FEEL IT

IMG-20170807-00204

Strong emotions can be scary, yet we have them. Often we try to avoid them and distract ourselves to not feel. It can be a powerful and integrative experience to have an emotion moving through your body, ideally in a safely held place and with a trusted person that can be your compassionate witness. You may experience that you ‘come out on the other end’, still alive and possibly ‘more here’ than before.

Feelings are valuable allies on our life’s path, we can learn to be with them – they can actually make us feeling more alive… This poem is an observation of the rising and moving of a feeling through the body. I can recommend practicing it

 

 

observe
it coming

don’t run
away

if you
can

feel it

let it
rise

in your
body

the waves
of emotion

your nervous
system
activated

an inner
tremor

blood
pulsating

your body
might
tremble
too

this is
life
in motion

 

you may
fear
it’s too
much

you may
fear to
drown

stay
with
it

ride the
wave

be the
wave

don’t be
afraid

 

trust
your
body

your
vessel

it is
made
for this

 

we are
wired
to feel

life wants
to move

through
us

and with
every
emotion
felt

an inch
less
contracted

there is
space

 

an opening

for more
of our
wholeness

to come
in

 

this is

LOVE

in
