The Mind is one of the three wellness centres of your being (Body Mind Spirit), and more specifically the Brain also has it’s own consciousness and ability to sense emotions that are being felt in the heart and body.
Did you know that your brain consists of a left and right hemisphere? The left handles logic, rationale and system-driven programming where as the right handles creative, instinctive, visual and heart-driven feelings.
Your brain stopped growing when you were 18.
Yawning brings more oxygen to the brain, to cool it down and wake it up.
The conscious mind controls our brain 5% of the day, where as the subconscious mind has a hold of our thoughts for the remaining 95%.
The human brain has 70,000 thoughts per day.
Thoughts are real, and just like the Heart, positive thoughts have biological and physiological benefits on the Mind/Brain, Heart and Body.
Studies have proven that listening to music strengthens the brain, it’s functions and changes its structure.
Every human is born with a brain that possesses natural creativity, survival instinct and an innate compassion for all living beings.
The power of the mind should not be taken lightly, as our thoughts are powerful enough for us to heal ourselves and to bring things into existence.
Internal thoughts have the ability to manifest and materialize in your external world.
Mind Consciousness has multiple levels of awareness within the conscious and subconscious brain states, once you realize the power of the “real conscious” and “awakened subconscious” mind, you can tap into a world of new discoveries, insights and other dimensions!

Unleashing the Power of the Mind
You may have heard that the mind is the ego. Typically your mind comes from a place of ego, fear, worry, overwhelm, limitation and scarcity because of the way it has been heavily programmed by society since we were 5 – 15 years of age. Half of the battle is being able to reverse these limited beliefs that prevent us from opening our mind completely to infinite possibilities and to a freedom without limitations.
1. Being mindful to your inner thoughts, judgements, ways of thinking and verbally expressing how you are feeling. Being true to your feelings and emotions, becoming transparent with your inner thoughts and cravings rather than letting the ego put up a wall of protection, insincerity and false pretense called a “front”. Many use meditation techniques or mindful exercises like square breathing or deep thinking techniques.
2. Observing and acknowledging the raw feeling as thoughts for what they are: anger, frustration, worry, resentment, pain, hurt and disrespect – and being able to release them in a controlled fashion (screaming, beating a punching bag, running for miles, banging your fists or pushing against a wall) with a positive outlet so that these suppressed feelings can be released for good never to be seen again. After all, the mind is the brains, is the “controller” so through mind over matter, the mind can be the positive force for when your body is feeling low and dysfunctional.
3. Stop the negative thinking, and turn it into positive. Transmuting negative thinking, emotions and feelings into positive outlooks e.g. “I hate it when it rains because it makes me gloomy and I can’t go outside to do things” is such a negative and limiting belief that can be changed into “I like it when it rains here because the trees need water to keep it looking lush, on a rain day I can snuggle up on the couch with a warm cup of cocoa and a nice book.”
4. Stop blaming yourself, stop being hard on yourself. No more self criticizing or judgements – change these destructive thought patterns into positive affirmations, praises and acknowledgements of gratitude and blessings. Come from a place of abundance, love and openness rather than from a place of scarcity, resentment and closed mindfulness.
5. Learn when to be appropriately quiet, and when to be vocal. Verbally expressing one’s mind takes energy, and also has a significant cause and effect impact on the people around you and your surroundings. That said, sometimes SILENCE IS GOLDEN. Saying Less IS More. If you do not have something positive to say, it is best to say nothing rather than to start up or enter into a negative confrontation. Internally you can process the feeling in a healthy fashion.
Being calm and composed requires self control, integrity and solidarity. On the flip side to that, sometimes it is necessary for you to express yourself verbally because the outcome would be so fruitful and beneficial to those around you.
Now that you have clarity because your mind’s thoughts are driven from love and not fear, your angle of perception has become that much wider, almost like a big picture aerial view of scenarios in your day-to-day life. Looking at some of these tense situations from 10,000 feet gives it a whole new perspective in the grand scheme of things and in the context of the greater good.
