As a child, and not knowing I was dealing with anxiety, or why I struggled with bad thoughts meant I continued to deal with both. As an adult, I began to use a mantra to free my mind from bad thoughts.
My mantra, ‘Manah trayate iti mantrah’ means a mantra which is brought to mind again and again. The mind has to become the mantra. The mind has to be filled with the mantra; once that happens the worry is taken away.
My spiritual beliefs have also always been instrumental in how I see life, but because I live with anxiety and I must include my neurological difficulties as part of that, it is easy for me to go back to that place, particularly if I’m struggling with issues that aren’t easily resolved.
I believe our lifestyle strongly influences how and what we think about; our lifestyle is also instrumental in us being able to take away any concerns and worries, so that we can live our lives more positively.
Negative or bad thoughts increase our fear and worry. Continually accessing those thoughts means you will be more able to change and move those thoughts away.
