Why Won’t Our Mind Shut Up?

Do you ever feel crazy?

Like, you shouldn’t have all those random thoughts in your head and something must be wrong with you?

You are not crazy.

You are a normal human with a conscious mind. There is a lot of stigma about the word crazy, and no one wants to be considered crazy. I hear this all the time, “Am I your craziest client?” This is said with dread and fear etched into their face.

I think our society has gone mad trying to be “fine” all the time and repressing any emotion that cannot be controlled with logic. Most people do not feel safe feeling their feelings around other people in general. The constant pressure to keep it together and always appear normal and problem-less needs to change, it is not sustainable. Trying to control ourselves like this leads to depression, apathy and anxiety. We think there is something wrong with us, rather than something wrong with this nutty way of contorting to unnatural societal expectations.

Being a person on the planet doesn’t have to be so complicated, but for some reason it seems to be.

In the world of personal development there is a lot of jargon and terminology that can be confusing for people simply trying to have more peace, joy and authenticity in their lives.

Here are some clear points to consider.

  1. All of your thoughts are not yours.
  2. You are not your thoughts.

This understanding is so effective, I aways teach this to my 1 on 1 clients and groups. This perspective on thoughts liberates people from the hamster wheel of trying so hard and judging the bajeebers out of themselves for every single thought, word, or action that isn’t “right.”

Most of your thoughts are picked up from childhood, outside influences like the workplace and the media, and the general noise of the world.

It’s not so serious, thoughts are data passing through our brains. We have not learned to tune ourselves to the thoughts that are our own and the thoughts that are just looping automatically.

The rise of meditation and mindfulness has allowed many people to begin this process of being the observer, sometimes referred to as being the witness. This terminology defines the ability to notice thoughts without attaching to them, reacting to them, or believing them without discernment.

You are not crazy you are a human being with a mind that has not been taught how to actually use it. You’ve been taught lots of things, but rarely do I come across people that have learned how to use their mind, heart, body and spirit intelligence systems in order to hear their own voice and make choices from their most authentic selves.

If you want to learn this I made a program for this exact reason: jennasmithcoaching.com/you-are-the-manual

The Thought Sphere: Not all Thoughts are Yours

All thoughts that have been thought, and are being thought, are in the air just as much as all the wifi signals or radio and satellite waves.

Think of it as a thought sphere. There are many thoughts from many sources all roaming around in thought space. We can pick up thoughts from anywhere, we can let thoughts go, we can grow thoughts we want more of, we can enjoy the space between the thoughts. It starts with awareness first, then practice.

Meditation simplified is the ability to know you are not your thoughts, be with everything and react to very little, and hang out in the space where thoughts do not exist. Much like an airplane flies above the clouds and there is a palpable experience of clarity above the buzz and noise of humanity.

Quick and Fun Meditation: Closing the Files

In a quiet place, sit and consider how many files or tabs are open in your mind right now? Just like on the computer.

Trust yourself and just notice, don’t judge yourself or try to change anything.

Now, which files or tabs could be closed? Minimized? Sent to the trash? Deleted?

That’s it.

Practice this clearing exercise whenever you are overwhelmed.

Learn how to use your mind, rather than it using you.

I listen to audiobooks when my thoughts are rushing. It makes me focus. It also helps me sleep. Just don’t listen to anything too exciting or you will never go to sleep. Audiobooks are my sanctuary whenever I am really upset I can listen to a story where the hero is in a lot more trouble then I could ever get into.

The Soviet State, American Style!

The Soviet State, American Style!

With mandates’ success, political orders for social control will continue to grow. We are experiencing tyranny by dictatorship. Biden’s administration is a crime syndicate specializing in bribery and extortion. Demanding the entire population be injected by unproven but already demonstrably dangerous vaccines, is revealing to us the very essence of the Soviet state, American style. If they get away with it, the mandated vaccinations will be just the beginning…

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The latest bottleneck in the supply chain is the hundreds of container ships waiting to be unloaded in West Coast ports like Los Angeles and San Diego. The mainstream media tell us the cause is a shortage of truck drivers. Now we find out that there ARE enough drivers (for the Ports, at least). The real cause is the State of California imposing an…

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

As if the stench wasn’t enough, until this fake Pfizer approval, pushed through with the complicity of a fake president, elected by fake votes, and pushed by the fake media, until today the fastest approval for a vaccine ever took five years – which was for Ebola, that kills ~50% of its victims. By contrast, we have around just six months of safety data for the Covid shot until approval, and the survival rate is 99.997 if you are under 21 and not far below that even up to age 70…

America’s Decline is a Choice

America’s Decline is a Choice

Many in America think that America needs to be brought down to size. Barack Obama once said, “My legacy will be an America brought down to the level of the rest of the world,” and though Obama was not able to realize this ambition, the Biden Administration is moving full speed ahead with plans to weaken the United States militarily and economically, destroying the wealth of the American people in the process…

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

Marching alongside residents like John Tabacco, NYC Conservative Activist and host of the Newsmax show “Wiseguys” were equally incensed New Yorkers like Rev Kevin McCall, a BLM activist. Where MAGA rally-goers generally remain lawful and peaceful, unlike what mainstream media likes to portray, BLM protesters have no such parameters. McCall “made it clear to the crowd that sometimes civil disobedience is the only way to get the government to listen.”

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

The dark forces behind the scenes working to reshape the U.S. are not stupid. It’s clear they’re working to destabilize society, with the long-term objective being to get them the power to transform America! The enemy of the Biden Cabal are clearly those terrible middle-class deplorables who cling to their guns and Bibles. It’s all those creepy people who go to work every day, pay their taxes, obey the law…

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

The latest mutation is “gender fluid” people – you can be a man one day, a woman the next day, then back to a man, and then whatever suits you. The predictable result? Rapists can now claim to be female whenever it helps them to rape. This rapist wore a skirt, entered the girl’s restroom, then raped a girl. Twice. Enabled and abetted by the school authorities, who knowingly transferred him to another school where he promptly committed the same crime all over again…

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Politically biased private communication monopolies have canceled social media accounts of a duly elected sitting president, along with blocking scandalous information regarding foreign influence-peddling by his opponent just prior to the 2020 election. First Amendment rights are being routinely abridged through an ever-creeping ideologically…
