True.

Emotional Wellness (Sweet State)
Analysis Skills (Sweet State)
Money management (Sweet State)
Winning Trades (Sweet State)
Nice profits (Sweet State)

Cutting Losses ( Sweet State)
Let profits Run (Sweet State)

I like to watch people get in and out of their sweetness. Often they are not even aware of it. A sharp comment, followed by adverse reaction statement and their sweetness is gone. The other person is to blame. Never. That negative state is within and you simply applied it. Same with the market. Everything. Sweet State is support. All the rest is resistance.

I watch how kids manage to get emotional reactions from parents. Classic. As soon as the kid does something where the parent negatively reacts, they have lost and the kid wins again! Test yourself when next time you have to mind kids. After they mess your computer and bust the mouse, and stab the gel wrist mouse mat, download Ben10, all before they can ever read, see how your sweetness holds.

Knowing the Inner Power of Sweetness, I just fix everything and buy some 'new' stuff! LOL!!!

Shivaya

The paramount thing is understanding the causality of this. It is the Sweet State (cause) that brings about results (effects)... not the other way around. Another way to put this is that happiness brings about success, not success happiness.

Unfortunately most people go into trading 'the wrong way'. They expect to achieve trading success... and THEN they will be happy (so they think). Much better to go into trading ALREADY happy... and then allowing that happiness to guide one towards success. "Pleasant abiding here and now".

Trading does not solve unhappiness problems (makes them much worse in fact), but one has a much higher chance of becoming a successful trader if already happy.

I agree being in the right frame of mind is the key to trading.....

Shivaya is translated into English as " I bow before Shiva". Shiva is the Hindu god of destruction.

The god of destruction involved with feelings of sweetness? Shiva is also listed as the "god who remains after all is destroyed....or the inner self". So in the most literal meaning, one "bows or worships oneself".

Just some facts I found along the way.

Hi Shivaya,
Great posts on something I believe far more important but lacking in most. Thanks for sharing.

You talked about 'getting into a state of sweetness' and I know this could be different from person to person but in your case, if you do not mind sharing here, is it some kind of meditation/yoga/prayer you do or is it some other rituals you run through prior to start of trading?

... The goal was to achieve a sweet state of being and then trade my setups.
... If I am in a state of unsweetened distraction I know that my only work is to first get into the state of Inner Sweetness. Once there, then I analyse and trade. I care about how I feel before trading. I gotta 'feel' sweet!

Shivaya

Cheers,
K

Shiva is the destroyer... of illusion. The transcendent Self whipping out the small and weak ego-self. Shiva represents return to the Source.

Sweetness is the same for all of us, just some may use different names to describe the feeling. No ritual, prayer, belief system, or yoga required. (I did all these over the years but now it's simply a state of loving consciousness) Look at a sunrise or sunset, or watch birds play in the thermals, or dolphins surf, or kids playing, or your sweetheart's loving glance. They will all get you into a state of sweetness and a feeling of inner joy. You are part of all this wonder. Just like the market, place a trade and now you are part of this play. How wonderful is that!

Shivaya

Perfectly put!

A return to Who we really are! A Powerful Being. I can tell you, but...Only you can realize this.

Yep. probably the most misunderstood aspect of us dear humans, 'loving oneself'. We go looking for others to love us while ignoring the powerful Inner Love. I deeply love and appreciate every aspect of my being, so trading is a joyful experience, as is surfing and dancing and more.

Personally, I would tear your heart out, if I knew it would make me an extra tick...but that's just me.

You need focus, a competitive spirit, and good money management to be a successful trader....Kumbaya!

Well, I got all those but the state of sweet consciousness simply expands every aspect of my trading including the fun part.
