The Rattling Lid

Putting labels on emotions–mad, sad, scared–is akin to putting the lid on a bubbling pot–soon the energy will spurt out, rattling the lid. With emotions, labels act as a defense mechanism, allowing mind to regain control. It is a loosing game, our energy is bubbling.

The more we repress, the louder the eventual explosion.

  1. “What we resist, persists.” So true! There is so much to be said for Allowing – which, as you stated, includes not even labeling things on the first place. They just Are. And our spirits grow from them, on a cosmic level, without judgement.
