My thoughts are never far away from my unconscious thinking. I’ve always had something to draw inspiration from and given my experiences, sadly that’s true. But introspection isn’t a one minute wonder. It’s something that must be honed.
We know what introspection is but why should we use it? Well sadly, without the examination or observation of our own emotional and mental processes, we can never grow. Without introspection, we will never learn to look within or observe ourselves.
We will never know what it means to contemplate, ponder, reflect, nor what it is to be thoughtful, we will never know meditation or how to use reflection. Introspection can be used at any time, it’s easy to do and doesn’t take a lot of effort. Five minutes is all it takes. To get started you just need to sit and focus on one particular thing that’s bothering you.
Quiet introspection can be extremely valuable. It helps us to think about our life and what things mean, how we feel about certain things and people. Introspection not only allows us to think about our lives more, but if used frequently, we will begin to hear the little voice inside our head, talk back at us.
Introspection allows us to re-visit our experiences so that we understand our lives and experiences. It allows us to deal with our issues and that enables change.
