Understanding that emotions are energy continues to be a revolutionary way of looking at emotions. The strategy for successfully releasing or feeling them is therefore also revolutionary compared to mainstream approaches. It involves moving the energy of emotion at the level of sensation experienced in the body. For many people, looking to their body sensations to transform challenging emotions and increase emotional intelligence is the most important piece of the puzzle that leads to decreasing stress and increasing happiness. This is especially true when you understand that sensory and emotional information is recorded into memory first; thoughts and perceptions, second. This distinction provides clues for increasing emotional intelligence while pointing out the limitations of purely thought-based approaches. The sensations you feel in your body hold the key to unlocking limiting patterns, transforming stress, and generating lasting happiness.
Once you allow yourself to feel your emotions without talking about or justifying why you feel the way you feel, you move to the next level. It’s powerful, dynamic, and enlivening.
In this meditation, you will be guided through the process of sinking your awareness into your emotional sensations. As you go through the practice, moving from sensations of contraction to expansion, you will begin to notice a decrease in feelings of contraction. This may happen quickly or over the course of several minutes. The changes may feel subtle or dramatic, depending on the issue you are dealing with.
