Well, another morning’s wake and bake has led to a bit of inspiration. Let’s see how this comes out.
The other day, when I came up with the whole “Writer’s Unlock” idea…I was having a conversation with myself. It was remarkable…it was me, only it didn’t seem like it was me. I was so focused on the conversation, those rude, random thoughts couldn’t interrupt. This morning, though, I could feel the conversation brewing in my mind, but those pushy thoughts were just too loud. A bit frustrated, I decided to try and briefly meditate. I turned my focus from my thoughts to my breath…which usually results in my hyper-analyzing my breathing and freaks me out. Fortunately, not this time. I just focused on the result of my breathing – my stomach rising and falling, the cool feeling in my nostrils as the air went in, the warmer feeling as the air went out. I focused on the results not the actual action. That’s when it hit me –
Unlocking the brain is more about meditation, silencing the surrounding stimuli, to allow your mind to wander and introduce new thoughts which will guide you. It introduces you to your subconscious, the side of you you only meet in your dreams.
Last night I had an amazing experience…I actually “heard” my feelings. Not in the sense of audible words in my ears, it was something much deeper, and much harder to explain. You’ve heard to listen to your feelings, but have you ever actually heard them? Heard them without all the interference of your consciousness? The reality is, we try to process the information were receiving with our consciousness when we should be simply listening to the voice of our feelings.
When this happened, I realized that although I understand some things consciously…that conscious understanding does not mean I have truly listened to the voice within me. I have struggled so hard to consciously understand what life is, and what I am meant to do with mine. I have been seeking to make sense of it all so I can believe in the manifesting powers of The Universe, to trust, and have faith in my successes in this incarnation. Well, last night I discovered that I truly cannot understand if I do not listen with the right ears. Now I recognize my conscious mind as not my enemy, but a safety mechanism for this human form. My conscious and subconscious must now have the opportunity to work as one. My consciousness is part of my physical world, but my subconscious is part of my connection to something much greater. I must now move forward as trusting my higher self…for I don’t know that I ever truly believed, until now, the power of my subconscious. We have become so reactive in this physical form that we have forgotten our direct connection to God…or whatever you want to call it. Wise men have tried to tell us, but it has been lost in translation because our conscious mind has filtered too much.
How to Connect with Your Higher Self
Honestly, I have tried many times to connect with my higher self in order to gain some insight, some understanding. After my experience last night, the only way I can suggest you connect with and hear your inner-self is to “zone out.” Just zone out…almost like a mini-meditation. We do it hundreds of times a day. Only this time, be conscious enough to experience your feelings from a different place. Your mind will wander, just don’t focus in on one thought in-particular. Just let them flow and sense the emotion the best you can. It really is that simple, but I also understand that this is no easy task.
Please take my word on the fact that this is the truth, at least for me. I have been on this journey for a long time, tripping over myself. I am not a flaky person, I have always prided myself on being cemented in reality…it’s only now that I realize that what I thought was a virtue, was actually a hindrance.
