More Insights About How to Quiet Your Mind
I am a student of Dr. David R. Hawkins Teachings. I have come to quiet the mind by applying his mechanism of letting go. I explain how to let go, using Dr. Hawkins’ mechanism of letting go (650*) here.
I have come to understand, that the mind is fueled by suppressed, repressed, and unprocessed emotions. When you “let go of” or surrender those buried energies, the mind gets quieter. There’s no “fuel” or “energy” to activate the mind. This is how I quiet my mind very effectively.
This is likely a leap for you if you continue to struggle with quieting the mind.
Many have advised meditation as a solution to quieting the mind, and I understand it can be effective. However, I didn’t really love the whole meditation route.
I am more of a contemplative type, an observer of my own way of being, as well as observing what is coming from others as a mirror to me.
So how can you quiet your mind by taking a different route than meditation?
STEP 1: Step into courage on your willingness to allow your buried emotions to come up and brought into your awareness.
STEP 2: Understand that it doesn’t “mean” anything that old stuff is presenting itself to you to be released. So ignore the rabbit hole of the mind wanting to “make meaning” out of it. This is the “fuel” that the mind has been given from the “well” of buried emotions. The thoughts and feelings are just the type of energy that’s presenting itself to you. This is how the mind uses fuel.
Understand that this is “OLD NEWS”.
STEP 3: Learn how to “let go” and surrender the old stuff. Letting go is not necessarily what you may perceive it to be. It requires conscious awareness and understanding of how to do it. When you do, the mechanism of letting go can be like a rocket ship for how to quiet your mind and make a significant shift in your perceptions of life.
STEP 4: Set intentions (310*) to quiet your mind. To do so empowers you with the “energy” you need to get the energy flowing in a constructive way.
STEP 5: Open your mind to all of the above as you are stepping into higher consciousness in each step. You need higher consciousness to “fuel” your intentions. There is no “energy” in the lower levels of consciousness that fuel the mind for many. To be OPEN calibrates at around 310, which is the level of willingness on the Map.
STEP 6: Be aware that when you set your intention to let go of buried stuff, then life will present you with opportunities to “see” what’s still buried within you. Those opportunities for “seeing” will show up as common triggers. The key is to remember that you “asked for it” and to NOT REACT. This is the opportunity to allow the energy of the reaction to come up and pass through you.
This is different than repressing it again!
It’s OK that it’s there. Don’t disparage yourself for having the feeling. Just allow the energy of the feeling to pass through you. Even say out loud or to yourself, I am willing to allow this feeling to pass through me now.
In your willingness to allow it to pass through you, you will experience a lightness.
This is a sign you have let this buried energy go.
