Projector 5/1 Large Split

#5 The Intense Impact of the Abstract Emotional Wave – The Stream of Feeling & Navigating Disappointment with Allyson Forseth

In this episode I’m joined by Allyson, a 5/1 emotional split definition Projector to talk all things Stream of Feeling and the abstract/collective emotional wave. We discuss how differently this wave shows up in our lives based on our definition. Allyson, with the root to solar plexus channel and the hanging 35, shares how visceral she feels her authority and how she needs time to process, and the pressure to build, before being able to express. I share how sometimes my emotions come out of my mouth before I am fully aware of it, with the manifested solar plexus to throat channel and the hanging 41. We discuss the polarity in the high and the low of the wave, the nervousness in the peak as you await the experience of “bottoming out” and hitting the low. We share how we deal with feeling stuck, heavy and almost unrecognisable at the low of the wave. We talk about the shame of being emotional, or not emotional. We also share the humour in what it means to be human and how laughter lessens the blow of the incredible polarity in the experience of this wave. Finally, Allyson shares her advice for living and loving the abstract emotional wave.
