Can we control our mind? How to control the negative thoughts? How to develop mind for our success? Sometimes thoughts come beyond control. So what is the best way to bring peace and stablity in life? - Such questions may also come in your mind. Many ask for the solution. Hence here is our detailed explanation, answer and guidance with a shared personal experience.
To begin with I would like to add my personal view cum experience that our mind is a great magical gift imparted to us by Creator. It has tremendous power to materialize our wish like an Alladin lamp or Kamdhenu cow mentioned in our Scriptures . Since it is a store house of thoughts it works what type of thoughts we feed and accordingly it creates our destiny. Hence, it is rightly said Our destiny is what our thought make or As we think so we become.
You have rightly identified that it is due to old sanskars. Sanskars are formed out of habit and habit is formed out of repetitive thoughts and actions. Once the habit is created either good or bad, it is difficult to break. Now, since your are Baba’s Child you must be very well aware of the hard sanskars formed due to vikarmas perfomed in our last 63 births from Dwarpar yuga to Kaliyuga. Now, the only way to stop these negative sanskars which you have mentioned is to change it to positive or elevated sanskars.
But remember, it need not to be suppressed but transformed. Just as a pot of muddy water is replaced with the clean water if the tap water is continuously flowing, the old muddy thoughts of our pot which is brain will get replaced if we go on pouring positive and elevated thoughts . For BK’s Baba has given us beautiful Swaman practice and 5 Swarup abhyas. If we practice it regularly and sincerely, I am sure it will benefit you after tirelessly continuing it for minimum 3 months. Any thing if practiced for 3 months gets absorbed in our blood and becomes an habit.
I had a similar problem before coming in Gyan as my mind was beyond control. At that time I tried to channelize my thought energies in reading spiritual books and making notes of it. Then after coming to Gyan I started churning murlis and writing it segregating it topic wise. After Baba gave the practice of 5 swaroop, I have been religiously practising it which has really helped to bring mind under control and keep it calm in any adverse situation. Recently, Baba had made me to prepare a project on 10 different methods to practice 5 forms which you can get from the link. It is really very effective and beneficial. It will try to put a break on the thoughts and try to bring you mind on 5 various forms. Besides traffic control practice is also very effective which I follow regularly.
Lastly, one must not stop mediation with a fear of thinking negative. We must face it through our will power. Once our positive thoughts and aura increases these will go on subsiding. Besides, we have baba’s shakti and support in addition. So be positive and hopeful. If you are hopeful and do not loose your zeal and enthusiasm ( Umang & Utsah ), half the battle is won and with the practice and faith on baba I am sure you will won the battle in few months only.
