Anything that disturbs our peace is ours to heal.
Anything that disturbs our peace is a place where we leave our body, where we seek to control another, an agenda, an outcome. Where we employ a coping technique, a stress response, where we have stopped listening, where we are judging a situation/person/experience.
When we leave our body we seek our safety outside of ourselves. We outsource our well-being to the fickle nature of those around us.
We are free when we embody our bodies. We are victims when we do not.
Never ask anyone to give to you what you are unwilling to give to yourself. That approval, that validation, that admiration. Nothing. Giving it to ourselves is sustainable. Requiring it from other physical human beings makes us a victim to the vagaries of another’s internal state. It makes us controllable.
Disturbed peace shows us where we are not yet free.
It is a call to greater freedom.
Barf all the hurt feelings, all the stories. Are there any that have more charge than the others? Make note of that.
Simultaneously, feel the feelings inside the body that the stories and barfing elicit.
Alternate back-and-forth barfing and feeling, narrate both. Simply be a journalist of what is happening in the body.
And, the words are the fuel, the energy is the fire. Words fuel the fire, but the fire is the real action.
Turn it around. See where and how you do the exact same thing. To yourself, or to others.
See if you can identify the place within the lineage where are you acquired this coping technique. Either by repeating what was seen or by reacting, as a response to another energy.
“This is not mine to carry.” See that this is not yours to carry.
“When I carry this, I am unable to love the way I am meant to love.” See that when you carry this you are unable to love the way you are meant to love.
