Fasting for our minds

Everyone has heard of fasting. The practice of taking a hiatus from food. Doing so has lots of beneficial effects on our bodies.
Mostly ridding our body of toxins.

What about ridding our minds of toxins?

Sound like a good idea?

Here, do this:
( I'm going to go into more detail on my other blog: )

Don't think a negative thought for seven straight days.

Can't do it?
Of course you can't... What this means is if a negative thought comes into your mind, let it go

Don't let a single negative thought stay in your mind for more than a moment or two.

Often when I hear people speak about meditating, they complain
that they can not concentrate.

Ok fair enough, do the following, this is like a visualization:

Picture a train, lets say it has almost a hundred cars...
You are on one side of the train tracks.
What you're focusing on, what you're meditating on is on the other side of the tracks...

A distracting thougt pops into your mind
instead of bitching and moaning that you've lost your place...

See the distraction as a passing railroad car.

Remember when you get stuck at a RR crossing, waiting for the long train to finish up?

you can still see the street, the cars on the other side of the train.

Get the picture?

So do it, do it right now
Seven consecutive days with no negative thoughts!

Ok,Ok everybodies mind wanders; here is an additional tactic you can use:

Picture your postal mail box.
Negative thought comes in.
don't open it.

If you want, write on it: "return to sender"

Put that damn thing back in the mail box and flip up the flag so the mail man/ mail person can send it back where it came from...

doesn't live here:)
