Emotions and your health

Emotions and your health.

Today I want to blog about how important it is for us to be aware that we cannot separate our  physical health from our emotional health.  Every single feeling you have affects your body in some way and stressful and negative emotions can really impact on your physical health.

To define stress …this is anything (whether real or imagined) which is perceived as a threat or toxic to the body and how the body reacts to it.

So how does this affect us ? ….well we are all different so for some it may affect the brain chemistry and mental health, for others it affects hormonal balance, blood sugars, immune response, digestive health etc…..

As a meta health practitioner i would always consider emotions when working with physical and mental health conditions with my clients, allopathic medicine still sees physical conditions as caused by something OUTSIDE of the body …and therefore treats this as a pathogen which can be “remedied” with drugs (masking the root) or cutting a part of the body away. As our emotions (and energy but thats another blog!) cannot be seen they are not considered to be a part of the potential for disharmony…..yet ironically G.P’s often cite “You must be stressed” …..before prescribing the pill!

Although we are all different , i often find some common links between certain emotions and pain or disharmony in certain parts f the body.
Some brief examples ; (this is not conclusive just some observations from my clinical work)
~Grief – Often manifests heart issues and when doing energy clearing work i almost always work on the heart meridian and chakras.
~Depression – Often manifests pains in the chest , lungs etc.The governing meridian , lung meridians etc often help with letting go (LU1)
~ Anxiety – Often manifests pains in the brain stem (vagus nerve) and diaphragm and benefits for anxiety are found with central meridians, heart, spleen and kidney which is why E.F.T is one of the fastest methods and i use for all clients who are anxiety sufferers.
~ Guilt – Often manifests in the large intestine and the LI , Central and Governing meridians along with lower root and sacral chakras will almost always need work

When you are feeling emotionally stressed, the body releases stress hormones like cortisol from the adrenals which prepare your body to fight or run from the stressful event.
When you are in this phase the pressure is put onto the organs…for example the heart rate may increase, the lungs need to take in more oxygen, blood flow increases, and therefore the immune system becomes temporarily suppressed, which reduces your response to fighting pathogens.
Long term you can see how this impacts on health.

Clinical trials and studies have shown us that E.F.T and other therapies such as Kinesiology etc can effectively reduce the emotional impact and energetic or biochemical impact of such emotional stresses and once the stress is reduced the body can often rebalance itself, and this facilitates long term healing.

Is the Law Of Attraction working for you ?

Is the Law Of Attraction working for you ?

You may have heard about the Law Of Attraction , it became rather popular with the commercial books and films such as “The Secret “. Many people mis-took the message of “abundance” from these teachings and i often work with people to help them gain insights into what the L.O.A is REALLY about…..here are some key factors as to why the L.O.A may not be “working” for you……

~ You are not present in the abundance you already have……

What this means is that if you’re NOT accepting what you’re already getting in life and all that you be then you are already giving out the message of lack or less the to the universe……and guess what…..you will never be able to open up further abundance with this programme running because the universe only gives you what you need (not what you want want want!) in the moment.

~ You are waiting for it to show up…..
What this means is that you are operating from an ego state and also you are putting out to the universe lack of belief….and guess what…the universe fulfils that for you! You have turned off the flow with that anticipation and expectation and also the universe doesn’t register time as we do so you set things into a box (conclusion) and the universe is creative / creation. As you turn of your own creative flow you start to worry about when and how things are going to manifest so you actually tune your frequency to more worrying and planning. Also your lack of belief is a subconscious negative belief that you are creating which brings the negative into manifestation rather than the opposite!

~ You become fixed into an outcome , therefore you sabotage the manifestation……
What this means is that you get your head in the way of the manifestation and expect it to show up in the way your head plans it….for example ….if you want to manifest more money in your life then you may expect to win the lottery or have a windfall of luck….BUT the universe has decided how that more money manifestation is going to arrive. So you find suddenly that you are offered jobs (that may seem inappropriate) or more work or notice new people showing up in your life.
You may have dismissed the manifestation in creation BECAUSE you had such a fixed point of view about HOW the money should manifest and therefore the L.O.A potential was unfulfilled. The universe is creative and i aligning circumstances through which you are capable of acting based on where you are at any time. The universe is actually providing all of the right circumstances and all you have to do is show up and be brave enough to walk the walk!

