Metacognition

When we are not aware of why we think what we think it can lead to a feeling of being out of control, as we may constantly manifest undesirable circumstances in our life, without any insight as to the root of the problem.

Meta-cognition, is the act of thinking about one’s own thoughts. Whenever I have something (or someone) stuck in my brain, I might not get over it until I make myself aware (typically with meditation and self-reflection) of why I’m thinking about it in the first place. For example, a new person or place could cause us to have a strong emotional reaction because there are conscious and subconscious processes that get triggered in our own mind from past experiences.

When we are not aware of why we think what we think it can lead to a feeling of being out of control, as we may constantly manifest undesirable circumstances in our life, without any insight as to the root of the problem. Being familiar with one’s own thoughts, feelings, and triggers leads to more intentional action and ultimately more control in life.
