When you talk to people and give them credit for who they really are, and talk to who they really are, it’s amazing what starts to come out of them.
I notice that for myself. There is a big difference when I talk with someone who sees what I am and recognize stories as not true, and when I talk with someone who believe stories about themselves, me and the world. Most recently, I notice the difference between sessions with a therapist (also a TRE practitioner, it’s part of the certification process), and when I do The Work.
I also notice some stories here:
It’s better to not see a story as true.
B. takes her stories about me as true. (The therapist/TRE practitioner.)
B. shouldn’t take her stories about me as true.
B. is doing it wrong (when she goes into stories and take them as true).
B. doesn’t get it.
B. only solidifies what’s already too solid. / B. tightens the knot instead of inviting it to untie.
B. shouldn’t teach/preach.
B. should invite me to find my own answers/truth.
B. should stay in her own business.
B. should listen to/be more like D. B. (She shouldn’t think she knows what’s going on. She should explore beliefs through the body rather than talking. She should help me explore what I do in my body to believe a story.)
B. is condescending. / B. treats me as a child.
