Update: Yesterday, I felt anger come up in my chest. I went ahead and made sure I felt it for a while, putting my focused attention on it as best I could. Currently, my mid-back, at the level of my chest, slumps a little unless I consciously try to keep it straight. But it takes so much effort to keep it straight, I can't do it for very long. Well, when I felt that felt-resonance of anger emanating from my chest, I wondered if it would act like my sinuses acted when I addressed the felt resonance of anger in my head, behind my sinus cavity. Sure enough, as I felt the anger and it started to integrate, it was easier to hold my posture all day instead of slumping all day. In fact, my posture was just a little straighter even when I wasn't consciously holding it straight. It seems that when these emotions start to flow, we gain their energy/fuel for their natural purposes, such as strengthening our muscles, pulling them into normal, healthy positions. I guess that's why Michael Brown mentions that we start to stand up straighter (posture corrects itself) as we go through this process. In an interview, he also says that when he was taking people through this process early on, he noticed that about 8-9 months after they finished their first 10-week session, they started feeling quite a bit better, as if they'd gone through an approximate 9-month-birthing period and emerged at the end, freer than before. How interesting. It reminds me of Jesus saying that we must be "born again" to enter the "kingdom of heaven." (He's talking about entering the Kingdom right now, present tense, not future. The Kingdom is basically representative of connecting with eternity right now. It's "eternal life" being lived in the "eternal present moment.") After that 9-month-birthing period, Michael says people usually do the process over again and experience it a whole new way. He recommends waiting at least 3 weeks, though, to start the process over, so we don't have to wait 9 months. This is really cool. I'm getting more and more confident at letting emotions come up. It's a lot of fun, even when difficult emotions are coming up. It doesn't always feel good, but just knowing the joy and peace that lies beneath those emotions makes the process fun. I'm really enjoying this.
