Further, to develop the witness attitude it helps to
Project oneself on a screen and then observe and see all that is moving there and how it moves and what happens[7].<ref></ref>
Look at oneself objectively as a third person engaging in the surface level activities. One need not like or dislike the activity but sincerely observe the movements of nature.
==By Developing the Contact with the Psychic Being==
The mental being within watches, observes and passes judgment on all that happens in you. The psychic does not watch and observe in this way like a witness, but it feels and knows spontaneously in a much more direct and luminous way by the very purity of its own nature and the divine instinct within it, and so, whenever it comes to the front it reveals at once what are the right and what the wrong movements in one’s nature.

==By Being Vigilant==
Secondly, vigilance helps in self-observation. If one remains vigilant, not fearful, then with the increase of the Force upholding oneself, a power of seeing and self-observation comes. The power of seeing is accompanied by the power of self-control and the power to reject the wrong turn or the wrong reaction when it comes. [8]<ref></ref>
==By Developing a Quiet Mind==
Thirdly, quietude and detachment of the mind helps in self-observation. If the whole mind remains quiet and detached, then to observe the vital movement without giving assent and rejecting it becomes more easy. [9]<ref></ref> ==By exercising Exercising the will Will to changeChange==
By putting each element that enters our consciousness before the will to change while remaining awake, comparing, observing, studying and slowly acting, we are able to hone our ability at self-observation and make interesting discoveries within oneself.
==By Educating the Senses==
By the education of the senses the growth of one's general education is aided. The senses can, in particular, be used as instruments of observation, control and knowledge. For instance, the way one keeps one’s room is often a reflection of where one is in one’s consciousness. Taking this feedback, and consciously trying to use the sense of colour and form, order and organisation helps develop the ability to use one’s senses a logical, rational, useful way. Going further, it also helps discover who one is in the conscious way of designing one’s room.[11] <ref></ref>
=Difficulties in Self-Observation=
==Focussing on the negative==
To be always observing faults and wrong movements brings depression and discourages the faith. [13] One has to observe them, of course, but not stress them.[14] <ref></ref>
Instead it is important to focus on the good part and give it strength, whilst not denying the limitations and the wrong movements. .
