Nourishing the Mind

Summer season is here and many of us are enjoying the warmer weather – spending time with friends, family, being outside and just going through the notions. Even though a good time is being had, it’s important to remember to maintain brain health as well. The more healthy your brain is, the more connected to yourself and to your spirituality you become, and the more peaceful you are as a person overall. 

Meditation and mindfulness are one of the most ancient practices and easiest to do anywhere and at any time. As long as you allow yourself to quiet the distractions in your mind, you are able to be in the present moment and connect with that inner voice. Scientifically, meditation has been shown to increase gray matter in the brain, improve concentration, and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Keeping up with this practice on a consistent basis will foster a calm and focused mind, creating a fertile ground for cognitive health, which, in turn, create more space and capability for new pathways in the brain to develop. 

These new pathways are what allow your mind to adhere to healthier habits, smarter and happier ways of thinking, improved logic and better emotional regulation during stressful moments. Some other ways that can also bring peace of mind, as well as nourishment to your brain, are reflection, journaling and Reiki. On a spiritual level, Reiki can help in opening up your heart and mind to an elevated state of consciousness. Being open and experiencing this energy flow from source will bring you a higher level of peace, welcoming clarity and insight. With Reiki healing, you are able to set meaningful goals and intentions for your life that appear to be much more clear for you, ultimately providing direction and purpose along your spiritual journey. 

Additionally, brain health can be boosted by a change in diet and physical practices. The importance of nutrition in terms of your mental state, and emotional state is grand. Foods rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins are essential for optimal brain function. Incorporating whole, unprocessed foods, such as leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish, can protect the brain from oxidative stress and inflammation, which are linked to cognitive decline. As for exercise, moving the body boosts blood flow to the brain, promoting the growth of new neurons and pathways. 

Here at Self-Empowered Minds, we encourage the growth and nourishment of not only your spirit, but your brain, mind and body! Visit us for an experience with either our Reiki Circle Class or our One-on-One  Reiki Session with one of our lovely and skilled practitioners.  If you find yourself ready to take this to the next level and do self-healing or even heal others, then our Reiki Training may be just the thing for you. We have all levels of Reiki Training to provide a Reiki certificate to perform Reiki on yourself, others, teach and develop extraordinary intuitive skills. Remember, the journey of healing has so many levels and facets to it, simply try to make better conscious decisions with meaning and purpose, and soon you will feel even closer to the peace and connection with your self that you are yearning for. 

Our mission is to help you find your inner greatness so you can Live Life Empowered!
