How To Get Out Of Your Head
Recently, I have been consumed with thoughts. Sometimes it just over powers me even in meditation or a yoga class. It's the outside world that consumes me at times. It might be Instagram or Facebook that takes over my day or feeling inadequate in all areas of my life, or hearing about another friend who is pregnant.
It can take over me to the point of feeling frozen. I am trying to work. But, nothing happens. I am trying to meditate, but stupid thoughts keep entering my mind. I am trying to focus on creating more content for my students, but nothing is flowing. Finally, I go outside, sit in the shade for a moment and look out into the distance. I place one hand on my heart and one hand on my belly and I immediately feel the energy through my hands calm me. There is a soft voice,
"Be still. This is where you are supposed to be right now. Once you know this all else will fall into place."
Literally this took one minute. I understood what my intuition was telling me. That feeling when you come back to your self. All the outside world goes away and you can just feel you. It's being aware.
It was not that easy though. I still needed more. I still felt agitated from my thoughts. I went for a walk. There, I released tension. I followed my intuition and just connected with myself. No phone, no music. I focused on my breath and my movement. I asked myself what was bothering me. I realized just how much I can have over my thoughts. I choose to absorb what I absorb. I choose to consume the outside world in a way that can harm my nervous system.
That day I chose myself. I chose to trust what my intuition was saying. That I have everything I need inside me to heal and conquer. All else is a distraction.
That day I awakened something that has been living inside me since my first breath. I will try to vibrate at this level each day. But, I know each day will be a challenge.
"What a liberation to realize that the “voice in my head” is not who I am. Who am I then? The one who sees that." ~ Eckhart Tolle
