There are so many ways when the uncontrolled mind looks like the mind of a five year old child who wants to run on the city streets and only to sit still for a couple of seconds before jumping again.
If we allow our brain to constantly run one mile in a minute without interjecting, the only result will be madness and you will realize that your mind has slowly turned into a prison.
However, it is possible to free your mind. At the beginning it might seem impossible. People are adaptable creatures, and it is easy for us to pick up new habits as the time goes by. This way our brain can become rewired because there is a new operating system and its name is chaos. If you want to create a peaceful mind, it is important to go back to your original nature of balance and harmony. This might sound hard to achieve, but we will present you some techniques that will help you.
1. Your focus should be on the positive aspects from yourself and your life.
Shortly said, we are responsible for the confusion and mass disorder that we observe around us every day using our thoughts. It is we who have allowed negative thinking to prevail for so long and this means the physical world is just the result of our thinking. If we simply shift the focus on what makes us happy, we can begin to think positively. As a result, we will feel more peaceful because we won’t have negative thought.
You should remember that energy flows where the attention goes. Peace can be achieved by creating awareness behind our thoughts.
2. Say and think peaceful words every day during the day and say them to yourself
At this moment pay attention to your brain and see what thoughts are inside. It is very likely that the bigger part of the thoughts is centered about your to-do list for the next day, degrading thoughts about yourself or other negative thought. You should not feel bad, because when we are surrounded by so much negativity it is hard to stay positive and have a positive mindset. However, it is possible to counter the negative thought by using peaceful and simple words.
When you feel anxious you should start saying these calming words in and repeat them in your mind:
Calm, Tranquil, Peaceful, Love, Serenity, Light, Breeze, Relaxing, Beach. The words Beach and Breeze describe scenery and that will help you to feel peaceful. Words have power and meaning and that is why you should use them when you are stressed out.
Meditation can stop the flow of thoughts that are constantly bombarding your consciousness and create a space full of peace and stillness. It is not needed to turn off the brain in order to meditate, and a lot of people feel that their thoughts are slowed down and they are able to calm themselves a lot easier with closed eyes and controlled breaths. Meditation will bring awareness in your body, and it will be easier for you to cope with your challenges.
You should start with meditation if you want to bring more peace in your life and mind. Another option would be to
sit in quiet and focus on your breath for at least 10 minutes every day. This way you will discover that it is easy to achieve a peaceful mindset.
4. Live in the moment
Forget about all tasks that you have to do tomorrow after work, the uncertainty of your future or the bills you have to pay. When these thoughts run in your brain you will only cause a great disease inside your body and this can even lead to depression, anxiety, chronic stress, and different severe problems. In most cases anxiety is the result of living in a time which is not the present. So, when you feel your thoughts drag you in the past or future just try and come back to the present.
5. Leave the city and reconnect with nature.
It does not mean that you have to move forever. It could mean that you use your lunch break in the nearby park, or just go on a vacation and get away from the everyday stress. You should try and reconnect with nature and remember that nature does not have struggles with life and we do not have to do that either. You should not allow to be caught up with the unimportant matters of the material world as you will not be able to find peace in possessions.
Peace can be found in our hearts, but Mother Earth is able to help you and give you solace from the strains of the modern society.
Meditation and its benefits
You should begin with meditation as it has amazing calming effects. It can help you to recharge yourself and give you more energy during the day. It will increase the blood flow in the brain. People who meditate need less sleep and it also stops the aging of the brain as well.
Meditation has great benefits and you should start by taking something to sit on and a timer. It is important to sit with a straight back and have an upright posture. You can keep your eyes closed or opened, it depends on you.
The biggest question when it comes to meditation is what to do.
You should get comfortable and try to focus better. Pay attention to your breath because this is what meditation is about. Focus entirely on your breath and try not to think about anything which is the hardest part. You should not analyze your breath and when your mind wanders bring the attention back. At the beginning it might be hard, and even people who meditate for long time sometimes struggle with it, but in the end you will achieve this.
Meditation is great and has amazing benefits and once you try it, you will be able to achieve peace and greatness.
