Daily Meditation – Feel as Good as You Would…

Lately I’ve been on a quest. I notice all the times throughout the day I crave drugs and alcohol, and I wonder: Why can’t I feel that good on my own? Why do I need this thing outside of me to feel better? I know from the books I read that it IS possible to feel good regardless of circumstance, but how the eff do you actually DO that in daily reality?

I love different techniques like silent counting and repeating mantras to shake my attention off of negative thoughts and cravings. But I always want to get the benefits of counting (it’s easy to stay focused on the simple task) AND the benefits of thinking a mantra (I’m actually creating new thought patterns!). So today’s technique for feeling like I’m on drugs without being on drugs is to count mantras… (I was inspired by a blog post of Philip Rosedale’s on silent counting that he learned from his monk friend who counted mantras…).

1 I love myself. 2 I love myself. 3 I love myself. 4 I love myself. 5 I love myself. 6 I love myself. . . and so on. Sustained focus and a positive thought works well enough as a mental opiate that I can return to my natural state of feeling good... and I remember, life is just for fun!

Feel as Good as You Would If You Were Taking Morphine (transcript)

Breathe in and raise your vibration!
Breathe out and release your resistance!

Breathe in and raise your vibration!
Breathe out and release your resistance!

Relax your body.

Breathe in and open up to receiving
Breathe out and relax your body

Breathe in and make peace with what is
Breathe out and let go of your worries

Whatever you’re worried about, can be solved with a little mental discipline!

Breathe in and step into this present moment
Breathe out and wake up in the dream

Allow yourself to feel open. Let yourself receive. Decide to listen to what life is giving you, to what life is telling you right now.

Breathe in and lighten up because life is not serious!
Breathe out and surrender! It’s not up to you!

A good quote from Eckhart Tolle is this: “My secret is, that I don’t mind what happens.” Decide to not mind what happens, because you feel so good just being alive!

Breathe in and decide to feel good regardless of your circumstances!
Breathe out and decide: I don’t mind what happens.

How can you get to that good-feeling place, where it doesn’t matter what happens? Where it doesn’t matter what could go wrong, because you feel so good? I think it’s why we like drugs like morphine. Those kind of drugs make us feel good no matter what’s happening. But what if we could do that ourselves!

Breathe in and step into your power!
Breathe out and know that you can feel as good as you would if you were taking morphine, right now, because you choose so! Because you stood up to your thoughts! Because you have mental discipline!

Breathe in and stand up to your thoughts!
Breathe out and begin to feel empowered!

You can be your reason for feeling good and it’s really easy: all you have to do is stop thinking. Then you return to your natural state of feeling good.

Breathe in and step outside of your mind
Breathe out and let those thoughts go

To occupy your mind, to get away from that compulsive thinking, to step outside of your mind and transcend thought, try this mantra!

1 I love myself 2 I love myself 3 I love myself 4 I love myself 5 I love myself 6 I love myself . . . and so on and on until you get to 10,000! Counting and repeating “I love myself” keeps your mind engaged with an activity so you don’t get lost in your thoughts, and you’re also constantly sending yourself love.

Breathe in and send yourself love
Breathe out and feel so relieved because you have the solution!

Sometimes a mantra is just hard to hang onto because our thoughts drift. And sometimes silent counting is just so boring! Try combining the two to keep your focus strong, and to be nourishing yourself—loving yourself—revealing the fact that you already love yourself! You already love your life! And you don’t mind what happens!
