Thought Storms

Thought storms

Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor 

Thoughts creating storms…

We often talk in the Membership about thought storms, but what does this really mean?

A "Thought Storm" occurs when we become entrenched in our own thinking to the extent that we begin to believe and cling to all of our thoughts.

This can then bring physical and mental discomfort that we could describe as a storm. 

Our experience of thoughts can be very much like a storm.

As we are only ever feeling our thoughts, these 'thought storms' can feel fierce and fiery. The intensity of the thoughts we give all of our focus and attention to can start to feel very real.

We bring them to life via all of our senses.

However, also like a storm they always pass: there has never been storm anywhere ever in the history of storms that hasn’t passed or eased at some point.

This is the same for us experiencing our thinking. 

I watched my 18 month old daughter the other day as she was telling me words of things that had happened through the day. What she had eaten, who she had seen, what she had seen on the tv and so on.

It made me smile and she definitely wasn’t suffering, she seemed vey happy and content.

It reminded me:

It's the not the fact that we have thoughts that's the issue or causes suffering, its how we respond and what we do with them!

My baby wasn’t going over everything with judgment and therefore no storm was brewed.

She didn’t find herself saying "ooh I shouldn’t have eaten that extra yoghurt", or "I should have said no when mum offered a biscuit so I don’t get big thighs", and she wasn’t thinking how much she liked or didn’t like the people she spoke to or comparing herself to them… I think you get the picture!

We hold so much judgement and over analysis to the thoughts that we have at times that it creates a metaphorical storm that will pass as soon as we let go.

Are we overcomplicating mental health? 

The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all! 

Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief. 

Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
