***A technique that I have used many a time is known by the acronym, RAIN. It is simple in its recall, but its application is one that must be practised again and again (like Yoga) - but the pay off is well worth it, I assure you. It takes a brave soul to make the journey inward...
***RAIN is taken from the tradition of Kriya Yoga - the practise of internal action. It helps one to stand in the fire of their own emotions; to burn up the impurities of one's past experiences, behavioural patterns and most of all the conditioning that happens as a result. Maybe it could work for you? But, don't take my word for any of this - try it for yourself and see if it works for you (or not :) ) So, here it is...
RECOGNIZE - Recognize what's happening right now. Recognize that yes, I am having an uncomfortable experience (whether you can name it or not, matters not).
ACCEPT - Accept that yes, I am having this experience - an uncomfortable one (whether you name it or not, still does not matter). Accept that yes, I am somewhere in the fear body at this moment without trying to change anything. Just accepting and acknowledging that yes, this feeling and moment, too, shall pass.
INVESTIGATE - Investigate further if you haven't recognized or accepted what you are feeling or experiencing. Investigate what this fear might be about?
NON - ATTACHMENT - Create a non- attachment to it. Try not to attach yourself to the concept of "I'' as having the experience. According to Yogic Philosophy, there is no permanent sense self that remains solidified indefinately, we are constantly changing; evolving. This falls in line with the law of impermanence with governs our very existance. Thoughts are just the same-- impermanent, and so must come and go; arise and fall. Our thoughts do not make up who we are!