~ Your thoughts and actions are not aligned…..
What this means is that most people feel that L.O.A isn’t working for them but they don’t participate (as mentioned above) . The L.O.A is a partnership …..yes you and the universe need to work together. If you believe that the L.O.A is just about you thinking something and then it “magically” showing up …hmmmmm! It isn’t a substitute for direct action and involvement. YOU need to take the steps and if you are not taking action on a daily basis then your reality cannot and will not shift.

The L.O.A is ALWAYS working …..you are ALWAYS manifesting…..at EVERY moment , its just whether you are infesting positively , with ease , joy and flow or making it a struggle, negatively and hardship. So be aware of how your life journey manifests now.
Do you have more good or bad “luck” ?
Do you feel like things show up for you or is it a struggle ?
Do you find yourself saying “why me ?”
Do you have awareness of particular numbers, patterns or sequences that follow 369 , 11:11, 1234 etc or in decreasing numbers such as 4321, 532 etc ?
Do you feel “abundant” in your current life or “lacking” somewhat ?

Some key elements that can help you with Law of Attraction include removing what i call “distractor implants” from your life. I have listed some of these below :

Overthinking and over planning.
Trying too hard  to get what you want.
Complaining about the things you do not have or the bad things you’ve manifested.
Worrying about the future.
Trying too hard to fit in with others.
Attending events and gatherings you don’t really want to attend.
Listening to angry and negatively charged music.
Spending too much time with toxic and  negative people.
Blaming and judging other people.
Being fixed and conclusive with outcomes.
Regretting the past.
Explaining yourself to others , seeing yourself as less than or making excuses for your actions.

Law of Attraction is about being in flow and when you are acting out of any of the above it prevents that flow. If you would like to know more about how the L.O.A can work for you then call for an appointment (Skype appointments are also available too).

” Who do you become when things don’t go your way ?”

” Who do you become when things don’t go your way ?”

I find this question quite powerful and thought provoking , giving me great insight into what in my life i need to focus on. Through our life experiences we will all have a different story and respond differently , if the answer to this question gives you an insight into an area of your life that you would like to work on or improve then read on!

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

How we respond to difficult situations is a choice. We can choose to react with emotional / behavioural negativity (i.e. anger, frustration, overwhelming sadness, giving up, a feeling of unjustness with the world , stubbornness, using rituals as a coping mechanism etc) , or other forms of more physical negativity (i.e lashing out, using drugs , alcohol or using any other negative habit or ritual as a coping mechanism )

These days , I try to chose to respond to it holistically, by surrendering to the universe and by letting go of control and trusting what the universe brings to me.

I am not saying this is always easy , or that i always get it right. However my awareness is always here and my awareness brings with it the fabulous insight that it is ALWAYS my actions that are my choice.

When things don’t go my way, or something difficult or unexpected shows up in my life, i try to take a step back, this allows me to have a clearer viewpoint of the whole picture, and decide how i would like to respond to the situation.

Some of the tools and awareness that have helped me overcome difficult challenges and experiences within my own life are listed here…….i hope you find them insightful and helpful. I like to have these things written down in a journal , as when things do not go my way i then have a “go to” place which allows me to think and feel differently about the situation or experience.

Be CURIOUS , when you conclude something you are making a judgement about how it will end….therefore you are limiting your options. When you keep yourself in the questioning of the situation then you keep your perspective and therefore options open to potentials and possibilities.

Be BRAVE, it can be quite frightening and overwhelming when things do not go your way. Remember this is a phase of your life, not your whole life. Remind yourself that you have had other situations in your life that felt like there was no way out, no solution etc. ….and you survived it then.  Ride those initial feelings out and you will find a way forward , a plan or a solution.

Be OPEN to things being different to how you expected and to new experiences. It serves no purpose to hold on to past , what could have been, should have been, and comparisons  etc because it can make us feel bitter , unhappy and resentful. Accept the situation for what it is , let go of judgement , whys etc and accept yourself. We are all doing the best we can.

Be KIND to yourself.  Accept your feelings, its ok not to feel ok or to feel angry etc. We need to experience a full range of emotions. Its healthy and you are being honest and true to yourself. Even though the situation or  life hasn’t turned out the way you had planned, it doesn’t mean you failed. Stop judging yourself.  Forgive yourself if you need to , TO HELP YOU MOVE FORWARD.

