Experience is the Best Teacher
While you’re sleeping, the brain is already on, processing thoughts from the subconscious. It creates momentum, a pattern that can be difficult to break when the conscious mind turns on in the morning. This fact is part of the why behind the yogic practice of Sadhana.
Sadhana is a word used to describe your daily spiritual practice, and the way it works – whether you’re doing yoga, meditating, writing, or just reading from a sacred text - is by creating a new pattern in the mind. The practice provides a time and space dedicated exclusively to personal development and if you wake early and intercept the subconscious wanderings, it is particularly effective. You’ll find that you become calm and confident as you begin to uncover thoughts you didn’t even know you had. Taking these and offering them to the conscious mind, you are empowered to make the changes you want in your life, and to become the person you have always wanted to be. It all starts with the commitment to consistently be there for yourself.
