Before you conclude that I am a jerk, please let me talk. I know that right after you read my blog title, you probably had jumped out of your chair with your head on fire and respond: My fault? No way, of course not: It’s his fault, her fault, my parent's fault, my boyfriends, my girlfriend, my ex’s fault, my boss, my sister, my neighbors, my teacher’s faults, my stupid client, the guy who hit my car faults, the government fault, global warming faults…and so on. The list could be endless. It would be entertaining to keep going just to see how far it could go, no? But you get the point by now, don’t you?
We can point an infinity outer and apparently very valid reasons for our disgraces and dissatisfactions, and we will be missing the number one factor that is creating it, and with it our chance to change it:
WE CREATE OUR REALITIES

In this week when most countries are starting to reopen their doors in the middle of the coronavirus outbreak, we may be facing a lot of emotions.
For some folks it is like wuuuuuho, we are finally free and is like coming back from a long vacation. (I have heard that a couple of times): Where should we go to celebrate? And they are planning already their next awesome holidays taking advantage of the low rates on air and hotel fares.
 For some others, the lockdown has been anything but a vacation. And can have been facing a lot of challenges as taking care of their children, doing all the cleaning of their houses by themselves, struggling with pending couple issues worsen for the fact of being lock with their mate for long periods of time. Or on the other end, you can encounter yourself in an isolated place where you face all kinds of…

What is causing my disordered way of thinking? In our previous entrance: How to stop the noises in my head? (You can click here to go and read it if you have not already), we reviewed 3 ways to stop the noises in our heads. The goal is to create coherence in our thoughts, and to gain control over our own mind, not to clear our minds becoming empty heads. However, that makes me wonder why the “simple mind” kind of person always seems to be happier than those who overthink, overanalyze, and overdo. It appears to me that having nothing in the head has been wrongly miss-viewed. Jokes aside, the question here is: what is causing my noise? Why my thoughts keep messy? It might be the result of bad habits that I had learned a…

How to stop the noises in your head / Cómo detener los ruidos en tu cabeza

CLICK AQUI PARA IR DIRECTO AL CONTENIDO DE LA ENTRADA EN ESPAÑOL How to stop the noises in your headSomething that was a real game-changer for me was the time when I managed to stop the noises in my head. Notice that I said NOISES, not VOICES. If you have voices in your head, this article is not going to help you that much and you should probably go to a doctor. (Although I came across very interesting and hopeful studies on that subject a few days ago, and I can write a post about it later on. So stay tuned, don’t lose hope.)
Ok, back to the noises. I am talking about that "c ha c h a r a", the ongoing and everlasting monologue in your head, the repetitive thoughts on the same subjects, the stories of all that has happened and all that should happen, blah blah-- the automatic thinking that many of us have.


For me, that was JUSTE  X  H  A  U  S  T  I  N  G.!
I had a friend years ago who used to refer to this continuous chatter in the mind as, “The crazy woman in the house, whic…
