Today, we’ll take a look at our minds. In the Day 1 post, we explored a bit about the Wood Element, which is most active in Spring. Here are some indicators of a Wood element on the level of mind:
- Poor Judgement
- Difficulty making decisions
- Control issues
- Difficulty relaxing
- Lack of clarity
- Unable to focus
One thing I’ve noticed it that even if someone doesn’t have a Wood imbalance in general, it is somewhat common for people to experience these types of symptoms as we transition from Winter into Spring. And, giving some time and attention to our minds, is a good way to bring about balance in this area.
Here are some questions to help you explore for today:
- Can you think and express yourself clearly?
- Are you intellectually satisfied?
- Does your belief system support you?
- What are the beliefs you are holding on to which are limited or no longer serve you?
- Do you believe in yourself?
- Are you able to focus?
- Can you relax your mind easily?
Today, pay attention to your thoughts. Look for recurring patterns to see which ones support your well-being and which ones may limit your satisfaction and fulfillment in life. Be open to creating new ideas and beliefs that will support your growth. Writing and journaling are great ways to explore our beliefs and begin to explore and release thoughts, which may no longer serve us. You may wish to create a list of limiting beliefs and adding to it as you notice them, so that you can begin to work on letting them go. Awareness is a first step toward transformation.
Make a list of 3 – 5 things you can do to support your mental well-being. And, keep adding to this list as you learn more about yourself.
Also, be sure to celebrate your mind. Give yourself recognition for your own intelligence, talents and abilities!
See you tomorrow!
