Recently, I’ve had the rewarding experience of assisting young athletes with ADHD. ADHD remains one of the most misunderstood conditions, posing unique challenges for many youths. While it often equips individuals with bursts of concentrated energy – a potential advantage in performance-driven areas like sports or acrobatics – it’s seldom the strength that brings them to my doorstep. The primary areas of concern tend to be their personal relationships, self-identity, and home life.
It’s important to highlight that some individuals with ADHD exhibit a higher susceptibility to substance dependencies, such as alcohol, marijuana, and cigarettes. Interestingly, this trend appears slightly less prevalent among ADHD athletes compared to the general populace. When discussing addiction, it’s essential to realize that many with ADHD are exceptionally sensitive to external feedback, which often stems from an internalized negative self-image due to their unique cognitive wiring. Feeling perpetually off-kilter, they may seek solace in substances to mute their inner critic. Unfortunately, this often exacerbates issues in relationships, disrupts school and work responsibilities, and deteriorates their home environment.
One strategy I’ve found effective is guiding them through pineal gland activation and encouraging the conscious engagement of the brain’s left temporal lobe. This facilitates a calm, methodical mindset dominated by structured thinking. Regularly accessing this state can greatly aid in task completion and provide a sense of capability when comparing themselves to peers. The pineal gland plays a crucial role here; it’s believed to decode emotional and intuitive messages relayed by the soul. Strengthening this connection can lead to profound self-acceptance and clarity about life’s purpose, offering a resilient buffer against daily ADHD-related hurdles.
Another essential technique I employ is Heart Clearing. Given the emotional baggage many with ADHD carry, releasing these entrenched negative memories can be transformative. Heart clearing is essentially an opportunity to let go of lingering pain and unresolved issues. This process has proven life-altering for many and is particularly pivotal for those with ADHD, paving the way for genuine self-empowerment.
