Picture in your mind’s eye when you were a child; a beautiful time in your life. How old were you? What are you wearing?
How did you feel?
What were you doing?
Keep this picture with you when your mind starts to go to the dark place…and bring in the light of the young child.
Ask the child: What do you need?
Listen and allow yourself to feel any emotions that surface. I like to place my hand on my heart and allow my feelings to flow. I have learned to mother myself and “be” with the moments of sadness.
The only way out is to feel within our bodies all the repressed emotions that need to surface.
Allowing, accepting, and feeling the other side of darkness.… is light.
Namaste, Jennifer Miller
