I often find that I may meet clients and we talk about some aspects of their life which is disturbing them emotionally. I find many of us are sometimes not sure what to do with our emotions or emotional body – we may want to tuck them away out of sight and not feel them as they are too disturbing or frightening for us – or we may be so immersed with them that they just take us with them in all directions and keep us forever off balance. Generally though, I find most of us are not entirely at ease with what I will call our emotional body.
I have lots of ways of working with talking therapy to help someone go on a journey to know their emotional body much more intimately and in this way feel much more at ease with ALL their emotional repertoire and see and feel them with new understanding.
I also like to introduce to clients the possibility that emotions get stuck in the body. These are emotions that I feel have not been fully processed for whatever reason in our life and may be stuck in musculature of the body. I find they particularly get stuck around the hips – the sacral chakra to do with emotional flow, creativity, relationships to others and sexuality and around the shoulders and neck – anything to do with heart issues and being able to speak our truth, our authenticity.
Understanding emotions and clearing old emotions can be extremely empowering !
