Perfectionism, a trait many of us wear as a badge of honor, is proven in consciousness calibrations to be more of a curse than a blessing. While striving for excellence can lead to significant accomplishments, an obsessive need for perfection can cause stress anxiety, and even halt progress.
In fact, according to ConsciousnessCalibrations.com, perfectionism calibrates at 180 on the Map of Consciousness® (the same destructive, downward-pulling, and negative energy as a politician!?!) Even worse is what Brian Gibbs, Founder of ConsciousnessCalibrations.com, calls the “perfection instinct” which calibrates at 160 on the Map of Consciousness®.
This is the same impersonal attractor field of energy as SCORN, the GLAMOUR EFFECT, and (no surprise) UNWORTHINESS.
Understanding and overcoming perfectionism is a journey, one that requires introspection, patience, and a lot of self-love. This blog post will guide you through five steps to help you break free from the chains of perfectionism, revealing a life where mistakes are stepping stones, not stumbling blocks.
Explanation of what perfectionism is and how it can hold you back
Perfectionism is a personality trait characterized by striving for flawlessness and setting high-performance standards, accompanied by critical self-evaluations and concerns regarding others’ evaluations (Hewitt & Flett, 1991). It can often lead to unnecessary anxiety and stress, as well as time wasted on unimportant details.

While perfectionism can appear to motivate you to perform at a high level and deliver top-quality work, it can also slow you down and prevent you from completing tasks or achieving your goals (Knight, 2019). The desire to make everything perfect can make you lose sight of the bigger picture and hinder your progress. Moreover, the fear of making mistakes can paralyze you, causing procrastination and even complete avoidance of specific tasks.
The better way to go…the far superior alignment (in consciousness) is to intend (310-powerful) for Mastery (450-powerful) and/or Excellence (460-powerful).
These are significantly more powerful magnetic attractor fields in consciousness than perfectionism (160-180-negative orientation)
