Self-observation is a key step towards gaining self-knowledge—a goal emphasized by many sacred texts and traditions as being essential for spiritual development.

Techniques for self-observation involve directing attention inwards, to study one’s own psychology and to see directly how thoughts, feelings, and inner states work. These can be sitting techniques or practiced during the course of daily life.

Self-observation is valued as a way of understanding negative or harmful thoughts and emotions and experiencing higher states of consciousness. This provides a solid foundation for spiritual change.
