To answer to this question, answer to this one before; Why are looking for something outside, when you can find it inside?

When you find everything you need with yourself, you can be with someone wonderful and it's perfect, and this person can go and it doesn't matter.

Quebec is a great place to live. I'm not from Quebec, I moved there to study, but I don't want to come back where I come from Smiley

I didn't have time to visit Pennsylvania because I went there for the seminar and I came back the day after, but people there was great!

I found a book where I read somewhat what I am talking about, but clearer ( or more clear, I don't know how you say that in English).

I give you the most important of the teaching;

Quote
The Transmutation Technique

First step (inner contact): Refresh your memory of the emotion and the situation linked to it. Take a deep breath and feel this emotion without limitation. It is in your belly, within you, and you can feel it more and more. Do not amplify it from your normal stance as the victim of this emotion. Instead, listen to it, feel whatever it brings up for you, taste its flavor, accept its shape and form and how it defines itself (even if that is different than how you were defining it), contemplate it, and hold it within you. Be at peace and relive the emotion for a few breaths, up to one full minute. Be at peace. Later in your training you may perform this with some more powerful emotions. For now, just enjoy peacefully contemplating the positive change you just made.

Rarely, you may feel the need to express an emotion outwardly, in order to release some pressure that seems to be building up. On those rare occasions, (and this is not to be done frequently), simply release what you need to let go of, but never lose control over this experiment. When you are just learning these techniques, it is too easy to revert to victim stance, and to begin amplifying how terrible the situation is. Remember that you are practicing just becoming aware of the emotion. When you are unable to bear the intensity of an emotion, you may release some of the pressure; then just continue on with the process. It is obviously not the goal to keep this emotion trapped inside of you, or buried; rather it is the goal of this exercise to release the hold you have on it. Thus it is perfectly fine to perform the process while expressing some normal human emotion. Simply keep track of the experiment without losing your grip on the process. Breathe into your abdomen throughout the entire
process. Do not breathe from your upper torso. Hold the situation that caused the emotion in your mind while you feel the emotion.

Second step (integration): Get inside the emotion and follow wherever it leads you. Breathe deeply and comfortably. As the air flows into your abdomen, your task, as consciousness, is to penetrate the emotion and let it absorb you. Be aware of all the feelings that entering this emotion evokes for you, whether you feel pain or emptiness, coldness or heat, anger or sadness. Get inside of it and become it. The process of Integration requires a conscious fusion of you and the emotion. You are going to allow yourself to be enveloped within the emotion; to be integrated into it. For a few minutes, breathe and accept, breathe and become, breath and feel. Follow the path this emotion leads you on, and you will notice that most of the time, the emotion will be covering another emotion that is buried beneath it.

Every emotion arises into our consciousness because it is linked with some human experience. Use your mind to follow these experiences from the past so that you can remember what happened. You might run thru a few events (while following your emotions), until you come to the first time in your life that you felt that emotion. Stay focused. Do not jump from one thread to another; trace one experience to its root cause, following one thread at a time. As you allow the emotions to exist, without avoiding them or rejecting them, the emotion is freed up, and the
energy associated with it ceases to be trapped; the emotion is alive again, emancipated. When you stop blocking it and permit it to BE, your consciousness can understand the profound essence of that emotion.

The first step is to accept what you feel. There is only one thing you have to do; observe. When we become aware of our suffering, it dissolves into the consciousness.
Don't change anything to your situation, it's perfect, just observe how you feel in your guts.
You can know in your mental that you feel rejected, it's not enough because your soul wants to live this emotion, and emotion aren't in the mind.

Sit and observe. Take long and deep breath in your emotion and free yourself of it. Allow you to come back in the happiness.

After that, try to understand with your mind why you lived this situation and what could you do to not live it again in the futur.

Hi! I speak French, but I will to my best to be understandable.
I spent most of my time to observe myself and I really love introspection. I enjoy consciousness and I hope we will share our knowledge.

Thank you
