Loop Posted February 17 Share Posted February 17 (edited) I hope this post doesn’t get brushed by, let it sink into the Heart. The wisdom of the body is what will bring you to land in the Ground of Being. Bath yourself in the Springs constantly, don’t get attached to intellectualizations/ concepts/ thoughts/ insights. Be the Light in the Night. Make the Unconscious Conscious. Repression is unconscious. Don’t let yourself believe you aren’t repressing, you don’t know if you are repressing, it is unconscious. I’m not saying to believe you are either. Be with the Not-Knowingness. Believe in Feeling, in the Guidance. Feel into the Body. Any and all insights can become a form of repression, it doesn’t matter how awesome it is. Thought-attachment runs deep. Don’t get attached to any way of looking at things. Suffering comes from the attachment to any impermanent phenomena. Non-Dual insights can become an attachment. “There is no one to repress” “There is no repression” “There isn’t a thing” “There is no self” Well, it is unconscious. So insights like these, can become a repression to the deeper landing as yourself as Awareness/ Nothing. I’m not suggesting there is anything wrong with Non-Dual insight, but it isn’t the Ground. Letting go constantly, don’t let anything stick, allow it all to be as it is, and everything lets go of You. The body doesn’t care what is true or false, repression doesn’t care what is true or false, the lost inner child doesn’t care what is true or false. Embrace your humanness, so you land into the ground of the Devine. This can be the most terrifying thing ever &/ or the most joyful thing ever. Healing is embracing self, being who you are. —————— Repression Integration Technique/ Process: Start with 5-20 minutes of mindfulness labeling, image, word, feeling. keep it simple just those three, or even just image & word. Drop some thoughts into Awareness, & watch for ripples. “I am not ______” “I am not angry” “I am not sad” “I am not afraid” “I am not guilty” “I am not ashamed” “I am not unworthy” “I am not powerless” Pick one of these & sit with it for a bit. Then drop: “I can express ______ (The emotion currently focused on) to ______ (Parents, Friends, Anyone, pick a person)” Or “What do I get out of holding back/ not expressing ______?” Watch for bodily reactions, shifts, sighs, any reaction. That is the repression, thoughts stuck to the body. Ask the contractions to speak or show you what they want to show you. 👁️ Don’t use language such as “Sadness/ anger/ fear/ unworthiness is arising” this can dissociate you, rather than truly land you as Awareness. It doesn’t matter if it is true or not, it is about Feeling & Healing. Repression can easily hide behind Non-Dual language. The inner child believes it is the fear, it is the anger, it is the unworthiness, it is the sadness. So allow them that space. If you have time sit with each emotion for a bit, going through the process with each. Parent your Unborn Child with a gaze of love, integrate & embody Awareness. Non-Dual language is just piss in the wind to the real energetic shifts to Being. Intellectualizing spirituality is/ can be the bypass to the True Healing. Repression can arise as dis-ease, illnesses, & generally chronic pain. You can convince yourself that something is physical when it is really emotional. Still work on the body, eat well, exercise, but also ask yourself questions like “What is this feeling trying to communicate to me?” ”What would it say if it had a voice?” ”What images are attached to this contraction/ pain?” ————— Nervous System Integration Techniques: Use these to feel deeper into the contraction/ repression. Tapping or brushing with your hands, Anywhere you feel like, on the contractions is a good way to bring awareness to them. Breathing, longer exhales & short inhales I find can be really effective. Gratitude Mediations, just giving thanks & appreciation to everything for no reason at all. Putting your hands in prayer 🙏🏼. Feeling the space around the emotion/ contraction. The Master Key (The Vagus Nerve): Keeping the face facing forward the whole exercise. Put both hands on the back of your head Look to the right with just the eyes as if you are trying to look into the back of your head. Hold for 30-60 seconds, or until a release. Then back to looking forward. The same with the left. Then back to forward and relax. Start with the neck straight, but this can also be done with the neck in different positions. ——— Any kind of physical activity helps reintegrate the nervous system, just make sure you are balancing it with skillful mindfulness practice & shadow/ inner child work. Intellectual understanding of Non-Duality isn’t useful at all for Healing, energetic shifts, & actual landing as Nothing/ Awareness/ Love are what is really sought after. Any technique can become an unconscious repression as well, so use them skillfully, to feel deeper, not to avoid. Only use them when you need to. The closer you get to the repression mechanism the narrower & narrower awareness will feel. This is ok, allow it to be, when it gets overwhelming don’t get thrown off, use the nervous system techniques. As you get more skillful at this, intuition will begin to understand what techniques to use when. Trust Feeling. Trust Yourself. No ‘Absolute Truth’ here, just the True Healing, Impermanence. Nothingness cannot know Nothingness, there wasn’t ever a self there in the first place. You don’t need to have flawless truthful language, we can just express, feel, & heal. It is ok to be you. 💚 Have space/time where you rest & enjoy life, as well as time for digging deep into the Unconscious. —————— If anyone wants to share their experience, add anything to this thread, or have any questions that would be greatly appreciated.
