10 Tips to Elevate Your Mind

We are surrounded by all sorts of communication, so you must choose what you are willing to believe. In spite of what you may hear on the news, the economy is not affecting everyone, because people are still buying and selling. It is all about what you think.

Most of what is broadcasted is associated with fear. Fear is a powerful force, but not as strong as your love for the passion that lights you up. What causes your heart to leap? That is your passion. Do not allow fear to hinder you from achieving your goals.

Choose to dismiss that negative mindset, of what is being blasted across the airwaves, or in general conversation. Trust me; there is enough abundance in this world for everyone. There are no shortages, just lack of knowledge in how to obtain.

Do this exercise. If you are going through a trying time – tap into your innermost being and the answer will be there. Follow it and you will release yourself from that bondage. If it is financial, take inventory of your talents, and skills and use them to obtain extra money. Wealth is on the inside of every one of us.

Here is an example, your friends may enjoy your cooking, because you go all out and invite them over to sample new dishes you have prepared. So, why not start your business? You have been thinking about it, for a long time. It was your dream, as a child, but you allowed that dream to become encumbered. It is not too late to pick up where you left off. You may just start out gathering business from word of mouth, but later your business will flourish, because it is your dream. Hundreds of people have started their empires from their kitchen table. The exposure of the internet is a good source to gain customers.

This is a clue to help you when you going through, and may not recognize that this is a turning point in your life. Dreams are always evident in a difficult situation. Confusion and difficulties are birth as a result of not recognizing your season of change. Instead of worrying and stressing out just tap inside of yourself. Find out what is your passion. Pursue it and follow the pathway to your dream. Embrace your season of change.

Abundance and lack are choices. You choose how you live, and what comes into your life, by your thought patterns. You were created to be the head, and not the tail, prosperous and have good success, above only and not beneath. Stop settling for less. This is your time to launch forth into your dream.

Find the strength within yourself to let go. Believe me. When you come to a point of change in your life, there is no turning back. You have come to the end of yourself where you say, “Enough is enough I can no longer keep living this way.”

I have been right where you are. I know how it feels to view life through a window of a train just passing by, and feeling an empty void. On the inside of you there is greatness. Square up your shoulders, look in a mirror and stare deep into your eyes, which are the windows of your soul. Declare to yourself that today is your day for a new beginning, and you have the power to create the life that you want through the thoughts in your mind. You are a creator. You have what you think, say and do. Choose wisely. Think wisely. Speak wisely.

Many people do not recognize their creative abilities. Looking back, how many times you worried about something happening, and it happened just the way you expected it to happen. So, why not change this thought pattern to expecting things to work out for the best? It takes the same energy to expect a favorable outcome, as to expect something unfavorable. Again you choose.

Here are 10 tips that will help you in the process:

1.) Elevate your mind, by having a good attitude, like that commercial A positive attitude will help you see opportunities in this transition stage of your life.

2.) Write down your vision or your dream. Make it concrete. When you have it only in your mind it’s a fantasy. Give your dream life, by writing it down in detail.

3.) Write down and set your goals daily, and complete them. Only write down what you can accomplish for that day. It helps you to remain focused, and builds integrity. If you cannot complete your list, start out the next day with those items, and finish them first.

4.) Take inventory of yourself. See what is working and what is obsolete, and replace with freshness and newness. Sometimes you may have to revamp how you are doing things.

5.) Have an attitude of gratitude, for what you already have. Be thankful. Keep it tidy, and clean. Do not despise humble beginnings; if that is where you are at now, do your best to live in excellence, put forth your best effort.

6.) Meditate and visualize yourself operating in your dream in detail. See it. Feel it. Express it. Speak it. Live it. Walk it out daily.

7.) Start cleaning out the clutter. Make room for your new season. Give away excess stuff you are not using. Replace or repair broken things. Clean your surroundings.

The above actions produce these results:

a.) Builds self-esteem

b.) Lifts your energy level

c.) Helps you to focus

d.) Places things in motion

8.) Every day do this: Live a piece of your dream to the fullest. Contribute your best every day. Impact this world with your gifts, talents and abilities.

