Due to a lack of sleep one recent night, I called upon my Nephesch. I ordered it to take the energy that kept me awake, give me a peaceful sleep and then fill me with the energy as I woke. I was obeyed. I felt like I had discovered something. This exercise was repeated the next day.
One word: Mistake
Since then behaviors have arisen that I have avoided for some time. Defense by attack being the main one. At this point, the defense is unnecessary. Silliness!
I learned these behaviors come from the Nephesch rather than the automatic personality. I also know that if I draw on the power of the lower soul it gains influence. This also means that I use the power of the Nephesch on purpose with a mindset towards getting in control of that influence. I can basically set a trap for myself. Eventually, I will gain strength and put my lower soul to my use rather than being dragged around by it. Even though that only happens occasionally now, I feel this is worth pursuing.
