Everyone wants a strong, healthy body. How about a strong, healthy mind?
This subject is particularly important with the rise in Alzheimer’s disease cases. With more people being affected, there is an urgent need to fortify the brain. Alzheimer’s and other kinds of dementia incubate for a long time. It can take many years to develop, so this is a good time to bolster your mind, and by extension, your brain.
What’s more, we want to go beyond just preserving our mind. We want to keep it as fresh and energized as possible.
What is “Mind”?
We are referring to “mind” as your consciousness that directly influences your physical body and brain.
* In turn, the body and mind are influenced by the environment.
* Also the brain, like the body, is material; the mind is immaterial.
Five Lessons from the Body to Have a Strong Mind
To get clues about a healthy mind, let’s consider characteristics of a healthy body. Since the body is physical, it’s easier to see what makes it work well.
We all want to succeed. To rewire your brain for ultimate success, two important questions then follow:
What does success mean?
How do you make sure you are going in the right direction?
Most people at first are drawn to the outer trappings of success: wealth, possessions, status, things. This can be useful, necessary and fun. But it is limited if it eventually it doesn’t connect to what those outer manifestations point to: the underlying energies of success.
In other words, at a certain point success needs to be connected to deeper things, more inward development than outward accomplishment. Namely, a deeper sense of security, meaning, purpose, fulfillment and contribution. This inner shift first takes awareness, then some time, some effort and focus. Continue reading
We’d like to introduce you to Awakenings Institute’s latest outreach: The Heart Campaign. This campaign may be the ultimate solution for spiritual living. Anyone can join in this practical way to change the world.
Love is, after all, the ultimate solution.
Our goal is to provide a means of participation for those who look at what’s happening in the world and recognize there’s a better way. What if we could create a more loving world where everyone is honored and nurtured?
It warms the heart to stand up for something that makes a positive difference. In our hearts, we sense that we’re here to live happily, to expand our horizons, and to come together to create a better world. Love and happiness are essential to our well-being.
It saddens our hearts to watch how hostile our interactions with each other have become, both personally and collectively. While we all want the same things – well-being, happiness, freedom, new possibilities – we oppose the very things that could transform our lives.
Our Solution for Spiritual Living
Simply stated, the ultimate solution for spiritual living is to actively promote love wherever we are and wherever we go. What might be possible if we foster love in our communities each day by sharing hearts and inviting others to join us?
This is a campaign that unites rather than divides, while promoting the ultimate solution to the troubles that plague our world. Anyone can do this and we have created two designs to pass out. The image to the left is our first design.
Everyone knows it’s good to exercise. It lowers the risk of disease, boosts your energy, improves your memory and sleep and much more… To make things easier, it’s good to get practical healthy living tips.
But most don’t realize you also want to exercise your other bodies: your emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. So here is a menu to help you get healthier on all levels.
Our answers to the age-old questions – “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” and “Where am I going?” – form the foundation of our lives. It makes sense. Your perspectives on who you are, why you are here, and where you are going become your reality. These questions also define three lines of transformational personal and spiritual development.
Each of us is unique, as are our responses to these age-old questions.
How do you deal with negative emotions? We all have difficult times: setbacks, losses and the consequences of poor choices. The more time you have lived longer you live, the more challenges you’ll face.
Of course, we want to shorten the times we experience negative impact and quickly recover and restructure. We also want to learn and grow from life’s challenges and hardships.
With uncertainty and tough times come troubling emotions: doubt, anxiety, loneliness and fear.
Releasing negative emotions is about reframing them. Let’s see how to reframe – look at through a different lens — challenging feelings that we inevitably face throughout life
We’ve been students and teachers of human potential, the nature of our reality, and the deeper meaning of life for a few decades now. We have explored the vast realms of spirit and the fulfillment that comes from bringing spirit fully into form. In the process, we discovered elements of what we now call the Ultimate Paradigm Shift.
Science is now proving universal truths that many of the the greatest minds in history have repeatedly shared through the ages. Unfortunately, few have really heard them. These truths are observable and many people are seeing that truth is stranger than the fiction humanity has created about the nature of reality.
Evidence is mounting that the way most people understand reality has everything turned around and upside down. Continue reading
In our work as holistic coaches and trainers, we continue to be amazed and inspired by the way everything is connected. Within each of us, a beautiful wholeness – an integration of the body, emotions, mind, and spirit – is occurring as our awareness of our true identities emerges. Everything in our inner and outer experience is significant in relation to the big picture of who we really are: wonderful spiritual beings who are here for a reason, each with dreams and unique gifts to share.
Isn’t this perspective inspiring?
The transformational potential of our emotional and spiritual intelligence is a key factor in our journey to wholeness. This potential also applies to our intelligence at the mental and even physical levels of our being. Exploring these vast inner resources has taken us into new territories and higher heights that have transformed countless lives.
With a holistic approach, you can become aware of how the body, emotions, mind, and spirit contain pieces of the puzzle of who we are and why we are here. Awareness is a key and each level of our being can speak to us in profound ways when we learn how to access our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual intelligence.
