In a world that is dominated by trauma and fears of impending disasters you can be forgiven for thinking that the world is coming to an end. If you are a trader, you will only be too aware how the erratic intra day swings create havoc in your brain. If you knew how to create peace in your trading mind, your life would be much more enjoyable and your trading would improve too.
I hardly need to convince anyone of the truth of this who has traded for some time. I have worked with many professional traders over the years helping them to calm their over active trading minds and will share some techniques with you that work without fail.
Let’s first look at the three main reasons why you have failed to create peace in your trading mind. There are other issues too.
In this article I am going to deal with the things you can most easily fix, if you choose to. If you address these three issues you will give your overworked trading mind a heart start:
You worry about external events
Your environment is toxic
You lack the tools, or don’t apply techniques to create inner peace
When your inner world is in chaos you cannot produce calm in the outer world.
While you keep reacting to outside events, you are at best delaying positive change. When you live and work in a toxic environment your brain stops functioning as it should.
I could write books on why the world is in a state. You probably could too. The media is full of opinions, judgements, most of it negative. Focusing on the why’s will not help you become a better trader, a better entrepreneur, or simply have a more satisfying life.
Why? Because you have no influence on what goes on outside of your own brain.
Universal law states that you get what you focus on. While you focus on everything that’s wrong with the world, your trading, Donald Trump, or Hilary Clinton, you attract more reasons why you are helpless.
Accept that you cannot change the world.It’s the very first thing you can do to calm your overworked trading mind.
It isn’t your job to change the world. Your job is only to change yourself.
When you change yourself you also change the world.
Maybe this realisation will unburden your trading mind somewhat. It will reduce the worry a little bit.However, we are only dealing with one aspect of the issue:
In many years of working with professional traders I discovered that the effects from hours in front of the computer are very tough on the brain. The brain and the computer emit different frequencies which are incompatible with each other. Your brain will spend most of its time compensating for the mismatch in energy. This leaves you tired and drained.
When you neutralise the effect from EMF, (electro magnetic fields) from computers and other wi-fi equipment your brain can relax a little.
One great way of doing this is with guided meditation.
Make sure that your space is cleared regularly of negativity. Buildings have cell memory, just like people.
Ensure that your environment has clean energy and the meridians in the earth are clear.
Geopathic stress is a toxic energy that plagues all larger cities today. It is a direct by-product of EMF. These toxic energies, which are underground, in water cavities, running water and hollowed out areas, like under ground tunnels from mining activities and subways, cause major stress on the earth s mantle and on our bodies and minds. Geoipathic stress is easily cleared.
If you only implement these simple strategies you will find your creativity increases and inner harmony returns.
Most people think that they are victims of their circumstances, simply because they do not know how the universe works. They are unaware of how modern living is wreaking havoc with our bodies and our brains.
Next time you think that you are a bad trader, or you feel overwhelmed by life look at your environment first.
Ask yourself if you are using a guided meditation daily to calm your trading mind. The odds are that you are just living life in reaction mode. Isn’t it time that stopped and you started bringing peace and serenity back into your life?
