Too Much Emotional Intensity?
For people who are healing from emotional wounds, abuse, trauma and tragedy there is a technique that can help you see the progress you are making. This method will reduce the despair that comes up when one realizes they have to work on old issues once again.
“I thought we already worked on that!”
Now, when feeling distressed because you have to work on that “old issue” again and you know you made great progress before and again wondering why it feels so big once again – replace that thinking. Try ranking how much the response to an old issue is bothering you. If you identify feeling “the holidays are making me sad again”. You might decide it feels like a 7 (on a 1-10 scale) then you can compare it to the years when it felt like a 10.
Ranking the intensity of your feelings gives you a mechanism to see progress.
As I suggested before, when triggered again check the intensity; it may have risen but usually won’t be as high as it was in the first place.
Use the scale to increase your overall perspective and proceed with your healer to get greater relief. You deserve it. Inner peace is possible.
