A Spiritually Based Positive Mental Attitude
Creating Inner Awareness; Experiencing Outer Success
Although I have been consciously cultivating my inner awareness for the last 15 years and assisting others as a Spiritual Guide over the last decade, it was only recently, through my studies to become a Doctor of Metaphysics and also through my connection to the late Dr. Paul Leon Masters, that I have been able to succinctly sum up what I have created within the entire body of my personal development and growth work…
“I have created an inner awareness that maintains my outer success through the cultivation of a Spiritually based Positive Mental Attitude.”
As you can see above, I am now able to, in a single sentence, describe the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual “work” that I have been doing in order to feel whole within my own existence as a spiritual being in human form. Through becoming intimately connected to both my personal self /ego based experiences and needs as well as (and at the same time) intimately connected to both my universal self /spiritual based experiences and needs I have built a solid foundation that supports me in the navigation of my everyday life – where no matter the experience – I am able to see it for what it is and not what I have the subjective potential to both positively or negatively create it to be.
I have truly discovered how to maintain the perception of all that life is with a Spiritually based Positive Mental Attitude. Does that mean that my life is perfect? Certainly if we are engaging the the framing of each experience as simply good or bad… then no, it is impossible, nor would I want my life to be perfect. I have come to understand the importance of the yin and yang philosophy of the flow of both positive and negative energy. We have to experience that bad to enjoy the good and vice versa without succumbing to what Dr. Robert Augustus Masters, in his brilliant book by the same name calls “Spiritual Bypassing. It is essential that we are not allowing the new age, often misinterpreted or “dumbed down” version of spirituality to disconnect us from what really matters…
What is a Spiritually based positive mental attitude
A spiritually based positive mental attitude doesn’t mean only seeing the positive in everything – no matter what the experience, nor does it mean faking it until you make it and it certainly does not mean blindly accepting that everything happens for a reason. These are all prime examples of spiritual bypassing that is being perpetuated through the misunderstanding of mystical knowledge in the westernized 21st century.
In fact, being a spiritually based positive mental attitude is… READ MORE HERE

Youtube Channel: A-fest
– a part of Mindvalley.com
Mindvalley is an incredible wealth of Spiritually based life altering tidbits (3 minute to 3 months worth of videos, e-books, classes and courses.) Each month they have even an incredibly empowering FREE master class giving us access to the best of the best in personal and business development.
Their Youtube channels, which include A-fest (a review of their week long annual conference), Soulvana, Mindvalley and Omvana are LOADED with brilliant information you can easily use for creating and maintaining inner awareness in all areas of your life!
The founder, Vishen Lakhiani, is a most generous soul, continually striving to deliver content that is life altering. The current content on A-fest is focused around the elimination, understanding and dis-empowering effects of negativity. What I love about all of the Mindvalley content is that if you are consciously aware of doing “your work” it does not push you into a place of Spiritual Bypassing – a place where you fall victim to Spirituality being an excuse for not getting deep into your True Self and doing the work!
Bo Heimann, writes,”In the book Spiritual Bypassing, Robert Masters has written about an important wake up call to all people with spiritual inclinations. It is a wake up call that rings true, and is aligned with what genuine Buddhist masters have always taught: do not think you can jump to the top of the ladder.
Robert Masters points to a range of unhealthy traits that may arise from unfounded and non-guided spiritual training: Excessive detachment ability; One-sided focus on positive thinking; Fear of anger and artificial kindness; Neglect of emotions; Difficulty in setting limits; No interest in real psychotherapeutic work; An intellectual intelligence that is far ahead of the emotional and moral intelligence; Focus on the absolute rather than the relative and personal; Somewhat inflated ideas about their own cognitive level.
Is there an alarm bell ringing? Are you able to say that you are completely free? Every genuine master whom I have had the luxury of receiving teachings from has always stressed that we need to cultivate from the inside out. With the concept of bypassing, Masters describes how many so-called spiritual people is missing out on imperative psychological development. He compares it to being hoisted down to the mountaintop by a helicopter. We end up without a reliable or firm foundation. Our view is not deserved nor supported from within, but bought and achieved without the appropriate foundational work. We simply have to climb all the way to the top if we really want to be free.
In the book, he points to a number of ways in which we tend to use spirituality as a numbing escape route. Firstly, he points to the fact that there are no easy shortcuts, even though quite a few contemporary spiritual teachers and schools seem to think so. As it is said, we just have to be present in the now.
As Masters notes, it is nevertheless the case that not many of us can or will not accept that” READ MORE…
