Try this.  Invite someone to create a safe space for you and listen to you.  Ask them to bring their presence and open heart to the process.  Share your feelings, just as they show up.  Tell them to interrupt you as soon as you start telling stories, explanations, thoughts.  Let them redirect you by saying with care and compassion:  “Uhm, that sounds like a thought.  What are you feeling? ”  Connect to yourself and share your feelings.  And immerse yourself in the peace of witnessing this constantly changing stream of experiences, held in the safety of unconditional acceptance.
