We were told today that someone starting out on the original course has been experiencing physical effects. Shaking, coldness and more. It can sometimes be a little scary at first and easy to blame releasing for this, and sometimes it is at this point if we begin to feel almost unwell that we may stop the audio course completely.
What advice would you give on this?
What did you do perhaps if it happened to you when you did the basic course?
Anything else you would like to add here, please do so.....it will be very helpful for those beginning in SM or RT...
Thankyou for reading this...
I had a sort of panic attack at the first month - I felt like I damaged myself using the method, tried to "fix" it using the method, and all that spiraled down into a big, epic mind struggle.
After that, with no good advice from experienced releasers, I stopped for a few days, tried it very mildly, then returned to it gradually and discovered that it's all just feelings.
Hi Omar and Lisa,
Me too. My hands were shaking, trembling and nervousness rushed throughout my body today and I was wondering what happened at that moment. I was in the kitchen just doing normal chores after doing some releasing on a list I developed of the things that I am proud of. I was being tough on the energy and trying to overcome some resistance which is not that smart. Finally, I allowed it to be and started giving it love and approval that caused the clutching to ease up some and I felt better. So I decided to take a break from releasing and work on finishing my chores.
I was working on being proud to be the only sibling to complete a college degree and I had tremendous clutching which really surprised me. I have no clue why that bothered me but apparantly it did. I was so glad to find more things to release on that is stuck in my subconscious mind. It's not that pleasent doing this type of releasing but I am looking forward to the benefits when it all gone. I wrote down two pages of things that I'm proud of and will continue on.
I think the body and nervous system was a little overwhelmed and that's why I was trembling so bad. I'm having memories come up that I thought I long forgot about that seems like a different world now.
I have a question for Lisa or any of the crew here. Is there a section here on hootless where people can fill out a journal of all the different things they are releasing on and how much? That would help us keep up the momentum up while reading how others are applying the methods and uncovering feelings that have to leave. I would like to have a place to write down my goals and check off once completed along with a short story. Things happen when releasing that is difficult to believe when it's right in front of our eyes so I think any reenforcement of goals achieved, especially from others would help quite a bit. I expect to see great things from all the folks here. :-)
Thanks for reading my thoughts and experiences.
