If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, then you are victim of a hyper-active mind! The mind has the uncanny ability to make or break us! The mind is the reason why one achieves limited or exponential success. Its the mind that can elevate us or lead us to our downfall. The mind also helps us choose a right or wrong path in life. All of us appreciate the importance of the mind in our lives but what most of us are not conscious about is its constant chattering. This chattering is responsible for putting us in a state of flux which results into worries, stress, frustration and ultimately depression.
Now you would like to know, how can we stop this chattering? Well, it may not be possible to stop this chattering, its only after years of practice that some individuals have been able to gain complete control in this area. However, all of us have the capability to reduce the intensity of this chattering. You will experience a phenomenal surge of energy, the very day you start working in this direction.
All that we need to do is to work towards calming our minds. The most effective technique to calm the mind is the age old technique of meditation. There are several forms of meditation, one should simply try all of them and find the one which best suits him/ her. Just like no two fingers are equal, no two individuals are equal. Our likes and dislikes vary, so to prescribe a method of meditation is not advisable. Most people have a misconception about this art, meditation is not just sitting silently in a dark corner. Meditation can be active or passive. One can meditate with force or without it. One can meditate while jogging or one can meditate in silence. Even dancing is a form of active meditation, and chanting is another subtle form. One can renounce everything, go to the Himalayas to meditate or one can simply stay in this hectic world and continue performing his duties in peace. The method one uses is irrelevant but achieving a state of a “calm mind” is what is important.
So you must discover a form of meditation which works best for you and practice it regularly for a few moments everyday. This would slowly help you remain centered in all the activities you perform throughout the day. Your span of attention will become more focused and effectiveness will enhance in every area of your life. Regular practice will gradually improve the power of your mind and one fine day the chattering may come to a standstill. That is the day, you would reach a state of complete ecstasy.
