How to Unblock Your Mind and Clear the Fog Of an Overwhelming Emotion
We are spiritual beings learning how to be human, so, go easy on yourself if your emotional and mental wellness isn’t 100% on target. Nobody’s is, and those who claim it to be are simply putting on a brave, public face.
We all have a public and a private face. Last week my partner and I had an argument and then had to meet friends. We were not faking it when we turned up totally happy, enjoying each other and laughing and chatting with everyone. However, the second we walked back home, it all changed again. This is natural, not fake. It’s the duality of nature. There’s two sides to everything and everyone. So, lets start this advisory article by saying that: you are worthy of love no matter what you’ve done or not done, at least at a spiritual level.
We learn to be human by making mistakes, facing challenges, being hurt, hurting and in many ways through trial and error. It’s easy to buy a book and try to fit the mould of a Christian, a Moslem or jew, or Hindu or Buddhist. But that’s really your public face and the more one sided you become about yourself the more likely you’ll be giving yourself hell in private. Only then, your partner and family get to see the “other side.”
Corporations have codes just like those of religions. Moral and ethics books they call culture and values. These keep your public (at work) face in check but have little or no respect for the consequences this one sided public face at work might drive as the opposite at home.
So, lets begin with a few easy suggestions:
To prevent your mind becoming funky or blocked or even overwhelmed with emotion, is far easier than a fix. So, lets lay track in the realm of prevention first:
THE FUTURE ..By far, the greatest influence on cause and cure of mind funk is the future. When the future is in doubt we become funky. Doubt creeps into every corner of our heart and we become what is clinically called, depressed. Depression is future funk. When we doubt we are in the right skin, job, family, country, sport, suit, shoes, world, or even car, we can become totally funked.
This is the key role of a performance coach. To make sure on one side that you don’t get ahead of yourself. On the other side to make sure you stay 100% committed with conviction that you’re on track to your dreams, goals, and visions.
These visions must be believable and so, the path you set to your vision needs to be set clearly. This is the responsibility of your mentor coach to keep that path clear, pull weeds, put hand holds and keep you focussed.
Funk is human and the solution is to evolve. You can do it.
