Helping patients to create distance with their minds to reconcile the “feeling and thinking mind”
Part of counseling is to help folks “create distance” from their minds and from that perspective of the “observing self”, it may be easier reconcile and integrate the “thinking mind” vs the “feeling mind”.
It’s not uncommon that our “thinking mind” is fighting with our “feeling mind”. This creates inner conflict.
Logically, we may want to do something but feeling wise, we don’t, AND vice versa.
Logically, everything seems fine, but feeling wise, there’s something wrong, AND vice versa.
When there’s alignment of both, it’s easy. When they are pointing in opposite directions, then it’s much more difficult. It’s like double vision.
Have you had these experiences lately?
I wonder if you can think of a “go to process” for resolving these scenarios.
If you don’t have one, you might run into trouble at some stage.
