Emotions trigger peptides (information- carrying molecules) that bind to and react with cell receptors. This means that our emotional state can make us feel physically uneasy or downright sick!
Think about this the next time you are watching a movie!!
If it is suspenseful, you may feel physically elated or feel your heart pumping right out of your chest!
If its a scary movie, you may feel anxious, stressed or the need to cover your eyes!
If it's a sad movie, you may get a lump in your throat or be brought to tears!
This happens because EMOTIONS are felt, our body processes this and a physical reaction occurs.
The same thing happens when we are emotionally triggered. Someone cuts us off in traffic, says something mean or is judgmental of us etc... How we react emotionally has a direct impact on how we FEEL physically.
Science reveals there are complex neural- processing functions in the mind, heart and gut!
When we feel the EMOTION in these areas, we can feel:
Mind (Head tension)
Heart (Panic attack or shortness of breath)
Gut (Digestive issues or feeling of butterflies)
One we learn how to be aware of our emotions, we can enhance our physical well being in so many ways.
I have been blessed to be working at the Enchanted Forrest Reiki Center for over 2 years!
I am grateful to have over 6 years of essential oil teaching and experience and have taught hundreds of classes on essential oils for overall health as well as emotional healing!
One of the main tips I teach in my emotional healing classes is that when you are feeling STRESSED, TRIGGERED or ON FIRE with your emotions, you do 3 things.
Stop whatever it is that is triggering you or at least step away for a moment.
Drop an essential oil into your hands favorites are doTERRA's Citrus Bliss, Cheer, Balance or Adaptiv.
Roll your hands together and take 4 DEEP inhalations!
Breathe in for 4
Hold for 4
Exhale for 4
Hold for 4
Repeat this 4 times. This is called 4 square breathing and can bring down your heart rate and calm your nervous system immediately. Some affirmations I love to say:
When inhaling: Light Love Abundance Peace
When exhaling: Release, Relax, Allow, LET GO!
Here are some tools from a recent class that I taught with some uses of crystals and essential oil blends too!
