What to do with Discomfort

on April 25, 2016

Whenever you feel discomfort – whenever you have the slightest thought you wish something “out there” in your present experience would change, run this process:

1. Remind yourself it isn’t real

2. Dive right smack into the middle of it

3. Feel the “discomfort energy” fully

4. When it reaches a peak, call it what it is and tell the truth about it

5. Reclaim your power from the creation

6. Express appreciation

1. Remind yourself it isn’t real. Remember that you are immersed in a hologram, and by definition a hologram is not real. You only make it real if you assign it the power to be real and give it control over you.

2. Dive right smack into the middle of it. This is the opposite of what we normally did in the first half of the Human Game. Whenever we would meet something “out there” that made us uncomfortable – pain and suffering, for example – we would try to get away from it, resist it, suppress it, change it, ignore it, drug it, deny it, hide from it, escape it, or otherwise make it go away. Instead embrace it fully, see it in all its glory, invite it closer and get yourself into the middle of it as completely as possible.

3. Feel the “discomfort energy” fully. Rather than rushing through the Process as soon as you feel the least little discomfort, let it build as much as possible. There’s a very simple reason for this. What we want to do next is “reclaim the power” we assigned “out there” in these holograms. In many cases, we have “given” a lot of power away to certain people, places, and things that resulted in our feeling less than joyful. In fact, it may take more than one experience in the second half of the Human Game to switch off the power flow.

4. When it reaches a peak, call it what it is and tell the truth about it. When the discomfort has become as much as you can stand at that moment, it’s time to honestly assess the situation and look for your judgments, beliefs, and opinions. For example, is there someone or something in this experience you think is “wrong” or “bad” and should change or be different than it is? Who or what, specifically? And is that true? Is there a belief you hold causing the discomfort? Exactly what is it? And is it true? Did you form an opinion that is now causing you discomfort in this experience? What is it, and is it really true? One of the things you don’t ask is “Why” this experience is happening to you. That is a distraction with no relevance and will keep you from focusing on what does matter. As the experiences in your cocoon continue, you might start to see patterns in your life that revolve around certain key judgments and beliefs and opinions. You can expect to have similar holograms appear that give you the opportunity to follow those patterns, perhaps back to the first time you formed that judgment, or adopted that belief, or created that opinion. So “calling it what it is” means acknowledging and owning up to the fact that your discomfort is based on the judgments, beliefs, and opinions you formed as a reaction or response to this situation. The “truth about it” is that no one and nothing “out there” is going to change to make you happier. You’re the one who’s going to have to change your reactions and responses to your experiences; you’re the one who’s going to have to take 100% responsibility for how you feel and your condition in life; you’re the one who jumped into this uncomfortable hole, rather than being pushed or forced or tricked into it. The “truth about it” is that no one can ever be a victim of anyone or anything at any time in any experience; likewise, there are no unwanted perpetrators. As long as you feel like you’re a victim, you have assigned power “out there” that isn’t real. The “truth about it” is that you have no power to change the experience or anyone or anything “out there.” The only power you have as a Player is using your free will to change the way you react and respond to the holographic experiences created for you by your Infinite I.

5. Reclaim your power from the creation. “Reclaim” is Robert’s word, and I think it can be a little misleading. A Player has no power; we didn’t create the hologram to begin with. We definitely made the hologram real by assigning it power, but the power we assigned was as imaginary as the hologram itself. “Reclaiming your power” also suggests that when you have finished with the Process, you will have more power than before you started, by taking the power back you had assigned to the hologram “out there.” This is also not true. What I prefer to say is that you disconnect or turn off the power you assigned to the hologram, like pulling the plug or turning off a light switch. It was your judgments, beliefs, and opinions that provided the power in the first place. Think of it this way…

In the first half of the Human Game, you entered a holographic experience and flipped a switch that lit it up and made it appear real. It’s still there, fully illuminated, when you re-visit it in the second half – which is helpful, because you need it as bright as possible to clearly see the judgments, beliefs, and opinions that were your reactions and responses, and which became part of your false self, the personality construct, the ego you have been thinking is you.

When you have finished processing that hologram, you simply unplug the power source or turn the light switch off. In the beginning, it helped to visualize myself doing that.

6. Express appreciation. Expressing appreciation is perhaps the most important step. Even if you don’t “like” the experience you are having, do whatever possible (“fake it until you make it”) to express appreciation to your Infinite I for the experience – and especially thanks and appreciation to the person, place, or thing that was causing you the discomfort. After all, your Infinite I has just given you the gift of showing you where you assigned power “out there” in the past, and that’s worthy of some appreciation; and the people, places, or things that caused your discomfort have given you the gift of expertly playing a role in your holographic movie to assist you in your process of becoming a butterfly – definitely worthy of appreciation.

Realize this may be difficult in the beginning; but in fact, you may soon be wanting other people, places, or things who make you feel less than totally joyful to show up in your holograms as much and as often as they can, just so you can see where you’ve assigned power “out there” and “reclaim” it. When you keep doing this Process, you will eventually come to sincerely and completely appreciate each and every experience you have had, and all the people, places and things in it for the absolute perfection they represent.
