Meditation to the Rescue
Learning to quiet our mind and slow down our thoughts is one of the most beneficial things we can do. We talked about monitoring thoughts in another article, simply observing them and writing them down in a journal. Another way you can slow down the “rat on the wheel” in the head is through daily meditations.
If you are new to meditating, it’s a good idea to understand a little on how meditation works.
You have your conscious mind that does the daily chores like setting goals and figuring out how to achieve them. It processes, calculates and jumps from one thought to the other. It does all this and can only hold on to so much information at any given time.
The subconscious mind, on the other hand, remembers an unlimited amount of information over our entire lifetime. It’s connected to the conscious mind through the five senses and can carry out the tasks of the conscious mind. It first has to receive the instructions from the conscious mind. This is where subliminal suggestions come in to play through meditation and the developing of strong neural pathways.
Meditation quiets the mind and promotes relaxation.
When you focus on your breath and calm the mind you tend to feel more at peace and not worried about the next thing on your To Do list. In the beginning, it may be good for some individuals to have a guided meditation. At this state, when you can relax, surrender, calm the mind and be, is where the magic begins. It doesn’t happen the first time. This is a practice you will want to include in your daily routine. You also do not have to meditate for hours and hours a day for it to be effective. Really, who has hours and hours to do this right. A simple 15 to 20-minute meditation in the morning will help you focus and start your day our right.
One of the biggest mistakes, well maybe it’s not a mistake, maybe downfall is a better word, that I made in the beginning and most others do to, is not being consistent. Like I said above, this is not a onetime thing. This is a daily routine you want to adopt, just like brushing your teeth. Even if you must get up 20 minutes earlier to implement this, I HIGHLY suggest you do and commit to a 90-day period. Write it down on your calendar every day when you meditate and find an accountability partner!
