The Untamed Mind And How To Tame It

26 October 2016 Written by 

My mind can be my enemy unless I tame it. My mind is powerful and produces a cacophony of thoughts that can drive me literally crazy unless I recognize this one simple truth – I am not my thoughts! My thoughts can be ruthless and unkind. They argue with me. They can call me names if I let them. They can run me through with a knife if I let them. They especially love to speak incessantly. I call them “the itty-bitty committee” in my head which goes on and on like a hamster in a wheel. Enough already!

My thoughts can keep me a prisoner of the past – thus keeping me in despair and discouragement. They can also keep flogging me into the future – where I live in a place of anxiety and fear. Neither of these places is where I choose to live!

I have learned how to quiet my thoughts and live in the silence, away from the cacophony of my mind. It is in this silence that I can hear the whispers of a deeper voice that comes from my connection to Source. This voice brings clarity and truth to me.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
