“Think in terms of starting a conversation with your subconscious. You want to have a dialog. Ask questions. Why am I drawn to this guy? What experience am I seeking? What am I trying to feel or realize or remember?”
I usually tell people to lie still for this kind of thing; this what works for me. It’s a super private thing.
If something gross comes up, which is almost a given, you don’t have to broadcast it. It’s information for your use, though it’s nice if you can find at least one non-judgmental person you can talk too. This is because it normalizes things and/or neutralizes the information.
“I’ve thought that before.”
We all have a dark side. Sometimes it drives. I think spending your life trying to avoid knowing this is pretty strange.
Do you take time to reflect on yourself and your motivations? What’s your method?
