The Self-Observation Meditation is the first key practice in the Rise 2 Realize method, as described in The Seeker’s Manual.
Mastering this technique naturally allows you to create space between you and your thoughts. As a result, you slow down your emotional reactions to trigger events and make better decisions by being consciously present in the moment, at will.
The practice of self–observation is the gateway to a deeper self-awareness, which is the first step towards a personal transformation that leads to a more joyful and fulfilling life. When you practice this technique regularly, you will start to have more time to discern and access to your inner knowing and wisdom. As a result, you will naturally take things less personally and preserve the energy that you usually drain through emotional reactions towards stressful situations and difficult people.
