Helping our patients to reconcile and integrate the feeling and thinking mind

The mind is pretty tricky.

We see many folks who are unable to reconcile and integrate their feeling and thinking mind very well. This then of course can lead to many misunderstandings and unnecessary dramas.

Something happens.
Arises a feeling.
Triggers a thought.
Set off another feeling.
Comes another thought.
Then more thoughts and feelings alternating to arrive at a particular narrative.

The problem is, if there is not enough mindfulness,“pause”, and accurate processing in between the feelings and thoughts, we will have trouble.

A small error in thought or feeling at the very beginning, can lead one to a disastrous narrative.

Like a rocket with a one degree off-course from the start, we can end up in a very different place.
