A holistic approach to health and wellness entails viewing the human experience as a synergistic existence of 3 key elements, mind, body & spirit. It is my firm belief that the MIND is the most powerful of all these elements, acting as a guiding star for the body and the spirit. Many brilliant writers have touched on the subject, and I aim to contribute my unique brilliance to the mix. Approach the following information with openness and allow it to permeate your cells and affect your physiology. You’ll thank me.
Let’s break it down…
Humans are a privileged species. We have the ability to not only experience the physical world around us, but to directly impact it. We are creators. The impact that we have may manifest itself in the physical sense, but begins in the mind.
Human beings have the ability to construct enormously tall buildings with intricate architectural designs that withstand the elements of nature for generations. These physical marvels began as an idea, a simple thought in a person’s head. This thought began much like a seed that was cultivated and nourished until it sprouted and became physical action.
The construction of a skyscraper is no different than any other physical task in life. It begins in your mind and then is manifested in your actions. It is this simple sequence that we often make much more difficult than we need to by allowing self-doubt to sabotage our efforts. What does this have to do with your health?
Your reality is a result of your psychology. This includes your health, your wealth, your relationships, your income, your education. ALL are a direct reflection of your psychology. You have much more control on your life than you think because YOU have the power to control your mind. When this power is truly realized than personal desires such as earning more money or finding true love is as easy as you allow it to be. Don’t believe me? Let me tie this together with a simple idea…
What you pay attention to will flourish.
Much like a seed, a thought needs nourishment and cultivation to grow and become action. When you spend your time and energy cultivating the seed of self-doubt it manifests itself as a reality that leaves you unfulfilled and depressed.
SHIFT YOUR ATTENTION!
When you pay your attention to positivity and contribution to others you will create a reality in which fulfillment is found in any situation. Take time to slow things down and find the good in any situation rather than allowing your mind to fill with turmoil. Positivity breeds positivity. Follow these 3 steps to use your minds power for good!...
1.) Acknowledge your minds ability to affect your reality in any way that you choose.
2.) Take control of this power and turn your thoughts into positive action.
3.) Trust yourself to find the good in all situations, allowing them to serve you in some way.
Apply these ideas, harness the power of your mind and watch your level happiness grow taller than any skyscraper known to man.
Oh by the way, you subconsciously paid more attention to the words in bold. Your takeaway from this reading was a good one. You’re welcome.
