Escape Your Mind and Find Freedom Outside of Yourself

Many people are constantly in their head. Of course, some of these people are writers so they’re always in their head because it’s part of their job.

For those of you who are not writers, being a prisoner of your mind may slowly drive you and the people around you insane! Freedom can be yours if you put your mind to it.

The worst “mind-crime” committed by people is negative self-talk. Negative chatter not only affects you, but everyone around you. This can include someone in a country far away such as Hungary. If you do not believe this to be true, just take a stroll through Barnes and Noble or any other bookstore. The New Age, Spirituality, and or Science sections of book stores are packed with books on “mind control.” Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” is very popular. Other books include Sandra Anne Taylor’s “Quantum Success.”

8 Ways to Escape Your Mind

  1. Meditate. A great way to re-center yourself.
  2. Yoga. Stretch the mind and body to align with your spirit.
  3. Deep breathing exercises. Releases the tension within your body.
  4. Listening to music. Whether you listen to metal, rock, jazz, pop, or indie, music will soothe your soul.
  5. Painting, drawing, or some other art project. Studies have shown that being creative enriches the brain.
  6. Go for a walk. A low impact exercise that will do your mind and body good.
  7. Let go. If you’re trying to force circumstances in your life such as relationships and careers, the best way is to detach and let go. If you want quick results, detachment is key.
  8. Journal. Release your thoughts onto paper in the morning or at night. A technique used by shamans is to write your thoughts on paper and then burn the paper. If you choose to do this, please be careful. You do not want Smokey the Bear showing up!

The mind is a powerful tool. Look at how far we’ve come with technologies, health care, and space exploration. If these are not indicators of how powerful the mind can be, then what is?

Free yourself from the trappings of your mind today and tomorrow your future will be brighter. Whether or not you believe in a collective consciousness, tune into the radio or watch television. The media constantly reports on the fears Americans have about America’s economic situation and now these fears have spread around the world.

Review the headlines of your local newspapers. If you’re still not convinced that the mind is a powerful instrument, take a look at your own life and “mind your thoughts” for a week or two. See what manifests in your life. You may or may not be pleasantly surprised!

Are you a victim of your own mind or someone else’s? What are you doing to break free?
