I like to imagine the stale, emotional energy I have been holding onto in my body as balls of yarn. Each ball of yarn representing years of feelings that I haven’t been ready to acknowledge and feel. All the feelings of hurt, shame, guilt, disappointment, anger, frustration, & embarrassment. All the feelings of not being seen or heard, of insecurity, abandonment or neglect. Of not being good enough & of not feeling worthy.
Layers of yarn that have become wound upon the next holding it together in a tight ball. There can be many of these balls of yarn residing within me in various areas throughout my body at any given time. Each representing an area in my life where I am stuck.
Sometimes they sit in my throat, sometimes in my stomach, in my heart, or in my back. Blocking the energy to flow freely through me and for me.
Each time that I feel ready to acknowledge & feel where I am stuck, each time that I am willing to do my work to heal my wounds, I am unraveling one of those balls layer by layer, enabling it to become smaller and smaller. Until all that remains is a loose, limp pile of yarn that I can release from my body.
The power is within Me to loosen and unravel each of those balls of yarn at any given time. It is within Me to release the limp pile of yarn that remains.
I know that I hold within me the power to live my life without needing to stay stuck in old patterns & beliefs that don’t serve My highest good.
That is a powerful knowing!
