Let’s face it; sometimes you want to rip your Family of Origin a new one. Oh i know, there are a few families out there who actually ‘get along’, but come on, they’re in the minority. This is where Scream Therapy can come in very handy. It can be a life-saver and a relationship saver.
Often our biggest triggers are with our Original Family. Somehow family can push our buttons like no one else. That’s because our emotional history is so deep here, and also our deepest damage.
Before you begin Scream Therapy Lesson 1, let me give you some tips. Scream privately. If you feel triggered into emotions, remove yourself to somewhere safe and private before letting ‘er rip. A drive in the car can be helpful. Just make sure you are not in a place where you can have an accident.
There is a huge backlog of emotions under the scream that’s on top of your emotions, and you need to get more familiar with what’s in this mystery territory. You need to get to know yourself better here. Don’t be too logical about this. Don’t censor your emotions before letting them move. Your emotions have a story to unfold and tell you, and you need to lovingly allow them the space to do that.
After emotions have moved, spend some quiet time with yourself. This is the time when understandings start to come in. If you do this, you will have less of a chance of destroying your supposedly good time, and ruining your relationships with what your rage wants to say to people.
I have done this for many years, and I know of what I speak. Trust me here.
I always find it interesting that the universe seems to conspire with tweeking reality for our optimal triggers if we are holding something emotionally. This is actually a loving thing, even though it might not feel like it at the time. Your emotional body is holding all of this backlog and it really does need relief. So you magnetically draw in the perfect circumstances for your own particular perfect storm. How perfect is that!
Have a perfect Thanksgiving.
