Competing – Quickie with Rob

Competing – Quickie with Rob

In this episode Christy and Rob discuss:

  • Comparing lives with others on social media 
  • Turning comparison into inspiration 
  • What lack and limitation does to our life

Key Takeaways: 

  • Competing and comparing happens full-blown in social media since people often post the high points of their lives. So whenever you look in your social media feed, you’ll see that everybody around you seems to be living their best life. 
  • When you see somebody succeed, especially in something that’s related to your dream, be happy for them. Use their story as an inspiration, as an encouragement that you can do it too!
  • Lack and limitation never feels good. When looking at other people’s lives makes us feel like we’re not enough, our creativity and joy is constricted. We don’t get to enjoy life. 

 

“We could have everything that we have in our lives, we just have to believe it so and start to focus on that.” – Christy Whitman

The Gift of Anxiety

When you’re in the middle of an anxious moment, anxiety feels like anything but a gift.  But once you understand what it’s trying to tell you, you’ll appreciate the gift of anxiety and can use it to your benefit.

 

Anxiety is simply a messenger. And once we receive the message it’s trying to convey, the energy of it naturally releases from our system.  

 

Unfortunately, most of the time, we shoot the messenger.

 

Most of us do not regard anxiety as a gift.  In fact, we usually resist, it fight against it, and try to get it to go away.  We talk ourselves out of it, distract ourselves from it, or take steps to silence it.  And what happens when we try to resist a sensation that’s arising from within?  Of course, the message keeps getting louder and louder until we finally pay attention.  

 

Understand that anxiety is an indicator, not an actual emotion. 

It’s easier to receive the gifts of anxiety when you realize that anxiety is not actually an emotion.  Rather, it’s an indication that there are emotions within us that we haven’t allowed ourselves to feel or express.  

 

Anxiety is like a protective mechanism that temporarily shields us from becoming overwhelmed with deeper emotions, such as anger or sadness.  

 

But to find relief, we have to look below that protective layer to discover the source of what’s really going on.  Once we do, we can benefit from that wisdom and receive the gift of anxiety.  

 

Here are 3 important ways that anxiety arises in order to serve you:

 

Anxiety Gift #1:  Anxiety gets you to pay attention.

 

The energy of anxiety is kind of like a fire alarm. It goes off to let you know that some important aspect of you or your life needs attention. 

 

So to receive this gift, you want to really give yourself some time to check in with yourself, rather than brushing the sensation aside.

 

This is as simple as taking a minute to close your eyes and taking some slow, deep breaths.  Withdraw your attention from your surroundings and tune in with what’s happening in your inner world.  

 

Really try to be curious about the sensations that are moving through you.  And as you notice any areas of tension or constriction, see if you can go deeper than the anxiety. Allow yourself to connect with the underlying emotion it’s calling your attention to.    

 

Anxiety Gift #2:  Anxiety arises to signal a block in your energy.

Emotions are simply energy in motion.  And anxiety is an indication of a block or a repression of that normal flow of emotional energy.  So once you’re present with the underlying emotions that are blocked, grant them permission to exist, instead of pushing the sensation aside.

 

See if you can accept however you are feeling in the moment, knowing that emotions are nothing more than waves of energy.  

 

Rather than trying to figure out the cause or assign blame for how you’re feeling, shift your attention from your mind to your heart.  Feel your connection to All That Is, to the life force energy that underlies every living thing. This life force energy creates and sustains all things, and connects you to the universe itself.  

 

Allow your personal energy field to become entrained and aligned with the pure, divine source that sustains you.  And remind yourself that you can’t be focused within this high frequency energy and in a state of discord at the same time.   

 

Anxiety Gift #3:  Anxiety reminds us to focus on what it is we desire, not on what we don’t want.     

 

The final message that anxiety brings us is one of self-empowerment.  Because whenever we’re feeling anxious, one thing is sure:  We’re focusing more on what we don’t want than what we do. 

 

So the next time you’re having an anxious moment, remind yourself that you have the power to deliberately direct your focus.  You can complain about problems or you can envision their solutions. You can focus on what’s missing from your life, or on the areas where you are incredibly abundant.  

 

Remember that energy flows in the direction that our attention goes. So decide on the quality of vibration that you would like to bring into your physical and mental body and put your attention there!  All it takes is for you to place 51% of your attention on what you desire for your entire mood and energy to flip.  

 

You can imagine the energies of joy, expansion, ease, connection, well-being – whatever you are needing in that moment – pouring from your divine source into you. And just feel this frequency soothing and uplifting every dimension of your being.  

 

And finally, do something nice for yourself that anchors this new frequency into your energy body in a concrete way. Take a hot bath, go for a walk in nature, watch a funny movie, pet your dog or cat.  Stretch out for a few minutes, or take some time to think about something pleasant that you’re looking forward to. 

