Your mind controls everything you do. That seems like a general and rhetorical statement, but have you ever stopped to really consider it with all its implications? Your brain is responsible for controlling your breathing, body functions, health, and well-being. You can control your anxiety, fear, movements, mood, and beliefs by using your mind. Why then do so many ignore it? Your mind works in conjunction with your spirit to allow you to tap into powerful healing in a way that modern medicines can’t. Now is the time to connect your body, mind, and spirit to maximize your potential in life. These are just a few of the many techniques you can learn and practice to unlock this potential.
For those new to the mind-body-spirit connection, simple meditation and mindfulness practices are the place to start. The benefits of meditation include greater awareness of yourself and your surroundings, a feeling of centeredness in your life, and mental clarity and contentment. There are many forms of meditation, both attached to spiritual beliefs as well as separate from them. Try a few out to find a practice that suits your beliefs and comfort level. The benefits of meditation are typically garnered over time, so regular practice with one technique is important. Good meditations for beginners include quiet mind, concentration meditation, mindfulness meditation, and yogic meditation. Regular meditation has been shown to improve mental health and even reverse your brain’s aging, so why wait to begin?
Another great way to support the mind-body connection is to take care of your body. Exercise and diet are excellent places to start, but many supplements are available to help the body be its best. While proven by science to benefit the body and mind, some of the most potent and impactful supplements are not widely available to the general population. Luckily, many products are widely available and are still very beneficial. Reshi mushroom powder aids in sleep, anxiety, stress and supports the immune system. Red superfood powder enhances the immune system and is packed with antioxidants. Turmeric, collagen powder, among others, are a few of the plethora of other supplements shown to benefit the body.
Open Your Chakras
Yogic chakra practices are akin to meditation with a larger focus on spiritualism and harmonizing the body and mind. Misaligned chakras result in feelings of unease, disconnectedness, and unhappiness. There are seven chakras, each with its own supporting yogic pose and mantra. Opening the chakras balances the energy in your body and harmonizes your mind and spirit. While it is possible to open the chakras in any order, it’s recommended to begin with the Root Chakra and advance through the seven in order. There are many guides to this process, and you can find in-person centers in most major cities.
Materials for Health
You can also support your mind-body connection by wearing items made from special materials. Different minerals and materials have been shown to have beneficial effects on the body when worn or carried. Quantum pendants are one such item. They are made from over seventy natural minerals that emit body-enhancing energies.
Other materials such as crystals, precious gems, and certain stones have varying benefits that can help center the mind and support the body. Clear quartz is the most well-known of these materials. It is called the “Master Healer” and is said to aid memory and concentration and regulate and amplify energies. Jasper is another popular pendant to wear. Its properties include absorbing negative energies, promoting courage and confidence, and empowering the spirit to help you through stressful times. The benefits of such materials cannot be ignored. They make an excellent addition to your mind-body connection journey.
Nurturing your mind and its connection to your spirit and body is an often overlooked but vastly important part of your health. Having a holistic, natural, and sometimes mystical approach to connecting your body-mind-spirit takes some dedication. The journey is worth the reward, however, as you will feel more yourself than ever before.
