Did you know that your feelings can linger long after a-stressful
event is resolved? Emotion spontaneously originates in your body and goes to your brain to be understood through-words. Thus, the thinking mind can solve a problem rationally, yet the body may remain frozen in the terror of an previous time.
Last week, I worked with a very successful speaker from Europe. He felt a stressful tightness right in the middle of his chest that seemed always present even when he was doing extremely well.
When we invited his imagination to identify the root of the stress, he saw his 18 year-old self who was very worried about who he “would become.” Would he marry well and have children? Would he make enough money? Would he have a good life? As he looked out of his youthful eyes, he felt the pain of not knowing and worried about his ability to become someone. When I directed this 18 y.o. self to look over at the 45 year-old… He exploded with happiness… his answers were right in view… he had excelled in each area of his youthful concern! With extreme joy, he squealed, “Holy Crap! I’ve done it!” After appreciating his older accomplished self, he said, “I can spend more time relaxing, playing with my kids and enjoying the saxophone. It feels so good to know this…”
Instantly, the tension in his chest was gone!

Closing your eyes let your attention settle down into your belly as you rest here breathe in through your bellybutton and out through the small of your back. As you take another deeper breath you relax even more
Sensing in your body, you’ll notice an area that lights up red giving your full attention to this red area, you’ll sense the details of it Is it flat or 3 dimensional? Is the surface rough or smooth? Does it have a specific shape or is it amorphous? Noticing other details arising, you invite them to register in your mind as clues.
Sensing the aspect of this red energy that’s calling your attention most, move your awareness fully into it and imagine being it! Take a minute
As you are immersed in this energy, an image, memory or number will pop into your mind of a time that’s stuck in an outdated mode. Receiving whatever comes first allow it as much as you can even if it doesn’t make sense to you
As you move into this image and look out of these stuck eyes you notice whats happening around you and how you are feeling take a minute
Express for this time and place What it feels like in this body in at this time is
What I’m most concerned about is
Find the energy of this feeling in your body of that previous time
Move into it as you rest in it, easily look over and you see an image of your current day self
You notice how you look now and the successes you have experienced take a moment
Looking from this outdated time, you receive a stream of colored energy from your current self
Noticing the color and quality of this energy and where it enters your body, you fully receive it as the color touches each cell in your body, the outdated emotional time is instantly and effectively updated into the new image! The new reality penetrates the old memories and they become present as one updated system flowing in, around and through every cell of your body from the top of your head and out to the tips of your fingers and toes from the center of your spine and out into every pore of your skin as old concerns are dissolved by the truth of who you are now genuine and successfully stepping into ever greater awareness of your strengths and purpose You are one with yourself and all the greatness of life itself. You are were you are suppose to be and moving forward even though you don’t know whats coming next It doesn’t matter because you are prepared at the deepest levels of your body to be you with your child-like joy and curiosity and so it is!
