>>16837178 I've been practicing music, graphic design and launched a clothing company this week. Always striving to improve creativity. To be more creative I could allocate more time and incorporate better time management to my practices.
>>16837216 It does not bother me much. I personally understand that people hold different beliefs, and when I encounter someone that tries to tear mine down with so much will it just makes me understand they they are unsure about their own.
>>16837262 I was in a place physically and mentally and a relationship that was not healthy for me. I knew I had to get out and one day I just had the strongest feeling I had to get better and get out. One month later I was out and on the path of self improvement. It'll be one year since I left on the 16th of this month and my health and all other aspects of my life have improved tenfold. I like my instinct and willpower.
>>16837147 When i break in the house of my neighbourhood ( which were gone in hollidays), to jerk off on the panties of a girl, and someone come in. I was panicking but i successed to hide in the room. It was just another neighbour who came to feed the cat.
>>16837426 i was on my way home when i was about to get in the buss, i saw an old man looking for someting in the floor i approached him and ask what he was looking for, he asked me to help him find his wedding ring, i did so, we found his ring and i missed my buss, didn't care.
>>16837915 I've tried, but I can no longer fight the fear of failure anymore. The only way for me to lose this fear is to either be the personification of perfection or to never leave my house and never do anything productive so I have nothing to fail in, and therefore nothing to fear.
>>16837936 There aren't many times when I refuse to go out of my way for people, so nothing absurdly specific comes to mind. I don't mind offering help with tasks or projects or giving advice or comfort when asked so that's that.
I get excited about football, I've spread this into the rest of my life by making my life about football. Ive started going to the gym, doing full skill drill workouts, doing more then the bare minimum in college so I can transfer to a D1 school. It's all going good so far.
>>16838045 I guess fapping before bed sometimes. Sometimes when I'm tired and want to go to bed I get the full boner and it keeps me up for like 10-20 min until I give in and rub one out. If I want to avoid it I just have to wait it out.
>>16838059 Questions that can be easily answered by paying attention or searching google. This goes more for when one person asks a lot of dumb questions in a short amount of time or multiple people ask the same question even though they all should of heard it asked the first (couple of) time(s).
People defend their opinion because it's what they've invested their emotions and reputation into. If you held a good opinion about a person or group and then your opinion was wrong what does that say about you as a person?
OP here, if you guys want some other suggestions to help open your Chakras: >Root, cut off at least one material indulgence, understand this is physical on the spectrum with physical on one side and metaphysical on the other >Sacral, abstain from explicit sexuality and learn temperence, drink more water >Solar Plexus, what makes you strong? Sometimes we forget how powerful we are, especially when motivated, that inner drive, the core, never forget. >Heart, remember a time you once were happy in your heart and distrubute your love >Throat, speak up! Don't be so awkward! Also, don't go on speaking too much, our words are very powerful and can be great expressing ideas or nasty speaking nonsense about other people >third eye, focus on it, count breathing, that thing where you see "spots" in your vision. Even coffee through filtered water energizes the brain and also is not loaded with flouride. Crown, you can feel this one, my favorite here is to research about space and connect to the cosmic conscious.
>>16838894 i would take back that time i laughed at my friend brandon when he told me his ultimate plan was to have a pirate ship and crew. i always felt like shit about that. he would be a good captain. i like to envision him sailing gallantly quite often to make up for that laugh.
>>16838936 1. I could start jogging again frequently. 2. i could find someone that makes me happy 3. I could be more open to people and less sensitive 4. I could earn more money 5. I could make artwork that i am proud of
>>16838965 I was rejected in grade 12 by a girl who lied about never going out with people. She then told my friend she just didn't want to hurt my feelings, then went out with someone months later and never spoke to me again.
Lol. So I had an obsession with an ex who represented permanence as we were codependent and then I decided to break the cycle and leave. I've also been obsessed with drugs as they gave me a feeling of control over my internal state.
>>16838719 Walking with her to the end of the tracks that stretch out over the river. She was wearing a skirt with polka dots, holding both my hands in hers but leading the way. I admired her all the way to where the tracks ended and she turned around to kiss me hard. Even though it was the first time, this time, before we even began I knew I had fallen in love with her.
She sat me down against the abandoned building and climbed on top with the selfassured gentleness of a nurse.. she rode me as I embraced her, not once letting go. I remember the scent of her perfume and the tremors of her body as she came.
