Catch The Thought

Overcome mental blocks and solve challenges.

The Catch The Thought Method helps you become an observer of your thoughts, preventing emotions and the flow of thoughts from taking over. Through structured self-reflection, you'll gain insights, find solutions, and release mental blocks. While benefits may be immediate, fully integrating this process into your life could take multiple sessions. Revisit this guide as often as you need.

1. What thought or problem is most prominent in your mind right now? 

Briefly describe this thought or concern. Listen to yourself without judgment and identify what stands out.

2. What emotions and feelings are associated with this thought?

Reflect on your inner experience in a factual, detached way. What specific emotions arise as you focus on this thought? And where in the body do you feel sensations? 

3. Ask yourself: What is this thought about? What happened? Why did it happen? Who is involved? 

Explore the context and details surrounding this thought or problem. Gaining clarity on the specifics makes it easier to recognize solutions and connections.

4. Brainstorm potential solutions or insights related to this thought. 

What enlightenments arise as you reflect? Don't worry if a complete solution doesn't emerge immediately. This method is a process, and new perspectives will evolve over time.

5. Summarize the key aspects of this thought and any steps forward. 

Capture the essence of your reflection. If solutions are elusive, practice accepting the situation as it currently stands. If you can't control the solutions, accept them by devaluing them. Revisit step 3, erase/strike out everything, as it doesn't affect you, and allow these emotions and thoughts to exist without judgment. They will eventually fade.

Celebrate any insights or progress you've made.
