Mental Potential

“In the infinity of life where I am,
all is perfect, whole, and complete.” Louise Hay

In order to escape from anxiety you need to be ready and willing to change your mind. You may have felt ready and willing for some time, and yet nothing has happened.

There are two main reasons for this, either you weren’t ready or you didn’t have the right help. When it comes to help, no one person, thought, idea, is sufficient to help a unique individual. You need to rebuild your mind your way.

How?

The question is more ‘where do I start?’ You may be luckier than me, especially in these times of internet searches, inspiration in abundance on social media, and being able to link with more people and more ideas. If you’re taking advantage of all that of course.

The Inspiration Trap

The problem with inspiration is that we read something amazing, note that it is amazing, tell everyone we’ve read something amazing that really reached us, and share, share, share. What we don’t do is put that inspiration into practice.

Inspiration should inspire action!

An Easy Starting Point

Start by filling your mind with new information. Read the type of books you haven’t read before. Find out who the great thinkers are, get into their work, join the pages on social media BUT, and that’s a big but for a reason, be discerning on those pages.

One of the most positive, inspirational people I know who is entirely focused on good mental and physical health, has a page on Facebook where people are constantly asking for healing for themselves and others. Whilst it’s understandable to turn to him, by the same token they’d be better served gifting a copy of his books, meditations, and showing people his video’s on YouTube. That would be positive action.

There are people who do ask the other members what they can suggest to help someone with…whatever…and that is a positive question. But for the most part you won’t start your recovery from anxiety by immersing yourself in the worries of others and being constantly reminded of sadness and unhappiness.

Ensure that your new information is positive, life-affirming, and based on the phenomenal power of the human mind and body. You really are an incredible work of art.

(Not) Self-centred

Avoiding unpleasantness probably sounds a bit self-centred, but frankly you have to be in order to recover.

Nowadays I am able to help a very dear friend through her horrible treatment for an illness. But I’m able to detach myself, know that’s it’s her problem, and focus fully on letting her guide me into what she needs. Years ago I would have done what I’m doing now, but I would have struggled terribly and paid for it afterwards. I just wasn’t well enough to do that sort of thing.

Back to the New Info

To recap:

  • Find new, life affirming, inspiring information.
  • Don’t get caught in the trap of collecting good sayings.
  • Realise that you have to work with this information to make it work for you.
  • Don’t forget you’re unique, so put the new thinking, or many new thinkings, together in a way that works for YOU.

It doesn’t matter how I got better, it only matters how you will. Take every piece of information you find, sift it, and turn it into a jigsaw puzzle to reset your mind and restart your life.

To your happiness

I'm a writer, public speaker, medium, and spiritual thinker. I suffered from acute anxiety from the age of 16 until I was well into my 50s, after fearlessly exploring many ideas, philosophies, and tools, I finally found methods that helped me return my mind to a better normal. One of the things I hated about anxiety was the way people treated me like a fool or a problem, I have two degrees and I'm a (much) retired black belt, my IQ is decent, but I constantly felt like a complete idiot, something that was exacerbated by never feeling like the real me. The girl who could laugh endlessly about the smallest things, and had a real excitement about what life had to offer her. I didn't need anyone else to tell me I wasn't 'right', I knew that better than anyone. My mission now is to support people suffering as I did with a message of support with what they're going through, tools and ideas that might help, and a strong message of hope for the future. At 63, which I am at the time of writing, many people I know are in a rut, yet having beaten anxiety I'm now doing more with my life than I ever did when I was struggling just to get up in the morning, let alone face the day. It's a wonderful feeling - so the main message is that it doesn't matter how long you've been struggling or what age you are, when you beat anxiety you will get an entirely new lease of life - and that's fantastic at any age. On a personal note I'm married to my soul mate, we have 5 cats, and I live in the middle of the UK. I follow a number of fantastic thinkers, as it's important to immerse yourself in healthy thinking as often as you can, I'm a Toastmaster and professional public speaker, and I keep life simple and encourage my clients to do the same, and my friends.
