Have you ever seen one of those National Geographic images of an ocean storm out in the middle of nowhere? I find them so majestic and beautiful but deeply frightening and chilling to consider being caught in one… could you imagine?! Well most of us do our own version of creating a similar force of nature within ourselves (WaaWhaat!) We do this every time we put all our mental and emotional energy towards fighting, controlling or hiding our “negative” emotions like Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump.

Usually, we never see it coming and have no sense of such a storm brewing within our very core until that very force of nature has to be expressed and comes to a head in usually one unpleasant, unhealthy, painful way or another. Resisting your feelings and emotions is like swimming against the currents of that same ocean storm.

Unfortunately, we have been denied the very gift of learning the beauty behind emotional fitness which means viewing and using our e-motions (energy in motion) as powerful tools of inspiration for expressing amazing creativity and innovation and deepening our connection to our own humanity.

Most of us have been taught to view being emotional as “weak” and that we should “toughen up,” “to stop being so sensitive.” We were trained to deny ourselves permission to own one of our most powerful gifts that make being human so wonderful evoking inspiration, imagination and deep change. However, the direction of that change will always be determined by which way you choose to swim, against your emotional current or rolling with its tide to lead you back home where possibility lives.

So instead of allowing yourself to be moved or controlled by your emotions, connect with what is brewing inside using these few simple steps to give yourself release and relief.

Note: Always do your best to be in a safe space for this exercise especially in the middle of situations that are triggering strong negative emotions.

Name it and claim it – what exactly is it that you are feeling and name it? (I’m sad, or I’m mad) Then take ownership of your emotions because no one “makes” you feel anything and we are each responsible for how we feel, as annoying as that may be, no one can make us feel or do anything without our permission.

Locate it – As you feel the emotional bubbling inside determine where in your body are you feeling it then place your hands on that spot. This is where you tend to hold these emotions and may have experiences of physical pains that you didn’t realize were tied to this emotional resistance. An example would be a woman who always worries and has nagging lower back. This emotion can be associated with blocks of the sacral chakra and this chakra is responsible for the womb and reproductive organs.

Friend your Pain – Bring the pain to the forefront of your mind and “take a ride with your best friend,” (a little Morrissey throwback for you 80’s kids) this helps you step into the driver’s seat instead of being the passenger on a bad ride and it also connects you to the emotions at a cellular and energetic level. Then mentally give your body permission to feel safe to feel fully.

Acknowledge It – Once you’ve given permission place your hand on the pain site acknowledge the pain by saying “It hurts here.”

Let GO – Finally inhale a deep cleansing breath as if filling your belly with as much oxygen as possible, then hold it for 8 seconds mentally saying with sincere intent “I surrender this pain and choose to forgive myself, the person and/or situations associated with this pain to set it free.” On the exhale imagine that everything connected with this pain coming out as little particles of energy into the air and dissolving. Take one more deep cleansing breath and feel the difference in your body. You should feel lighter and the pain should be gone or significantly lessened. If it still remains you may have another layer to uncover to get to the root of when this first started.
