Do you believe that if you intellectually understand Inner Bonding without practicing it, change occurs?
Think of it this way: If you read a lot of books about working out, but you don’t actually work out, will your body get into shape?
If you read nutrition books but don’t change to a healthy diet, will you get healthier?
If you read about playing an instrument but don’t practice the instrument, will you learn to play it?
Inner Bonding is no different. It is a practice.
Resistance to Practicing
If you are resistant to practicing, there are good reasons for it. Actually, exploring your resistance is part of the practice. Here are some of the reasons you might be resisting the practice of Inner Bonding:
- If I open to my feelings, they might overwhelm me.
If this is your fear, then you need to do some groundwork first. You might need some trauma therapy, such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or SE (Somatic Experiencing) to de-escalate the intensity of your feelings and help you learn to regulate them.