Be in your HEART not in your head. Make decisions and take actions from the heart not the head. The head tries to rationalise and  make sense of what “should” happen  the heart feels what is right. It may not be logical at all but when you take action from the heart your intuition is working and it is exceptionally powerful. When i work from my heart i am ALWAYS guided on the right path. When things are not going my way and i reflect i am ALWAYS in my head and not in my heart.

Anxiety, Depression and Mindfulness

Hi All,

Today i thought i would write a little blog about Anxiety, Depression and Mindfulness……

What are intrusive thoughts?

I would describe Intrusive thoughts as any unpleasant ideas,  thoughts, images etc that come into our awareness that we continually loop as a thought pattern within our minds.

Most of use will experience intrusive thoughts but when someone is suffering with anxiety, depression , repressed trauma , OCD etc these loop cycles tend to become overwhelming.

They are a common symptom in those with anxiety, depression, OCD, and PTSD; however, the truth is most people experience intrusive thoughts from time to time. Intrusive thought patterns are usually negative emotions such as anger, aggression, overwhelming impulses to “act out…ie suicide, rituals , sexual fantasies etc ”  and whilst these thoughts are rarely actioned,  they are often considered “inappropriate” by the person thinking them.

The end result is often then feelings of unworthiness, guilt, shame and inner criticism of oneself even though they will not have actually done anything wrong.

Does this resonate with you ? ………

Some things that you may find useful to consider are : –

~ Accept your thoughts and where you are in this moment….without judgement of what is preconceived as a “right ” or a “wrong ” . The first step toward letting go of our negative thoughts is by accepting them. …….

EVEN THOUGH ( I HAVE THIS ..xxxxxx … THOUGHT ) I DEEPLY AND COMPLETELY ACCEPT MYSELF AND WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW.  It is a pointless activity to pretend that we don’t have intrusive or negative thoughts every now and then. And by trying to run away from these thoughts we are only deluding ourselves and in fact by running and denying these thoughts and feelings we actually fuel their strength and power over us!

The purpose of accepting where we are RIGHT NOW is to allow us to produce new and more useful ways to respond to our circumstances.

Remember, just because you accept the thought doesn’t mean you need to act on it.

~Watch your thoughts without JUDGING your thoughts. 

We shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves for thinking bizarre and spontaneous things once and awhile. Who’s reality did you buy into when you decided that your thoughts …or having thoughts was a “wrongness ?”   ….What if your “wrongness” was ok , just the way it is ? When did you decide that someone else’s perception of reality (and judgements ) were “right” ?

EVEN THOUGH ( I AM JUDGING MYSELF RIGHT NOW , AND ITS MAKING ME ANXIOUS / DEPRESSED ) I DEEPLY AND COMPLETELY LOVE AND ACCEPT MYSELF AND WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW.

It’s common for negative thoughts to be followed by feelings of guilt /  shame, but tallow yourself to understand that there is nothing to feel guilty over. After you accept your thoughts, try to watch them in a non-judgmental awareness. Don’t necessarily react to them or judge them as “good” or “bad.” Just sit back and passively watch them as if you were watching a movie.

~ Know that eventually these thoughts will pass. 

If you can observe these thoughts without judgment , you will begin to  notice that they will start to diminish. Be patient. Override the urge to participate in these thoughts. OBSERVE!

EVEN THOUGH THESE THOUGHTS CAN BE OVERWHELMING FOR ME, I AM CHOOSING TO ALLOW MYSELF  NEW POSSIBILITIES AND I DEEPLY AND COMPLETELY LOVE AND ACCEPT MYSELF FOR SHOWING ME HOW. 

It’s not always easy to disengage , let go of judgement and observe intrusive thoughts, but with practice it is possible to  learn how to more easily let go of them. Once we learn how to do this, they will have a lot less influence over your mental well-being

Here at Peace of Mind Health we have some wonderful techniques and tools to help get you to where you need and deserve to be. E.F.T , Matrix Re-imprinting, Hypnotherapy are all wonderful tools which help you to release old stored baggage and re-imprint / anchor  new and more useful beliefs.

If you would like more information about how we can help you to achieve your FULL potential   then please call us for a confidential chat and to book and appointment on 07531 191 688
