There are perhaps countless variations of technique to open up and process our painful or disturbing material, all of some value. But beyond opening the door and entering into any of your darkened zones, there is something more to gain, and that is the resurgence and reconnection with all that this material shut you off from, the recognition and regaining of your territory.
For this purpose, I offer and myself use this simple question in our session, after the painful or disturbing material is spiritually digested, and thus relieved as standard operating procedure:
“What can you now have?”
This question is an invitation to step out into the light of your larger world again, and invokes recognition, joy and a greater sense of your happy self and well-being. All my trainees are to know to use and take advantage of this question as the final step of any technique.
