Monkey Mind or Wormtongue Ear

If you find it difficult to quieten your mind during meditation…

If you wake up and find it difficult to go back to sleep because your mind is racing…

If you look in the mirror and criticise your appearance or achievements…

If you give yourself a ‘hard time’…

Then You Are NOT in Control of Your Thinking

Monkey Mind is a Buddhist term meaning, unsettled; restless... A chattering out of control mind. But it could be worse... you could have: ‘Wormtongue Ear'.

I call it ‘Wormtongue Ear’ after the vile character from Lord of the Rings, Gríma Wormtongue.

Grima Wormtongue is the chief advisor to a King in the book and films: Lord of the Rings.

Wormtounge is really working to weaken the King and his kingdom… through lies and persuasion whispered into the Kings ear.

You see, worse than incessant chattering of Monkey Mind is Wormtongue Ear! An insidious internal dialogue anxious, worried, frightened or frightening, and that is self-destructive.

Usually it’s an internal dialogue that puts you down and limits you from achieving your dreams.

And Wormtongue Ear can even manifest as a negative internal dialogue you don’t consciously notice… so deep that it affects your self-esteem, confidence and More.

One of the reasons Om (Aum) or other mantras are chanted during meditations is because it quietens the internal dialogue and stops you from talking to yourself. When you are focusing on your breathing and chanting a sound there really isn’t any room left to critersise yourself.

The problem is this takes a lot of discipline, not to mention time.

Wormtongue Ear is abuse, it is subjecting yourself to negative self-hypnotic affirmations.

"If you say to yourself ‘It’s difficult to get up in the morning’, ‘It’s hard to cease smoking’, then you are already using hypnotic suggestions on yourself."  Dr Richard Bandler

    My negative voice keeps popping up telling me I’m not good enough, especially at work. I know my stuff but sometimes I start doubting myself and it saps my confidence for contributing in meetings. These techniques are great thank you John, might take some practice though 🙂

      Hey Lee-Ann, Awesome 🙂 this is the perfect example of how to use this. And you’re right on track… you do need to practice. Although in some situations once is enough… other times you may need to repeat the technique, then after a while your unconscious mind will simple stop ‘popping’ up that kind of negative internal dialogue.
