7 Poisons to Transform

This past Wednesday AM my life suddenly went on a new path as I was introduced to a program called The PTSD Project which is looking for "healing coaches" to be trained in a new modality called neurokinesis.  They are doing a 90 day study in hopes that insurance companies will support holistic approaches that are getting huge results since therapy has been ineffective for PTSD clients.  Earlier that Wednesday morning I was in conversation with John who I first met at one of my circles.  He is a life/biz coach and he was talking about what he calls the "7 deadly poisons," which are:

1)  Complaining

2)  Criticizing

3)  Condemning

4)  Resentment

5)  Resistance

6)  Revenge

7) Sarcasm

Having come from this conversation and jumping into HOURS of training videos the past four days, I could witness these 7 poisons popping up from the speaker who was training us (as amazing as she is) to trainees in the audience and etc.  It is simply a very human, common thing that we all catch ourselves doing on some level, but it sure is not serving us as we are no longer attractive and magnetic to others. We injure all of our relationships with others, our business, and our health and well-being as these "seven" certainly do not even feel good inside and lead to unpleasant physical manifestations in time.  In the work that I do, I truly shift/transform these things on a cellular level, but being that I am communicating via email, I will only address the mental level (awareness) unless of course you know how to tap out these 7 poisons in a healthy way and come up with a creative empowering solution.

 

In this newsletter, I will start with the first poison, complaining.  We have all witnessed other people complaining about their life even when they know that they are only creating a stronger signal to the Universe saying "give me more of what I don't like."  And at the same time, we probably don't notice our own complaints as much because they feel "legit" to us just as they do to other people who drive us crazy with their complaining and negativity.  The real truth is that any time we are complaining in an unhealthy way, we are sitting in victim consciousness which keeps us psychologically reversed.  Psychological reversal keeps us stuck where we are as it prevents transformation, healing, shifts, and miracles from taking place in our lives even if we want it on a conscious level.  

A better solution is to take personal responsibility for whatever is showing up (if applicable), see the situation as an opportunity to grow and spiral up (we DO have choice) or be in a space of accepting the current situation which you honestly acknowledge without a complaining energy.  That energy of acceptance with positive action will lead to a much quicker solution to whatever you are complaining about.

As Eckart Tolle said, "When you complain, you make yourself a victim.  Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it.  All else is madness."

I also love William Ward's quote, "The pessimist complains about the wind.  The optimist expects it to change.  The realist adjusts the sail."

And a final quote from Maya Angelou, "If you don't like something, change it.  If you can't change it, change your attitude.  Don't complain."

So lets forgive ourselves for our past complaints and move forward making the most out of all that we experience free of complaints and see how things shift for us.  In two weeks we will address criticizing others and ourselves and continue forward until we make our way down all 7 on the list!
