Yes, you have lost your mind, or parts of it. Guaranteed. And, just like losing most things, losing your mind is not usually a positive thing to have happen to you! It might have felt OK up until now, because maybe you did not notice what you lost. You have probably adapted or got use to being without those parts your mind. It became 'normal'. Never-the-less, when you lost your mind, it had an impact on you and your life, and it wasn't a good impact - unless of course, it was.
The good news is that as you restore your mind, your life will be happier, more successful and more powerful. If you have all your mind within your conscious control, the more pain, struggle and stress you will avoid.
With that clarification, some of my reader's might say, "Ahh!, Why didn't you say so, Richard? I understand now. Yes, I am aware that I have lost control of my mind." Or, you might be a reader that still doesn't understand. That's OK. I will explain. I will first tell you about some of the symptoms that you are likely experiencing, give you a little understanding of the makeup of your mind and then some tips on how to get started in taking back control of your whole mind.
What would it be like if you were able to break free of these limited patterns of thoughts, emotions and behaviors? What if you felt more in control of your experience of life and your destiny?
This is all possible if you get back in charge of your whole mind - one piece/peace at a time.
Let's start by understanding your mind and then where/how you have lost control over it.
To start with, psycho-spiritual models breaks our mind into 2-5 levels of mind. For our purposes here, we are going to use 3. These three minds are the conscious mind, the subconscious mind and the Super-conscious mind. Each of these minds has different roles and 'powers'. To be of 'whole' mind and in full power and potential, then it is important to work with all of these minds appropriately:
In a sense, all of them.
The good news is that you have an internal guidance system that is ready to take you there... to take you HOME to complete wholeness of mind, love, peace and joy. This guidance system will take you to your true purpose, fulfillment and meaning. Wouldn't it be crazy not to decide to devote yourself to knowing this Super-conscious mind and becoming Joy? Freedom? Love? Bliss?
So how do you get started in restoring your mind to sanity? There are thousands of books, courses, teachers and Gurus that will say they have the answers and 'the' way for you. It can be overwhelming just choosing where to start! I suggest you start here:
Step 1: Make up your mind. If you have not already done so, DECIDE to become whole again and fully commit yourself to renewing and correcting all errors in your mind and to embracing your true power and freedom. DEVOTE your life to waking up - Being conscious.
Step 2: Ask and surrender to your inner KNOWING. Surrender to what LIFE desires to bring you. Ask the Super-Conscious to reveal your next steps to freedom and commit to discerning and following each KNOWING step you are given. Your KNOWING is beyond your beliefs. Learn to trust it. Let go of any resistance to this FLOW. Your KNOWING KNOWS the perfect, customized path to pure peace and who/what can assist you in your journey.
If you do not know yet how to discern your 'true inner voice' from the 'ego voices' you are accustomed to listening to, ask the Super-conscious to help you to clearly hear and discern Truth. Trust that the answers will come.
Step 3: Practice Awareness. Start witnessing or watching your thoughts, emotions, body, behaviors and relationships and what is showing up in your 'reality'. Your 'reality' is a reflection of what is going on in your whole mind.
Step 4: Take personal responsibility. Accept that somehow through your own mind you have created or are co-creating any limiting experiences. Take responsibility and decide to change what is within your power.
Step 5. Take action. Action can take many forms. If you are receiving guidance from your KNOWING, then it may come in the form of an action you are invited to take. Take it. The action might be a decision you need to make, a task you need to do, or someone you need to speak to. The action could be to reprogram some limiting beliefs, release emotions, to forgive or do shadow integration work. If you don't know how to reprogram limiting beliefs or forgive, let yourself be guided to the right resources or person(s) to help you.
Step 6. Celebrate your successes and learn from mis-takes. You'll get feedback. If you make a mis-take, learn from it and adjust. It is only a matter of time before you know that you are success and you can do no wrong.
Step 7. Continue and know that you are entitled to miracles along the way.

If, after you have read this you are still very unclear of your path forward, I get it. Most of us want someone to show us that one clear 'thing' that will fix everything. We are wanting a Guru or 'Genie' that will grant us our wishes and instantly eliminate all our pain and suffering. Our habit is to search outside of ourselves for a Genie that is not there.
What I have learned again and again is that we are the Genie that we are looking for. The only problem is that we have locked up this Power and Wisdom in a vessel of limiting beliefs, denials, and lies. It is going to take a little conscious rubbing on your mind to fully awaken to your inner Genius.
Start rubbing now. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Your Genius KNOWs the perfect path to Peace. And if my Genius is able to help you unlock your Genius, I will be in joy.
