Sometimes we are scared to let ourselves really feel.
We might fear that we’ll be overwhelmed by our emotions or drown in them.
Sometimes we have spent a lifetime surviving, which has meant feelings have had to be shut off and the healing is the path of patiently opening.
Learn to safely connect with your emotions by following your breath and being with feelings as sensations in the body.
It is often that we need guidance and support to help do this. Somatic therapies are best for this.
We can use our grounded embodied connection to hold ourselves safely, no matter what emotional storm we are weather in.
And we can know that all feelings have a life span and will pass.
