Comments on: Revealing Ourselves: The Art of Self-Disclosure http://marthabeck.com/2012/03/revealing-ourselves/ Creating Your Right Life - inspiration & tools for empowered living Thu, 18 Sep 2014 17:22:53 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.2 By: Kate http://marthabeck.com/2012/03/revealing-ourselves/#comment-2420 Thu, 20 Mar 2014 10:09:34 +0000 http://marthabeck.com/?p=5216#comment-2420 Choosing people to share that body-emotion thing with strikes me as a major exercise in (to steal the name of a ’50′s game show) “Who Do You Trust?” That in itself could be a reason to do it. I do wonder what my body might show that I don’t know about.

As a musician and writer, that last is part of me at a basic level. I certainly know what you mean about the gift of Herr Bach’s nonverbal discourses.

But I have to disagree about that painting. Anything called “The Scream” should convey horror or pain. But despite the fact that a resources group for trigeminal neuralgia uses the image as a symbol of pain (see http://www.facial-neuralgia.org/default.htm), all I can see when I look at that painting is a mime expressing surprise. Okay, I’m a philistine.

I fumble, a lot. Your article was so insightful. It never dawned on me there was an alternative to releasing my true self. Thank you for sharing the concept of Self-Disclosure. You’ve definitely gained a new follower.

I am a pretty verbal person, but sometimes I have emotions or feelings that have more physical or visceral descriptions than words could convey. Thank you.

Thanks Martha…I’m a pigeon but not just any old pigeon…you got to get to know me better :-)

Today, I still find myself editing my words depending on who I am talking to..
However, this information is a good reminder and good affirmation of who I was!

I’ll do this exercise with my students. Thank you.

Its good to get a balance of outlook. I met one of my former social care team today and it is clear my efforts to grasp new thinking is paying and being healed and born again must be the greatest thing in the world..things will happen that the mind needent make sense of..and thats allright.

With her smarts, wit & humor–not to mention her own personal experiences she shares so freely–I feel compelled to follow my own North Star & become the Wayfinder maybe I was meant to be?

I am a writer and thanks to you I am in counseling to unblock my creativity. I look forward to your next book and one day, the opportunity to attend one of your seminars.
