dreams drifting away…..
life drifting away….
Eenie, meenie, minie, moe,
So many directions in which to go…..
Yeah, it was a different kind of day. Emotions were settling in and I had to get them out. It’s not as bad as it seems, so don’t worry. When one of these moods strike I simply close my eyes and type whatever comes to mind; and then I feel so much better once they’re out into the open—or at the very least typed and saved in a file.
Do you have a process or routine to rid yourself of emotions? And I don’t mean screaming; although that comes recommended by some.
A few years ago while in deep learning and self-discovery, I learned how to tap into my active imagination and log all that I saw, heard, and said after being guided into meditation. The experience hooked me! Now I teach that exercise to those who learn with me. The process is both enlightening and emancipating.
But I digress. …. or am I?
You are your own best friend; you may think, however, you are your own worst enemy because of what you tell yourself over and over and may eventually come to believe. You know what I’m talking about; the little naggings that keep digging at your inner soul.
What if you could silence those negative voices or at least turn down the volume? What would it feel like if you could confront them with confidence?
I thought about sharing the process here, but it can be too intense. If going into the meditation for the first time, it’s best to have someone guide you.
I love this type of meditation and much has been shown to me that I am on the right path in my journey. I had many voices inside and this process, closing my eyes, writing out the commentary, has helped to quiet them.
But I didn’t get to this point until I confronted the questions I had for myself; questions that friends and family would ultimately ask or had already asked.
Strength and confidence abounded. Freedom in all its glory.
“I know why the caged bird sings, ah me, when his wing is bruised and his bosom sore; when he beats his bars and he would be free, it is not a carol of joy or glee, but a prayer that he sends from his heart's deep core.” ~Paul Laurence Dunbar
