I know that I am a born-again spiritual being, who possesses a soul (mind, feeler, thinker, and chooser) and abides in a physical body. Expounding on the soul and the brain I am reminded of a book, Who Switched Off My Brain? By Dr. Caroline Leaf. I was very impressed with the information and understanding that I embarked upon during a time when I was hurt and had experienced negativity by people of faith in the church.

There are twelve areas of toxic thoughts referred to as the “Dirty Dozen”- which can be harmful as poison in our minds and our bodies. Toxic thoughts do not just creep into our minds as a result of abuse or a horrific trauma. Toxic thoughts affect people in all stages of life, in every part of the world, every day. Even something as a minor irritation can become toxic, and these thoughts need to be swept away.

let me introduce you to The Dirty Dozen. I will be expounding on only one: Toxic Faith.

1. Toxic Thoughts

2. Toxic Emotions

3. Toxic Words

4. Toxic Choices

5. Toxic Dreams

6. Toxic Seeds

7. Toxic Faith

8. Toxic Love

9. Toxic Touch

10. Toxic Seriousness

11. Toxic Health

12. Toxic Schedules
