Stop Thinking

Did you know that on average you think about 100,000 thoughts every day and most of them are negative, stressful self-limiting and self destructive?Learn how to watch your thoughts and replace the negative ones with uplifting positive thoughts. This way you can stop your thinking.

The key to making good decisions and creating a happier life is in your hands.
You will discover that happiness is a choice.

If at first this exercise doesn't quiet your busy mind and stop thinking, don't give up.
Like mastering a new skill, it takes practice - the more you use it the more skilled you become.
Keep at it! Your mind storm will calm down and your body will melt into a peaceful relaxation.

Watch your thoughts

Take a few deep easy breaths, allow your awareness to come into the present moment and feel your entire body relax, then gently close your eyes.
For about 1 minute, stay alert while you easily watch thoughts flowing through your mind. Just watch them and let them go.
Don't strain, don't try, just let go and relax.
Now gently open your eyes.

  • Did you notice thoughts moving through your mind?
  • What else did you notice? Did the busy mind chatter slow down?
  • Were there lots of thoughts or a few thoughts?

Please continue.

Count your thoughts   

Now you will count your thoughts for a couple of minutes. For example, if you notice the sound of a bird singing outside, count that as thought #1.
If you notice a sensation in your body, count that as thought #2.
If you have a thought like, Oh there's a bird singing, should I count that? Count that as thought #3.
Thought #4 might be, I wonder if 2 minutes has passed yet. Just notice it, let it go, and keep counting.
And so on, count as many thoughts as you notice.
Now gently close your eyes. Relax and just watch the thoughts moving through your mind.
Then easily, effortlessly begin to count each thought that comes into your awareness.
Keep alert during this exercise.
Continue this for about 2 minutes, then gently and easily open your eyes.
  • How many thoughts did you count?  
  • Were there five? Great!
  • Were there twenty? Great! It doesn't matter how many thoughts you had.
  • Did you find it easy to count them?
  • What else did you notice during the exercise?
Repeat the exercise of counting if you wish. Remain alert and observe the movement in your mind.
  • Now, what did you notice that time?
  • How many thoughts did you count?
  • Did the mind chatter begin to slow down?
  • Did you notice where the thoughts came from?
  • Where did they go?
Stay alert as you watch your thoughts - without counting this time
    Once again, gently close your eyes and watch the thoughts moving through your mind. Do not count. Just watch. Stay alert. Continue for about 2 minutes, and then open your eyes.
      • Did your thoughts begin to slow down?
      • Where did they come from?
      • Where did they go?
      • Did you find yourself getting caught up in a stream of thoughts that went off into a story?
      • And then what happened?
      • Did you notice a space between your thoughts? A short space? A long space? Great!

Cultivate the gap…

Once you calm your busy mind down, and you notice gaps between the thoughts you will sense the stillness deep within you.

It is the stillness beyond your busy mind that you will cultivate and expand through regular practice of meditation.

Some folks claim that their busy mind does not always calm down, yet they have mastered the ability to move beyond their busy mind to experience the stillness nevertheless.

The most profound benefit of meditation is your ability to sustain your connection with Source for the ever-expanding experience of peace and joy.

The key to expansion is to just let go and allow whatever happens to happen without controlling, without straining, without trying.

A universe of quiet unbounded peace and joy will open up to you. It has always been there and it will always be there whenever you allow your awareness to be there.
