There is a nice mutuality between question 3 in The Work and TRE.
Through question 3 – What happens, how do you react, when you have that belief? – I get to explore just that, including what happens in my body. Where do I notice it? Does my body tense up in certain areas? What happens to my breath? Does my body go a bit numb somewhere? Weak? And so on.
Through TRE, I get to explore what my body does in order to believe a story. Where does it tense up? Go numb? Feel weak? What else is required of my body in order to believe a story?
And through inquiry, I find a clarity where beliefs cannot find a foothold anymore. And through TRE, the tension around a belief – both as a consequence of and fueling the belief – is softened and released.
