Power of Meditation :

While you are  reading this text, simultaneously you are breathing, your heart pumping blood to all parts, your kidney is filtering your blood, your skin is sensing temperature and sending signal for warm or cold environment, your ears are hearing sounds, your eyes are not only reading but also overlooking the background, your hands holding the  mouse  by applying a constant pressure on it, many more things are going on inside your body  unnoticed without consciously thinking about it. All this is controlled by your senior silent friend known as subconscious. Your subconscious is driving you silently. Though it is not your enemy but an uneducated powerful friend. Your subconscious  run your whole body without disturbing you consciously. It comprises of 90% of your brain and thus it is much powerful than your conscious brain-the thinking you.

All your instant reaction are directed from sub-conscious as there is no enough time for conscious to think and take decision. But sometimes we do have time yet we allow our subconscious to react on situation in anger. All this behavior can be change by having control over your subconscious.

Our subconscious does not understand words as our conscious do. Thus making a bright and happy picture trigger your subconscious to work towards that goal. Your subconscious understand feeling and emotion’s and pictures made in your mind. Use them to alter your behavior.

Meditation is art of awakening subconscious and to create a link with it. For meditation one needs calm place with dim or no light and loose outfit. Sit on the ground preferably or on any hard surface in comfortable posture. Cross leg is better. Give a name to your sub-conscious before starting the meditation.  Slowly take deep breath. Close your eyes and try to relax while thinking that you are part of universe and you and universe are one entity.

After 5 mins or when you start feeling relaxed, start talking to your subconscious. Think about what you want to change in your behavior or inside your body. For example: anger/ quitting smoking/ losing weight/ recovery from disease.

Repeat: I want to control my anger.

I don’t want to get angry on small issues.

If I will not be angry, it will make my life better. My family will be happy. My friends will be happy

Everyone will appreciate me. I will be a happier person.

So I don’t want to be angry. Max (name your subconscious) help me to control my anger.

It will make me happy.

Discover yourself & live a meaningful life:

For whole life, we remain busy in learning about everything except our self. For first 20 years (up to graduation) of our education, we learn about the world and everything in it. However, no one teach us about our mind in detail, except if you take psychology as your subject in graduation.

If you are uneducated, you do not have even basic knowledge about yourself. You live your life believing you know about yourself everything. Unfortunately, psychologically you know nothing about yourself. You do not know about unconscious bias you have, you do not know about believes which were embedded in you during your childhood in your brain through indoctrination. You do not know that your subconscious mind and conscious mind do not have direct connection. You do not know that extreme emotions like anger trigger your subconscious to by-pass conscious mind and take charge of situation. Whatever you do during this time period will be entirely different from your normal behaviour. Later you might even repent it. Learn about Neural Science, psychology and human behaviours, this is where we all need to invest some time and money.

Knowing about yourself, i.e. your mind can empower you to develop better control over yourself self. In book 7-habits of highly effective peoples, Author mentioned very powerful and practical thought:

There is a space between stimulus and response, in that space lies your freedom to choose your response and on your response depends your growth and future. Use your space to take right decision.

Do not let your sub-conscious dictate you its decision. Think positively for a moment: What will be the outcome of this? Suppose a person get mad at you. Your first and immediate reaction will be anger. Your fight or flight mode is on based on your subconscious action. Wait for a second to think, what is the right action?  Immediately you will realize in most of cases that fighting is not the right action. Use your space between stimulus and response. Your response must come from conscious brain. Soon you will discover a new you! By discovering yourself you can motivate yourself and make your life more productive. Below are things we can do to keep us self-motivated.

  1. Vision: Primarily important thing for successful life and motivation is vision. Vision is more than forward thinking. It is overall plan to achieve your desired goals based on resources you have and knowledge of your surroundings. If you don’t know where you are going you will never be interested in going there.
  2. Smart Work: Plenty of people do hard work and at some time feel tired of their efforts as they fail to earn in proportion of their work. They fail to realize that with hard work they also need right direction to be successful. Start doing smart work which is the combination of hard work with right direction. When you start getting success or increment in your salary/ profit, you automatically become motivated.
  3. Positive Thinking: Most of our disappointment are result of negative thinking. A small bird shit on you and you feel disgusting. Thanks god that elephants do not fly! That is call positive attitude. Stop worrying when your flight is 3 hours late; look for a bookstore or a restaurant. Go to Mc Donald’s and enjoy Mc burger! Your anger and frustration will not land the flight earlier. You have to wait. Wait happily. Use your mobile phone and talk to your loved once watch videos, surf internet. Always remember, Good time run faster than bad time. Thus, whenever you have to pass time make it good time.
  4. Use your sub-conscious: Meditation can help you to motivate yourself. Our mind understand images not words. Create a bright and happy image in your mind while meditating. Think about changes you want to bring in your life, and how those changes will make you happy. You can read my blog on sub-conscious mind and meditation in detail here.
  5. Read Good Books. There is no substitute of books. If you are not a good reader, try watching videos on YouTube. Videos of great achievers, biographies and lectures of motivational guru’s can help you.
  6. Think about Others: Many peoples do not want to work anymore because they had enough to live their life comfortably. This is very small thinking. Human are social animals, we must think about others. If you have enough, then either help others to earn or spent on them.