I was so afraid, and kept looking over her shoulder, but she put her hands on my face and turned my gaze to hers telling me not to be stupid. It's the way she was. I finished, and there beneath the stars I fell for the girl who broke my heart.
>>16836319 Sure hope this is a joke. Fascinating to think that Chakras are the trendy meditation style in this day and age and is probably one of the more dangerous paths you could go down. Will be interesting to see so called gurus get burned in the next 10-20 years.
>>16839612 if i have temptation, I am more likely to give in than overcome it there has been times where i'd be so close to give in and then i stop myself last second just so i can continue my goal of quitting
>>16839636 when it comes to making decisions on many things i'm dependant on people because i'm afraid of the risk of making a retarded as decision and regretting it. I guess being on my own more often could break it
>>16839664 did 4 earlier gonna do 9 instead I was at a small party where a girl was thirsty for my dick I pulled her into a storage room and we fucked like crazy while people were right outside i found out later that she had a boyfriend lol
A girl confessed her love to me in high school. I didnt feel the same about her and said nothing. She repeated herself but I didnt say anything. At the time I had low self esteem and didnt see her as more then a friend.
>>16844802 I constantly avoid going to classes. I'm a lazy person overall, but lately I've been through a deep depression, I think, and I just cannot get myself out the bed. Also I feel comfortable in my bed, and although I know I'll have a great time seeing my friends and learning new stuff at university, I feel so disconnected with everything that's going on in the real world, I feel like I cannot keep up with the situations that take place in real time. I'm just out of phase. I postponed a lot of things and now I can't do any of them right.
I guess I prefer to stay on the comfort zone sometimes, but then I hate myself so much.
>>16844848 >describe obsession with object or person
There's a person who gives me all these signs that they have feelings for me but I know it's bullshit. Unfortunately, I have emotions and the desire to be with someone romantically and therefore can't help but have feelings for them. I'm obsessed with them because I think being with a person will make me happy.
I punched my sister for some stupid reason and realized I was like this guy I went from being good friends with to enemies. He was nice but grew incredibly rude and violent, so our friendship ended. Anyhow, that punch, while I don't think it was that bad, it made me realize I was becoming like former bad friend.
>>16848343 Muldahara 3: I ran over someone and threatened people with a sword in order to save my ex who was in my car, from being run over. Even though I drove off, I say that I faced the situation head on because I let her stay in my car and repelled the attackers with my car and sword.
>>16848347 Also, I did it because I wanted to protect her. Also because she was too young for me and didn't want police involved.
Muldahara 7: the time I was most fearful for my life was probably when I was living on a park bench for a while. I wasn't afraid of dying, but the fear of living as a homeless person for the rest of my life far exceeded my fear of death at any point in my life.
my most memorable sexual encounter was when me and my best friend double teamed some slut. I couldn't get hard because seeing his face as I tried to pent rate her seemed super weird. Couldn't fuck her ever again either, kept seeing the little fuckers face every time I tried.
>>16848371 >What can you do to feel more secure in your life?
Leave my significant other, three years of abuse is too much and it clearly isn't going to get better. I think that yesterday will really help, I can leave, now that it won't be a blindside for him. If not, my friends will make me go sooner or later. My god, I love them so much.
>>16848368 Muldahara 8: I don't feel as though I have an obsession with an object or another person, if anything, I guess it would have to be drugs. They were my only escape from life, and the only thing that made me feel happiness. However, I feel as though the obsession has been removed.
>>16848378 8 again I have let my lust get the better of me. Came in my ex quite a few times because it felt so damn good. Hell, just fucking her in the first place was an act of letting my lust overcome me, because I already knew she was batshit crazy
>>16848387 >What do you get excited about? How can you bring this enthusiasm to the rest of your life?
You know, I can safely say I don't need to work on this. I'm an excited, excitable, happy person. The things that come to mind are my book (I'm so happy it's close to done) and my acting and the films and serials I enjoy. Those are all really, really exciting. I do manage to be enthusiastic about everything in my life that doesn't actively hurt me.
>>16848397 Svadi 7: i get excited about drugs. Doing them, selling them, cooking them, talking about them. It was such a passion for me that it still excites me. To find that same excitement I just have to throw myself into other aspects of my life the same way.
>>16848404 >Tell about a time you struggled to overcome an obstacle, but eventually succeeded.
I thought that I'd never become a decent actor due to my lack of confidence, which in turn was due in part to my BDD. Thankfully I have overcome my fears and am at least able to project confidence (occasionally it internally lapses, but even this is getting to be rare). I don't have to look good to me, I just need to look good enough to get call backs for roles.
