How a lack of self-awareness comes about by not paying attention, not being mindful, not being present, not enjoying the moment. How we are so not aware old patterns are standing in the way of what we want. One thing therefore is certain we have to change our minds in order to change our ways. One solution is to slow down our thoughts with meditation. It is the mind which sustains habits-good and bad. So we then have to become more aware of negative thoughts and negative self chatter. Notice what is going on when you feel low energy, overall blah, grouchy or depressed. What are you thinking about? Self awareness is needed here.
We have to change these patterns which no longer serve us or which not longer feel right at this time.We have to take time to focus on positive thoughts, we have to take time to daydream, to visualize, and to see things with the mind’s eye to create good energy.
For me when I take time for mediation it brings about thought awareness and self-awareness. Mindfulness is meditation and meditation is mindfulness. And being mindful, fully conscious of my actions and thoughts, makes it easier to do things which have value, meaning and purpose. Awareness brings about change, a change to healthy habits and new patterns of behaviors.
So take stock of things you want to release. old clothes, old files, old habits, or old systems. slow down. unplug for 10 minutes every day. close your eyes and be still. Breath deeply and let go.
