In the modern world, we have a lot of physical, external technologies. But we hardly know anything about the inner workings of our minds. We haven’t done any inner engineering. And that means that we’re walking around in a constant state of anxiety and suffering, wondering why the heck life has to be so hard.
But it turns out that there are other states of consciousness you can access. You don’t actually have to feel like you do right now. You can adopt a new way of being that isn’t the traditional Western analytical style. And it can feel really good.
Letting go and achieving a higher state of consciousness can bring all kinds of benefits. It helps to bring more compassion and love into your relationships. It reduces your suffering. And it helps you attain a kind personal liberation where you no longer feel like you have to rely on external things to provide you with happiness.
Actually achieving these higher states of consciousness, however, seem like a bit of a mystery to the vast majority of people. They’re uncharted territory. And, in the West, we don’t have official channels allowing people to explore them, unlike in the East.
So what can you do to get to higher states of being and really enjoy your life in a fundamental way?
The first place to begin is with thinking itself.
Be honest with yourself: how many times during the day does your mind entertain unwanted or unpleasant thoughts? If you’re like most people, it’s all the time. There’s this constant background chatter that causes massive swings in your mood and wellbeing.
It turns out, though, that you and your thoughts are not the same thing. If you can learn to switch them off, you can begin to experience a child-like state of consciousness. You just experience existence for what it is, without all the layers of thought and anxiety on top of it.
Reduce Your Fictions
The next step is to reduce your mind-made fictions.
Most people have a set idea of who they are, where they come from, why they are the way they are, and what they can achieve. And they believe in these ideas fiercely.
Achieving a higher level of consciousness, however, is all about letting go of these concepts. That way, you don’t limit your life or box yourself in.
Change Your Thought Processes
Thanks to mental health problems, online hypnotherapy is now the norm. The reason it’s so popular is that it helps people to change their unconscious thought processes. You might tell yourself that you’re free, but unless the unconscious mind believes it, your life won’t go in the direction you want it to go.
Reconfiguring your mind using various techniques, therefore, can help accelerate conscious awakening. The more practice you give it, the more liberated you become.
Using Your Brain To Serve You
Lastly, higher states of consciousness involve using your brain to serve you, not the other way around. You come to recognise that it’s not just something that generates pain, but a tool you can use for creating more bliss in your life.
