In our reality full of obstacles, incurable diseases and other sufferings, we all look for a solution. The easier, the simpler, the better. Sometimes, our hope and belief are too big that we forget to involve our mind.
It's so strange to be in the intuitive community and I advocate for critical thinking. Do I believe in magic? Yes, there're always magic and miracles in life. But my scientific mind and my skeptical self will sometimes stop me and remind me that I have a powerful brain to think besides my imagination.
Of course, we live and do with our heart's desire. But remember, living without balance is always a bad thing. Mind, body, spirit, heart are connected and they need each other to be complete. When I'm in the tarot and mystical community, it's easy to emphasize and praise the spirit and heart and the intuition. Nobody ever talks about the brain, the mind and the earthy body. And when you're looking (or not) for certain articles to support the power of subconscious mind, you'll find them all over the internet in many websites full of ads. Has any one been bothered to check if any of these websites is even minutely credible? Granted that there's no official scientific study of magic or miracle, but to disregard critical thinking and credibility completely is ignorant.
I strongly believe in balance in life. Any of the extremes isn't healthy or good and ultimately will bring you disappointment. A person who is cynical and refuses to see anything magical will fail to achieve something great. A person who goes with their feelings and blind hope and faith will have a fair share of disappointment and pain. Like the Tarot has four suits (swords, wands, cups, and pentacles), we should strive to balance our mind, body, spirit and heart. It's important to heed our dreams and our heart's telling, but we didn't evolve here to forget our brain. Yes, there's no denying that the subconscious mind possess great power. But please don't forget the power of our conscious critical thinking.
For example, we all have read about the power of positive thinking and positive words. But positive thinking alone will not cure any disease, much less cancer. To heal yourself, seek to find balance and be at one with your body, mind, spirit and heart. Positive thinking lifts your spirit but your body needs to be taken cared of by material physical things too like therapies.
One more reason that I resonate very well with Zen Buddhism and Dalai Lama's teaching. It's great to be spiritual and keep positive attitude. But do not lose your curiosity and forget to question things.
In conclusion, positive thinking, positive attitude, love with your heart and use your brain to think critically are all in sync and your body, mind, spirit as a whole will thank you for it.
