Sidestep and look at the energy - “that’s interesting”!
Perhaps precursor to this exercise is the realisation that when I am grounded deep in me I find things interesting - I don’t react yes or react no. I just observe .. I don’t let these observations push me into action. I observe and when I choose to act I act then I return to a place of observation.
Water empath lesson
Alan Walker - Diamond Heart
I’d give you all my love - if I was unbreakable.
Brene Brown - vulnerability
Sociopath-sometimes when we get out of relationships that are very toxic we feel like sociopath.
We are used to feeling a constant extreme mix of emotions due to the pushing and pulling that happens on our aura.
When this suddenly stops we often feel nothing - like this void of emotion. Gently and gradually we come to connect back to our emotions as they gently trickle into our awareness perhaps anger, sadness, other gentle, soft feelings. Eventually intrigue and the joy that comes from seeing everything for the first time.
Water training .. aikido.. sidestep and watch the punch go straight past. Likewise sidestep and watch the emotion go straight past. Regard the emotion with a sense of intrigue and wonder.
Use your arm to redirect the person’s energy as they try to hit you as you sidestep. They will scream “don’t touch me! How dare you hit me! How dare you attack me!” Then they’ll line you up and strike again. Use your hand again to redirect and sidestep. Again they’ll scream at you.. they want you to feel what they’re giving you and you’re choosing “no”. Ignore what they want you to do. Just view their words as interesting. You choose. You choose to sidestep and avoid their energy stream.
Push/pull. Explain the concept of how people push back when they’re pushed.. and pull away when pulled.. and to make someone push into you - all you need to do is push them. Use this regarding consent: would you like a hug?
In aikido if someone pushes you.. you spin and push with them.. there ARE other options than just reacting
Water bending Chi Gong
Energy can’t be lost.. we can push it out and we can whip it back.. we can make chords of energy from us to something or someone else.. and we can with draw that energy back into us again. We can take our power back inside us.
Rise up your energy - pull it up. Put it back
Pull it up and out - maybe this is making a wall of energy. Close down the wall.. put your energy back
Paint the sky with a rainbow
Scoop it from behind to the front.. maybe energy to the sides?
big circle wings - push your energy out as far out from you as you can maybe this is diagonal energy
Pull energy up at the sides - scoop a ball of energy and lift it up
Scoop up a ball and paint it across
Push energy out from you into a birdbath
Scoop from the birdbath and sprinkle it on your head
Lastly: raise your giant energy wings and feel through the energy field.. enjoying it
Pull energy up inside you all the way to your head then paint it down your outsides
Scoop all the energy that we’ve placed outside ourselves back into our Hara
Sit and feel into what our body feels.. feel into our Hara and feel what that feels like now sitting inside ourself .. feel what your hands feel like sitting on top of it.
Chakras - how they work
Throw a pebble in the water and a small splash 💧
Throw a stone in the water and big splash 💦
Throw a boulder into the water 🌊
Water takes what it is given.. it moves aside and around what it is given and then circles around and smashes out in a wave with the same energy that it absorbed
Water can only use the energy it has absorbed to move energy from one location to another wind makes waves, rocks make splashes
A chakra spins like water going down a plug hole.. but the energy going in squeezes on the energy inside and pushes energy out also.. which is why when someone comes to you who is hurting - we are pulled towards them.. our chakras absorb the energy of their pain, squeeze, move aside and around it and push back with equal force. We can balance all energy that is thrown at us.
This is how chi works - in and around and out. Out and around and back.
Water Dancing - Chi Gong.
The second chakra - our Sacral chakra is our water chakra. It holds our creativity, our fun and excitement as well as who we feel we are. Feel it like a heavy weight of water deep down in your stomach.. weighing it right down. This is called your Hara.
And today we’re going to play with it and learn some water-bending.
First, to get a feel for our Hara we’re going to do some ancient Chinese water bending called Chi Gong.
