Mind & Emotional Nurturing Cloud 1_edited.jpg


It is simple! Your thoughts create your feelings and actions. And when you choose to dislike another ‘human being,’ you will feel disturbed. You have decided to consume yourself with the distasteful feeling of resentment, despair, and disgust. You create a psychological block that contributes to #stress, #anxiety, or even #depression.

How helpful are these unpleasant feelings?

‘Being forgiving' is one way to release these distasteful sensations that motivate acts of hostility.

Whatever you can do to discourage the spiteful solutions to issues that sometimes lead to battle has implications for the global human race now and in the future.

You owe it first to #forgive yourself and then forgive others.

It all starts from the inside. Your mind, your thought, your ‘doing.’

  3. Find your daily HERBS (Happiness, Energy, Resilience, Balance, Self-sufficiency)

Hello Doer,

How are you 'being' today?

In this blog, you will find out what you are capable of doing.

Doing, in this case, means intentional thinking.


Unbalanced Doing

This is when you believe your unhelpful thoughts about NOT being able to think about what you want to do and make decisions about the smalls steps to follow up.

Understandably, your ‘being mind’ is claiming you lack the skills to apply your human intelligence, the attention or opportunity required to learn, or do what you want. This part of your brain honestly doesn’t know. It perceives learning new skills as a threat, especially if the result is not immediate pleasure. It can be reactive, impatient, and wants a fast outcome.

The Being Mind

Okay, maybe you lack individual skills for now, and you are willing to develop them. As a baby, you learned how to walk, a new language, and other things you had no idea you could do while your thinking brain (doing mind) was still developing.

In observing my daughter, it is clear that the ‘Being’ mode is the state you mostly were as a baby. What you did most of that time as a baby was listening, observing, and accepting your thoughts in the present moment. Not knowing the name or meaning for what you might be experiencing helps you to be open to learning and neutral about what it is that you were interested in learning while approaching them with curiosity. You paid attention and might have enjoyed the process while uncertain what the result would be. This gives you a feeling of courage and confidence without being judgemental about your potential.

Balancing Being and Doing

The ‘being mind’ is mostly used as a child, and as you start to learn to think (do). The ‘being mind' can learn and get used to taking shortcuts while the ‘doing mind’ is developing. Through this process, the being mind drives into doing mode, making judgments with no or little evidence. Most individuals develop the habit of unbalanced doing, which can make them FEEL like they are powerless about their thoughts, while believing their unhelpful thoughts, avoid learning new skills, and give up.

But thinking about it logically with the evidence that others can access helpful thoughts the majority of the time while experiencing pleasant emotions. YOU KNOW YOU CAN! There is so much a child can do with their developing ‘doing mind,’ and abundance of possibilities as adults, once the brain has fully developed.

Whatever you want to become, to be, or to do is created by your thought. Your thought creates your feeling and action. If you're going to ‘be able,’ ‘be talented,’ and ‘capable of possessing’ any useful and productive skills, in feeling the way you want, accessing and changing your thoughts; first you want to learn to ‘BE’ and then balance your being with your ‘doing.’

Do you want to learn to think and feel the way YOU want?

Hello Doer,

How are you ‘being’ today?

In this blog, you will find out:

  1. Exactly what you are doing when you are ‘being.’

  2. How to access your thoughts and;

  3. How to silence your thoughts by ‘being.’


This is when your ‘being mind' is in a doing mode. This leads to thinking errors that can trigger the fight, flight, or freeze response, releasing stress hormones in the body. Understandably, the 'being mind' is known for slipping into doing mode in protecting you and ensuring your existence. The lack of skills to identify, access, and change these thoughts can cause you to do most things and act from a state of emotional agitation.

Accessing Your Thoughts

Your thoughts are mental images. Either present or imagined. Your assumptions, beliefs, and opinions are forming the sounds that come within you.

Both the mental pictures and noises are known as your thoughts, which you can identify and access. As a human, you are a thinking and behavioral being (A Doer). In using the cognitive-behavioral model (Your thoughts create your feelings and actions), when you are ‘being,’ you are observing your thoughts, either internally or externally, and feeling neutral in stopping your thoughts from controlling you.


What exactly are you doing when you are ‘BEING’?


Being is when the mind is intentionally quiet. It is the moment you silence your mind, are fully present, and are ready to experience your existence. It is a continuous and conscious process. Sometimes, it can be challenging to observe the mental images in the mind simply; or unlearn what has been sensed or proven to be a ‘fact’ without switching on the sound (making judgments). However, learning to switch off the mental sound is the first step in learning to ‘BE.’

How to ‘BE.’ Silencing your Thoughts.

I believe there are 2 ways to approach how to detach yourself from your thoughts.

  1. Turn off the Visual Imagery

  2. Turn off the Auditory Imagery

You can purposely switch off the mental images and sounds, using three simple steps. The process requires focused attention, using controlled deep, slow breaths, and a body scan. It isn’t magic as It requires some mental power, especially if you are used to the Habit of Unbalanced Doing.

Turn off the Visual Imagery

  1. Intention: Set your intention. What do you want to achieve? To change the image in your mind.

  2. Attention: What is the image? Identify the image.

  3. Permission: Allow yourself to think blank on purpose gently. This can be thinking into the void. A plain black or white image will suffice.

Alternatively, you can just observe the mental pictures. Stripping all meanings, labeling, titles, categorizing, judgments, and complaining off what you are thinking. This can be more challenging but possible, like a newborn child that has no meaning for everything.

Turn off the Auditory Imagery

The same process applies to turning off the mental sound.

  1. Intention: Set your intention. What do you want to achieve? To quiet your mind.

  2. Attention: Give attention to the sound when identifying what you want to intrude.

  3. Permission: Allow yourself to interrupt gently. Intentionally talk to yourself, switching on your blank imagery, and applying meaning. Use a statement such as ‘Just Being,’ ‘That is Enough!’ or ‘STOP!’

The two tips work simultaneously. It depends on your situation, and physiology as these are interconnected with your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Importantly, for this to work, you have to ensure that there is no exposure to real danger or physical harm.

Balancing Being and Doing

Being is not about feeling positive or negative. Being is a mental process that requires you to gently interrupt the unknown part of the mind from its involuntary and undesired ‘Doing.’

It is a feeling of neutrality, a way of living that requires intentional balanced way of thinking.

It helps removes psychological blocks that create unpleasant feelings such as fear, anger, and anxiety in allowing creative thinking and productive behaviours.

When you are BEING, you are effectively saving mental energy, calming the emotional center of your brain while resting your mind.
