A Cluttered Mind Makes Us Sick

I’ve been studying the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, I highly recommend it! I came across the part where Henry Ford, while on trial, got weary of ridiculous questions meant to make him look stupid. He was called an ignorant pacifist by those who believe education is found in our modern school systems. He finally got ired of the nonsense and asked why he should clutter his mind with general knowledge for the purpose of answering questions? If he needs information, he knows where to get it. He had a team of Master Minds that could supply him with all the knowledge he may need when he needs it. Henry Ford had no “education” as some call it and still outsmarted the ones who thought they did. This is a very intelligent question…why should we clutter our minds with general knowledge when specialized knowledge is what brings success? It’s not healthy and it’s very exhausting, even makes us sick. It’s one of the reasons I go through my natural detoxes. It makes modern school a waste of time.

The natural detoxes…they happen when and how long the body and soul decide. I’ll spare the gross details. I do not take any medicine for the symptoms or try to stop or control the symptoms in any way; to do so would turn off the immune system. Detox means to remove the toxins, I don’t want to stop my body from doing that. Most of the time it lasts a day, the longest it has lasted was 3 weeks. I always fees cleansed and calm afterwards. Keeping myself there is a challenge. I had 2 detoxes this week which is unheard of. Their far and few between normally. My thought is my mind was so cluttered with nonsense it took 2 days to clear it up.

I felt my cluttered mind leading up to a detox, its in my physical and energetic bodies. My muscles begin to feel tense and tight, I lose flexibility. I start getting little aches, small enough to ignore although they are giving me a big message. My mind starts racing, my thoughts go everywhere, it’s hard to focus. I get brain fog. If we can’t focus, we can’t manifest and connect. My energy feels chaotic and messy. I get more and more agitated and overwhelmed. I start to get negative thoughts and focus on the wrong things. My heart starts pounding and, although it’s been a while now, an anxiety attack is always possible. It’s like trash is all over the yard looking ugly and hurting the wildlife. When I pick up the trash, I and my surroundings feels better. If I don’t pick it up, my body will take over and pick it up for me through a detox.

I see this as protection, it keeps me from getting too cluttered for too long. My body will shut me down, detox and heal. It isn’t pleasant, anyway our bodies eliminate waste is utilized. The hubs knows what this is and doesn’t freak out or try to stop it or get me to go to the hospital. He does all he really can…makes sure I’m as comfortable as possible and does his own thing while it passes. My son stayed with us for little while and got to witness a detox. He was freaked out and tried to get me to go to the hospital. LOL! I love him and appreciate his concern. The next day I was up and running around like nothing happen the day before. I tried to explain to him what it was and why I don’t stop it. I’m not sure he understood it. That’s OK, he’s not the only one.

It’s pretty easy to clutter our minds, our society is set up for just that. A busy mind is a distracted mind unable to focus. It’s the reason for so much anxiety amongst us humans. It’s the reason so many of us have a hard time meditating, manifesting and connecting. It keeps us in the 3D and away from awakening. Clutter is not good for anyone and we’re not meant to live with it. Our ancestors were not exposed to so much clutter…they weren’t staring at screens, watching propaganda on the main stream news or seeing billboards and signs everywhere they went. They did not have the big levels of stress like our modern matrix provides…children, marriage, finances, school, scamdemics, career, government scare tactics, etc. Their bodies did not experience the abuses of processed foods, pharma drugs and environmental pollution. They were more connected to Source and each other. They were more independent and lived off the land, they had skills and understood and respected what fed, clothed and kept them warm. Contrary to what is taught in our school systems, they live longer, healthier, happier, more fulfilling lives. They were much more advanced than we are today. They knew how to use their minds. They never saw their bodies as “machines”. Humans are not machines, their spiritual beings.

After the detox is over, my mind is calm, anxiety gone and I’m able to think clearly. Answers to what was stressing me out just come to me. I feel and look better, cleaner, healthier. I’m able to meditate, relax into zen and connect. I’m able to stretch and get my flexibility restored. Flexibility is big for me, especially in my neck and spine. I can’t function without it! It’s important to my spiritual growth and connection. It’s greatly needed for manifestation. If there was mucus and inflammation in my body, a detox remedies it.

The mind, body and soul are connected, they all need to be healthy and in balance for wholeness and wellness. They feed off one another and need to be tended to on a regular basis. They are intelligent. I trust my body’s intelligence when I’m detoxing. I tell it to do what it needs to do and let it all happen. I sleep in between bouts of bathroom time and just let it pass.

Clutter effects us in many ways, our mood, accomplishments, focus, energy, connection, manifestation. It’s not healthy to have a constantly occupied mind. Cleaning up the clutter makes room for what matters. There are lifestyle choices I’ve made through the years to help me avoid a cluttered mind. I eat a diet that is 80% clean, the other 20% isn’t total junk, most of it ;). I don’t eat anything out of a microwave. I stopped watching TV years ago which serves me well still today. I deleted my Facebook and don’t use social media a lot. I very seldom scroll and I don’t waste my time with online arguments. There’s nothing there to serve me. I removed toxic people from my life and I’m very picky about who I allow close to me. I have trained my mind (this one took quiet a while for me!) to not care what others think and listen to my Intuition instead. The thoughts of others are not my business and it doesn’t serve me to worry about them. I stopped using the medical system and their drugs. I make most of my makeup, cleaning and hygiene products. I ignore main stream media like the plaque, I really don’t like to be lied to. I stopped externalizing my power to politics, they know who will allow them to rule and who won’t. I have no ruler. I watch what I consume with my senses, what I put in is as important as what I remove.

Clutter is a personal responsibility. No one can clean up our mess, it’s ours to clean up. It doesn’t matter how our minds get cluttered or if we even realize it’s happening or not. Clutter is like dirt on the floor. We sweep it up on a regular basis because it gets dirty on a regular basis. Our minds are the same way, regular cleaning is required

How do you handle clutter? Do you feel the effects of it right away or does it take a while? What do you do to monitor what you’re consuming? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Merry Meet! I'm a Herbalist, Farmer and Nature Witch in beautiful East Tennessee. I live in the woods with my husband and 2 dogs where we are growing our off grid homestead and herb farm. I love wild harvesting medicine and food as well as making traditional foods and medicines. Being off grid, I'm mindful of the energy we use and what we are doing to the land we all depend on. I do my best to be as sustainable as possible. We're not perfect however, we're always improving! I value my fellow humans, my local, national and worldly communities. There's nothing better than seeing someone get healthier, happier and more empowered to help themselves. Healing isn't just ingesting a concoction or rubbing cream on the skin, it's so much more than that. As a healer, I can't deny that education is part of the healing. I'm of the belief that man made chemicals are responsible for the rise in dis ease. I've seen amazing changes in my health myself after eating mostly organic and Non-GMO. Due to my research and personal experience, I do not allow any chemicals or GMO ingredients in Love of Lotus Apothecary and Farm products. It makes no sense to me to put man made poison or franken plants in Mother Gaia's medicines. When I'm not being a foraging herbalist, I love hiking, swimming in nature spaces, spending time with loved ones, cooking, growing plants and meditating. I love rocking out behind my sexy ass drum kit and spending time with loved ones. Your time is greatly appreciated. Merry Part, Rainie Dae

Let's all share what we know, research what we hear and treat each other with love and respect.
