Samskaras




The past shows up in the nervous system as Samskaras. Samskaras are positive and negative events that have been held in the nervous system and they arise all the time like waves in the ocean.


When one is present, the awareness of Samskaras becomes more evident and then they are allowed to be released.


You can think of them as resistors in an electrical circuit or system. Samskaras represent intensities of the past. They can be positive or negative but here we will focus on negative because that is a much easier analogy to start.


The nervous system has a natural resting point but as energy flows through the system, there can be blockages that function much in the same way as resistors in electricity. The resistance is felt in the nervous system usually as a reaction/emotion.
