  • Concentrating/thoughts running through my mind

    Hi everyone,

    I'm very new to this. When I welcome in what I want to release on, my mind races and wanders, and I'm flooded with thoughts. I can't concentrate. What can I do? Thanks!

    Hi emdeluxe!

    Welcome to TSM Community!

    When the mind races and even wanders and is flooded with thoughts see if you can welcome this too. IOWs just notice what it's like to have racing, wandering flooded mind. Bring awareness to it. and then see if you are wanting to control this, change it, resist it, get rid of it, figure out what to do with it or about it and welcome that too. Then see if you could just let go of wanting to do any of that. And then let us know what it's like to do that. Hint: Resisting what the mind is doing will just make what it's doing more intense. Welcoming, noticing, allowing each thought and distraction consciously to be here will offer a uniquely __________ experience. You get to fill in that blank.

      This just started happening to me too, on CD8. Last night I couldn't concentrate on the fear/anxiety release, so I just figured I was tired and to try again tomorrow. Today I tried again and same thing (can't stay focused and follow along). I'm interpreting this as resistance to the message, so I stopped half way thru the CD and started over, but this time I stopped anytime my attention started slipping, and released on what I felt I was not wanting to hear .Thanks Delilah for your suggestion;I'll try that next time the issue comes up.

      I also did some releasing yesterday, on some irritation with the phrasing on CD18 about releasing physical pain/sensation. I realized this phrasing irritation has probably been present to a certain degree with every CD so far, and I released again this morning on this irritation, and probably need to do it again now
