14 On Appreciating Deeper Processes - The Process



EXPERIENCE has taught us that throughout this process of developing a healthy spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional direction for ourselves (recovery), we have been involved with a quieter undercurrent of examin­ing the value of stepping outside of ourselves, our beliefs, and their related support systems, and taking in again some of the problems we are facing or have faced. 
Seeing things differently has the power to transform situations. 


Simple Fact:
Things Change Once They Are Seen Differently,
Not Necessarily Be­cause We Are Busy Altering The
Circumstances That Surround Them.

13 On Appreciating Deeper Processes - Past Made Present



EXPERIENCE has taught us that most of us are secretly reliving things that are no longer present in our lives.  We are protecting ourselves from demons that are no longer there. 
Psychic shadow boxing - again it appears.
It is true that life is a place filled with the weird, the wonderful, and the colorful, and we do have to consider using caution with some things.  But we can do it from an adult perspective and see things as they are, not as they used to be. 
The demons were real once; that much is true.  It just may not be true now.

Being Open To The Fact That The Past Is Not The Present
Allows Room For The Soul To Come Out Of Hiding And
To Grow And Mature.

12 On Appreciating Deeper Processes - On the Art of Letting Go


EXPERIENCE has taught us that the art of letting go requires us to:
·      Identify and name the specific upset, problem, or conflict.
·      Reflect upon it from our powerful inner lives. 
·      Talk about it with safe people (note—begin with: “This reminds me of . . .”).   Ask those safe people for feedback. 
·      Name the core issues, talk about them some more, and ask for more feedback. 
·      Select, if necessary, an appropriate experiential technique.  Use the technique to work on specific conflicts and feelings at a deeper level (regression, confrontation, etc.).  Talk and write more about it. 
·      Meditate and pray on the subject (give God a chance to participate). 
·      Seriously consider, “how might I benefit from this entire experience of facing my demons?” 
·      If you still feel incomplete, repeat any or all of the above. 
·      Then, when you feel ready - let go!  Skydiving can be fun.

Skydiving Can Be Fun
The emphasis is on
“Can”
