Retrain Your Mind For Your Benefit

Have you ever noticed when you wake up from a nap or perhaps when you get up in the morning or after your sleep time - that as you're gradually waking up you feel pretty good and then like an unwelcome visitor your subconscious or perhaps subtle fears kick in and places where you often have pains you "feel" them but actually what is happening is that your thought triggers them.

This does not mean that your thought is somehow the enemy. Rather your thought is attempting to prepare you for your day or prepare you for your waking state and it is attempting to be the tactician suggesting that this could happen and that could happen and therefore one must prepare as one normally does.

I want to suggest something very simple along the lines of other things suggested here from time to time and that is when you wake up from any sleep - it will take a while to train to do this but you can get there - it has been a discipline for me - when you wake up from any sleep, if possible become aware or bring your awareness into the bottoms of your feet.

You can wiggle your toes around if that's comfortable or if you've already swung your legs out over the bed you can move your feet around on the floor or on the ground wherever they happen to be.

Try to be conscious then, not only of what you need to do immediately after you wake up but be conscious - literally have your consciousness in the bottoms of your feet.

What this means essentially is sensitizing the bottoms of your feet. That's why it's good to trigger them slightly - moving them around you see - on the rug or other stimulation like that.

I am not saying to not pay attention to where you are walking or where you are going but this kind of discipline - because it really is a mental discipline - will prompt you to, over time, simply become aware of some part of you body that feels good.

Now for some of you your feet may not feel good, then perhaps your hands feel good. Do the same thing with your hands or with any part of your body that normally feels good.

In this way it is possible to retrain your mind to expect to feel good when you wake up in the morning. It won't work a hundred percent of the time of course but it is often a very valuable way to bring about a state of condition wherein your mind is less of a tactician and more of a comforter that helps to bring about a benevolent and balanced state of affairs in your waking state.

Give it a try and see how it works for you. Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
