Your Emotions - When You Feel Hurt

Image
Your Emotions – When You Feel Hurt! When you feel hurt you are usually responding to what you see as an injustice. Usually you feel hurt when you feel something isn’t fair - someone has let you down or treated you in a way you feel is not right. Often, when you feel hurt you will withdraw from the person who has hurt you and stop all communication with them. Others might see this as resentment or aloofness and some see you as sulking. Please don't Sulk! Sulking can be silent sulking or it might be angry, noisy sulking with the slamming of doors and much huffing and puffing. Sometimes you just snipe at someone close to you without saying why.  "Surely, if he loved me enough He would know why!" Often behavior like this is about getting even or punishing – at the very least you want an apology. But sulking rarely achieves the outcome that you want. It can make you more miserable than the person you believe has transgressed. Overcom

Sitting Quietly With Zen

Image
Sitting Quietly With Zen A new version of an older post. Find a quiet place to sit. This can be outside or in.  Take some gentle breaths to calm your mind. Don't look for meaning; just sit, just accept. Remember that from a withered tree, a flower blooms. Simple living is consolation. Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. The tighter you squeeze, the less you have. No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place. Only when you can be extremely pliable and soft can you be extremely hard and strong. Knock on the sky and listen to the sound. When you try to stay on the surface of the water, you sink; but when you try to sink, you float. Sit, walk, or run, but don't wobble. Live your life. Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself. The Heart Sutra - A musical rendition by Imee Ooi with words in Sanskrit Wendy Mason is a life

Are you feeling stuck in the maze?

Are you feeling stuck in the maze? When I talk to new life coaching clients the most common words I hear are;  “Can you help please? I feel stuck". It usually makes me think of someone lost in a maze surrounded by high hedges with no idea how to go forward or back. And sadly most have forgotten exactly how they got here. They are well and truly stuck. It doesn’t feel good to be stuck in a maze where all paths seem to lead nowhere. Of course, it is an illusion. There is a way to the centre and back again out into the wider world if you can get up high enough to see or you have a map. And that is I suppose what working with a life coach is about.  Finding a way to get up high, taking the broader perspective, or at least a different one, working out where you want to be in the big wide world and making a plan. Climbing that ladder or getting into the helicopter on your own can be frightening.  You need confidence to do it.  And when you have been st
