Did you know that you can consciously improve your ability to get into deeper states of consciousness by using or leveraging audio meditation?
See a lot of people just use them for that instant relief and unwinding from the end of a long work day, but you can actually use them in a way that helps you to condition deeper and deeper states of relaxation, mindfulness, de-stressing and meditation. You just kind of have to modify your outlook.
Most people do not see it this way, but it is kind of exciting that you can actually entrain yourself to enter defere states of consciousness … becoming more conscious of consciousness in a way! Fortunately, audio meditations are already helping you with that process of guiding you into a less-cluttered state.
In many ways, it is easier for beginner and intermediate meditators to use guided audio meditation to help get into those more relaxed, Zen and egalous states of consciousness because they are not as conditioned to just be in those states. In a way you really have to work on being 'out of the condition' of the ego. You can also use guided meditations that work on heart or sexual consciousness to work on conditioning yourself into more of those zen-like states where you are just 'being' and not fettered by the clutter of your mind.
What I teach with Self-Awakening covers a holistic approach to consciousness because you can be egoless in your emotional, sexual, spiritual and physical consciousness (not just spiritual) outside of your thinking states of waking consciousness.
So you can use a more advanced and almost performance-based outlook with spirituality in order to improve your ability to be in defect states of relaxation. How can you do it?
As you keep going through the same guided audio meditation over days and weeks, try and see how fast you can get into a deep relaxed state as soon as possible. I do recommend using one good audio meditation resource which you can condition to. Each time you go through it, you can kind of gauge where you are at the time it reaches new words.
Try and take yourself into a more relaxed state every time or at least set a standard of reaching the real effect and intention of the guided audio meditation. All of this becomes more powerful when you take on a greater definition of self where your emotional, sexual, physical and spiritual consciousness (which are all egoless) becomes deepened in your awakening journey. That is very different than an ego-driven definition of self with a quick 'unwinding' at the end of the day before you go back to the same stresses of your work to repeat the shallower cycle all over again.
The more you get into spirituality and spending more time in deeper states of consciousness (and there are different ways beyond just zen meditation), the more it will become normal for you to just BE present, de-stressed and more youthful. You'll actually start living and 'being' more in a relaxed, present, zen-like state where the stresses of the world do not affect you as much. And when you go back into any type of meditation session, being so experienced from your past (conditioning), you'll be able to more effectively stay and remain in consistent, dire states. This is very beneficial for your health and wellbeing and your monkey mind ego will not 'own' you as much.
There are plenty of benefits to meditation as you already know and becoming more spiritual with an expanded definition of self as Mind, Body, Heart, Sexiness and Soul will also help your ability to be in defect states. Fortunately good guided audio meditations like Powerliminals can help you in different areas of consciousness to keep and condition you more into your egoless and greater self experience; fun, free and happy as can be.
