“Why does it always happen to me?”
“What have I done to deserve this?”
“I’m not a deserving candidate.”
Doesn’t this remind you of something?
The statements you just read above are quite common to hear, aren’t they? But, where have you heard them?
Well, then just ask yourself. You might either end up scratching your head in a confused state as to where these words last hit your ears or you might have guessed it right. Who said this to you?
Well then, Surprise!
It was me, your mind! You might not know this but I love criticising you. The way you sit, stand and stroll..Ugh! You’re just so disgusting I tell you. Remember, yesterday’s fashion show on the television? The models were so gorgeous! The way they walked on the ramp, that’s what you call attitude! You really need to work on this otherwise you might end up looking slouchy and uncharismatic.
Now, Did you find that extremely irritating?
Were you totally flabbergasted with the way the mind conversed?
No, it’s not the first time you’re hearing (or should I rather say- READING) this conversation. OUR MINDS CAN EITHER BE OUR SERVANTS OR OUR MASTERS. If servant, they can be the most loyal and soothing ones, but when they play the role of a master, they will never feel shy to show you their villainy. Never.
Then how will I get to acknowledge whether my mind is a loyal servant or the cruel master?
It’s very simple. Are your thoughts in control of you or are you (unknowingly) being controlled by your own thoughts?
If the former is what you choose then there’s no need to worry my friend, you are in a perfect state of health. Keep rocking and don’t let the mind overrule you!
If the latter is what fits to your situation- then there’s a possibility that you’re dealing with a cruel master-a turbulent mind. In that case, you might even suffer from daily mood swings and unhappiness.
But, as you know-there’s a solution to every problem!
I would highly recommend you to start your mornings with meditation. To be more exact- Gibberish Meditation will work wonders specially for people who have a tendency to overthink.
It’s an extremely easy (and FUN!) way to calm your mind and rule over it again! You can get to know about this meditation on the Internet (Believe me, I myself am an avid practicer of this meditation and it has helped me a great deal in my battle with low self esteem and depression).
Not to forget to mention, if you begin with this meditation, you need to then continue it for solid 21 days. You’ll soon see as well as feel the amazing results. Your happiness, vibrancy and optimism will lead your way!
P.S- want it to be more effective? Do it with an empty stomach!
May Happiness shine your way!
