DEJAN DAVCEVSKI: “The 3 Best Mental Tools You Already Have That Will Help You Build A Better Life”

Most of us know how we want to live. We know exactly what we need to do, maybe even how, and yet less than 1% of the people are living on their terms. Why is this?

The short answer is that people lack proper education, nobody has told them that there are mental tools they can learn to use, nobody has showed them how.

Just like you need tools to build, for example a house, you need mental tools to build the reality you want to live in.

There are countless mental tools developed by people who were in desperate need of them. These people needed these tools so much that they created them to help themselves.

Before you go out exploring all the existing mental tools, here are the 3 best and most essential ones you will need to create a better life for yourself.

The 3 Best Mental Tools To Build Better Life:


1. The 5 Second Rule.

Most of you know “The 5 Second Rule” to be something that applies to food that you might have dropped. But this is a different rule.

This is a mental tool developed by TV host, author and motivational speaker Mel Robbins and it’s the main thing that helped her rise even higher when she was hitting rock bottom.

This so called “5 Second Rule” is really simple. All it means is that whenever you want, or need, or should do something, count from 5 to 1 and lift off into action.

Mel first started using this mental tool in the mornings, when she felt like not getting out of bed. She started counting 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and on 1, without thinking, she just got up.

The truth is, you will never going to feel like it’s the perfect moment for taking action. However, with this simple tool you will have mental leverage to launch yourself into action.

2. Turn ANTs Into PETs.

So, of course, we are not talking about actual ants. ANT is short for Automatic Negative Thoughts and PET is short for Positive Encouraging Thoughts.

Dr. Daniel G. Amen got the idea when his home was infested with ants. He looked at the real ants and realized that most people have minds that are infested with negative thoughts.

Most of us think the same 90% of the thoughts every day, and most of these thoughts are negative. There are over 20 mental distortions that twist our reality to seem more negative.

There is an easy tool that Dr. Daniel developed, to turn ANTs into PETs, and it’s in a form of asking yourself 5 simple questions whenever you notice a negative thought.

Is the negative thought true? Can I absolutely know that it is true? How do I react when I feel this thought? Who would I be without this thought? What’s the opposite thought?

3. What’s Pulling, What’s Pushing?

If you are like most of us, you have had a dilemma when you didn’t know what to choose between two or more choices. Most of us have such dilemmas daily.

And this is normal. However, most people don’t really know how to choose the best out of all their conflicting options.

There is a simple mental tool you can use, in a form of 2 simple questions that will clarify so many things for you.

Whenever in a dilemma between two choices ask yourself “What’s pulling me in that direction, love or fear, abundance or scarcity?”

Now ask yourself “What’s pushing me in the opposite direction, love or fear, abundance or scarcity?” Choose the options that are inspired by abundance and love.

JUDI LYNCH: “Practicing Spiritual Optimism”

“Learning how to live in the light of the spiritual consciousness while still in human form on the Earth is no easy task. How do we balance these two worlds together so that it makes sense?”

~Judi Lynch

 

The Earth needs our Spiritual Optimism now to create the energy to heal it. If we know right and wrong in our humanity, if it is possible to become part of the human mind to inherit not to hurt another living being, then let that spiritual optimism be our goal.

Practicing Spiritual Optimism

Have you ever known someone who, no matter what you say, continues to respond negatively to your suggestions after asking you for advice? Even if it appears they are destined to complain for a lifetime, remember that your words may just take more time to sink in. You might hear later, “I thought about what you said.” Also, there is more than just one answer to a life challenge, and the solution depends on the person along with the unique circumstances they are facing. We as humans operate on different levels of understanding. It’s not a judgment of good or better but of vibration, soul level, and maturity. We are on this Earth in a giant classroom filled with every ridiculous mixture of blood, bones, and consciousness through zillions of lifetimes spinning along in our own little universe. How do we stay optimistic when there is a divide, unrest, and hatred all around us?

Energy is something we can take responsibility for. Optimism creates an energy of hope and manifestation. If we want to manifest success and true ability to assist others in raising their vibration, it is imperative that we learn to control our energy fields. If we are still bitter, unforgiving, judgmental or seeking revenge, we will create a very shaky ground in which to walk our talk of living in loving spirit. If we could only look at someone and see the beauty of their face. The trueness of their heart through their soulful eyes, reading their words of pain and cry in empathy for what they have endured, we are learning. We learn how to recognize these feelings because we have felt them in the past and we sought out ways to heal them. We hold space for their tears. We also know that there is healing in letting those feelings evolve into a higher form of learning. Forgiveness, clarity, acceptance, compassion, and charity. Not only for others but for ourselves as well.

