The subconscious, conscious, and superconscious parts of the mind require self-mastery to experience inner peace and personal fulfillment. Become the master of your mind and it will serve you well. A healthy mindset allows you to stand tall, branch out, and be strong.
“I found that when you start thinking and saying what you really want then your mind automatically shifts and pulls you in that direction. And sometimes it can be that simple, just a little twist in vocabulary that illustrates your attitude and philosophy.” ~ Jim Rohn
Your subconscious mind runs 95% of your life and it's up to you as an adult to give it direction. This level of the mind is where you store your beliefs about yourself and the world. Your limiting beliefs can be brought to the surface by observing any negative behavior you've been unable to change.
Ask yourself what kind of limiting belief you would need to have about...

Think of your immune system as an energy field that either gets charged or drained by its environment. You can become more immune to disease, stress, worry, fear, and doubt by pausing to reset your biological systems.
“As you begin to heal the inner you, you alter your immune system.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Reset your immune system to protect you from disease with the best possible nutrition, supplements, herbs, hydration, exercise, sleep, rest and relaxation. You can also supercharge your immune system by tapping on your upper chest to stimulate your thymus gland. Do this for twenty seconds three times a day to generate more T cells.
Your cardiovascular and respiratory systems can be reset from from fear to love by tuning into your heart while breathing deeply. It helps to place your hands over the center of your chest and focus on the mantra: I am love. Feel deep appreciation for your strong beating heart and clear breathing lungs...

Self-trust begins when you realize what your body needs to thrive, and provide it. Our bodies depend on Mother Earth for oxygen, water, food, and shelter. This basic interconnectedness is the source of physical well-being.
“The body never lies.” ~ Martha Graham
The combination of a furry friend and the great outdoors is a health prescription you can trust to elevate your well-being.The only side effects are a deeper connection with your four-legged companion and Mother Nature.
Forest Bathing is a practice that supports the immune system. Simply by walking among the trees your health will be enhanced by the wood essential oils being emitted in the air. Strolling through a forest also strengthens all of your senses, including intuition.
Listen to what your body is saying. It's always speaking to you through symptoms and sensations. Your body could be directing you to spend more time outdoors because on this...
Get outdoors today and connect with nature. Nature calms your nervous system and opens your mind to your soul’s wisdom and guidance. Come to your senses by paying attention to what you see, hear, taste, touch and smell. Engage your sixth sense as well by quieting your mind and listening to your intuition. One of the best ways to quiet the chatter of the mind is to become fully present with your body in the moment.
If you can’t get outdoors, here’s a guided meditation to connect with nature:
After connecting with nature, write in a journal any new insights or ideas that you received. Feel free to also email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy Wisdom Wednesday!

Being fully engaged in the present is liberating. Mindfulness switches your brain from autopilot to full sensory childlike wonder. This shift in consciousness frees you to live in the eternal moment of now.
Declare “I Am Being Mindful” and consider this quote: “Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
Being mindful includes observing yourself without any judgment. When you see yourself from your soul’s perspective you will allow thoughts to come and go, emotions to rise and fall away, and you’ll calmly respond to what’s happening rather than react mindlessly.
Mindlessness causes stress and anxiety. This happens when the mind is jumping around from the past to the future; not paying attention to the what’s going on in the present. Develop mindfulness and you’ll turn off the stress response, activate the relaxation response, and return to...
Your aliveness is nurtured by radical self-care. An empty inner well doesn’t serve anyone because it eventually dries up from overuse. Your aliveness comes from finding your balance and living in harmony.
Declare “I am alive and well” as you reflect on this quote by Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
A well that is full has plenty to share and finds itself surrounded by beauty. It’s an inviting place to visit because it’s brimming with aliveness. Fill up your own well today by taking good care of yourself and notice how it naturally spills over and benefits others.
Wellness is an inside job. The image of filling up a well is the perfect metaphor for self-care. Imagine an empty well with nothing left to give as a way of remembering the value of restoring balance.
Self-care is more than a...
When you meet high challenges with high skills, you enter a state of flow. This is where time stands still through the power of full engagement. You’re focused, you know what to do, you have the skills to do it, and you feel happy.
Declare “I Am Entering a Flow State” and reflect on this quote: “To be able to concentrate for a considerable time is essential to difficult achievement.” – Bertrand Russell
To challenge yourself physically, set a goal that matches your skills. While fully engaged in the challenge you will hit your peak performance state when you merge with the experience, lose yourself, everything feels right, and moving your body becomes effortless.
Engage in a creative task that requires your intense focus, clarity, and concentration. In this case the task is intrinsically rewarding. You will be creating for the pure joy of creating something new.
Being in a flow state raises productivity and creativity. It means setting...
When your body, mind and heart are aligned with your spirit, you’re in a natural state of balance. There is great value in creating a balanced life from the inside out. It gives you the power to live your life on your own terms.
Declare “I Am Creating a Balanced Life” and start today.
