Feel as you think Mind Map

  1. 1. Feel as you thinkSometimes we have feelings about our thoughts, other times we think about our feelings. Sometimes we think about ourthoughts, other times we feel deeply the feelings we have.A lot of the time we forget to connect thought and feeling, yet the two can and do often work together, and often betterthan thought or feeling alone.What do I think? What do I feel? What do I think about my feelings? What do I feel about my thoughts?How often do you connect with your body when you think? Is your thinking solely based in your mind or do you listen toyour body as well? Do you think as you feel? Do you feel as you think?How do you “feel as you think”? Here are some possibilities to experiment with which if you have practiced meditationmay already be familiar to you, yet very often meditation is undertaken as a session rather than as a way of “being”.Having greater connection with your body helps encourage calm and relaxation all through the day rather than onlyduring your brief meditation sessions.How to feel as you thinkBefore thinking:1. Be aware of your breath2. Be aware of the life inside you3. Become calm and relaxed4. Then thinkAs you think try to maintain a connection with your breath or body. If thoughts take over and you forget the breath orbody you can always stop thinking and reconnect. Tune back in to the body or breath then recommence thinking.The connection varies in strength; in the gaps, where you are not thinking you can have greater and deeper awarenessof body or breath.When you prepare yourself to think from a relaxed state you will notice you are more aware of your surroundings; moreaware of the present moment. You will also notice your thinking is clearer, you are not only aware of surroundings, thepresent moment, yourbreath and body, most importantly of all you are aware of your thinking. Being aware of your thinking helps you
  2. 2. question and clarify your thoughts. Questioning and clarifying your thoughts also helps you question and clarify youractions.Experiment with connecting with your breath and body and combining it either simultaneously or in alternation with yourthinking. A good practice exercise is to try connecting with your body or breath whilst watching the television to helpdeepen breath and body awareness.On a more personal level and as a side exercise here is a deep and probing question to ask yourself when you try thebody, breath and thought connection:If today were my last day on this planet would I spend my time doing what I am doing?You may find that by connecting with your body rather than solely identifying with your thoughts you feel calmer andmore relaxed and better able to process your thinking.Feel as you think to help clarify your thoughts.Try it.See what you think about it.See how you feel about it.
