Articles on Integrating States You've Mapped and Moved
After you’ve shifted a feeling from its reactive state to its ideal, you’re going to find that your impulses are different, your motivations are different, your beliefs and perceptions are different. But the shape and circumstances of your life can often reinforce your old patterns.
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.
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.
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.
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.
