How to declutter your mind and find your inner voice!
The beginning of your journey to discover your inner voice is learning how to listen for that strange feeling that helps you respond with a clarity you never had before.
Once you find your inner voice it will have a strong influence on guiding you towards your life’s purpose.
Obstacles and resistance along the way.
To embark on this journey it is important to prepare properly so you arrive at your destination safely.
When you are on this journey you need to clear out some of the baggage collected over the years. This is necessary to reduce the obstacles and resistance you will face. Making changes to years of experiences and constant programming often negative will be faced with resistance.
This comes from your subconscious mind as it begins to deal with the changes you need to make. The subconscious mind is a creature of habit and it resists change.
My personal battle with my subconscious mind
It reminds me of my struggle as I work very hard to slow down the chatter in my mind through positive self talk. It feels like there is a war raging on in my head. At times I will be energised and moving full throttle ahead towards feeling good about myself and fulfilling my goals. Suddenly a bolt of lightening will pierce through the clarity of my thoughts I will start to second guess and have self doubts. This will lead to self sabotage. When I am gripped by these uncertainities nothing seems to work quite the way I want it to.
So I had to find a process to learn how to declutter my mind to clean out the old and bring in the new.
“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes”.
Ghandi’s quote is inspirational because from what he says, it’s all about what we think, this defines who we are. If we have the power to shape our thoughts then we can do and become whatever we decide to think about. The amazing part is that we do have this incredible ability to make choices. Deciding to choose who we are is exciting. Once we can do this we are able to break through the clutter.
We become the programmers.
To be in a position to create a brand new program we have to change the programming of the past. Clear the slate if you like.So lets get into how we can declutter our minds. It takes work , sacrifice and persistence, If this scares you then just accept the old programming. It might be the program that serves you best of all.
A thirty day mental cleanse is required to reprogram your mind. This thirty day mental cleanse will pave the way for a new fertile garden of thoughts to emerge. It is like a garden because you will be removing the weeds of negativity that were strangling it and prepare your mind for new thoughts to flourish in it. It’s like awakening boldly from a deep sleep similar to a coma. All of a sudden there is a freshness to everything that you say and do.
How to declutter your mind through a mental cleanse
To declutter your mind you have to remove the weeds of negativity.
Our whole world and surroundings are full of negativity and fear, this influences our thinking. If we just go along with this we draw in negativity. This causes stress, anxiety and clutter.
The only way to fight it is to make a conscious decision to block it out. To block it out you need to spend thirty days away from
All negative influences need to be removed. When you block out negativity you are able to tune into the positive channel. This will allow you to attract positive thoughts towards you. Life is a whole lot better when you are surrounded by positive people all buzzing to achieve their life’s dreams and aspirations.
Why do we need to spend thirty days away from negativity?
It takes 21 days to make any thing that you do over and over again a habit. The extra nine days are for insurance purposes. To some of you this may seem like a difficult thing to achieve.
However this is the price you must pay to prepare the fertile garden in your mind. There is no such thing as something for nothing. The universe will only align with you when you are prepared to pay a price for what you will receive. I hope you can commit to the price being asked here. The rewards will far outweigh the asking price.
The process is working when you begin to feel a difference in your energy level. Soon after that you will begin to be aware of the thoughts buzzing around in your head.
If you can do this then you are beginning to declutter your mind.
In my next post on the science and power of self talk, we will explore how positive self talk can become a shield against negativity.

Great info Loddy! It’s nice to know if I only play on my PS3 for 20 days and then give it a rest I wont become addicted to it :-). Too late for the laptop though lol! Glad to have you on board and look forward to some more inspiration from ‘another point of view’, not that there is anything wrong with Larry’s point of view of course…
There is hope for you yet Neil at least you will only be addicted to the laptop. The knowledge of how to make things a habit or stop things from becoming a habit can change our lives. When we use the slight edge philosophy of continually working towards our goals we build up a routine to help us achieve success. Positive habits can empower our lives and make all the difference towards achieving our dreams.
Loddy it’s exciting times here at Healthy Lifestyles Living, and having your contribution is going to be totally amazing. The synergy that exists between the two of us already will empower everything that we are doing, and your knowledge and passion will make a difference
Thanks Larry it is truly inspirational to be working with a purpose and a view to making a difference in my life and hopefully the lives of many others. I can see us providing real life changing information for anybody working towards improving their lives. I really appreciate the opportunity.
I love this article and as a specialist in stress management, I am particularly sensitive to your wonderful concepts (especially on negativity!) and fully endorse everything you’ve shared! You hit it on the button, well done!
Thank you Kim for your positive comment. Negativity can block our pursuit of happiness and make life very difficult. However we don’t have to subscribe to it. We can extinguish from our minds by thinking good positive thoughts.
Great info, to bad we couldn’t be born with a positive gene, working all the time, what a wonderful world. Can you just imagine our lives? Good Read!
It is possible to develop your mind to a level where you can shut out all negativity and live in the now. A very good friend of my can do it. He virtually developed the positive gene for himself. Amazingly enough he came from an incredible harsh and tragic childhood. So weird as it sounds Judy no matter what the circumstances our mindset can be controlled by what we think about. We have the choice to tune into the positive or negative channel. The choice is ours to make.
Discovering our inner voice is really a great way to manage stress. We should tap our inner self because if we practice that, we can never go wrong and would certainly have a stress-free life.
Hello Kim and thank you for your insights. Not only will discovering our inner self lead to a stress-free life it will also allow you to tap into your passions and live life on your terms. To be the person you were meant to be and not a replica of who everybody else thinks you are. I hope you check out our Power Of passion course coming soon Kim.
