Let go and liberate your mind
by Sue Kira, Naturopath & Clinical Nutritionist
What does it mean to liberate your mind? Consider for a moment how exceptional that could be for you. Perhaps it can bring you…
– A life free of stress, anger, depression, guilt, fear, sadness or negativity
– A body you love which has all the energy you need
– Improved relationships
– A wonder-full life of joy, connection and love
Liberate your mind to find freedom
Emotional freedom and inner balance comes from shifting your state of consciousness from one of stress and resistance, to one of presence, acceptance and understanding. Through understanding we can eliminate reactions and simply respond (without the emotion).
What prevents you from liberating your mind?
Your thoughts. All the choices you have made in your life so far have produced the life you are now experiencing. These choices are motivated by your thoughts.
Thoughts can create havoc. For example you may have thoughts of mistrust in a relationship, which in turn prevents true love. Or fears, anxieties or lack of self-belief may have prevented you from taking action to move your career forward.
Why do you have these thoughts?
Circumstances in your recent past can affect the way you feel. Yet feelings and ingrained behaviours can develop much further back in your life, even from the moment of birth.
Up to around the age of nine, we are veritable sponges of our surrounding environment. As we develop we tend to take on and absorb everything that is said or happens, whether loving or hurtful.
We may be taught to be tough and not show our feelings, we may be told we are useless, we may have been told we are to be seen and not heard, told to shut up, or told we are loved yet experienced unloving behavior. It all adds-up, it’s all clocked, and we feel it all, whether we like it or not.
Numerous situations made us who we are today. We don’t normally think about these situations unless someone asks or we’re reminded by something. But none the less, the mould has set.
When you reflect on your life, you may be reminded of past negative influences. If you do not feel joyful, confident or self-loving, it is quite possible that you are holding onto past negative feelings.
Ironically, the way to liberate your mind is not via the mind. As you may have experienced, it doesn’t work.
Liberating your mind is about connecting to your body in order to let go of past hurts and release emotional blockages. It’s a healing process which can involve counselling, Gentle Breath Meditation™ and gentle yoga which focuses on the body.
