I’m Amy, founder of ‘An Expansive Mind’. I initially created this space for myself, so that I could log all of my thoughts, readings, research and musings on alternative and holistic lifestyles and therapies but now I want to use this space to share all the things I learn about all the different types of therapies and tools we can use to raise of vibrations and improve our wellbeing.
It struck me that a lot of blogs and websites have a specific focus (makes sense right?) but I found this frustrating because I like to have my fingers in lots of pies! I like to learn as much as I can about all that I can and then let all that knowledge seep into mind to inform my own personal values, practices and beliefs – I like to borrow from everywhere!
Another thing, is that I do quite like my science and I really like to be able to explain and educate people who might not believe in the same things as me. Don’t get me wrong, most of the time faith and belief are enough for me (we all know it works!) but sometimes I do wonder where things have come from and why something might be a certain way and ‘just because’ doesn’t quite cut it. Now, I don’t feel the need to defend my beliefs but it is a great feeling when you’re able to explain the real world practicality and ‘realness’ of some of the woo-woo and see someone’s face change! So where I can, I’m also going to find the scientific fact behind the woo-woo because I want to spread the positivity and I know believing isn’t always enough!
So. What is ‘An Expansive Mind’??
Well, you know when you’re stressed, your head feels all tight and like you couldn’t possibly fit anymore stuff in there? It can feel like someone’s shoved a load of cotton wool in there or like a tightly scrunched piece of paper in your fist. Now close your eyes and imagine a carnival outside your window, with thousands of people, cheering, singing, dancing… Now imagine the stars, and the moon, the planets and the Milky Way, the Sun and other galaxies, to the end of the Universe…
You did it, didn’t you? You just fitted the whole universe in your mind. It’s expansive.
Our mind can be as big or as small as we want it to be and I’m all about expanding mine!
Let’s expand our minds and raise our vibrations!
Love & Light,
