In part two of this class, we explore some of the themes in Likutey Moharan 5 from the main LM, the Kitzur, the 50th Gate, and the idea of chametz of the mind. Don’t let your mind ferment!
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov explains the power of our thoughts, and how important it is to have “wise thoughts” on the New Year. Begin the New Year the best possible way with thoughts of positivity, awe, and connection to Hashem.

From BRI Breslov.org YouTube videos:
There are several types of Jewish meditation, some rooted in kabbalah, some based in prayer. Rebbe Nachman of Breslov is known for reviving hitbodedut, a talking-prayerful meditation in which a person talks openly to God about whatever is on his mind and in his heart. Hitbodedut is central to living a life in which one is connected to his Creator.
But Rebbe Nachman also encouraged people to meditate by using analytical and constructive thought, to reflect on one’s life, and to envision a more elevated future. Sometimes referred to as hitbodenut (which is also the name of a kabbalistic type of meditation), this kind of focused thought will enhance your teshuvah, your spiritual growth, and your day to day life. The power of thought and inner vision can change your reality. Chaya Rivka Z. explains.

In the phone class on how to take control of our thoughts, you asked us to choose lines from Tehillim (Psalms), the siddur (prayer book), or even our own thoughts. We would use these as “replacement thoughts” anytime we’re having a negative thought.
I know what kinds of negative thoughts I have frequently. But I can’t decide what kinds of thoughts I need to replace them with. I’ve looked in books and tried to write my own, but it’s not working.
I want to stop the repetitive negative worried thoughts I have every day. Please help me – I need some new thoughts!
Aren’t there any Breslov sayings I could use?

I love the Change Your Thoughts; Change Your Life workshop because it gives easy, practical Breslov tools you can use to make your life better.
But I’m always up for making things even simpler.
