Ground your empathetic feelings in the contrasts: Creativity/Reason, Significance/Isolation, Body/Exposure, and Comfort/Protection.
Empathy, Contrasts I
Empathy is the key to collaboration and understanding. There are different kinds of understanding so there must be different kinds of empathy. The goal of this self-hypnosis visualization is to create empathy.
“Contrasts I” is a self-hypnosis induction that asks you to build feelings around the contrast between these word pairs:
Creativity <—> Reason
Significance <—> Isolation
Body <—> Exposure
Comfort <—> Protection
The greater your skill at evoking your feelings, the greater will be your ability to empathize in situations of these kinds.
