Emotions, like clouds, drift through the landscape of our daily lives. Sometimes painful emotions may get stuck, causing our sky to become dark and overcast. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways to get the winds of change blowing to clear things up!
Here are 3 easy ways to begin clearing up stuck emotions and blocked energy at home today!
One of my favorite practices to clear up stuck emotion is to close my eyes and tune in to where I feel the emotion in my body. Once you find it, use your intuition & imagination to discover what the block looks like. Your inner-self already knows the best way to release it – so do that now! Visualize the blockage healing, burning up, being sucked out into a black hole…the options are endless.
2. Releasing Into Fire
Fire is a symbol of transformation, and is a great tool to help us release the things we are ready to let go of. Take time to write down what you are feeling onto a piece of paper, allowing yourself to really feel the emotion as you write. Alternately, you may prefer to pour the emotion into a flammable object that will act as a symbol of the blockage. After you find a safe place to start a fire, place the paper/object in the flames and visualize the situation transforming as the paper burns.
3. Tapping (EFT)
If you are familiar with acupuncture and acupressure, you may already be familiar with the intricate channels of energy (meridians) that run throughout our bodies. We can cleanly process painful and sticky emotions by tapping on these energy centers. While activating energy points as part of a sequence can be hugely transformative, even tapping on one of them may provide welcome relief. One such point can be activated by tapping firmly, with 4 fingers, just below the ridge of your collarbones. While tapping, allow your mind to cycle through the negative/painful emotions and you may find that the intensity of the emotion begins to lessen.
We all have the innate ability to heal ourselves, and I love providing techniques for my clients to continue their process while at home. Sometimes we need a little extra help to shift out of these energies, and when you do, I am here to assist you through them.
