View Full Version : Focusing your mind to create the desired state.

Whenever I feel down, or not at my best I try to focus my mind on something that really makes me feel good to try and re-create that state of mind at a later date when I need a mental boost.
I lovvvvvve to drive! And consider myself a pretty decent driver even tho im only 21. I can drift, and when im drifting for those 1-5 seconds of intensity I feel free... I also occasionaly play golf and there is little to compare when you time a strike of a golf ball absolutely bang on and it feels like hitting small ball of euphoric white light (best way I can decirbe it). Rollercoasters also thats another good one... Drawing and Writing (its meditation for me as it completly clears my mind). Yoga stretches, Music. And another one that people might see as LOCO(i dont care, this is me!) is remembering getting a piercing or tattoo...
What thing(s) would others say they get most of a kick out of and really makes them feel happy??? Apart from the damn obviously lets keep the sexiness to a minimum fellas and felletes...:p

I love to listen to music. Whatever mood I'm in, I can pick up a record to suit my feelings at the time.
Journalling is great for me as well. I can release my emotions in a healthy and productive manner and I find it to be really therapeutic.
I also enjoy reading, doing sudoku and watching cartoons to lift my spirits. :)

When I feel "down" I try to enjoy the feeling and appreciate it as an aspect of life rather than trying to cheer myself up (unless I need to be sociable because it would be rude to wallow in wistful misery around others unless I know them and that they don't mind).
If I really need a boost then I like to set little goals that I can easily achieve and then feel good about attaining them. "YES! I cooked some rice! Aren't I the competent one!!"

personally when i need to get into that good frame of mind i remember bits of my daughters first things, day at school, silly joke, steps etc. She is 10 tomorrow so i hope i will have plenty more of those to come :)

Focusing your mind to create the desired state. I just watched THE MATRIX again earlier and I would LOVE to be able to take a spoon and BEND THE IMAGE!!!!!!! (I have no idea how to focus hard enough to see "THERE IS NO SPOON" -- Your mind makes it appear to be a SPOON when in reality it isnt!!)

Recently a key in my pocket bent. No idea how or why. I can't bend it at all with my fingers.

No I didn't and if I can't bend it with my fingers I don't think I could bend it with my butt :D

I take a nice warm bath light my candles and burn incense. Sometimes I will listen to nice music at the same time. It never fails to calm me down. If the weather is good a swim down at the beach has the same effect. Even watching the ocean helps.
I am a Leo with two planets in Leo and a rising in Aries....I guess I need a lot of water to cool down lol
