Think Too Much? Learn to Silence Negative Thoughts

Grahak Cunningham shares how overcoming your tendency to think too much can help you lighten your load.

Sometimes we think about things too much.

We need to be more in the heart. The mind is a part of our existence that causes real problems when we are attempting something. Everybody on earth has experienced the stream of endless and meaningless thoughts that crop up in the mind.

Think back to a time when you have been lying in bed unable to sleep. Never-ending banter and thoughts make you agitated and restless. As a result you toss and turn and cannot rest. The mind will do this 24/7 unless you learn to invoke silence, to access a deeper part of yourself.

Distracting and uninspiring thoughts, self doubts and negativities directly affect our mood and performance. Marathoners call it hitting the wall, business people call it stress, most people know it as a ‘tough day’.

We are deeper than this; in the core of our being, strength, power, poise and silence all exist. If we can tap into this inner source, nothing can stop us moving forward. Defeated by our own determination and effort, problems drop away.

This determination doesn’t come from the mind, which changes its opinion every minute. It comes from our hearts and souls which take and carry us to the most wonderful of places, where in the field of life, everyone can be victorious. True joy can flow through us and we can enjoy the wonderful moments in our life.

Think to a time when you have been awestruck. The power of a mountain, the setting or rising sun or the simple smile of child. They invoke good qualities from within our hearts. We aren’t thinking of bills to be paid, work tomorrow, or problems with the family – we just identify with the beauty around us.Continue reading at

Choose one ... glass half full or glass half empty. If you keep bouncing back and forth between them, you'll remain stuck in place, cluttered, overwhelmed, with no space forward movement

Choose one positive possibility about everything crossing your path today, (good for you or bad and toss), both will present -- you choose.
