The Most Damaging Human Emotions

Tags : 

Everything that you are destined to become comes from your energy. An energy field that is clouded with anger, resentment, fear and guilt blocks wellness in the body.

In my work as an Intuitive Counselor, I see people facing serious health problems who have not been able to heal past hurts from their mind and spirit. The solution for many of them is the wonderful and frequently misunderstood practice of forgiveness.

One of the most surprisingly effective tools I refer to my clients is a book and website entitled Radical Forgiveness by Colin Tipping. The website features a worksheet that  allows you to fully describe the emotional hurt which is present in your life. Removing that pain opens the doorway for your body to maintain perfect health.

Many clients start with one conflict or issue that has not been resolved and will move on to include past hurts that still generates pain or upset in their life.

One female client no sooner did a worksheet surrounding a year old conflict with a girlfriend, when the person called a week later. Working through her anger before the friend’s call was significant, because the other individual was still hurt and upset. My client was all smiles as she described her ability to transcend the experience and to offer peace and understanding about her friend’s held emotion without judgment.

The power of forgiveness is often overlooked in the health problems that are present in a person’s body. I’d like to look at what forgiveness is, as well as what it is not:

1.  Forgiveness is not pardoning unacceptable behavior. If someone has hurt you repeatedly, then you are not expected to condone their actions.

2.  Forgiveness is not putting a smiley face on something that still hurts. To work at this level you must be willing to accept and desire freedom from the pain attached to the situation.

3.  Forgiveness does not require you to be friends with someone who has hurt you.

4.  Forgiveness is not an excuse for feeling superior to the person you have forgiven.

5.  Forgiveness is not an opportunity to get someone else to change.

6.  Forgiveness has nothing to do with the other person, it’s for you and only you.

Skyrocketing medical costs and the risk of disease are two reasons to examine the emotional hurts you may be holding onto. When we clean up the emotional garbage in our lives it frees us from pain that will often lead to the manifestation of disease.

Surving the Holidays with Emotional Pain

Tags : 

My grandmother used to say, “The holidays come and go and take a lot of people with them.”

For a long time, I used to think those were “just words,” until the keen insight this statement revealed about our life experiences struck me personally.

One of my biggest life lessons happened eight years ago, when my dad passed very suddenly just fifteen days before Christmas. My mom’s phone call alerting me of his death is still etched in my heart and mind. From time to time, the memory resurfaces triggered by a variety of sensory experiences that we all get exposed to in our everyday life.

We all know the cardinal rule: we are born and one day we will die. If this happens during the holiday season, we must work to expand our consciousness, by choosing to grow through the pain of loss.

Everything that is happening to us is being absorbed on both the conscious and subconscious levels. When we become aware of all the many levels in life it helps us better understand the grieving process. Knowing what triggers our depression, or emotional pain, gives us the ability to become more powerful in our lives.

For many people, the holidays can be extremely painful as we remember not only those we have lost, but also how the life we may have wished for didn’t turn out.

We must remember that we live in a free-will planet and you must decide to either be a volunteer or a draftee in dealing with whatever pain you are facing. When you choose to be a volunteer you become open and receptive to the growth an experience offers. As a draftee, many people go through pain, literally, kicking and screaming, not wanting to change or even accept circumstances they cannot control.

Celine Dion’s song, Because You Loved Me, still connects with the inner layer of pain around my heart concerning my dad’s death. That song played at his funeral, and hearing it some eight years later, can still throw me into emotional pain if I am not extremely careful.

Once while donating blood, the song was playing in a room filled with volunteers like me who were hooked up to IVs. The technician monitoring my blood withdrawal looked shocked when she saw I was softly crying. Knowing about the emotional trigger of this song, gave me the insight to not only accept, but even acknowledge, the process to her. I made a conscious choice to relax and decided that my giving blood at this time was no accident, it reminded me of one of God’s greatest gifts—our ability to give and receive love.
