5 Ways to gain new insight into the real you

People who believe they know themselves may be surprised to learn it is possible to gain more and more clarity. Initial insights are not the most profound or life-changing.

To evolve to recognize the nature of your own learning curve is to prepare yourself to completely transform your perception. You are in process of learning totrain your mind differently, to create new thresholds or advanced levels of understanding. Consider five ways to gain insight into the real you;

1)Experience something to sense what it is. You grow to sense the difference between things through opening yourself to them. What you anticipate about each experience is not how it is. You cannot identify an apple by solely discerning its not an orange. Youapply your sensesto focus the mind and keep it focused. It is necessary to create new points of reference.

2)Take the time todiscover solitude. To choose to be alone in quiet enables you to experience a sense of emptiness. This kind of atmosphere invites reflection about different levels of your ownignorance and how you can act to change.

3)Shake the foundation of your beliefs. How people and things appear to your mind is often automatically accepted as truth. As you begin to discern your values and conditioning, you begin to grasp why you cling to certain assumptions. You peel through layers of your reasoning as you use and reuse it.

4)Suppress counter-productive emotions. Your dreams exist and so do you. Negative thoughts and feelings can destabilize your focus and self-confidence.  You choose how to perceive yourself and how your mind functions.  You decide what serves you and what does not.  You have the power to dissolve or remove limits you create to block insight.

5)Revise your own misconceptions. As you grow more and more discerning, you begin to realize the complex layers of misundersanding that have come to frame your life. Your conditioned views about what you had assumed you can or cannot do, what you had denied and rejected, none of these beliefs are realities although so forcefully expressed by the mind. You can detach from lies and self-created illusion.

I have to constantly open my thoughts to new ideas. Solitude is that which rejuvenates my mind and spirit. Some times I find myself searching out solitude so I can clear my thoughts. I have discovered that my capabilities are limited solely by my own effort.

Liara, this is a great post. I think experiencing solitude is a great tip. When we enter into solitude we enter into a journey of self-exploration. We make way for the giant within us to take over and guide us.

Sharon, solitude is an opportunity for meditative reflection. It is an opportnuity to relearn what it means to empty your mind, to just be, to rediscover inner knowing, emptiness and meaningful things you had forgotten.

Eric S., human beings trigger all kinds of personal revelations during solitude. This is an opportunity to restrain your senses and to retrain your mind. You remember how to unleash your faculties differently.

These are well-presented points, Liara.
#1 is particularly true as the brain needs multiple avenues of stimulation (sight, sound, smell touch) to effectively move something from the abstract realm to reality.
Naturally, we are hard-wired to pay more attention to things that the brain believes to be real - it's why you might be scared of the dark in an abstract way, but you are damn sure to apply the breaks in your car when the one in front of you does.

I am glad that you found me and commented on my post in my blog. I find your blog fascinating and intend returning to it and commenting.

Solitude, as opposed to loneliness is a topic that I frequently hold forth on among my friends and other interested listeners. I practice vipassana meditation and that along with a natural desire for solitude enables me to handle the stresses and strains of daily living.

I find that the meditation helps me to come to grips with all the other points raised by you here.

Patrick , the human mind develops multiple layers of awareness about reality. The bad news in media evokes awareness of fear and tension. Advances in technology prompt people to believe what they do is not enough. Other layers of perceived reality reinforce inadequacy, insecurity and fear. Human beings evolve to recognize physical and mental suffering and also mental strategies to alleviate them. The idea of developing universal awareness on some level implies a level of universal responsibility and interconnectedness. Awareness helps us sense we all want the same thing.

rummurser, meditation is indeed a fascainating, personal experience. Many approaches exist to discipline and clear the mind. Regardless of a person's stage of awareness or meditative practice, new milestones are always explored and achieved, Learning never ends for the open-minded.

I thought I left a comment for you yesterday. Seems I've been having trouble leaving replies on Australian blogs like with my friend Svasti.

I love this post and I was thrilled beyond words to find you.

This sentence struck me at my core: "You have the power to dissolve or remove limits you create to block insight." YES, YES....YES!

Christa, you did leave a comment concerning a different post. I replied. (The post where you commented is entitled Rachel Naomi Remen & 5 tools to readjust your sails). Always glad to empower people who are exploring new kinds of thinking. Rather than wait for other people to change, we can decide to renew our own connection to basic human values. We can initiate inner change anytime.
