How Do I Gain More Control of My Mind?
Become Aware of my Thoughts
Listen to my body for clues: Am I holding tension anywhere? Does anything hurt? What feels off?
Listen to my mood for clues: Am I irritable? Am I sad? Am I overwhelmed?
Listen to interactions with others: What is the energy? What are people reflecting back to me? What would my best friend ask me about right now?
Now that I am aware of my thoughts, I can begin to simply NOTICE and identify them; even give them a name
I do not assign good or bad, I just notice - I do not tell myself a story or hold any narrative around my experience
Hold myself in a space of compassion and empathy
Recognize who or what is behind the message or messages (i.e., is this the "black cloud”, inner critic or is this my authentic self?)
I am now in a position to choose what belief system I want to stand in
Interject my faith and/or inner wisdom to help discern which beliefs truly set me free
Claim a more freeing, truthful and empowering belief and feel the difference!
