You can’t trust your intuition when your pain and emotions are triggered.
So what can you do?
First, forget about understanding ‘why’ you are having certain emotions, that can come later as an added bonus.
The way to really heal is to let the energy, emotions and feelings fully arise and flow in the moment, without avoidance, so we can clear and transform the active energy that is presenting as an emotion.
Yes, once it’s triggered you need to honour it, not suppress it or bypass it. It’s there, it’s active, it wants your loving attention.
However, this isn’t about wallowing as a victim. This is self-love and energy mastery.
Feeling, allowing and witnessing what is arising within you, without assigning judgement, that is the goal, rather than trying to understand at the mental level.
I know understanding the feelings makes us feel better but that is only a quick fix for the ego, rather than a true shift.
SO. What do you do when the feels are full on?
Feel, notice how you feel inside your body, where are the emotions happening in your body? Breathe there. Stroke yourself there. Love yourself there.
Dance, rage, walk, cry, massage, run, shout, bathe.
Then meditate and journal to seek understanding if you still need it.
THEN take time to speak affirmations, mantras and self-soothing words out loud that REPLACE the emotions and energy that just shifted.
I AM ENOUGH
I AM SAFE
I AM SUPPORTED
I AM EMPOWERED
I LOVE & ACCEPT MYSELF
Let me know how it goes.
