Life is fueled with emotions that are incredibly difficult to process. Many struggle with anxiety, depression, and countless other mental issues which can leave us incapacitated to process through our daily routines. Those who deal with hardships find that they are left with barely enough energy to get out of bed, let alone practice things that can make them feel better, like yoga and meditation. Here, we’ll be exploring how clarity of your mind reflects upon your mental capacity. And how you can make changes to improve your mental clarity to reach your full capacity.
Mental Clarity versus Mental Fog
Mental clarity is a state of mind where your perception is clear. You are capable of sustaining focus while operating at the highest level. When you experience mental fog your perception becomes clouded. When you are dealing with mental fog, it can be hard to stay attentive or be present in the moment. Understanding these differences can help you learn how to process through your emotions, and understand your mental state. When you are able to break down your mental state, you can learn how to organize your thoughts, and sort through the issues.
Clarity Equals Capacity
Clarity allows for capacity. Read that sentence again. The more decluttered your life and mind are, the less space there is in your head to be filled with garbage that weighs us down. This allows for clarity within your mind. We allow so much to physically and mentally affect us in negative ways. We can’t properly function if we don’t feel good about ourselves or our mental state. This cycle will continue until you take matters into your own hands and end the cycle for good.
Unlocking a Better Version of Yourself
It is of the utmost importance to make note that it’s okay to rest when you need it. We lead such hectic lives that it’s okay to give yourself self-love and rest before returning to the madness. While yoga and meditation are awesome for recentering yourself and relaxing your body and mind, if you aren’t up for it yet, taking time for yourself in other ways is beyond okay. Go for a walk, read a book, or pick up a tarot deck and let the cards speak to you. These are all super low-key methods to reconnect with yourself.
Understanding Your Capacity
Your mental capacity allows you the ability to accomplish virtually anything you set your mind to. When you unlock greater clarity of your mind, your mental capacity will follow suit. Increased mental capacity allows you to be able to accomplish things with greater strength. For instance, if you practice witchcraft, you understand that spells work best when your mind is clear and your intent is set. This is something that, even if you don’t practice witchcraft, is invaluably important to keep in mind. When your mind is clear from the garbage of the outside world, it is more open to clarity which allows you the ability to unleash your inner power and make things work in your favor.
Processing and Healing
Take time to notice when you are most energized and go with it. If you have been down and out, but then one evening you find that little spark: run with it. That is the best opportunity to take advantage of that energy and do something positive with it.
There are a number of great tactics you may want to employ to help boost your energy. Below are a few that you may want to consider implementing into your life.
Try a candle spell for whatever it is that you are needing emotionally. Whether it is healing from trauma, protection against a negative entity or individual, or transforming negative energy that has bound you and turning it into something positive. Candle spells allow you to literally use every fiber of your being to find yourself again. They also help to provide you with an inner sense of clarity and stillness of mind.
Crystals for Healing
Working with crystals is also a wonderful way to regain your mental clarity as well. Crystals can be physically worn, meditated with, used in spell work, carried with you, or simply kept around areas where you work or reside. Here are some of the best crystals to consider working with:
Meditation is a great way to find inner healing and clarity of the mind. To meditate, find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and envision that you’re surrounded by white light. As thoughts begin to come don’t reflect upon them, let them pass. This can take a lot of practice. Don’t get discouraged, keep at it and you will breakthrough. This may take time. Keep your sessions short and increase durations at your own pace.
Breathe and Release
When you are met with daily challenges, the best thing you can do for yourself is to breathe. When you take a step back, breathe deeply, and reassess the situation before reacting. This allows you the ability to be able to process through the issue at hand and let it go. Letting go of difficult situations helps to prevent a mental build-up in your head. And the less you carry mentally, the greater capacity you are giving yourself.
Finding healing in nature is one of the best things you can do for yourself. It is also one of the easiest methods to find mental clarity. Nature is fueled with living energy. What is better than that when it comes to rejuvenating your own self? You can pack up a lunch, a good book, and head to your local park; or even grab a cup of coffee on your work break and bask in the sun. Anything that you can do to get outdoors is going to be super beneficial to your overall health. Check out this jogging meditation to combine outdoors with meditation.
Set Your Intention
Clarity and intention go hand in hand. When you set your intention for something, whether it is aiming for a promotion or casting a healing spell, you are going to need to have a clear frame of mind and focus only on your goal. And again, when your brain is fogged, you can not set a clear intention as you will be clouded over with a mess of other thoughts. This fogs your intention and it will not release into the universe as strongly as it can. The more you can focus on setting an intention with clarity, the stronger it will release, thus bringing your desires to you quicker and more accurately.
Live in the Moment
Living in the moment frees you both emotionally and mentally. The more you stress about things that are out of your control, the more you carry mentally, leading to more stress. Try and plan out your day the evening before. This saves you a ton of stress the next day and gives you a greater sense of freedom.
To Sum it Up: How to Unlock your Full Potential
Finding clarity and mental peace in order to clear space in your mind to obtain greater capacity is difficult. But with practice and patience, it can certainly be accomplished. You will find that once you unlock that higher sense of capacity, everything that requires a clear mental state will become more strengthened overall. You will truly be at your greatest, highest self, and your power will be unleashed for the greater good.
