LESSON SUMMARY

Lesson 5: Being With Our Feelings and What Lies Beneath Practices

In this skills lab with Mandalena you'll experience a group practice designed to help you feel the feelings that lie beneath the surface.  In this lesson we practice directly feeling our emotions and allowing them to flow freely without inhibition, without agenda, without trying to figure them out or analyze them.   We learn a practice to dive deep below the surface of the waters bringing a loving and honoring presence to everything that arises.. 

 

LESSON CONTENT

How feeling our feeling allows us to connect to water’s wisdom qualities

PRACTICE: The Deeper Feelings Beneath Group Skills Lab

  1. Notice, any parts of you that are starting to show up as the more viscous nature of Water is inviting in.  Notice if your doer, or the one that like wants to do it right shows up.  If you can relate to this idea of welcoming them and again just acknowledging who's showing up now.
  2. You can have a curiosity and intrigue about who's showing up without the agenda of ‘If I presence you, then you're going to change’ or ‘Then I'm going to get to the material that matters,” but more like, oh, this is what I noticed now, and it might just be a sensation in our bodies, and it might be a part that has a consciousness or it might be a story. 
  3. Feel it versus trying to figure it out.  Give permission to what’s there just feeling it instead of trying to figure it out because that's what we’re usually trying to do.   ‘Oh, I feel it, how great, now I want to figure it out, analyze it.’ Water's not a figure-outer-er. Water is a sense-based, felt wisdom.   Notice if you are trying to figure out what's under the water and feels like it wants outcome.
  4. In a group, name out loud what’s here and give it permission as each person begins to name something else.   As we submerge into the water together we can begin to feel the interconnected interrelational aspect of the group and welcoming all aspects to the pool that each person names.
  5. Meet it with an ocean of loving presence without any agenda. There's a real honoring of the wisdom that each one holds, even the tightness, even the constriction or fear.   Water moves beyond the wisdom of like "shoulds" and like needing to do it a certain way, water is just with it all.  We may recognize that there wasn't an honoring of what’s being named in our systems as a child and this pacing of water was really just overrun. 
  6. Notice the softening that can occur with the recognition.   Notice what happens in the body as everything named is seen and acknowledged.  There can be a softening that starts to occur as the intelligence reveals itself.  Notice if it feels easy for you to be with each part, with agenda-less presence.  Notice your capacity to meet this part.  Notice if you can stay in that presence.
  7. We are multiple voices in one body. Realize the more we deepen the more the heart comes online.  Keep noticing the field of water to be with anything that arises.  Realize we are one body moving together and notice if in one system something arises, notice it shifting someone in yours like multiple voices of one body.
  8. Honor the wisdom of each part.   Even feeling the contrast water is still here listening, no matter what...still here.  Deep acknowledgement and acceptance of that part . There's nothing wrong.   Water is the unconditionally loving mother that just stays with her child effortlessly and continuously.
