The brain is designed to multi-task easily & can easily handle multiple tasks. Handling multiple lines of thought, at the same time is simple. What upsets performance are thoughts… with different emotional values.
Positive – Industrious, Diligent.
+ Peak performance. Multi-tasking. Getting things done. Moving through tasks seamlessly and getting a lot done in your day. In the zone. Ticking off jobs on the ‘to do’ list. Approaching everything in your life from a calm, clear & objective perspective.
Negative – Overwhelmed, Overloaded.
– Overworked. Traffic jam. Pile of work. Back log of jobs to do. Rat race. 9-to-5 mentality. Inundated. Unable to perform. Keeping a diary but repeatedly ignoring and putting off certain tasks. Backlog of mental energy. Overlapping thoughts, plans & desires. Unspent mental energy backing up in your system. Using your mind like a ‘dream board’ and holding mental energy back from what it is designed to do – motivate action to complete what is on your mind. Clogged mental body. Haywire. Cross wires due to entertaining two or more thought patterns. Scatterbrained. Dyslexic or ‘delayed processing’ tendencies because your brain is not processing information at the speed it is designed to.
Cause of Issue – Fixation ( Sustained Mental Focus )
The Botanical Archetype Tillandsia relieves issues caused by a sustained mental focus & habitual thinking.
This flower ( yin ) is the counterpart to the Yellow Flaming Sword ( yang) which is for startle, alarm and flight response.
The key word for this flower is ‘multi-tasking’ and ‘getting things done’. It is the one, single flower that fits the ‘9-to-5’ mentality like a glove. So if you feel like you wish to escape the rat race ( but have to live in it ), this is the flower for you!
The truth is that the human brain can multi-task & handle many jobs easily. It’s designed to perform a lot of tasks, all at once. Therefore, handling multiple lines of thought ( projects, goals, obligations ) at the same time is simple.
So why can’t we multi-task in our day and perform at our peak, everyday? The problem is not that you have one body or only 24 hours in a day. The issue is the different emotional values / wavelengths you have assigned to the different areas of your life.
- For example, your family has a different emotional value than your job.
- You think differently about ‘earning money’ than you think about leisure activities.
- While these things are different in physical reality, inside the mind, everything you do has a thought behind it.
In the inner world, the only difference between the different areas of your life is the emotional value you empower those thoughts with. I.e. Work is stressful, holidays are relaxing, I like this family member but don’t like another, etc.
Like all flowers from this plant group, the Tillandsias or ‘air plants’, the flower of Performance “strips excess emotion out of your thinking” so you can think clearly. This allows you to seamlessly move from task to task, without friction or breaking stride. This may sound robotic or cold, but life will provide the emotion and the feeling values as you go about your day. Leaving you to think clearly and change gears seamlessly, swap roles and getting things done in your busy life.
Without breaking stride.
The second key lesson to be learned is the nature of thought. Mental energy is designed to be focused and released to motivate action. In short, the mind is not designed to ‘hold’ mental energy or images. Therefore, excessive goals, plans and unlived dreams only serve to clog the mind, hamper the free flow of life energy which manifests as barriers, blocks and interruptions in your life.
Other flowers warn of using your mind like a ‘dream board’ and creating bucket lists, without directly taking action to live them out.
In short, the mind is designed to focus on desired outcomes and act on them, quick as lightening to make the content of your mind a reality. Otherwise, keep your mind clear and free of unspent mental energy. Not matter how positive the thought may seem.
