Feeling through the pain

Feeling Through The Pain:
By: Diane Lang

 – There are times that we need to stay in our emotions, even if those emotions are sadness, anger, hurt and/or fear.
– You need to stay there until feel that you can’t take it anymore.
– If we zip through the feelings and the pain, they will come back without the lesson needed.
 -We can’t heal until we feel, really feel it.
 -Spending days in your emotions can really help you to understand what you are feeling, why you are feeling it and healing through it.
 -When I spend a few days (or whatever it takes) in my emotions, a time comes when I have had enough and don’t want to feel that way anymore. It’s a turning point of growth.
-This shift allows me to go from feeling to taking action.
-It allows me to answer, “Why am I here again?”
-“What didn’t I deal with?” “What didn’t I feel?”
-“What changes didn’t I make and need to this time?”
-If it’s a pattern then I can figure out, what changes do I need to make to break it?
-I can’t answer any of these questions or shift my thought process until I have spent the time needed in the pain.

    Where is the balance in letting yourself feel and getting stuck, consumed, depressed?
    I struggle with expressing my emotions,have had so many mixed messages …I dont know what to feel, what to do with them.

    • If you don’t feel the emotions a situation, person causes than your stuck. You will be stuck in the pain, hurt, anger, etc.
      YOu need to work through it and get to the other side.
      Remember, you need to feel to heal.
      Is it painful? Absolutely but it does get better.
      What is down must go back up.

      • Also remember, every experience whether painful or not is a learning experience. Use your pain to find out what the lesson is. Why you repeat patterns that cause pain. What is the belief behind it?
