Control is such a demand of the ego. I want something and if I don’t get it I’m going to be sad or mad.

Control was a the the root of my eating disorder nd my addictions. I wanted reality to be a certain way, but rather than softening and accepting, I resisted and clenched down.

In relationships we can find ourselves trying to manipulate the situation are in to match how we want it to be. We try to control the outside when we don’t know how to deal with the inside.

So we need to learn how to deal with big feelings.

It’s important to appease the ego a little by remembering what we can control:

The Breath

Our Thoughts

Our Reactions

You can use your breath and direct it in your body into the areas of tension. You can use the tantric practice of breathing and brining awareness to 3 areas and recycling that energy over and over again

Pelvic Floor

Heart

Third Eye

You can do this with a partner or at a mirror.

Let the emotions that wash over you be ok.
