In this episode, Pixie will talk about the mindset tools that have enabled her to succeed.
1. Have a Filter
One has to filter and put a screen door. The screen will help a person discern what they chose to receive and what the person bears witness to but reflects on. There are also things inside that need to stay there awaiting awakening. When the right time comes, the cessation of a threshold of emotions makes a person ready and someone will come along and drop a nugget which becomes an opening. The nuggets initiate a blast off. As an instructor, Pixie gets a lot of praise from people on how she has helped them and if she does not put a filter then her ego would fill up and the next time she gets criticized it will affect her.
2. Live an Integrity Filled Life
Everyone should be on a mission to live an integrity filled life. Soul Cycle helps Pixie to walk a truthful life. At one time, she was advising people at Soul Cycle and she realized that she was not living the way she was advising people to live. She had to go home and break up with her partner and move out. The break up was intense but it was empowering to her. Pixie holds herself accountable to a standard that is impossibly high. She always thrives to walk the talk.
3. Choose to Forgive
Pixie experienced sexual abuse when she was young. This made her to have a lot of anger and resentment towards her mother and her boyfriend who molested her. She learned how to heal and accepted that it did not happen to her but it happened for her. This taught her the greatest act of forgiveness. She woke up one day and realized that forgiveness is not a feeling because she is never going to feel okay about everything that happened to her. She chose to forgive and by that choice she loved them and by choice she would tell how she felt anytime the resentment came up. That choice set her free. This helped her heal and have the courage to talk about it and help anyone experiencing the same. Forgiveness is an act and needs constant work. When you forgive people for their darkness and mistakes, it makes it easier for you a person to acknowledge your own mistakes and forgive yourself.
4. Be the Victor not the Victim
A person’s experience is only shameful when it is kept a secret. Our current culture is focused on our external body and the external things, that we have forgotten that what is going on inside is more important. Shame can keep you stuck and sad. Letting go of the shame is critical. Some people want to have their experience as their identity but some want to have it as the victim. Everyone should strive to be the victors of their stories and experiences.
5. Live for the Moment
Internalizing about that statement makes a person more present and clear. We are at this moment and we are how we respond to each other in the moment. We are what we are willing to give and receive. We are how we perceive and we are how we react and respond in this moment. After that it's a new moment in the next moment. People should therefore ensure that they don’t get caught up with other things that are not important in their life.
6. Daily Routines
Pixie always sleeps listening to the sound of waves. Once she wakes up, she tells her boyfriend good morning and that she loves him. Her boyfriend also does the same thing. They also do headspace with her boyfriend before getting out of bed. Pixie also burns Palo Santo and looks at her calendar for the inspirational quote of the day. She also does the ritual of making herself a morning Matcha and her boyfriend's coffee.
It is her belief that food is love and acts of kindness are huge to her. Before she eats her food, she says a silent prayer and blesses the food. There is also a new ritual that she has started to practice called ‘label that enough.’ If it is getting late and she is still working, she labels it enough and rests to continue later.
Fulfillment for Pixie is acts of service and purpose and also putting as much work into her inner stuff, as much as she puts out in the world.
