Integration: Revisiting Developmental Tasks

The deeper the work you do, especially when you work with full, nine-part sets, or even more so when you dig deep into three-set constellations, the more likely it is for you to find yourself in a place where you feel like a raw novice in some area of your life.

Integration: Spontaneous Re-Patterning

It might seem that changing a life is a lot of work. It might seem after you have mapped and moved half a dozen feeling states, or a full set of nine, that you should take a step back and make a five year plan. I can tell you that is unnecessary.

Integration: As Within, So Without

In doing the work of Feelingwork, it is natural for us to gradually evolve our outer lives to more fully match our inner lives. But sometimes that natural evolution can be obstructed. In these cases, it can be very important to draw the focus of change inward.

Integration: Rehearsing the Future

In the same way that we can go back and rewrite our interpretations of the past, we can imagine ourselves into the future to re-craft our expectations. By doing so, we can make it easier and more likely that we will respond in new ways to situations that used to trigger our reactive states.

Integration: Rewriting the Past

When you shift into an ideal state, take some time with your past. You don’t have to do it right away, but at some point within a few days of shifting a state, look back on those times in which the old, reactive state used to be triggered.

Integration: Riding the Spectrum

Our old way of managing our internal environment was to highlight some states and diminish others. It can be tempting to engage in this state chasing after you’ve mapped and moved a really uncomfortable feeling. However, in this exercise you will use your feeling state maps to deliberately revisit your old, reactive states.

Mystery and Images

Reflecting today on the process of finding and adapting the images for my articles, I realized there’s something about the entire way I’m going about it that speaks to the essential nature of Feelingwork mapping.

What is a “part?”

Let’s say you’ve tried mapping and moving a feeling state. You’ll notice the feeling state you ended up with has a clear relationship with the first state. The second, ideal state feels more like the “real” you. How did this happen? Or more to the point: what happened?

Louise 7: Further Reflections

The big work that Louise did is really just the beginning of her journey. Releasing the old, reactive patterns and accessing the ideal states has freed up a massive amount of creative energy. Having these ideal states fully available doesn’t mean life suddenly becomes easy, though.
