Myth #4 - Mindset is everything. Having the right mindset is the only way to a better, enlightened high-vibration spiritual life.
Sometime last year, I had a discovery call with a money mindset coach. At the time I wanted to see if mindset work would help me out of a financial jam. The call was going great... until I found out her fees. When I explained that I couldn't afford that kind of money, I was promptly told that I could manifest the money if I really wanted and I clearly had abundance/money issues.
So when asked to pay someone the money I'd normally use for food, clothing & shelter, I was instantly blindsided & somewhat offended! Here was this person who said they were spiritually minded; constantly talked about how the Universe was continually blessing them with riches... only because they made a business out of taking people's money in exchange for a series of PDFs & videos.
How often have you been told you don't have the right mindset? There's only a certain few that have the secrets to the one right mindset that you need to have for eternal life.
Have you ever stubbed your little toe? You know that super-annoying pain you feel that eventually subsides? If you had the "right" mindset you wouldn't feel that pain. It'd just be something you'd dismiss as in the way of your destiny. Or you could say "Ouch, dammit!", feel the pain then move on.
Mindset is something that's been packaged and sold to us as the cure-all - I should know. When I first decided to become a coach I wanted to be a mindset coach. I changed my mind (pun fully intended) when I realized I couldn't do that for someone else & certainly not get paid for it.
Yes, mindset can be important. Yet it gets to be problematic when you're being judged for your mindset. It can never be 'bad' because then you'll never get what you want.
It's also problematic when 'mindset work' doesn't allow for you to express a full range of emotions. Ever find yourself what's considered a "negative" thought and immediately punishing yourself for it? Get off that train stat.
Go with your gut whenever you see any kind of mindset content. What does it tell you? If your gut feels sketchy, then run for the hills. If not, then help yourself.
Your gut won't let you down - even when you think it will.
