  1. @creator20 It could be a superior feeling that derives from an inferiority complex, psychologically speaking. Most of the time the biggest baggages we carry come from family, and people have the subconscious need to reenact past traumas to rielaborate them and feel better about them, hence most of all human behaviour is explained.
  2. @Mada_ @Matt23 @JosephKnecht @SpaceLaika01 @Rigel @Husseinisdoingfine @Osaid @Espaim @neovox @Michal__ There's a site called Downsub that let's you download the transcript of a video if that video has subtitles. So you can watch the video, take as notes the most important things you hear, then download the transcript and have all the things said if you want to analyze again the video (underline, organize stuff, keep all neat and clear) without spending too much time. Plus you can speed the video with chrome extensions. There are extensions that let you speed up to 16x.
  3. The problem could be physical, environmental or psychological. If physical: optimize sleep, nutrition and exercise. Check your health with medical exams (blood tests, urine tests, ecc.) If environmental: other users have given useful advice. If psychological: maybe it's a coping mechanism
  4. Rent them. And invest wisely that money.
  5. Does anyone knows a great book/video/whatever that explains the cause, the effects and the relationships, both static and dynamic, of the chakras when you work on them? I've been experiencing some obstacles in opening them and I'd like to understand the behaviour that I observed. For example, can a chakra block other chakras? Can a chakra open when you open another chakra? In what ways a chakra closed by some event can be opened? How to know if a chakra is ready to be opened or if a chakra needs you to open another one first? How to overcome specific blockages? How can a closed chakra manifest physiologically, what are its related sensations? What is the best approach given a certain physical response when working on a chakra? I already read the book on the booklist about chakras and kundalini, but although the author gives a certain step process, I didn't find what I was looking for and actually chakras are not linear: you can open one of them but it can close again when you work on another one. I'm looking for a resource based on the physical feelings a chakra can express through. So, somatic descriptions mainly. Thank you.
  6. @OmShanti69 I experimented a bit. How much aware are you of your body? I noticed that I'm more disconnected from my lower body than I used to think. I feel like my awareness throughout the day is focused on the upper half of the body (from chest to head) as a form of blockage that prevents me from being overwhelmed. It's like my mind prevents me from perceiving the lower half of body keeping all my energies in the upper chakras. I feel like my lower is foggy, and I can clearly sense a feeling of energy being held up, at the level of the chest/throat. Like my mind rejects my lower half. It's like I have a white blanket of "life"/energy only in my upper chakras, leaving my body numb, nebulous, detatched, inferior. So I decided to bring total surrender to the lower, and I learned that my mind prevents me from doing it all time because if I do I'd be flooded with feelings/repressed emotions/traumas. In fact if I do it, I can perceive my body in a more clean, lucid way, and I feel more alive, more down to earth, more in touch with who I am. And memories are linked more to emotions than to thoughts.
  7. @Happy Jay Take a look at Teal Swan youtube channel. She has a lot of helpful, deep, on-point videos on psychology. Doing self-inquiry/epistemological work is usually not appropriate if you are not psychologically healthy. And the best way to do it is cleansing your mind and your emotions/body. So the challenge is two-fold: do some journaling to explore your issues and analyze your psyche + do some therapeutic work on your emotions (Inner Child Work, Trauma Release Exercises, Parts Work or Gestalt Therapy, Chakra visualization, Shamanic Breathing, Emotional Vipassana, ecc.).
  8. @seeking_brilliance Cute . However this derives from the fact that our personalities have various sides (see Internal Family Systems Model and Ego-state therapy), more than being a full circle IMO.
  9. I think the video is The Theme of Things Going Full-Circle, but your example is not very on point if you look at the emotional/energetical side of it (joy and sadness are very different in terms of focus of thoughts, feelings, intention, level of consciousness). If you look at the physiological side maybe it is, because both are strong emotions that lead to crying.
  10. @neutralempty Great concise video. Refreshing.
  11. I accidentally found this site: https://thepowermoves.com/ https://thepowermoves.com/start-here/ It seems a mixture of stage yellow and stage orange blog on social dynamics and seduction. I think this could be massively helpful. I'm still checking it out though.
  12. Here's more free courses: https://skillshop.exceedlms.com/student/catalog/browse https://www.facebook.com/business
  13. I found these YouTube channels, they seem to have free long high quality courses on various topics regarding software development, marketing, coding, etc. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCL3Erb7wUblXkzmwFuyjdVQ/videos https://www.youtube.com/c/SimplilearnOfficial/videos https://www.youtube.com/c/Freecodecamp/videos Have fun!
  14. @Zak It depends on how deep are your traumas, what's your environment, what techniques you decide to use, how often you'll use them, how committed you are and other factors. The depth of your traumas depends on what happened to you, on how you interpreted the events and on the sensitivity of your nervous system. The environment means family or school or whatever social circle or situation wounded you and which you are still in. I had CPTSD and I've been working on my traumas for two years doing psychotherapy and psychological/spiritual exercises. There were weeks when I went berserk and did a therapy session one day + two hours of inner child work/emotional expression on the other days, giving myself only 3-4 days off. There were days when I got fever because of the strain I put on my body (with care and love). Saying I was determined would be an understatement. However I had to do all of this in the same environment that traumatized me (home), so if I'd left home in some way I think I could have recovered faster. If your traumas are deep: the earlier you start, the better it is for you. Going on this journey will be a fucking huge one-of-a-kind experience, a glorious epic adventure. You'll feel like a real life hero. You'll grow so so much, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, and your experience will spill in all areas of life. If you decide to embrace pain and purify yourself from all the hurt and suffering and rage and hate, taking full responsibility for yourself and your wounds, I'll tell you, you will tap into the highest inner peaks a human can reach. It will be tough, you'll want to quit, but when you'll be on the edge of quitting, you'll remember why you started, life will smack in your face all the work you'll still have to do, and you will gather all your energies to keep going, because what else are you gonna do? Quit? Go back to the hell where you started? You won't regret all the work once you recover by 40%-50%. If your traumas are not so deep: you'll still have work to do, the best thing to do I think is therapy and digging your psyche to find the motives and causes for your behaviour. However nothing forbids you from using methods and techniques created for serious traumas. It will be like killing a fly with a cannon. These are the best and most powerful techniques and methods I tried on myself: Inner Child Work Emotional Vipassana Parts Work (Teal Swan video on how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxMD4tSHwfc&t=1130s) Shamanic Breathing (Leo's video) (however this technique requires a lot of free time if you want fast results) Contemplation/Journaling (writing why you do what you do, why you do it that way, where your behaviours come from) Teal Swan frequency paintings Powerful books I read: The Completion Process - Teal Swan (Inner Child Work + Emotional Vipassana) The Anatomy of Loneliness - Teal Swan (Parts Work and Family Dynamics) Complex PTSD: From Surviving To Thriving - Pete Walker Trauma and Memory: Brain and Body in a Search for the Living Past - Peter A. Levine & Bessel A. Van Der Kolk Healing The Shame That Binds You - John Bradshaw
