Have you ever had that feeling that there is something you almost know? It can be a sense of having forgotten something…… “the keys!”, a sense of possibility almost grasped….but too vague to act on, a longing without a name. Something in you knows that things are not what they should be, or could be, and alerts you to this, if only you knew how to make sense of it.
Eugene Gendlin called this a “felt sense” an inner way of knowing which seems to go beyond what we can name in any specific moment. We feel that we’re not quite ready to make that decision, but we’re not sure why. We know that there is something we are not quite catching in a situation we are trying to resolve, but it seems vague and unclear. We have a sense of being stuck in some area of our lives, but we’re not quite sure how to get “unstuck” so that we can move on.
Some people attend to this inner knowing quite easily, for others, it is more difficult but, Gendlin maintained that accessing our inner knowing is a skill which can be learned. He called the process “focusing” and demonstrated that learning and developing this skill allows us to act more mindfully in our day-to-day lives, with greater clarity and a stronger sense of purpose.
