The Portal To Your Inner World is a self-awareness/self-help book. The self-awareness aspect describes what is going on inside us when we have extreme emotions, feelings, and thinking that leads to disruptive and self-defeating behavior. The self-help aspect describes a process to change and eliminate disruptive emotions, thinking, and behaviors. This process is called Stored Feelings Reintegration and will be referred to as SFR throughout the book.
The self-help approach is not to talk our self into changing our thoughts. It’s about, even requires, a different way of looking at what happens inside our body and mind when our emotions are causing us problems. The author leads us through this change of perspective and introduces us to an inward pathway which enables our emotions, mind, and body to come together for positive change.
When we have an excessive emotional reaction, our bodies are animated with heightened energies. These charged emotional energies influence our thinking and push us toward extreme ideas and judgements. These energies are usually directed toward addressing our outer circumstances; however, unbeknownst to us, they also create a portal leading to our inner world.
The journey through the portal leads us on a path where we discover amazing truths about our selves. We find that each source of excessive emotional energy, a Stored Feeling, has its own ego. We have many such Stored Feelings and corresponding egos. The journey identifies specific Stored Feelings and their egos. At the end of the journey, the Stored Feelings are reintegrated and the egos are dissolved, leaving us free to go beyond self-serving to inner peace, transformation, and the expression of the core or true self.
