A great way to tune into what lies beneath is to be still.
Meditation allows you the opportunity of stillness. When the chatter in your mind quiets down, you can then listen to what comes up. It is usually your very first thought. The very first feeling. This is also your inner voice or intuition speaking to you about what wants to be heard. Meditation is the way in which you can bridge your conscious with your subconscious.
Find a comfortable place to sit where you will not be disturbed for at least 5 minutes.
Shut your eyes and take several deep breaths.
Count in as you inhale and count out as you exhale.
As the oxygen begins to flow to your brain you will naturally begin to unwind and relax.
The thoughts will slowly come in and simply notice them, and then tell them to leave.
Continue to ask your thoughts to leave until you have a moment of stillness.
Practicing this and flexing your meditation muscle will eventually create longer moments of stillness.
See what comes up. If its a feeling of anxiety or fear, ask it what it wants. Notice what answers flow in.
Thank yourself and your inner voice and open your eyes.
Practice a few times a week and write down what has come up for you. You may prefer to draw what an image if that is what came up.
Simply notice what appears…
