I was going to wait to post, but I keep getting more and more involved with the subliminal.
Today I had my first Krav Maga lesson after running the subliminal.
I did a few things differently than I usually do.
One, I grabbed an energy drink before I went. This is part of my being prepared, something that I will actively be working on.
Two, I automatically created a state for training. I reminded myself why I was training and how much I looked forward to it that day to get myself in the mood. I was dreading training, even thought about not going, but I pushed through and when I pushed through the inertia, my unconscious suggested, or just brought up positive feelings for me that helped.
I’ve seen somewhere that the reason why Navy Seals and other soldiers are so effective is because they enter certain states for combat where they’re in the flow that allows them to bypass their normal limits. Definitely not a super soldier state, yet, but I will be running this in the long term. It will be incredibly beneficial after a year to just have these skills so deeply ingrained within me.
During training I was able to enter a flow state and I performed really well given the fact that I’ve done less than a dozen lessons so far.
I did all of this on 3 hours of sleep.
I finished a 2.5 mile hike after the lesson too. I take hikes afterward every so often, but it will pay to be consistent as I already have the adrenaline flowing, so its easy.
I believe this may be the ultimate lifestyle subliminal for our present world and will post more about some of the mental aspects later.
Beyond relaxation, theres an element of having to know who you are, what you value and what your boundaries are and what you will and will not compromise on. Without knowing these things I’m understanding I’m open to manipulation.
Secondly theres a grounding effect where instead of spending all time indoors on my phone, I’ve found myself outside for a few hours today. I’m considering my death positively, who I want around and how I want to truly spend my last days, not just what I want to achieve.
I’m also becoming more and more aware of social dynamics, or they’re being brought back up in my awareness.
Specifically, group think and how easily the force of a group can help or hinder you.
For example, on Emperor many viewed me as an asshole at a coffee shop I used to frequent. As they all shared how much they disliked me, their dislike of me continued to grow and grow. Even small, innocent actions would be percevied negatively to the point where the environment actually changed around me and my intuition told me I wasn’t wanted. That mixture of finding a scapegoat, the social approval, feeling better than someone is a very addicting mixture and I’m growing my awareness of it.
