The first step in changing your mindset is how to understand your mind. Your thoughts are ultimately what determine your everyday experiences.
You see, people have certain thought patterns that were acquired because they picked them up from society , from their parents, from groups or organizations and so on. They then project these thought patterns onto their surroundings. Then, they believe that their truth is the right way. However, you are mistaken.
The truth is different for every single person in humanity. This depends on a persons particular thought pattern, this is why we have so much diversity in our world! Isn’t is wonderful to be diverse?
A extreme component in learning about spiritual growth and healing is that we need to let go of what we learned at such a young age. Then we will learn how to remove and instill different thoughts and beliefs that we truly believe. We will then become the masters of our own minds.
This is why meditation is recommended across the world and in all cultures. The reason being is because we are able to calmly observe our own thoughts and patterns without reaction and involvement. This is only one of the ways that we are able to see things differently. See, we sometimes identify with our gender, our political ideologies , nationality , our class stereotypes, this isn’t the right thing to do.
By understanding the power of your own mind it will allow you to identify and be a conciliatory creator of your own reality. Understanding the power of thoughts and belief systems is the first step to personal mastery.
The insanity of the mind creates irrational thinking , illogical ideas and insane thought patterns. Requiring yourself to observe the mind and detach from it, allows you to see its dtysfunctionalality. Then on a grander scale we can also observe the dysfunction with the wars, the hate, environmental deconstruction, racism, sexism, homophobia , political attacks, broken relationships, governmental spying programs, smartphone addictions, health problems and More! Something is wrong with the human population as a whole , this is because millions of minds are not in the right place! On the positive side; meditation can also be a way to tap into your creative genius.
Media social and political also are programming our minds into a state of disempowerment and fear. Advertising as well , it encourages smoking , drinking and consuming unhealthy things for our body. Such as, sugar , caffeine and more. When you look at something even if you think you haven’t had it change your thinking patterns , it does in some way. It leaves a mental impression in your subconscious mind.
Some scientific discoveries and psychological observations in understand how the mind works include the facts as follows:
1. The mind cannot distinguish between real and imaginary.
2. 95% of your activity is ingrained in your subconscious mind.
3. Your subconscious is like a computer system, it has stored everything that has ever happened to you in this life time.
4. We are bombarded with 2 million bits of data every second. It is the job of the subconscious mind to filter through all of this.
5. The conscious mind remember between 5-9 pieces of information. This information is passed to the subconscious mind for processing to free up conciliatory space.
6. Most of our energy expenditure goes towards our brains.
These discoveries have important indications. If the majority of our lives are filled by our subconscious mind , it follows that we should try to manipulate our subconscious mind opposed to our conciliatory ability’s or conscious abilities.
According to Carl Jung “Until you make the unconscious conscious , it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” To program our subconscious minds we need to start affirming new ideas, we might need to under go a self hypnosis of empowerment. There are also other things to create a positive mindset for growth and fulfillment.
Mental strength is the idea that your thoughts determine your environment. By understanding that you can command your thoughts is the first step to doing this! When you commit to a daily routine of developing mental and emotional strength , is takes real discipline , patience as well as character. The idea that we can manifest everything we want is misguided. The fact is that you could have spent the last 30-40 years anti-manifesting!
When you focus on worry and stress, you eat the wrong foods, you are in toxic relationships – you have limiting beliefs that have been ingrained in you since childhood. It could take years to rid yourself of these thoughts and ideas. You have to be constantly aware or vigilant about what you are thinking and what you are consuming.
Increasing your mental and emotional power can start with exercise. Self development can begin for you today, with so many resources at your disposal. Especially with the internet and instant communication person to person, emailing, texting, whatever you want to do, do it now. We need willpower and determination!! So don’t stop , go do it!
Again, exercise is a basic way to build mental strength. Write out your goals and objectives and see if you can stick with them. This might seem like basic advice however, diet and exercise are valuable insights into the way we behave. They are actually the two foundational modalities that mental health can be built upon. Keeping track of your fundamentals will help you! Build a strong character and a healthy body!
As we stated before diet is a great start to developing your mental strength. We all get the idea of knowing that Ice cream, caffeine, sugar and other processed foods are bad for our bodily functioning. Try and see if you can go without caffeine for a week. I literally drank caffeine everyday multiple times a day for years. I then cut it out and I feel so much better. If you try to cut out just one bad thing for you for a week, and stick with it, you might examine how much better you feel.
Your environment determines your behavior. It is imperative to understand the surroundings of your environment. For mental strength, try to manipulate the environment first. This way you will be taking away the opportunity to fail. This means making use of the concept of minimalism as much as possible. The less information and distractions , the clearer your mind will be. Clean your room , your office , even your computer files. This will positively impact your emotional and mental wellbeing.
In my next article we will be discussing more on this topic.
