The introspective path. A path to rediscover yourself
When you start an introspective path to rediscover yourself, you need reference points;
in this section you will find the experiences of introspective researchers who have lived them firsthand.
Here are examples of researchers who lived periods of inner chaos and suffering.
The introspective path. A deep inner work (Marcella)
I am practising Introspection since five years. I started after having gone through a “difficult” moment, one of those moments in which you have to choose between two alternatives:
- to complain and curse fate
- to engage in deep inner work to understand what is wrong. Of course, before choosing the second option, I stumbled into the first one, and this allowed me apparent pleasure and ephemeral relief. After having satisfied my need to complain, I could get out of it; I started an introspective path, and a world opened up; I’m still getting to know it today.
An inner search sometimes painful, but exciting (Gabriella).
To get closer to introspective research has been fascinating. My inner work generates positive energy, and I learn to know better and better how my inner mechanisms act.
A new experience for me that of introspective art; a very effective work tool, a search sometimes painful but very interesting and deep.
You learn a lot by getting inside yourself!
I want to know fears, blocks and resistances (Raffaele).
My start was a bit like Marcella’s, although I am more interested in knowing fears, blocks and resistances; “thanks” to a disabling anxiety disorder, I finally found a way out of that mechanism, and got to face reality.
At first I hoped I could find a “magic pill” to heal the feeling of malaise that sometimes overwhelms me, making me anxious. I tried many magic pills (courses of various kinds, books, natural and homeopathic remedies, yoga, meditation…) I tried really many… but I couldn’t get out.
Now, after some time, I have learned to listen to what moves within me, and I get along even with anxiety. This is a phrase that until two years ago.. I never dreamed I would even think… let alone say. Today I say it with conviction, because I experienced it is a signal for me to pay attention to something that I need to see INSIDE ME.
I started, and slowly, things got lighter and lighter.
