Yoga And Meditation For Mind Control
Our subconscious mind contains numerous redundant thoughts, unfulfilled desires, memories, and dreams. It is home to our personality, fears, thought patterns, and desires. Also, most of the time, our mind is occupied with self-centered thinking and as long as our mind lacks the power to enforce ‘proper discrimination,’ this kind of thought process continues like a recorder on a loop.
If we allow ourselves to be controlled by our subconscious mind, we will remain a victim of our past. If we remain attached to any thought with ‘like’ or ‘dislike,’ it enters our subconscious mind and at a specific time and under certain circumstances, these thoughts will be fructified. Hence, controlling the germination of such thoughts in our subconscious mind is crucial.
If we think positively, positive thoughts will enter our subconscious mind and our life will be absolute bliss! If we think negatively, the outcome will be the same. Thus, our objective should be to purify our subconscious mind and ensure that we store whatever we need for a better life!
Yoga And Positivity
Yoga is an exercise of the body and mind and its aim is to improve the quality of one’s perspective, so as to be able to identify reality and attain self-awareness. Kundalini Yoga, Yoga Nidra and thinking positively, helps an individual to live in the present moment, releasing one from harmful thoughts that may preoccupy the mind.
This is a combination of meditative and physical exercise that combines asanas, pranayama, and the chanting of mantras. Kundalini signifies the energy that is hidden at the base of one’s spine. By practising this yoga, the energy unlocks itself and travels through the chakras, creating a heightened sense of awareness.
Yoga Nidra activates the procedure of self-awareness, coupled with resetting and restructuring the consciousness of an individual. It can be noticed in enhanced control of emotions, stability of the autonomic nervous system and expanded consciousness. The eventual outcome of this yoga is to accomplish total integration, brain-body coordination with all levels of awareness. In this type of yoga, an individual enters a form of psychic sleep and get relief from certain burdens that the mind and body has accumulated over time.
This is quite similar (but not the same) to the body-mind practise which an individual experiences during sleep, because even while one dreams, the mind is aware of ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes.’ Hence the ’emptying’ of the subconscious mind is not carried out even during sleep. However, this can be certainly accomplished with meditation.
