Take a look at the list and allow yourself a few long deep breaths. On a different piece of paper make a list of what you are willing to work on in the near future.
Remember to keep breathing. We tend to hold our breath when we are stressed.
Pick one item on the list that you are willing to look at deeply, and write everything down that you feel about it. I can hear you groaning now. Yes how you feel about it.
Pick a piece of music that embodies that feeling. Choose a piece of music that is a little up beat and the last one should be a lot of fun.
If possible put all the music on so that it will play one right after another but if you have to physically change it, it is alright.
Put the feeling music on first and allow yourself to move and feel to the music. Make sure you have tissue near by in case you need it. When you are finished immediately begin moving to the next song, allowing the feelings to slowly melt away. With the last song, really let loose and allow yourself to rejoice in yourself, in your day, in your life.
Take the first and last piece of paper and burn it safely. The second paper keep for yourself and choose one new item a day or a week and go through the steps above from writing everything about it and then dancing it out. Yes I know this isn't going to change everything but it will help you shift the energy of it to allow you to do what is needed to clear it from your life.