Spiritual Optimism is learning to flow with the lessons and glow with the blessings. If we are aware of our thoughts, words, and actions concerning our challenges, we can stop the self-doubt and criticism from bringing us and our vibration down. It’s okay to feel angry. It’s okay to feel slighted sometimes. It’s holding onto the feelings and letting them define us that makes us pessimistic. Anyone who tells you that thoughts don’t matter or that we are destined to live as our ancestors are listening to the voice of negativity. Soul mastery takes courage and perseverance. It takes a big heart but well worth the investment.

Learning how to live in the light of the spiritual consciousness while still in human form on the Earth is no easy task. How do we balance these two worlds together so that it makes sense? Very carefully it seems. If we go running off on cloud nine because we can feel the spirit, Intuit for others and heal by channeling energy then forget to pay the electric bill, it will get mighty cold in the house. If we know, there is more to this life than traffic jams, mean people and yes, bills, we are blessed to be sure. Many people have no clue what they are doing, why they are here or how they got here. It doesn’t mean they won’t learn over a lifetime of love, mistakes, missteps, crazy adventures and misguided fortune hunting.

Knowing what you believe in can help keep you optimistic as well. It gives you a base of peace to know that you have purpose and meaning. Helping others not because you were asked to but because it is a part of who you are. The human mind intertwined with the soul spinning in harmony and balance is the real power in our spiritual evolution. How long it takes us to get there is an arguable subject. The Earth needs our optimism now to create the energy to heal it.

The energy of hope can permeate the minds of those who have the power to help change it. If we understand this, we understand how history can be used about what to and what “not” to do. If we know right and wrong in our humanity, if it is possible to become part of the human mind to inherit not to hurt another living being, then let that optimism be our goal.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “What is Zero Point Perspective? Exploring the 3 Mental Bodies”

Meditation-16-700x325.png

The best way I have heard the Zero Point Perspective described came from a healer at retreat who compared the experience to being on a merry-go-round. When standing on the outer edge, you have to concentrate to hang on; however, when you place yourself at the center of the ride, it takes almost no effort, if any, to exist there – soaking in the 360-degree views all around you.

This point is the Zero Point, the exact center point that allows us to stay relaxed and centered regardless of how fast our world is spinning. Life challenges our balance – key to attaining this perspective – we are continually responding to outside stimulus in response to the quickening and ever-changing speed of life. Therein lays the question, “How can we achieve Zero Point Perspective in our lives?”

The Three Mental Bodies – Using the Mind as a Tool for Ascension

Mastering the mind – body connection is one of the greatest tools you have to discovering your true self, your essence as it was before your consciousness chose to incarnate in its current human avatar form. As a tool, the mind comprised of the three mental bodies uses imagery and thoughts that ultimately create quantum level blueprints. These blueprints are your manifestations of form and experience, so when the mental bodies are balanced, the mind runs under the consciousness of your higher, or True Self. When out of balance, the term ‘lost your mind’ becomes applicable as the mind is operating with no guidance of the True Self.

The Negative Mind is the Protective Mind

The negative mind serves to keep your expanded essence inside the physical body, or contained, as this vessel protects the form by ensuring it survives your experiences. The negative mind sees risks; hence it’s known as the Protective Mind and is the contractive essence of the mind. When underdeveloped, strong fears can arise as can poor judgment in life and relationships. Zero Point Perspective can only be attained when the negative mind is balanced and flowing with the other two mental bodies coherently.

The Positive Mind as the Projective Mind

The positive mind helps us express ourselves through our physical bodies, putting our essence out into the world and the universe. When out of balance, the positive mind can become overwhelmed with negativity, feel depressed, or make us feel like we’ve ‘lost our power.’ It can go into craving as it over expands, fueling addictions or resurfacing of old ones. As the expansive part of the mind, it seeks and sees the positive aspects in all situations, giving one a good sense of humor, open communication, and optimism. It is because the positive and negative minds are bombarded with incoming stimulus that makes the neutral mind so intrinsic to discovering the essence of Zero Point Perspective.

The Meditative Mind is Neutral

The mental body that holds the polarities in balance is the Neutral, or Meditative Mind – the balanced mind. This aspect recognizes that souls are contracted into physical form as well as expanded into everything and oneness. It harbors information from the other two mental bodies and is the decision maker from an objective stance. The Neutral Mind is your intuition and compassion, and when underdeveloped or imbalanced, one may have trouble seeing beyond their troubles and feel victimized.

Zero Point Perspective – You Already Have it… So Experience It

Achieving a sense of Zero Point Perspective takes time, practice, and true desire to see things for what they are. You must reach into your heart and mind, explore the aspects of your three mental bodies to discover how you can bring these better into balance. Meditation is an excellent practice for such exploration, and stones for meditation can elevate your quantum vibrational levels for even greater awareness of the Zero Point Perspective.
