Our minds are often too busy and we don’t think properly, and we don’t take time out to do absolutely nothing. This nothingness of space is very beneficial. How do we get there?
It’s not a place we get to, it really is a state of being? The mind can’t do being because being happens in the heart and even deeper in the seat of the soul.
One of the best things we can do to open our minds is to start with guided meditations. They will bring about a small amount of time in an altered state of mind. This will be enough to begin with, to see an opening for more later on.
There are also the live transmissions of people who have devoted their entire life to be in an open receiving and receptive state. These leaders amongst us are connected to that nothingness of space and then they radiate that energy, that frequency so that those listening can entrain with it and feel it too.
You can also read books with encoded messages inside, again from divine source, channelled through a human being and into a sequence of words. As you read the sentences of a written live transmission, your mind steps to the side and rests. It is in that resting time that your mind is given a chance to open and see the world anew.
Eventually, you will learn how to love your mind such that you give it what it needs to be renewed and therefore to be thinking properly.
Doing nothing is not possible. Nothing is a state of being and you get to it when u drop the doing on mental, emotional and physical level. For example, I sit still and I know for me I need to stop fidgeting with my body in order to get quite and enter my mind space. From physical to mental. In the mental space I start to hear people’s voices and thoughts and things they have said to me but if I continue to sit still and remember to be the observer, then I move to the emotional level. I start to feel fear, anxiety, and then relief or relaxation. At this point I try to remember to breathe through the emotions, so I breathe deeply and on purpose. Deliberate breaths in and out while still remaining static. Eventually, I reach the zero-point space. Also known as the reset or nonconditioned consciousness. This is the nothingness of space. This is the absolutely doing nothing dimension. As I remain still and breathe, I am aware of vast open emptiness. Usually, on the way back towards getting up and doing something, I start to get inspired solutions because my mind has been opened to receive new perspectives.
Like I said a guided meditation can get you to this nothing space for a short period of time which can be and will be enough to begin with. My favorite guided meditations are these: Teal Swan’s Vault
I think another easy and super simple way to get back into an open mind is to change your focus a few times a day. Turn to your heart. Put a hand on your chest where your physical heart is and set a timer for 10 minutes. Even if you don’t say anything, don’t do anything, the simple hand to heart connection is going to reset your nervous system. If you learn to say nice things to yourself, then that would be even better. For that reason, I am including my favorite mantras in both languages Bulgarian and English.
The more we start to honour our minds are the most hard-working machine ever, the more it will relax and be soothed. Openness comes only after we are relaxed and we are in the body. If we are pushing or striving, it won’t happen. A delicate balance between doing and being, between appreciation and striving, between taking action and resting is needed if you want your mind to open and function well. Just like nature, she moves through her seasons and just like in sexy time, the female needs moisture to open otherwise it’s off balance, its braking an entry and it’s a violation. I think the great reset we are living through with the Covid situation is telling us to slow down, listen, connect to the silence, there is nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one to become, no extreme mountains to climb. We have time to be still and it is there in that stillness that you will find an opening. From that opening you will find the inspiration and resources to complete a project infused with fresh energy and confidence. When your mind is rested, you may experience more confidence and certainty.
I love how much change is being cooked underneath the seemingly closed doors and restrictions. My only wish is that we all take self-care and self-love god dam serious.
p.s. I just remembered the acronym
WE – word embodied
ARE – awareness + resolution = expansion
ONE – openness never excludes
which reminds me to highlight that a closed mind is like a small child and it requires love more than anything else. Love being tender care and attention, listening, patience and so on.
