Are You An Over-Thinker? This is For You.
by Tanaaz Chubb
I am a thinker. Correction. I am an over-thinker.
Maybe it is because of my Gemini rising. Maybe it is because my Moon is in Virgo.
Maybe it is just because.
I love to think. And think and think some more. I like to think so much that my thinking becomes a combination of therapeutic and detrimental all at the same time.
Kind of like that first glass of wine. One glass may be therapeutic after a long day, but 3 maybe 4, it starts to become detrimental to your health.
Am I alone?
I meet many thinkers on my path. Partly because like attracts like and partly because I love meeting people who think deeply and like to express deeper thoughts.
All of this is great, except when my thinking becomes detrimental.
What is detrimental thinking?
I sometimes feel that when I get into one of my thinking rampages that I have smoke or clouds of fog circling around my head. I can sometimes feel this fog rising up around me, blocking my third eye and making my head feel heavy.
Yes, my thinking and mental chatter can be powerful.
Can you relate?
Every thought carries with it a vibration and every time you think or allow your mind to run with chatter, you are actually creating a powerful stream of energy.
This energy carries its own vibration, which very quickly starts to paint and color the reality that you live in.
See, we are not dancing to the tune of the world, in fact it is the opposite. The world is dancing to our tune. Reality is painted based on what we are emitting from our vibration.
This means that mental clutter causes a cluttered life. This means that mental clutter causes indecision, stagnancy, sickness, a lack of motivation and even depression.
Our minds are so powerful that they can influence our mood, our life and the reality that we live in.
This is why it is so important to learn how to tame those thoughts and to shift your focus and awareness out of your mind and into your heart.
Everyone talks about following their heart, but what does this really mean? For a thinker, following your heart may seem somewhat foreign.
Following your heart is really about feeling your decisions and acting without the need to break things down again and again in your mind.
It is about turning off that ‘thinking portion’ of the brain and just switching into action mode.
Your heart or your feelings are then able to protect you and guide you to making the right decision, which is essentially the decision that feels good.
This definitely takes practice, but when you start to channel this way of thinking you not only feel freer and happier, but you also feel more motivated to make decisions and less caught up in the thoughts going through your mind.
Here are some tips and pointers to help you become less of a thinker and more of a feeler:
A mind that is stimulated doesn’t have time for annoying over-thinking, so work out how to channel this energy into something else beneficial.
When your thinking becomes therapeutic rather than destructive, you will feel:
