With all the detox programs available to cleanse our liver, colon, and kidneys, I thought I’d offer a mind detox overview to help you cleanse your mind.
Why you need mind detox program
God planned that all your mental musings would work in cooperation with his Spirit.
Unfortunately toxic thinking has built up in your brain for so many years that it is often hard to hear the voice of the Spirit. (Shocking, I know, but it happens to all of us.)
Your mind doesn’t use the same method of natural elimination and cleansing used by the rest of your body.
Sure you can do a brain cleanse that removes the buildup of mercury in your brain, but that doesn’t remove the buildup of bad thoughts that contaminate your whole person—spirit, soul, and body.
Negative thinking encourages toxic living. Anxiety, depression, fear, accusations, assumptions, and criticism all poison our mental life and our relationships.
It’s not a pretty picture.
How a mind detox program works

For an overview of how cleansing the mind works, I’ve provided seven past posts:
No, I’m not selling any fancy mind detox program that comes in a bottle for $99.99. This stuff is all free and easily referenced in your Bible.
Happy cleansing and have a lovely day, Susan
