NO, I Don't Want Any Of It! Now How Am I Caught In The Middle Of It...

Updated: Jan 17

How to navigating the Wellness Maze: Unveiling the truth amidst smoke and mirrors.


I know! I was there....surrounded by dangling carrots and false intentions in the betterment of their own goals an ambitions.

When it smells like SHIT....it is shit, there is no doctoring it up...


Time to navigate the mess!


In the era of information overload, finding authentic wellness guidance can feel like navigating a labyrinth.

The journey toward well-being is often clouded by conflicting ideologies, half-truths, and oversimplified teachings. As seekers of balance, it becomes crucial to discern the essence of ancient wisdom and the pitfalls of modern oversimplification.

Sometimes the sweet and simple are exactly what it is...nothing more, and missing all of the middle and most important information....the foundation!

Finding ourselves in a Wellness paradox:

The wellness landscape is rich with diverse traditions, each offering unique insights into the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit.

Yet, in our pursuit of quick fixes, we encounter a paradox – the oversimplification of profound teachings. Westernized interpretations often strip away the intricate layers, leaving us with diluted versions that lack the depth of the original wisdom.

True wellness is a tapestry woven with the threads of holistic principles, acknowledging the symbiotic relationship between ancient wisdom and modern understanding.

It's crucial to delve into the foundations of practices, embracing the completeness of teachings rather than cherry-picking convenient aspects into our lives.

How do we navigate through false narratives??...

The journey to well-being requires us to discern between genuine knowledge and the smoke and mirrors of misinformation. False narratives can lead us astray, perpetuating unrealistic expectations or promoting superficial solutions. Critical thinking becomes our compass, guiding us through the wellness maze.


Here are 5 steps that I found helped me:


• Verify Sources: Ensure the credibility of the sources providing information. Check the reputation and expertise of authors, websites, or platforms sharing wellness content. Reliable sources are more likely to provide accurate and evidence-based information.

Research ~Research ~Research

• Cross-Check Information: Don't rely on a single source; cross-check information across multiple reputable platforms. Consistency in information across different sources increases the likelihood of accuracy, while disparities may signal potential inaccuracies.

• Critical Evaluation: Develop a critical mindset when consuming wellness information. Question claims that seem sensationalized or promise quick fixes. Evaluate whether the presented evidence aligns with scientific principles and whether the information is based on well-established practices.

• Discern Emotional Appeals: Be wary of content that primarily relies on emotional appeals without substantial evidence. False narratives often exploit emotions to create a sense of urgency or fear. Maintain a balanced and rational approach, considering both logic and emotions.

• Consult Experts: Seek guidance from qualified experts or practitioners in the field of wellness. Professionals with a deep understanding of the subject can provide valuable insights and help you navigate through misleading narratives. Consultation with experts adds a layer of assurance to the accuracy of the information you receive.

How can we have a bit more mindful discernment??

As we navigate the sea of information, mindfulness becomes our ally. Cultivating discernment allows us to sift through the noise, identifying teachings rooted in truth rather than succumbing to the allure of quick fixes. Embrace a journey that encourages curiosity, self-reflection, and an openness to diverse perspectives.


Here are a few ways active mindfulness has helped me in this last year or so :


• Develop Self-Awareness: Start by cultivating awareness of your thoughts, emotions, and reactions. Regularly check in with yourself to understand how you respond to different situations. This self-awareness lays the foundation for mindful discernment.

Even the negitive ones, you don't want that shit to stay up there in your filling cabinet!!

• Practice Mindful Observation: Observe information, ideas, or teachings without immediate judgment. Take a step back and allow yourself to witness without attaching to preconceived notions. Mindful observation provides space for a clearer understanding before forming opinions.

• Question Assumptions: Challenge your assumptions and beliefs about wellness. Mindful discernment involves questioning preconceived notions and being open to alternative perspectives. Ask yourself why you hold certain beliefs and whether they align with your experiences and values.

• Engage in Critical Thinking: Develop critical thinking skills to analyze information more objectively. Evaluate the credibility of sources, consider different viewpoints, and assess the evidence supporting various wellness practices. Critical thinking empowers you to make informed decisions.

• Practice Non-Attachment: Cultivate a sense of non-attachment to specific outcomes or ideologies. Approach wellness with an open mind, acknowledging that your understanding may evolve over time. Non-attachment allows you to adapt to new information without being rigid in your beliefs.


How do we bridge the gap between tradition and modernity, it helps to actively seek out comprehensive teachings. Engage with diverse sources, consult authentic practitioners, and explore the roots of ancient wisdom. By integrating the full spectrum of knowledge, we cultivate a more profound understanding of holistic well-being.


Eventually, the quest for wellness is a pilgrimage through a landscape adorned with both truth and illusions. Embrace the richness of ancient wisdom while navigating the challenges of a modern, fast-paced world. By fostering mindfulness, discernment, and a commitment to holistic foundations, we pave the way for genuine well-being that transcends the limitations of smoke and mirrors.

As we add more clarity, knowledge and understanding to the situation, the truth reveals itself and justice is served!


Thank you for taking some time with me today as we navigate this thing we call life...
