How to Make Your Mind More Aware

Eleven powerful keys to shine up your mind so it serves you well−even in the most challenging of times.

Your mind is a wonderful tool if it is calm and aware. The term “mind” is used differently by various disciplines. I define “mind” as a bridge between your body—including your brain—and your soul/timeless essence. Your mind contains your unique attributes: your personality, likes and dislikes, memories and other characteristics.

Regarding when you die, you’ve likely heard the saying, “You can’t take it with you.” That’s true for material possessions and your body, but not for your mind. When you pass on, you do take your mind with you. That’s why some people experience life as heavenly or hellish, whether on Earth or in the hereafter. As such, wise people take time to fine-tune their minds so they always can enjoy a magnificent experience.

Here are 11 basic but powerful keys to shine up your mind so it serves you well—even in the most challenging of times.

1) Use a pro and con list whenever faced with difficult decisions. List the advantages and disadvantages of each decision and notice which list is longer. Prioritize the items and see which ones are most important to you. Viewing your options in black and white often clarifies decision-making.

2) Future tripping, a simple visualization technique, helps you through tough times. Imagine ahead 1, 5, 10, or more years and see yourself being successful and happy. Picture reaching your goals in spite of or even because of the difficulties you presently face. Remind yourself that most major stressors are time-limited, so enjoy your visions of a brighter tomorrow.
