Today I journaled about flunking out of college 30+ years ago. There were a lot of emotions that came up then and now, but back then I stuffed them. I stuffed them so deep that I treated my flunking out as a secret, and for 25 years I didn't tell anyone, even my husband. When I "came out" 5 or 6 years ago, it felt good. I talked about the feelings that I had back then, but it's still not fun to revisit them today. After I journaled I did a short meditation that really felt wonderful. I released that old stuff and made peace with my past- it has only served me and not hurt me. And then, just because I could, I burned some white sage. I've had some bad back days since I got out of the hospital Tuesday night, but woke up early this morning feeling much better. But I did notice that while I was journaling, my back started to ache. I laughed at it and told it that it didn't need to do that anymore, that the things I was feeling were being released and acknowledged. What kind of things do you all say to your TMS? What words work the best for you? Some of you have shared that you are able to stop a bout of TMS in minutes- I would SO like to be there! Please share how you do that, so I can start to practice and develop my own methods.... Thanks so much, and everybody have a terrific day. Those of you that are in the path of this huge winter storm, know that those of us in warmer climates are thinking of you, and praying for you too.
