4 Simple Steps to Limitless JoyJun 01, 2022
So I was sitting at the dinner table with a new friend who asked….”what quality do you love most about yourself?”
I paused for a moment and said, “I love the way I’m able to experience joy.”
His eyes widened as he threw his hands in the air - “holy crap! YES! I wanna know how you’re so joyful because it also feels very grounded.”
So here we are, he’s on the edge of his seat, eyes wide as if I’m about to reveal the secret key to the universe. I feel a sense of responsibility to not let him down.
I mean he’s probably hoping it’s something cutting edge like microdosing or some luxurious morning routine complete with all the latest biohacking gadgets.
So when the words..”I feel all my feelings..” fall from my mouth I expect to find a subtle look of disappointment on his face.
To my surprise he leans in and says…”Ohhh yea, that makes so much sense! Tell me MORE…”
Over the years I’ve discovered four key steps to becoming a rockstar feelings feeler:
- NOTICE the felt sense (constriction in your throat, twisting in your belly, pounding in your chest etc)
- ACCEPT unconditionally what’s arising (without judgment) - this is the most important step! 🙌
- BREATHE slowly and compassionately alongside all of your sensations
- ALLOW your emotions to organically pass like the weather without looping back into the same thought patterns. If you notice looping thoughts, embrace them and go back to step 1/ repeat until you feel a clearing or opening. 🧘♀️
Emotions are like water flowing through a pipe (aka your body). Each time you suppress anger, grief, jealousy, frustration, doubt etc. -- it blocks the flow of water. So you might have blocked shame, but now only a tiny trickle of joy can get through.
Your capacity for joy is directly proportional to your willingness to dance with pain.
Bc when you embrace the beauty of darkness, move and make art with the ache, you become an unstoppable force for the greatest Love and Joy beyond your wildest imagination.
