17 2. Why do we find it so difficult to experience emotions like sadness, loss, helplessness emptiness, aloneness, worthlessness, despair? 3. When was the last time you got angry? Share this experience with the person on your right. 4. What was the painful emotion underneath the anger, the more vulnerable feeling the anger was protecting you from experiencing? Questions 1. What happens when you feel upset or any kind of painful emotion? How do you handle it? 5.If I allowed myself to feel the more vulnerable feeling of …., I frightened that…? and then…?

18 Healing Painful Emotions 1. Give up anger, blame or any other coping choice that stops you from responsibly feeling the pain. 2. Find and feel this pain somewhere in your body. You can not heal what you will not physically feel. 3. On every out breath, let go, give in and sink as deeply as you can into the physical experience of the emotion. Whatever pain we resist, persists, strengthens and becomes unbearable. Giving into to tears and crying can be extremely helpful here. 4. As you give into and experience this emotional pain in your body simply say,Spirit,help me heal this pain and fear. When you can ask with heart- felt surrender, you will receive your healing, release, and access to the Peace Of God beneath.

19 Feeling Emotions A Simple Awareness Exercise 1. Close your eyes and think of a situation as close to the present as you can remember where you felt some painful emotion like sadness, loss, aloneness, emptiness, despair etc. 2. Try to visualize this situation in your mind to the point where you begin to feel the emotion once again now. Locate it somewhere in your body. 3. Your first reaction will be to to tighten up, and stop breathing. Instead, try letting go into the physical experience with every out breath. 4. See how long you can give attention to this experience and what happens to the pain.