>>16848407 7 again. My worst addiction is to anything which inebriates me. I overcome this every day, simply by working hsrd, trying to better my life, and staying away from people who use drugs or alcohol
>>16848412 >Tell about a time you overcame temptation.
Leaving Sam, in that bedroom, at that party. Just because my relationship is going to shit doesn't mean I need to make it go any worse, and I certainly don't need to sink to his level because of how he treats me. I will end this gracefully; I will not set myself on fire to keep him warm, and I damn sure won't smear myself with the same mud he's painted on. I am so, so, so much better than that.
>>16848425 >How can you overcome a fear of failure?
Continue taking on roles I'm not confident about. The people around me think I can do it, and I damn well better not let them down. Similarly, by sending my book off to be published. It's fucking awesome, because I wrote it, and I'm a damned good writer.
>>16848428 >How can understanding your emotions be beneficial?
It helps me to know what I need more of in my life and what I need less of. The more I can determine that, the better decisions I can make moving forward and growing. I can prune the hindrances and make sure that I don't make the same mistakes.
>>16848433 3 people haven't really tried to physically hurt me before. One time, some dude tried to jump me but I was so fucked up that I laughed hysterically as he hit me. He also happened to be the best mma fighter in town.
>>16848446 >How does it feel to have another person decry your opinion or belief?
This has a lot to do with politics; when it's something they can effect with their ability to vote or argue legislature, I have a deep and fundamental need to convince them of my side, as my side is the one I feel is best for humanity. A good example here would be the right to abort or the decriminalization/legalization of cannabis. When the belief is more internal, IE when people tell me my gods don't exist, I can easily recognize that the opinion is subjective and that their thoughts don't matter to me on this subject (though if they're reasonable or interested I'll gladly tell them about it).
>>16848457 I've already done 7, so 1: >What is your ultimate goal in life?
To be self-sustaining in my writing in acting and to owe no debts. Ideally, I'd like a nice house and good health, but I recognize that whatever is causing my pain is likely to have no real answer, and I don't want to become dependent on drugs or something to deal with it. I also want to be happy with the way I look, but due to the BDD I accept that this may never happen.
>>16848471 I've already done 1, so 9: >How can you better understand your emotions?
It would be a good idea to keep a consistent journal detailing how various events and situations made me feel in the moment, so that I can look back on them less objectively later on and better recognize my issues and emotions.
As I have now completed all Manipura activities, this is a roll for Anahata.
>>16836319 Muladhara (3): I approached somebody that was larger and tougher than me and trash talked them and demanded him the money that he stole. He was backed up with 3 friends and I could of easily gotten beaten up at any time. I usually never talk in peoples faces like that. I did it because I didn't want to be taken advantage of and I didn't want to be a coward anymore. I wanted to be someone you wouldn't want to mess with.
>>16848481 >How can you show more compassion towards others?
Stop holding back because of Oliver. Just because one stupid, filthy man raped me does not mean all men are rapists, and to be happy and have a healthy relationship with the men in my life I need to accept this.
>>16848486 >Tell about a time you went out of your way for the sake of others.
When I stopped in the hall when I was fourteen, and set down all my things, to gently take the things the man with the sling on his arm was carrying and rearrange them so they were easier for him to carry. I have never been so thankful in my life as I was for his kind words after that, and I believe no one has ever had a greater impact than he had.
>>16848489 How can I better understand my emotions?
To better understand my emotions, I need to stop over thinking things. I've always understood my emotions, they are intuition. I just use my brain too much, and it acts as a fog for my emotional intelligence.
>>16848498 How understanding my emotions will be beneficial
if I can understand how I feel, I won't need to change how I feel. I won't be in search of things which don't make me happy, solely because I have convinced myself that I'm feeling a way which I am not
>>16848528 Adapting to unforseen problems has been a strong suit of mine. I had to do so when I was abruptly kicked out of my mom's house for smoking weed in the backyard. I quickly began to ration my money, to sell all my drugs, and found a nice spot in the park to sleep
I can fully devote myself to the pursuit of happiness. Finding ways to enjoy every moment of my life has always been difficult for me, but it is what I believe heaven to be. I try to every day, but it's hard some days.
>>16848562 Anaharta 3: My ex stole a $150 bong from one of my close friends. If most people had done that, I would spend a lot of time trying to ruin their life. But, with her, I had no interest in it. I payed my friend back myself, because I wanted no tension between them.
