Resolving the Past
November 30, 2022 • Conversations on the Spiritual Path
In my previous post I talked about preparing for the coming year. Preparation should not only be about making plans or setting goals for 2023 but also asking ourselves what is it from our past that we do not want to take into our future.
Simply speaking, the more burdens of the past we carry with us into the future the more they weigh us down. I’ve covered this in a past email and for those of you who have not seen it you can read it here: What’s in your suitcase?
Now, let me bring your attention to my guru’s quote that I shared with you last week, “Problems are not problems. They are subconscious patterns that need to be adjusted.” What are the subconscious patterns that you wish to adjust as you go forward?
We all, regardless of what anyone claims, have some degree of unresolved emotional experiences in our subconscious mind. They are “unresolved” and the key is to resolve them so that they longer contain emotions that have the ability to exert influence over our awareness and thus dictate how we think, speak, act and react in an unwholesome way.
My suggestion is to identify three unresolved emotional experiences in your subconscious mind that were created this year and work to resolve them. Now, there are a few ways one can do this but one method that my guru taught me is the Vasana Daha Tantra – an ancient Hindu practice that is simple, practical and easy to implement.
For those of you who are interested in doing this as part of preparing for 2023, go to the following link on my website, and scroll down to “Step 6: How to deal with emotions?”. Read what I’ve written there and watch the video in the link. I’ll take you through the process in the video and you can then try it on your own.
Many people often focus on what they can add to their life — new habit patterns, rituals, tools etc. All of this is good but an equally critical, if not more so important step in the process of spiritual unfoldment or personal growth, is dealing with what we already have inside of us. If your closet, your subconscious, is full of stuff it is going to be so much harder to add things to it. Let’s work to clear the closet and make room for what we need and want in life that will help us live an uplifting and rewarding life.
Now the burden of responsibility is on you to do the work.
For those of you who resonate with what I do, and want to study with me deeper in the coming year, here’s what I recommend:
- Do my Unwavering Focus course. I’ll be running my annual sale (January 1st to 7th) and you’ll be able to get the course at a discounted rate. I have not announced this publicly yet but as a subscriber to my emails you’ll always be one of the first to know.
- If you prefer reading, then buy my book, The Power of Unwavering Focus.
Both the course and the book contain the foundation of what I teach and this needs to be learnt, implemented and practiced. Without this foundation the rest will always be a struggle.
If you’ve done the Unwavering Focus course and/or read the book, then I recommend you do my Energy Alchemist course as the next one.
We must really want to live a different life, a better life. Only then will we truly do something about it.
Purpose, Frustration and Hopelessness
Today’s post is focused on some of the questions that have been sent in. There are way too many to answer but here are some brief, and I emphasize brief, responses. 1. “According to you what is the biggest purpose every human being must have, by accomplishing it they would enjoy the journey?” ~ S...Read More
Is Listening to Music Multitasking?
Here’s my response to a question submitted by one of my weekly email subscribers. “Is listening to music with no words and doing something else distracting? Is that multitasking? I sometimes listen to sounds of frequencies while I work. Our sound bowls.” ~ Nomy It is not distracting. It is...Read More
Change, Failure and Discouragement
People think that change is binary but it is not. It is not an on and off switch. If you break an addiction or a habit you abhor for a while then there is a very high chance you will relapse at some point in the future. Should you have worked with yourself in a…Read More
Are you on track?
We are close to reaching the halfway mark of 2022. It feels, at least to me, the new year was not too long ago. A new year is often a promise of hope. A time when many people make plans, set goals and resolutions, and more than anything wish for things to be better, especially…Read More
