I think by nature I am an anxious person....or maybe it just happened slowly over time?? I’m not sure...
Either way it took a toll on me.
If left to its own devices, my brain automatically jumps to the worst conclusion when anything happens.
When I wrote about mind control the other day, this was one of the things I was talking about. One day I decided enough was enough and I didn’t want to think this way any more. I’d like to say I just stopped, but that would be a lie.
It’s something I have to work at ALL THE TIME.
Meditation helps me to (1) be conscious of these thoughts and (2) take a breath and change them. Now it’s not that the anxious thoughts never come, it’s when they do I don’t dwell on them. They come and I consciously decide to think differently.
I cannot tell you how much this has helped.
I used to think this was just how I thought. It’s not. It was how I was CHOOSING to think....only before it was an unconscious decision. Now that it is conscious, I can choose differently.
And it has made all the difference.
