Mastering Your Mindset

Forgiveness- Facing What Scares You (The Special Halloween Edition)

Forgiveness is the most powerful thing that you can do for your physiology and your spirituality, and it remains one of the least attractive things to us, largely because our egos rule so unequivocally. To forgive is somehow associated with saying that it is all right, that we accept the evil deed. But this is not forgiveness. Forgiveness means that you fill yourself with love and you radiate that love outward and refuse to hang onto the venom or hatred that was engendered by the behaviors that caused the wounds.

– Wayne Dyer

For me, when you are unable to learn how to forgive yourself, it stunts you from being able to mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically grow to level UP in your life. Holding on to the past, holding on to whoopsies (note: I am saying “whoopsie”, not “whoopie”…but maybe that whoopie was a whoopsie, too), and holding on to hurt, anger, and embarrassment keeps you stagnant in your present and for your own future.

So let’s level up and start forgiving ourselves as well as anything and anyone else we need to forgive in order to level the fuck UP into our version 2.0 selves…calling in all of our manifestations…and being OPEN and ALLOWING all of our blessings to come into our lives (both planned and unplanned).

Journal out the following:

1) What do I need to forgive myself for in order to release what is no longer serving my soul for its highest happiness?

2) Answer this question at least 5 times: how can I forgive myself for these things? What could I be thinking from now on? What could I be doing from now on?

3) Who do I need to forgive from hurting me in order to release it because it’s no longer serving my soul for its highest happiness?

4) Answer this question at least 5 times: how can I forgive them for hurting me? What could I be thinking from now on so that I do not limit myself in my present and my future about this? What could I be doing from now on in order to show myself I have moved on from this hurt?

5) Let’s flip it around! Finish this sentence 10 times: if I choose to not forgive, what is it allowing me to continue to think?

6) Let’s keep flipping it around! Finish this sentence 10 times: if I choose to not forgive, what is it allowing me to continue to feel?

7) Let’s flip it around furthermore! Finish this sentence 10 times: if I choose to not forgive, what is it allowing me to continue to do in my life?

Share an accountability post in the Manifest It! group and tell us what you’ve realized! Remember, we all have the same and similar thoughts and feelings. You are leveling UP into your version 2.0 self, so why continue to hold on to what is no longer serving you and your soul for your highest happiness?

Have a great weekend!

My Chemist Is A Great Example of This

 

78960aaf-c85b-491d-a71f-bb4220adb45d.png

Hey Sensational Soul!

On the drive home from university today I was reflecting on my second book’s editing process about how I manifested my ideal relationship after 10 short months once I had made the DECISION to call him in. It’s amazing how blessings come flooding into your physical realm when you get out of your own way.

You know, we like to focus on the doubt because at least we KNOW what to expect when we are feeling doubtful. We are familiar with this feeling and it feels comfortable to feel safe in our feelings of doubt.

But…you know I was going there…some AMAZING gifts come into your physical realm when you DO get out of your own way by surrendering to the Universe’s timing and the “how”.

If I hadn’t made the CHOICE and the DECISION to call in my ideal relationship, I would have probably gone an ADDITIONAL 9 years of being so incredibly single.

I’m talking cuddling up with the cat, some hot tea, and a few books single for 9 YEARS.

There is the saying, “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.” Yes, I do understand what this phrase means; however, I truly do believe that once you make the DECISION to ALLOW your SOUL’s blessings to physically manifest, and you get out of your own way by trusting the process and following your soul’s calling, the grass IS greener on the other side. No joke!

Yeah, feeling “safe” is something you at least know you can expect.

Yeah, feelings of doubt, fear, sadness, and even telling yourself all the excuses you come up with is “comfortable” to continue feeling.

However, what if you wake up 5 or 10 years from now and you ALLOWED so much of your precious time on this earth to just pass you by and you are STILL IN THE SAME PLACE you have ALWAYS been because of it!?

________________________________

Listen up!

Whatever excuse you are telling yourself to keep yourself exactly in the same place you are right now IS going to happen in the physical realm because this IS what you are claiming to deem as true and as real. It IS going to happen in the physical realm because this IS what you focus on, and what you focus on expands.

If you think your “life is nearing the end”, sorry, don’t mean to be such a bitch; but, yeah, your life IS nearing the end because it’s what you are choosing to focus on. I’m not saying that if you focus on the opposite you will not transition from the physical world, we are ALL going to transition at one point.

Here is what I mean

My sweet chemist is a lot older than I am, we are 27 years apart. But, he doesn’t go around complaining about life, his age, and how life was so much better in the past, excuses, excuses, excuses…NO! His doctor tells him he has the health of a man 10 years younger than his actual age…and it IS because he is a positive person. He focuses on everything he has as blessings. And then MORE blessings come into his life through his research in chemistry, through monetary blessings, in love, his health, and even in smaller things that happen throughout his day.

Hell, he is way more fit than I am as a person. He often tells me, “I feel the same as I did when I was in my 30’s.” And he has perfect vision, perfect hearing, and he never gains weight. I swear he must have mixed some kind of chemical solution and drank it to become a superhuman.

Pssst…I have a secret:

You know how one person in a couple is usually the better catch over the other person? Well, that’s him.

