Hello there, Happy Monday!!!
I hope you are doing GRRREAT! Life is GRRREAT! Isn't it?
Got a question! Do you quiet your mind?
What I am asking is do you meditate or do you practice deep relaxation?
What does it mean to quiet your mind? It means to stop the obsessive thinking of thoughts of worry about the future or regrets about the past. It means to stop thinking and take your focused mind out of your thoughts and into this moment.
Why would you quiet your mind? The reason I quiet my mind is so that I can be still and know God. I have always known that God is in the stillness of my thoughts. That is a Big statement and it is really hard to explain. It is something that you would know and understand if you quieted your mind.
Let me try to explain, just a little better. When you worry about your bills, or your weight, or your relationships, or your future, that is not God speaking to you. God is not worry, God is in your faith. "Be still and know that I am God." "Have faith." Are the things that I am trying to explain.
When you are obsessing about your relationship with your significant other, or your crazy boss, or the person at work that is mean to you, or the person at school who had the nerve to say certain things to you, or about your kids and their behavior, that is not God speaking to you.
When you are quiet, in the stillness, you can and will hear that still small voice that God speaks from.
When I meditate, better known as quieting my mind, I know that is where God is, in my mind, I mean. I am not saying that is the only place God is because He is everywhere. What I am saying is you can see, hear, smell, and just notice the beauty in things, and in yourself, when you quiet your mind often.
That beauty is where you can see God. The beauty of His creations.
If you have doubt, fear, worry, or you have obsessive thoughts that you think over and over again, hour after hour, day, after day, you will benefit from quieting your mind. These obsessive thoughts that you are having stem from a stressful habit of a racing mind or an obsessive thought pattern.
If you quiet your mind you can replace that stressful habit of obsessive thinking with a successful practice.
It's all about destressing yourself! Quiet your mind, make it a practice, and then wallah! You will replace your stressful habit.
Easy? Maybe, maybe not. It's all in your beliefs. I have seen people change slowly, over time, and I have seen people change in an hour.
Try my audio, Deep Relaxation. Listen to it every evening, before you go to bed, and then just notice your ability to relax. Notice your ability to relax any time and any where. Make it a conscious change and you will see the beauty in the moment without your over active mind.
But please, don't believe me. Try it for yourself.
That's all I got friend!
Have a great week and don't forget to have fun and be playful.
