To rest deeply requires trust – trust in what holds us, which allows us to yield. Many of us describe feeling tired all the time, yet we have difficulty allowing ourselves to let go, to accept support, and to rest. In sensing, we bring attention to what is resisting the letting go. By bringing gentle attention to what is happening, we can feel what wants to let go, and get to know what is holding back. Instead of distracting from fears and tightness, we become friendly with our own holding back, and only then can we begin to feel the support under us and the possibility of releasing.
