Overcoming Anger with Emotional Regulation

Anger! that flash of that grips the chest and gut!  It focuses our attention to the source of our indignation and calls for immediate action in

our defense, correcting someone else’s behavior.

It can be overwhelming and what seems reasonable and honest to us, inside our brain, can be an exaggerated tirade by an observer, even if the rant is not directed towards them?

Why do we react in such a big way? Why do we react at all, especially when our personal safety and well-being is not at risk,… especially when it’s directed toward someone we love and care deeply for?

Past emotions that are unresolved still exist in our bodies.  For some reason, the natural process of regulating the emotion when it first happened was interrupted and it didn’t dissipate. In the future, when a situation triggers that emotion, not only do we react to the circumstances of the current situation, but the stored emotion is added to the mix. The mind then faces a heightened narrative to which it feels compelled to respond.

We want to be in the present moment.  Life would be so much simpler if we only had to deal with what is happening now.

How do we get rid of those stored emotions?

It turns out that by paying attention, in a very precise way, to the physical sensations that represent an emotion, it will dissipate and be removed permanently.

Emotional Regulation using TIPI protocols have amazing effects.  In a short 30 minute or less session, a single emotion can be addressed and resolved.  It doesn’t matter what the emotion is.  The origin and story about how the emotion got locked in the body is not important to this process. We only deal with a current-ish situation that has triggered the emotion.

It sounds too simple to be true, but I have many clients who can attest to the remarkable results they have experienced.

If you have emotional difficulties that are affecting your life and relationships, give Emotional Regulation with TIPI a try.

Jessica’s Story of Overcoming Anger

What is your Emotional Temperature?

How do you feel when you wake up in the morning?

By noon what is your mood?

When your work day is done, what emotions are swirling?

Do you drop off to sleep gently? Is your sleep restful?

A large part of having good emotional intelligence is the capability to recognize our own emotions, identify the different feelings and use this information to guide thinking and behavior, to manage our reactions and adapt to the situations we find ourselves in.

But, most of wander around in a blur of feelings that we don’t know how to control or where they came from apart from the immediate event. And often, our most distressing times are over-the-top responses, soaring much larger than the current reason calls for. And these events repeat with a disheartening frequency, even if the exact cause is “different”.

It can be overwhelming and frustrating.  How do we get past it? When is our breakthrough?


Tipi – Emotional Regulation is a natural process that we are born with.  Sometimes the regulation process gets interrupted and the emotions that are active or in-flight do not get metabolized.  When the same emotion is triggered at a later time, even years later, the original unresolved emotions will activate and flood the current situation, prompting reactions and drama that are in excess.

Good new! We don’t have to know anything about the event or trauma that caused the original block.

In a Tipi session, a current troublesome situation is relived by describing the current situation and briefly telling the story enough to get the event firmly in mind.  Then the lymbic system in the brain is activated to completely digest the emotion(s) that were flaring.  Once emotion’s physical sensation blueprint is gone, the emotional block is expired as well.

Once complete, future emotional situations of a similar nature will not cause the “regulated” emotion to swirl into another emotional storm. In fact, each individual emotional regulation will quell most or all situations that have a similar emotional root.  In other words, a TiPi session for anxiety using one situation can resolve the unnatural anxiety felt in many, if not all, of your situations.

TiPi is new to the US. Almost no one has heard about it. But, the response of people that have tried TiPi is almost universally positive. They(we) are amazed at how transformative the TiPi process can be.

People stuck in the grips of grief, fear, anger and frustration have found their breakthrough. Lives have been changed for the better.

It can happen for you too!

Clearing Emotions to Heal the Body

I had a client in for TiPi followed by a bodywork session. She had been in previously for just bodywork (Bowen) and was intrigued by my description of TiPi.
So we did the TiPi session and afterwards she said, ” Most of my physical sensation were in places were I have ongoing pain or other issues.”
Her sensations didn’t “start out” on her physical issues but at the end, they were the “last ones” to appear and resolve.

Then I had another client that had a similar experience… Previous session was Energywork (Reiki, etc) and this session was Tipi + Bowen for body pain we had discussed before.
As the TiPi session wound down, his physical sensations were in the areas of his physical dysfunction.

