Larry, that was really insightful, and seems a very useful tool in order to address a negative thought cycle.

Thanks.

Thanks for the replies. They have put me back on track. For me, I have to keep it simple. I have re-discovered that if I do anything but simply watch thoughts, feelings and emotions I end up locked in making stories. I don't know about others, but for me, any forcing at all is a problem. If I try to...

Sometimes it seems to me, when I am meditating deeply and can see the pain body clearly, that it would be a good thing to just move into it or bring presence into it and that will help dissolve it. I have done this. It is intense and my body tenses up. Or sometimes at this juncture I will try to acc...

OMG, okay I can see that makes sense. I don't know why I keep going off track with this stuff, it is so easy to get drawn back in to stories. There is part of me that doesn't trust the techniques or wants to give up. Last night I had such a deep meditation and could feel the constriction in my chest...

She has come down somewhat from that experience. I think we both experienced a release of pain, but pain bodies remain. However there is a deeper sense of peace so there must have been progress. And now she understands spiritualism and knows about dissolving the pain body, so that is good. With rega...

I forgot to mention that last night, I had violent involuntary shakes up and down my body - nothing like anything I have felt ever before. I assumed is was the death throws of the pain-body. But alas this morning, though I had a much increased sense of peace, I seemed to be hanging on to some negati...

An Amazing Experience

I should point out that my partner and I are come from a western rational tradition (were quite cynical about new agism for example) and so this series of events is quite unexpected... For a couple of months I have been dissolving the pain body. First body pain, then anxiety and then emotional pain ...

Agnieszka, what you described is almost identical to the sensations that I experienced only a few weeks ago. I thought I was gonna die. But do you know what? the fear, breathing difficulty and palpatations did not last long at all. I overcame them fairly quickly with a combination of (coincidently) ...

Thanks for your encouragement. It is nice to hear that I am on track. The quote from Adyashanti was also helpful.

Chocolate Cake of the Soul

I was having some sort of anxiety attack, I was in bed trying observe the chocolate cake anxiety impartially, following JDs advice below: 1) You can eat more cake. This will once more charge up the thought-form, which will be even stronger the next time it surfaces. That's how cycles of addiction ar...

Thanks JD and Eseward. In my case the emotions have nothing to do with anger, though JD, that was probably just an example and your advice would apply to any emotion. Maybe if I put it another way. You are right, lets not act on raw emotions. However, the emotions that came out revealed to me some u...

Is the universe material or full of space? Here are some things to consider: - The universe is mostly made up of space - a vacuum with no matter in it at all (though there is a newish theory suggesting that matter pops in and out of existence everywhere in the universe spontaneously). Sometimes a ph...

where is the line?

To follow up on this post and my experiences over the last couple of months. I followed the practice of impartially observing physical pain, emotional energy and thoughts for about a month. And I succeeded in reducing physical pain first around the neck, then back, then spine. There was always deepe...

thanks for the advice. Actually, something that was said about tracking the feelings back to the thoughts feels right and has made it clearer. Eseward, it is similar for me, in terms of neck and back pain (which brought me to this stuff in the first place), I know that at least a fair portion is tie...
