Headspace | Meditation | Changing Perspective


Training the mind is often quite
different to how people imagined it to be. Maybe they have an idea it’s about
stopping thoughts or eliminating feelings. But the reality is a bit different. An easy way to think of it is to imagine yourself sitting on the side of a busy road. The passing cars representing thoughts and feelings. All you have to do is just sit there and watch the cars. Sounds easy, right? But what usually happens is that we feel a bit unsettled by the movement of the traffic. So we run out into the road and try to stop the cars. Or maybe even chase after a few. Forgetting that the idea was to just sit here. And of course, all of this running around only adds to the feeling of restlessness in the mind. So training the mind is about changing our relationship with the passing thoughts and feelings. Learning how to view them with a little more perspective. And when we do this, we naturally find a place of calm. Will we sometimes forget the idea of the exercise and become distracted? Of course we will. But as soon as we remember, here we are. Back on the side of the road again, just watching the traffic go by. Perfectly at ease in both body and mind.

    sharing this to my boyfriend. He can't stop his mind. I had to do that years ago when I was in college, meditation was my answer. We can tame the mind, we can be the one in control! Meditation is the way.

    or do somthing you like to do.
    rather site alone beside the road and try to be calm if there is someone with you than traffic not even bother.

  82. Rant Therapist Posted on April 13, 2019 at 1:42 am

    I'm starting to become convinced that most of these anxiety disorders, panic attacks, and even most cases of depression are related to childhood trauma, the way you were raised, being around negative people or narcissistic people/parents/friends/coworkers/siblings.

    Because stress carries a real weight, and it builds up. And we seem to be energy beings with energy leaking out of us around certain environments and people. That's why when you talk to someone who's a constant nagger, for example, you feel almost exhausted after being around them for a few hours. It's like you took on their energy, or they dumped theirs on you.

    And you didn't imagine that and feel that way because you've imagined it so. You feel that way because that's the way that kind of person made you feel. And this can be a know-it-all, a nagger, a narcissist, an angry person, a resentful person, a person who holds grudges for years or decades, or any combination of those things, and so on.

    So yes, they are literally dumping their negativity on you. That's exactly what happened. Guard yourself, your heart and your soul against those kinds of people, because they are everywhere, among your coworkers, friends, family. But the most difficult is cutting off certain family members or limiting the contact to the absolute minimum, which is so hard to do, but in many cases it is absolutely necessary. Because living life full of negativity and emotional abuse, and no one deserves emotional abuse, is no way to live.
