What does it mean to truly detox your mind? Did you ever wish you could just clear your brain, and either fall asleep or power down for a few moments?
Below are some steps you can take to free yourself from your overworked brain.
In an interview Shoshana Hanson CSMC, certified stress management coach of ISFit Coaching explained that ISFit stands for Inner Self Fitness. Hanson said that when you detox your mind, you find your truth.
One of Hanson’s first recommendations is to meditate. Meditation is not about turning your mind off. It's about quieting the chatter.
What comes through is the truth, which filters out what is working for you and what is not, making everything clear and focused.
Hanson uses an introspective meditative technique (IMT) in her practice with her clients.
To begin this guided meditation, she gives instruction to her clients to take deep breaths and breathe a white light into their third-eye connection.
The third eye is believed to be located in the center of the forehead between the eyes. Hanson says it can connect us to a higher power.
According to BalanceChakra.com, “The Third Eye Chakra is the 6th Chakra and is responsible to what we refer to as 'the sixth sense.' The Chakra connects us to our internal intuitions and is responsible for the sharp senses, the ability to read the future and receive non-verbal messages.”
She'll ask them to visualize a topic — where they may be with it, and what it looks like. How does it bother them? What are their feelings? What are they seeing?
Clients may respond that they're seeing a field of flowers or a calming path they can choose. Others experience the shutting of a big heavy door on their problem, or closing out the person causing the problem, which allows them to feel lighter.
Hanson said, “When something does not serve you it pulls you down and you feel heavy energetically. When you let it go you feel light and happy energetically with a feeling like something resonates with you.”
