My Dear Friends,
I’m so, so sorry; but I have not been so well again these last few days as I experienced a couple more allergic reactions. However this time we had no idea as to why or what caused them! The good news is I’m feeling ok again now, and, I’m trying to get my mojo back, and get off my backside and write again 🙂
Overthinking…..I guess most of us are guilty of this from time to time and many of us are guilty of doing it all the time!..So that got me to even more thinking…. “Is overthinking a problem”?….Doesn’t it protect us from harm?……In my experience, all overthinking does for us is cause us more grief and suffering!
I know I have done my fair share of overthinking, especially in these past few weeks since my anaphylactic shock and death experience….and certainly each time I have had another allergic reaction since then; my mind goes into turmoil, thinking, wondering, overthinking…’Will I go into anaphylactic shock again, will my heart stop again, will I die again?’……’What’s causing all these allergic reactions, is it safe for me to go outside my home, will I eat something or drink something that will bring me another allergic reaction’!…and on, and on the vicious cycle goes, robbing me of my life, striking me down once again with more worry!
So what can we do to stop this or at least calm this overthinking down? Well, I meditate A LOT 🙂
I find meditation helps me calm my mind, it take me to places I can rest my mind, my body, and my soul, places that take me away from my daily life, from my work, from the worries of my illness, my allergies and my suffering, places that I have learned to love and to respect, they are mine, truly mine and I am safe there.
So, if you suffer from illness, anxiety, depression or loneliness, please try meditation, it may take you a few times to get the swing of things, but trust me, the wait is certainly worth it and the benefits far outweigh the pain of learning 🙂
If you have any questions on meditation, or just need a little support on how to start, please let me know and I’m happy to help 🙂
Namaste with Love
Thank you for this. And I hope you feel better. Wishing you happiness and peace this holiday season. 🙂
Thank you D.G 🙂 Same to you and your family 🙂
Thank you. 🙂
I’m with you, the only way to get myself to keep from overthinking is to meditate. I feel like I have to grab hold of all those thoughts, wrap them up into a ball and put them away in a deep box, all before I can even begin to meditate. Hope you are feeling much better.
🙂 Thank you, and yes I’m feeling good today 🙂
Oh! Tell me about it dear Mark. 95% think and 5% do is me all over, the opposite to my granddaughter who is do and be damned with no thought at all at every level. There must be a happy medium somewhere. I am in England now while Eugene is still tidying up in Spain and I have to keep pinching myself as I can’t believe it!
Be safe and well dear Mark. Love, David
Congrats on the move David, hope all will turn out as you planned 🙂 Love to you all, Mark
The mind….it IS a great distractor Mark. But it does show both sides of the coin.
Not good the second reaction though, but hopefully you are past it and on a happier path 🙂
Love and light. Mark
It certainly does my friend 🙂 Each day is a new start for me Mark and one in which I am so grateful for :). Namaste, Mark
