Feel All of Your Feelings
Updated: Feb 1
Feel all of your feelings.
You don't even need to know why you're feeling them.
You just need to be a safe presence for them.
And to feel them completely, totally and utterly.
This means not judging your feelings.
Or yourself for feeling them.
This means deciding it's okay for them to be there.
And coming out of resistance to them completely so you can...
Be with them.
Love the you that felt these feelings even if you can't remember where they came from or why they're here.
And just breathe.
Then, layer upon layer, you'll watch your feelings begin to melt.
Like ice melting under a hot sun.
Until they're completely dissolved and that dark, stuck, stagnant energy is free.
And you are free.
And then you'll feel lighter.
And more you than ever.
Just give it time.
And be patient.
The moment you acknowledge your pain it ceases to be pain and instead becomes intensity.
So allow yourself to feel this intensity for as long and as often the feeling requires to be truly seen and acknowledged.
Do this often and over and over again.
Here are two statements that have helped me accept what I feel in the moment. Say them out loud or in your mind. I recommend repeating each statement at least 3 times while putting your hands over your heart:
1. Even though I feel __________, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
2. I feel __________ and I love that.
Even though I feel like a failure, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I feel like a failure and I love that.
Even though I feel anxious, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I feel anxious and I love that.
Even though I feel like I made a fool out of myself, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I feel like I made a fool out of myself and I love that.
Even though I feel more scared than I've ever been, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. I feel more scared than I've ever been and I love that.
Even though I feel like it's all my fault, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
I feel like it's all my fault and I love that.
At first it might feel strange saying these statements. You might even feel like you're lying or inviting in more of what you don't want, but that's not at all what you're doing.
Repeating these statements will take you out of resistance to your pain which is ultimately what allows it to go (when it's ready).
Think of your pain as an entity or a person that just wants to be heard or acknowledged so it can move on.
If you meet them with love and compassion, hear them deeply and completely by being fully present while having no interest in judging or making them wrong, then true healing can take place.
Try this out and let me know how it goes down in the comments.
Love you all as always! :)
