted teeth, ‘just practice gratitude for heaven’s sake!’. We do not want any weird and vastly unhelpful ‘Spiritual Bypassing’ going on thank you! Spiritual Bypassing is where we use self-development or spirituality as a way to actually disengage, not be honest and pretend. Personally, I see it all too much to not bring it up here. People using spiritual terms to veil what they really mean, what’s really going on is not only unhelpful but at times can be downright awful. If you are unfamiliar with this term, I really recommend reading this article here!
The path to authenticity is to get honest and aligned with ourselves. Not mask ourselves, fake it until we make it, pretend or use fancy terminology to explain our frankly unacceptable behaviour. The High Vibe Challenge is about you learning about yourself, your patterns, beliefs and then going about discovering how to shift them to align with what YOU want, not with what you think others want/should want for you.
So take check, keep it real, and know we are all in it with you!
Written with love,
