Stop Overthinking and Change your Life Today

Do you like to research and analyze things?

I’ve always found it hard to understand people who don’t think too much like me.

I can’t imagine what it feels like to let things go naturally, instead of dissecting them and running them over and over in my mind.

At least, I used to be. It got to a point where I had to quit for my sanity!

It’s great to be a deep thinker, and probably, if you’re reading this, you might be a deep thinker too.

This is because we, the overthinkers, are often drawn to the spiritual side of things, longing to figure out the meaning of life and understand ourselves and the world around us.

Being curious and a deep thinker is a wonderful trait, but it can become detrimental when it starts to block your ability to feel peace.

What is Detrimental Thinking?

  • When your thinking becomes obsessive and causes you anxiety.
  • When it stops you from being able to make clear and confident decisions.
  • When it acts as a block to your ability to manifest.

I am sensitive to energy and vibrations, and always know when my overthinking and constant mental chatter has created a kind of fog around me energetically, preventing me from accessing my true divine self.

It literally acts like a barrier between my crown third eye and source energy. That’s why I had to learn how to control it.

Too much thinking with the mind can lead you in a circle. You have to learn to feel from your heart too.

Do you relate to this?

It’s hard for us sensitive types to control our minds sometimes.

Our thoughts carry vibrations, and the more you let your mind run all over the place, the more energy those vibrations give off.

Soon you will ride on their energetic momentum without even realizing it is happening.

When this happens, your entire reality begins to shift according to that cluttered energy, and it becomes more challenging to manifest and access your inner self.

Why? Because as you offer your vibration to the Universe, it, in turn, gives you a reality that reflects that vibration.

Remember that this is a vibrational Universe that responds to your energetic frequency whether that is positive, negative or mixed.

You are creating your reality in every moment with your thoughts.

If your thoughts are chaotic, cluttered, and anxious, guess what?

You are giving off an embarrassed vibe that can attract indecision, stagnant energy, fatigue, anxiety and even depression, and a general lack of motivation.

But don’t panic! You don’t want to start worrying about every single thought you have and trying to control them with your mind.

After all, that’s just another form of overthinking!

So what is the solution?

Mastering your thoughts and learning to stop the endless wandering in your mind means changing your awareness in your heart.

Einstein famously said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

What he meant was that the solution is always a different vibration to the problem.

So we can’t think how to get out of overthinking. We have to go down in our hearts.

What does it mean to follow your heart?

When you follow your heart you are more in touch with your emotions and feelings.

You are more connected to your instinct, and are able to make decisions for your life without constantly running the same thoughts through your mind.

You to some extent turn the clock down in the “thinking part” of the mind and turn the dial up on your heart space.

You turn to your heart to guide you to what is right for you, the decision that resonates with your whole being and not just in your mind.

Of course this way of being takes practice, you have to be determined to catch yourself when you start overthinking.

But once you start turning the energy more towards your heart space, it’s easy to see the positive results.

You will feel freer, happier, stronger, and much more confident.

Being less caught up in your mind with all its thoughts and anxieties is a spiritual release.

Here are my top tips to help you transition from overthinking to feeling from your heart:

Daily Meditation: Even just 5 minutes a day of conscious breathing can help your busy thoughts.

You can also try listening to calming music when you wake up or before going to bed, to create a calm atmosphere with cortisol-reducing music or nature sounds.

Visualization: Try to imagine your unproductive thoughts being placed in a large garbage bag and then throwing them out into the Universe to be transformed into light energy.

You can also try this in the shower, imagine the running water washing away your mental chatter metaphorically.

Journals/Morning Pages: Getting your thoughts and worries out on paper without judgment is truly life-changing. Try it for a week and see how it makes you feel.

Use the morning pages as a time for you to release all those busy thoughts almost as if you are cleaning them out of you.

Once you have written up to 3 pages, close your notebook and leave those thoughts and anxieties there, so that they are not taken into the day with you.

Exercise outside: Nothing like movement to get you out of your mind and into your body!

I find that even a brisk walk for 30 minutes in the sunlight does wonders to get me into a different state of being. Aerobics, swimming, cycling, walking, dancing, yoga – whatever takes your factories, make it part of your routine.

Heart-Brain Coherence: This is when you consciously place your awareness in the center of your heart, slowing your breathing to take smooth, cleansing breaths.

It is sending the signal to your nervous system to relax and feel peace.

As you breathe here with your attention on your heart, consciously create a feeling of gratitude, love or compassion.

This elevated emotional state has wonderful benefits for you. You can find this emotion by remembering someone or something in your life that makes you happy and grateful.

Try to stay in this state for 5 minutes for maximum benefits.

This is an incredibly powerful practice that brings you right into your heart space, allowing your heart to influence your thoughts and the quality of your energy in a calm, intuitive and positive way.

Ultimately, living from your heart is your greatest aid to manifestation.

This will help you create your life by opening you to your higher self and guidance from the Universe.

In doing so, you strengthen yourself mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

You create elevated thoughts and raise your own consciousness, you can even strengthen your immune system this way by calming your fight or flight response.

You can think of all those chaotic and cluttered thoughts as energy that needs to be redirected or transmuted in some way.

When you learn to change that energy you can make great strides in your life in positive ways.

Of course, it is a challenge to break out of a habitual way of being, thinking, and experiencing life to arrive at a place of balance and calm, but the rewards are worth the struggle.

Even making the effort is a start.

When you take the time to evolve your spiritual practice you accept responsibility for your own thoughts, emotions and energy – all of which create your life.

You are accepting the fact that no one else can create your reality for you. Everything depends on you.

Do this every day as much as possible and over time you will make a giant transformation in your life experience.