These sessions confirm, again,  the link between the emotional/mental and physical layers of our being.  I believe the TiPi session is taking off the Emotional/Mental congestion off the body, so that the physical issues can be addressed and released.

its amazing 

Here’s an interesting Time article that say much the same thing: Ignoring Your Emotions Is Bad for Your Health.


Find a TiPi session to regulate your emotional difficulties that are holding back your healing–no matter what level (mental, emotional, physical)  it may be.

 

Shift out of Emotional Upset

Emotions

We all have them. Emotions are a physical sensation that our mind labels as anger, contempt, fear, disgust, happiness, sadness or surprise, or some combination of these.

When we experience heightened emotions, it can feel like they will never end. Usually, the emotional event resolves naturally. Moments or days later, we remember the incident–the story– but it’s not emotionally charged.

However, in some circumstances, this natural ability may be blocked. Each remembering of that past emotional event, or newly triggered similar situation, throw us back into the same emotional storm again.

TiPi – to Regulate Emotional Difficulties
When we experience an emotional difficulty, unresolved emotions from similar situations in the past will resurface instantaneously. The past clouds our understanding of what is happening now, and filters our abilities to function and respond effectively to the present.

TiPi uses consciously re-experienced sensations to allow the emotional blocks to be integrated and resolved – permanently. How cool is that!?!

With TiPi, the emotional patterns are deactivated, without mental interference. By giving attention to these physical sensations and how they shift, a natural and permanent regulation takes place. A critical benefit of this technique is the ability to resolve long-standing traumas and emotional patterns without emotionally re-activating the client.

Tipi sessions rarely need to exceed 30 minutes to obtain a complete and permanent resolution.

The idea is to have emotions, to feel love, happiness and sometimes anger, fear or surprise as appropriate…But without the debris of past experiences clouding the current situation. (again, how wonderful to let go of the past)


TiPi at Shining Light Energy Works

TiPi = Emotional Regulation
As a stand-alone session, come in for a 30 minute (or less) TiPi session to regulate an emotion. Decide which emotional difficulty you’d like to resolve (one per session) and a general idea about what kind of situation triggers this emotional event.

TiPi + Energywork (Reiki) or
TiPi + Bowen
TiPi session followed by a Energy or relaxing Bowen session is a great combo to alleviate an emotional difficulty and tackle the emotional component of the pain/stress in your body and spirit. These sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes.

Bowen for Stress Relief — amazing advantages!

Stress Relief – its something we all seem to strive for in our too busy and overwhelming world.

The first sets of Bowen moves in each Bowen session is always dedicated to calming the body, getting the mind in the room, on to the table and out of it’s maze of intertwining circuits of  desire and obligation.BlownDanilion

The body can only heal itself when the parasympathetic nervous system is acting (rest and digest).  The defense, recovery and repair system will do amazing things, but only if we are relaxed enough for all the body parts accept that they don’t have to be on alert or scared. The nutrients we eat can work to our fullest advantage when we are at calm and at rest.

Bowen can also be useful for emotional release.  We hold emotions in our fascia when we don’t know what else to do with them in the moment.  Held emotions will tighten the fascia into “armoring” which can result in the hardening of the soft tissues leading to micro-adhesions and pain. The Bowen moves releases the tenseness and allows the emotion to resurface, be acknowledged and released.

That’s why I found this Bowen article charming (link below), in that it equates Bowen to vitamins….and he’s right.  Bowen can be the vital part of your bodywork program that relaxes and resets your body to that it can heal.

When my clients come off the table at the end of a Bowen session, the least amount of praise I sometimes get is, “I feel so relaxed”.  and that my friends is a great complement.

Bowen Explained: For The Relief Of Stress

Reiki to support cancer treatment

Just as a follow up to my last post about Reiki in hospitals.Reiki improves cancer treatment effectiveness

Reiki sessions are becoming an essential part of cancer treatment.  It helps relaxation, anxiety and worry which improves mood, sleep, reduces pain, isolation and loneliness.  Reiki re-establishes and re-enforces the clients connection to their Higher Self — a spiritual, not religious effect —  that allows a grounded and centered calmness and peace that is key to healing and becoming whole again.

