Do you want to control your mind?

Mind is the most wondering creation in this universe

Like it is said “Don’t judge book by its cover”, Same ways, don’t judge this blog by its title. 😊

I am not teaching any technique to control your mind. Neither I want you to control your mind, rather I would like to keep it liberal than controlling.

Are you confused? Don’t be! When I say, Don’t control your mind, you can’t control it whatever you do. Our mind is designed to control our body system, each and every part of body is controlled by our mind, isn’t it? Ok! Stretching this thing will make you bored and confused. So here is what I really meant.

Control your Thoughts/Emotions instead of controlling Mind & keep mind liberal to control your body activities.

Have you ever lost some of your favorite things (it was broken or taken by someone)? How did you feel? I know it is not a very pleasant feeling. Are you always lost in unpleasant thoughts? I believe everyone at some point of time may be. Do you feel, you don’t have a reason to Live because of some unpleasant thing happened in your Life? Wait! Don’t be sad. Life is the most precious thing ever created. Just being sad because of some bad thoughts is worth.

Below are some ways to control your thoughts/emotions:

Smile

There is something great about smiling. It takes out negative thoughts out of your mind, it is never easy to smile, when you are going through unpleasant emotions & physiologically impossible to have bad feelings if you are smiling?

You need to master this to overcome any bad thoughts or control your thoughts. Believe me! Smile is best medicine. Just try smiling in any situation. Smile intoxicates your body from bad thoughts/unpleasant emotions.

When you wake up, if you feel stressed/angry/sad, smile at yourself in the mirror. Do this every morning(even if you are not feeling low). This will help in keeping your bad thoughts/emotions away.

Anytime you feel bad, just smile. Do it, even when you don’t want to do it. It will control your thoughts/emotions (bad ones! No one would like to control good emotions/thoughts 😉 )

Meditation

Yes! I know, you are already aware of this. You must have heard about this a lot. Do you exactly know what Meditation does?

Meditation will take your focus away from the unpleasant emotions and in turn make you take control of them. It will shift your focus and it doesn’t create any denial.

Mastering shift of focus is main task in meditation. If you insist on being what you are, you can always return to what you were after you are done meditating. It is not necessary to change, unless you are not happy from inside.

Meditation

Do what makes you happy

No one on this earth is going to be sad, when they are doing the things which makes them happy. Engage yourself in the activities, which makes you feel good. You will not get into bad thoughts.

Attraction

Attraction

Our thoughts, emotions and feelings act as a powerful magnet, attracting circumstances into our lives. Whether these circumstances are positive or negative, is completely dependent on how we think!

Law of Attraction

Simply stated, the Law of Attraction says that we attract into our lives, that upon which we place our dominant thoughts. In other words, if we focus predominantly on abundance, solutions and positive outcomes then that is exactly what we will attract back into our lives. Nice!

There is a dangerous flip side to this law however – if we focus on lack, problems and negative outcomes, then that is exactly what we will attract.

Attraction

“We become what we think about most of the time!”

This ‘secret’ aligns perfectly with the Law of Attraction and acts as a constant reminder that we must learn to control our thoughts. Truthfully, our own thoughts are the only things in life over which we have complete control. The challenge is to keep them in control and not let them run rampant with negativity.

For an example of the power of the Law of Attraction, you need look no further than your own life. Have you ever had one of those days, where everything seems to go wrong? From the cold shower to the burnt toast to the traffic ticket on the way to the office, to the grouchy boss, to the difficult customer, we have all experienced those days. It all starts with the way we think. Our thought patterns attract the first negative experience. This experience then puts us in a negative frame of mind which works to attract further “bad” situations. The more we focus on the “bad day” we are having, the worse things get!

The solution is to change our frame of reference. Take the negative emotions and change them to be either positive or at least neutral. Look for the lesson in every situation. Learning to laugh at ourselves is another great way to change our reference point. If we break the cycle of negativity, things will begin to turn around almost immediately.

What You Can Do

There are two things that you can start doing immediately that will help you to harness the awesome power of the Law of Attraction:

1. Ask yourself the question: “Do I focus on Lack or Abundance (or stated another way, ‘Am I problem-focused or solution-focused”)? If you answered, ‘Lack / Problems’ then set out to immediately change your frame of reference. Change your habits and thought patterns to be more positive and solution-focused.

2. Take full responsibility for whatever is happening in your life, be it good or bad. You have attracted the good as well as the bad, so taking responsibility will allow you to make the choice to change your thinking. Positive thinking on it’s own will not solve all of your problems, however it is one of a series of things that we all have the power to implement which will get us on the path to leading the life we want.

Thoughts

New thoughts can come from taking a new perspective on things. One way to do that is to challenge the assumptions that exist. For example, is love really a feeling of desire or attachment? This is a common assumption, but what if we challenge this?

New Thoughts on Love

Desire and attachment can be strong feelings, and they are often called love in certain contexts. However, attachment can be for bad reasons too, right? Desire too can come from less than noble places. What is an alternative definition of love?

How about a recognition of value? Seeing the inherent value in a person, like the beauty you see in a painting or hear in a melody. You do not need to be attached or even desirous of beauty to enjoy it. You just have to recognize it. The enjoyment that you take in another’s existence then could be a definition of love. At least the emotion.

Thoughts

Love is more than an emotion though. How much love does a mother have for her children if she feels fond towards them, but doesn’t feed them? Love in this context has to include action, doesn’t it?

This points up the real problem with defining concepts like love. There are seven or eight or perhaps a hundred things we want to communicate. They are each different, yet we have just one word for them. Maybe rather than re-defining love we need to create a dozen new words. Now there’s an area for some new thoughts.

Random New Thoughts

Another way to have new thoughts is to just look for new ideas to replace old ones. Then you expand on the new idea, to see what value you might find in it. Here are some examples of new thoughts, without expanding on them (help yourself).

Thoughts

– Why do we encourage uniformed people to vote? Maybe it’s better to encourage people NOT to vote, unless they are willing to educate themselves on the issues.

– Is multi-tasking really a sign of efficiency? Maybe the fact that we need to be so busy just to get what we want shows that our actions aren’t effective enough.

– Why can’t we pay less for a surgeon who kills more people on the operating table? Why not recognize that there are better and worse doctors, have that information available, and pay accordingly?

– How about wonder instead of faith? Faith is just believing without reason. Wonder is to marvel at the world and accept that we don’t have reasons or explanations for everything. Finally, what if our level of creativity, and ability to have new thoughts isn’t just something that is set at birth. What if it is a systematic process, one that may not be recognized by those who use it, but can be identified and copied? All of us can train ourselves to have creative new thoughts.
