I first heard this term about a year ago. It just feels wrong to me. But I truly wanted to understand this concept so I did some research. I now understand why and when someone would view thinking positively as toxic. But positivity itself is NOT toxic. What is toxic? FORCED positivity.
Who came up with this term anyhow? First of all, positivity is not even a real word. And second of all, if it were the two terms do not go together. It is a true oxymoron.
So what is toxic positivity? Well, I find it to be when something really tragic happens and someone tells you, "Everything happens for a reason." or "Just think positive it will be over soon." That my friends are forcing positive vibes on someone who needs to grieve. That is FORCED positivity.
Study the diagram of consciousness by David Hawkins. It is Power VS Force. Do you think someone who is coming from POWER is going to FORCE positivity on someone? NO! So, therefore, what I teach is not toxic, nor is positivity...
You see them everywhere on your Facebook feed. Friends selling lashes, makeup, candles, workout attire (really cute stuff), jewelry, and even teas. Yup teas! If you are one of those folks selling online you will want to read this blog post.
Do you want to appeal to your customer? Abso-freaking-lutley! If not then skip this post!
I have 3 tips for you! But before I get to those tips, remember selling is not about YOU! Never forget that. This is outer intention 101.
Inner intention is about you, it’s what you hope to acquire. Maybe that is the sale. Your sales will expound by leaps and bounds if you use Outer Intention. That’s a Reality Transurfing term but I am about to explain what it is and how it works. I have to tell you a story first.
It seems every gal I know is selling something on Facebook and starting a new group or following to join them on their journey. So if everyone is doing this, what are YOU going to do to stand out? Hang...
The word of the day today is FOCUS. Why? Because I was looking at Tony Robbins 3 Patterns of FOCUS and decided this is good stuff! It needs to be shared!
What are you focused on right now? Think about that before reading further. I asked this question in my stories as well.
Now the 3 patterns of focus with Tony Robbins are as follows:
YOUR ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION WILL QUANTIFY YOUR EMOTIONS!
AND IT IS YOUR CHOICE!
To be in the best state of mind/consciousness: Focus on what you are grateful for. Focus on what you can control. And focus on the present.
Anything else will put you on a lower scale of consciousness. Remember the consciousness scale in Power vs Force?
Any of the FORCE consciousness levels means that your...
The 30-day anomalous challenge! It transformed my world in magic fashion. Seriously!
What is it? Well, my friend Renee Garcia of Reality Transurfing Institute introduced it to me in late 2019.
So, it is no coincidence that this challenge is the very first week of my Transform in Magic Fashion Academy. I, of course, take it to the next level!
In my opinion, the Anomalous Challenge is much like Artist Dates from the Book The Artist Way by Julia Cameron. The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly “artistic”– think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the imagination. They spark whimsy.
The Anomalous Challenge and The Artist Dates are just ways to get you out of your comfort zone. It actually reprograms your brain - in magic fashion. But you knew I was going to say this.
In late 2019 I started recording videos of myself...
I know I don't like it either but it is required that you wear a mask while working out now. I actually got in trouble for pulling my mask off while doing the stairs at Planet Fitness. Since that day they have allowed you to remove your mask while doing very strenuous exercises like stair climbing.
As a Certified Fitness Trainer, I do not recommend wearing a mask at all during exercise due to the risk of hyperventilation. However, it is required due to COVID. And I respect that.
I have found a mask that is cool and comfortable and most importantly, breathable. It allows maximum breathing as a mask will allow. I still do not wear mine during extreme exercise.
Here is a link to it on Amazon. I have stocked up on these as I wear one at work and now it is required everywhere. It is only kind to respect the rules without complaining folks!
"Time, it is only your resistance to it that makes you measure it." -Abraham Hicks
How do you resist time? Statements like: It's going to be a long day. Looking forward to Friday. Can't wait for my vacation. I have to work until 5:30 and it's only 2:00. Monday is here already?
All of the previous statements resist time.
What about the things you enjoy? Did you know that is also resistance to time? Weekends fly by. I wish I could stop time while I am on vacation. Resistance to what 'is' can speed up time as well.
A wise person once taught me how to release that resistance to time. Here is how you can do that......Have you ever watched water boil? It takes a while for it to boil if you are watching it. "A watched pot never boils." is that statement.
Well, if you want to speed time up, stop the resistance or stop watching the water boil.
If you want to slow time down watch your water boil - or pay attention to every little thing.