 

Remember that you are the one who sets the energetic tone for your life, and you can choose whatever energy you desire.  Every time anxiety arises within you, just know that it’s pointing you back toward this truth.

Anxiety – How To Get Past It

In this episode Christy and The Council discuss:

  • Understanding the signals 
  • The origin of anxiety 
  • Channeling compassion 

Key Takeaways: 

  • We all have a different approach to anxiety, most people do something that will remove it but there is a more effective approach than just suppressing it. By understanding that anxiety is information that something is going under the surface, you’ll be able to shift the energy into abundance and light. 
  • There are two reasons why you feel anxiety in your life. First, it’s because an emotion that must be expressed is being suppressed and second, it’s not because you focus on the past but because you project into the future. 
  • Channel the energy of compassion. Imagine that feeling you have for a beloved child or a beloved pet, give yourself that kind of love and compassion. Step into your divine design of wellbeing.

Perspective Is Everything

When it comes to your happiness and abundance in life, perspective is absolutely everything.  

Why?

Because what you experience as the reality of your daily life is created, by you, from within.  Everything you manifest or don’t manifest in your life flows directly from the way you perceive things.

 

Our moment-to-moment experience is the direct result of our perception. So, whether we’re feeling inspired or depressed; blessed or burdened, is not the product of the circumstances we find ourselves in.  

 

In reality, our happiness has nothing to do with the behavior of those around us.  But it has everything to do with the way we are choosing to perceive the people and circumstances around us.

 

When you really understand just how powerful your perspective is, you will never feel like a victim again.  Or, if you do, you’ll very quickly be able to put yourself back into the driver’s seat of your own life.  

 

These 3 principles will help you to embody the universal principle that perspective is everything:

 

Principle #1: Perception equals reality.

 

This may sound like a big statement, so let’s break it down.

 

Your perspective – meaning, the way you choose to look at things – directly impacts every dimension of your being.  It influences your mood, your attitude, your expectations, your beliefs, your thoughts, your emotions, and ultimately, your actions. And of course, your actions determine the results and outcomes you create.  


It’s like a domino effect. The last domino to fall represents the results you create or don’t create in your life.  But that whole sequence of events starts with the way you’re perceiving whatever situation you currently find yourself in. 

 

So for example, if you perceive that your co-workers are critical or unaccepting of you, this perception will directly impact your mood.   Depending on how you’re wired, this perception may lead you to feel defensive, defeated, or sad.  Or you might feel indignant, angry, determined to win their approval, or a whole other range of other moods and emotions.  

 

This mood or emotion then influences your thoughts, and your habitual thoughts harden into beliefs.  And all of this affects the actions you take or are too afraid or discouraged to take.

 

And so, this entire cascade of reactions – what we call the process of creation – begins with your perception.  Perception is everything because it affects every stage of manifestation that comes after it.  

 

Principle #2:  There are two primary perspectives available in every moment.

As human beings, we are born with the gift of free will.  Which means we can choose to look at life through our human eyes, or through the eyes of the divine.

 

Our human perspective is often one of limitation, constriction, scarcity, and pessimism.  This is because all of us have had painful or contrasting experiences in our lives that left impressions on us, psychologically and energetically.  And at any moment in time, we can choose to view our present reality through the lens of our past wounding.  And when we do, possibilities shrink, we feel terrible, and the world looks like a hostile place.  

 

But when we choose to view life through the eyes of the universal intelligence that creates and sustains all things, an entirely different picture of reality is revealed.  

 

The divine perspective is always looking for possibilities and solutions.

 

It sees the opportunities and resources that are always a part of whatever situation we find ourselves in.  

 

When we consciously look through the perspective of the divine, we become a magnet for all cooperative energies, ideas, and resources that can support our greatest joy.

 

The final principle to help you embrace that perspective is everything is this:

 

Principle #3: You have the power to choose your perception on purpose.  

 

The circumstances you find yourself in do not have to control the way you feel.  Rather, you have the power to affect your own mood and attitude by deliberately choosing your perspective.  

 

In any moment, you can make the choice to bring into yourself a higher, more hopeful vibration.   You can make an effort to view any situation from a more positive vantage point.  In every moment, you have the power to decide between giving into fear or choosing faith.

 

A great way of immediately shifting your perspective is to ask yourself, “What would love to have happen in this situation?” or, “What can I find to appreciate about this situation as it exists right now?” 

 

By virtue of the direction of your focus, you’re either nourishing your fears or your desires. 

And when you realize you’re more aware of what you don’t want than what you do, deliberately recalibrate your focus. 

 

Engaging the power of your perspective takes a little practice, and it takes a little discipline to not automatically give in to thoughts of lack or scarcity.  But the more you play with shifting your perspective on purpose, the more powerful of a deliberate creator you will know yourself to be.
