The "id" (pronounced "id," not I.D.) is a Freudian concept:
The id (Latin for "it", German: Es) is the disorganized part of the personality structure that contains a human's basic, instinctual drives. Id is the only component of personality that is present from birth. It is the source of our bodily needs, wants, desires, and impulses, particularly our sexual and aggressive drives. The id contains the libido, which is the primary source of instinctual force that is unresponsive to the demands of reality. The id acts according to the "pleasure principle"—the psychic force that motivates the tendency to seek immediate gratification of any impulse—defined as seeking to avoid pain or unpleasure (not "displeasure") aroused by increases in instinctual tension.
If you notice, this seems to be the primary drive of people these days--sex, drugs, alcohol, stimulants, violent games,... anything to stimulate those dopamine receptors.
I lost my nerves again today while practising disc golf and wondered about why I do that thing if I just get angry everytime I go out and play that. I noticed once again that my temperament is something that I've always had from child. I tend to lose my nerves in almost every field of things, events, happenings, but mostly mishaps of my own doing. Thats the reason why I dont play games like "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive" and "World of Warcraft", I just dont want to get angry. So now I tend to stay away from those things that get "under my skin" like that. Although I could still go out to practise disc golf since it requires more physical movement than video games.
What you think should I try to be more calm while practising or give it up entirely? Knowing that I get pissed off quite rapidly and if irritation continues it escalades exponentially into oblivion or something like that. Maybe there is a way to train oneself, I have tried to do so in past when I was into New Age belief, but that did last only a year or so. I did do alot more meditation back then. Nowadays I cant get into that sort of meditative state, too much distracting thoughts and sometimes outer noises. But I gotta start try... DOING it again.
I recommend researching Energy clearing. Instead of meditating to detach one from one's thoughts, energy clearing, how I've been doing it, is visualizing yourself in front of you while holding a vacuum cleaner in your own hands that sucks up any negativity, blockages, debris, doubts, and fears and going over each of your chakras. In this process, you're not interacting with your spatial body, but your temporal body, your energy system, that holds on to the energies which compose
the limiting unconscious belief systems that hold you back and put you into those fearful or angry states of being. You see, whenever your anger is triggered by losing in a competition, what's actually happening is the loss in the competition is making all of these connected neural pathways associated with Loss fire off through your brain
, and these connections link memories and fears associated
with that feeling of Loss.
Regret. Pain. Loneliness. Struggle. That one event of losing a game sends energy through all of those connections in your brain all at the same time,
which generates a lot of heat and a strong frustrated feeling.
In my experience of doing energy cleaning, I've come across the silliest things that are connected to any negativity I am looking to dissolve. But the Id, working from a foundation of pain and pleasure, makes connections only off those basic principles. That's It's
logic -- not the same kind of logic of the neo-cortex/super-ego. Similar to what I think LB posted not too long ago, the "shadows" of your mind appear bigger when the light is further away from them. Energy clearing brings to consciousness these shadows actual size. So do the work inside and put them back into place.
I used to do these energy clearing exercises intermittently; at my own leisure. But as I've come to see more positive "coincidences" and good luck happen, yes, as a direct result of doing these, I basically clean myself in this way everyday now, and have been for a couple months.
About 9 months ago, I was really wanting to lose weight for my health, so I got a pedometer and made sure to get my steps in everyday. Doing this, along with calorie counting, I knew for a fact
that I would lose weight because the numbers said I would. I did this for 3 months... I'd lose a couple pounds here, then gain it right back. The tried and true science failed me. I gave up the pedometer and somewhere along the line, with all the energy clearing I was doing, it occurred to me to just keep doing this because it would enlighten me. It would make me feel better in every part of my being (hence, go over and suck out all the negativity out of every
chakra.) So I did that.
Last month, I was at a relative's house and I stepped on their scale in the bathroom, just for fun. It said I had lost 8 pounds. I joked with my relative, I really like your scale. It says I lost a lot of weight. When I got back home, a couple days passed, and I was curious, but a little hesistant to see if I had actually lost weight according to the scale that said I hadn't during all that time I was running and worrying about my health to
It confirmed my relative's scale was not incorrect.
I had lost weight, not by working out, not by changing a single thing in my regular diet, but my actively engaging and clearing my unconscious negative belief systems in every capacity. (For emphasis in repetition, cleanse every
chakra!) All I can deduce is that the body, out of stress caused by unconscious fear, holds to fat as if it were a shield. A living shield with both spatial and temporal components. And since I "lost weight" on the temporal side, clearing out a lot of internal, unconscious "baggage," an equal and reciprocal effect occurred, and I lost weight. (And no it wasn't muscle. My gut looks a little smaller now.)
When I first wanted to write this to you, I thought the cleansing of the lower three chakras would benefit you the most, because those are the ones related to the animalistic qualities of the body that are associated with the Id. For the reasons that:
-The Id is the only part of the mind that has been in motion since birth, and resides primarily in the unconscious part of the mind.
-This means that it is intrinsically tied to your physical animal needs, since it's been active since you were a baby, before the ego could be developed.
-People will do stupid things if the pleasure of the Id is suppressed or ignored for too long.
-Anger is tied to the pain/pleasure principle of the Id.
But, all in all, your anger may be rooted
in the Id, but the Id influences the Ego and both of them influence the Super-ego, the attributes of which you'll find in the definitions of the higher chakras. So that is why all of them need cleaning if you want to truly resolve your anger. Not to say that anger can be fully dissipated; it surely should not! Anger serves a purpose. But since it is out of balance, as can be sensed by your own frustration of becoming angry, you need to put those shadows back into place by clearing out all of these, and I'm serious, wild, unchecked connections
that your brain has been making, connecting a loss of a game to, for heaven's sake, anything
that causes you displeasure.
People may choose to live their lives mostly unconscious of themselves and their environment, but after all the work I've been doing, I'm only realizing that the brain works non-stop and is a genetic genius. Use that fact to your advantage, consciously, and do the work at the causal level, where it all starts: in your soul. Your temporal body is your energy system. As you clear it, you'll get conscious flickers of all of these things that your brain connects to whatever stress you're clearing, so you'll know it's not new-age self-deception. You'll have moments when you're like, holy shit.. that's dumb. I can't believe that was connected to that. Or old interesting memories can come back that you haven't relived in decades, that make you go, Omg... I can't remember the last time I remembered that. And sometimes you'll have epiphanies or just get some really great ideas about other things you're working on.
I just visualize all the negativity and junk that I'm sucking out as black particles, goo, remnants. You'll let yourself get more creative with the process the more you do it, like any skill.
That's the best I can describe the process. Hope it helps. Ask if you have any questions or comments.
