Inner listening is a receptive state which requires an inner quiet with which to hear intuition and emotion. In this state, feelings which have been denied expression are encouraged to surface. Denied feelings are allowed the opportunity for full expression without blocking or judgement. It is important not to label or apply past beliefs upon any surfacing emotions. By placing a label upon a sensation or occurrence, it imposes a past belief that may not be applicable in the present. This can stagnate the process of healing by keeping something confined to an imposed belief
