Lets learn how to quiet the mind
We start with 15 to 20 seconds. If you don’t know what that is see how-to-stop-the-negative-thoughts Then over a period of time we move up to being able to re-live lots of different good memories in our mind one after another until we can do this for at least 15 minutes.
Now this maybe a little tricky to begin with especially if you have lots of stuff in your mind. So just gradually increase the time until you are at 15 minutes. One thing that works great is to write down 15 good memories and then re-live them one by one. It also helps if you can find a place that is quiet and you won’t be disturbed.
Pay attention to everything
Notice all the details of your memory, including how you felt, what you or anyone in your memory was wearing. The noises that were present and so on. You will notice that by doing this it becomes a lot easier and you are able to hold the memories longer. You only need to do 15 minutes once a day.
Let’s learn how to quiet the mind
Now when you have been doing this for a little while you will start to notice that sometimes there is a brief silence in your mind. This is what we are after. When you are ready , go inside your mind and see if you can just have silence. Don’t force it, just let it happen. If you can’t do it yet , that is okay. Just keep practicing and when you are ready it will happen. That is how to quiet the mind. You will have no voices at all, just silence.
Just keep practicing 15 to 20 seconds as often as you can think to do it and do 15 minutes once a day. When you can do this easily, you will know how to quiet the mind.
The purpose of learning how to quiet the mind
The purpose is so you will be able to have control over your mind and be able direct your thoughts to what you want to accomplish. When there is all kinds of thoughts going on in there it is hard to be able to direct our own thinking as these thoughts will keep popping in and lead us to thinking about something else.
Unless we can make our goal our main focus we will not get far in accomplishing it. The thoughts that are already going on in our minds daily will leave no room for the thoughts we want to be there.
So when we try to manifest something, those thoughts keep coming back and we can not keep our thoughts where we want them to be.
In his book Creating A Bug Free Mind , Andy Shaw teaches us how our thoughts create our life and by getting control of our thoughts we have taken the first step towards creating the life we want. He goes on to teach us how to re-program our minds so that anyone can have whatever they want in their life.
