It seems everything we did today worked for me, and finding that sensation of love is like a welcome feeling of release. However, what I'm also finding is that when I think of someone I know I love, what can sneak in are some surrounding issues of sadness (if the person is gone for example, or unwell, or in the case of my wonderful doggie, quite elderly.. and it feels like a break in the flow of the process. Any input?
I invite you to check out these great posts on our private Discussion Forum:
I'm finding myself using the YES Breath to realign inward in some surprising places... not the usual 'meditative places'. I'll do it when I need it most -- in the car or even in conversation! I'll do it subtly and it really helps. and the other person doesn't even notice.
On this final call, we'll be exploring the vital tools for integrating what we've been learning about loving ourselves, and important themes brought up in M.H's recent post about her Roller Coaster Ride. I invite you to check out her discussion thread prior to the call by clicking here.
