I have recently spoken about addressing the elephant in the room in my last blog and trying to solve what I feel has become an epidemic. On a daily basis, everywhere that I seem to be or look I am affected by more and more people dealing with depression, anxiety or some form of mental illness. Perhaps I’m just so in tune with peoples emotions that I am picking up on their energy and with this it has brought me to the frontline and confronting it head on. Im by no means a saviour, nor am I one to recuse another, but I do believe that part of my life’s journey is to mirror back what lies within another person and making them aware of what may lay dormant. Those unresolved thoughts, feelings and emotions that keep resurfacing but are yet to find a resolution or even coming to peace with their own demons.
There’s so many close to me right now that are battling with their own demons, demons that are all in their mind and the mind has a funny way of taking control of your life and your emotions. Ultimately if you don’t learn to control the mind the result ends up being that the emotions run the show.
The problem then lies that we loose the battle and allow it to become king, the battle then goes to another level and you find yourself in a dark place where you keep feeding those thoughts and then those emotions grow larger than life.
Im about to embark on this topic and dive a little deeper with it, because the question you need to be asking yourself is why this is occurring more and more so now, where exactly are its original roots and why are so many suffering as a result?
I truly believe that we are all here to help one another in some way, shape or form. That our existence has been so far removed from our true purpose and that in order to find a solution we really need to come back to perception of truth.
Perception is your reality, and another person has their own perception of their reality which is their truth. How we see things, how we experience them and how we perceive them creates our world. When we remain open minded this then allows us to see from another persons point of view or simply put their perception and this is where we can learn from one another.
Im using this as an example because it relates back to your childhood and how our reality was created based on our experiences, our environment, our upbringing. With this comes our freewill which in other words is our choices in life. Choice comes down to thought process and how we have conditioned our minds to think, feel and act/react. Our past experiences whether they be bad or good sets us up for how we make future choices.
In order to know bad from good, you first need to experience what bad and good are to you. Your perception plays its role now and the reality is set. Lets just say that you have experienced something bad in your life and that conjured up an emotion within you, you then hold that experience as a red flag, that red flag then becomes your reality, so later on in life if an experience that resembles that red flag resurfaces again then your perception believes its reliving it all over again. Choice then comes into play, do you act or react? Then lesson says to you, ‘How are you going to play this one out”?
On the flip side, you’ve experienced something good in your life and the beauty with this is that with bad comes good because one cannot live without the other. You can’t create your reality without experiencing both ends of the spectrum, and with these opposing occurrences in life one learns to know everything from that being emotions, feelings and experiences is in fact relevant to each other.
This vicious circle will keep recurring because the lesson is still yet to be learnt. When we break that cycle and change our perception thats when our mind shifts. Welcome to life!
The elephant in the room with the riddle now has a choice of whether it wants to be solved!
part 3 will continue in my next blog.
