Dealing with feeling effectively – Monday edition

Feelings arise as we go along – many of them uncomfortable.  For some reason the art of dealing with feeling was never passed onto us as children, so we never really know what to do with them. The usual thing is to mask, deny, avoid, distract ourselves from or change them into something else.

The Taoist way is to breathe into and surrender to the feeling till it evaporates of itself, not being afraid to feel it, however uncomfortable, knowing it only to be momentary.

The other way merely keeps the feeling buried within, festering away till it eventually wears you away.

To instigate this fresh, novel approach, repeat six times or more if you like, with fullness of self brought to bear on speaking/thinking the words:

“I am easy with any feeling that may arise within, no matter how strong or fearful – I just relax my body, keep breathing and trust all my needs are met. I’ve now overcome any compulsion to run away and hide from what I feel.”

I wish you a day of feeling nothing but joy.

Love, D

    All these affirmations Barefoot posts are wonderful and do seem to have that extra power without exception.

    I wonder if there is a way of downloading “the mother load” of all the affirmations in one go from all the wisdom drops ?

    Or even being able to download all the wisdom drops in one go ?

    But what would be an amazing treat would be if Barefoot recorded the mother load of affirmation – as lets face it when he speaks especially accompanied by a beat the power of the words tend to really resonate to the core.

    Well they do to this Taoist in Training 🙂
