[S6][E6] Do Actions speak louder than Words?
Thank you for tuning into another episode of the Hood Therapy podcast.  In this episode I have a mini vent session concerning whether actions speak louder than words. When you’re in a situation and words/actions aren’t lining up how do you go about it? While words can add to the essence of communication, I don’t believe they’re the only way to do so.

[S6][E5] The War between Spiritual & Physical
Yooo! Thank you for tuning into another episode of Hood Therapy.  When you think of the physical and spiritual, which attracts you more and why?  Personally, it’s the spirit that speaks to me, sometimes better than the mind or mouth can. Understanding your spirit means you understand who you are and what your purpose is. It also gives you the ability to test the mind and spirit of others to determine who is for you and who isn’t! It should cost millions but we get it for free🤑. Tap into it! You can follow and interact with me with my link ( http://brandinsmith.contactin.bio ).

[S6][E4] The benefits of Knowing Thyself
[S6][E4] The benefits of Knowing Thyself
To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom. Socrates This assertion, imperative in the form, indicates that man must stand and live according his nature.                          Temple of Delphi Man has to look at himself. Man know thyself; then thou shalt know the Universe and God. Pythagoras Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.                               Carl Jung  My friend...care for your psyche...know thyself, for once we know ourselves, we may learn how to care for ourselves.        Socrates  To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.                                William Shakespeare  Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.                           Henry David Thoreau  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Nelson Mandela  Resolve to be thyself: and know that he who finds himself, loses his misery.           Matthew Arnold You can follow and interact with me with my link ( http://brandinsmith.contactin.bio ).

[Ep. 14] Do thoughts reflect/determine reality?
Yooooo! Thank you for tuning into the Hood Therapy podcast. In this episode, I talk about believing in  you. Question? Do our thoughts/actions reflect or define our reality? The mind is like a computer and your thoughts are like the software. Faulty software will have us subconsciously holding onto these quiet viruses which cause us to consciously live a life foreign to us.  As these influences bombard you, remember who you are.. what you stand for.. and why you are fighting. You won’t always be in control of your thoughts, yet it’s imperative that they’re not in control of you! You can follow and interact with me with my link ( http://brandinsmith.contactin.bio ).

Thank you for tuning into the Hood Therapy podcast. In this episode, I talk about healing trauma. Trauma is one of those things we can’t see, but we know it exists. You can’t touch it, but you can feel it. We might not always notice it, but it impacts every move we make! It’s essential that we heal these unspoken experiences as they can dampen our growth. Whether it’s talking to a friend or a therapist, it is in our best interest to turn negative experiences into lessons for our youth and a positive outlook on life!

What does love mean to you? How do you express yours? Love is one of those concepts we all want to take part in, yet it’s not fully understood. Love is more than a word.. it’s an action. It’s not easily taken away nor is it supposed to be. The quicker we learn to love and embrace ourselves, we learn to do the same for those around us.

Perspective (Ep. 22, B) Allow yourself to feel
when is the last time you’ve felt? truly felt? throughout life, we go through experiences that shape us in ways we can’t imagine. in many of them, we don’t take the opportunity to feel and heal. feeling can be challenging due to the amount of accountability and alignment needed to proceed through it. the process sis not easy. the process is not simple. the process is meant to strengthen you in all aspects all while aligning you to your true purpose! use your current situation as motivation & trust your process. in order to get to the next step you have to pass this one. start questioning what you feel and why.. it might be your way out 💯 You can follow and interact with me with my link ( http://brandinsmith.contactin.bio ).

Perspective (Ep. 20) embrace the rainy days 🍃
Happy Passover! As apart of my birthday celebration (03/20), I’ll be posting everyday this week! Looking outside what do you see? Is it sun? Is it clouds? Right now, I see rain. Many times when we think about rain, we see darkness, depression, sadness, etc. Everything starts in darkness. Everything. Through time, it gradually becomes light. Think about your mind. As you go on, learning and experiencing, you transform from uneducated to highly intellectual. This is the same with your process. It may start off dark and unknown to you, but as you learn more about yourself and what makes you, you, it becomes easier to understand. Everyday won’t be filled with light but that doesn’t take away the greatness from it. A change in mentality is a change in lifestyle. Your thoughts/experiences/actions play a major role in all.

Learning and experiencing is apart of the journey. When times are good they are great, in those times that aren’t. It is critical that you allow yourself to learn and grow.  At times we can be our biggest critic. We have a way of discouraging ourselves and not being kind to self when we need it the most.

In life, understand communication is vital for the development of a relationship. Not only communicating about things that are easy but those that are challenging as well.

