How would you love to smell and how would you love to bathe? How do you feel when you follow that enjoyment and choice? Imagine it and feel what it does to you. Hold on to the feeling.
In the 1960-90s the idea was that we should go into our traumas and really feel them, dive into them to get through them relieved and happy. Become more complete. Some people became more fulfilled in their ambition to "collect dead areas and revitalise them".
At the same time, there are many people who want benefit of that approach. Unfortunately quite many get stuck there. The tendency today is "that everything we give our focus grows". This also was the Gestalt psychology "in the old days," but now it is used in a new way. We can choose focus to joy, resources and strengths. To verbalise it doesn´t exclude to recognize or acknowledge our resources.
It is just; what do you choose to give energy to.
To spell it out, "Are you bathing in your faeces to break free of it?" Or do you select more delicious scents, water and oils? Figuratively speaking then the faeces will be rinsed out with the water. Some will oppose that there is "gold in the faeces". Perhaps, but it is also the case with joy, resources and with pleasure. So why not choose this way?
Some bathe for many years in how their childhood was. At the end of the day one thing is being in grief over something happening in the present as a lost beloved one and so on. It is quite different matter in adulthood to continually be focused on what was in the childhood. Here is my clear message that it is all about YOUR OWN RECOGNITION OF YOURSELF. As soon as you allow yourself to be you in the present you´ll let go of the martyr, the victim and the faeces.
It's smart to go to mentors, psychotherapists (with positive focus), nourishing communities with exquisiteness and authenticity where you are supported so much that you learn to recognize yourself, dare to be yourself without running away from you. It can be a shortcut. When you dare to be yourself, it becomes less important what everyone else thinks, because you always have yourself and you have chosen you. You´ll fill yourself with your present and vitality.
There are many ways to live and experience our life. Why choose sadness, anger, powerlessness, when you have the possibility of choosing joy, pleasure and exquisiteness. It's a matter of practice and every day choice now that you have been presented for that possibility. If not before then now.
I invite you to the life with delicious aromas, joy, love and success. I invite you to the feeling you created at the top of the article (or even better), where you bathe in what you love. Hold on to it until you come to a new and even more delicious image and feeling that you want to bathe you in.
For Joy, Love & Success
