Thought download preface


In this months beginners call Martha talked about doing downloads prefacing each thought with “I notice that my brain wants to tell me that” (I’m paraphrasing but it was something like this).
I tried it this way today and it was helpful. I noticed my mind was more willing to reveal the thoughts I was thinking, with that extra level of detachment or observation present.
I’m curious to hear more about this – is that what most coaches recommend? It’s the first time I recall hearing it this way.
Sidenote – it felt too lengthy to begin each written thought with “I notice that my brain wants to tell me that…” so instead I wrote that preface across the top of the page and just recited it mentally before writing each new thought.
Would love any feedback/further thought on this. Thank you!
