What is my next thought going to be?


When our minds are racing and we can’t seem to stop the “monkey mind”, here is a neat trick to try that I learned from Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now.

Close your eyes and ask your mind: what is my next thought going to be? Then just wait. I’m not sure how this works, but it really does stop your racing mind. Now, the real you, the observer, is kind of waiting- waiting to see what your mind does and when.

Give it a try and see what happens.
