  • Understanding Mind Mapping and How You Can Effectively Use It

    Mind mapping is a great tool you can use to improve the flow of information in your life. It structures together information in a way that makes it easier for you to comprehend, analyze, and come up with new ideas as well. With mind mapping, concepts are graphically represented, allowing you to actually picture the ideas. It’s a very simple and effective method of organizing thoughts and ideas. What Is Mind Mapping? To illustrate mind mapping, let’s start with a typical handwritten list of goals. Now add action steps to this list and draw lines to show how one action relates to another. All of a sudden your list mushrooms into a map and you need more paper to write on! That’s a basic mind map. Mind maps work well with your brain because you’re using a structure that’s very close to the way your brain works. It includes artistic and analytical activity, getting your brain more involved in the information. You may even find mind mapping to be fun! By using a mind map, it’s easier to see how things on your list relate to each other and how to prioritize your projects. Benefits of Mind Mapping Mind maps jog your brain’s creativity and make information easier to learn, remember, and work with. Mind maps allow you to envision the big picture and how each part contributes to it. Mind maps help you focus on the important projects and tasks that are most beneficial for your business or career. Various Uses for Mind Mapping Mind maps are a new way of formulating a list of ideas into a visual plan. They’re excellent tools for brainstorming, whether it’s for personal, work, or educational purposes. Mind maps are great for taking notes as well, making notes much easier for students to visualize and remember. When it comes to memorizing and studying information, mind maps can make the job easier and less time-consuming. Mind maps also simplify problem-solving and planning. They work wonderfully for presenting information, from simple to complex. If you're trying to find a way to get that creativity flowing, a mind map may be the perfect solution. In addition, when you’re researching information from a variety of different sources, a mind map can help you consolidate it all. Mind maps come to life as you add in the details. They help you form action steps and timelines to reach your goals and bring you the success you desire. How to Make a Mind Map Making a mind map is easier than you may think. You'll need a large, blank piece of paper and something to write with. You'll want to start out in the middle of your paper so that there’s room to expand in any direction. Here are the steps to creating a great mind map: 1. Draw or write down a specific idea. 2. Around the main idea, illustrate or write out different subtopics or tasks that relate to it. 3. Draw lines to connect your subtopics to the main idea. 4. For each subtopic, you can go on to develop more details and ideas, drawing lines to them as well, until everything is connected together.

Once you start putting your ideas into a mind map, you’ll be able to see your projects with clarity and accomplish your goals with ease. How are sleep and dreams connected to all of this? Sleep and dreams are a gateway to other states of consciousness and wellness. In dreams, our soul calls us. If we choose to pay attention, this is where we can spark or elevate our spiritual awakening and overall health. We can connect to a greater place of knowledge than we do in waking life alone. The ego takes a back seat and our higher self speaks from a place of truth via symbols, whether you remember or not.

  • A Different Post on My Health and Projects

    A Personal Health Update This is a slightly different post sharing a bit of what’s been happening with my health and subsequently my projects. You probably know I live with a complex chronic illness but I don’t let that stop me from moving onward…normally. However, as of late 2019, I noticed I was gaining weight despite working out and eating well (adjusting for age and physical limitations, the pandemic), and my chronic pain was more severe. I developed significant symptoms including, but not limited to, serious anemia and fainting making it dangerous for me to go. Something was making my “regular” health challenges substantially worse. The good news is: 1. I discovered what this specific health issue is, 2. It’s treatable. I developed 10 (benign fibroids) tumors that are wreaking havoc in my body. I am scheduled to explore treatments and will hopefully be on the mend by year’s end. And, 3. The best news is I am still creating things to contribute to my fellow humans, animals and our precious planet as much as possible given the circumstances of being bedbound much of the time recently. This health hiccup has led to a slight delay in my projects and unexpected financial challenges But it is all very much still in process. A quick summary of my projects I am providing various at-your-own-pace courses that will be out soon. Topics include: · Finding Your Purpose, · Identifying and Healing Trauma, · Tell Your Story: Write a Book, · Pivotal Life Decisions, · The Miracle of Spiritual Awakening · Spiritual Tools for Protection and Shielding · You Can’t Skip the Dark (this is an extra special project) You can take a look at the first out available now at my CoursesnMore page on my site. I am still working extensively on dream and sleep work. I have created the accompanying journal to Your Sleep Sweet Spot, called My Sleep Sweet Spot, a sleep journal available in hardcover, PDF and paperback and the links are on my site. I know this is pretty ambitious and I don’t an assistant but your support can help make all this happen. Click, read, share and participate. Even with health and economic challenges, I move forward with heart and passion because I can’t help it. Come take a feel there is room for all of us to evolve.

