Alison arrived home safe and sound on Sunday night, and will fill you all in on her adventures next week. But for now, we have some interesting information on detoxing the mind from Maria Ganis, our health and wellness coach, as well spiritual detoxing from Sheryn Gung, Intuitive Counsellor and Shiatsu Practitioner.
Mindfulness – Great De-tox for the mind
We have all heard about the 3 D’s for De-tox: Delete, Dump and Do
Often what we fail to recognize, is how important it is, to apply this rule to the Mind. The most powerful tool we have at our disposable, if it is used right. Being mindful of your mindset is the first step to De-toxing the mind. Mindsets can guide the whole interpretation process of events. For instance a fixed mindset creates an internal monologue that is focused on judging; “This means I’m a loser.” “This means I’m a better person than they are.” “This means I’m a bad husband.” “This means my partner is selfish.” People who maintain a growth mindset do not have an internal monologue that is fixated on judging themselves and others in this way. Instead, their internal monologue is attuned to its implications for learning and constructive action; “What can I learn from this?”, “How can I improve?”, “How can I help my partner do this better?”
Being mindful allows you to de-tox from the idyll mind chatter that is Fear based- the Fixed mindset, and help you move towards a mind free of judgment and constraints- the Growth mindset. Brain circuits take engrams (which are essentially “memory traces”) and produce neuroconnections and neuropathways only if they are bombarded for 21 days in a row. This means that our brain does not accept new data or information for a change of habit unless it is repeated each day (without fail) for at least 21 days.
As a coach I can help you make a plan on paper – specific decisions and actions that you can apply, to assist you to move forward with clarity and confidence every single day for the next month.
Go forward boldly and create extraordinary lives!

Spring is often the season for a physical detox; likewise, Autumn may be seen as a time for spiritual cleansing. Around us, deciduous trees are stripped of gold and crimson gowns. If we take Mother Nature’s lead, we may engage in introspection and self-reflection.
We’re already in April and 2013 – the first year of the New Era – has already been challenging year for many conscious people. In the old age, we may have been able to hide areas that don’t sit right with us, with a band-aid solution: “Oh, it’s not that bad”. Now with veils gradually lifting, we can no longer deceive ourselves. Anything that jars with our Higher Selves will ultimately be brought to surface – and this can be abrupt.
If you’re not already in a spiritual detox, I would encourage you this week to take an honest review of the different areas of your life and identify areas of friction. A close inspection will probably highlight underlying outdated belief systems. The challenge then is to release them… as easily as trees shed their leaves.
Sheryn Gung is the author of “The Autumn Year” and practices intuitive counselling and shiatsu. Intuitive counselling is perfect to assist your spiritual detox.
Again with the help of our lovely practitioners.
