Happy 2018 everyone
The start of a year brings many to make new years resloutions, why not make intentions instead, of all the things you would like to achieve. For many health and wellness is a priority. Yes Detoxing the body is important aspect of our wellness, but so is letting go of the emotional attachments we hold within.
Our bellies can be wonderful monitors of our emotional health and the truth can always be found there.
So often, emotions that we long to express get stored in our bodies instead. The space where this most often happens is in our bellies (emotional belly, stress belly, bloated belly) .
Rather than telling people, our even ourselves, the way we truly feel, we may stuff our true feelings deep inside of us, where they take up space until we are ready to let them go. Stuffing our feelings in our bellies may feel like the “safe” response, since we then don’t really have to deal with our emotions. Yet, doing so can actually be detrimental to our emotional well-being and physical health.
One way to connect with and release your emotions is to do a focused exercise with your stomach area. This can be done anywhere you can have time to sit or lay quietly.
Take a moment to center yourself with some deep breathing and quiet meditation, relaxing your body fully and turning off the chatter in your brain.
With your right hand on your stomach, tell yourself three times: “Please reveal to me my true emotions.” Listen for the answers.This may take time, do not be disapointed if you dont “hear”somthing the first time, sometimes it can come as a thought, feeling, or a heavyness.
Repeat the exercise as many times as you would like, allowing yourself to drop deeper into your body each time. Notice any physical response in the stomach area, whether you have a warm, relaxed feeling in the middle of your body or if you feel tight knots in response to any emotions that do come up.
You may even want to write down any answers that come to you. Remember that the body doesn’t lie.
Releasing our pent up feelings & emotions from our bellies can prevent disease and allow us to live more authentic, Integral and expressive lives. Sometimes, if too much emotional energy builds up inside of us, a blowout can result that can cause discomfort.
You can help to alleviate this compression by doing the same exercise and adding sound to your emotional release. The more guttural the sounds released through your mouth, the more emotions you are likely letting go. Releasing your emotions from your belly doesn’t have to be painful and hard; rather, it can be organic and effortless.
It’s important not to judge whatever comes up for you. We tend to stuff our feelings in our bellies when we are ashamed of them or not ready to express them. There is nothing wrong with having feelings, whatever they may be. You can’t help your feelings; if anything, you can help yourself by acknowledging the truth of your emotions so you can set yourself free.
