As Mahatma Gandhi said, “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”

Who do you let into your consciousness? Your mind is the home to your thought-life. To stay focused and accomplish anything of significance you need clarity. It’s hard enough to keep your mind-space clutter-free with your own flow of thoughts. When you add outside visitors – comments from others – it can get messy. Shut out toxic people. I doubt you would appreciate someone visiting your house and trashing your living room. Negativity is like mud. It leaves smears all over your vision and makes your dreams hard to see. Lay out a welcome mat for new ideas while setting ground rules for entry. Be a witness to your thoughts and the language of others. Only let in messages that will serve and support you. Allow everything else to float on by. Make your mind your sanctuary through practices like meditation and you will create a clean slate for creativity, innovation and peace.

Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,
