Wiggle Room Podcast: Episode 25

How To Find Specifics When Stressful Thoughts Are General + I Should Pay For It But I Don’t Want To + A Little Golden Shadow Work

I Should Pay For It But I Don't Want To

In this episode of the Wiggle Room Podcast, a participant questions the stressful thought, “I should pay for it but I don’t want to.” In fact, she questions each part of this statement separately: “I should pay for it,” and “I don’t want to.” Listen as she finds her turnarounds using The Work of Byron Katie.

Open Session Recording

In addition to The Work on “I should pay for it,” there was a good question about how to go from a general stressful thought to find something specific to work. The mind often hides in generalities. It can be helpful to find a specific instance when doing The Work.
