If you want to design your future from your most effective mindset, and in integrity with your intuition, you need to cultivate a crystal clear state of mind.
Below you’ll learn how to assess whether you are in a clear state of mind, so you know when you’re in flow and integrity with your intuition. You’ll know when you need to take a break to reaccess, and how to rebound into that clear mindset quickly, which is so important for high-level leadership and executive presence.
Imagine that your state of mind is like a clear glass of water. When it’s clear, you are expansive. Abundant. Calm. You’re led by intention, your purpose, and your goals. You are nimble and connected to your intuition.
What happens to your clear water when you start to feel anxious or stressed? Maybe you spent a little bit too much time on social media or watching the news…Your glass of water begins to get cloudy. It starts to turn a different color. Imagine what that color looks like. Is it dark? Opaque? Do you see a whirlpool that starts to drain the water, decreasing your energy and abundance in a downward spiral?
When I start to watch the news for too long, my water, my clear water, starts to get murky and actually changes to a deep red. When I start to feel sad and can’t seem to get through it, my water changes to a heavy blue. Our water changes as our thoughts do, turning different hues as we experience an influx of unexpected or unwanted emotions.
So, how can you get back to that clear state of mind?
When you’re feeling that murky, dense energy, you can get back into integrity and return to your clear state of mind with simple mindfulness techniques that reel you back into the present.
Connect to Your Surroundings to Return to Clarity Quickly Using Your 5 Senses
- Sight – Describe 5 blue items you see, or a color of your choice
- Sound – Describe 4 sounds you hear
- Taste – Chew a stick of peppermint gum
- Smell – Smell something that makes you happy, like a candle or fruit
- Touch – Hug a loved one or do some jumping jacks
Using your five senses allows you to become fully immersed in the present moment. It clears your mind of all other troubles or anxious thoughts, allowing you to regain your intuition and insight. Next time you feel overwhelmed, as if the whole world is slowly closing in, try this method and see how quickly you are able to ground yourself back into reality.
Why is a Clear Frame of Mind Important?
A clear frame of mind is key to confidently creating those daily changes for your future self that are in alignment with your personal essence. It may not be easy to stay in that headspace during these times, but with awareness and mindfulness, you can return and build your desired future one intentional day at a time.
Despite how things might feel right now, stuck at home with EVERYONE who needs you, this is actually the perfect time to start planning a new direction and find a pathway for what you REALLY want to do with your one brilliant life. During this time, you can cultivate these ideas while nurturing a clear growth mindset that will propel you forward. We will eventually return to a new normal, and you will have the opportunity to create something you have always dreamed of. So look internally and ask yourself, what is it that I want to do with this one incredible life?
