As human being often we are caught in a whirl of negative thoughts. Of course, we want to get rid of them because they do not make us feel any good.

Here a contemplative exercise that will hopefully help to get rid of them.

It is an emotional issue, so we have work on our awareness. First try to visualize a plurality of anvils. The anvil is heavy and tough to lift, like our burdens. Think that each anvil represents one of your burdens.

Now visualizes one of the anvil lifted and taken away from your eyesight by a small helium balloon. It is important that you take your time to see the balloon slowly disappear. Repeat the exercise for all of the other anvils or burdens.

Mr. D. Tail tried the exercise and can happily confirmed that it worked.
