Connecting With Your Self
By now you should have a good idea of what causes you to be emotionally triggered:
There are several ways to transform beliefs and fears, and each method has value. But the fastest way to deal with emotions is to feel them. What we resist, persists.
Here’s the short version of my Energy Accelerator Technique process that you can use on yourself:
- Pick a trigger that you want to heal, for example anger. When you think of the anger, where do you feel it in your body? If you have a hard time connecting with it, think of a situation that would trigger the emotion. Most emotions tend to get stuck along the spine.
- Now that you have found the emotion, let’s quantify how intense the emotion is. This is only to use as a baseline to see if you are making progress. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the extraordinary pain, and 1 being a place of peace, what number would you give your emotion?
- Tap into the emotion. If you find yourself in resistance, be okay with being in resistance. Give yourself love, attention, peace in that one place where you feel the emotion the strongest. Note that the feeling will shift in intensity and possibly location. You job is to keep attention on the emotion where ever it goes. The feeling may even shift in the way it presents to you. And if you get thoughts or memories, pay attention to what comes up.
- Stay with the emotion until you reach a state of peace. When you feel that you are there, double check by going back to the original trigger. Does it cause you emotion when you think about it, or peace? If you still feel peace, then the emotion has been resolved. If not, continue to work on it. Rinse and repeat.
For homework, every time you are triggered by a thought, words or action, use this technique to clear the emotion. Make sure to get down to the original belief or fear so that you can clear the root, not just the symptom.
Should you not have the opportunity to clear the emotion, either write it down and process it later, or start the process with the intent that you will be unconsciously process the emotion, with the occasion check it to process it consciously.
