We’ve all heard it before. Keep your thoughts positive so you can experience what you desire. Everyone recommends it, but how do you maintain a positive mindset?
Here’s the problem. You’re working hard towards your goals, but still feel stressed, stuck and unhappy. Whether you want a new job, real love or just a life with less stress, your deep desires are most likely peace, ease and freedom. If so, maintaining a positive mindset will help you achieve your deep desires.
Here are my 5 self-loving tips for how empaths and highly-sensitives can maintain a positive mindset.
1. Develop Trust.
Trust on two levels.
The first level is trusting that the Universe, Source/God, and your Angels and Guides are all conspiring to support you to achieve your desires. When we truly trust our spiritual team we feel safe and secure and we can relax and go with the flow because we know we do not have to do it all on our own.
The second level is trusting yourself. This means trusting that you know what’s best for you and trusting that your intuition is leading you to a path of fulfillment and happiness. Oftentimes, we get intuitive ideas and inspirations that sound truly great but we don’t follow through because we don’t trust them. We fear that if we follow them we will be disappointed. Sometimes this is because in the past we tried something we thought we would like that didn’t work out the way we expected. Or it could have to do with cultural belief systems and societal norms — if our idea is seen as normal and acceptable by those around us. If our idea isn’t seen as “normal” we worry that it will flop, just like we imagine everyone would expect it to.
Trusting yourself and your intuition is so important. We all have a unique purpose that’s why we are each unique. So, getting an idea that no one else has is a good thing. Just because it’s unique doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It may be part of our individual purpose. We are meant to implement our ideas, or at least to bring them forward, without fear. That is the only way to bring about change and solutions. So, trust those seemingly weird ideas you may have. They just might help others if you follow them!
2. Feel Worthy.
This is huge. We have to feel worthy of our desires for them to manifest. Plain and simple. If we don’t feel worthy of something, even if we get it, we often will sabotage it out of insecurity.
Take time to notice how you view yourself and how open you are to receiving good things effortlessly. Do you feel uncomfortable imagining that you’re receiving good things without struggling for them? Realizing how you value yourself and what you feel worthy and deserving of is so important so that you can build up your self-worth so that you can achieve your dreams and desires.
3. Feel Empowered.
This has to do with believing in yourself and being able to rely on yourself. Do you believe that you’re capable of following through on your desires and inspiration? This isn’t so much about trusting yourself to follow through. It’s about believing you are capable of doing something all on your own that has never been done before. Even if it’s small, if you don’t know anyone else who has done the thing you wish, you wonder if you are truly capable.
If you don’t believe that you can do something, you either won’t even try to do it or you will sabotage your own efforts by letting your feelings of powerlessness overcome you. For instance, you’ll attempt to put effort in doing a project, but your fears and disbelief in your own abilities will cause you to miss important aspects. If you had complete faith in yourself, felt confident and capable in your abilities, you would approach the project calmly and with a clear mind so that you would most easily see the best way to tackle it. Fears, feeling powerless and disbelief in our own abilities can cloud our minds. They can make us act much differently than if we were confident and felt empowered and capable.
4. Daily Energy Clearing
A daily energy clearing practice can be something very simple that you do each morning as a guided meditation or by yourself as an exercise that you follow. It’s literally just imagining that your energy field is completely cleared of anything that doesn’t serve you and that it’s filled back up with pure source light so you have no impurities in you. Negativity, worry, anxiety, anger, other people’s energy, things that you might have absorbed from stressful environments or situations that you have been in, all of that, just clear it out.
Clearing your energy daily helps you create a positive mindset because you’re releasing all those fears, anxieties, feelings of unworthiness, disempowerment and disbelief in yourself. You can release all of that by clearing your energy regularly.
As you release these energies, emotions and unsupportive belief systems, you’ll feel more freedom because there will no longer be energies, thoughts or emotions working against you. Daily energy clearing helps you get back into trust, flow, feeling worthy, capable and empowered.
5. Daily Grounding
Grounding helps us to focus our energy. Grounding yourself and grounding your energy daily is so important. It’s so important to focus our energy on what we want and desire as well as focus all of our energy back into our body so that we can use all of our energy to create our desires. With our energy focused, we can create it into physical form as opposed to our ideas just staying in the mind and staying in the imagination. Grounding helps us actually take action on all of our desires. It also helps us feel more supported so we trust and feel more worthy, and the focused energy helps us feel more empowered and capable.
I’d love to hear from you. Do you have any daily mindset practices? Do you clear your energy and ground daily? If not, are you going to start a practice?
