The constant hustle seems to be part of the conditioning of the Western world…whether you have your own business, have a job or run a household or volunteer…it’s like a badge of honor. it’s like people believe it’s an ordeal you must live with if you want success. But is it? Or does it only seem that way, and it’s actually your biggest obstacle? Hi, I’m Carla Rieger and you’re listening to the Golden Age Timeline
For example, have you ever stopped the hustle and grind only to find abundance – or what you were striving for – then, and only then, shows up? After coaching thousands of entrepreneurs and leaders to let go of the hustle…I’ve seen this phenomenon countless times.
We’ve been living in this lower density 3D earth our whole lives, but many say we are moving to a higher density, higher vibrational version of earth or, what some people call, 5D earth, or fifth density. I believe that, too. So I think there’s daily small habits we can do to shift out of the hustle mindset and into the flow and abundance mindset which will help bring in the 5D earth sooner.
One of the reasons I’m talking about this is because it’s a theme in the novel, Helio Tropez, the whole idea of us moving from 3rd density to 4th to 5th to 6th and how all that works. I do believe I’ve been part of more advanced, higher dimensional worlds in past lives, future lives, parallel lives. And maybe you’ve been there, too, or sense you have. One of the ways to get back there is to remember what that was like, or to hear about from others what that was like to trigger your own memories. That’s one reasons I wrote Helio Tropez, a subterranean city in inner earth in a higher dimensional plane of existence, where the hustle, the scarcity, the stress just isn’t there…or is much less. Yes, they have problems and issues, but not like the dense polarity realm of surface 3rd density earth. So, if you like a page-turner sci fi fantasy adventure, check it out. It’s won four book awards so far and hit bestseller in Time travel fiction.
So learning small and simple, practical ways to shift your mindset from a lower density to a higher density or higher frequency range is the key to magnetizing this new Golden Age towards us personally and globally. It also creates a flow frequency around you that positively affects others. Have you ever worked alongside to someone who was relaxed, calm, creative, centered and just magnetized prosperity, resources, and great idea? I have. I was being mentored by a woman many years ago who was doing what I wanted to do at the time…which was consulting, speaking, coaching on creativity. She totally embodied the “flow state”. I remember the first time I showed up for our session. I was in an agitated state because I’d rushed to get there, couldn’t find parking, worried about being late. As she opened the door she cushioned her hands, instructing me to breathe…and to let all the rushing and hustle mindset go. After that she forbad me to show up in an agitated state like that, and gave me tools to shift my mindset before entering the sacred space of creativity we were going to work in.
Just being around her, my brain waves started to match hers and soon I was calm, relaxed and more creative than I’d ever been. Just thinking about working with her…and I could get into that state, until it became second nature to be like that. She never rushed, she took her time to do everything always believing in an abundance of time, money, support. Whatever she needed – she just focused her mind in that way and it would miraculously show up, often in unexpected ways…or at unexpected times…as she was willing to co-create with the universe rather than be demanding of the universe…if you know what I mean.
This idea of living like that regularly or living in a whole society of people being like that is a theme in the novel, Helio Tropez. Many people have been asking me about that. So it’s where no one rushes anywhere, creative expression is deeply valued, people co-create in harmonious ways. I believe, is the natural state of humans if given a chance, if not programmed with the scarcity mindset.
I’m sure you’ve experienced times when “time” seemed to stand still, or you lost track of time because you were so absorbed in something fascinating. Or, you were resisting the moment…where you felt like the clock was taking forever to tick it’s way through the minutes. It proves that time is, in many ways, based on perception. And mindfulness training often helps people change their programming around time.
Case in point. Here’s an example of mindfulness. Maybe some of you have studied mindfulness principles so you’ll relate to this. Certainly that’s made a huge difference in my life and therefore I share practices of mindfulness with clients. In particular, the ability to drop down into what, say, a mindfulness teacher might call THE TRUE SELF, or the compassionate neutral witness. The first time I got into this was back in the 1990s when I got invited to a 5 day silent meditation retreat. I never thought I could be in silence for 5 days sitting or walking and just watching my mind. I thought I’d run screaming out of there after the first day, but I ended up loving it and noticed massive ripple effects in my life after that. In fact, right afterwards I had an intense business trip planned speaking at events in many cities. But I was very much grounded into this practice of just being ok with whatever life brought me. That wasn’t my usual style especially when travelling. I tended to get stressed out easily especially when there were delays in the face of a deadline. For example, the traffic was bad getting to the airport, the check in line was very long, the security line was even longer. I finally get through security just when my flight was supposed to leave, but strangely I was cool about it. And the monitor read that my flight was 20 minutes delayed. So glad I didn’t drive myself crazy with worry, for nothing. I was really hungry so I decided to buy a bag of dry roasted cashews just to tide me over. I then go to sit in the departure lounge. I put the cashews down on the little table between two seats and then see I have some urgent texts on my phone to respond to. Now here’s weird thing, a few minutes later the woman beside me picks up my bag of cashews, opens them and starts to eat a few. I look over at her surprised. She smiles and offers me some. Normally, I would’ve reacted and said something to her, but I’m cool. So I just smile back and I take a few cashews, then she has some more, then offers me more. And we both sit there munching our cashews in silence until they are all gone.
