Silent Mind – Turning the Monkey MInd Off in Holistic Healing!

Silent Mind illustrationNancy Smeltzer, MFA

I don’t know about you, but in the past I was walking around with quite a collection of naysayers in my mind. “You can’t do that!” “Why bother, it won’t work!” and the ever popular “What’s the point?” They can be pretty self-defeating, and can keep us frozen as to how to move forward. However, with practice and some well-chosen Gaia commands that I’ve been given, the voices can be turned off. (NOTE: Gaia for me is the Divine Feminine, and she is constantly giving us commands to help us move through life, especialy pre-natally.)

In Buddhist traditions, this mind chatter is known as the monkey mind. If you’ve ever heard a bunch of monkeys calling out, it can be quite noisy. Many people experience this phenomena when they try and meditate. They’ll start off with a quiet mind, but as the session progresses, their minds start to wander off into other thoughts. The person leading the session will usually reassure the restless mind person that it’s natural to do that and to just notice the distractions, and then go back to the quiet mind. That ability to return to the quiet, or what I call the “deafening roar of silence”, takes a lot of practice to do so, sometimes years, so many people give up on meditation all together.

While there are hundreds of types of meditation, all of them effective for some people, I find that it’s much easier to turn off the cause of the voices first. Most of the voices are picked up in early childhood, and are our interpretations of what was “taught” to us, sometimes deliberately, sometimes just by observations. If you were to do regression therapy, you could go back incidence through incidence when that belief was reinforced, until finally you could reach the beginning of that “voice” for this lifetime. This process also can take years to get to those initial stages when a belief was instilled in us.

I prefer to use these Gaia commands that I spoke of in the beginning of this posting that are given to me by the Divine Feminine so that I can teach them to others . In the space of about 20 minutes, with my help, a person can complete them. The commands were first heard by each of us when in the final stages of development for the egg and sperm that made us. Since the egg and sperm haven’t joined at that point, there’s a set for the egg to clear and a set for the sperm. Depending on how you perceive the voices in your head as being masculine or feminine, one side of the commands is usually harder to clear than the other. That’s where I come in to help with energetic boosts to get the commands as cleanly cleared as can be done that day. Then as always, there’s a homework assignment to practice a few times /week to clean up the remaining smudges of the voices.

I didn’t realize how noisy it was in my head until the “naysayer voices” got turned off. It’s like watching a really loud sports event on TV and then hitting the mute button. The freedom is rather amazing as you’re not then walking around with all of these auditory negativity weighing you down. If this process of clearing your mind is something that you’d like to experience, then please contact me at and let’s set you free from those annoying voices that hold you back from experiencing life at its fullest.

What are some of your experiences with mind chatter? What have they kept you from doing in your life?

About Nancy Smeltzer

I'm passionate about long distance spiritual and alternative healing, having had a successful practice now for over ten years. My clients work with me over the phone and on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams. Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." My recent works have images that are based on what I see when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper! -The Official Google + site for Nancy Smeltzer
