What happens when you fall off the path?
What happens when you fall off the path? I hadn't sunk that low in a long time. I wasn't watching the mind, and she ran away with the negative Nancies. She started believing the naysayers, and sweating the small stuff.
The last year hasn't been a smooth ride—ups and downs, and twists and turns--all the whole trying to hold the faith, believe in synchronicity, and allow.
Patience isn't my strong suit, nor is waiting. Nor is sitting idle. Nor is budgeting. Nor is graciously dismissing the assholes (energy sucking vampires, scammers, pissers on your parade, etc.). All of these things (and more) have been challenged in the last 6 months. Somewhere in January, my mindset derailed. I didn't hear myself saying the negative tracks, they just snuck in, little by little (the fuckers!). And accordingly, doubt, fear, disbelief, and frustration settled in and made themselves comfortable.
It took the fall from our deck on April 3rd to bring me back to center. To remember to use my tools, to surrender to the flow, to flip the scripts.
I did the same thing I tell my students to do:
1. Be observant for a week, set reminders to check your mindset, and write down the negative tracks. I learned this trick from one of my early coaches and love it because it works extremely well. This task brings your awareness inward, pausing in the present moment, and checking yourself.
2. Then after a week, you take the top 3 repeated tracks or themes and flip the script, writing affirmations for all 3 that are opposite of the negative track. Many times a day, especially when you hear the negative one, or feel yourself going there.
This habit sticks if you do it for a month or more, and before you know it, way more thoughts are positive than negative. Once that locks in, the synchronicities can flow, the right people show up, the way forward aligns, the light returns, and joy flutters into the dark spaces to bring back the childish wonder. Then you can start manifesting your dreams!
If you don't know, we have a course that helps you do this: 21 days of affirmations. I think I'm going to go through it again this month. Who's with me?
