“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” ~ Buddha
In order to rewrite the mind positively we need to understand its composition. The mind is composed of three parts, the conscious, the subconscious and the superconscious.
The conscious mind is the part we are aware of – the part that does the thinking, worrying, planning and creating. It is a tiny part of the structure; it is the subconscious that is the looming bulwark, a massive entity with incredible powers and potentials. Its unique characteristic is that it can create anything that we command it to create, by virtue of the thoughts we think.
If you believe that you cannot achieve something, if you believe that you cannot have something, the subconscious will create conditions, so that your beliefs are proved. To transform your life, it is very important that you seek the help of the subconscious.
“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” ~ Christopher Reeve
I have always loved movies. Especially the ones that inspire you, motivate you, and encourage you to be a better human being. It’s this time of the year usually that these “hero” movies come out.
One of the great things about these movies is that the hero always manages to lift up from life’s troubles. While the rest of us mere mortals would curl up in a dark corner, the hero commits fully to the journey ahead and finds a way to restore the world’s balance.
“You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you’ve climbed a mountain.” ~ Tom Hiddleston
As we try and adapt to a new normal in this world which is completely different from what we expected it to be, emotional & mental health is drastically affected. And not in the most positive way. There is magnanimous stress on us as we try to adapt to new relationship dynamics with partners, family, friends, neighbors, work mates…with life itself.
So what do we do in these trying times to maintain our mental and emotional health? The good news is, there is hope yet for us all.
“If you are to free your heart, you must embrace your painful feelings, have faith that your thoughts will arise and cease of their accord. They will pass if you can face them head on, with kind eyes. Your thoughts and feelings will dissolve if you don’t try to hold on to them or push them away. Thinking will dissipate. Trust in this universal law of change.” ~ Valerie Mason-John from her book “Detox Your Heart: Meditations for Healing Emotional Trauma”
We are each products of our life experiences. We grow and evolve with every experience we have. Be it a happy experience or a traumatic one.
Traumatic experiences have the tendency to leave unhealed wounds on our psyche. They are those nasty cracks through which anxiety, stress, depression etc. can easily manifest themselves. Hence healing these deep seated emotional traumas is necessary for your overall well-being.
