Grounding Insanity

Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.
-Theodore Roosevelt
 
In my last article entitled, Emotional Insanity, I wrote about “The Pain Body” as described by Eckhart Tolle in his book called A New Earth. Tolle describes how the pain body is its own body of emotion that lives in each of us holding memories of past pains and hurts, this body of emotion hides and waits for something to trigger it…once unleashed, all past negative emotions like rage and anger resurface, destroying everything in its path, until it goes into hibernation once again and waits for its next meal.
 
In my last article I thought that just recognizing the voice of my pain body, then trying to ignore it by changing my thoughts would be enough. Boy was I wrong…the pain body will NOT be ignored! Instead it exploded with a vengeance, which then led to a fury of more emotionally insane behaviors to erupt from within me.
 
So I thought, okay, let me try another approach, and I looked at these occurrences as wonderful “opportunities” to really “get to know” my pain body. The only way to tame this beast was for me to become intimate with it, by allowing it to consume my whole being by fully feeling the anger, rage, and excruciating pain it brings.

During a heated argument with my husband, my blood pressure began to rise, my heart literally began beating in my throat and my whole body was shaking. Anger consumed every cell in my body. Feeling destructively explosive, I ran to seek sanctuary in my shower, a time-out, before this energy was expressed on anyone.
 
I took some deep breaths and spent a few minutes focused solely on the soothing sound of the water. I then focused on grounding myself by imagining tree roots growing out of the bottom of my feet all the way down to the center of the earth. I imagined the tense negative emotions in my body flowing out of me and into the tree roots and then traveling down to the center of the earth for recycling. As the tension began to subside and my pain body simmered down, ease and calm came over me. I did it, I went through it, I don’t have to hold on to it, I don’t have to make it my story, it was just a moment and now I can get on with my day.
 
The more you practice this, the more you can be your own master of energy, and of your life. You can go through it, then get over it and spend more moments on pleasant feelings and emotions like LOVE.
 
Stay grounded, stay in your body, it helps!

fake watches on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 12:28 AM
replica rolex :This watch is super lightweight and sleek. I wear it every day. It seems to be marketed as a fashion/utility watch and I would say that is about right. It is not as bullet-proof as say, a G-Shock, but it is fairly durable and also looks cooler IMO. The temp guage usually reads 10 Degrees higher than usual since it is on your wrist, other than that it is fairly accurate. I still have no clue what the little shell thingy in the bottom left quadrant means. It changes with each second and looks neat... I guess it is just decoration??? thomas sabo :I bought this watch as a gift for my bf who surfs and do all kind of water sports. It is very resistant and it also looks good with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Will definitely recommend this. rolex yachtmaster :This is a great watch. It's comfortable and works great. The band is flexible but doesn't feel flimsy. I've had the watch for about a month now and I don't have any complaints yet.
