We have so much in the public domain of the necessity of a good work life balance it is difficult to think that so many people still do not understand that by ignoring the signs of being emotionally stressed, like anxiety, lack of confidence, prevarication, feeling bad tempered and memory loss. These are just some of the warning signs. This is the first way the body is communicating with us that we need to take action.
When things happen in our life – it impacts us emotionally, which then impacts our wider experiences.
We have so much in the news at the moment about the rise in Mental Illness. Now please don’t think I am saying there is no problem! There obviously is, however a great number of problems come about because nobody is taught or encouraged to listen to the communication that their body is constantly having with them.
No I am not referring to ‘hearing voices’ I am referring to the first communication system our body uses to talk to us – and that’s our emotional reactions to things. If we fail to take notice then the body will manifest physical problems to attract our attention.
So what could happen then? Could this scenario be the truth for many people?
When we have a negative emotional reaction our default is usually to push it down and pretend we don’t care, doesn’t make any difference to us, or think we are ok with it! We are in fact pushing those emotions down. After a while of reacting the same way we will begin to have embodied those reactions as a normal thing. Then we start to notice that we feel fearful, resentful or anxiety at times when there is no reason for it.
When we experience serious problems in our lives, it may be the loss of a job, a loved one, being attacked or mugged or bullied, the emotional reactions we experience are there for a reason. They are telling us not only that we are vulnerable but also that we have damage that needs to be healed. It is giving us a reference to be able to process the emotions. Sometimes the response is so intense that we can get lost in that emotion.
The usual response that my clients have had if they went to the Doctor, unable to bear the pain of bereavement, loss or anxiety any longer, is to be given a prescription for some medication to suppress the feeling . This then puts them in the ‘Mental Illness’ zone! When did Bereavement and other emotional responses become Mental Illness.
Bereavement like any loss or life changing event is a process that needs to be understood and integrated into our emotional, mental and physical states. NOT suppressed!
Dr Bach was ahead of his time when he understood that the seedbed for most disease is an imbalance in our emotional health. His very simple but extremely effective essences are the basis of the workshops we run at Energy Works.
Our vision is to empower as many people as possible to know enough about the essences to be able to support and work through any emotional upheaval in their lives. Knowledge is power! When you are able to change your emotional reactions you change your life and know that you are always able to help your self, even through the hardest times!!
