An Opportunity to upgrade our patterns
Ever wondered why when its full moon you seem to go through a stage where things get brought to the surface. Your buttons are pushed more easily, you may seem more grumpy than usual, things that don't usually irritate you seem to drive you crazy and you don't sleep as well as you usually do. Scientifically there is no conclusive evidence about the relationship between the moon and heightened emotions but in my experience, when its full moon I seem to have more clients that contact me asking for assistance. A small explanation could be that because our bodies are made up of 60% water and our thoughts program our emotions, which are held in our bodies, just like the tides our bodies are influenced by the pull of the moon. Issues that we can usually put to the back of our minds can sometimes be stronger at full moon and whether this is true or not, it does give us a great opportunity to work though them and upgrade our patterns. Wouldn't it be nice is one of those buttons wasn't there anymore.
So how do you disable a button?
Its much easier to notice what your button is when you are feeling stronger emotion around it, so when you have a strong emotion about it, the first step is being aware, paying attention and noticing it.
Once you can pin point what exactly it is then you can start to work with it. A powerful exercise, is when the button is pushed, identify the emotion you feel and bring it to the fore front. Don't try to push it away, let it be with you, give it your attention and acknowledge it.
Feel it, How does it make you feel? where in your body is it sitting? what shape is it? does it have a colour or a texture? does it have a smell or a taste associated with it or one that comes to mind? Now that you have a solid image of it,
Imagine gently taking it out of your body and disposing of it, in whichever way feels comfortable to you. Think outside the rational box with this and get creative with your imagination. Usually you will find a idea comes clearly to mind, go with it.
Once the "thing" is gone, notice how having it gone feels... put some words to what you now feel.
Allow that feeling to move clearly into your mind and then in the place of where that "thing" was put that new feeling in and seal it with a beautiful light, whichever colour of light you would like to use that feels positive and right.
If you have a flashback of the emotion, just repeat those words to yourself and replace it with that feeling you felt when it left. In no time you will notice that that initial issue will disappear.
1. Get clear on what the emotion is that you are feeling.
2. Close your eyes and feel it in your body, where does it sit?
3. Acknowledge it.
4. Give it a shape, colour, texture, smell and shape.
5. Release it.
6. Notice how it feels not to have it with you, how do you feel?
7. Fill the empty space with the new updated emotion.
8. If you have a flashback, simply replace it with the new emotion.
