Somatic Awareness Exercise
Try an experiment & take something that has been frustrating & triggering you. Close your eyes & bring up the feeling & then see if you can sense how your body is telling you that you are upset. Notice subtle signs of tension, contraction, pain, etc.
Now try squeezing your hands & feet tightly for a few seconds & then release them all at once. Notice what you sense in your body & see if it is changing.
There may be subtle signs of discharge like tingling, twitching, tears, yawning, gurgling stomach, etc. that show the energy is moving. Follow this with your curious attention, without judgement or even trying to "fix" anything & see what happens. You may find that what was upsetting before is not as strong.
Repeat this exercise until you feel a marked reduction in your reaction to the issue.
As with all meditations & exercises remember that you are ALWAYS your own best authority on what is right for you & stop if you feel you need assistance in accessing this stored emotion.
