How To Calm Your Mind From Stress
Our mind is so powerful and yet so little control we had of it, that most of our unfounded fears and stress originate from it. If you doubt this, the next time when you feel stressed about something, just slow your thoughts down and gently inspect the trail of your thoughts. You would find that it was often holding on to something in the past, which you can totally do nothing of, or it is worrying about some events in the future, which may or may not happen.
The Anxious Mind
Stressful feelings can manifest in the form of anxiety, worries, fear, and doubts which can always paralyze our mind to the point of depression, in serious cases. It often starts with a problem and then over-thinking which precedes other negative thoughts.
These thoughts, when inspected closely, are tricks that our mind are playing. Often we are not aware of the gradual slide in the state of our mind to a negative slump of emotions. And when it’s finally down in the drain, we feel a heavy mind, filled with doubts and worries, that basically kills off all our hopes and dreams that seem so possible before.
It is very important, to bring us out of this mental slump as soon as we can. One negative thought will lead to another. From slight anxiety, you soon become worried and depressed before you know it.
The mind is always in a state of change. If you believe in the Law of Attraction, the energy that you have will attract similar energy. Ever wonder why one mishap happens after another? That’s because you are allowing yourself to be in this negative state where Murphy’s Law thrives.
Calming of the Mind
Even the most positive of us do suffer from a spell of negative thoughts and emotions from time to time. The trick is how to stop the slide and bring back calmness to our mind. Here are 3 ways that work.
1. Listing down solutions
One way that could ease our mind is to think of the solutions and worst case that could happen. We also list down contingency plans. While this method works some of the time, it does not address the root cause, it is just scraping the surface.
2. Positive Affirmation
Another way to break the pattern of negative thoughts is to recite positive affirmations. This would force a change to the state of the mind and could be quite effective if repeated over time.
I would personally recommend meditation as the best solution in calming the mind. Through meditation, not only we achieve the goal of calming of our mind but also provide a deeper understanding as to how our mind works.
Seek Peace Within
The practice of meditation is often done with the guidance of an experienced guru. However, in most cities, we are either too busy with our lifestyle or meditation gurus are not easily available. In the absence of meditation gurus, I would say a guided form of meditation through audio will be the best thing.
I’ve tried traditional meditation method and I’ve also tried an energy healing session with a guided audio session. Right now I’m looking into Clear-Mind™ meditation, which combined guided meditation, energy clearing and enhanced with Unichord™ a scientifically proven technology that generates frequencies which stimulate your energy system.
They actually have a short demo of Clear-Mind™ in audio which I have personally experienced. It does calm down the mind and slows down the restless stray thoughts in less than 5 minutes. I’ve written a dedicated review here of Clear-Mind™ for a clearer picture of how it helps to calm my mind.
Have you tried Clear-Mind™? Please share your experience with me.
