How To Get Clear In Your Mind

We’ve all heard the stories about how we’ve got stuck in our thoughts; in our head.

When people ask me to tell them how to clear their heads they want to know what I do so they can do it too. I’ve never really had a good answer, although I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about it. I usually recommend getting clear by letting the thought pass by itself.

The truth is that most of the time, we don’t need to clear our heads – we can usually just put it all out of our minds and let it all flow away.

But then the question starts to arise, how do you go about letting something go? When is the right time? How do you go about not caring what happens in your mind?

And the last thing that people seem to find really hard is that once it comes out of their mind, once it’s out and it’s just there, is it really gone or does it still have a lot of power over them?

I’ve thought on this a lot and I thought this morning about something that happened recently that I thought I’d share with you.

The night before I flew over to Sydney to play the Superbowl with the Cowboys. A while back we went to a restaurant near mine and we stopped by my girlfriend’s house to pick up a few things from there. The night was just perfect, the sun had set, the birds were singing, she had brought some hot chocolate from the store and we were relaxing around watching her dozing off.

Then my phone started buzzing with calls; three at about 2.15am, two at 2.45am and one at 3.04am. I grabbed my phone and was about to take a message to leave it with my girlfriend when I heard the alarm start to ring. I picked up my phone and saw that my girlfriend’s parents had been calling trying to wake her up.

I jumped up and got up as quickly as I could and ran to the door to try and open it, it wasn’t there yet and she was still asleep. Then I felt a burning sensation in my head. I was trying to figure out the best way to get this burning feeling out of my head, but before I could figure it out, I was falling back and falling to the floor, my body hitting the floor. The burning feeling then spread throughout my body and I remember feeling like my body was on fire and I thought that I was about to pass out.

This is an image of how I felt while I was laying on the floor – the burning sensation was spreading throughout my body like a slow spreading fire. I couldn’t think straight at this point, I just thought that I was going to pass out and I had this burning feeling all over my body.

I’ve never felt anything like this in my life, and it was really really scary.

As time went on, I tried to stand back up, but I couldn’t, it was so hard to walk because there was like a burning feeling around me that just wouldn’t go away.

This image on the left, is the first time that I felt this burning sensation on the floor, the second time was after I got back to my feet and the third. When I was walking back to my seat the burning sensation moved and moved and moved.

Finally I just gave up and lay back down. I was laying on the floor for a week and a half after the game, which was really scary.
