Releasing a Backpack Full of Emotions

Click here to listen.

Often we carry our emotions like a heavy load, weighing us own with each step we take on our path. This guided visualization invites you to find a safe and sacred place and shrug off your backpack full of pains, negativity and woes. By looking into the backpack you can pull out an object which represents an emotion that you are carrying. By examining this symbolic object, you can then decide whether you are ready to release it – or even give it back to the individual who first put it on you. The idea is to see if you can choose to let go of burdens, or if you still choose to carry them. Either way, this visualization will give you insight into your relationship to your negative emotions.