Then we get in line for the plane, and I decide to strike up a conversation. I want to know what kind of woman steals another person’s cashews. Turns out we were in the same line of work. She did training and development for a huge multi-national company. I told her what I did. Long story short, she ended up hiring me to work for her company. So glad I didn’t get reactive with her.
At any rate, at the time we board the plane and I am getting settled into my seat, and I open my bag and there is my bag of cashews. So glad I never got reactive with her. State of mind is game changer, right?
This hidden taskmaster, which is like malware in the mind. Some people call it The Tyrant Mind. It’s not the real you, it’s just a program you picked up by mistake or out of ignorance and it’s still in there running the show. And I would go so far as to say that if you want to see a kinder, more just, healthier society, begin by casting out the Tyrant Mind within yourself first and replace it with a benevolent, empowering inner coach. Because the Tyrant Mind says…You gotta keep chasing. You just gotta keep building. You gotta get everything done on your task list or all hell will break lose. People even do that to themselves with life balance and wellness practices. You gotta do the meditation. You gotta do the yoga. You gotta journal,. You gotta spend time with the kids. You gotta go lie on the couch and read the novel. And irony is that if you’re doing those life balance things from the Tyrant Mind, it’s defeating the whole purpose.
It doesn’t matter how many wellness routines you have, if you’re bullying yourself to do them, then it’s not sustainable. If you’re doing something and you’re feeling overwhelmed doing it, then the mindset itself should tell you…you’re not going to get the benefits. And the way the systems of the world are set up, it’s often an ever increasing challenge. You thought your role was challenging before the lockdown, now it’s more challenging. Maybe you’re building a business online, so you’re trying to make really great content, building a list. And all of a sudden the algorithms of one of your social media platforms changes. Now you lose people, you lose business. So you have to hustle harder. Then you feel you must stay abreast of current events, so you must add consuming content to the list. Then you have friends, family members or clients going through a tougher time than normal so you put in longer hours, sacrificing your own needs for their needs, because you should, right, you have to, right?
Maybe you wake up in the morning and think, I should drink some water with lemon in it, because that’s really good for balancing your pH, and I shouldn’t have coffee, but coffee makes you hustle a little bit more. You should also have vitamin D, but maybe it’s better to go outside to get vitamin D but you don’t have time to go outside, so you buy it instead. You have to keep buying things to be well, and then have to hustle more to buy the things to make you well.
We often we forget that everything we do is a choice. Any time you say that you “have to” do something is a lie. You can choose anytime to not do any of it. Yes, I hear the arguments back from my clients, from myself, from those I support. No, you don’t understand the bad consequences that will happen, if I say no. My kids will feel abandoned, my business will fall apart, my peers will judge me, I’ll go broke, I’ll die. But will you really? Will they really? Will it really? Or is that a lie that the Tyrant Mind feeds to you to keep you running faster on the treadmill. Because if you’re fuelled by adrenaline, running on the treadmill, then it’s hard to really tap into wise discernment, to true creativity, to ingenious solutions to your problems and life problems, to truly serve people in the way you were meant to. Maybe letting it all fall apart for a while is the road back to nirvana, to yourself, to the true self, to true harmony, purpose, meaning, to a Golden Age. Maybe staying loyal to that Tyrant Mind is contributing to the problems of the world in a way you may not have fully realized.
Many of us are buried in the idea that somehow doing more equals better. And maybe you’ve experienced that phenomenon of chasing more, more, more, more, more and then you get more, more, more only to find that it’s empty. It’s like the proverbial horse and cart driver who puts a carrot on a stick in front of the horse to keep it moving forward. After a while he realizes real carrots go off, so he gets a plastic carrot, and it still works. So the horse chases the plastic carrot, going miles and miles and miles. One day the horse driver isn’t paying attention and the horse actually gets to chomp on the carrot, only to find it’s plastic. No nourishment. All a big con game. Sometimes we have to get the goals we’ve killed ourselves to get only to find it was one big plastic carrot. Because that’s the wake up call, often. I know it’s happened to me. I remember chasing this dream of being a highly successful speaker, author and thought leader. I got there. I got the accolades, the standing ovations, but it all felt not worth it. I couldn’t keep going. I went on the quintessential journey of letting everything go in my life, letting it all fall way, going back to nothing, and just travelled the world, ending up in the far east meditating, doing yoga, writing novels, studying dance, song, theatre, poetry, doing nothing that would be considered useful or practical. I came back completely renewed and ready to do my work from an entirely different place, doing it for the inner or intrinsic reward versus the external or extrinsic rewards that drove me before. Maybe you’ve gone on a similar journey, maybe like me, you’ve done that journey more than once, because it’s easy to get caught up in the plastic carrot on the stick game again if you’re not careful. It’s the sea you swim in, it might be the game being played by so many around you.
