John Welwood developed a concept called Spiritual Bypass, it is defined as a “tendency to use spiritual ideas and practices to sidestep or avoid facing unresolved emotional issues, psychological wounds, and unfinished developmental tasks.” Some features can be: exaggerated numbing from things, repression, overemphasis on the positive, anger phobia, overly tolerant compassion, poor boundaries, debilitating judgment of one’s own negative sides, and delusions of having arrived at a higher...

Jan and Monika Zands open today’s session of Mindset Academy following the theme of this month, which is exploring the agreements set by Don Miguel Ruiz in his book The Four Agreements. Today, the third agreement will be discussed which is “Don’t make assumptions.” But let’s start from the beginning: “What even is an assumption?” It is information we use to fill a gap. We are trained to do this and we often believe that the assumptions we made on the missing information are the...

Mindset Academy is led by Monika and Jan Zands. This month we will dive into how do you limit your life in a way that does not allow you to become fully who you really are? There are several books that are basic for personal development, one of them is The Four Agreements, written by Don Miguel Ruiz. Jan set examples when we label ourselves as “liars.” Yes, that is a big word, but many times we promise to ourselves we are going to do something and we fail to do it. We are also ...

Monika and Jan welcome you to Mindset Academy! Today the session is all about “working,” starting with a guided visualization and then a discussion. Guided visualization is to go inside yourself, where all the answers are, find your inner voice, and trust the process. Follow Monika’s directions to this guided visualization. You will find your inner voices: the ones that judge you and are critical; the ones that are loving and supporting. You will  discover what makes you unique. Ask...

Lesson of the episode: Choose your present!   Jan and Monika Zands introduce this month’s topic, which is: You are here now! That  brings the question of Who are you? Which “You” is the one here today? We usually get comfortable being whoever we have been being, and as everybody knows us, but we can get to create whoever we want to be every single time. What if everytime you start and do something you have the choice to decide who you want to be?             The main source...

Monika and Jan Zands present today’s session at Mindset Academy. How you perceive your reality is creating it for you, your Mindset is everything! We usually make assumptions after others’ behaviors, that cause feelings and thoughts, and afterwards we make choices in response to those assumptions. Become aware of the distance between what really happened to the assumptions we made. Our way is not the only way! Probably people’s behavior do not match with our assumptions. Why don't you...

Monika and Jan Zands talk about what is stopping us from meeting our greatness. There are many thoughts that are “slaving” us, they prevent us from being our greater selves. We are slaves of our own ideas, when something goes wrong, or just different from what we were expecting, we tend to sabotage our plans and wishes. We can’t carry on if we do not question our “slavement,” questioning the conceptions and beliefs that are behind this slavement. It is our internal dialogue that is...

This episode Jan Zands guides us into the Topic of the month, which is “You are not alone,” analyzing our perspectives and realizing that our way is not the only way. Jan’s purpose is to help us bust the myth of thinking that at the end of the day everything is on our shoulders, and we are all by ourselves. In reality, every breath we take is proof that we cannot do it all by ourselves — air is there, helping us survive each breath at a time. There is a strange relationship that we have...

Jan and Monika Zands talk this month in Mindset Academy about the topic “You are not alone.” Often in life we feel that we have all the weight on our shoulders and everything depends on us; but it is not true — you are not alone! Walk outside your door; you are surrounded by people, and our context is there with us all the time. We often get into ourselves, we don’t communicate, we don’t connect because there is so much in our minds, that we cannot see the others existing. We need to...

Connecting the parts inside. Various aspects of your personality that show up in different moments and contexts. 2....

Replace judgement and self-criticism with gratefulness and love. Monika and Jan Zands talk about connecting with love and creating a loving context. In this context, which is your personal “loving bubble,” you can love yourself and each other. The more love we can share and produce, the more we can live with others by bonding through loving connections. Loving the moment and loving the journey, loving every moment along the way. We often take for granted our blessings; if we could connect...

We feel we need to prove we can do it alone, but on the contrary, the more vulnerability you allow yourself to show, the more connected to others you will feel. What does it mean to love yourself?

Jan and Monika have been discussing topics every month, and this month the theme is “Your Perspective is your reality.” The mission of Monika is for people to know they are loved and loving, at least for a moment in their lifetime. There is nothing you need to be doing in order to deserve love. Our natural way of being is loving; violence and hate come from a disconnection from our true  way of being. You can find a gift in everything, everyone that interacts with you is providing you the...

Jan and Monika Zands discuss this topic today: “Your way is not the only way.” They give us foundational tools for you to start living the life that you want. When we were children, we experienced life one way: through our senses, and that way we processed reality was “the only way.” When we get older, we become aware that our way is not the only way. What if you could experience your life by looking at it through different lenses? How would that help you to love yourself and others...
