Code to Quiet the Mind

Code helps to slow down the thinking process and optimally quiet the mind

Code to quiet the mind is my favorite that I use every day in my meditations. It helps to slow down the thinking process and optimally quiet the mind. The code is the following:

 5 – 5,5 – 5,1

Pronounced as “five”, short pause, “five, five”, short pause, ” five, one”.

The code can be used in many situations, for example:

  • in the beginning of the meditation (out loud) or during meditation (silently) when you want to stop mind chatter; 

  • at night if you are unable to go to sleep or wake up in the middle of night because your mind is preoccupied with thoughts, worries, anxiety. First, say the code for safety and protection several times and then the code to quiet the mind as many times as you need to slow down thinking and go back to sleep; 

  • at work, if you find yourself unable to concentrate on a project because you are tired or worried about things outside of work. So again, say first code for safety and protection (3 times), and then code to quiet the mind several times, breathing in-between; it will help to clear your mind from disturbance and concentrate on the task;

  • to get clarity as to why you experience pain, depression, anxiety, mood swings, etc. You can go into silence in meditation, and ask questions like “Why I am having this experience? What is my learning about having it? What is attached to it?”.  Then silently say the code to quiet the mind several times and listen to the answer within. Trust what you hear first and do not take a second guess! 

There might be more situations where you can use the code depending on your experience and willingness to try it.
