This could be me… πŸ˜„

Janey of Cupid Or CatsΒ tweeted something about insomnia and it reminded me of something my daughter once sent to me. Really, sometimes waking up at night, the smallest thought kept up can grow to a huge issue and keep you awake for the rest of the night!

That is the worst time I feel for those thought gremlins to chip away.. What I do now if a niggle or an event that has played upon my mind jumps up in the middle of the night.. I imagine some brightly coloured wrapping paper, as I wrap the thought up in it.. I tie it in a ribbon and post it to the Universe to deal with..
I then, choose from a row in my mind another present.. I unwrap it, and in it I focus upon a happy event in my memory.. ( it took a while to perfect it ) but once you train your mind, sleep soon follows πŸ˜€

That’s an awesome way to deal with things that keep haunting us. I hope that many read it. I will keep this in mind once I am pondering about such situations which bother me. What keeps me awake lately is more the thoughts of what the next day holds when I know I have to face some tasks or when something comes to my mind I mustn’t forget. It often works when I imagine a plain white notebook with a pen. An unwritten story… that clears my mind and head and supports to detach from the pondering.
Thank you again for adding your trick which is really good!! πŸ’–

πŸ™‚ yes, learning to wrap up those negative thoughts with love and care as you parcel it up, tie with a pretty ribbon bow in your head and then ask the Universe to deal with it as you use an imaginary post box.. Works for me.. Especially as I often get hung up not on personal issues as much as the suffering around the world, especially if they involve children.. There is nothing I can do. Yet our minds acts like recorders replaying perhaps scenes or snippets we came across, that bother me..
I have over the years now got favourite memories stored in little boxes lol, in my head that I choose.. For instance last night something was whirring around about 4 am when I woke up.. I chose a blue box, unwrapped it and remembered when my Son was small and I was learning him to swim.. Little tricks like that then take the anxiety out of the original thought and sleep soon arrives πŸ™‚

This is true. There are so many sad things we cannot do anytjing about and still we cannot let go. I love your idea of opening a joy box instead to put the mind at peace. Such great advice, Sue πŸ’– thank youπŸ’–
