We become our thoughts – Buddha
Your mind is very powerful. It is the most useful tool you have, but there are two sides to it. It is either you are in charge of it or not. Your mind can stop you from realizing your dreams or push you to realizing your dreams.
If you yearn to be in charge of your life, take control of your mind, live a rich and satisfying life then this article is for you, well I am not left out too.
The mind power is composed of your attention, your mental images and thoughts.
The flow of thoughts is so powerful enough to keep you isolated from the rest of the world.
Our thoughts affects our body and mind.
If you have fearful thoughts, you become fearful. Imagine being scared of the dark, because you always think dark places breeds evil. Then suddenly as you are watching your favorite show, the light goes off and it all becomes dark, there is instantly a reaction from your brain and fear gets the best of you.
If you want to change bad thoughts, it can only be possible by thinking of the good ones.
You are always a thought away to the life you desire.
How can we take charge in order to have a healthy mind and satisfying life.
• Self awareness : You must consciously know the thoughts that runs through your mind that can be crazy to do right, it’s like every minute you are thinking of your thought. So let me help you a little.
Let your feelings direct you. Feelings are great pointers to what our thoughts are.
So ask yourself , what am I thinking of right now?
How does it make me feel ?
Dispel the bad thoughts, embrace the good ones.
•Live a life of gratitude : One of the keys to being happy and building an healthy mind is relishing on all the things you have. Gratitude are like soul cleansers.
Do a list of what you are grateful for in your life, think upon the things you have, even the things you feel are little.
I am grateful that I can see the beautiful skies and my own beautiful face in the mirror.
I am grateful my legs can walk
I am grateful that I have finally finished reading the book I bought like 6 months back, there is so much to be grateful for.
The crippling part is, we spend more time on what we don’t have that others have and that leaves us unhappy.
Today stop and think of all the things and people that are yours and be stay grateful, and do that always.
•Practice Meditation : For a talk active woman like me recommending meditation, hmmm, you must know it did a good number on me.
Great people meditate. You will never know what 3-10 minute of solitude and silence daily can do for you until you try it. You will have an amazing experience.
•Feed well : if I say you should eat from the dustbin now, you will say that is very low of me right?. So if you can be so picky on what you eat and from where it comes, why can’t you do the same for your mind. Sieve what you feed your mind.
There are thoughts that are trashy and smelly, like those ones that tell you , you can’t be whoever you wish to or that tells you , you can’t live a healthy life, you can’t meet up with others, like it’s a competition now. Dispel them.
Be picky with what you feed your mind and don’t forget that includes the books you read, what you watch, what you hear, what you see ,the friends you keep etc.
•Purposeful living : One of the ways to change your mindset is living purposefully. Think upon why you are here, ruminate on what you are to do, look into all the amazing skills and talents God has blessed you with,work on them, use them to help yourself and others.
10 days, Blissful moments.
Do this for yourself, for 10 days write 10 things you love about yourself and read aloud to yourself on the 10th day.
Your mind does not control you, you are the one that holds the rein of action, so act like the one in charge.
You deserve to be happy, I want you to be happy, but you are in charge of your happiness so make a wise choice.
I recommend ” The Secret” by Rhonda Bryne, it was a life changing book for me. You would love it.
