Spinning feelings is a set of simple, quick and efficient techniques that can be used to deal with a wide range of personal issues. There are some variants, but I’ll focus one I like and have used a lot. The basic idea is this. You focus your attention on a feeling in the body, discover how it rotates, then pretend to move it out of the body, switch the direction of the rotation and finally put it back in the same place again. The point with this trick is that the feeling cannot be entirely still – it must move in some way or it would attenuate. But since it can’t rotate in two opposite directions at once, the old pattern is interrupted and the feeling disappears.
I’m not entirely sure who came up with this idea to begin with, but I’ve seen descriptions in similar terms in various places. Although it may have older roots, I first learned it from a video taped seminar with Richard Bandler. The other parts and details in the description below are mostly what I’ve arrived at from my own experience. So the following is a step by step description of the method I’ve used.
