You are NOT your Mind; take steps to get out of your mind and back into your life.
My mind has taken a hold of me again.

It happens, from time to time, but over the years it has lessened.

So what did I do to overcome my crazy mind?

I checked in with my Head Center.  

Before I get into what that means let's take a step back and see the role mind plays in your design.  So, stick with me until the end because I do have some tips for you!

In Human Design we are taught that the mind is NOT the driving force in our lives, but we have been conditioned for millennia to think that it is. This is because for a time it was. The 7 centered beings who came before us were driven by their minds, they were designed to make logical decisions, and follow outer authority.

But for us 9 centered beings this is no longer the case, we are designed to be directed by our own authority which does not reside in the mind.

There are two centers in the Human Design Bodygraph that operate the mind: Head & Ajna.  They work together.  

The Head Center is designed to create mental pressure to think and ask questions, the Ajna is designed to process those questions and come up with answers.  But, when we get caught up in all of that and follow our minds down one rabbit hole after another trying to answer all of our questions and the questions of others it creates mental turmoil and takes you away from your life.

In this book, "The Power of Now", Eckhart Tolle was asked:

"What is the greatest obstacle to experiencing this reality?"

His Response:

"Identification with the Mind, which causes thought to become compulsive. Not to be able to stop thinking is a dreadful affliction, but we don't realize this because almost everybody is suffering from it, so it is considered normal"

He goes on to explain more and it is quite insightful.  If you feel like your Head center overtakes your life and brings you more distress I highly recommend this book as a resource for deconditioning and to help you gain perspective that will bring your Head and Ajna centers back into alignment.

(yes this is an amazon link and I do get commissions, but the small percentage I get does add up and helps me to support my family!)

It really is the mind that takes you out of your reality and causes so much suffering in life.

So when this happens to me, I stop and I check in with my Head Center.

I ask myself questions:
  • I'm I thinking about things that don't really matter?
  • Is this really my questions to resolve?
  • What happens if I never get the answer to this question?
  • Does this question even matter?
  • What triggered this doubt and confusion?
The point is not to get answers to any of these questions above but to bring your awareness to how the Head and Ajna centers are operating.

Once I've brought myself back, I take a few deep breaths and notice the world around me and the room I'm in.  I come back to the present.

The above practices will help you!

I'm currently working on a course all about the Head Center and how to keep it in alignment so stay tuned and I'll keep you posted when that is available.

Until then, breath yourself back into the present moment, you life is waiting.

with love,
