Take your life off Autopilot- Kundalini Yoga 6.15pm Tuesday 26 Sept @ The Om Space

transitionWe have all experienced reading a few lines or in fact pages in a state of automatic pilot and not being able to recall any of it. This is our body’s clever way of saving fuel. Our conscious brain is a gas guzzling high powered machine when we concentrate, for example like learning a new language. To be more efficient our subconscious brain takes over, it looks at what we are experiencing now and sees if it looks familiar with a previous experience. If it does, it assumes that the experience is the same as yesterday and behaves in the same way. It creates a blue print of your daily life and feeds you this reality again and again. No wonder we feel bored, no wonder small kids say, “I know that Aunty”.

It is estimated that we spend 80% of our life on autopilot or subconscious pilot! This means that majority of life is habituated doing what we regularly do and not seeing the unique context of that moment as a separate time (fourth dimension) in three dimensional space.

Our life is lived in a dull blur. We resist the now and the new.

We need to override this autopilot. Each time you notice you are on autopilot, or the next time you take a drink of water, tea, etc. Take a slow deep breath in through your nose, hold the breath, exhale through the nose, smile and ask yourself, “what is needed now?” Because it is different to what was needed yesterday. Just by doing this you will have taken yourself off autopilot and switched on your high powered intuitive, brain. Enjoy, life is here to be experienced not thought about!

HOW TO INTEGRATE OUR SHADOW PERSONALITY

hidden self

Over the next few weeks we will be working deeply on our subconscious mind and personalities to understand our motivation and ourselves better. So we can communicate from our authentic self. For this you will need to understand the following definitions.

Definitions?

Authentic Self: This is the projection from the reality of your soul. It is when we are intuitive and live in the experience of each moment.

Persona: A projection from the authentic self, but only the side we want everyone to see.

Shadow Self: The polarity of the Persona. Also projected from the authentic self, but our weaknesses that we do not want anyone to see. We must accept and integrate the shadow so we can feel whole.

Hidden Self: This is fake self, based on our subconscious traumas and dramas not processed in childhood. It blocks the natural radiance of the authentic self.

Mask: A projection from the Hidden Self, created to manipulate relationships and environments to satisfy the urges and agendas of the Hidden self.

Why do I need to discover the Shadow Self?

It is important that we accept we are human. By that I mean that we are born imperfect but we have to learn to see our imperfections as perfections. When my teacher Shiv Charan told me this 9 years ago I taken aback.

There are things we are naturally good at and find easy and things that we find difficult. Why not accept both equally as part of ourselves? Instead we make judgements of who we think we should be, what society expects of us.

 PRACTICAL SKILLS TO DEVELOP

  1. Do not see your weaknesses as a problem to overcome.
  2. Kindly accept them as part of you, just like accepting a scar as part of your body.
  3. Say to yourself, I accept all parts of me. Nothing is good or bad only thinking makes it so.
  4. Stop trying to be perfect. Ask yourself why you need to do everything perfectly or be perfect? Is it because you believe if you are not perfect you will not be loved?
  5. For example say I am not very good with accounts, if I acknowledge this and hire a good book keeper instead of struggling with something I really dislike and find frustrating.