9.) Help someone obtain their dreams and in turn you will step into yours.

10.) Expect good things to happen. See it vividly in detail, and feel the joy and satisfaction within you.

Make a firm decision that allows for no turning back, remove everything off of your plate that hinders you physically, mentally, and spiritually from living your dream. Maybe you are doing something now that should have ended a long time ago, and you feel a sense of guilt if you stop…do yourself a favor…let it go. Times and seasons change.

Once you have done this clearing process, it will feel as if a window is open, with a fresh breeze blowing through a crisp sheer curtain. You will feel connected with your inner strength, your energy level will be raised, opportunities linked to your dream will appear out of the blue, and best of all money will begin to flow your way.

Tap into your true self, and find your purpose, and not what someone else expects of you. When you do this, it will unlock the dreams in your heart to live your life to the fullest.

Having a Complex: A Short Explanation of Psychological Complexes

In ordinary daily conversation when someone observes that a friend, family member or colleague “has a complex” about something, we generally mean that they seem to have a “sore spot” about the subject, or that they seem to have a recognizable pattern of reactions when certain situations or subjects arise.

These are good layman’s observations which capture two of the most central qualities of what psychologists call “complexes”

1. They are developed around psychological wounds.

2. They have a repetitive, stereotypical quality.

Carl Jung describes complexes

The first psychologist to describe and discuss this psychological phenomenon was Carl Jung. Jung wrote about what he called “feeling-toned complexes of ideas”. The phrase was later abbreviated to “complexes”.

His original description however, adds an important further detail to our understanding of the complex.

3. Complexes have a particular emotional tone or value.

Complexes can be personal or impersonal.

There are certain situations which are so common and universal in human experience that in all times and all places, human beings seem to have evolved complexes of ideas and behaviors around them.

Archetypal complexes are not personal. They arise around essential human experiences such as leadership, romantic love, death, birth, the image of the hero, the trickster, the wise man or woman, the child and many others.

  • Our organized emotional and behavioral responses to these concepts suggests that they are inherent or instinctive patterns of reaction in human beings.

Personal complexes have both a universal and an individual aspect

Sigmund Freud’s famous Oedipus and Electra complexes describe the universal tensions within the parent-child relationship as the child becomes aware the limits and restrictions in regards to their intimate relationship with their opposite sex parent. The intensity and problem producing quality of this universal experience will vary depending on the real life characteristics of the parents and the family situation.

  • Fears of losing love and support of parents, feeling inferior, feelings of competition with siblings or peers, fears of being rejected or outcast from the group are universally frightening situations that need to be defended against psychologically by all human beings.

Because complexes are organized around a particular emotional tone, they can be positive or negative.

For example:

  • A positive mother complex expects all older women or “motherly” figures to be loving and helpful, but a negative mother complex treats all the women who trigger it as bad, demanding or dangerous.
  • A complex about authority can automatically treat authority figures positively as saviors or, negatively as exploiters.

How does a personal psychological complex develop?

A personal complex is a defense system that we develop after an emotional injury. It is a set of ideas, attitudes, expectations, behaviors… and the feelings that accompany them… that we unconsciously hope will avert a similar disaster in the future.

The typical behavioral strategies developed within complexes are common strategies of human relating:

Pleasing, appeasing, avoiding, aggressiveness, competition, withdrawal and many others.The difference between using interpersonal strategies inside and outside of a complex is that once they begin to function within a complex they become automatic and stereotypical. The same response appears in every triggering situation, whether it is appropriate and helpful or not.

Several complexes can be activated at any one time.

You may function perfectly normally with most people around a meeting table at work but if you have a “sister complex” (about being competitive with your historical sister), that complex runs like a computer application under the surface and turns itself on automatically when you have to speak to a particular female colleague.

  • You may behave competitively with her without realizing it….even while you are being perfectly reasonable with everyone else.
  • You could at the same time have a father complex operating which affects your responses to your supervisor and an abandonment complex that kicks in when your ideas are rejected.
  • You could have an inferiority or a superiority complex also running which color your interactions with others in a self-critical or self-aggrandizing way.

