Exercise Tracking the Parts that Hold Feelings

As described in the exercise on tracking repetitive actions, first use the worksheet below to fill in the feelings that arose during your repetitive dialogue. Next, explore the parts that were triggered in the dialogue. What was the positive intention of each of your parts? Ask each part what it wanted for you. Repeating the question “What would I have if I got that?” will help you go through layers of the process and get closer to the core of each part’s positive intention. Then, as before, see if you can feel into your partner’s experience and imagine what his or her parts deeply wanted for him or her.
