10 Ways To Declutter Your Mind
So you keep your home tidy, clean your clothes and remove and take out the trash. But how much often do you declutter your mind?
It’s usually much easier to see the benefits of decluttering your home than it is for your mind because you can see immediate physical changes.
And Just like it is easier to find things and work in a clean and organized environment, the same is true when it comes to having a clear mind.
Creating a clear mental space can be easier than you think, you just need to set aside some time and experiment with various methods to find which approach works best for you.
So here are 10 simple ways for how you can declutter your mind:
1. Change in breathing
Many studies show slow and controlled breathing relaxes both the body and mind. This makes it easier to clear your mind and it can also be used to raise your frequency.
All that is required is to become consciously aware of your breathing and to slow down the pace, which is a convenient tool you can use at any moment.
2. Take a walk with nature
Walking with nature raises your frequency allowing you to view your struggles and daily challenges from a higher perspective.
It also makes it easier to think less from the ego and more from the soul. By seeing plants and trees it will make your mind more present because you see how in the moment nature is.
An additional benefit comes from the physical activity of walking or jogging that will also uplift your spirits and clear your mind.
3. Call upon air spirits
The air spirits also known as air elementals can be very useful for calming the mind and can also be used to help with telepathy. Making it easier to communicate with other spirits such as your spirit guides.
When it comes to connecting with the air spirits, first use a form of spiritual protection that you’re familiar with and comfortable using.
And then take slow and controlled deep breaths and begin to call out for their help or guidance either internally or out loud.
Ringing a bell or chime can also help to connect with the air spirits.
Meditation will bring you back to the moment with nature and your true self. The eternal part of you, your soul and to step out of fear-based egoic thinking.
This will also help to raise your frequency and reconnect to your heart center. Making it easier to receive divine guidance being able to communicate with angels and your spirit guides.
It can be difficult when the mind is full of chatter or when you’re busy to set the time and to meditate. However, you don’t have to be an advanced yogi in the Himalayas to benefit from meditation.
You can meditate even when you’re sat on public transport, waiting for someone to get ready, during commercials, or anything else where you are waiting for something.
Just focus on your breathing becoming aware of both your inhalation and exhalation allowing any thoughts to arise avoiding trying to change them.
5. Speak to someone close
There aren’t many things that cause a cluttered mind more than holding in strong feelings and not sharing them with anyone.
Sometimes because we think either people won’t care or that people have enough of their own challenges to listen to ours. It can cause us to bottle and hold onto how we feel internally.
It can be pleasantly surprising just how much people around us do care and also end up getting things off their chest.
6. Write it down
With all the different thoughts, tasks, and responsibilities that we have in our day-to-day lives. It can be difficult to know what our thoughts are trying to communicate. Which can cause us to feel overwhelmed and anxious.
Whenever your mind won’t stop racing or a particular thought or feeling keeps arising, write it down as this makes it easier to become aware of what is really going on which will calm your mind.
It also makes it easier to become aware of any signs and guidance from our spirit guides.
If you ever feel mentally fuzzy or having constant inner chatter, take 5-10 minutes to jot down your thoughts, you’ll be surprised how much of a difference this can make.
7. Ask your soul
When we get caught up in the day-to-day and encouraged by society to focus on this physical reality, the bills, deadlines, arguments, and everything else that keeps us busy.
It can make us forget about our internal navigation system and asking what our soul thinks. When we get clear on what our soul truly wants.
It helps us to prioritize what is important which nurtures and uplifts our soul and quietens the mind.
You can do this by asking yourself questions such as:
What does my soul think about this?
What does my soul think I should do?
Make a list and number in order of importance what is the most important thing for you to start focusing on.
8. Remove what doesn’t serve your highest good
After becoming aware of what your soul truly wants, it's much easier to remove what isn’t serving you and anything that is adding any unnecessary mental clutter.
Ask yourself questions such as:
What does my soul think I should remove from my life?
What does my soul think I should reduce my time doing?
Make a list to make it easier to keep track of what answers come to you and what is worth removing.
9. Reduce time on social media
Social media is a great way to connect with friends and family, it can also be used to connect with high-frequency groups full of people sharing love and light.
However, Sometimes it might distract your mind and suck you into other people's drama, and what other people are posting especially if it's controversial.
If you find it difficult to remain present and your mind feeling hectic, ask yourself how much time do you spend on social media.
And consider taking a break-even for a full 24 hours or more.
10. Slow down and focus on a single task
Can you recall a time when you felt rushed having to do multiple things at once and it made you forget what you were just doing?
This is a very fast way to stack tasks on top of each other in your mind. imagine this as a table with more and more items piled on top of each other, it wouldn’t take long for the table to become cluttered.
The same is true with our minds, take a deep breath in, ask your soul what you should prioritize slow down, and focus on one task at a time.
Make it easy for yourself
These ways to declutter your mind aren’t to stop mental chatter completely but rather are tools you can use to help whenever you feel the need. I hope you have found them useful with love and light.
