W hen you dive into your own consciousness, as in yoga nidra, your awareness passes through these levels. As you go on in the practice you dive deeper and deeper.

52 Beyond the Body and M ind he initial purpose o f yoga nidra is to relax the body and the mind, and when you come to the last stage o f the practice you try to dissociate yourself from the body and th mind. Tension, stresses and strains only afflict you when you identify yourself with the body and the m ind. In the night, when you e n te r p rofou nd sleep, the process of dissociation takes place automatically. You d on ’t rem em ber your name, your body or the nature o f your surroundings during profound sleep.

You will be surprised how clearly and vividly the memories will manifest. • An extension of the previous practice is to recall and witness past traumas. If the witness attitude is m aintained, this becomes an effective m ethod of overcom ing the negative samskaras o f the mind, but it can be extended fu rth er by recreating the experience in the m ind, only this time with an outcom e that would have left a positive im pression rather than a negative one. T his not only helps ease the pain, but prepares the m ind to respond positively when similar situations occur in the future.
