Most of us fear change

Most of us fear change, yet without change we never evolve. Our inner feelings, or more specifically, the sensations within us are often feared too. This fear is what keeps us from being willing to change. When we allow our sensations to be felt and to evolve, we find greater and greater balance. The more we apply this approach to our lives the more we become happy and whole. ~Alain & Jody Herriott.

Each moment is unique

Each moment is unique and linked through sensation. Many think of these sensations as fraught with discord and concern. What if instead, they are the arrows pointing us toward the walls of resistance in our minds and because they are felt, they are also the entry point to change. Through feeling and allowing the sensations to change we unwind and arrive at harmony and balance.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Constant change

We are in a state of constant change. Our inherent nature is to both run towards and yet resist change. While change is always with us, we can be in a space of balance, wholeness and peace. This peace is not stagnant, it is a dynamic integration where Being is experienced. All it takes is the willingness to feel the subtle nuances within us, allow them to unfold and the rest is simply there. Being only needs the willingness to feel.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Sensation and experience

Sensation, what is it? It is that subtle experience inside us that leads many thoughts and associations within us. Often, sensations are repressed because they lead to emotions that are uncomfortable. However, if they are allowed to surface and pass through without comment from the mind they are balancing and nurturing. Allow your sensations to surface and be experienced and presence simply is there.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The Quiet Mind

When our mind is quiet, we are in harmony in our world; nothing is pushing us.  When our mind is quiet there is no conflict to push us out of balance, things arise and we deal with them, things end and we are equally at peace.  Feeling the sensations that are inside us, allowing ourselves to gently feel them allows them to change, unwind and find a new balance.  This unwinding again leads to the quiet mind.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Simplicity, balance, compassion

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and in thoughts, you return to the source of being.  From the Tao te Ching # 67

When we choose to be balanced in ourselves these three things are simply present.  We act, we see the ease and rightness of our action and everything unfolds in perfection. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

The gentlest thing

Number 43 of the Tao te Ching says:  The gentlest thing in the world overcomes the hardest thing in the world.  That which has no substance enters where there is no space. This shows the value of non-action. When we as individuals choose a softer path, often referred to as a Yin or more feminine approach to situations, conflict and life in general.  We listen, and we act from a place of balance.  Feeling, the gentle sensations within us naturally produces this kind of experience.  Choose to feel it is safe and leads to harmony in one’s life.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Define self through others

Most people define themselves by what others think of them.  What if instead they felt the sensations within themselves, used any technique that fostered self awareness and chose to feel who they are vs what they believe other people want from them.  In our experience better balance is had for both the individual and those they are around.  Presence is usually experienced as a relative sense of balance and harmony when one is around someone who practices presence.  We encourage you to be you.  Balance naturally springs from this way of living.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Listening to our self talk

So much of our life is spent in listening to our self talk and believing it.  It’s not that what it is saying is good or bad, it’s that it never stops, no rest.  That is what drives us nuts.  In order to bridge the gap between the overactive mind and a harmonious state, we simply feel the sensations within us that are always there.  Feeling our feelings vs simply talking about them brings us into “presence” and balance in our lives. ~Alain & Jody Herriott

Living in resistance

Most of us are living a life of resistance. We resist certain thoughts, people and memories. In The Wonder Method, these resistances become opportunities. Once we are aware we are resisting something we have the option to feel that sensation as oppposed to pushing it away. The act of feeling the sensations also makes it possible for those sensations to change and evolve, reducing our reaction to the original trigger. As TWM is applied the resistance gradually drops away (often a matter of minutes) and balance is the result. This approach is always available, it is simply a choice to feel or resist.  Enjoy ~Alain & Jody Herriott
