I often have people say to me something like this…
I don’t know if I can open up to what I’m feeling because I’m afraid that if I start, it might not ever stop.
In response I say… your being doesn’t have endless reserves to hold all the things that you’re feeling.
Eventually, one way or another that container will start to leak.
The fear you’re experiencing about feeling your feelings is often much worse than actually feeling them ever will be!
Sometimes when it’s like this, we just have to start slowly.
Recognise and sit with the fear
Lie on the ground and just breathe if you must.
And then, we can address the fears before we do anything else. Ask the body what it needs to feel safe to start exploring.
Then we can go from there… at your own pace.
We can work with all the stories your fear wants to give as excuses for why we can’t unpack the stories your body is holding.
Which makes it easier, eventually, to access the emotional container and allow it to start flowing and resolving.
All in your own time, lovely people.
