Quiet the Mind for Spiritual Awareness

quiet the mind

When we come face to face with one of life’s problems, your mind can get in the way of the solution. Our anxieties, our fears, our ego, our rational thoughts can become jumbled up in a rather confusing manner. This can make it nearly impossible to find a solution to the simplest of problems. In this article, we will explore ways you can quiet the mind in order to not only hear your own thoughts, but those of higher beings as well. We’ll also cover look at how to quiet the ego and answer questions such as: can angels read your mind?

Loud Thoughts

You’ve probably been in the situation before where something has gone wrong and your brain just seems to go into panic mood. All processes seem to just stop while the volume of your thoughts seems to be cranked up to 11. This only makes matters worse and no matter how small a problem, it only grows larger through our panic and fear.

We can’t predict when situations like this will arise but we can prepare for them in order to cope in a more practical, functional and efficient manner. So let’s take a look at what you can do to hear yourself and your guides.

Quiet the Mind for better Prayer and Meditation

Learning how to quiet the mind doesn’t need to be a difficult or strenuous task. It may take some practice and it might not work the first few times but by being persistent, you know you’ll get there one way or another. Perhaps the go-to answer for quieting the mind, our first method is prayer and/or meditation.

Before you can quiet the mind, you have to make sure you’re in a quiet environment. Find somewhere peaceful, get comfortable and take a few deep breaths.

You don’t have to carry out a full meditation session but being able to relax your mind, body, and spirit in this way will allow your brain to slow down enough to hear yourself think. You can use this opportunity to reach out to your angels or spirit guides for advice on the situation that is troubling you.

Sometimes all we need is the breath of archangel Metatron or another familiar archangel to comfort us. Some of us won’t be able to jump straight into meditation and prayer though, so just in case this doesn’t work for you, we’ll take a look at some more techniques. You can always return to meditate and pray at the end.

Free Yourself

As we learn how to quiet the mind, we can often realize that the mind isn’t the cause of the problem. Sometimes the issue is our body or our environment. There are two solutions to this problem. The first is to clean (more on that in a moment) and the other is to escape. You don’t have to jump on a plane to Hawaii but you do want to mix the scenery up a bit.

Taking a walk is sometimes the best solution to a loud mind. You’ll find that walking through nature recharges your positive energy and allows you the breathing room that you need. You can use this time to consult with your angels if you so choose or simply ponder over your problem and think of a solution.

Spring Cleaning

When your mind is blocked and you can’t hear yourself think over the sound of your own mind, the last thing you’re likely to be in the mood for is cleaning. Learning how to quiet your mind isn’t always about deep breaths or long walks, sometimes it’s about your own spiritual pathways.

When our chakras become blocked or we are clogged up with negative energy, this can manifest itself as emotional or physical symptoms. It’s possible that your busy mind is simply your brain reacting to a heavy spirit. Luckily, there are some simply solutions to alleviating these symptoms.

Since you may be unaware of where the negative energy is coming from or which chakra is blocked, it’s best to do a deep clean. Usually, you could carry out meditation to discover the problem or consult a higher spirit but given the circumstances and your cluttered mind, this is your best bet.

You’ll want to give your house a complete clean. The cleaner it is, the quieter your mind will become. Don’t stop with your house though, clean yourself as well. Even go as far as treating yourself to a spa day or getting a haircut. You can end this process by lighting some high energy candles.

Let It Out

We live in a world where bottling up emotions and thoughts is a common practice and this leads to a build-up of negative energy but also a stressed mind. We don’t all have someone to turn to and while angels or spirit guides are there for us, some things we don’t want to think, let alone share with another being.

Sometimes we have to learn how to quiet the ego before we can quiet the mind. The ego is the part of us which deals with our self-esteem and self-importance. That voice that’s desperate to be right or to prove your worth.

One simple way to deal with this is to write everything your thinking. You can do this on a laptop or the old fashioned way with a pen and a piece of paper. You don’t have to write a specific way, you can just write until you feel like your ability to quiet the mind is improving.

Speaking of negative thoughts and not wanting to share, you’re perhaps asking the question: can angels read your mind? The answer is yes and no. Angels have the ability to perceive thoughts to an extent but they aren’t Gods and are therefore not omniscient. They can certainly tell the direction your thoughts are headed in but they don’t pick up every single thought.
