If I close my eyes, it only take s a second to be in a world that is colourful and wondrous, with my imagination I can create anything, music that inspires nations, verse that softens the toughest hearts and turn a canvas a visual feast for the eyes.
Have you ever stopped to marvel at how amazing the conscious mind really is? Our conscious minds are so incredible and so powerful that with a single thought we can experience the euphoria of love and in the next feel the pain of our deepest fears. The millisecond of a wayward thought is enough to set in play biochemical reactions that can negatively influence emotions and bring to the fore our deepest and darkest fears.
To live with anxiety can be like experiencing four seasons in a single day. The day starts with fine sunny weather, by afternoon the clouds have set in and by night it’s a raging storm. It’s the power of our mind coupled with irrational fears that allows anxiety to be powerful and appear so very real.
It’s my belief that our deepest fears come to bare when anxiety is charge. I mentioned in my last post about the significance of nutrients especially minerals. This is in essence one part of the success I have had dealing with my anxiety. My success with anxiety could be compared to learning a new sport, understanding the game as well as acquiring new skills and habits to succeed. While writting this post I walked through the things which I do each day to help manage my anxiety and I have called them the 7 Primary Foundations.
The 7 Primary Foundations:
1. Essential Nutrients and Trace Elements (Plant Based Vitamins and Minerals)
2. pH Balanced diet
3. Regular Exercise that Combines a Body Mind Connection
4. Regulation of Thoughts and Behavioral Triggers (Specific Brain Training)
5. Emotional Awareness (The Human Factor)
6. Evaluation of Environmental Factors
7. Working with a Coach / Practitioner
I also want to leave you with my perspective on how the conscious mind likes to play. I like to think of the conscious mind as if it were like a small child, that knows no differently until it’s shown how to act and what is the right way to behave. If you take anything from this article, YOU ARE IN COMMAND! Especially your conscious mind. I will share some more tips soon too.
This is not intended to be a Natural Cure for Anxiety but my perspective as a Naturopath coupled with my experiences. Like they say always consult a health professional before making changes.
