Yesterday, the part that shuts down came up strongly a couple of times. It’s the part that holds onto painful beliefs as if it’s a matter of life and death. (Which it is, in a sense, for that identification.) In the moment, I may go for a walk, watch something entertaining on YouTube, or do something else until the storm passes. I may also write down beliefs that come up and do some shaking.
Later, such as this afternoon, I find it helpful to do ho’oponopono on that part of me (in the situation it came up), hold satsang with it, and take these beliefs to inquiry.
