Unbreakable Secret

Oh how the unbreakable walls remained, damaged by graffiti & weather. Despite it all, they continue to hold Greeneville’s darkest secrets.

One year, on Halloween night, Kipper and his friends thought it’d be hilarious to play a practical joke on a family. Innocently, it was usually toilet paper in someone’s tree or some other typical juvenile prank. On the night marking the 6th year, the High School Seniors planned something extra cruel. Supposedly, there was a family of midgets that lived in town. Their last name was Romannburgh. Rumor has it, the boys kidnapped the father and twin boys of the family five. Next, they were supposedly pushed down Chestnut Hill towards River Ridge. Then, they were to have pulled them inside Coal Mine Cove and forced them to stand in buckets of raw eggs.

That was the last anyone had heard or seen Kip and his crew. Mr Rommannburgh, Joey, and Joel were interviewed but the case went cold. Many presumed they were eaten by Bigfoot; while others swear they hear men muttering by the old Coal Mine Cove.

Rewiring Your Brain

Good Morning 🙂

I hope you’ve taken time to create a self care routine this week. It’s one of many practices that will help you better balance your mental health. Here’s where I provide all kinds of suggestions; surely some are suitable for your lifestyle.

In addition, I hope you watched Dr Wayne Dyer’s insightful video about your subconscious and the last 5 minutes you’re awake. It’s incredible what we can actually achieve within ourselves once we’ve become mindful of it.

Again, here’s the meditation Dr Dyer read in the video. Repetition helps us build skills, remember details, and teaches us new things. For these reasons, I’ll continue to repost this meditation.

“I know that I am pure spirit, that I always have been,

and that I always will be.  There is inside me a place of

confidence and quietness and security where all things

are known and understood.  This is the Universal Mind,

God, of which I am a part and which responds to me as I

ask of it.  This universal mind knows the answer to all of

my problems, and even now the answers are speeding

their way to me.  I needn’t struggle for them; I needn’t

worry or strive for them.  When the time comes, the

answers will be there.  I give my problems to the great mind

Of God; I let go of them, confident that the correct answers

will return to me when they are needed.  Through the

great law of attraction, everything in life that I need

for my work and fulfillment will come to me.  It is not

necessary that I strain about this, only believe.  For in

the strength of my belief, my faith will make it so.  I

see the hand of divine intelligence all about me, in

the flower, the tree, the brook, the meadow.  I know that

the intelligence that created all these things is in me and

around me and that I can call upon it for my slightest

need.  I know that my body is a manifestation of pure

spirit and that spirit is perfect; therefore my body is

perfect also.  I enjoy life, for each day brings a constant

demonstration of the power and wonder of the universe and

myself.  I am confident.  I am serene.  I am sure.  No matter

what obstacle or undesirable circumstance crosses my

path, I refuse to accept it, for it is nothing but illusion.

There can be no obstacle or undesirable circumstance to

the mind of God, which is in me, and around me, and

serves me now.”

The Three Words

Finally, for today, Thursday, I’ve found an incredible video that educates us about our brain and the purpose of anxiety. I was shocked how much power is in this 15 minutes clip. Emma McAdam talks about Neuroplasticity , explains 3 principles of Anxiety, and ways to overcome the fear associated with it.

I hope this helps; and, you enjoy your Thursday!

Your Last 5 Minutes

While searching for an inspirational Youtube video, I believe God lead me to this specific one. Dr Wayne Dyer draws our attention to the significance of our last 5 minutes awake. He speaks of our subconscious; and, the programming responsibility we carry.

Towards the end, he provides a posive affirmative suggestion, quoting from the book ” Three Magic Words.” {audio version, kindle version}.

He encourages us to speak it into ourselves. Through these words, we’re inviting a powerful yet fruitful renewal to our bodies, spirits, and minds.

Here’s the video:

For the visually impaired, The Three Words message is as follows,

“I know that I am pure spirit, that I always have been,
and that I always will be.  There is inside me a place of
confidence and quietness and security where all things
are known and understood.  This is the Universal Mind,
God, of which I am a part and which responds to me as I
ask of it.  This universal mind knows the answer to all of
my problems, and even now the answers are speeding
their way to me.  I needn’t struggle for them; I needn’t
worry or strive for them.  When the time comes, the
answers will be there.  I give my problems to the great mind
of God; I let go of them, confident that the correct answers
will return to me when they are needed.  Through the
great law of attraction, everything in life that I need
for my work and fulfillment will come to me.  It is not
necessary that I strain about this, only believe.  For in
the strength of my belief, my faith will make it so.  I
see the hand of divine intelligence all about me, in
the flower, the tree, the brook, the meadow.  I know that
the intelligence that created all these things is in me and
around me and that I can call upon it for my slightest
need.  I know that my body is a manifestation of pure
spirit and that spirit is perfect; therefore my body is

Improving Your Mental Health

Chances are, you’re struggling or have, recently, struggled with intrusive thoughts. It’s all too common these days. Rather than allowing your mind to continue, here’s a few suggestions to try.

Furthermore, removing negative thoughts will leave space for you to improve your mental balance. It’ll allow you to fill your mind, body, spirit, and soul with a healthy dose of good.

From 99 Ways To Improve Your Mental Balance, here’s a short list of my favorite ideas.

  1. Spend more time in nature, and other spiritual places.
  2. Create a tranquil spot for mental health care in your home.
  3. Write often, whether it a gratitude list or detailed description of an experience to help identify triggers.
  4. Rather than worrying about your problem, try to find a solution.
  5. Stop expecting people to behave the way you want them too.
  6. Create a positive attitude playlist or list of podcasts.
  7. Write/Print & hang affirmations in your frequently visited spaces.
  8. Actually talk about your thoughts with someone you trust.
  9. Acknowledge and celebrate every achievement ( no matter how small! Such as treating yourself to some dark chocolate, which helps mental health issues!)
  10. Find a relaxing hobby to engage in, to replace idleness and worry. This works great with music/podcasts.

There are many more excellent ideas available on the original website. You can find that in the hyperlink above. I hope you find yourself a bit more relaxed now, and if not, you allow yourself time to do so. You deserve the best life, and the opportunities to be the best you.
