Mind, Body, Spirit, and Emotions As One

Participating in a course “Inspirational Leaders” our assignments including reading and selecting a word-a-day from Spirit at Work Cards: Bringing Spirit and Values to Work by Lance H.K. Secretan. It is interesting how this book and the vocabulary concepts presented within fit right into my 365 Words for 2015 project. While some mornings I hit the floor running with enormous ideas for writing and the letters just spill across the page, on other mornings I seek inspiration. Today that arrived bound in the word congruency.

A congruent character places trust and honesty at the forefront of every situation. The mind is aligned not only with the tasks at hand – work, family, friendship, product development – but with the advantages and disadvantages that the task holds for each stakeholder. I may declare a vacation in Hawaii is the best chance for family reunification but without planning and interactive discussion I may discover twenty people jammed into sardine-sized rooms while rain pours, liquor decants, and arguments discharge. Such drizzle on paradise is not beneficial to anyone. My mind created a terrific scenario but my spirit failed to touch and tap into the lives and feelings of others.

Body entails seizing all that is within and putting it forward. My mind designed a vision of perfection, my body and internal tickings must combine to carry it out. We have decided to remodel a house for out neighbors. She just returned from knee surgery so the steps are a disaster; he suffers dementia and the twists, turns, and torn carpet jumble his steps and his thinking. I must possess a roadmap for our work, plus it is essential to include everyone in the blueprint to achieve success. Our minds combine as our bodies unite to produce. Organization reigns and dedication sees the job from start to finish. Mind and body are congruent in goals and aspirations. We are reaching out to help others, while making certain that ours is the desired help needed.

Along with mind and body is the essence of spirit. Our spirits drive us with determination to help others with little attention to personal gain. I say little attention because when we work for the common good, there is definitely much that the soul earns. The rewards are not monetary, although money can be accepted as it can then be transferred into a new project. As far as personal richness, that blossoms in the depths of the heart, the core of the individual. The spirit when given in totality seems to regenerate energy with each movement and step. The mind may tire, the body grow weary, but the spirit powers on. It is important to examine feelings of exasperation and frustration to determine their root. Often it is not that the product or project is not good or that the mind and the body were misaligned but that the spirit lacked the fortitude to accomplish the greatest ends.

Finally, into the mind/body/spirit mix come emotions. I view emotions as those thoughts and feelings that escape, whether through a slow simmer or busting burst to energize or deflate. Emotions intertwine our passions and reactions, our sentiments and sense of excitement. They are contagious; extremely so. When you laugh, most often others laugh too. When you giggle, they will giggle along with you. When you scream with passionate joy, the resonance fills the air and the spirits of those with whom you work resonate. The same is true when your emotions are a drag. Your anger bites; your fury hurls ferocity into the faces of others. Wrath and vehemence destroy the best of intentions and ruin the congruency of individuals and teams, bodies and souls.

The Mind Body Spirit Business and Life: 6 Key Questions Answered

Finding happiness in life isn’t easy. Most people will never find happiness in life because they don’t know what they want, and even if they do, they’re not sure what to do to achieve it, or they don’t believe it is possible.

There are a lot of simple things you can do to change your life. It takes patience and time. Since 90 percent of our lives is habit, then the key is to focus on your habits and begin to change those habits one at a time. If you have residual baggage from your past, systems like the Healing Codes or the “How Your Mind Can Keep You Well” meditation will help you remove those blocks to achievement and allow you to heal.

Understanding how this simple system works is crucial to getting the most out of it. Like anything else, what you put into it determines what you get out of it. If you feed your body junk food, fill your mind full of negativity and neglect your spiritual life, don’t expect to reap the benefits of a happy, joyful and abundant life.

1. What Is The Mind Body Spirit Business And Life?

It is taking a total body approach to your business and life. When you develop a strategy to change your life in one of the three main areas: health, wealth or relationships, you take a mind, body and spirit approach. You approach each problem from three different directions and then have the mind, body and spirit working together, in tangent, to solve the problem.

To successfully change, your body must take the right action. Your mind must believe the right things and your heart, part of your spirit, must agree with your mind.

2. What Are The Three Key Areas Of Concentration?

The three keys to the system are the mind, body and spirit. You must have a healthy mind, body and spirit in order to operate at 100 percent capacity in your life. If you have baggage or issues, these things put a drain on both your resources, energy and your body. Get rid of the baggage and take effective action to deal with your issues, and you restore you energy levels and benefit your health. Also, it is much more effortless to try and attain your goals when you have peace, joy, love and focus in your life.

3. What Are The Three Key Areas Of Goal Setting?

The three key areas of goal setting are health, wealth and relationships. Without good health, you don’t have the energy you need to accomplish your goals. Without true wealth, you don’t have the resources you need to to make the change necessary and finance your dreams. Resources can be anything from an education to financial resources and also the people in your life. Your success, as well as achieving your goals, is not dependent on having money. It is dependent on finding effective solutions to your problems and releasing your baggage and then taking action.

Relationships are icing on the cake. What is the point of becoming successful if you don’t have someone to share it with? None of us operate in a vacuum, and if you want to be truly happy, the most important way is to have good relationships. We were born to love and be loved.

4. What Is The Basis Of The Concept?

The Mind Body Spirit Business and Life concept is simple: every strategy you devise to change your life focuses on all three keys so you develop a strategy that is effective in helping you accomplish your goals. Since the mind, body and spirit work together, every change you make must include these three things. It is based on a concept I developed after reading “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace Wattles.

Implementation of this three step system is based on what I learned from reading Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles.” He mentions a suggested morning routine that includes 20 minutes of exercise, 20 minutes of meditation and 20 minutes of reading inspirational material.

Although it is influenced by my study of Jesus’ teaching, Zen and Quantum Physics, as well as my time serving in the United States Army, it is belief system independent. It operates on the laws of universal human truth and the laws of the universe. Because of it, this system works for anyone regardless of belief system. It is about bringing your beliefs in line with the universe and how it works.

5. How Do I Implement This Strategy In My Life?

The system is really simple. You spend 20 minutes a day on each focus: mind, body and spirit. That means 20 minutes of exercise, 20 minutes of meditation and 20 minutes of reading something inspirational to feed your mind and help you change what you believe. You choose what type of exercise you do, what you read and what meditation you use, so this is a custom program.
