Meditation with Jounaling

As you continue to practice meditation, moments may arise when memories from the past or buried emotions resurface.

These emotions and memories, submerged in the depths of the mind or unconscious, may be remnants of experiences that were not naturally processed or strong impressions from the past.

They could be linked to trauma, complexes, or defense mechanisms.

When such memories or unresolved emotions surface during meditation, it’s important not to immediately try to fix or resolve them, as attempting to do so could have adverse effects.

Instantly seeking solutions or remedies for long-standing issues of the mind, which may have persisted for years or even decades, is unrealistic.

The most practical and effective approach is simply to observe these emotions as they arise.

By doing so, you may experience a moment when suddenly the intense emotions dissipate.

Emotions are inherently transient, regardless of our intentions.

Accepting this natural fluctuation is key.

Alongside this, it’s beneficial to record the circumstances and conditions under which these memories and emotions emerge, either in a keyword-based format or in a diary-like style.

By documenting these experiences, you can more concretely organize the ambiguous memories and emotions within your mind.

Additionally, through these records, you can observe changes in the frequency and conditions under which these memories and emotions arise over time.

By treating these emotions and their fluctuations as objects of observation detached from oneself, you can gain insight into your own nature and understandings.

Meditating on these emotions and their changes can ultimately serve as a shortcut to understanding yourself and finding your true nature.
