This may not work for you at all. I used to get "stuck" feelings (I like that description, Anja)... I put it down to always being up in my head. Very daydreamy, always thinking about something. It lead to being extremely disconnected from my own body. I could go whole days without eating etc. I felt a little dereal.
Anyway, I read some interesting tips for Enneagram type 5s and type 9s and put into practice the part about staying in touch with your physicality. Hard physical exercise develops your appetites and ability to experience your emotions for some reason. Worked for me.
Enneagram Type 9, Personal Growth
Enneagram Type 5, Personal Growth.- Exercise frequently to become more aware of your body and emotions. (Some Nines run around doing errands and think that they are getting enough exercise.) Regular exercise is a healthy form of self-discipline and will increase your awareness of your feelings and other sensations. Developing body-awareness will help teach you to concentrate and focus your attention in other areas of your life as well. Exercise is also a good way to get in touch with and express some aggressions.
I found that only pretty "sweaty" types of exercise worked for me though, not yoga.- Learn to notice when your thinking and speculating takes you out of the immediacy of your experience. Your mental capacities can be an extraordinary gift, but can also be a trap when you use them to retreat from contact with yourself and others. Stay connected with your physicality.
- You tend to be extremely intense and so high-strung that you find it difficult to relax and unwind. Make an effort to learn to calm down in a healthy way, without drugs or alcohol. Exercising or using biofeedback techniques will help channel some of your tremendous nervous energy. Meditation, jogging, yoga, and dancing are especially helpful for your type.
