Begin to perceive your unconscious as an integral part of who you are. The more you are tuned into your unconscious, the more access you will have to the powerful thoughts and emotions stored there. From here awareness and more importantly acceptance of self is possible.
As you become aware and accepting of self, you begin to appreciate that you are responsible for your own actions and the only actions you can control are your own. Equally important you can begin to appreciate that you choose your emotional response to a particular stimulus. In effect you realise that you ‘choose’, or allow reactions. This provides the power to write your own story.
