I am in a Functional Medicine Coaching Certification course right now. We are learning all about the toxins that we take into our body through the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the environments that we expose ourselves into. Toxins like mercury, lead, aluminum, etc.
In order for our bodies to operate optimally, we have to be able to optimize our detoxification. Today I want to talk about detoxing our lives of negative thoughts.
Thoughts are powerful. I have posted blogs before linking Dr. Joe Dispenza’s podcasts. He teaches that what we focus on expands. When we focus on thoughts, we give them life, breathe and energy.
Throughout the last few months I have really tried to be aware and conscious of the thoughts that run across my mind. Sometimes thoughts are random. Sometimes thoughts are introduced by our environment. Thoughts can be spawned from the conversations that you have, the media that we consume, or your minds natural conditioned mode of operation based on past experiences.
I believe that each of us needs to be able to evaluate ourselves and suspend judgement as we evaluate our thoughts and thought processes. We can’t fix something, until we realize that a problem is present. We won’t know a problem is present until we take the time to really dissect and evaluate how our mind works and operates.
I am currently reading this book:
Eddie Capparucci does an amazing job explaining how our thoughts can lead us to act out with addictions. Many times we are trying to escape thoughts or pain, so we seek pornography or sex. The sexual feelings override the pain and even mundane feelings of boredom. Sex and Pornography are such a rush of emotions. It is the most powerful emotions a male can feel.
Does that mean that we need to replace sex and pornography with other adrenaline generating activities? For example, adventurous and dangerous activities? Or does it just have to be something that we are excited and passionate about?
Just something to think about?
