What? You Suggest I Do What?
Invite in that stuck feeling.
You are suggesting I invite in this stuck feeling. Really?
Yes, invite it in. You’re wanting something in your life. You’re wanting to do something. It’s meaningful to you. And, yet, you don’t do it. Something is awry. Something feels stuck. Something is not wanting to do what you are wanting. Go ahead, invite it in and sense it freshly in your body right now.
That’s right. Don’t shy away from it or push it away. That stuck feeling is here for some good reason. You can sense something there in your body. Maybe in your throat, or chest, or stomach/belly. Something is there in that middle space of your inner body. It is feeling stuck and needs to share with you. Go ahead. It’s there now. Say hello. Keep it company like you would a good friend.
All it is needing is a good listener, like you when you are in presence. It’s needing the company of your open, flowing, spacious and compassionate self. That state of being that welcomes whatever comes.
You mean welcomes even that in me that feels horrible, stuck and painful? Do you really mean even that?
Yes, even that. Your Self-in-Presence welcomes all that comes, says hello, and sits down with each one, listening deeply and acknowledging with deep empathy.
Ah, you say you’ve been listening.
And now what? What do I do now?
You might sense how it is feeling from its point of view. What it is not wanting for you. What’s it’s not wanting to happen to you and not wanting to you to feel.
OK, it’s letting me know how it is for it. It’s letting me know what it is not wanting for me.
Great. That’s right you’re listening deeply to it.
And, now what?
If it feels right, let it know that you can really sense how it is for it. You really get what it’s not wanting for you.
Ah, it’s changing now. It’s relaxing and there’s a breath. It is opening and flowing.
You might let that feeling of opening and flowing be there as fully as it wants.
Yes, it wants to be here. I’m enjoying it, actually.
That’s good. Steep in that feeling.
Ah, there is something more. It’s a sense of rightness. A sense of the next right step to take. Yes, it is here, the next right step for me.
Wonderful. You might gather up that next right step and take it with you into your life. And, perhaps also thank your body for sharing.
Your awareness expanding now to the world around you. And, off you go. Stuck no more.
