Wiggle Room Podcast: Episode 55

What Can You Do When Doing The Work Brings Up Big Topics? + I Need To Have A "Why" To Say No + Let Your Emotional Part Answer The Questions

I Need To Have A Why To Say No
In this episode of the Wiggle Room Podcast, a participant describes a situation where she started to do The Work and got overwhelmed by the emotional history of the relationship involved. She asks about what to do when this happens.  Another participant does The Work on the thought, “I Need To Have A “Why” To Say No.”

You can also listen to this podcast wherever you get your podcasts. If you’re new to podcasts, here’s a review article by PCMagazine on the best podcast apps to use.

Open Session Recording

Listen to the Open Session recording as we do The Work of Byron Katie.  There is one question and one piece of inquiry in this session. The inquiry part starts with some confusion about what is the stressful thought to question and then gets quite subtle by the end.
Be a participant in Open Sessions each week to do The Work with me, participate in our discussions, or ask your questions.

Newsletter Text

In the second part of the recording, I read my article, Let Your Emotional Part Answer The Questions.  Subscribe to the newsletter to get new articles like this one each week.
