Sacred Holding Practice

Jun 22, 2021

When it comes to making change, even something as simple as clearing out clutter can bring up strong emotions. Our natural inclination is to suppress them, but over time that can prove to be problematic.

Today, I'm teaching you how to recognize, hold and release these strong feelings so that you can move forward on your best path.

Sacred Holding Practice

  1. Close your eyes and take three slow, deep breaths. As you breathe in, feel the calm light flowing into your body. As you breathe out, exhale what you no longer need. Breathe in peace, breathe out the past.

  2. Bring into your mind's eye a point of pain—something that has caused you to suffer. This could be an event, experience, or even a person. As you picture this point of pain, examine it without judgement. Refrain from evaluating it; simply see it.

  3. Now, listen to your body. Really tune in, checking over every part of you from head to toe. Notice where the pain lives in your body while you picture your pain point. Sit with the physical pain and hold it in your consciousness until it begins to release. You may cry—and that's not just okay, it's healthy. You're expressing your pain in order to release it.

  4. Once the emotion begins to release, bring the pain point back up in your mind's eye. Try to feel the same intensity as you did before you began to release it. If the feelings are just as strong, perform the Sacred Holding again and again until the emotion is no longer accessible. Do this until it is truly released from the body. 

Say this affirmation: 
I release the need to self-judge and judge others. I release the need to blame. I am forgiveness. I am forgiven. All is well.
