Did you try the mentality shield practice? It was the solution for dealing with negative people and irksome incidents.
Last time, I talked about 2 different ways to protect your mentality (also known as your vibration, thoughts or energy).
I promised I would tell you Zoë's version of the mentality shield. In case your new here, she's my 12 year old daughter.
First, though, a little background. Zoë is a remarkable person, if I do say so myself. Warning: Proud Mom Alert
She's incredibly wise, a deep thinker and very intuitive. She writes poetry and song lyrics that are well beyond her years.
She's one of those people who are really good at everything they try. When she did gymnastics, she got invited onto the competitive team. She does martial arts and got invited into the enrichment class. She started cross country running last year and recently won the City Championship for her age group.
At school, her teachers comment on her excellent leadership skills, her advanced...
As people are learning to increase their vibration and maintain it, I often hear the questions: What about the negative people in my life? What do I do to maintain my vibration and energy when I'm around them?
Earlier this year, I learned a practice that has answered that question for me. In fact, it's been one of the most powerful practices I've ever implemented. It's called a Mentality Shield.
The original idea came from the book 3 Simple Steps by Trevor Blake. For a deep discussion on the mentality shield, I highly recommend his book. It's been a game changer for my whole family.
The brief summary for the mentality shield is this: every morning, before you begin your day, imagine a large, thick-walled glass vessel descending from the sky to surround and protect you from any energy, comments, media, incidents or criticism that don't match your vibration.
When something ruffles your feathers, pushes your buttons or brings you down, imagine it bouncing off the walls of the...
Yesterday, I sent out a post about our family practice called Peacock Day. I had some questions come in and so I thought I would answer them today. (I can't tell you how lovely it is to receive questions, because it means that people are reading my writing. I'm so happy to answer questions!)
When we first started doing Peacock Days, we would do one a week, on Fridays. I scheduled them into our calendar to keep track. It looked something like this:
October 6: Paul
October 13: Christina
October 20: Zoë
October 27: Oakley
Makes sense, right?
We maintained that schedule diligently for over a year.
Nowadays, we don't do them every Friday. We do them mostly on Sunday mornings when we have a bit more time and we don't do them every week.
I have a recent experience to share with you about how powerful our Peacock Days continue to be.
The other day, I was getting ready for the Speakers Club that I facilitate and I had left it to the last minute. There were two talks I was supposed to...
