WE DETOX OUR BODIES BUT FORGET TO DETOX OUR MINDS!

Here’s a flashback to a post from 2018.

One of the most powerful things I learned from Dr. Dre was how to manifest my reality!  “Anything I can think of, I can have.” He took the time to have one of the most important conversations in my life with me. A socially awkward young girl trying to find my way in life, build my career and date successfully. From that conversation, the best thing I learned was the power of my mind and my speech.

I’m sure you have heard of “The Law of Attraction” or “The Secret.” Our mind works in images, so we have to purge any and every negative one possible. On average, studies show it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic; so, that’s 66 days to be exact. If you really want to change the course of your life, take the next 66 days and give yourself the fair chance to be who you always wanted to be.

Step #1

It’s is important to get adequate sleep, so the conscious mind relaxes, and we can start to access the subconscious mind. Before you go to bed, you need to imagine the true you.  Devote 10 minutes to the beautiful person you are, watch yourself manifesting all the money you want, that dream career, the dream self-image. When you envision the person you want to be, you help change your conscious mind into the person you were meant to be.

Step #2 

Speak positive to yourself and everyone around you.

Step #3

Approach everything with love even when others are evil. (This can be hard in the midst of conflict, but your calmness and smile will make others uneasy and make yourself laugh.)

Step #4

Start looking up instead of down. I know it sounds silly, but please go outside. Look up in the sky and try hard to think of anything negative. It’s hard right. Now look down and think negative. Crazy, that was too easy, huh?  Spend your days looking at the sky!

Step #5

Stay away from the media & social media.

Stop watching the news.

Stop listening to the radio.

Avoid gossip at all cause! It’s as TOXIC as eating fast food.

Stop negative thoughts.

Which of these steps are you already doing or plan on trying?

SO, I’M AN INTROVERT. I’M NOT BORED OR SAD. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH ME!

Here’s a post from 2019 for #flashbackfriday.

Yes, I am happiest alone and tend to shy away from people as much as I can.  As I grow older, I realize it’s because I am somewhat of an empath. Energy transfers and a lot of y’all have fucked up energy! Even many that I love have horrible energy and I have no desire to feel it. Even when you’re not complaining, the fact that you’re not happy in life weighs heavy on a empath’s heart.

I used 2 be the type who helped everyone and was somewhat of a fixer. If I could fix your issues, your self-esteem or help you pay your bills, I would but that shit is emotionally and financially draining. I’m over it and have divorced that part of my former self. In result, I also divorced many friendships willingly.

Now, I enjoy my peace. It doesn’t mean I don’t like you…but if you can’t share my space often, it might mean your energy just drains me. Have you ever gotten off the phone with someone and you all of a sudden were physically tired and depressed, but right before the call you were happy and energetic? I don’t mean a call that delivered bad news or a death but a regular call from the homie? That means energy transferred now you are carrying their vibe with you, until you shake it off or transfer it back to someone else. I hate that feeling. I no longer wish to take on other people’s emotions. By myself, I’m chill with no drama. Except my drama of motherhood but that’s my entertainment!

I have friends who think they are being sweet, but they get on my nerves tryna force me to be positioned in social situations. I try to explain it to them, but they don’t get it. I don’t need more friends, I don’t want nobody else calling my phone, I aint tryna hang out. I’m tryna chill at Chuck E Cheese, not a bar, a social gathering, or anywhere with these grown folks. I could be doing something with my kid! I’ve spent my entire life being social. I literally want to spend some time being left alone. I don’t see why that’s so hard to understand.

My whole point in writing this was to say preserve your mental health by guarding the energy you allow to share your personal space.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY – MY MOST POPULAR POST SO FAR

I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE COUNTED A CALORIE!

I believe it’s more important to focus on the ingredients in your meal than the calories of your meal. Here is where my old Boss, Tyrone’s saying “KISS” comes into play. Keep It Simple Stupid! Quality over Quantity! 

Cutting out energy-dense, unhealthy items is crucial to weight loss. It’s more important to pay attention to what you’re eating! Watching the sugar grams and sodium intake, if you want to watch something.

The counting calories thing can throw you off because although avocados and nuts are high in calories, they are packed with nutrients like fiber and healthy fats that can promote weight loss. See how lines get blurred? Trusted Source

It’s all about having a healthy relationship with food! Make sure you are picking foods based on what nourishes your body rather than obsessing over which foods are “good” or “bad”. 

Rule of thumb if it says “Diet,” don’t touch it! The word diet within itself is a scam. Diet soda, salad dressings, and prepackaged meals are all full of chemicals and artificial sweeteners. If you are interested in learning more about nutrition or simply refreshing your relationship with food, hit me up for a nutritional consultation. Check out my wellness programs at teamcheriej.com.