It is easy to see how having activated complexes can cause no end of interpersonal strain and misery.

“Everyone knows nowadays that people ‘have complexes’. What is not so well known, though far more important theoretically, is that complexes can have us.” – C. G. Jung (1948, para 200)

Complexes are originally well intended and aimed at protecting us from pain and danger.

But as they become automatic and autonomous they can cause no end of trouble because when a complex is activated we do not really control it.

Jung said, “An activated complex puts us momentarily under a state of duress, of compulsive thinking and acting”. (Jung CW 8 pg 96)

A well-developed complex can collect around itself enough memories, experience and feelings that it can begin to function like a partial or “splinter” personality. If the triggering situation is strong enough it can even sometimes temporarily hi-jack the ego. This state is called “identification with the complex” and in this situation the worldview of the complex temporarily takes priority. When we emerge from one of these states we may say:

“I have no idea what got into me”,”That was so unlike me”or “I don’t know what possessed me!”

These reactions capture the sense that we have responded from a part of ourselves that was not actually under our conscious control. There are even times when we cannot fully remember what we said while we were influenced by a complex, or we may have a sense of having been “watching” ourselves say and do outrageous and uncharacteristic things.

When we see another person captured by a complex we may see a noticeable change of expression, of posture or of tone of voice and say, “He was not himself.”

A complex is a distorting lens.

In order to maintain it’s integrity as a splinter personality and to carry out the protective mission which is it’s reason for existing, the filter of a complex will screen out or dismiss as unimportant any new, confusing or contradictory information and will prefer to concentrate on those situations which support it’s world view.

This is why a person who is in the grip of a complex is so maddeningly impossible to reason with and so rejecting of contradictory information offered by others.

A woman who is in the grip of a complex about men’s infidelity will never feel reassured by her husband’s claims of love and assurances that he will not leave her, no matter how many ways he proves himself.

Identify the characteristic components of your particular complexes.

As you start to examine experiences that you notice or that are pointed out to you as strange, you will probably notice that they always seem to occur in particular circumstances, such as….

  • When your partner is leaving for a trip
  • When you have been criticized for something
  • When you experience or suspect rejection

…or with a particular sort of person.

  • Trying to please or interest a “fatherly” type of man
  • Being jealous or competitive with a certain kind of woman.
  • Feeling “weak” whenever faced with an authority figure

As you become able to predict when you may be triggered, you become empowered to choose to take another kind of action or to disregard the impulses from your complex.

Two other signs that someone is captured by a complex:

  • The emotions expressed seem overly intense for the situation that triggered them
  • Language is peppered with absolutes and extremes: “always”, “never”, “Nobody ever”,”everyone always”

Recognizing the experience “after the fact” is helpful because it permits you to engage in “damage control.”

The more skilled you become at identifying your complex-driven behavior, the quicker you will be able to say “I did it again” and take action to repair the situation by apologizing, explaining or trying again in a different frame of mind.

Because complexes both fight to survive and arouse fear and resistance when we try to examine them, it is often helpful to work together with an outside person.

It is necessary to uncover and face these automatic responses because a complex can act like a poorly trained attack dog, snarling and snapping at (or inappropriately cuddling up to) friend and foe alike, causing terrible disruptions in your relationships with friends and colleagues which are based on out-dated fears, feelings and reactions.

A psychologist, counselor or trusted friend can help you identify patterns of response that are hard to recognize from inside and will support you in experimenting with alternative ways of dealing with your fears.

NB: If your therapist works in a cognitive-behavioral model (CBT) he or she may be more familiar with the term “schema” which is another way of talking about the same phenomenon.

As you begin to oppose your complexes with conscious understanding and choose effective real-world strategies to deal with the “dangers” that complexes were developed to handle, they will lose their power because they lose their necessity… and you may have the pleasant experience of having your long-standing complex-driven problems collapse like a house of cards.
