I first mentioned this book in July. It’s definitely a winner for me. Here is the mechanism itself explained.
It’s about being aware of a feeling, letting it come up, staying with it and letting it run its course. Without wanting to make it different or doing anything about it.
Let the feeling be there and focus on letting out the energy behind it.
Allow having the feeling without resisting it, venting it, fearing it.
It’s just a feeling. Be with the feeling. Don’t try to modify it.
Let go of wanting to resist the feeling. It may shift to another feeling but the concept is those feelings should become lighter.
The feeling will disappear and the energy behind it dissipates.
When letting go, ignore all the thoughts and focus on the feeling itself.
The feeling could well return and big troubling feelings surely will but if you continuously let them go the feeling will become lighter and the idea is eventually it will be gone.
And that’s it. It’s crazy simple.
A lot of this has to do with your own ego so it can take time. You may even have to let go of the fear of attempting the process itself.
