An individual in the positive Pineapple state goes to himself for a second opinion. And why not? It will be as reliable as the first. Clarity, strength and wisdom are the pinnacles of Pineapple. Here we see an extremely magnetic and charismatic expression of energy. Public speakers, politicians, actors and people in the limelight are generally strong in positive Pineapple characteristics. The glamour of their achievements and the glare of their mistakes catch the public eye with equal impact.
Pineapple is the ideal essence for identity crisis during the teenage years (“I don’t like myself”); for mid-life crisis (“Who am I now?”); or for any sudden or dramatic change in life that leaves us not quite knowing who we are. Pineapple vibrationally teaches us to know and to like ourselves, leading to our becoming supremely likable in the process.
Pineapple comes to the rescue when confidence fails us. “I was in a serious car accident a couple of years ago,” Debbie recalled.” From that time on, even as a passenger, my stomach would end up in my throat. I took Pineapple for two months, especially when the fear arose. The Pineapple allowed me to tell myself, ‘You know what you have to do.’ It allowed me to go through with it.” Pineapple is the essence for self-assurance, meaning tested faith in our Higher Self.
The negative Pineapple state makes itself known through flamboyancy and the flaunting of every quality but humility. Individuals trapped in this condition will verbally back you into a corner. They are loud and overbearing, the topic of conversation usually revolving around themselves or their ideas-political, environmental or metaphysical. You may not be able to get a word in edgewise, so be prepared to just listen! Instead of having a lot of character, the negative Pineapple person is a character.
Paradoxically, this type of behavior is often symptomatic of an inferiority complex. The negative Pineapple state may also manifest as its opposite, shyness. Here we see the wallflower at the party, standing at the back of the room staring down at his feet. “Self-assuredness is big issue for me,” Paul admitted. “Almost immediately I felt results from Pineapple. I was less preoccupied with understanding myself and less worried about others’ judgments.”
Then there’s the job arena. Doubting our abilities, dissatisfied with skills and preoccupied with our shortcomings-these qualities contribute to an unhappy work environment. When asking for a raise, isn’t the real question, “Am I worth it?” Pineapple is the essence for money issues. We see in the negative Pineapple state a self-fulfilling prophecy of defeat in which we might feel underpaid; unrecognized for our achievements, which may indeed be fine; unable to secure the raise we feel we deserve; or unappreciated by our superiors.
These circumstances are often mere reflections of our own poor self-image. How can we blame the law of magnetism for drawing to ourselves precisely that which we broadcast out to the world? We should, rather, applaud it for its consistency and thank it for such a prompt RSVP!
Spend time with Pineapple themes or people you know who are successful. Read about famous people, or watch movies about their lives- inventors, leaders, political figures and athletes. Go to performances by solo artists who have achieved a measure of greatness and recognition. Develop on deeper levels those skills and talents in which you already excel. Anytime you find that you are comparing yourself to others-stop!
It is a warm summer day. Were it not so early, the heat would have set in and made the hike before you even more strenuous. You survey the mountain from its base and mentally brace yourself for a rugged morning climb. Your daypack holds some high carbohydrate snacks and a canteen of water filled from a spring at camp. A few deep breaths, and you’re off. The trail proves well worn and solid under your hiking boots. Two pairs of socks should prevent any blistering. You are confident; all is ready.
The ascent is steady, the scenery varied and interesting. First you traverse a cool forest of hardwoods, the dew barely covering patches of moss. Then the trees thin out and the landscape grows sparse. The trail is much dryer now and covered with pieces of brown and gray shale. The sun beats down in a familiar and friendly way. The ascent steepens. No matter, you know you can do it. Confidence matches your every step.
You are breathing harder now, feeling your leg muscles challenged more deeply as you climb over rocks and large boulders. Although the hike has grown more difficult, you meet it without resistance. Endorphins flow within you like a cool stream, washing into your inner sight a great sense of power and self-knowing.
You pause on the trail and breathe in the quality of self-assuredness-owning it, honoring it, realizing it. One with the mountain, the sun, the trail, you inhale the sweet breeze of a triumphant climb.
