The most fascinating topic for me these days besides menopause, is how linked our emotions and our physical health are. The surprising thing is how long it has taken us to find out, or maybe people have always known but treated it in non-medical ways, through shamans or herbal healers, or medecine women.
I found the title "The body never lies" on a website called women to women (linked in a few blogs back), in an article about emotional health. It's the title of a book by Alice Miller, written over 50 years ago.
Once I have learned more about it, I also want to tell you about the eft technique (emotional freedom) based on acupuncture meridians in the body.
I tell you, there is so much old baggage and emotional distress stuffed inside of us, causing our bowels to be disrupted, our organs to be overloaded, and even our blood cells to be sluggish and slow.
If you are reading this post, and you want to check it out for yourself, here's the web link: http/:www.emofree.com. If the link doesn't work, type it in yourself - it's worth watching the introductory video and downloading the manual, even if it's a bit lengthy.
So, please consider this a heads up - if you don't do it already - take care of your emotional health today.
Another great resource is the book: The Heart of the Soul, Gary Zukav and Linda Francis.
They say that our emotions are part of our energy system, and that our thoughts are associated with specific emotions. We can learn to recognize our emotions and how they cause painful sensations in our bodies, ie solar plexus area or tightness in the throat. Often there are repeating combinations - emotion = pain or sensation in an area of the body, such as Anger: pain in the chest area.
"When you are aware of everything that you are feeling, all the time, you are in continual communication with your soul."
Now there's a novel thought - can't say more right now, but there's a lot to explore.
ps I share these resources with you without gaining a penny from it, because I don't need to. Don't you love the internet and all the free sources of information available?
I leave you with that for today,
