EMOTIONAL COMPOSURE PRACTICE
The intensity of a feeling is proportionate to our fear of it. Therefore each time a feeling is examined with curiosity it’s power diminishes. This ‘examining with curiosity’ causes each emotion to stop running the show and they comes back less and less powerfully.
For example if we fear our own anger then it has the capacity to well up intensely. However if we have little fear of our anger it can only appear subtly. The same goes for all other feelings.
The practice of emotional composure allows us to stop suppressing and repressing new feelings and allows us to peacefully release stored up ones. A large benefit of this method of healing is that it gives us insight so that we can heal mentally as well as emotionally and stop being trapped in the ongoing confusion and turmoil that so often accompanies trauma.
