Have you ever been somewhere up really high and just wondered about jumping off and what would happen.
Or have you ever stood on the side of a train track and wondered about if you could jump in front of a train, or even what would happen if you pushed someone else off the platform ?
Maybe you have been driving a car and the idea has flashed into your head about driving straight into incoming traffic or off a bridge.
Sounds crazy doesn’t it. It all sounds quite scary. But if you have then you are not alone and you are not really going mad.
Here's my latest video that shows you exactly what is going on and why you don't need to worry about those thoughts. You can watch it right here...
So, what’s actually happening? Well, all of our thoughts have to come from somewhere. They are based on our experiences in life and what path we want to take as we move forward.
So, in order for us to decide what we want to do, what we want to happen ,we have to think about what we don’t want to happen.
Imagine that the dragon from game of thrones was Pink and fluffy and had rainbow coloured wings.
You don’t need me to show you a picture though do you? You can already imagine it for yourself.
You didn’t know you were going to think about a pink rainbow dragon but now you are thinking about one. I made you do it just like advertisers may make you think about things. Things that you didn’t know you wanted.
I really fancy some Pringles or a coke.. do you as well now?
So our unconscious mind is thinking of all sorts of things. It wants to keep us safe. This is so that we can rule them out and not do them. So, pretty much everyone may find they get thoughts that seem a bit random and even inappropriate
It’s just your brain thinking... do I want that or not? It’s a bit like if you start to wonder if you fancy your best friends wife..or husband. Or both! It doesn’t mean you are going to do anything. You are just processing everything and deciding what is the right path for you.
So of course this stuff can actually be really beneficial because it helps us to decide to step away from the platform or not to get to close to a really high edge. It keeps us safe.
Sometimes when we think about what we don’t want then it helps us to think about what we do want.
Spend more time thinking about the stuff you want to happen and then you can make that stuff more likely to happen.
So don’t fret about those weird thoughts. Just think about what you really want to do rather than what you don’t want to do and all will be great.
