Late last year, I had a day where I didn’t get out of bed until noon.
Is that normal for me? No, I’m usually up by 7am or so on weekends.
Did I go to bed late? No, I went to bed at the usual time.
Did I have a rough night? Nope – slept fine.
I must have really needed it, huh?
Except I woke up feeling both rested and exhausted.
And before you make any lewd and crude jokes, it was nothing like that either.
Here’s what happened.
I woke up and I felt things inside of me holding me back. These were old emotional blocks – the sort I’ve carried around most of my life.
The source of my greatest self-inflicted miseries.
I’d fallen into the trap of being too busy for self-care, so I took some time. I used my Problem Slayer technique on the first block I could find.
Then I blasted the next one.
Then the next one.
At some stage, I passed out. When I woke up an hour or so later, I found another block and went after it.
And so on.
I don’t recommend doing this. The Problem Slayer is intense, even a little dangerous. Slay the wrong thing and you might rob yourself of your greatest strength.
As with everything else, it pays to start small, practice and build up to the big stuff.
This rampage through my own mind was clearly draining. I haven’t slept like that in yonks.
But it was the right thing to do. On the other side of it, my mind feels clearer and cleaning. And bigger, as if my consciousness has grown a little.
That’s what happens when you stop running all the old patterns.
I wonder how long it would have taken traditional talk therapy to get this result. Probably years, assuming I had a great therapist. I managed this in one morning, plus some time here and there to clean things up.
Again, I don’t recommend rampaging like this. It practically knocked me into a coma. Then I spent the rest of the day (read: the afternoon) somewhere between brilliant and foggy.
Used in small doses, the Problem Slayer will free you without the side effects.
How do you get it, I hear you ask?
It’s module 12 of 19 in my Monster Mind Edukaré program.
