Subconscious Decision Making
So I've had these unfamiliar experiences recently and I just wanted to share them. Also I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this over the course of their practice? Maybe these experiences are normal and there has been some blockage in me which has been removed?
I've been having these moments of almost instantaneous subconscious decision making. Like a puzzle or confusing situation will present itself. I will be confused about what to do so I'll just wait searching for an answer, then this crack, this window of opportunity will appear and before I know it I'm doing something that for my everyday self is uncharacteristic and subtle but also incredible.
To give an example, I was on a boat when my sunglasses fell off into the water. I remember a looooooonnnggg pause where I debated whether to go after them or not; I wasn't too familiar or trusting of the people I was with. Then I saw this like window, I can't even explain it but before I knew it I had jumped in the water with all my clothes on and I rescued those sunglasses. The people around kept talking about how epic it was and supposedly this pause where I debated about going in after the sunglasses was only a split second although to me it had felt like 5.
In alternative examples I've spoken to strangers and told friends off. I'll see this window and something to do or say will just appear to me from nowhere. I think it might be a sign that my practice is working? About a month ago I switched meditation techniques.
