Yesterday I used the basic Logosynthesis process when I could not stop thinking about a slightly uncomfortable encounter I had earlier in the day.
I had been judging my own actions about both protecting and not protecting my own boundaries.
The process worked and I didn’t give the encounter another thought until this morning when I was in the car with my husband, returning to the place where the encounter occurred. Then I started obsessing about it again.
Jonathan is also a Master Logosynthesis Practitioner and I shared my story with him. We searched for what was still undone, couldn’t find anything, and I realized that the difference was that the entire issue was no longer a secret. Sharing it was what had been left out and was now complete.
Later I was reminded of a Brené Brown technique of sharing old feelings of shame with a “shame-buddy” as part of a process to resolve them. I wondered if my experience was similar to this process. Once I shared something after my initial work, it vanished.
Logosynthesis can certainly be used alone as a self-coaching technique. However, it was originally developed as a tool a therapist could use. I think that it may be important to use it with a “buddy” when a problem isn’t easily resolved.
