To assist shutting down mental chatter and facilitate meditation, try one of these processes:
1. Close your eyes halfway and cross them. View and become aware of everything within your vision. Do not focus on any one object. The process of seeing everything and not focusing on any one thing overloads conscious thinking and allows for the chatter to stop.
2. Close your eyes and listen to all the noises surrounding you. The refrigerator hum, the 'whoosh' of silence, birds chirping; any and all sounds around you. Do not focus on any one sound. As noted above, the action of hearing all sounds but not focusing on any one, overloads conscious thinking and facilitates the shut down of mental chatter.
With either of these processes, also be aware of breathing and keeping it comfortably deep and regulated. With practice, the internal chatter will stop and complete meditation can be achieved.
Thought is deed. It has ramifications, a reaction, a result. Affirm thought through physical deed but do not underestimate the power of thought.

We have to remember, absolutely have to remember that when we read, see, hear a horror to send blessed thought, also known as love, to the situation we are reading, seeing, hearing about. It does not matter if the horror is a government overstepping, a child suffering, an animal tortured. We cannot waver, fall into anger, despair or pessimism. Wavering and pessimism are a lack of faith in self, anger and despair are expressions of fear. We have to absolutely know that we can change the tide of whatever event by our thought. This universe is predicated on energy.
