The society link thinking with intelligence and engraved the idea that “ the more you think the smarter you are“. But is it really true? Does thinking improve your intelligence….A certain degree of thinking is healthy but if crossed it become overthinking. Which is a word used to describe limitless-thinking. The brain as an organ demand it’s rest. So an exaggerated amount of thinking can actually fatigue the brain. Another negative impact of overthinking is distraction from the real world. more like “living inside your head”mentally moving in a limited space of thought And failing to think out of the box.
Is the thinking the only function of the brain?
No, the brain is not made only to THINK. indeed thinking is not suppose to be done all day long. Thinking must be put to use only when required, other times it’s best to stop thinking. When you don’t think you finally shift into the NOW. you become fully present at the moment. Such shift opens the door to creativity. Physical activities in general can help your mind to rest and turn your focus outward (from the mind into the body). No thinking reconnect you with your body and the world around you in action. In other words you become ALIVE.
Albert Einstein once said _“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me”
NO THINKING = FULL CONSCIOUSNESS
I can’t strop thinking!! and I don’t know what to do when I’m not thinking?
it’s impossible to know the state of consciousness when you are thinking about it. You can only experience consciousness. Think of consciousness as a mystery that needs to be discovered. What I personally do to easily shift my focus from mind to body, is concentrating on something outside of myself…Like my breathing, sound, the silence in-between the sound, the environment or even on one of my body parts. Once I reach my goal i simply reflect or imagine. Conscious is like a muscle, the more you practice it the most likely you will live in it.
INTUITION is that hunting feeling that comes out of no where. It’s an energy sent from the divine that hits your heart, thus it can’t be proven outside of yourself. While most people freak out from such gift, I would tell you it’s NOTHING BUT GOOD. Don’t deny it! because it’s real. Nikola Tesla once said “My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”.. This is immaculately true. All knowledge is the knowledge of God and we’re constantly guided by superior intelligence. I believe intuition serves as a warning or a buzz for attention and you must not ignore it.
According to neuroscience not everyone is intuitive, due to their dominant side of the brain. A person who is “left-brained” is said to be more logical. while a “right-brained” is more intuitive, thoughtful, and subjective. Obviously you’re not missing one of your brain hemispheres; it’s just that one side of your brain is more active or ruling than the other. In spite of this, both sides of your brain are always at work and communicate with one another via Corpus Callosum. Which doesn’t diminish the fact that “left-brained” people can receive an intuitive feeling, Yet they resist it due to disbelief in it’s accuracy.
So back to the main question of this blog, Should you follow your intuition? Absolutely YES, the problem with rational thinking is that our brain as a receiver is exposed to all kind of information and can effortlessly pick an external idea, then later on perceive it as it’s own. which boils down to this, the information in the mind is not 100% YOU or the divine knowledge. Indeed it’s 90% from an external influence. Thus a gut feeling tend to be super accurate in respect to thoughts. If you would ask an intuitive people they will tell you ” my intuition is always correct”, yet you will be shocked at how little they follow their intuition. This’s due to the very fine line between overthinking and taking action. If you don’t move within seconds after having a gut feeling, you might as well deny the feeling in your heart.
Take a shower and your depression will go away. I’m serious! As silly as it sounds it’s true. Depression is caused by external factors of negative energy. It always begin outside then slowly triggers a certain emotion. The emotion grows as you give it attention and in no time it awakens the pain in your heart (unhealed wounds) and become your state of being; what we often call a “MOOD”.
There was a time when I got so busy with tasks and decided to put my self-care as my last priority. I didn’t take a shower for 2 contentious days! GROSS I KNOW. But the lesson I learned from this experiment was BIG. I recognised the dramatic mood swing. When showering you’re not only cleaning your body from dirt, but you’re cleansing your energy too. Our aunt sisters understood that water is the key to life. They referred to water as a cleansing tool for both body and soul. They use to do SPIRITUAL SHOWERS; Where you perform a normal shower but while dropping water on your body you visualise the negative energy falling off you with the water. As if the water is stripping away the negative energy from your body part.
The danger of not showing regularly goes beyond the spiritual and psychological aspects. When you don’t shower your skin PH becomes disturbed. In addition your skin pores gets blocked. When your skin can’t breath you feel DEAD and develop frustration, anger and depression. Your state of being reflects on the outside; through your attitude (transmitted energy) and what you attract (received energy)…In conclusion, not showering can cause a great harm to one self and to the entire world.
A short advice to those who have Been suffering with depression for a very long time. YOU’RE NOT ALONE. Yet just because it’s common it doesn’t mean you should accept it. Get yourself out. Reflect on your lifestyle and what could possibly be feeding your depression. Is it sad energy you watch online? Is it your diet or your self esteem? Or is it the fact that you lock yourself at home? .. Any exaggerated action can produce negative results.
LIVE AS A HUMAN, LIVE THE RIGHT WAY.
I was in a gathering the other day where everybody BRAGED, Showed off what they have or did. Naturally I just don’t like talking about myself, especially showing off! So i stayed silent. The following days I realized the change in attitude of people around me. Obviously the one who showed off the most or in the society’s eyes is “Great” and “Wealthy ” was given respect and honnor. Where for me I was discounte and i got taken by the negativity.
Suddenly it hitted me ..” Just because I don’t show off my greatness, doesnt mean i’m not great“. It’s insane how we can think less of ourselves and believe in other’s opinion of us. Yet worst, make it our reality. We live in an age where Trend is stronger than one’s own voice. Indeed, the society tremendously influence how we perceive ourselves.
