The repeating patterns of thought, the ones that we have had thousands of times before, are there all the time in the background.
They are so normal that we do not notice them. It is like static or white noise, playing 24/7.
These thoughts are not constructive, positive or new.
To find them we need to bring awareness and consciousness to ourselves. It is a bit like shining a light into a dark cave, these thoughts hide deep in the cave, deep in our unconsciousness.
If we remain in the moment, present, conscious, and awake, then the light shines on them, once we see them we can then choose to change them, to stop them. Once the light is shined on them they can not survive.
Consciousness is achieved when we allow our thoughts to be, simply witnessing them and not responding so as to not energise them. If we focus on the beauty around us, the noise, the light, the smells, the sounds, our own breathing and inner energy, then we can take that light into the cave and find those deep unconscious thoughts.
Everyone has untapped creativity in their amazing minds. Unfortunately, it remains that way for most of our life, simply because our minds are too busy with the endlessly repeating mindstreams that serve no purpose.
Yeah, the ones like ‘you’re a failure’, ‘see, no one likes me’, ‘I was the ugliest person there’, ‘I am sure I will get fired first’, ‘they’re laughing at me’, ‘I bet she earns more than me’, and so on. We repeat the same stuff, without purpose, without any change…on and on.
Imagine if we stopped that and the mindstreams were constructive, creative and with purpose.
It could be that way, we simply need to become conscious of all these repeating thoughts and simply choose to observe them, be the silent witness. Then all that space we create, all that energy that isn’t wasted on these destructive thoughts can be turned to do the most amazing things.
Think and you sabotage. Be awake, aware and conscious and your mind becomes the most powerful tool you could imagine. We can all unlock our potential simply by giving the sabotaging thought space to be without response and it dissolves to allow us to flourish.
