My Computer Told Me To Do IT!

Could you imagine if we shifted our thinking and reality by accepting our brain simply as a machine? A simple machine that computes everything based on your past experiences and old ways of thinking. Think about this for a second what if we have the power to reprogram that machine. I know it sounds like a science fiction movie, however the reality is that everything we think and believe that disrupts our lives and feeds us negative ideas we have the power to replace that with productive and positive thoughts and actions.

The average person thinks between 50,000-70,000 thoughts per day. These thoughts range from the mundane — I need to buy milk, to the significant — I love you, to the self-destructive — I’m not good enough. In the moment, our thinking seems logical. But when we examine long patterns of brain activity, it’s clear that thoughts can be unstable and often arbitrary, shifting depending on context and contradicting our better instincts. Yet humans usually form our personal identities around the things we think. The result is a scattered sense of self that drifts from one direction to another.

But you are not our thoughts. We are the consciousness (the ocean) from which your thoughts (the waves) arise. The human capacity to think (while great in comparison to other living creatures) is incredibly susceptible to error. Cognitive bias, false assumptions, misinformation, Ego and limited beliefs are just a few patterns of unhealthy thought that interfere with our judgement.

“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind – you are the one who hears it.” Michael A. SingerThe Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself. Just because we hear it and think it doesn’t mean we are that what we think.

In his book Untethered Soul, Michael A. Singer, talks about becoming the observer of our lives and not feeding into the fear and scarcity. When we become the observer our reality shifts and we are able to be more detached from what terrifies us. Therefor we can become less reactive and act on our impulses. This time laps helps us make healthier decisions. Below tips that we can put into action so that we have more control over our thoughts, and that mean we get to be take our first baby steps into living healthier and happier lives.

1) Don’t identify with mind. Be the observer.

Instead of reacting to everything that you think, become an unbiased observer of your thoughts. When bad thoughts arise, say, “It’s interesting that I think that.” When good thoughts arise, say, “It’s interesting that I think that.” As an unbiased observer of your thoughts, you remain in control and non-reactionary. Don’t identify with the waves. Be still as non-moving water.

Your eyes are not really windows through which you look out into the world. Your eyes are cameras that send electronic images of the world into you.”  Michael A. SingerThe Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

 

2) Meditate

Meditation isn’t just for monks or gurus. Businesses executives, entrepreneurs and artists are using meditation to achieve higher levels of creativity and success.  Ideally 20 minutes of meditation each day helps other aspects of your life and business fall into place. However take baby steps the first week meditate for 5 minutes and after 10 days add 5 more minutes and so on.

Eventually you will see that the real cause of problem is not life itself. It’s the commotion the mind makes about life that really causes the problems.” Michael SingerThe Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

3) Focus on the narrative you want to live

“If you want to be happy, you have to let go of the part of you that wants to create melodrama. This is the part that thinks there’s a reason not to be happy. You have to transcend the personal, and as you do, you will naturally awaken to the higher aspects of your being. In the end, enjoying life’s experiences is the only rational thing to do. You’re sitting on a planet spinning around in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Go ahead, take a look at reality. You’re floating in empty space in a universe that goes on forever. If you have to be here, at least be happy and enjoy the experience. You’re going to die anyway. Things are going to happen anyway. Why shouldn’t you be happy? You gain nothing by being bothered by life’s events. It doesn’t change the world; you just suffer. There’s always going to be something that can bother you, if you let it.”  Michael A. SingerThe Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yoursel

4) Your mind is a garden. Keep the animals out

Thoughts are a virus and many people are sick. It’s important to protect your mind from negative opinions. Your mind is a garden. Without a strong fence, animals will get in and destroy your crops. Avoid the destructive influence of negative opinion and misinformation. Keep the animals out. “Do not let anything that happens in life be important enough that you’re willing to close your heart over it.”  Michael A. SingerThe Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

5) Know the difference between Ego and Higher Self.

Your Ego is your lower animal nature. Its stems from is fear and survival. The Ego talks very loud and is hard to ignore. By contrast, your Higher Self is your wisdom, creativity, and intuition. It is Universal creative consciousness channeled through you. The Higher Self speaks very quietly and can be difficult to hear. Listen closely to the Higher Self (and edge out the Ego). It will create a healthier, happier mind. “There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind—you are the one who hears it.”  Michael A. SingerThe Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
