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

Pains in the body–what do they mean?

trappedEmotionsWhy do we have pain and weakness in one part of the body and not another?  When you fall or trip, is it always on that one side? do you always seem to land on that one knee? tweak that same ankle?  OR when working with your hands and arms, does that one elbow see to take the brunt of the work? is it the wrist that seems to complain first? OR does your lower back seem to give out before anything else?

This is your body trying to send you a message about the underlying emotional – mental issues that are unresolved.

When we have any kind of unresolved trauma or drama in our lives, the memory and energy of that fight-or-flight-or-freeze stress remains, stuck in our tissue.  If we don’t do any physical or personal emotional work to release that stress, it will slowly grow with time by accumulating additional instances.  At some point the “pool of stress” will effect the surrounding tissues with enough impact that pain, dis-function and maybe dis-ease will result.  Unresolved it will get louder and louder and until it gets your notice–enough for you to pay attention to it.

Here is the pattern of any chronic issues: it started with a small annoyance, was ignored, it got more frequent, was ignored, it got larger (louder), was maybe superficially treated–but really just ignored, etc…until finally it seems all of a sudden, there is this big issue. and we wonder where it came from.  hmmm….?

So here it is. It hurts. What to do?

There are lots a charts and graphics around (like the link below) that can point you in the general direction.

  • Shoulders = carrying a burden that is too heavy, given to you by your family, the world (right side) or your self(left side).  what and why are you carrying it? what happens if you put part if it down or ask for help? remember that it takes a village?
  • Hips = support in your life, financial(right side) or emotional(left side). what kind of support do you need? must it come from others? or can you support and love yourself? who is not capable of supporting you?
  • Heart = love and connection. where are you disconnected from yourself, your family (given or chosen), community, your maker?  how are you experiencing shame, loss, lack, anger?  who can make you feel loved? how do you connect with yourself and others? what blocks are in the way?
  • the list goes on….

The trick is to do this emotional work ALONG WITH the physical together.  Doing this work from two arenas, emotional and physical, you will create a spreading spiritual effect.  The results are greater; swifter strides towards releasing the agony.

In my clinic, we do this with work with good results.   Reiki, Quantum Touch or general Energy work for the physical side and talking though bubbled up sub-conscious images that the theta state brings for the emotional side.

This is exactly the kind of work that represents the first energy work session I ever had and kept me coming back for more.  It eventually lead to me learning and taking it on as a profession.

It’s great stuff. and body pain tells you where to start the path.

Bowen and Mental Health

MentalHealth

Do Bowen sessions help with mental health issues?

I have to say: YES! it is a wonderful compliment and enhancement to any therapeutic work done for mental health.  Emotional and Mental issues have an effect on the body by tensing muscles, knotting up fascia, binding the visceral organs, interrupting normal hormone flow and disturbing lymphatic and circulatory systems.

What happens in the mind, also happens in the body.

By relieving body stress, the body become more relaxed and functions better.  This takes pressure/worry off the mind, allowing an opening and space in the mental and emotional bodies to heal as well.  It doesn’t happen overnight, periodic sessions are necessary.  But according to my clients, the sessions accelerated their progress and their were very happy with the results.

This article has some great thoughts on Bowen Therapy and Mental Health

I’ve helped clients address their mental health issues including PTSD, Depression and Eating disorders.  It’s amazing what the mind can do when the body has less stress and pain.
