Parking Your Thoughts has to do with the power of the spoken word, the unspoken word and the thoughts we hold tight.
Where do you park? I’m not referring to your car, I am referring to your thoughts. What thought or thoughts does your mind rest on most often?
The spoken word has enormous impact on us, especially when accompanied by honest emotion. The words we think and say hold a depth of power few understand though thankfully, the subject is becoming more and more popular.
The subject of, and discussion about where we park our thoughts however, is relatively uncharted territory.
In mediation we are encouraged to allow our mind to be still. Initially this can be daunting. Finding and holding this space, or actually living in this space is challenging.
I’m a huge believer in adding light to our lives. Staying mindful of what we are feeling, thinking, and saying helps us do just that, as does meditation. But meditative state aside…when we rest, where do we park our thoughts at the end of the day or at the end of a conversation?
After the words have been spoken, where does the mind go?
Think about the last time you “spaced out” during a walk and found yourself blocks away from your intended destination. Do you remember where your mind went?
Unconsciously parking your thoughts is when you find yourself replaying a scenario over and over again in your head. You keep the emotion behind the memory alive in a suspended freeze or you hold onto the feeling the event evokes, and you park there.
The mind does go somewhere when it roams and I believe that remaining conscious of where it goes is as important as the words we speak and the thoughts we think.
I find it encouraging to know that once we learn how and where to park our thoughts, we gain access to a new level of contentment that feels really delicious. I refer to it as a purposeful neutral. But we need to stay conscious of where we allow our mind to wonder.
Consciously parking our thoughts in a safe environment contributes to our ability to manifest the fabulous.
So, I have a question for you and it is not a commoner one? Where do you park your thoughts?
Do you rest them on feelings of love, hope, hopelessness, daring, or of course, fear? Do you know?
Find a parking spot…Ask yourself these three questions when you are alone and have a few moments to yourself.
Who am I?
How am I?
Where am I?
Who am I? (Say your full name. This will protect and ground you.)
How am I? (Are you happy, sad, anxious, hungry etc. This will connect you more solidly to your body and your feelings.)
Where am I? (I’m in my living room and watching my son play. (You are present.)
You now have more conscious control over where you rest your thoughts. This is where affirmations can be a beautiful thing. Choose an affirmation, quote, or poem that feels good to read and rest your thoughts there. Allow the sensations you feel as you read the affirmation to move in and through you. Memorize the feelings.
Here is an example. If you are feeling excited and anxious over upcoming changes in your life, read something like this affirmation and hold onto the feeling reading it evokes. This is what I mean when I say,… Park your thoughts HERE!
When our mind is spinning and we want to calm and slow it down…
When we are in pain…
When we want to boost our confidence…
When we dare!
When we berate ourselves…
When we are feeling the strength within…
Remember…When we know how and where to graciously rest our thoughts, and choose to do so, we gain access to a new level of contentment.
