Does your Recovery go through some flat periods?
Are you curious about how you can access your own inner wisdom?
If you are an addiction counselor, would you like to feel refreshed and energized after working with a group, and have the group itself feel refreshed and energized?
Allow me to show you how to ENLIVEN RECOVERY with Felt Sensing!
My name is Suzanne Noel. I am a Certifying Focusing Coordinator for The Focusing Institute in New York. Focusing has been proven to be a process that leads to significant therapeutic change. (See www.Focusing.org). It is about going inside ourselves and waiting for the felt awareness of something to emerge. As we stay with this, it comes into Focus! We get rapid insights into things and enjoy the bodily-felt shift that comes from this.
Yes, you can easily access your own inner wisdom and move into your right way of being!
Me and my clients have found that waiting for the meaning of the 12 Steps to emerge from inside us helps us “get them” in a new, solid way. As we move into felt sensing into the Best of Recovery, we get to live it here and now! And, we discover that Recovery feels good!
Recovery Focusing helps open inner doors to Recovery.
It helps dissolve our blocks to moving forward, makes space for our feelings to reveal their next right steps, and show us how to have compassion for ourselves and others.
By connecting and relating to ourselves, others, and our Higher Power in this felt sensed way, we begin living Recovery and feeling more alive and enlightened each time.
Here is a quote from my book Loving At the Edge: Recovery Emerging:
“As I close my eyes briefly, I see Focusing as being an “essence,” like an energy, entering the Steps. I see letters begin to wiggle, move, as if the word which holds the principle of each Step is coming alive. All the letters in “Honesty” begin jiggling and playing and wanting to dance with the next Step’s principle “Faith.” They are happily dancing together, celebrating, enjoying their new aliveness, as if before they were stuck in place, sadly unable to go anywhere, alive but frozen. Focusing brings in the life blood, slowly waking up the Steps, freeing them, and eventually allowing them to merge and dissolve into all of life, no longer separate, but part of life. I feel bubbles of energy in my own chest, a welling up of movement, a deep desire to dance as well! And, life is good.”
Great spiritual masters tell us that the key to happiness lies within. As many are finding in the power of 12-Step fellowship, sharing with others is the easiest path into this inner wisdom. Recovery Focusing integrates both 12-Step principles and Focusing processing into one practice, held together by Felt Listening, thus unlocking the inner felt wisdom of each. This sharing of Listening and Focusing enhances and enlivens the journey of Recovery, which is the journey into loving.
