Beginner's Mindset



When we talk about developing a new mindset, lifestyle, or habit, we often feel pretty uncomfortable.

〰️

The discomfort in not knowing an outcome of something unpractised can sometimes be linked back to fears of not knowing enough, being called “stupid”, fearing that you won’t amount to the expectations of an authorities figure in your upbringing etc.

〰️

While these are all very real fears, they’re also the basis of what gets in the way. Unlearning fear-based habits is similar to going back to seeing things through a child’s eyes.

〰️

When we unlearn, we undo the programming and conditionings of the past. Rather than “revert”ing, we evolve into a space of conscious awareness of the triggers and patterns of the past, and can then move into things with the awe and wonder and curiosity of a child. Wiping the slate a little cleaner so to speak.

〰️

When we are able to access that point, then comes the play. We can approach new things, behaviours, habits, skills, with a sense of the beginner. The Fool, in the major Acarna so to speak. The ability to go forth and be open to making mistakes, knowing that those mistakes won’t affirm a belief of “I’m not good enough/safe”, but instead “this lesson taught me the contrast of what NOT to do to achieve X”.

〰️

Nueroplasticity is an amazing way to play with this.

Begin to show the mind that discomfort can be disconnected from fear.

You can do this by simply doing simple tasks (brushing your teeth) with your non dominant hand, or learning a new skill for fun.

〰️

The Wim Hof method of ice/cold showers is also a great lesson in breathing through discomfort.

〰️

See how you can play with showing your ego mind that when things get uncomfortable, it can be adventurous and exciting, rather than perpetuating the closing off confinement’s of what you’ve learned is “safe”.

〰️

Allow yourself to be a beginner at something.
