An easy to understand and important explanation of our mind was created by Dr. Thurman Fleet.If we understand how our mind works we will be able to change our lives.
There are two parts of our mind:
- The conscious part is where we make choices, think, decide and accept or reject ideas
- The subconscious part where everything is accepted as true that comes from the conscious part of mind. It cannot make choices or accept/reject ideas
People usually get influenced by outside matters like the media, opinion of their friends, etc… If they are in a positive environment then these impacts have a positive outcome for them and they will live a good life. Those positive ideas are absorbed in our subconscious mind and we create a habit or belief out of them. The same things happens with the negative ones: we absorb them and they become our belief or habit as well.
If we are stuck with something in our surroundings that has both positive and negative aspects we, might absorb both aspects.However, the negatives ones will hold us back from doing something we want to do. The solution is to choose only positive aspects. Ask yourself if something will benefit or worsen your life.Negative feelings are not true.We humans are creative beings.We create our own reality in our mind.
Words have supernatural powers.
If you accept them,
you may cloak your true talents.
Tell someone they are of great worth,
Be the light in this dim earth.
Build them up, if needed
So that no doubts can be seeded.
It was July 2014 when I was standing in front of two wardrobes full of clothes which had to be organized. I was dreading it because I knew it would take me two days to put everything in order. I had so many things, and I felt suffocated. Little did I know that there were books about decluttering/minimalism (I still have not yet read one) and my surrounding was of no help. Pretty much all of my female friends are super materialistic and some next level hoarders. There isn’t much more to expect if you are born in a ‘first’ world country. You make money and spend it on irrelevant goods. No worries about anything, as long as you can get the latest designer bag.
I wanted to get out of that vicious circle. I could not imagine wasting my time cleaning anymore. So I started sorting out my clothes that were brand new. I donated all of them, sold my cds and my books as well. It felt really great to be released from it all. It usually takes me 3 hours to clean. I want to reduce the time to 1 hour. Time is precious,and I definitely want to spend time doing more meaningful things in life than just cleaning.
I have started simplifying things in every aspect of my life. Throughout the next couple of weeks I will explain more and go into details of these changes.
Til next time,
You may or may not know me, but my name is Ishi and I’m the owner of this blog. I lost all of my earlier content from 2012 til now. Maybe that was a sign to start fresh and write more about what is going on currently in my life. I have changed a lot. I have become more aware, calm, and I am happy to share with you my personal development & conscious lifestyle. The soul-searcher in me is still present. 😉
There is also a music section where you can listen to my original songs.
