Re: 'moments of meeting'

What do you think of discussing these moments, particularly when they have been the non-verbal kinds of meeting? I'm still struggling with that a bit. I know that all things converted to words are thus revised, but in making meaning from the moment, I think there is such a strong pull to capture them - and I do this with words.

I'm finding that giving myself up to the feelings results in surprises during sessions. Last Thursday I was clearly feeling young and my therapist asked if he could just talk to this part. I said yes, and no. And then let go and we had an intense discussion from that part about how scary it was to come off the ceiling (not dissociate) and feel what was happening in order to try to gain power over it. It is easier to remain dissociated away from the body memories, but impossible to take action in that state. Ug- it was very hard. But it wouldn't have happened without some merging, borrowing his strength and him feeling what I was feeling (the fear)in the moment.

I think we were both exhausted at the end. But he looked pleased. Do you ask your therapist if he feels good or is pleased?
