Slide 10

Barriers to Reckoning With Emotion Living Divided Chandeliering –when a minor comment or conflict triggers a pain so great that we “jump as high as the chandelier” with our emotional response Bouncing Emotion – Anger, Blame, & Avoidance Numbing/Masking – alcohol, drugs, food, sex, money, work, gambling, affairs, shopping, internet/social media Stockpiling/Denying – sleeplessness, can’t eat, anxiety attacks, clinical depression, disease

Slide 14

The Stories We Make Up

Slide 15

Stormy First Draft (What happened?) Conspiracies Confabulations I like these socks because… We fill in the gaps with… GET IT ALL OUT UNEDITED

Slide 16

Examples Guy in a Mercedes speeds ahead of me on Pine Island Road. . . Wife says to her husband, “You’re going to wear that?” Husband says to wife, “You want me to do that for you?”

Slide 17

Primary Conspiracies & Confabulations The Wholeheartedness Robbers Lovability – “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” Jeremiah 31:3 Worth – “So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27 Creativity – “God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.” 1 Corinthians 12:6

Slide 18

Ready to Rumble: Three Questions Toward Truth What more do I need to learn & understand about the situation? (facts & assumptions) What more do I need to learn & understand about the other people? (missing information & clarifications) What more do I need to learn & understand about myself? (What is underneath my response?) (What am I really feeling?) (What part did I play?)

Slide 19

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

Slide 20

”Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

Slide 21

PRAYER FOR TRUTH Beloved Light of Love, Somewhere within my troubled scared mind Is the truth of my beloved self. A self that is not weak, but strong, Not flawed or damaged, But whole and perfect.

Slide 22

Not full of pain, but basking in peace. Not doubtful, but sure. Not proud, but humble, Confident, loving, serene and joyful.

Slide 23

I am ready to travel a new road, A road of gentleness and grace. I have been caught and playing in a world of deception, A world of sickness and addiction. A world of limitation and regret.

Slide 24

In this moment, my Dear God, I choose to be released from all this pain. Your Will for me is so beautiful,  So light-filled, so magnificent.

Slide 25

Within the embrace of Your Will for me All negativity will be transformed. I join Your Will for me. I invoke Your Light.

Slide 26

I am no longer willing to be a prisoner of the world I made. I receive the Truth of Your Peace that replaces the hell  Of this limited world.

Slide 27

I am ready for a new way. I move out of my belief in weakness into Your Eternal Strength, Out of this little self I made, into You! Amen
