  1. Hello all, My previous attempts at letting go and allowing emotions to pass almost always result in suppression. Example: I would get mildly annoyed at something at my mother would ask of me and instead of my usual outburst and gruffness I would attempt to change my response to the situation by changing my behaviour. The result was always that several minutes later I would be even more angry than before. Example 2: Sensitivity to noise. In the lying meditations, there are many examples of "letting a sound pass through the body and not leaving a trace" yet my attempts to do so result in an even stronger response than if I completely ignored the instruction. I currently have hyper sensitivity to noise when attempting to sleep and any medium loud sound will provoke an anxiety response in my body which makes it incredibly difficult to sleep. My current strategy is to distract myself enough with one of the recorded lying meditations to cause me to fall asleep so that the anxiety response is temporary rather than recurring through the night. Having tried allowing and letting go and being not only unsuccessful but even negative, I guess the first step would be how do I recognise that I'm suppressing? Then the next step would be, how do I actually let go? Sai
