In my last article I started a reflexion about being right and wrong. And how believing to be in the right side is reassuring but also creating stress and uneasiness in our body. I would like to continue this reflection sharing with you something more personal: the ping-pong match that sometimes is going on in my brain.
Sometimes, I can experience in myself – and I know that some of my clients do the same – a ping pong match between 2 scenarios or 2 analysis or 2 opposite aspects. I’m not able to stop on one side and to let go the other one. My thinking is continuously moving : on one side I have “this is wrong, but…” and on the other side “this is right, but…”.
“Together with Michelle I was able to solve certain things and now I see them in a different light. It was fascinating how certain emotional blocks were reflected physically. Because she helped me to question my view and I could better interpret the signals from my body with her, I learned to let go and can handle certain circumstances better. Although sometimes it was anything but easy, I was always looking forward to the sessions with Michelle. The rapid progress has strengthened me and shown that I am on the right track. Michelle supported me optimally, never condemned me and I felt well looked after by her. After each session I left her practice relieved. Grinberg positively changed my self-confidence and I became mentally stronger. Thank you.” Denise
Why, at some moments, it is so important to be right? Why it becomes so important to proof to ourselves and to others that our opinions or our actions are correct?
The answer is quite simple: being right reassures us. It is a way to know that we didn’t do anything wrong and eventually that other people are on the wrong side.
Let’s continue the topic of the difference between what is important and what is urgent. In my last articles, we talked about taking time for ourself. We noticed that what is urgent makes us react automatically and neglect what is important in our life. What is nourishing our hearts, minds and relationships.
“In addition to the well-being experienced during the treatments, the therapeutic path has been important to acquire a greater awareness of my body. Some information has remained inside me like seeds and I know that over time I will have the opportunity, taking care of them, to make them sprout.” Daniela, Artist
In my last article we talked about the difference between what is important – and requires time and calmness – and what we perceive as urgent – and leads us to run without taking time to reflect.
