Well let’s just say it is not me but a mentor told me this.
But it hits different when you understand the meaning. It is way too deep to be overlooked.
Off late learning the ways of a healer has been quite an introspective process. Yes, I do that! A lot of people think this path to be something irrational and delusional. The amount of hate that is shown to anything that is considered “witchy” is exactly why people would not bother so much about mental health. It is so shocking at the same time like how do you then adopt a faith that is not visible? It is the faith that is always inside you. It is the dogma that you see around you.
The journey of establishing care for the psyche has been rocky but I am so glad how the younger generation has taken up this movement of giving importance to mental health. You see it is so oddly fantastic how every action of ours are wired with our beliefs; either learnt or acquired. Being able to keep our thoughts in a straight path requires great courage and intention.
It is always the weak soul and the conditioned mind that would change the narrative of showing gratitude to begging for security. It is the same soul and mind that would sort for “black magic” as they say because they feel insecure in their skin, about their credibility and existence. Now it may not be something magical but may be that co worker or the family member who would try to pull you down because he or she is jealous of how you look, your pay package, your happiness. That is enough dark intention to be transpired into black magic. Are you one of them?
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
If I take the mental well-being part; don’t you think having dark intentions for others is a matter of your infirmity?
We fall prey of these chaos in our mind so much that we forget to thank the very necessary support to the shelter of our psyche; the air in our lungs! Lungs in the body! It might come off as something funny and lame to a lot of people. Try it for yourself. Breathe anytime you feel like your lover is driving you crazy. Breathe when you want to disown your family. Breathe when you feel hopeless. Breathe when you want to blow up your money on a gadget that might not serve you a purpose. You have the clear picture for everything in your head. Just Breathe.
Let the thinking juices flow!
