Releasing Control, Gaining Power Most of us hated our vulnerability when we were young. We didn’t want to cry in front of others. We didn’t want anyone making fun of us for being “too sensitive.” We wanted to be tough and impervious and cool. We acted cool. We didn’t let on that our hearts were hurting. We may have even developed a line of repartee designed to keep others away. We needed to be in control. By midlife we’ve admitted over and over and over again that clearly we are not in control. Now we can acknowledge our vulnerability. What we have pushed away from our awareness for years we now welcome back. Being whole is more important than impressing Joe or Julie.

Resistance and Allowing Clearly, healing is not what you are about every minute of every day. But checking in with your essential core daily, anchors you. It also teaches humility. It allows us to release our fascination with external diversions and experience the eternal peace at our core. Of course, we have built up layer upon layer of defenses which hide our peaceful core from us. We build our defenses and distort our experience of our peaceful core when we don’t feel our feelings in the moment. We all do this and we don’t know we are doing it. It’s too vulnerable and too scary and too uncomfortable to feel everything. Besides it’s not attractive or acceptable in sophisticated company. We layer our defenses against feeling our feelings for years and decades so that when we do decide to sit and practice stillness we encounter unhealed wounds and sadness and rage and fear that have been stuffed and denied and forgotten. But whatever we’ve not let ourselves feel, stays with us and hides our essential core. Therefore we can’t experience the peace which still lives in us. Experiencing this peace heals us. Every step along the way of experiencing our old hurts leads us closer to healing. So, when we sit and allow, we feel the latest layer of buried feelings. We want to experience peace but we encounter gunk we haven’t wanted to feel which hasn’t evaporated (as we had hoped). Healing involves allowing ourselves to move through these layers. As long as it takes, we show up, we practice presence and we allow healing. Just by practicing presence, we allow healing. And healing emotionally allows healing physically. Will you sit, practice stillness, and feel whatever arises?
