Ask Baba Yaga: How Can I Feel My Feelings?

Baba feelings

Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

I have lived too long distancing myself from my feelings. How do I feel them and what do I do with them?

BABA YAGA:

Yr feelings look to you as bison in the distance — -stormy, powerful, & ready to charge. )But feelings are not anything solid, to be killed or butchered & carried home. Walk towards yr bison; when you reach them, you will walk through them, as they aren’t bison at all, but clouds. You will feel the hue & mist of them, & then you will be on the other side.