As I’ve said on other episodes, it’s that false illusion that you must be happy all the time, and that you can buy that happiness. To be happy and secure comes from an external source like money in the bank, a house, car, successful business, well-educated children, and people that approve of you. People will sell their soul over and over again for these external sources of fulfillment. I would go so far as to say that the game of life is really about recognizing traps like that, and avoiding them, of living from a place of internal abundance, being a light unto yourself, serving a higher purpose. When you figure that out and integrate that learning, that’s when everything changes. No more hamster wheel, no more chasing the carrot.
That’s not to say that buying that pair of shoes or that new jacket, doesn’t make you feel better. Or getting likes on your post, or positive feedback from people, or finishing that task by the deadline or get that contract. It does give you that dopamine hit, that chemical feeling that says, Oh, wow, I feel good about myself. But if that’s the only way you can ever feel good about yourself, then you are trapped. Ask yourself this, can you still feel good about yourself when you cannot buy new things, when no one likes your post, when you get negative feedback, when you cannot or do not finish the task by the deadline, when you lose that contract especially when you were counting on that income. That’s the real mastery. Will you still have your own back, will you still have an inner sense of worth or will you beat yourself up, make yourself miserable? It’s always based on your thoughts. How you choose to treat yourself when the going gets challenging that really counts. And the good news is that it’s all in your control. It’s all based on where you choose to focus your attention.
All that said, many of those programs that run our lives are based in the subconscious, below our awareness, and many of us don’t know how to shift them. All the affirmations, journaling, coaching processes in the world don’t seem to make a difference. That’s because there’s likely stuck emotional trauma, and not just your trauma, but the trauma of the collective human consciousness. But it IS possible to remove it. You’ve probably even done it before.
Have you ever had a time in your life when you just let yourself have a big emotional outlet, where you felt so trapped, so much inner conflict that at some point you let everything fall apart? Most of us have. And if you remember back, did that mark the beginning of a big turnaround in your life? If so, tap into the story, or what we call the “mindstory” where you let yourself escape from trapped energy in your mind, and let yourself be free again.
In remembering when you did that before you can access your ability to do it again now. Because you might now need to break free from the Tyrant Mind so you can flourish, so your higher mind is free to create the life, the lifestyle and the world of your choosing, rather than stay trapped chasing false goals.
Because a society built around chasing false goals, false dreams, unsustainable realities is a form of insanity. In other words, all the meditation, affirmations, lemon water, supplements, journaling in the world just end up being a bandaid for something deeper. We need to address the systems and infrastructures in our minds, and therefore, in the mind of the collective that is creating the problem in the first place. There are many to solve, but I believe focusing in on the removal of the Tyrant Mind is a good place to start. And changing the intention of that inner authority to one of benevolence and empowerment creates a ripple effect in the world. It’s ironic seeing people protesting, blaming, criticizing others and external realities, and meanwhile they’re bullying themselves mercilessly. Start at home first. In fact, when I did my first coach training eons ago, I remember learning that people who are hypercritical of others are usually 10x as critical to themselves, but usually at the subconscious level. They might not admit that, but people who need to rage at externals, are usually also bullying themselves in nasty ways. That’s not to say you shouldn’t be a warrior of truth, laying down boundaries, standing up for your rights, but sometimes people think their making a difference by pointing out flaws and issues around them, and they’re just painting themselves into a corner of victimhood, disempowering themselves and entrenching themselves in a system that blocks their forward movement.
But most people have probably experienced a time when they went from fighting with reality, pushing and bullying themselves, and then at some point, stopping. Just putting down their weapons, laying down the sword, stopping the bullying, stopping the pushing, and letting themselves just process the hurt of that way of living, and letting themselves heal. Then, it’s like the sun comes out again. The stress levels go down, and the good hormones come up, and magic starts to show up. Resources just start flowing. And it’s the weirdest thing ever. It’s the Law of Reciprocity in effect, right? Have you own back and Life or The Universe starts to have your back. If you don’t have your own back, then you block all the resources of life. The game of money starts to change, the game of relationships, the game of resources, all are mirrored by how you treat yourself. You break out of the victim, villain hero triangle within yourself. That’s a trap of the mind where you bully yourself, feel victimized by it, and try to rescue yourself by changing external circumstances. When you rise above all that and realize you’re playing all the roles yourself, then you can simply create a life based on full connection to the abundant flow of Life.
So give yourself the space to see what’s true or not for yourself, what’s a right use of your focus and energy and what’s a false path. You can only do that when you take the pressure off and let yourself just be. And it can happen in a minute, just that choice to pause for a minute.
