I am hereby renaming my Self-Isolation my own Personal Retreat!
Do you ever feel like there is greater meaning in everything?
I wanted to bring this topic to you today in case you’re feeling in a low vibration.
Perhaps you are feeling affected by what you are hearing on the media, reading on your social media, and it’s making you feel low, or even, scared!
Let’s get something really clear from the outset… The media is a for-profit business, so there are lots of benefits to them creating fear and hysteria like this around the Coronavirus. I’m not saying that the that the Coronavirus isn’t something to worry about, but just be aware that it is in the media’s favour to only present one side of the story; the side of the story that is designed to stimulate one part of your brain!
This part of your brain is called the Amygdala.
3 weeks ago I talked at an event about the significance of this part of the brain in biohacking emotional trauma. The Amygdala is the part of our reptilian brain that only knows how to focus on the bad things because its #1 priority is to keep you safe. The amygdala is where all of our emotional memories are created. They are where they are stored, remembered and given meaning to. And so, what the media is doing right now is looking to stimulate the Amygdala by telling you worst possible side of the story to create fear because they know that the amygdala is only able to focus on the negative. They’ll even manipulate the perception of a story to scare you because they are gearing their media towards the emotional memories that are going to make the biggest reaction in us by triggering the Amygdala and creating the thought patterns that keep us safe, have us overthinking; even have us over-fearing because then we will go back again and again to keep checking on their stories to ensure our continued safety (and survival.)
The more that we freak out, the more our Amygdala is heightened, the more our nervous system is heightened, and our perception of danger is heightened also. So you see the spiral, you see the spiral of people actually becoming more fearful and making more rash decisions. That is where we’re seeing that spiral into panic buying because fear is increasing.
So what we have to do is fill our brain with something different, something that isn’t going to trigger our Amygdala, something that is going to keep us in the front of our brain in the area that is known as the prefrontal cortex. This is the new part of the brain where we make conscious, rational decisions, away from fear. It is where we innovate, it is where we create, and it is where you want to be if you want to really thrive through this crisis, especially if you’re in a mission driven business because, again, if you’re in a mission driven business and you are being triggered, you’re going into that fear place where no action happens.
What if the economy is going to fall down? What if my business has to close? How am I going to pay my bills? What if I get sick and I can’t provide for my family? None of these thought patterns are going to support you to really come through this crisis in a good place. (If you want to get a handle on these thought patterns, click here for tools.) And if you’re not coming through this crisis in a good place your communities are not coming through the crisis in a good place. Because if you have a mission driven business and if you have a Soul Goal to help people, they are looking for leaders right now to stand up, step up and to help them keep their vibe high and model the higher level of consciousness they require to thrive. I believe that we all have this mission to serve in this way right now.
So, how do you feel fill your brain with the good stuff to remain productive and innovative and healthy?
The first thing is you switch off the goddamn news. If you want to use social media and your newsfeed isn’t filled with positive positive posts, then go into groups, find new groups that have positive media and good news. Right now it’s critical where you surround yourself. I’m really blessed to be surrounded by amazing people and to be multiple online communities, including my own that are lifting me up. Plus I have my clients! This month, I’m holding a Mastermind for them and we had the most incredible Guest Expert training this morning from an incredible speaker who shared a Visioneering Toolbox and the whole group lit up! (You can join my Superhuman Entrepreneurs Club to get access to this).
So, instead of feeling heavy, because what the media is doing is making us feel heavy and making us feel negative, find ways to make yourself feel lightness and positivity. Do the internal work, switch off the news and switch on positive affirmations, listen to music and dance! Read positive books. Because when we’re feeling heavy and when we’re feeling that that low vibration we don’t show up as the best versions of ourselves. We are 31% less productive when we’re not feeling good. So if you have a business, now is the time to be productive and to be innovative and creative.
In my personal Facebook group, I am also doing something to help people. I feel extremely passionate about this because I lived in a fear place for 14 years. It was a survival mode and it was a crock of shit. I wasn’t showing up for other people and I wasn’t showing up for my family. I wasn’t showing up for myself. I was responding to the world around me, and the world around me was full of things to fear because of the experiences I’d gone through, so I almost feel like the Coronavirus is like a bottled version of this, which I’m seeing people suffer through and I want to offer my support.
Now is not the time to shrink to the reality of something that may or may not necessarily be the truth. You can control what you focus on and who who you listen to. And I offer the invitation to listen to me! I’m going to be doing seven days of free videos in my personal Facebook Group to help you with the internal work, to give you tools and strategies to increase your level of consciousness and I’m also going to be giving you powerful strategy if you’re in business right now to pivot and rise to this challenge.
Let me help you to keep in tune with who you are, so that you’re not going in that fear based direction like everybody else and you’re able to really stand strong in your own certainty, create your own certainty and manifest the financial abundance that you deserve. Let me bring more of you out instead of shrinking to this reality, so you expand to the vision of what you want to create in the world at a time when the world really needs it!
I see as an opportunity for lightworkers, healers, spiritual people, coaches and other mission-driven entrepreneurs to really stand up and serve in a way that has always been needed, but the need has never been realized before.
I feel like I have so much to give and I want to give it to you for free.
I do ask for an email address to be added, but in exchange for this I’ll add you to my free Mynddojo Resource Centre!
The three key results I want you to get out of the next seven days in the group are:
- I want you to feel better and avoid this illness because your vibe is so high. Joe Dispenza did a study with 120 people and measured the IGA in their immune system at the start of the four days and then for four days they spent 10 minutes a day doing something to elevate their vibration. At the end of the four days when they retested, the IGA in the immune system had more than doubled in all of the 120 participants! So Goal number one of these seven days of content is to help you to increase your vibe. So you increase your immune system and stay more protected from this virus.
- Number two, I want to help you pivot. So if you’re in business and feeling the strain, I want to help you to be able to pivot, see the opportunities.
- And number three, I want to help you to make money, because right now, more than ever, we need to be making money. For many people options are being taken away in some, but I see this as an opportunity to rise. I had a really good conversation with a small business in my local community yesterday, who has had to shut their doors. And when I dug into that I actually helped him to see that the Coronavirus is going to help him solve some of the business issues that he’s always had because he finally has the opportunity and reason (and time) to look outside of the box. If you are in business, remember that right now – people are consuming more content online than they ever have before. Because people are looking to see news about the virus and waiting for people to make them feel certain in their business and in their health. Now is the time for you to show up. So how do you show up? How do you serve your audience? I’m going to be helping you with all of that in the group!
And thank you for your attention through this extraordinarily long blog!
