Releasing Negative Emotions

Adapted from TransformationZ Stress Reduction Program

 


Negative emotions. We all have them, and we all wish to be rid of them!

 

Would you like to learn a way to release negative feelings and emotions in the privacy of your own home?

 

Sit down in a quiet room, and make yourself relaxed. Close your eyes and take a few deep, relaxing breaths. Begin to imagine that you are walking up a mountain. You are on a well worn path that is very comfortable. The air is clear and crisp and you feel wonderful.

 

Now imagine that you come to a clearing and it is time to rest. Find a nice spot to sit down. Take another deep breath. Look all around at the beautiful scene. You are safe and secure, ready to release the negative attachments that have been so burdensome. You never realized how easy it could be, for all that you need to do is speak your truth and let your words be carried by the echo of the canyon.

 

Trust your deep wise mind to guide you towards the words that will be most healing. Again, no right or wrong way. Speak from your heart and let the words echo all around you. Each reverberation of the echo solidifies at the deepest level the release you seek. When ready, imagine that you can stand up and slowly begin walking down the mountain. You will most certainly feel cleansed and refreshed.

What do YOU like to do to have FUN?

Singin’ the Blues – and How to Change the Tune!

jumping-for-joyYou know the feeling -– when everything seems to be “off”, you are not on your game, and quite frankly, you feel lousy.

 

In a funk…down and out…there are many expressions for this feeling. The music industry is loaded with soulful, sad songs. Does it actually make us feel better to listen to these lyrics? Does misery really love company?

 

More importantly, what can we do to get ourselves out of the rut?

 

Here is a powerful tip that I have found to be helpful – with myself and with my clients.

 

Get moving!

 

Moving into action helps release the stress and shifts both body and mind towards positive energy.

 

We free up a tremendous amount of energy when we move our bodies. Our bodies were designed to move. Too often when we are stressed we forget to move; we can even forget to breathe deeply.

 

Spending too much time in our thoughts prevent us from clear thinking and clear decisions. Moving your body will free up energy –- not just physical, but mental as well.
