You know how often we talk about the food we eat and how it affects our body. What we put inside affects the way our body functions. I agree with that. But I agree with more: what we put in our minds affects our soul (or psyche). Here is what I mean.
Let’s say your friends are people who gossip a lot. That means we feed our souls with useless or harmful information about others we do not need to know or should not know. At some point, either the soul becomes unable to carry this information and gets sick (maybe feeling heavy or drained) or it simply adapts to it and starts feeding other souls with that kind of information.
On the contrary, let’s say that we surround ourselves with people that feed us with information or sensation that helps us feel safe and grow. Then this kind of food is obviously good for the soul. It will make it more energetic and lively. A soul that is fed this way will then feed other souls in the right way and help them feel safe and grow too.
In a nutshell, what we feed our soul or psyche matters as much as what feed our body. That is why it is important for us to surround ourselves with people and things, environments that help us grow. Humans are a complete unit with their body and soul and it is important to pay attention to both.
Let me know what you think about this. What kind of differences did you notice in your psyche with different methods you use?
