Home' LOTL : Sep 11 Contents Being female and meaningfully expressing our
sexuality is a challenge that will readily expose us
to our hang ups and insecurities . In managing the
impact of situations in which we are misunder-
stood or ‘not seen’ by others, healing our own un-
resolved life issues is where the real work begins.
Being heart centred , women tend to feel
thing s more intensely making them prone to
drama and emotional crisis. Even if more stoic
by nature, the answer is not to become more
skilled at holding it all in. Rather, it is learning
to readily integ rate the realm of our feeling that
builds inner confidence and emotional resilience
in the face of life’s most difficult events.
In building inner balance and confidence the
habit of moving away from our present moment
experiencing into secondar y thoughts and
feeling s, nee ds to be addressed. The le vel of our
ability, to be clear seeing and co ordinated in our
responses in life, is determined by the deg ree to
which we can use our awareness to, ‘be with’
and attend to, our felt experiencing .
This is unlike our usual approach, which is to
either dismiss or make a case for what we are feel-
ing. This different way of being with our feelings
and ourselves cannot be grasped, nor the benefits
gained, through our usual style of cognitive think-
ing. What is required is a deeper and more direct
connection of our mind to the body.
Therapeutic practices such as Breath work,
Focusing and Emotional Free dom Technique
(EFT) are emotionally integ rative methods that
recog nise the important roles of both mind and
body in emotional healing and self recover y.
Body based therapies are a fun fast and effec-
tive way of working on our life issues and grow-
ing our self awareness and capacity for present
moment experiencing . Body based therapies
provide a safe and rapid chang e process allow-
ing us to readily access deep er experience and
knowing about our stuck life issues. The result is
improved self awareness and permanent healing .
