Still looking for a rational answer? It feels good, but I need to know why? C’mon, just put that mind away for a bit. Enjoy without description.
An affective (feeling) of a growth experience is an experience that can’t be cognitised but is felt nonetheless. Feeling lighter, feeling more spacious, feeling just a bit more well?
A wonderful quote from Carl Rogers from a client at the end of counselling:
“I can’t tell just exactly what’s happened. It’s just that I felt that I exposed something, shook it up and turned it around; and when I put it back it felt better. It’s a little frustrating because i’d like to know exactly whats going on”
(Rogers, 1961: 151)
My words, its simple, you healed a little.
