An NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programing) technique that can assist in the transformation of emotions...
Take a moment and conjure an image in your mind's eye of a specific moment in your life when you experienced a profound feeling of joyful delight. Make sure that this memory is something you really enjoy thinking about and that just by recalling it, it makes you feel so good.
Make sure that you see what you saw; the colours, the shapes, the forms. And then observe where the image of this memory appears in your inner vision/mind's eye. Then pay attention to how it makes you feel right now, here in the present moment.
Then pull this image of that delightful memory closer to you and make it become bigger, brighter, clearer, more luminescent and colourful. Then pay attention to how this makes you feel right now. Notice how this makes the feeling grow stronger.
Now take that same inner image and this time push it away and make it grow smaller and dimmer. Push it into the distance and let it become black and white. Push it so far away that it becomes the size of a thumbnail. And again, pay attention to how this makes you feel right now. Notice how this makes the feeling grow weaker and less profound.
Then return this image to it's original place and marvel at the fact that you can learn to control the intensity of your own memories much like you can control a light using a sliding dimmer switch.
