I want to share with you an experience happened to me:
I'm a handicaped, i walk with the help of hand and leg braces, and i was with my friends having picnic outside the city, i was sitting in a large tent, then one of my friends shout "Hey! there's a snake behind you!".
After that i just realized that i was outside the tent.What happened? they told me i jumped outside the tent, without thinking.Was i affraid? Sure! but i don't remember. So, this is the power of the feeling without labeling the feeling as BAD or GOOD, just reclaim its power.
Fear to protect you, It's a GIFT.
Pain to warn you that there's something wrong.
Worry to warn you that you're thinking in the future and and not in the NOW.
Sadness, you're thinking in the past.
So every feeling has a power you have to reclaim it.I think this is the pupose of the feeling exercise.
