This is all about emotional release. This is where we see the problem and then we see the emotions attached to it. Are we in fear? Are we sad? Are we brokenhearted? Are we about to punch someone in the teeth?
How do we make a plan for release? Not like most people normally would think.
Think about this. If you're mad at your partner and you decide "How am I going to get him to stop doing that thing that drives me crazy?" then will it be a productive plan? Or will it be driven by (or at least impacted by) the negative emotions under it rather than the love to repair?
Whenever we are upset, it's a good idea to retreat and release before making any kind of outward plan. This is a time for a plan to go inward. This is about radical honesty with your emotions. This is about seeing the truth in how we feel and not logical-ing it away. It's about being in the emotion, no matter how unpleasant. It's about truly tapping into it.
This is scary for a lot of people because they are afraid of anger, fear, or grief. They bottle it in and they are either afraid of the explosion or they think it's wrong, but I have helped many people through this process and it's usually built up quite a bit in our own minds. This process is powerful, but it can be moved through quickly even with major events.
Emotions, if truly tapped into, can be released in as little as 10 seconds.
How Do We Do This? In your head.
You can journal, write letters, visualize, create expressive art, or use energy work. The important part is not to limit yourself and to fully express. If you think you shouldn't say or do that, then that is a sign you should. After all, this is in your mind, you are not actively doing this to the person or situation that impacted you. You are simply being truthful about how you feel.
In an Intuitive Healing Session, some people can process up through 5 major emotional blocks in just one session with proper guidance and an open heart. These are made for FAST progression through stage two and even through stage three (more on that tomorrow) for radical transformation. But no matter how you decide to move through your emotions, this is the foundational stage for healing. Be radically honest about how you feel.
How do you feel about being radically honest with your emotions?
This step is all about the brain. It's about looking inward to see what patterns are being created. What beliefs have you been given as a child? Young adult? Are they really what you believe now? How much of what I am doing is based on a belief system I simply accepted?
This can be a time to question our foundation or just a particular concept like boundaries or even religion based on the emotions that you released in step 2. How did I get here?
Perhaps if the emotion we released in step 2 was around anger with our relationships-- why do I always attract partners who treat me poorly?? We may look at WHY this happens. How do my beliefs and actions play a role?
EXAMPLE: Perhaps we see that our unhappiness with our relationships stems from our relationship with our father. Maybe he only paid attention to us when we behaved? What beliefs came into being from that experience in regards to our relationships with a partner? Then once you see the belief as what it is (example: I must be perfect in a relationship to deserve love), you are able to see how you desire to change it.
DESIRED BELIEF: My father only gave me attention when I was good so that made me think that I have to be perfect in a relationship, but the truth is I am not perfect and I deserve love anyway. I am worthy of love.
Perhaps it starts smaller or it's something totally different, but this is a FOUNDATION of a new belief system. You don't have to fully believe it yet-- we will come more into this in Step 4 tomorrow.
This step is all about creating what you want.
What feels right to you? What do you want to create?
