Yesterday I was weeding in my back yard and I had a realization. Weeding the yard is so much easier than weeding out our thoughts. Weeding out unwanted thoughts needs tools. What are your tools for weeding out ineffective thoughts? What about ones that actually take you down? Do you have different tools for each of these?
I’m not into perfect tools I’m into effective ones. Are yours effective?
I want to share some of my favorite tools.
The first one is just to clear your head so you can calm down the chatter or lists, or all the peoples demands.
Greetings for a clear mind
Sitting straight, shake the hands on both sides of the head, close to the ears. Keep the wrists loose and the fingers semi tight. For added benefit, close the eyes and focus in the center of brows.
Brain balancer; helps release unwanted conversations and obsessive thoughts.
This will not totally change the habitual thoughts but it breaks the pattern in a fun and energetic way that usually has you wanting to come back for more.
I am going to give you another one that is great for breaking patterns. Everything we do is based on our current subconscious patterns and our perceptions come from those patterns. The great news is everything is energy, which means shifting our energy can change our focus, our perceptions, and our mental overload. This one can be done anywhere.
Well almost anywhere better to do in a bathroom, your office, a car but can be done subtlety anywhere. Great to ward off the beginnings of anxiety attacks.
Four Part Breath: Miracle Breath
Break up with overwhelming feelings
Blow your stress away
Sitting up straight, inhale through the mouth, filling your lungs in four equal parts—starting the breath as low as possible in the abdomen. Exhale through the mouth in four equal parts, from the upper chest down. If you feel relaxed you can do this exercise breathing through the nose. Repeat the cycle.
Instantly reduces stress, so you may see a situation more objectively. Helps dissolve overwhelming feelings.
With your energy change this is the time to create thoughts backed up by actions that serve you. Do you know when you need to take a break? Do you take it then? Even if it is a bathroom break. Do you know when you really need to eat and what? Do you only eat when hungry or whenever things are available? Let your observer observe you and see if you are serving the totality of you.
Many more available techniques on my sites in the flip charts, which can sit on your desk and videos to support you on youtube at the energy guru’s site.
Blessings and May these serve you
