WHY YOU NEED TO FIND YOUR ALTER-EGO

Over the weekend, I had the honour of presenting an academic paper celebrating my academic mentor Dr. ‘Bode Ojoniyi.
.
In critical appraisal of his plays For The Love Of Sisyphus and Dance Of The Beast, I subjected the plays to Sigmund Frued’s Hypnosis and Psychoanalytic theory where Frued talks about the different levels of consciousness, the relationship between hypnosis and sleep and more. (Oh! How I miss literature ??)
.
Let me take a pause here before I start writing another paper. Lol ?
.
One of the levels of consciousness for which Mesmer and Frued’ s works became popular is the alter-ego, the existence of an alternate self/dual consciousness. That is the state where you can feel another “self” with distinct personality in your same body.
.
Let me help you understand.
.
When you’re about to wake up from sleep (this exclude Lagosians for obvious reasons ?), you’re sometimes caught between your conscious and subconcious state. You can feel yourself having dual personality. At this state, you’re not fully awake,  yet you’re not fully asleep. You’re in the state of hypnosis, exactly at the point where you feel your alternate self (alter-ego). It’s a beautiful state.
.
If you’ve ever gotten to this floating point, you’ll understand what I’m talking about perfectly.
.
One of the reasons why the discussion of the alter-ego, consciousness and the human mind is important is because that is the point where you can interrogate your being. There, you can find answers to life’s many questions and can really touch your deeply rooted self. You can ask questions about your passion, what you should do, how you should approach life, your regular and alternate self can converse and more.
.
The sad thing about this state of consciousness is that you cannot be in that state for a very long time except your hypnosis is induced. In other words, you cannot naturally be in that state for too long.? The goodnews is that I have found a way that can still help you achieve closely what you would at your hypnotic state.
.
This post is already too long, I’ll share the other way with you tomorrow if you turn on your post notification now.
.
Errrm! For those of us in Lagos, this jumping out of bed to beat traffic is doing us a disservice ooo. Na why we no too follow for the discussion ?
.
See you tomorrow and turn on your post notification now.

Peace, Love and Cold Zobo.
