In this episode, Dianne Allen and P. Susan Jackson give some words of wisdom about how you can deal with mental turmoil.
"All Emotions Allow Us to Understand Who We Are." — P. Susan Jackson (09:29-09:34)
There's a lot of turmoil that happens within our thinking every day. Many people don't take time for self-reflection and are afraid to dive into negative emotions. But at the same time, you have to embrace who you are. There has to be some regulation and boundaries to maintain discipline in your life.
Part One of 'How to Deal with Mental Turmoil with P. Susan Jackson'
Dianne asks how Susan coaches people who are struggling to get a sweet sleep. Susan says, "If you want to sleep well, you have to look at all aspects of your physiology and environmental interface. That goes for things like being careful with the types of food you consume and how many hours you're spending on screens. Some of us have jobs where we're very screen heavy.
"Getting enough sleep helps keep your mind and body healthy." – P. Susan Jackson (25:51-25:56)
The world is beautiful because we can connect with people, but let's take the time to reflect if we're balancing that out with time in the world away from screens. The room that you sleep in is also significant." Susan also added that developing a relaxation practice, like listening to a piece of soothing music, is helpful. Just the whole idea of letting go of the day.
Part Two of 'How to Deal with Mental Turmoil with P. Susan Jackson'
Susan has tremendous compassion for people who are feeling unseen and unheard. That's a super tight place. There are many ways to joyfully express yourself. But sometimes it takes full acceptance of the range and depth of your complicated feelings. Be celebratory with yourself and share that with other people around you. We don't have to live shut down lives where we live in denial of our positive qualities. Every profoundly gifted person is unique.
"Be celebratory with yourself and share that with other people around you." – P. Susan Jackson (44:58-45:03)
When you meet an eccentric person, be a little patient. Could you give them a little space? Be open to the possibility. Take a risk with someone who seems a little different. Please don't wait until someone is buried in the ground before we talk about how awesome they are. We need to support each other because people present themselves in different ways.
Dianne Allen ends this podcast with these words, "If you are resonating with this topic, follow us and learn the different things that we're doing. But I want you to realize that if you hear our voice, there is no accident and there's a reason why you're listening to us. Especially if you've been listening all of this time and you still want to hear more. It's because there's something about you that's amazing and wonderful that's trying to emerge. So, let it come out in its full expression, and we will support you in any way we can."
