Samsaya is recognized as something that can be a confusing and unpleasant experience for a yogi, and one which feels personal, even though it is actually experienced by all. This is considered to be the result of the ego personalizing the struggle as a way of deterring the yogi from experiencing true unity and oneness.
Ways around or through samsaya are to become more grounded in a yoga practice, and continue to practice yoga with honesty and focus. The more concentration and an attitude of non-attachment that's cultivated, the easier it is said to be to overcome samsaya. It is also helped by a greater yearning to follow a spiritual path.
Some say that at times of intense samsaya, an effective way to get through it is to be in the presence of a guru. Yogis believe gurus can inspire the faith and strength to progress on a spiritual path.
