Emotion invitation exercise – Inquiry & expression (36 min)
Use this meditation to investigate which emotions are suppressed and stuck in the body, need attention and want to be felt, released, soothed and integrated.
Every meditation, visualization, somatic exercise or any other healing tool from Beyond Psychology contains healing music, poetry, spoken word, sounds and song created by our founder Myrthe Glasbergen.
At the root of all our mental and physical suffering, lie suppressed and unexpressed emotions. As a child, people are mostly not being taught how to acknowledge, understand, express and regulate their emotions properly and in a healthy way. This results in emotional dysregulation and/or the suppression of emotions entirely. Learning how to become aware of suppressed emotions and how to understand, feel, express and regulate them, can help people to feel in control of their lives again and to become healthy, free and empowered human beings.
I did the emotion invitation exercise today. It was really really special to me. There was a big kind of giant that was inside of me and that was holding me. With his huge hands he held my throat, my back and my womb for years and squeezed it. Then I asked it to come out. And he started to cry. Me too, I felt a lot of tears. We hugged for a long time. Then my body started to swirl. It was like a big vortex, going all different sides. All the places that were stuck before were soft and warm now. Sinds then I feel really relieved and have a big smile on my face. Thank you!
