To fully access who and what we truly are, it is necessary for us to calm our minds so that our authentic Self can be heard. Self-inquiry, management of thought and meditation are all tools that can help you achieve a calm mind and access a place of peace and calm that contains within it the power of creation.
The first step in beginning to calm the mind is to understand that we have two minds – the thinking or rational mind and the creative, intuitive mind. For many years, particularly in the west, we have overlooked the importance of intuition, and under-exploited the potential that the intuitive mind has to contribute in areas as diverse as decision making, team work, entrepreneurship, ethics and leadership.
We are all creative; we just have to let ourselves be. To access this essential part of being we must begin to trust our intuition. But before we can do that, we have to eliminate that which blocks our creativity – the “mental trash” we unknowingly carry around with us in our minds that keep us locked into old patterns of thought and behavior.
Discover how to release yourself from negative thoughts, and understand that the only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with reality. Learn to breaking down these thoughts, and move further toward a calm mind and intuitive approach to life.
The single most important step you can take in developing a calm mind is to embrace a daily meditation practice. This practice will help you reach a level of expanded consciousness that promotes relaxation, builds internal energy or life force and develops a life filled with compassion, love, patience, generosity, and forgiveness.
