Slide number 9 in my workshop “Understanding emotions” is about looking at our own judgements.
It’s easier said then done that we have no judgements, of course we do and we need them too, but becoming aware of them means we can start playing with them and than life gets more manageable. Awareness of what we do is always the first and kind of hardest step. Once we know we have a chance. If we stay in denial the doors stay closed. But here is a trick for denial. Even if we are in denial, we can start bringing awareness to our denial and welcoming our denial.
I used to think “Oh no I’m in denial, I need to be a better person and work on myself!”
But that is just another way of judging yourself instead of understanding yourself. Every feeling has a message for us and it starts showing when we allow it; even if we allow us to not allow or to deny
