Imagine you enter a messy room,.. How do you feel?
Can we compare our mind with a messy room, when we are distracted?
The first Method:
In our mind we have many voices that are arguing, negotiating, or even disturbing us…
If we deny one of these voices, we support this voice with energy and strengthen it.
For instance, a devotee went to his guru and complained that his mind was chattering all the time so he could not meditate or find peace…
The guru said: don’t think on mice, if you think on a mouse punish yourself… Because if you think about mice you eventually become a mouse in your next life…
The devotee went home and was wondering why his Guru had told him not to think on mice? He has never thought on mice before… But when he started with his meditation; he was continuously thinking about mice… It became worse and worse…
What you deny/neglect/suppress/fight that you empower…
So we watch our thoughts and don’t fight against them.
We give our different voices unique names so we can identify them without fighting …
When a voice wants to say something we let the voice say something to us.
Afterwards we say: “thank you for sharing.” Or if we don’t have time, please wait, share your opinion in an hour or so… (be truthful and definitive).
Through the discrimination of our different voices and watching them, they will lose their power over us… Quote: If you call a demon by his name, he becomes weaker…
The second Method:
We make every day 3 times brainstorming for 5 minutes and write down every single thought…
After a month, we read all of our thoughts. Then we identify our thinking pattern that repeats and again… So if we run the next time in the same pattern we already have identified, we simply notify that…
And the thinking pattern will lose so their power over us.
