every mental event there is a physical event, and emotion is nothing
but a thought attached to a sensation. When you shift your attention
from thoughts to sensations, you dissipate the strength of the emotion,
because thought and sensation are no longer chained together. You can
contribute to your attitude of not minding by just allowing your awareness
to shift spontaneously to the sensations in your body--and then spontaneously
to the thoughts and ideas that accompany those sensations. ~Deepak

afraid to feel the feeling and repress or act out the emotion
it haunts us by running our lives on an unconscious level until
we are ready to sit with it. It’s really very simple,
all we have to do is feel the feeling and avoid attaching to
it or rejecting it. We simply allow the feelings to move and
flow through the body, which then passes or dissolves.

the onrush of emotion because they serve as doorways into
of our psyche that give us insight into our wounds and help
us to revitalize our spirit. When we have taken the necessary
time and detailed attention to restore our selves in stillness,
the recesses of the feminine, we can then begin to draw
our own strength.

blocks for us in this lifetime in the same area hold important
messages. Colors and geometric patterns, images of deity and

will be plenty of time later to recall transitional experiences.

we remain grounded at all times. Use the grounding

subtly in a sigh, tone of voice, or change of breathing pattern.
Breathing reflects every disturbance in our emotions and physical
effort such as our holding patterns or muscular restrictions.
Holding patterns may be released as twitches and jerks or spontaneous
movement as a shudder or convulsion. Release also increases
blood circulation and digestion. When the motor basis within
established patterns or habit is shifted, it breaks up the cohesion
with our feelings, thoughts and sensations that allow us to
create new and healthy patterns. In the process sometimes we
go through a physical healing crisis as we release negativity
from our bodies and come down with flu like symptoms. We may
suddenly have aches and pains or become a hypochondriac. Healing
is a time to rest and be quiet. Drink plenty of spring water.
Feeling ~ The conscious and unconscious
emotions that color our lives that include a range of feelings
from inferiority, self-respect and super sensitivity to the
familiar feelings of joy, anger and grief. Sometimes the depths
of pain are deeper in the case of unexpressed rage. There can
be erratic mood shifts and increased sexual energy to total
loss of sexual desire.
• Emotional release. Cry,
cry and cry some more. The multitudinous layers of compressed
emotions seek to move toward release in streams of tears that
move us into awareness. The unfolding process occurs through
waves and must not be forced as prematurity can produce harm.
Emotions rise to surface when we can sufficiently handle them.
Once there is allowance of emotional release it is better to
set up an atmosphere that will allow release to happen in its
own way. Honor and respect your self with patience!

or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~
Thought ~ Thinking includes all functions
of the intellect. Memory, the oppositions of good-bad, right-wrong,
right-left; understanding, classification of things, recognizing
rules, imagining, knowing what is sensed and felt and so on,
comprise the capacity of thought.
• Mental Releaseoccurs
when thoughts are unrestrained. When the mind is free to move
beyond social barriers of accepted laws of behavior, religion,
ethnic affiliation, morality, sex, economics, art, politics
and science we are breaking through tremendous restrictions
or illusion. The mind is naked. It is not wrapped around any
particular paradigm, preconception or affiliation and is free
to float. The previously held structures come as a flurry of
mental images that regurgitates onto the mind screen with no
impact as memories or information. Some memories are fragments
of ecstatic events, trauma or childhood experiences or unintegrated
past-life personalities where the soul and personality remained
separate to be integrated in this life.
Since our thoughts are linked with our quality of movement,
we often feel the solar plexus release stagnant energy (third
chakra) that in turn shifts the mental aura around the head.
In this case the head may feel lighter. When we create psychological
resistance confusion occurs.
Sensation ~ Includes the five senses
of sound, smell, touch, taste, and sight. Sensation also includes
the kinesthetic sense, that of pain, orientation in space, the
passage of time and rhythm.
• Awareness is
produced by an increasing sensitivity. With increasing sensitivity
the brain registers insights of great value, as it is more a
coming into consciousness than of something held within seeking
release. Sometimes the brain registers split second blips of
information or guidance from intradimensional realms. The non-physical
realms communicate via symbols, synchronicity, color and sound,
archetypal images, words, memories and intuitive teachings in waking and
dream states. These mental abstractions of increased sensitivity
stimulate the pineal gland region into activity, which
leaves a definite imprint upon our psyche.
Forgiveness ~ Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone
free and realizing you were the prisoner.
~ Max Lucado
• Breath is liberated after releasing
long held suppressed feelings. Symptoms of release creates new
patterns of breathing deeply, with ease and awareness.
