Your self-concept is your sanctuary. It contains your thoughts, emotions, ideas, your habits, subconscious patterns. And everything that is of core nature to you. The way you talk, the way you walk, the way you communicate with family and friends is often a predefined behavior. This predefined behavior is saved from hundreds of thousands of references that you subconsciously accepted.
This self-concept is like a bunker of emotions and thoughts about yourself that you keep to yourself. They define how you behave with the society and in the world in general. For example, a person expressing anger on his colleague is corporate intolerance and also justified as bad behavior. But the expression of that emotion could be hiding deep inside the self-concept of that person. That expression could be an answer to a self-concept emotion that triggers this behavior.
Influence of Negative Impressions
The more negative impressions your self-concept holds, the more negatively you will analyze situations and talks of people around you. It’s like your mind is looking for similar experiences and trying to keep you safe. But the safety comes at a cost. Anxiety, depression, loneliness, anger and many other instabilities in emotions begin to happen in your life. You feel lonely and you also feel like you can’t attend to things. ADHD, social anxiety, loss of focus and many other problems become a part of your life. Your bunker builds a cocoon of negative energy around your life.
Most people are recommended meditation and practice of mindfulness to overcome their emotions. When you practice mindfulness and meditation, you go deep into your own consciousness and become observant. You start cleaning up the old emotions that are keeping you from putting out your best behavior.
Start by understanding what your core values are. What your self-concept should include. Possibly, also make a mental note of things you might want to include and exclude from your mind and behavior. For example, you might want to behave in a kinder way with people and you might want to exclude the emotion of anxiety and anger when someone says things otherwise from your opinion. Once you understand how you are reacting to different situations at different times, you will be able to take better decisions and make choices wisely.
Become Aware of the Subconscious
You need to make sure you know what goes into your subconscious and how you are emotionally dealing with it. And you can only do that when you are mindfully present in the scene, when you are peaceful and calm. And this happens when you practice the Nitaai Breathing exercise.
Suddenly, you are aware. You are aware of how your life is changing and how each interaction is turning into a good thought process for you. Every emotion is not being reacted to and not all people are answered. There is a turning point in your behavior. It transforms you from the inside out.
With Nitaai Breathing, you become mindful and focused. Your energies are aligned and your thoughts are organized. It simplifies your actions from the core itself. It makes you feel good, relieves stress and helps beat procrastination. It also helps you get out of depression. It cleans your self-concept off emotional toxins. Once the self-concept gets improved, your emotions improve and so does your life.
