Part I Recap
In Part I I talked about comparisonitis as being a conditioned behaviour. Firstly, we are conditioned by a society that places merit on external validation, on recognisable achievements and awards. And secondly, by the beliefs, ideas and expectations imposed on us by our parents, peers and teachers, particularly when we are young and most impressionable.
In Part II we learn that comparisonitis is also a poverty mentality.
Comparisonitis as a Lack Mindset
When we make comparisons we do so from a perspective of lack. This is the notion that if someone else does well or has more success in their business, they somehow take away our potential to do well or have success. I see others, including some of my clients, say that they can’t be in the same group as other coaches or business women, because they are all fishing in the same pond, looking for the same clients. They endorse the belief that there aren’t enough to go around.
It is my job to educate them about the mindset of lack and how this is self-fulfilling. I help them break the stranglehold of that belief and switch to an abundance mindset. Most of this poverty mindset loops back to this feeling of not being worthy, of not being good enough and breeds jealousy: wanting to have that special X factor someone else has. Lack of self-love and appreciation as well as envy are very restrictive emotions that contract our energy. By emitting a negative electromagnetic frequency, we become our own worst enemy and our own undoing. Underpinning this is the Law of Attraction, which works 24/7/365. What we emit energetically, we attract back into our lives.
So to summarise, a poverty mindset is founded on two core beliefs that:
- resources are limited – that there’s never enough to go around; and
- there’s something missing in us to achieve success – that we have to look outside to up-level our skills, knowledge and capabilities.
That’s why so many high-achievers are perpetual learners and put off getting “out there”, doing their wonderful bit for the world. They hide behind the false mask of perfectionism and convince themselves that they are not good enough as they are. I totally get that: I’m still learning to let go of some of the crud conditioning that has been banked up by lots of layers of unhelpful and limiting beliefs. It takes time to peel away those layers to reveal the truth beneath.
Exploring Quantum Physics & The Subconscious Mind
The pivotal learning from Part I and Part II of this blog sequence is that conditioned behaviour and scarcity mindset deny the existence of a quantum universe where everything is subjective (not objective) and that we are the (co-)creators of our reality. If you knew that negative energy attracts more negativity into your life, why entertain the notion that you are not good enough, that you’ll never aspire to be, have and do more? Just by flicking the belief switch from a mindset of lack to a mindset of abundance, we can very soon think a new and positive reality into being.
So what’s stopping you? A subconscious mind that functions on efficiency to keep you stuck in habituated beliefs and behaviours. This is because the (ancient) subconscious mind carries out a dual function of survival and efficiency. Therefore, it will perpetuate habits that keep us on known, familiar territory (where we can survive free of threats), rather than venturing into unknown terrain, which we haven’t explored yet and could put our lives in jeopardy.
So if you’re stuck in a comparisonitis cycle that perpetuates the notion of there not being enough (whether in relation to your external or your internal environment), and you’re feeling inadequate, worthless and dejected as a result, it’s imperative for you to release these negative beliefs and emotions, blatant and latent, in order to be happy, fulfilled and successful in life. Part III (the final chapter) of this blog sequence, will provide advice on how we can effectively overcome these limiting beliefs. I’ll also be talking about the role of love in our conditioning.
What are the Eternal Truths?
The eternal truths are that:
- the Universe is limitless and abundant
- we each are unique and have our own special talents and abilities (our fingerprint is a sign that we are made to matter, we have an imprint that no else has)
- our perfectly made-for-us (soul-aligned) clients already exist and are out there, waiting for us to call them in by stepping into our powers of self-realisation and self-belief
- we are called to matter and make a difference and bring more meaning to a world which has lost its spiritual path.
If you’re not fulfilling your life’s purpose, you are a vital missing piece of the jigsaw in the energetic up-levelling and consciousness of the planet. If you need help to find or rather remember your truth path, you only have to reach out and connect: https://calendly.com/esther-788/30min.
