As I sat this week, I was feeling stuck on my DMP. I have been suffering with my back and sciatica, so focusing, sitting and sleeping have been a challenge. Sitting still for the 15 to 30 mins have had little success. However, I have had my 4th Decompression session and now starting to feel more relief on my nerve pain. Sleep has been a real treat with and without good drugs. Each day since last Monday, my affirmation has been, “Today I begin a new life.”
My longest sit was about 12 mins and I experienced fear and sadness. I spoke with a coach friend after my experience and she worked with me to stay in the sadness and to stay with the feelings. My chest was getting increasingly tighter and my back and sciatica were throbbing like the sound from a bass drum being struck at a feverish pace. About 20 mins into the coaching session my sensations began to lighten. We kept working and the sadness and fear passed on. I actually felt a rush of Gratitude, Compassion and Hope for my health situation. I mentioned to my friend that it feels to me that Gratitude, Compassion and Hope Live Together in a Peapod. They seem to work harmoniously together and or One of them lead to the others.
My peapod of feelings, sent on my way to the first draft of my DMP.
