Most of what’s on my Facebook Page is positive affirmations from various friends and colleagues. This of course makes sense since I own a yoga studio and teach several classes a week. However, what I’m realizing about this feel good world is that no one is talking about how to really incorporate these positive vibes into your body and not just your mind because there is something that happens after we speak the good stuff that no one is talking about and it creates a terrible obstacle to changing your life experience.
1. The Back Talk– You will experience this immediately after your positive affirmation. It’s the voice that says, “that’s silly no you can’t.” “Yea right.” “Forget it that’s never going to happen.” You need to know to be prepared for this. Expect your lower mind to bring up excuses to keep you where you are. Change is scary for the ego because its main job is to keep the status quo.
2. Back Lash – This is when the back talk has integrated itself into your physical world. Back lash is when something good happens to you and you can’t hold it. For example you identify that something good has happened to you. Say you found a $20 bill in an old wallet. This is great, you’re excited, and later that day you trip and fall on your knees. Then you begin to justify the bad experience with the good one. Basically saying “see I told you not to get excited.” “You were too happy.” “This is karma.” “You should of given that money away.” No this is the energy of the back talk playing itself out. We set ourselves up to prove that we are unworthy and shouldn’t take joy in things. We don’t deserve to be happy. So the cycle begins. We do our affirmations, we don’t believe them and then we prove to ourselves that they don’t work.
3. The Witness – This is the stage where things get exciting. When we cultivate witnessing our mind and thoughts we can easily catch the back talk and see the ego cycle playing itself out. Then when good things happen to us we can take it in and say yes this is great I deserve this and consciously be prepared for the events and belief systems that are waiting at the helm to take us down. So when you feel that negativity creep up on you, you know you must have done something good for yourself.
Don’t just say the affirmations and try to feel them you also have to be an ego slayer. Prepare for the evil twins Back Talk and Back Lash. Witness consciousness is your kryptonite. Your ego and negative mind is Lex Luthor trying to take over your entire world. Call on your witness to destroy the misguided ego. The world is safe and good and loving you every second even when it isn’t it still is cause this ride it temporary and we aren’t human forever so enjoy every last happy rocky road of it.
