When is the last time you took a brain dump?

Do you ever have those moments when you look back on life and you’re surprised you didn’t know something about yourself? For about 35 years of my life, I had NO clue that I had anxiety and that I lived most of my days in my head. I came to learn that in a lot of ways, my head was my safe space - I could disconnect from my external surroundings and go inward to avoid life. In the chaotic household I grew up in, it was all just too much for me - the energy, the feelings, the sounds. So, being in my head kept me from having to feel all the things. And it kinda worked for a while, until it didn’t anymore.

One of the things I learned is that so much of what was happening inside my little brain, was shit that was never going to happen in real life. I was the master of creating a million different outcomes and scenarios to situations. And, I promise you - NONE of them were good! It was all doom and gloom happening upstairs.

But a few years ago, I had a major download on a long paddle boarding trip. Spirit told me that so much of the anxiety that we experience is just unprocessed fear. The other kicker is that we can pick up this energy and beliefs from our surroundings, society and other people. And for those of us that are energetically sensitive, it can be even more of an issue.

One of the things that became pivotal for my emotional and mental wellbeing is what I lovingly dubbed “brain dumps”. I mean, we take poops every day to release toxins from our body from the foods we digest, it only makes sense that we would do the same for our brains. I would grab a piece of paper and just let them fly! Fear about love, fear about being alone, fear about success and not having enough, blah, blah - you get the picture. But by giving these fears a voice and a platform, I was able t process them once and for all and oftentimes, seeing them on paper make me realize how ridiculous they were. But most importantly, giving myself the space to briefly see and acknowledge them, actually allowed me to feel any feelings around them in a safe space.

I invite you to try this for yourself. This is homework I often times channel for my coaching clients when we are working to expand their businesses or heal their finances. It is amazing to see the things that are lurking in your subconscious. Notice how you feel before and after the brain dump. If it feels good, make it part of your energetic maintenance.

BONUS points for all you overachievers out there - The other amazing thing I’ve seen is how transformative it is to have someone bear witness to your ponderings.
