Sometimes, I notice fear about the future, lack of confidence, and feeling flattened. (This is after some years of health challenges and having the rug pulled out from under me repeatedly, and I am sure this was in me before this too, although less on the surface.)
So I feel the sensations. See if I can feel the sensations as sensations. Notice the pictures associated with it. Look at the images. Perhaps ask some simple questions. For instance:
While feeling the sensation: Is it true that this sensation means anything about my future? Is it true it’s dread? Is it true it means anything at all?
While looking at an image of the future: Is that image the future? Is it true that the image is my future? Is it true it means something about my future? Is it true it means anything at all?
At times, I may hold sating with what’s here.
You are welcome here. Thank you for protecting me. I love you.
And sometimes, ho’oponopono.
I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you.
When these things come up, there are a few ways to relate to it. I can pretend it’s not here, which works somewhat for a while, but not really since it is here. I can try to push it away, which also doesn’t work very well.
Or I can welcome it. Notice it’s already allowed. Notice it’s here to protect me. See if I can find love for it. Feel the sensations. Notice the sensations as sensations. Notice the images and words associated with these sensations. Perhaps ask some simple questions about the sensations, images, and words.
