April 22: Take A Mental Shower

Imagine you have been playing in the mud for hours.  Not just wet dirt, but that thick, juicy mud that really sticks to you and gets in your hair and you have to scrape it off.  Now what?  You have to wash it off, right?  Eventually you will want to go back into the house, wear clean clothes, and sleep in your bed.  You will want to get back to real life and stop playing around in the mud, right?

Time to shower.  Are you going to turn on a tiny, little trickle coming out of the shower head and take hours to wipe away the mud, or are you going to turn the water on full blast and wash it away as quickly as you can?  The choice is yours.  Either way you need to get clean so you can go on with your day.  How you do it is entirely up to you.

It is the same with our minds.  When we have thought a certain way and lived a certain way for years, our minds may have become a little muddy.  Most of us have been at a point in our lives where our minds have really been drug through the mud and we are down right dirty!  It is time for a mental shower.

Now, are you going to turn on that little trickle and maybe some day be clean again, or are you going to turn it on full blast and REALLY get clean?  I have found it is best to turn it on full blast to replace the dirty with the clean.  Sometimes, when it has taken years to become as dirty as we currently are, it is going to take time and effort to get clean again.

Reminder to self:  BOMBARD YOUR BRAIN!

Seek out inspirational, motivational things to read and watch.  Surround yourself with inspirational, motivational people.  Shower your mind with inspiration, goodness, kindness, love, patience, forgiveness, appreciation, healing, empathy, comfort, abundance, peace, and acceptance, and give your self the gift of a clean mind.  Change your mentality from muddy to pristine.  It will be easier to sleep and get back to real life and stop playing around.  When you do play around again it will be a totally different, higher quality and type of play.

Today’s challenge for myself:  Today I will take a mental shower.  At the end of the day I will ask myself:  “Did taking this mental shower today change me for the better in any way? How do I FEEL?  What if I took a mental shower daily, for the next year? “
