Dear Acharya ji,
I know, you have told us many times that awareness is a key tool. I am doing sadhana regularly and practicing awareness as well. I feel that existing tendencies , habits are the big hurdles in the spiritual path.
Does staying aware can remove or reduce the tendencies or imprints from the past? OR the TSV sadhana in combination with awareness does it fully?

Hope you are engaged in MahaSHivaRatri sadhana today.
The brief answer to your question about how to get rid of the tendencies and habits is : Awareness along with Tattva Shakti Vigyaan processes is the complete solution for the practitioner to cleanse and balance him/herself from all distracting and negative traits gradually.
Awareness is the spontaneous self-effort which is mastered through persistent practice while Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practices create a transformative energy cloud around the practitioner. The personality of Sadhaka cocooned within the positive energy-cloud is more receptive to modulations and changes. Though for the uninitiated merely awareness is the tool for bringing about such desirable changes and many people succeed using only awareness as well however such modifications are superficial and tend to move in the subconscious (deeper in vigyaanmaya kosha) without getting completely resolved or wiped out.
Purification of intellect (buddhi) and movement of your nature (prakriti) from Tamasik to Sattvic is not accelerated in absence of any energy & spiritual processes. So in that sense all Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioner (including those who are not in discipleship programme and are engaged in Panch-Mahabhuta Shakti Kriya) have much better environment for bringing about the positive changes in their personal life.
