Awareness and consciousness

“The perception stored away in the body of an unwanted child is a repressed perception, but it is nonetheless accurate for that: “They want to kill me. I’m in mortal danger.” This perception can vanish from the adult mind once it has become conscious. Then the former emotion (fear, anxiety, stress) will turn into a memory that says: “I was in danger before but I am not any longer.” Normally, such a conscious memory is either proceeded or accompanied by the experience of the old emotions and by feelings of grief” –Alice Miller The Body Never Lies

Some of us are not allowed our own understanding as children. This leads to anxiety, fear and unnecessary stress as we age. As individual adults we have the power to take control of our own thoughts and emotions to be a more centered human living without the painful anxiety. Awareness and consciousness can be achieved through repetition; a practice. The action can be simple as sitting for 5 minutes or synchronized movement and breath for 3 hours.
