Maat E's Mental Health Message

Face, feel then fight your fears. Before we can overcome the obstacle of something we are afraid of we must face it or identify exactly what it is. Facing it also means turning our attention to the fear, not avoiding that it exists. Once we clarify what we fear the next step is to allow ourselves to feel all of the emotions that come with it. Go into whatever the fear brings up as difficult and painful as it may be. Relief will come. Then fight. Take acton to address or remove the factors that create the fear in the first place. Work hard against it and you will over come.

Maat E's Mental Health Message

Act to please your higher-self then worry about pleasing other people. 

When you follow your intuition and act based on internal trust, there is no way you can go wrong.  It is very easy to get caught up in pleasing other people. We then find ourselves making externally based choices and acting on decisions that serve everyone except our higher-self. It is important to consider the needs of others, but not at the expense of your own well-being. Practice the habit of pleasing your higher self. It always knows best and can not steer you wrong.

Ma'at E's Mental Health Message

It is more important to take action toward what you want to be doing than trying to avoid actions you don't want to do. So for example, instead of trying to avoid an argument, practice communicating more calmly. Instead of trying not to drink too much soda, drink more water. Talk in a loving tone instead of trying not to be nasty.  The idea behind these examples is that what we focus on we attract.  Ultimately. what we do more of replaces what we want to do less.

Ma'at E's Mental Health Message

Resurrect yourself! Return to life!

Many of us walk around in life each year as if we are dead. We have little joy and can not seem to take action or go about life in a way that has some meaning. When we feel like we are walking dead or simply find ourselves doing the same routine or the same activity day in and day out, then it is time to resurrect and return to life. One of the simplest ways to beginning living a more full life is to take action. Begin doing something you don't usually do. More importantly, begin doing something that reconnects you to your sense of spirit--that feeling or consciousness within that is connected to things greater than yourself. Once you begin taking action life will feel more like it is meant to be lived. Have a peace filled day.
