How to raise your spiritual and emotional IQ

How to raise your spiritual and emotional IQ

spiritual and emotional IQ is the ability to see a bigger picture, to see cause and effect within your life at a level above what an average person would consider. We as human beings, tend to believe that we are destined to have life pan out a certain way. Our family and friends lives are similar to ours, so that’s our reality and we accept it. Sure there are some ‘lucky’ people out there achieving a lifestyle we could never envisage for ourselves, but you feel they’re different, special and blessed ?

But you know what? They’re not. They just have a higher spiritual and emotional intelligence that has allowed them to create their life beyond conventional limitations. I’m going to show you how you can achieve that too.

So spiritual and emotional IQ means turning life on its head. Instead of walking around and looking at how you’re the victim of everything going on around you, take a look and ask – what if I could create anything and transform everything in my life? What if my own belief systems – my actions and decisions – are causing my life to be this way, in every capacity? What if I could gain a perspective that was high enough to change that?

The cause and effect relationship to life

Those with a spiritual IQ say there is a cause and effect relationship for everything that happens in the physical universe. When I started to increase my understanding of these concepts I could instantly see I was spending every resource I had to create what I really didn’t want in my life. Back then, I was complaining, I was angry, I was confused. If someone had come and said ‘why don’t you stop creating this life for yourself?’ I would have refused any responsibility.

As you raise your spiritual and emotional IQ you start seeing a bigger piece of the world, which gives you a different perspective of these labels you’ve put on yourself. You can also see the cause and effect relationship that these things have in your life and to the results that you’re achieving. Often, these are not the results you want.

How you can change your life around today

This is how you can learn to see life through a different lens, and start recognizing limiting mindsets, and how to change them. The belief you can is the only prerequisite required for you to achieve it.

  • Don’t do anything with the view you’re the victim of circumstances. Take control, take responsibility. Don’t buy into your own ‘poor me’ story.
  • Plug into some positive things that give you the perception the control is within you. Personal development books, podcasts, a community of positive people! Steer clear of those within your circle who are permanently playing the victim. They’ll only drag you down.
  • Tune into your own language. Listen to your internal dialogue, and word choices you make while conversing with others. Make sure it consists of I can, I want, I will. And not I can’t, I won’t, I want to BUT.

Anything the mind can see and believe, it can achieve

You don’t know how quickly things can change when you get on track spiritually, emotionally, and stop engaging in the drama. Make space in your mind for you to believe anything is possible then within that space; start to create exactly what you want:

Physically – in your life on a daily basis by your every day actions.

Mentally – by what you’re putting into your mind and your internal conversations.

Visually – visualize your future and design it exactly how you want.

The possibilities are endless. Welcome to the journey towards your extraordinary life!

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
