Can you hear the rustling leaves?, it's like their dancing back and forth celebrating life and freedom. Can you feel the rumbling of the crashing waves against the shore?? Can you smell the aroma of fires burning, the illuminating flames reaching for the midnight sky.... if you are oh so quiet you can hear the pounding of drums and voices chanting....
Welcome to the African Experience!!!! I will be taking you on a journey of the health trinity: Mind, Body and Spirit the African way...
My practices and beliefs in holistic health are defiantly inspired by my beloved African predecessors. So in honor of them I will be sharing the health trinity(mind, body and spirit) from their prospective in the series the Health Trinity: Mind, Body and Spirit the African way.
My LCP family what is good? We have made it to the end of the week and this is a great month indeed! We are in the month that celebrates and educates the masses in why we the brown, black and even purple people are so freaking awesome!!! Yes African Heritage and Black History can just be confined to one month it is a lifestyle and for some uplifted and celebrated all year!! I'm so excited! I can hardly contain myself...can you?!!!
Are you ready?? Let's dive in!!!....
“We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind." - Marcus Garvey
Upon my research and reflecting I was led to share these 3 tips of mental strength
Carry these in your consciousness....
1. Mental resilience-
You must be able to bounce back...you will be able to do this by remembering
the power you possess within. Clarity is key! It is okay to listen to your feelings but the
resilience becomes stronger with every adversity. How you respond and the energy
you expel to move forward is what counts!!
2. Collective education-
Knowledge is key in strengthening the mind.
Surrounding yourself with other individuals
who are actively seeking true knowledge will help
and inspire you to do the same. Sharing and
absorbing positive information increases your
mental library and mental armor! This leads me
Into the 3rd but just as important tip...
3. Mental Confidence-
When a person can control his/her thoughts
He has control over his/her manifestations in life.
This is true confidence! Each individual who
productively goes forward utilizing tips 1 and 2
will easily be empowered with mental confidence.
I truly believe my predecessors utilized tips
such as these to empower themselves and their families
What are your thoughts on the mind? Do you think these tips will help you go forward and empower
your lives?? Like, share and comment! Thank you
