I can become nervous in social situation where there seems to be something at stake. When in a social situation like a party where I could meet someone I can become unraveled. I loose fun, inspiring Colby and become serious, judgmental and hide.
When people feel nervous in a social situation they feel as if they are backed into a corner even if they is no corner. My monster whispers to me. I become insecure and no longer act with the resources of my age.
As a healer when people get back into a corner I see their field loosing integrity. There field flattens, spreads out- literally these people are “all over the place” because they are “all over the place”.
One thing that I know that has helped me to hold my filed together in moments of nervousness is to remind myself of my age. This does not limit me, but reminds me that I am an adult man. I am not 5 or 12 years old. I have seen a lot, done a lot and been through a lot. I remind myself of my age and come out of my past and reenter the moment with the resource of a man my age.
Next time your feel back into a corner, remind yourslef of your age, “I am X years old.” Doing this can bring you into the moment and back into your body.