 

Reiki in Hospitals

ReikiInHospitals

Reiki can be a wonderful addition to any hospital/medical facility visit or stay: before, during or after. Whether for simple procedures, complicated surgeries or facing long-term, multi-session treatments, people that are undergoing any medical procedure are under stress and nervous about the what is happening to them and generally experience some tissue trauma as a consequence of the procedure.

So how can Reiki help achieve the best results?

Before the procedure
Hopefully, the clients have researched and are fully informed, but that may still only calm down some of the trepidation. Reiki before the procedure, calms the mind and balances the body and energy field.   Pulling the body out of “fight or flight” allows the parasympathetic nervous system to lower and stabilize heart rate, increase activity in abdominal and pelvic organs and tissue and re-balance gland activity.  This is the optimum state for commencing any allopathic procedures.

During the procedure
Dr Oz and Pamela Miles are known for their work in introducing Reiki during open-heart surgery. Unless the medical practitioner is Reiki-enlightened, like Dr Oz, it’s unlikely that a Reiki Practitioner will be able to work hands-on during any procedures. But, any Level 2 Reiki Practitioner or Reiki Master can send the energy with out touching.  This is the brilliant quantum physics effect of this kind of energy work; they don’t even have to be in the same building or city.  The session work can be arranged before hand.

Receiving Reiki during allopathic procedures, helps with shock, bleeding, side-effects of  anesthesia, excessive body response to the tissue trauma.

And don’t forget to send Reiki to everyone involved: doctors, nurses, medical technicians and staff.  Boosting their vibration, calming their minds and emotions and balancing their bodies will keep them present with the task in front of them, reducing errors and miscalculations. They will be calmer and more focused.  Who doesn’t want happier people working on them?

After the procedure
Once the procedure is complete, the job of the client’s body is to heal.  This is where Reiki excels.  Reiki is energy work that triggers the body’s innate ability to heal itself by soothing the shock and activating our friend, the parasympathetic nervous system. Studies have shown that Reiki client require less pain medication and improve faster. They experience improved heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation. Reiki clients are able to get moving and on their feet sooner, which helps prevent post-procedure complications. They recover bowel function faster, which means they often can go home sooner.

In practice
I’ve worked with clients as they navigate through surgeries and procedure, medical and dental.

Most medical professionals are aware of Reiki, whether they have experienced or observed it first hand or not. In my experience, they are always accommodating and friendly if treated with respect.  They want what is best for their patients.  It is up to the client to arrange access for the Reiki Practitioner. A discussion with the medical care team, and possibly the facility, is an easy, but necessary step to clear any obstacles to an on-site session.

Reiki speeds the natural course of healing. As Pamela Miles says “There is nothing magical about Reiki practice, but after surgery, it can sure seem magical.”

Parkinson’s Disease, Vagus Nerve and Bowen Technique

More tidbits about Parkinson’s that I find particularly interesting…..vagus

Parkinson’s and the Vagus Nerve

This article is about how ” Parkinson’s disease (PD) may be caused by an enteric neurotropic pathogen entering the brain through the vagal nerve, a process that may take over 20 years. ”  Translated to plain English  “enteric neurotropic pathogen”  means a “gut” “nerve loving” “microorganism (virus, bacteria, etc)”  In the case of this study, it’s a virus that travels up the vagus nerve to the brain and affects the brain producing Parkinson’s.

What rings my bells is that the Vagus Nerve is involved.

The vagus nerve comes in pairs.  They both communicate with the vital organs.  However the vagus nerve that branches to the left side of the body more strongly services the organs below the diaphragm: stomach, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidney, intestines.  The right branch more directly services the organs above the diaphragm: the lung, heart, pharynx.

And Bowen Therapy has an excellent procedure that addresses vagus nerve function directly. It affects just about all things in the chest and gut–pain and discomfort to rhythms stabilization, pressure levels, stones and spasms, infections, depression and hormone balances and behavioral issues.  just about everything and the kitchen sink.  No, it don’t cure these issues.  But Bowen Vagus procedure is very complimentary to any treatment plan–working the fascia to release any strains on the vagus nerve, freeing them to function to their fullest potential.