>>16848570 Vishuddha 2: I try to turn all of my negative experiences into wisdom. I suppose having my old "friends" steal from me on a daily basis made me realize what someone looks like and acts like who i cannot trust. I've used it often.
>>16848583 Vishuddha 3: I feel guilty for a lot of things. Lying to my mom, pretending to be sober for months just so that I would have a place to stay. Lying to a few friends in sobriety, so that they would think that I had no part in helping one of there members leave the sobriety group. Never paying back someone who left me money.
>>16848601 My own failings in the past keep me dependent. Because I've given up everything I had at one point or another just to get high, I'm still stuck at square one. Almost like I just got out of high school, with no plans, trying to push through with a new course of action.
>>16848626 Vishuddha 5: A part of me regrets giving up all of my past opportunities. College, living in a house with a bunch of other cool guys, etc. It's all part of my path, though, so why regret a vital step in the path?
>>16848632 A monologue of something I am passionate about:
Lights. Fire. Friends all around. The smoke rises into the air. The bass vibrates the bodies of everyone present. This place is uncomfortable, yet, at the same time, it is home. It is a place where I am not alone, where I am with people who are just like me. Yet, it feels so foreign. I cannot speak to the other mes. I stand apart, and I simply watch the show.
>>16848670 Ajna 1: Thought and feeling need to live in balance. Making decisions purely based on thought or feeling will leave me helpless. Rather, I must combine the two in order to make the right decision.
>>16836319 Muladhara (1): I believe moving to a location outside of this country, maybe to Australia, would help me feel more secure. Knowing that this country has a lot of drama and hatred, it's definitely going down. I think making a lot of friends, getting a decent job that I could enjoy at least a little bit, and perusing my hobbies would make me feel secure too. I just don't feel not knowing what's going to happen the next day, next week, next year, ect.
>>16848686 To increase my intuition, I can simply stop overthinking things to such a degree. At work it could be as simple as asking someone what kind of meat they want on their sandwhich, but already deciding based on forethought what they want.
>>16848723 I recently had a dream that I was informed to stop changing the radio station at work by one of my coworkers. i continued to change the station, and two days later one of my coworkers warned me to stop, using the exact same wording as in my dream.
>>16836319 Muladhara (2): I have always avoided the situation of talking to people that I don't know. I have a bad case of social anxiety and OCD. I wish that I wouldn't avoid it but the thought of messing up and ruining my reputation terrifies me. I know that I'm a fun person when I open up, and I would be have a better reputation as an outgoing person rather than a quite person, but I just can't. I don't know why.
>>16836319 Muladhara (7): I fortunately haven't really had any terrifying events occur throughout my life, but there is one that will always stick with me. When I was 11, I woke up in the middle of the night and my bunk bed was rapidly shaking. I had never experienced anything demonic/supernatural activity. I didn't know if it was a person or a spirit. I didn't even move at all because I was so terrified. And it didn't stop. I was awake for 3 hours and decided to sleep through it because there was nothing I could do. I woke up at 12pm and it had stopped, but I had the most paranoid and timid feeling I have ever felt.
>>16836319 Svadhisthana (5): When I was 14 I began stealing things. I stole things from walmart, I stole money, and I stole things from other people simply just because I wanted it. I think I could have avoided it by thinking about the consequences and asking myself why I was doing it.
>>16848767 Svadhisthana (7): I get excited from receiving materialistic things or preparing for something good to happen. Sometimes I just get excited by thinking of something that I think that I could do. I also get excited by accomplishing things and staying on the right path. I think I could bring that enthusiasm to every aspect of my life by only thinking positive. But whenever I do that and things don't go as expected, it makes me really depressed and discouraged.
>>16848795 Manipura (5): I ask myself that question a lot, especially when it comes to anything that requires social action. I think that if I slowly achieve instead of going for it all at once, I could progressively fear failure less and less each time.
>>16848819 Anahata (9): Learning from mistakes and moving on from the past. Having a deep relationship with someone else could probably enhance it too because I can learn how they deal with their emotions and compare theirs to mine.
>>16848839 Anahata (4): I will step outside of my comfort zone. I will stop feeling bad for myself. I will push my emotions and fears away from reality. I will start devoting more energy into my school work rather than video games. I will work so hard to the point where my life will all be school work. Over all, the goal is simple. I WILL DO WHATEVER I CAN TO BE HAPPY AND PROUD OF MYSELF. I WILL HAVE NO REGRETS.
