The Mind Spirit Connection

Body_Mind_SpiritA human being is made up of three divisions: mind, body and spirit. You could not live on the material plane if one of these divisions were missing. So first of all let us consider what the mind is then the body and finally the spirit then see what the connection is.

What is the mind?
Is the mind separate from the brain? How does what happens in the body, especially what happens in the brain, affect the mind , and vice versa? A lot of people think that the mind is the physiological brain. There are many truths that would confirm this type of reasoning. The brain is the location of both conscious thought and creativity. Also with the help of the nervous system of the spinal cord and the network of nerves that branch to every part of the body; the brain is also in control of all body movement. This nervous system also interplays with endocrine glands to affect other systems and body functions. The brain is also used to reason by interpreting the information which is around you: the information you take in through your eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin. A lot of people are confused about this because the thing is you do not reason with the brain. The brain is just a physical vehicle for that elusive energy we call the mind to manifest itself from. You must then reason with the mind, and if so the mind must be something extra to the body and brain.

What is the body?
The body is the physical form we manifest on the earth plane. It is made up of a group of connected parts, and systems: such as the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems etc. including organs and tissues, that carry out particular functions , such as breathing and digestion. The human body can maintain health and survive only if all systems in the body work together. The body is the shell without a body a person cannot exist on the earth plain. Every living thing on earth has a body after its own kind; they also have intricate systems that maintain their existence. Some believe that it is only humans that have a spirit (soul). Others believe that everything that exist on the earth plain has a mind, body and spirit. As soon as life ends all shells (bodies) rot and crumble to dust. It is amazing how much we have in common with every thing around us.

What is the spirit/soul? The spirit is an invisible inner power. The spirit is supposed to be what makes us human separating us from animals who stay alive by baser instincts. The thing is I do not agree with that idea. I think that everything that breaths on earth has a spirit. The thing is having a spirit allows you to tell the difference between right and wrong. The spirit is the basis of your passion, motivation, aspirations, and love. Think of your spirit as your emotional centre. Without the spirit you really would be dead.

So in order for you to function in a healthy manner on the material plain your mind, body and spirit need to be in harmony. You could say that the connection between them is that the body is the vehicle through which the spirit manifest it self on earth. The mind is what educates the spirit on its journey through life on earth and on other plains, such as the astral and other elusive planes.

The Inner Coach – The Voice of Self Belief

dream itDo you remember when the last time was when you asked yourself, “who am I, and what do I stand for?” I bet it was rather a long time ago. The reason is like most people, you take yourself for granted. Hardly anyone thinks in sufficient depth about their beliefs, even though they are crucial to what makes a person an individual.

The question is what is a belief? Well a belief is a feeling of certainty about something particularly connected to yourself. Most beliefs are formed during childhood: the opinions of elder family members have a great influence on how a person turns out in life.

Beliefs can be separated into two straightforward categories – positive and negative. Having positive beliefs leads to a positive way of thinking and helps lead you towards your life goals. On the other hand negative beliefs produce negative behaviour. The main contributor to negative beliefs and thinking is the inner critic.

Do you know that little voice you hear in your head that tells you that you that you can’t do this, or you can’t do that? Well, that is what life coaches call the inner critic. The inner critic is great, and in fact essential, but only if it is kept under control. However, when the balance becomes upset, your inner critic can become a harmful energy in your life. An unchecked inner critic can wipe out your self-confidence in an instant.

The great news is though you also have the inner coach. This is the voice of self-belief, support and success. Your inner coach is the part of you that finds the solutions to problems, and gives you inspiration, and guides you towards your life goals.

Think which is the loudest in your head the inner critic, or the inner coach? Are you your own coach or your own worst enemy? If you think about it, it is a lot easier to criticise and be harsh on yourself than to go out there and do something constructive. The reason why most people don’t achieve what they want in life is because they listen to much to the inner critic. The People that do make something of themselves listen more to their inner coach.

The best thing then is to develop your inner coach. When you do this you will then be making your mind work for you and not against you. Just think for a moment about how amazing the human brain is. Even the most intelligent people only use about 10% to 12% of their brain power. The brain is more powerful than all the worlds computers put together. The brain has within it almost unlimited power. What a shame it is then not to use it for personal development. Everyone has the chance to be extraordinary, yet so many people just sit in the darkness all because they are unable to change their limiting beliefs about themselves.