THE ASCH CONFORMITY EXPERIMENT; is a psychological experiment done in the 1950’s. The experiment revealed the degree to which a person’s opinion is influenced by those of groups. It proved that the society can suppress our voice. In fact, people were willing to ignore the reality and give an incorrect answer inorder to conform to the rest of the group. See for yourself ;
You’re great and you don’t need to prove it! No, you don’t need to mimic the false greatness (The Greatness measured with materialistic ownership). Greatness is already within you. True greatness in what’s inside you. At the end of life the only memory will be left of you after you die, is the memories you gave to others. Not your big house or your fancy cars, but how many hearts you’ve touched.
ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IS AN ACT OF INTELLIGENCE IN A WORLD FULL OF CONFORMIST _ Nikola Tesla.
What is the soul? Your soul is yourself. The reality of who you are. Indeed you’re nothing more than a deadless, formless and timeless soul. The idea that when your body get sick, your soul get sick which result into death is incorrect. Instead it’s because of a sick soul the body gets sick. “We’re not a human beings having a spiritual experience, we’re spiritual beings having a human experience. ”
I want you to imagine a building as your body and it’s base as your soul. The building consist of a strong structure yet if something happens to the base the whole building will fall off . On the other hand If something happens to the top structure the base will remain unaffected. The structure of the building can always be rebuilt; but the base can’t be recovered without destroying the entire building including the base.
My point is, a healthy soul is essential for survival. You must have a strong base in Order to overcome all storms of life. The amazing thing about the human soul is that it doesn’t ask for much! It doesn’t require sleep or food or money etc… It already have a permemnent life. The only thing the soul needs is a connection with it’s creator, thus a spiritual connection with god is important, it’s the only way the soul can charge itself and stay alive.
- How do I practice spiritual Connection ?
Spiritual connection can be done through praying or meditating. Basically setting an alone time with god, taking to GOD and acknowledging GOD’S existence. The process of god consciousness is a door way for the soul to connect with it’s master. The absence or lack of this process can be described as heaviness in the chest and you can actually tell that your soul exhausted and intoxicated by the materialistic world.
- How is the soul toxicated by the materialistic world?
The soul have a different nature than the body. The things that the body enjoy and desire; will not satisfy the soul. For example you see people with a sick soul and are very determined on the body’s needs. sadly they reach a certain point where their soul breaks.
I think the greatest disease of our time is the whole “follow” thing. People don’t question anything anymore! It became the norm to follow everything and everyone without the understanding of why.
Have you ever wondered about the reason behind celebrating christmas? The reason behind Muslims wearing head scarf “hijab”? Or why Jewish people kiss the doorpost on entering a room ( whether there’s a mezuza or not)… Maybe dive into history with an open mind and the intention of learning. Always use “why”. ONLY WHEN WE COME TO UNDERSTAND THE PAST, WE CAN BUILD A BETTER FUTURE. The problem with no curiosity is that, it shuts down your brain and as a result insult your capacity to think. You become insignificant, just a follower. A number that’s used to benefit those who do have a voice.
No curiosity = inactive mind = equivalent to animals.
So you are depressed! Let me ask you a few questions before you scroll further.
- Why are you depression? ..
- Do you actually care about the “thing” that made you depressed?
- Do you think you have control over your reality?
Often people say “You can’t control what happen to you, you can only control what how you react to it”. But what if I told you “you can control both“…The external reality is a reflection of the inner state. When you get your inner self healed, the external world will automatically align. The only reason you’re depressed is because you’re focused on the negative, on what you think you don’t have control on and what you focus on grows. As a circumstance you’re allowing your depression to grow beyond your happiness.
The truth is there’s no good or bad, everything is neutral by nature. Our mind is the instrument that define things. When your mind patterns is defining everything as “BAD”, no wonder why you’re depressed! Negative thinking patterns produce negative emotions and the emotions then create a reaction that attract a certain reality. You’re reaction controls the event, the event doesn’t control your reaction. Furthermore, The reaction you give is the product of an emotion . the emotion is born from a certain mindset or what we call a perspective. It’s like a chain reaction where one thing drag the rest. For example when you’re stuck in a traffic jam you can simply enjoy the sunset view ( turning this moment into joy) or dwel on the fact that you’re “stuck in the crowd”.
The key to happiness is to look at everything as it is, with a neutral perspective. No judgment and exactly how Shakespeare said ” NOTHING IS GOOD OR BAD BUT THINKING MAKES IT SO “. No situation is either good or bad, instead our thoughts is what define every situation. When you start perceiving things from a neutral perspective we will realise the sense of ease to accepting the situation as it is. which then will allow the energy to flow.
The law of detachment insures you that your burning desire will manifest once you LET GO . You see! when you hold on into something so tight it will slip away, your pressure will hurt it. Leaving a room for air is necessary to energy flow. Sure! Have a burning desire that drives you out of bed everyday. But not a Need that destroy you and whatever you love. If your goal didn’t get manifested, you need to your energy align your energy with your goal. You need to vibrate in the same frequency as what you’re trying to attract. Because in quantum physics energies with the same wave length and frequency travel together.
BECOME CONNECTED TO EVERYTHING AND ATTACHED TO NOTHING. I know how hard it is to let go of something you desperately want. indeed it’s human nature cling on things and resist change. But the truth is you don’t need what you’re seeking and you can live without it. If you truly needed it, god would have blessed you with it right away. You’re already complete, Believe in yourself and the universe.