  • How to Create a Spiritual Wake-Up Routine

    No matter when you wake up, morning, night or any where in between, creating a spiritual routine can gently and powerfully light your way. There are many different types of morning routines, from those that help you to be more productive, to ones that focus more on your physical health and wellbeing. A spiritual wake up routine is simply one that helps you feel more connected to your soul and spirit. Many of the activities are similar to what you would do during any wake up routine, with a few small changes to help you on your spiritual journey. Keep a Dream Journal Before you do anything else when you wake up, write in your dream journal. This is just a journal you use to record any details you remember about your dreams the night before. Details from your dreams will start fading within a few minutes after waking, so if you can, turn your light on and write in it as soon as you get up and out of bed. If you are someone who tends to wake multiple times during your sleep, with a different dream during each sleeping session, you might want to keep it at your bedside table with a little book light that can be turned on to write in the middle of the night when you wake up if you are day person. I created Your Sleep Sweet Spot Sleep Journal just for this purpose. Start Your Day With Meditation After you have written in your dream journal, consider doing a short meditation session. At this point, if your mind is still a little anxious from the dreams you had, it might be a good idea to grab another journal to do some brain dumping. This allows you to get all of those thoughts and feelings out so you can clear your mind better during meditation. Meditation upon waking up is ideal as you are in a more relaxed state, with less thoughts about what has gone on during the day. It can be a really illuminating time for you, plus it helps you to set intentions for your spiritual day. Choose Your Daily Mantras or Affirmations At this point, you can choose some affirmations or mantras for the day. This is another way to set positive intentions for your day. Think about what is on your mind in the morning, whether you have a big goal you need to complete that day or you are working on manifesting something. Choose some affirmations that align with those intentions and write them down. Keep them in mind and repeat them to yourself throughout the day when you remember. Gratitude and Wake-Up Pages Another style of journaling you can add to your spiritual wake up routine is with gratitude or wake up pages. Gratitude in the waking up is often different from going to bed. Waking up, it tends to be more about looking inside, being grateful for the start of a new day, for your positive energy, and focusing on your manifestations. Gratitude is also really powerful when it comes to your spiritual growth. Wake-Up Oracle or Tarot Spread If intuitive/oracle cards or tarot is part of your spiritual journey, this can be a great time for a quick wake up reading. Give yourself 10-15 minutes to do a fast 3-card spread in the morning. It can be about setting intentions, getting guidance, or just checking in with your current energies. I use various cards depending on my need on any given day. My favorite is The Shaman's Dream by Alberto Villoldo and Colette Baron-Reid. I personally resonate with the the cards and find them splendid. The best part is finding a deck that best resonates with you. A 1 to 3-card spread can be about your thoughts, feelings, and outlook in the morning, or do cards for your past, current, and future path. Simple Respiration: Breathing and Relaxing Breathing is the simplest and easiest way to find complete relaxation and stress reduction. The more deeply you breathe, the more serene you will become. These relaxation tips will help your body wind down and get ready for sleep. When you first get into bed: Lie down and breathe deeply through your nose. Imagine the air moving into your stomach. On your next inhale, breathe in for four counts. Exhale slowly through your pursed lips while counting to eight. You will feel the tension leave your body with every exhale. Repeat this technique six to ten times for immediate relaxation. Practice deep breathing daily to develop a healthy habit of regular relaxation. Calming your mind will help you fall asleep. Or try this one. Before going to bed, try this relaxation technique: Lie down with your back to the floor and your arms at your side, palms facing upward. Your feet should be comfortably apart. With your eyes closed, mentally concentrate on each part of your body, tensing then releasing each group of muscles. Starting at the top of your head, release tension as you move slowly down your body. Feel your forehead, eyes, and mouth. Work through your shoulders, neck, and back. Move down to your toes, then bask in the relaxed state you have achieved. Focus on your breathing, making sure breath is coming from your stomach. Breathe deeply and slowly, letting go of all your concerns and stress. When your body knows it’s okay to let go of your worries and stressors, you’ll be able to go to sleep naturally. There are many other techniques for breathing and relaxation. Through your experimentation and practice, you can find one that works well for you. How are sleep and dreams connected to all of this?
