The Mind Loops Blog: “Tough Time? A Easy Technique To Unlock a New Perspective” – May 2017
Going through something tough? Want to unlock a new perspective on the situation? Check out this video I shot on how to become an Alchemist of Adversity.
Our minds can get locked into a specific way of viewing something crummy we’re going through. That “tunnel vision” can lead to creating distressing Mind Loops. And Mind Loops only serve to further feed the heavy emotions and increase stress in your life. Not fun.
This is one of the “De-Story” techniques, and it truly helps shift the way you’ll look at a problem. A new perspective brings fresh air to the problem, allowing unforeseen possibilities, compassion (for yourself or others), and “reasons why” to arise – and even some “Ah-Ha!” answers on to how to deal with it.
Most importantly, it can help bring more peace to your thoughts and life.
Watch how to become an Alchemist of Adversity (actually try out the technique!) and see how you feel.
And please share your thoughts below! Because we can all benefit from hearing about your shifts.
To your happiness!

Give some tips ideas to change mind
Hi Hathjia, I’m so sorry to hear things are difficult. I understand, I have been there! What is important to understand is that when our dark thoughts/emotions/mood take over and become a daily HABIT, it creates a downward spiral. It is extremely important to do even small things every day to turn that around. When we are feeling depressed (or any unwanted emotion), it can feel hard to do the things we KNOW can help us. But this is the very moment we must use our will to do them! Even if it is just one thing every day that helps your mood.
So first, watch my video on techniques to stop negative thoughts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If_zPzSDuGg . Do your best to try to INTERRUPT the thoughts as you catch them coming up. (It can be tricky at first, but it gets easier the more you do it).
Second, MOVE YOUR BODY every day. Even if it’s just a walk around the block a couple of times during the day. Very important. (Even better if you can get into Nature – it’s clinically proven to help depression).
Third: Think of even just ONE THING that you feel grateful for, every day. Do your best to actually FEEL the gratitude in your heart/body, not just intellectually. It doesn’t have to be something big, it can be very small, like the smell of your coffee, or the song of a bird out the window.
Fourth: Here is a link to receive 10 days of easy ways to help lift your mood: http://vzzp2pzf.megaph.com/ . I know when we are depressed our energy is a lot lower. But try these out and see which one is EASIEST for you to do, even with lower energy.
If you do these things, you will begin to turn around the downward spiral you are experiencing, and start lifting your spirits.
I wish you all the best Hathija, and send you lots of healing energy!
