Womenlines Influencer for Yoga, Archana Amlapure sharing this month is about how Yoga Contemplation can be used for getting rid of negative emotions and phobias. There is a difference in Meditation and Contemplation. While Meditation is resting mind chatter, contemplation is training mind about certain thought only-
Do you feel stuck and stressed? Are you tired of dealing with illness or chronic diseases?
We humans carry and accumulate so many emotions within us. The mind is collections of thoughts, which arises from emotions like sadness, happiness, anger, frustration, fear, surprise etc. Emotions arise from our daily activities, interaction with self and society & our own expectations, in response to some event and the list goes on.
Some emotions get expressed and some emotions not. The major reasons why someone don’t express fully maybe the circumstances or don’t feel the necessity. The pleasant emotions associated with person or event when not expressed, get stored in your subconscious mind and is stored in memory. But if emotions are unpleasant and associated with pain, distrust, bad experiences, it will be stored in bad memory.
If these negative emotions stay long, it manifests into diseases e.g Diabetes, Migraine, Arthritis, insomnia, digestive related problems and many more. Contemplation is a positive auto-suggestion. It helps to release and clear those emotions and bad habits. Contemplation is seeing things carefully as it is – truth nothing else. Auto-suggestions/resolutions or contemplation is the ways to train your mind and face the truth.
How does it work on subconscious mind?
When you instruct mind, again and again, that thought will become part of the subconscious mind and scientifically each cell also store this as a memory and it becomes part of you and then a habit. Scientifically this is useful change and psychological all well. The cells follow the suggestions given to them. Thus, the feeling and neurons can be trained to do the desired thing. For a cerebral cleansing, the use of emotions is necessary. This helps to replace old habits/traditions with a new one. The same feeling if repeated can create sound waves. The sound waves recreate similar to sound waves in cosmos which radiate positive energy and the practitioner benefits positively. Contemplation, auto-suggestion, resolutions are not only meditation techniques but the process of inner transformation, it is the process of training every cell.
How to contemplate (practice)?
To practice contemplations, your mind needs to be calm and breathing deep and slow, when you are in the composed and calm state, you can see your feelings. The calm and steady mind thinks better. In this state, you can tap into your subconscious mind.
– Sit in Meditation, relax your mind and body
-Once your breathing is smoother and deeper, repeat your contemplation/Affirmation/Auto suggestion up to 9 times mentally with full faith and trust. Use short positive sentences as a resolution/contemplation
And remember, unless you believe what you are saying, it won’t work.
– You need to do it regularly and consistently. For better results.

If you are busy and can’t practice Meditation, you can repeat affirmations anytime of the day but with full focus.
