You know what I’m talking about?

I make efforts all day to quiet my mind. I have One of those minds that just races, plans, compares, analyses, studies, questions…. It doesn’t stop . I catch myself actually saying “shut up! ” out loud.
Don’t assume that I’m crazy. I used to be that mind, now I’m the one watching that mind and thinking “sheish it doesn’t stop!” . If you ask me , I’m already one step ahead in the game of life. I am Learning and growing everyday. Becoming more and more conscious of things, mainly about myself. I still have a life time of learning to do, but it’s a start. How did all this start?
Meditation and yoga.
Yoga gurus swear on the importance of daily practice but what they insist on is the importance for parents to practice.
You can not become a better parent, a better wife , better son, better sister, brother…. You can only become a better human being.
I’ve been doing this for almost a year now and it has helped broaden my perspective in ways I can not describe. Only those who know what I’m talking about, know what I’m talking about.

How to be in control of your emotions. Step 1: Breaking Free From your Body

We come into this world with no knowledge of it. We only know one thing, we know ourselves. We become children and learn more and more about simple realities of the world. Then we become fully informed adults. Fully informed about the realities of the world and we never stop learning.

All this knowledge of the world is great. But we seem to forget the first thing we ever knew.

We forget ourselves. We’re distracted by life and forget the true essence of who we are.

Look inside, explore. Who are you? Do you really even know?

I’m turning 30 this year and I’m still learning things about myself and I’m realizing that I still have a very long way to go before I can say that I know all that I am.

You know your mind, you know your body. Who are you aside of your body or of your mind?

Body and brain are matter, tissue, all physically tangible. What are you other than that?

We’re born aware of ourselves and then we lose this knowledge along the way.

A few months ago I blogged about how I wanted to break free of my body. How I didn’t want my body to decide for me how I should feel. How I didn’t want hormones, lack of sleep, work, stress or anything else to control me. I want to be in control of myself. I want to choose my emotions. I want to choose happy and that’s what I want to be.

I was seeking for answers.

When you seek, you usually find.

And I did.

I learned that looking inside you and connecting with the person you are within yourself can help you dissociate from your body.

Does this make any sense? Is anybody following? Do you think I’m crazy?

Basically I’ve found something that works for me and I’m sharing.

I assure you my hormones are still raging, my exhaustion is at a peak that I’ve never known before and sleep is relatively inexistent.

But I’m happy. Always happy.

We think that children have trouble dissociating what is real from unreal. While we’re actually further from the truth than them.

Step 1. Break free from your body by connect with your inner self.

“How many steps to this whole process ?”

I’m don’t know because I haven’t finished it.

“How do I connect with my inner self?”

That can be explained in a future post.
