Clear Your Mind - Elevate Your Experience
Clearing the mind of clutter, negative thoughts, judgements and comparisons leads to a more satisfying life and elevates our experience on Earth. This page details techniques, habits, holistic medicines and methods that we can use to bring about a positive change in general wellness to improve our lives.
Heal The Body Through The Mind
In Western civilization we are often programmed to believe that in order to attain happiness we should strive for that high paying job, marry the spouse of our dreams, start a family and buy a large house with a white picket fence.
Through mass media and marketing we are bombarded with messages informing us that who we are and what possessions we have isn't enough; there's always room for more. I feel that living this way is unhealthy and very rarely leads to a satisfactory life and sense of fulfillment.
After experimenting with deep inward exploration during my travels, my perspective on how to better my life was completely changed and rewritten. I learned about many alternative methods of self-improvement that are not so common and encouraged by Western civilization, but have been used around the world in other cultures for millennia.
Although there are many different methods that are used to improve wellness, I feel that the three most important to elevating our experiences on Earth are meditation, holistic health through plant medicines and healthy diet, and recognition of the power of the subconscious mind.
I've included sections below where you can browse content that I've found on the web detailing these three subjects. As I enter more entries on this blog I will add my own content and opinions on these topics.
Meditation is an ancient practice that calms the mind through relaxation techniques such as breathing, being in the moment and self-awareness. Proper use of meditation is known to promote increased levels of self-content and internal energy through improved development of love, patience, compassion, generosity and forgiveness. It's also known to reduce anxiety, depression and high blood pressure.
Natural Plant Medicines
Many plant medicines contain healing properties for both mental and physical health problems. From psychoactive plants such as ayahuasca, psilocybin containing mushrooms, mescaline based cacti, ibogaine and cannabis to standard spices used in cooking such as ginger, saffron and turmeric. Explore the benefits of naturally occurring plant medicines that promote improved mental and physical health.
The subconscious is the part of our mind that is in control of our thoughts, actions and feelings. We experience life and process our thoughts through our conscious mind, and it may seem as if it is in control. But such a small percentage of what we think and do originates in the conscious mind. When we learn to be aware of our subconscious and how it is truly the part of our brain that is in control at all times, we recognize that we're able to govern our thoughts and actions, and manage the frequencies at which we are vibrating. By realizing this fact and controlling these aspects, we are able to take control of our lives and create the realities which we desire.
