The AEQ breathing program revealed many things, and I feel it still has much to uncover.
I perform the exercises with caution for two or three days because mainly sad things reveal themselves to me. After the exercises, tears flow until I come to my senses the next day. Now that my children and I are always together, I wouldn’t like to keep being sad and in a bad mood when with them.
It’s very intimate, and I try to stay away from others.
But I started to share some events in bits and pieces, and at least my daughter and husband now understand my moods better.
In general, it seems to me that the biggest difference is in communication and appearance towards others. Above all, I say my views out loud and point out things that do not seem correct or sensible to me. I often relate to some past events with similar dynamics and feel the charge diminishing. It is also interesting that other family members react differently. It seems to me that we are all learning.
I would also like to mention the conversation you helped me prepare for – it exceeded expectations. And the interlocutor also changed his tone toward me. He became more respectful and willing to listen to my side of the situation. He took my suggestions into account and did not force me with ideas that I had previously rejected.
I am now working on communicating the things that matter so that they are heard, as they should be.
But I remember with great pleasure some details from the program, your reactions, the way you explained things, your tolerance, and your insistence that we are the ones who will move things. That even through the screen, you manage to capture the way in which someone will better understand what is being said. My pedagogic side doesn’t let me rest, and I continually connect what I see and hear with my work as well. I think you are an excellent teacher!
Now my husband also listens to your advice, and we talk a lot about exercises and accompanying changes and discoveries. I find it interesting how very different all three of us understand exercises and procedures. Everyone reacts in their own way, but as a family, together with the boys, we act much more carefully and harmoniously.
With kind regards,
