I find it very helpful to shake (neurogenic tremors, TRE) while keeping a particular stressful situation in mind. It doesn’t matter whether it’s from the past, future or present, or from a dream or images of a past life, or something out there in the world in the lives of others. It can also, as I have explored recently, be a situation where I procrastinate.
As with so many approaches, TRE seems to go very well with a number of other approaches.
Through neurogenic tremors, tension and stress created by certain beliefs is released. And when there is less tension and stress around a specific situation, there is also less of an impulse to recoil from the emotions and thoughts associated with it. It’s easier to open to the emotions, let them have their life, allow them to move through and discharge. It’s easier to write a Judge Your Neighbor worksheet from the situation and do inquire on it. It’s easier to have a more stable attention while doing this. And how I relate to the situation – or similar situations – in my life changes as well. I am a bit more relaxed, a bit more kind to myself and others, a bit more home in myself.

It seems to release tension and stress around that situation, or more accurately, the tension and stress created by the beliefs triggered by that situation.
As with so many approaches, this one too seems to go well with other ones. There is a mutual support.
Through releasing this tension, it’s easier to open to the emotions, to allow them their life, to notice them move through and reveal a new layer of emotion, until there is a release here too. And it’s also easier to write a Judge Your Neighbor worksheet and take it to inquiry.
As more of the tension and stress associated with a situation is released, the impulse to recoil from the emotions triggered by it is lessened, as is the impulse to recoil from the images and thoughts associated with it, or fueling these images and thoughts. There is more availability to open to the emotions and inquire into the thoughts.
This makes it easier to open to the emotions associated with the situation, to let them have their life, allow them to move through. Perhaps revealing new layers of emotions, etc.
It also makes it easier to inquire into beliefs about the situation.
