The cure for a busy mind

Everyone has about the same amount of thoughts in a day; somewhere around 65 000 of them. Yet, some people feel constantly overwhelmed by their monkey mind and a sense of no control over what's going on in there. What if the difference is only the quality of thought, not the amount? 

If your thoughts are mostly positive, constructive and light you probably don't experience the same overwhelm as if they're negative, destructive and dark, right? If this is the case, how could we lean more towards the lighter thoughts? 

I think meditation is one of the best tools there is for this kind of work. By regular meditation you train your mind to observe what's going on instead of getting kidnapped by them constantly. When you first observe you can also train to make conscious decisions on what kinds of thoughts to follow and which ones to let go of. 

What do you think? Does this reasoning make sense to you?

I write to reciprocate the flow

I've been blogging for six years now. Patiently, playfully, persistently. Sometimes it's been everyday, sometimes a couple of times a week and since a few years three posts a week. Writing, writing, writing. 

If you've been following me for a while you know that the topics vary but it's mostly sharing recent lessons from my own life or just plain reflections. From time to time I'm behind in schedule and in those instances I feel a bit stressed about it but for the most part it's pure pleasure and it's just flow. I never read the posts after I've written them, I just let them go as they are. (So sorry for any misspellings or weird phrases)

I write to understand myself. I write to understand the world. I write because that's what I do. I write to reciprocate the flow of everything coming to me; inspiration, events, thoughts and ideas. I don't really know how not to write. 

However, on my quest for living in alignment and following flow and guidance I've decided to not be so strict with myself on the three posts a week thing. I don't want to live my life out of should and I don't want to force anything in my business. Maybe the schedule will stay the same, maybe it'll shift from week to week. I don't know yet, that's sort of the point. 

Anyhow, just wanted to let you in on my thoughts around this. I would love to hear yours! What do you like about the blog? What would you want to see more or less of? Is the schedule important to you? 

Til next time!
With all my love,

What if every thought you think would come true?

I truly believe in the law of attraction and I think science is catching up too. Whatever we focus on grows. It's all energy. We attract what we are, not what we think. And still, we are what we repeatedly do. We do what we repeatedly think. Are you aware of the climate in your own mind? 

What if every thought you think would come true? Would you like the outcome? 

We have around 65 000 thoughts a day and up to 95% of them are the same as yesterday. Most of them are autopilot thoughts and thus low in energy. What we focus on grows. What we don't focus on, like autopilot thoughts, are just, eah. So, just start noticing where your energy goes when you think. What lights you up? What makes you mad? What frustrates you? What excites you? Do you want all of that or do you want to start redirecting some of your high energy thoughts to that which you actually do want manifested in your life? 

Just some food for thought. I'm gonna watch my thoughts today, and refocus when I need to. 

With all my love,
