In the era of COVID-19, we are all facing mixed emotions. Some of us are stressed and anxious whilst others are helpless and have lost hope due to the situations around them. The pressing question is what can be done and how one can be trained to be better off in the long run. While we may believe that most of our thoughts are under our control and we know exactly what we are thinking at any point in time, it is also important to consider the power of the subconscious mind. During a stressful time like this, detoxifying the subconscious is the key to maintaining mental and emotional well-being.
It is clear that our subconscious is driven by the emotions we attach to every situation. In the story of the prisoner as narrated by neurologist Dr Viktor Frankl, we see how a man passed away exactly at the date the inner voice in his dream had chosen for him to ‘escape’ the harsh conditions of the prison. Here, the man attached the idea of ‘escaping’ with a date and when he did not see any positive way out of captivity, the negative energy flowing within him brought him to his death bed.
This tells us that even in the most difficult situations, we are always driving what happens in our lives and have the power to take our destiny in our hands based on how we think. An optimistic approach towards the current situation and being able to filter out fact from emotion in the hope of a strong comeback in the future is the ideal way of detoxifying our subconscious. While it is important to be aware of statistics and transmission rates around us, one must not be glued to social media and news channels that constantly pumps out negative dimensions. It is in our hands to control what we see, think and hear. A cautionary and careful approach will automatically contribute towards the perfect detox for our subconscious!
