One of the most powerful things about a Mind Detox session is the intention you set at the beginning of the session. This might be to be more confident, to be comfortable in open spaces, to be in a happy and healthy relationship or to be free of pain and comfortable again.
There is something inextricably powerful about making a commitment to achieving an outcome.
I have yet to experience a Mind Detox session that hasn’t shifted something for the person I am working with, nor have I ever left a session done on me thinking it is a wasted experience. Something always shifts and a stress is let go of, every time.
It is the combination of intention, commitment and a trust in my ability to help myself and the plasticity of the brain that enables the mind to shift and the outcome to be achieved.
Yesterday I experienced my own perfect example. As a former M.E. sufferer, I know tiredness and I know what to do to manage it. It crossed my mind though, what if I Mind Detoxed myself on tiredness? I did and bingo, up came a very very poignant and relevant memory. I remembered in my early years being put to bed before all my siblings (I was the youngest and then later the second youngest), whilst everyone else was playing outside in the summer evening sun. My root cause reason was scared – I’m alone and I am not safe.
As soon as I realised that at home, in my cot/room I was completely safe and protected and more safe than if I was outside, my tiredness INSTANTLY shifted – I didn’t have to be on red alert any more!
I realise now, that there has always been a direct correlation for me between being alone and being tired. Being a bit of an independent and free spirit, I have had many many a reason to be alone and therefore feel unsafe, which played out as being tired – constantly!
I have done so many Mind Detoxes now, on myself and others, I am totally comfortable and confident with the stress-releasing shifts they can bring. I have seen miraculous outcomes for those brave and willing enough to pursue the journey to better health and the life they dream of.
If there was one thing in the world that I would do to help others to experience the life they deserve, is to Mind Detox them so they know they deserve it – and that the life that they seek, is seeking them too.