He easily beats me in his intellect (3 degrees, math genius)

He easily beats me physically (he could outpace me all day long in exercise)

He easily beats me in the career and financial realm (he is a patented inventor and keeps on coming up with more inventions)

He is so calm and easy-going (no anxiety, unlike me)

And well…his gorgeous green eyes with long lashes and those damn dimples…I mean…come on!

My point is…this guy IS who he is because he made the DECISION to surrender to the Universe and keep his end-results in mind (ex: career achievements). He gets out of his own way and all these blessings come into his physical realm!

You get what you focus on. And what you focus on expands.

This is not to say challenges don’t happen to you, they do sometimes. Most challenges, though, happen to teach you something for your soul’s highest happiness. You may not realize the lesson in the moment, but you usually understand it later after you understand what it’s teaching you.

So, what do YOU choose to focus on? What is your DECISION in allowing in all your soul’s blessings in your life? And most importantly, are you going to ALLOW yourself to receive these blessings?

You hold the keys, you hold the power, and you create your reality.

Is It Time for Your Mindset Health Check?

 

44155095_10112306006141920_2700140046576517120_n

Whoa…these past few days I have been feeling physically defeated, mentally exhausted, and just plain…uncentered on both a mindset and spiritual level. My dreams have been crazy strange and vivid at the same time. I wake up feeling so freaking exhausted because sleep is supposed to be for resting and I feel like I have woken up from running in a marathon.

And during my moments of being awake during the day, I am feeling as if there isn’t enough time in the day to get everything that I want to be done COMPLETED. I feel like I’m constantly racing against time because I have SO MANY ideas and tasks that I am executing right now.

Do you ever feel this way, too? Like no matter what you do, no matter how fast you go, no matter how much sleep you attempt to get, you just feel completely uncentered both in your mindset and in your spirituality?

I did some Mastering Your Mindset journaling today for about 30 minutes and I asked myself the following:

– Forget about the end-goal for a second: what is my purpose in my life? Why do I KNOW this is my purpose?

– I decided last week to follow my top 4 priorities each day…so why am I feeling exhausted to do them each day?

– What do I need to CLEAR OUT right now to finish completing my goals for the next month?

o For example, I am publishing 3 formats by New Year’s Day: 2 of my new book and 1 of my currently published book. In addition, I want to build 2 more Facebook group programs and 2 more automated programs by New Year’s Day.

– WHY do I feel like everything has to be done by New Year’s Day? Why am I pushing myself so hard?

– And most importantly: WHAT am I afraid of that I feel like I need to control my pace and control my outcome?

When I strip away all my fears, all my doubts, all my self-doubt, and the concept of time (itself) I was able to determine what is my engine/my passion in life. I was then able to strip away all the layers of “I need”, “I should”, “I must”, etc. and get to the CORE of my soul’s purpose-work.

When you strip away all your layers of distraction and noise you remain in touch with your soul’s purpose in the world. – Jaclyn Nicole Johnston

So, I want to remind you that you, too, can stay the course of your soul’s purpose work and your soul’s truth when you stop putting stopwatches, timers, restrictions, and expectations on yourself.

This is your friendly reminder that your mindset is a choice: do you want to get back into your state of flow and alignment? Or, do you want to allow life’s distractions to steer you away from your soul’s path/your soul’s purpose?

Oh, those pesky distractions and those pesky fears…they do have a way of showing themselves to us in one form or another.

Is it time for YOUR mindset health check? Journal out your own explorations from the questions above and strip away your own noise and distractions that may have you feeling a bit uncentered lately.

PS- I meditated for a little bit today and it helped. I need to get back to doing this daily again. The holidays are fast approaching and it’s easy to get caught up in all of life’s distractions.

Have a great week!

Own Your Truth & Own Your Power

 

42198512_10112187926629210_9164177998717386752_n

Hey Sensational Soul!

I like to give Mastering Your Mindset training in our FREE Facebook group, Manifest It!, and this week it’s about owning your truth and owning your power. Your truth is your soul’s core, your soul’s purpose, and your power is staying on your soul’s path.

Check it out here!

Explore By Journaling Out the Following:

1) Pick an empowering affirmation phrase (make it up or choose one from somewhere) and plug it into your phone to have the alarm go off each morning when you first wake to see it and anchor it in!

2) Answer this question as many times as needed during your DAILY Mastering Your Mindset journaling: I am now DECIDING that the next time I have an emotional flare-up, I CHOOSE to think…

3) Answer this question as many times as needed during your DAILY Mastering Your Mindset journaling: I am now DECIDING that the next time I have an emotional flare-up, I CHOOSE to feel…

4) Answer this question as many times as needed during your DAILY Mastering Your Mindset journaling: I am now DECIDING that the next time I have an emotional flare-up, I CHOOSE to believe about myself…

5) What are some things you can DO to empower yourself and love yourself today?

6) Do you perform these things often? Why or why not?

7) Underneath all of those layers of doubts and fears, what is it that you TRULY want in your existence of being happy? (hint: this is your soul’s core of happiness)

8) What are you NOW choosing to decide for yourself, your soul’s truest core and your soul’s truest purpose?

Remember: practice how you DECIDE to choose to respond whenever those emotional flare-ups happen. When you practice your responses through repetition and consistency on a daily basis while you are feeling more level in your emotions, it makes it so much easier to respond in the moment when the flare-up happens.

Have a great weekend!