As apart of my birthday celebration (03/20), I’ll be posting everyday this week! when it comes to things we want more of in life (love, loyalty, understanding, wisdom, patience, etc) why do we tend to look outward? The things that you desire the most have to start with you. Think about a plate. It is the foundation for the food you will eat. When it comes to you, your understanding of self is that foundation. Without it, those around you are not able to add to it. What are they adding to? It may seem hard but it is essential that you understand who you are. Know what makes you happy. What makes you sad. What makes you get out of bed in the morning.. what makes you you! Once again one can’t add to something not already established.. even a minor foundation is better than none.

As apart of my birthday celebration (03/20), I’ll be posting everyday this week! You ever take a second to think about what you’re thinking about? Many times in life we are consumed by thoughts and feelings that have no benefit to us. (Personally, mine is overthinking). When it comes to mental stress or anguish, remember there is another side of the coin. Ask yourself what has me feeling so misaligned? How can I get to a state of peace? This transitions you to a solution based perspective. There is always a way we can grow.. growth is painful but it is essential for elevation. Changing the way you think is the first step to a better you. Hang around influences who motivate you to do better. Put yourself in the position to succeed.. not only physically but spiritually and mentally as well! You can follow and interact with me with my link ( http://brandinsmith.contactin.bio ).

As apart of my birthday celebration (03/20), I’ll be posting everyday this week! You know what’s funny?   There will always be an one who feels they know what’s best for you. They create a version of you that does not exist. Not only does it take you away from you truly are, but it strips away your individuality.   One day we realize some of those we depended on once before were not able to give us what we truly desired, freedom and understanding. There is nothing wrong with embracing individuality.    It’s pretty easy to see a Diamond amongst rock. Why? It’s different, for good reason. It stands out. It’s high worth is caused by its rarity. You are that Diamond. Embrace it ‼️ You can follow and interact with me with my link ( http://brandinsmith.contactin.bio ).

Perspective (Ep. 6) Semen Retention, a Superpower?
Any benefits of semen retention? Semen retention has been one of the practices that has singlehandedly changed my life for the better. The process involves much discipline, self understanding, patience and strength. In a world where we are pushed to waste our seed whenever we have the chance.. what if I told you, it’s a means of accelerating the extermination of your life force? Your sexual and creative energy stem form the same source.. Discipline dictates which you give more energy to. We either live to better those around us or reinforce a means of self destruction.

Perspective (Ep. 4) passion x purpose = legacy
What do you define as a great name / person? In today’s society greatness is determined by what you carry externally. External validation is a deception. Some live by it to gain what they want/need out of life. Having money, designer clothes, cars, likes, etc means nothing if you feel empty on the inside. Ask yourself.. who am I? What am I here for? Have I tapped into my into my passion? This will lead to you discovering your purpose.

where does wisdom come from? how is it a byproduct of alignment?   Wisdom and alignment should be synonymous in my opinion. How can you elevate and gain spiritual resources when you don’t have the capacity to store it?  Wisdom comes from TMH, while alignment comes from a mental shift.  Choose elevation over distractions. Choose positivity over fear. Uplift those around you.  As you fly higher, naturally you’ll cause others to do the same. It all starts with you!

[Ep. 16] Dare to practice Self Care (w/ Nikia Webster)
[Ep. 16] Dare to practice Self Care (w/ Nikia Webster)
16 episodes in! Welcome to Hood Therapy everyone! My name is Brandin. I appreciate you for tuning in as I think you'll really enjoy this episode. This time around, I bring one of my good friends Nikia on and discuss the the importance of self care and how to practice it. I feel self care is essential in maneuvering through life, but its not always something we put much importance into.  Self care is health care. In order for us to genuinely flourish, we have to make sure our temple is a well oiled machine. One of the ways to do that is practicing self care!

[Ep. 13] What it takes to Succeed
Whats up everyone? Welcome to the Hood Therapy Podcast. In today's episode, I discuss what it takes to succeed. I feel we want nothing more than to succeed in our goals & ventures.. but what happens when we don't? Your response to that question is what makes or breaks you. Success is often times portrayed as a straight linear path, but often times its full of curves and dips as a means to throw us off. Success isn't as easy as we think nor is it uncommon for us to achieve it.  You achieved it just by getting up this morning.  Keep striving! I'm right beside you along the journey.

[Ep. 9] Diving deeper into Sex
Whats good? Welcome to the Hood Therapy Podcast. In this episode, I discuss The Power of Sex. I think sex is vital for reproduction and is a very intimate way of affection.. but using it incorrectly can be your demise. Sex is one of those things we don't really talk about due to our heavily sexualized society but its one thing you have to be very mindful of. Its deeper than a feeling, its a tie and in this episode, I hope I'm able to convince you of this.  Don’t forget to connect with me on Linkedin, Twitter and Instagram.
