10 Practices to Release Emotional Pain

It helps to understand the basics of how the practice of releasing pain works.  I have listed some basic guidelines upon which you can build, below.

  • Releasing emotional and mental pain is connected to releasing any toxic situation in the body — you can link your physical cleansing to your energetic cleansing.
  • Behaviors that support a healthy body will also support a healthy emotional body, mental body, and spiritual body. This includes healthy eating, exercise, as well as good hygiene practices.

Healing Relationship Blocks

Everyone has experienced the loneliness and frustration of not being in a relationship but wanting to be in one. Sometimes when we are single, we believe that we will never find a perfect lover/partner again. The prospect of finding our mate can feel so daunting – so, for all of you looking for your lover, this is for you!

Build Your Inner Reservoir of Strength

Many people come to me because they want to change something big – about themselves or something in their life, or something in the people around them.

I have had people that wanted to figure out how to guarantee that their mate would never leave them, or that their children would always be happy and healthy, or that they would most assuredly get the promotion they want, or that they would suddenly get wealthy.

While we all have a certain amount of control of our destiny, the truth is that it is somewhat of an illusion and somewhat temporary.

The experience of devastation by tornados in Joplin, Missouri recently is a reminder to all of us of that fact. We cannot control the weather, freak accidents, or time. We cannot control another person’s desires or destiny. And, we cannot physically live forever.

There was a very brave and courageous man that talked on national TV about losing both of his sons in the Joplin tornado. Most of us could imagine the pure and unadulterated pain and devastation this man must be going through. But, despite this pain, he was driven to share his experience, he was willing to cry on camera, he was willing to connect deeply with all of us in his time of need. I was amazed at his strength and touched by his candor.

It is a very intense and sensitive discussion. How can one build an inner fortitude without it looking like suppression and denial? How can one face pain in a powerful way, without belittling it? How can we let go of believing that we can control our lives without letting go of our responsibility to do the best we can at creating a fulfilled life? How can we fully understand the tragedies that can occur without succumbing to any feelings of hopelessness?

It is getting the answers to these questions that give us the power to flourish in uncertainty and build a foundation that can support of through life’s curveballs.

I once had a student that believed beyond a shadow of a doubt that God was angry at him if it was raining on his day off work. While a part of him understood that was irrational, a part of him still believed it. I could not teach him how to control the rain. But, I could help teach him acceptance, surrender, and compassion for himself when he couldn’t seem to accept circumstances. I could even share with him different perspectives of how to look at his circumstances. I could also show him how to heal the parts of him that felt so betrayed.

Everyone has places they feel pain. Past experiences they flinch at. Pieces of the future they fear. And, everyone can heal. Everyone can love. Everyone can shine!

My heart and love and prayers go out to everyone in Joplin, Mo.

My heart and love and prayers go out to you!

Your very own happiness, gives others around you permission to experience their happiness. This is a fundamental truth of healers.

Forgiving Without Forgetting

Do you have memories of moments in your past that you feel ashamed of or embarrassed by? Perhaps you felt manipulated, or pressured, or bullied to do something you would not normally have done? Do any of these memories still cause you to cringe or feel bad?

More on Empaths & Touch

In another post we talked about eye contact and about being empathetic. Today, I would like to discuss touch.

The touch I am speaking of is a touch on the shoulder – a pat on the back or a hug. You get it!

We all know that human touch can be very healing, nurturing and is vital for our emotional and physical health and well-being.
