- Dec 13, 2006Hi Sean:
I'm glad you found some answers. I had the same issue you had.
My problem was mind racing. I just couldn't stop it. My mind seemed
to think that because I was trying to bring stillness to my thoughts,
it had to fill it with something. It would drive me crazy. I
started using tools. I'm a producer, so I used visuals. I use video
clips to get me started. I can then flow right into a meditative
state. I have some clips at http://www.tranquilityisyours.com
I make sure my windows media player is on repeat and I use the clips
as a visual tool, or close my eyes and use the audio as the tool to
help me move past mind racing and into a meditative state. It works
for my and several others I've heard from. I can log on anywhere and
use them just to calm me down.
If you get stuck again, see if it works for you.