Stance, breathing flow up, flow down, feel the weight of your Hara pulling you to the ground. [first few Chi Gong poses]
Water is heavy and strong, it can smash apart rocks, yet still be gentle enough to hold up a feather. It ebbs and it flows.
Show Hara stance pushing energy down and try to push them over.
Water flows in circles.
Have you heard of a Tsunami? A tidal wave 🌊? Before the wave hits it pulls all the water back from the beach first then roars in.
Demonstrate Earth and Heaven AiKiDo when someone grabs both wrists.. we come back, we fall away while the other hand becomes the Tsunami, twists and comes over to push back into the person.
Water-dancing is about allowing someone’s energy to push yours.. this allows you to feel it - this allows you to sense how strong it is.. what direction it’s coming from - to even sense the way it vibrates - sense its frequency..
But when they energy smashes into us - we don’t be a rock - we be water.. we create space and pull them in as our first reaction. We then turn them in a big circle and guide them somewhere else.
I really hate you
Energy In: Tell me more about that!
Energy Stall: <what?>
Energy guide and push back, take control: tell me more about what’s on your heart. I want to listen.
Draw EVERYTHING inwards all the time so that you can taste it.
You can always move out the way and move around the energy - sampling it in every direction.. sensing where it comes from, what it tastes like, feels like.. if this were my energy inside me (which it now is) what would I be feeling? Allow your self to feel it..
But as the force of the energy pushes inside us.. out water energy surges with equal force to respond - not directly but around the sides, over the top and underneath.
Water sword: once you’ve allowed the energy to push inside you - you use it to flow back out like a water sword - piercing straight through the gap in the person’s armour that they attacked you through..
But we attack with love. We go straight in.. and we pour the weight of the truth of our love inside. And that hits them right in the place where they attacked you from smashing into that place and all through their entire chakra system
When someone dumps emotions in .. we wrap around them .. tasting them. Then dive into them - the process of diving into them sets up a chain reaction in them like throwing a rock into a pond - you pushing into them forces things out of them like a splash.. we can say something like “tell me about where that came from?”
“It looks like you’re struggling today. Tell me about it.”
“Keep it coming. I want to hear more.”
Pull people who push at you.
If you push back they will keep pushing.
If you pull someone they will naturally pull back..
You counter with the opposite.
So if someone then pulls back you sit here and open up and create a space for them to talk - it’s like creating a vacuum.. but creating a void - people want to fill it. By stopping talking - people want to share.
Which is the beauty of the Chi of water.. watching how another person’s energy flows when it’s been touched by an outside force can give us clear insight into their internal landscape 😜
Empath Trick #15
Training.. what was the last angry thing you said to Cooper..
Say it to me with as much feeling.. I’ll stand next to Cooper.
BOOM.. feel that.. feel it hit you.. feel the force of it - is it sharp or flat.. how does it resonate inside you... now allow yourself to spring back and respond through the hole she’s left in the attack..
Wow. That really hurt. You must be carrying a lot. You feel like you’re carrying a lot.. what’s on your heart, Mum?
You cannot cause damage to water.. it doesn’t crack, or break.
It just absorbs and responds..
The damage occurs when we try to hold back the water .. as it crashes around inside us.. don’t hold it back.. let it respond directly like a laser beam of water straight down the muzzle of the source.. like a needle.
There are no wrong feelings
All feelings are just feelings.
We sometimes get scared to feel them because they seem to big that we might get swept away by them - but we won’t.. we are the observer of our feelings.. so let’s observe: <lesson>
Look upon our emotions as something that’s as beautiful as natural as changes in the weather
We are ashamed to feel our feelings.. and shame is exactly what blocks our water chakra. Our feelings are the solution to this unblocking - not the cause of the problem.
Feel into them.. allow them to flow, feel them deeply inside us and allow their expression.
Anger, hatred, violence come from suppressing these emotions down. True emotional response to being hurt by someone’s words are to feel hurt - not to hit back in anger and want to hurt them too.. that’s what a closed chakra does.
