Finding The Positive With A Global Tribe
Something truly magical happens when you can begin to see the positive in any situation.
Whether you contemplate changing careers post-divorce to something you are passionate about, rediscovering your inner peace and spirituality, or decide it’s time to invest in you to bring out the best of what you have to offer, more than three million people around the world are finding everything they need in the Mindvalley community.
Founded by Vishen Lakhiani, Mindvalley is touted as a university for the modern age, where you connect online as well as through live curricula and events.
The Mindvalley Academy is designed to benefit your mind, health, relationships, performance and business prowess with practical advice and tools that will be of immense benefit while navigating your way through and beyond a separation or divorce.
A far cry from academic learning by rote, Mindvalley courses are developed by the best teachers in the world and pulled together by a team of 200 people from 40 different countries.
One of the core meditation teachings through Mindvalley is awareness around negativity.
Allowing yourself to accept negativity without question can impact relationships with your ex, friends, family and even work colleagues because you are allowing yourself to be governed by emotions without taking charge of them.
Emily Fletcher, who has a free Masterclass on Meditation for Super Performance in the Mindvalley Academy, shares these tips on how to control your emotions and break free from a negative downward spiral will help you start to take control back.
First of all – smile. While it can feel like the last thing you want to do, it is physiologically impossible to have bad
feelings while you are smiling. So go on, give it a try.
Secondly, meditate. If you haven’t done it for a while, pick it back up. Or if this is a new concept for you, now is the perfect time to try.
Simply ‘being’ and focusing on your breathing for a few minutes without distractions can be enough to cause a shift in your mood.
Next, you can implement the 90-second rule. That is, whenever a negative emotion hits, give it a minute-and-a-half to pass through your system.
The final tip is to do what you love, because when you are immersed in an activity that you find joy and passion in, you will feel uplifted and fulfilled.
By empowering yourself with the knowledge to control your emotions, rather than letting them run riot with you day in, day out, you will become a stronger and more resilient person who is capable of taking on anything that life throws your way.
Better yet, by joining a global community like Mindvalley while you undergo this self-development, you will be connected with like-minded individuals of all ages and backgrounds who are embarking on their own journey.
Last year, thousands of Mindvalley Academy courses were cut by 90% to just 15 and the team began building new courses to make up a total of 30.
Why? Because Mr Lakhiani says they became obsessed with providing the perfect personal development courses.
“We decided to focus on offering the best courses with the best authors and take what we were creating to a whole new level of artistry to make it the best of its kind on the planet,” he says.
Authors now include Robin Sharma, Donna Eden, Neale Donald Walsch of Conversations with God, Don Miguel Ruize, who wrote some of the greatest spiritual works of our generation and the legacy of Alan Watts and Jose Silva.
“All of these legendary teachers are now collaborating with the Mindvalley Academy to bring new visions of learning and advancing human potential to the world,” Mr Lakhiani says.
This obsession has been one of the most fun obsessions I’ve had in my life because it’s given new meaning to the work I do, it’s making me feel energized, getting out of bed every morning and creating things again, growing a whole new energy.”
“We want to be part of the world’s greatest personal growth revolution in human history over the next decade.”
