Yoga Nidra, Self-Hypnosis and the Mind

Impressing the intellect. 

The knowledge that enters the brain does not fully impress itself there due to the intellectualization process. What causes this to happen? The responsiveness of the mind and intellect increases when the relaxing process is completed. The receptivity is reduced when the awareness is connected to all of the senses. Understanding this relationship is the key to your yoga nidra's success. 

However, if you withdraw your thoughts a little and reach a condition that is neither profound sleep nor fully awake, whatever impressions enter your mind at that time become potent and stay there. There are several mental levels. 

Some soils are extremely hard, while others are quite soft. Because intelligence and reasoning are active in the conscious mind, it is like hard soil. 

  • The act of examining things is known as intellect. 
  • It does not accept everything and also rejects some things. 
  • The inner awareness, on the other hand, is not like that. 
  • Whatever impact you leave on the subconscious mind is irreversible. It will flourish, and the fruits will improve your life in every way. 
  • As a result, if you sleep in yoga nidra, you need not be concerned. On the other hand, it's possible that's more effective. 
  • But there's one thing you must remember: 'I'm not going to sleep.' It is not a good idea to try to sleep. 
  • You should strive to stay alert since yoga nidra is not possible if you sleep. Let's say you listen to a tape before going to bed, but you don't hear anything. Then, when you wake up the next morning, you should listen to the tape again. 
  • With your whole attention, listen to the replay. This will establish a channel of communication or a link between the aware and unconscious minds. This is how people learn languages. 

You can learn anything if you put your mind to it. If you wish to break a habit, the appropriate seeds or sankalpas should be placed in the unconscious first, and then you must listen to them when aware. For the future, this is a critical science of yogic self-transformation. 

The hypnayogic state is when you're in a trance. 

The awareness is in a stage between waking and sleeping in yoga nidra, yet it is not susceptible to either. 

This is known as the hypnagogic state in contemporary psychology, but I like to refer to it as the hypnayogic state. But ‘yoga nidra' is the finest name of all. 

The mind is extremely receptive in this stage. Languages and other disciplines may be learnt in a short amount of time. Suggestions made at this stage are effective in eliminating undesirable behaviors and tendencies. 

Yoga nidra, in fact, may be used to lead the mind to achieve any goal. This is the key to renowned yogis and swamis' amazing achievements. 

Yoga nidra allows you to hear intuitive messages from your subconscious mind. 

This state is a wellspring of literary and creative inspiration. It's also where the most innovative scientific breakthroughs come from. 

Wolfgang von Goethe utilized his inspirations and intuitions to overcome challenges that arose in his work. 

In the famous ‘thought experiments' that lead to the theory of relativity, Kekule discovered the circular molecular structure of benzene, Noble laureate Niels Bohr observed the planetary structure of the atom, and Einstein sped his awareness to the speed of light. 

The intuitions gained via yoga nidra help one to locate the solution to all issues inside oneself. In whatever situation, one's genuine essence and integrity appear, allowing him to live a meaningful and serene existence. 

This is the 'third eye' opening, which brings consciousness beyond the conditioned personality's tensions and complexities. 

One's entire existence is saturated with divine consciousness, and one's mind and body are no longer emotionally linked with them. 

“Therefore, understand with a calm mind your own true essence, which is the one pure, undivided awareness underneath the restless mind, which is constituted of the entire cosmos in all its diversity,” says the Tripura Rahasya . 

Realize the condition between sleep and awake with a calm mind... This is the true Self, in which one is no longer deluded.”
