Whether you feel controlled by someone else…
By your own worst selves…
Or maybe by barbed wire meant to protect your heart and keep others as well as “unwanted” parts of self out…
It’s Just You !
Don’t keep yourself out. Don’t hate yourself. You don’t have to.
Hate programs that run you and practice saying yes to yourself. All parts of yourself. Say “Yes-Us!”
Yes to the one who tries to control parts, because they overwhelm your nervous system. Yes to the one who is controlled. It is not possible for that part to feel empowered before you will see, feel, love and care for it.
Say Yes to parts that are hiding and won’t show up to face life anymore.
A friend who suffers from anxiety said, “It feels so bad now all day long. Nothing I do helps anymore. I just want to go out. Hide. Turn all lights of and drift in sleep.”
We talked for a while and I told her about “The Way of Light: “Yes-Us!” and why it is important to say Yes to the anxious part AND to the part that wants to control her anxiety. She didn’t want to say Yes.
She is a friend, so I asked if I could sing a Soulful Relating chant I tend to sing when parts in me don’t want to say Yes. She said Yes.
To let the anxious one and the one who is overwhelmed by the anxious one know that they are seen and felt, I told her she could sing with me:
I see you in the morning, I see you in the day, I see you through the dark night, I see you all the way. I feel you in the morning, I feel you in the day, I feel you through the dark night, I feel you all the way.
She was afraid to let herself see and feel the anxious one. She said, “That part would completely take over my life.”
What could one say? A photo says it all…
To reach and love the part in her afraid to be taken over, we added a verse:
I love you in the morning, I love you in the day, I love you through the dark night, I love you all the way.
She said she’ll have to practice meaning it.
What do you say?
If you want to connect your ego and parts your ego can’t love with the One in you who loves all of you, feel invited to chant with us. 💕
