What methods do you use to free your mind?

Posted 27 April 2008 - 11:31 PM

Last night I was awake for 2 hours trying to get to sleep. I just couldn't, my brain was thinking too much, and the more I tried to not think of anything, a thought would pop into my head and I wouldn't be able to shake it.

I believe I get school work done a lot quicker at home because I can play music, and that drowns out any distractions that may occur. But what about those times where you are not allowed to have portable music devices in classes or meetings etc.

What do you do to calm yourself or free your thoughts? Discuss.

Binaural Beats will clear your mind, & help prepare you for Astral Projection. I have them on my ipod & I can listen to them at work, at the office, or even when I'm laying down & ready to enjoy some shut-eye.

Have you tried I-Doser? I have a couple of times and haven't really benefited much. I do have high-quality headphones too. If you have tried I-Doser, what would your comparison be between the others be?

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. :)

Guitar. That probably won't help you much.

I can play it whenever I want during the school day. :)

Is this a consistent thing? because sometimes I can't sleep when the seasons change or there is a big storm about to hit. You might just want to try imagining your self putting all the things that you are thinking about into a folder and locking it away... Like mentally going through all the things that bother you, and pushing them away for later. That usually helps me.

work. out.

not before you sleep.
mid day or morning.

and then don't eat 2 hours before you go to sleep.

cured years of bad-sleeping by me.

also, stop drinking caffeine.
every time you want a coke, grab a bottled water with one of those little lipton packs of green tea.

keep water & those packs in supply. and it will break that fix.

What I've heard for calming the mind when thoughts keep bubbling up, is to think of them as clouds. Acknowledge them then let them float away. Pushing them down will only cause them to bubble up again, like pushing a basketball into a swimming pool

might sound stupid but meditating

1) relax
2)close your eyes
3) slowly breath in and feel the sensation of the air entering your nostrils
4)hold for one sec
5) breath out feeling the sensation of air leaving your nostrils
6) repeat

:) apparently im sensitive to spirits and i have to open my mind .. spirits being dead people :) like i can every so often get a thought of what was going to happen and it does happen :) its was kinda scary at first seeing loads of shadows n shizz but you get used :) off topic a bit :D
