I have a pretty broad definition of reconciliation.
I think of it as all changes and experiences–positive and negative, pleasant and unpleasant–that occur as you’re transitioning to a new way of being.
The word literally means the process of adjusting things so that agreement, or harmony, is re-established.
Agreement with what? With the new condition you are working to attain.
If I lift weights after a long period of inactivity, one change that will happen is that I’ll feel the pain and soreness of ripped and damaged muscle tissue for the next few days. That is reconciliation. Another change that will happen is that my body will grow stronger, denser, and bigger muscle tissue. That is also reconciliation.
Reconciliation is neither bad nor good. It’s change.
If I use crap training methods, then my reconciliation may involve damage. That’s not ‘because of reconciliation’, is because of the training methods I’m using. If I adjust them to be more effective, safer, healthier, etc., my reconciliation process will also be beneficial.
So, I think that rather than worrying about reconciliation itself, it makes sense to identify specific practices or details that might be throwing things off, and then adjust them.
But I might be missing something here or may be wrong about some of it. So, I’m typing it here.
So far, my own reconciliation experiences have felt kind of organic. I don’t mean comfortable. But it tends to be stuff like feeling confused or getting frustrated about a particular situation or question in my life.
I don’t tend to get (or I haven’t noticed) the purely physical reconciliation experiences. It’ll be more like a mood or a state of mind.
Also, the experiences I get are pretty similar to other experiences I’ve had that were not related to subliminal use. So they don’t seem very dramatic, in that sense.
I wonder if this is because I’ve been working on and dealing with crap for so many years.
Anyway, what’s your experience and what do you think ?
