When your mind drifts away, where does it go. Do your thoughts fill you with Love or do they fill you with fear. Do they uplift and support you or do they doubt and weigh you down. It is important to know this because what you think, you become.
Your thoughts manifest what is around you and your thoughts control how you feel. You take time to organize your space but what about organizing your thoughts. You have years of thoughts that no longer serve you and are holding you back and it is very important to release them and be in a clear mindset.
When you are overwhelmed with your thoughts, you become frustrated and it can be a challenge to get out of the clutter and chaos. When you are mindfully organized, you feel a sense of calmness and your day will flow much smoother.
Step out of your head and into the moment.
Getting in touch with your internal stuff allows you to process it, which lets you move on from it. You grew up with the notion that it is better to hide your feelings than talk about them.
This is one of the most destructive ideas you carry with you, because your thoughts never get processed – they just spin around your head ad infinitum. Addressing them by talking about them (friends or better yet, a psychologist) is one way to step out of them.
There is almost no mental practice that has more research behind it than meditation. Meditation seems to deactivate the ‘Me centers’ of the brain, the areas that are active when you are having thoughts related to the self-referential thoughts.
Meditating helps treat other related mental health issues, like depression, addiction, anxiety, and attention deficit disorders, as well as to improve concentration, attention, and cognitive performance.
Recite a mantra and stick with it. Mantras are tremendously helpful, as they instantly center you. Say to yourself : ‘I am the creator of my life. Whatever I think about creates my reality.’ or ‘I am not the body. I am not even the mind.’ It makes you less apt to think about the crazy and negative stuff. It encourages you to focus on the present moment.
Release the thoughts that make you feel bad. Repeat your mantra. Notice the sound of your car’s engine or the water from your shower. Think about what you can do for another person today; kindness is the ultimate calming and empowering force.
Your mind can be your ally. It can be your buddy, your playmate, your coach. And it wants to be. It is waiting patiently for the promotion. So, give it the job it deserves.