>>16848856 Anahata (6): I think that's my problem. I never go out of my way for others. I can't even think of a time I have. I'm not sure if it will change me in a positive way, but in the end I'm doing something for others and I will feel good about myself for once.
>>16848863 Anahata (3): As soon as a read this I automatically thought of my father. He abused my mom emotionally and physically, he put his life over others, he threatened to kill my family and friends, and he killed a man and got away with it. If my mom ever did something like this, I would never forgive her and I would cut my communication with her. But for some reason, the love between me and my dad have never broken.
>>16848877 Anahata (7) I know for a fact I can enhance it by pushing myself and become motivated. Every time I try to stay fit and I actually enjoy working out, I give it all up. And what I have noticed is that this happens when I skip a day of doing it. I think I need to work out every day and think of the results I will get out of it.
>>16848886 Anahata (2) I want to devote myself to changing my activities daily. I want to not know what I'm going to do the next day, rather than know I'm just going to go to school, go home and play video games, and sleep. I want to expand and pursue new hobbies and never find myself bored. I want to never be bored or feel like I've been doing something for too long. Maybe I'll start creating art or building props of some sort. I should probably start finding outside activities too. Most importantly I need to devote myself to facing my social fears.
>>16848938 Vishuddha (8): Being an optimist, turning a failure into a learning practice is something I do a lot. It helps me cope with the fact that I have lost something that I didn't expect to. But maybe I don't do it enough, or maybe I don't do it correctly. Maybe I should look at my past failures. I've failed to do a lot in my life. I have missed many great opportunities. I have said things that I didn't want to say. But I think it makes me stronger every time I fail or make a mistake. Because now I know I won't do it again. I think my failures might benefit me. In the future, it's always possible that something really important comes up, possibly life changing, and I'll know what to do and what not to do. It makes me realize, failure isn't that bad. It will come in handy one day.
>>16848997 Vishuddha (5): I regret rejecting the chance to meet great people. I worried about what others would think of me, when the bigger problem is people do need some way to think of me either way, whether it's good or bad. Otherwise, you're just a face in the crowd. I wish I would have talked to girls that liked me, I wish I would have just been down to earth. I would rather regret saying something wrong or embarrassing than regretting to not have gotten to know someone. Everyone embarrasses themselves, everyone makes themselves they look bad. I know that I'm a pretty fun person to be with. I have nothing to worry about. Whether I'm outgoing or introverted, the outcome will be no different than what others get.
>>16849031 Vishuddha (1): I determine what's right and wrong by thinking whether it will effect anybody who doesn't deserve it. In my opinion, it's not wrong to steal from a rich man, but it's very wrong to steal from a poor man. What's right and wrong for me is whether or not someone is getting what they deserve.
>>16849052 Vishuddha (2): Not too long ago I had a psychotic delusion and ended up affecting a lot of people. It was a scary experience, and it kept going on. I was very close to committing murder. Luckily I was medicated at the right time and I'm perfectly fine now. And I did get wisdom out of it. It made me realize that people don't choose the be evil. Evil chooses the people. Everyone has a reason for doing what they do, and it's not their fault. Everyone is born with a different personality and you can't change that.
>>16849404 Adjna (4): I need to focus on the task at hand and not overthink. Too many thoughts makes mental clarity less clear every time. The process is simple. You need to think of 3 things. 1. What you're trying to think 2. Whether or not it is benefit or not 3. If in the end it makes you a happier person
>>16849434 Adjna (5): I need to think for myself. If someone told me that the sky is cloudy, I would probably believe it. But if I look with my OWN eye, I can see how cloudy it is, if it looks like it will rain, and if it really is even cloudy in the first place. The same goes for my minds eye. Sure, I can take what people tell me as a fact. But seeing for yourself and looking BEYOND the fact and learning things for yourself allows you to use your mind to take information rather than other people giving you the information.
>>16849465 Adjna (6) Learn what you need, meditate on it after. When you're told how to do something, you learn how to do it first, rather than ask questions at the same time. Focus on what you're learning, take the information in, and put it together after.
>>16849483 Ajdna (3): I have been having dreams that my mother is yelling at me. I'll say ask an innocent question and in the dream she'll scream at me and I don't know why. I think it means I'm under too much control. I'm too afraid to act on to things because I'm afraid of how my mother would react.
