There are times we all have to face when we’re called to make important life changing decisions or to clearly think things through. To not rationalize in this day and age, when you can google every possible outcome and avoid a catastrophe is thought of as a lack of ability to use your brain (How much brain does it actually take to Google something in the first place?).
However, sometimes what we need is not more time in the hamster wheel of our head, of endless pros and cons lists, of yet another article you found on google confirming to you what you’re already convinced of, or convincing you of what you “should” be convinced of. Sometimes what we need is to take the little guy off the wheel and place him in a corner, tuck him under a warm fluffy blanket, give him his little hamster bottle to feed on, and allow him to take a nap.
A brain nap, is what your little hamster needs, because yes, little hamsters need little hamster naps too.
TAME THE BEAST
But seriously, do you ever find the harder you push in attempt to seek the answers that will resolve the problems of your life, the more you end up going around in circles?
You eat quinoa and yogurt 5 times a day, you practice underwater crossfit at 3 am, you drink sacred peruvian matcha coffee, you do all the things that these damn blog articles are telling you to do, and that are supposed to give you more energy, yet when it comes to this particular issue that NEEDS to be resolved you still don’t have any damn energy.
We literally have all the answers at the palms of our hands, and we can solve all of life’s problems while taking a dump in the morning (if your reading this from your phone while taking a dump in the morning, then HAH I was right!) , so why do we feel blocked? Life itself is not as literal as we’d like to believe, and the denial of ambiguity, of admitting “I don’t know” seems petrifying to many, because we need to know, we must know,
OH GOD I NEED TO KNOW, PLEASE JUST GIVE ME THE ANSWERS I NEED TO KNOW I PROMISE I’LL BEHAVE JUST SHOW ME THE WAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!
(What..? Who hasn’t had a nervous breakdown on the toilet?)
But letting go and accepting the fact that you don’t know, and being ok with that fact, is the first step to getting out of your head, into your body, and in touch with how you really feel towards certain matters.
And what does it matter If some dude you never met nor will ever meet, tells you through some blog post the answer to life, or what works for him. Even if you idolize the guy, there comes a time when you’ve got to take him off the pedestal and get in touch with how you feel, because it’s your life, and he doesn’t live with you, you do, 24/7.
So what’s my suggestion? (Like my suggestion even matters anyways, I’m just some dude who’s writing this blog article at 3am because I can’t sleep)
I believe in todays age many of us are mentally blocked and feel like we can’t move forward due to an entanglement in our thoughts. We’ve forgotten the importance of getting into our bodies and making a decision from our gut, and in order for that to happen, energy needs to be circulated through the whole body, so you can make whole full decisions, not half assed ones.
Over the past few months, We’ve been developing a certain facial and head massage technique that’s intended to move blocked energy from the head and face down into the body so you can continue to think things through clearly.
But what can I say about it? This is just a blog article, and I’m just some dude. Come and experience it for yourself. And bring your hamster.
