WORK ON THE REGULATION OF EMOTIONS WITH SOPHROLOGY IS ONE OF THE PILLARS OF INNER BALANCE.
Struggling with our emotions we lock ourselves in a virtual prison when we regulate them poorly. That is to say when we are the victim instead of being the accompanists. These emotional waves throw us into ruminating. Which is formalized in a kind of prison whose walls would be states of minds of anxiety, sadness, anger. Locked in this phenomenon like a lion in a cage, we rehash the worry, the injustice in a sterile and closed thought. Instead of looking for how we might solve a problem, we focus on why or what concerns the future, we fix ourselves in negative anticipation.
Ruminations are ways of locking oneself into moods by turning away from more constructive reflection or by turning away from action.
But let's not forget that our states of mind are also the expression of our sensitivity, which should not be suppressed or blocked. They are a connector to the world, which is why we must be attentive and be careful not to take refuge in an emotional turmoil made up of negative feelings of frustration, of worry that cuts us off from the connection to others, to what surrounds us.
Because the process in the rumination phase is that we leave the present moment, no longer being in the reality of the here and now, left in a world of rumination, we take care of ourselves in suffering by ruminating on the focus of 'a negative state of mind linked to the event.
From perception to writing:
From the start of a session to after the session, you might think that there is a link between emotional management and writing life (or practice experience)
Let us consider the transcription of the phenodescription (description of the phenomena experienced in consciousness during the session) as a work of introspection. The fact of forcing ourselves regularly to write what we have lived and felt, perceived, understood, integrated, towards what state of mind this brings us, can serve as a work of clarification (unveiling of consciousness) and why not have a preventive, therapeutic or other effect.
Write very regularly to transpose what we perceive, even if we feel discomfort or inconvenience, even if it does not solve the problems, even if it does not instantly relieve our ailments, little by little it will lead us to d advantage of clarity in our inner states.
Confusion being one of the great causes of inner suffering, the fact that we do not understand what is happening to us, leads us to an unstable and sometimes painful state.
Self-writing can help us think about our problems better. It is easy to think about our problems and start ruminating, but it is difficult to write ruminating because we see that repetitive writing always produces this same sterile manifestation. Forcing oneself to write down one's experience is a way of partly escaping ruminations, and of orienting oneself towards a path of resolution.
Put your mind down here and now, and stop doing things and just be who we are right now. Become aware of how we breathe, what our body is like, what sounds we hear around us, watch our thoughts and moods pass.
Making these small connections regularly familiarizes us with our inner world, develops a capacity to perceive our state of presence.
The written word (which will also go through all forms of expressions) allows us to confirm the phenomenon of consciousness that we are looking for in sophrology.
