Thought Control 101: The Cosmic Baseball


Here is my interpretation of a thought control technique as shown to me by the Archangel Michael in one of my most vivid and inspiring out of body experiences yet.

I call this one the "Cosmic Baseball". The beauty of this exercise is that it's simple. If your visualization skills are weak, it will help improve them as well. I have spent a majority of my life with an overly active thought process. From as far back as I can recall my thoughts have buzzed around in my mind relentlessly. Plagued with worries, what ifs, impossible questions, damning self judgment and uncensored judgment of others. My mind found no rest, leading to many sleepless nights and great stress. This exercise will train anyone to silence those wild thoughts and send them back from whence they came. Take a stand and reclaim the brilliant mind that the Good Lord gave you! Find total peace within and without.

Find some time alone when you begin this exercise and start with eight or so deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. Stop and take notice of what's been running through your mind over the last hour. What thoughts are predominant right now? Take a moment to realize that all of our thoughts stem from preconceived judgments of people, places and things we come across. These judgments are fabricated by our EGO (Edging God Out) based on the fear of what we don't know about that person, place or thing that comes into our path. Therefore these thoughts are not based in fact but are pure illusion. Are you with me? Now as you stand or sit become aware of the next thought that enters your mind, only this time as it comes into your thought field, reach up into the air as though to catch the thought like a baseball. At that same moment vocalize the action with a "ha" or some release of sound. Now for just a brief second hold the thought in your hand like you own it and with your best pitch, throw the thought back out into the Universe like a cosmic baseball. Again vocalize as you release the "ball" with a "hi-ya!" or some such sound. Set yourself up for the next thought that enters and repeat.

I did this a few times a day, a few minutes at a time. At first my physical movements and sounds were big and exaggerated it felt silly and I kept it out of public for obvious reasons. After two days those motions and sounds became smaller and smaller. By the fourth and fifth day the movement and sound began to really internalize so I started practicing the technique in public. As I practiced over the seven days or so I noticed there were fewer thoughts entering my mindscape. I found myself only having to deal with a few thoughts a minute as opposed to a full out multi angle attack! On or around the seventh day I experienced something for the first time ever. Total Silence. It was so quiet up there at first that it felt loud... And then peace to follow. Peace. I completely turned off my mind like a tap that had run full blast for 27 some odd years. It changed my life and my thinking. It boosted everything for me and continues to do so knowing that I have conquered and reclaimed that which has been mine from the beginning.

When you use a physical motion with a sound and you are working toward bettering yourself you involve the body, mind and spirit. You encourage the Body, Mind and Spirit to work in unison harnessing a great force within. In time as the exercise becomes automatic this force will take over allowing in only those thoughts which we need. For a good stretch I just walked around thinking about absolutely nothing, pitching every single one of those thoughts back out there. I was on a thought vacation and I loved it. Do yourself a favor, take a thought vacation.

Good technique to calm down a thought. However, I think each person could create their own way so it is not a strict or rigid method. Quantum pause is also a good technique.

Very good reading and very helpful. For many people who have trouble to turn there mind off, to sleep at night. Thanks for this story.

This really is a good technique, I've been doing a similar technique (I'll 'inhale' my thoughts, exhale them, and try not to let them come back in) for a about 14 years. I am going to try being verbal about it, it makes a lot of sense. I find it helps me to initially grab complete thought categories (i.e. Work) and then whittle it down to the details particularly in my mind that day (i.e. A particular experience that day). Being able to have peace of thought is so important to our lives.

I've been reading a book about how to still your mind, it's titled, The Power Of Now. I'll try your technique also, it seems so much easier. Thanks for the info.
