What are Toxic Emotions
We detoxify continuously throughout life. We process food, thoughts, and all forms of energy. When that flow is continuous and clear, we are steady and flexible.
We are not taught how to deal with our negative emotions. We are either in denial or reaction to our life stories.
Life leaves us weighted down under the ash of metabolism and the remnants of old emotions this get stored in our physical body. Mainly in our fat cells, organs and the fascia (the thin white membrane of tissue which surrounds our muscles and organs) which tightens and gets out of alignment. Therefore when we have a detox whatever we have swept under the carpet rises up to the surface and comes out sometimes as an illness, pain in our body or uncomfortable, negative feelings.
In our everyday life we are unconscious of this discomfort because we can hide behind our normal habits and addictions.
How can you do an Emotional Detox
© Work with the physical body through yoga kriyas and asanas. This helps release tight fascia which carries memory of past trauma both physical and mental.
© Mantras allow you to reduce mental noise and cut our mental negativity.
© Breath work will allows you to get back to your centre.
© Step back from the busy-ness of your mind. Feel the underlying mood of the body and mind to get a sense of where you are at.
© Help your mind get a prespective. Create a habit of stopping your mind relating to your emotional mood swings, but notice them without judgment when they arise. Learn to relate to the reality of you, which is your breath not your mood.
© The more we nurture these mental habits which support our health, happiness and well being the more the causes of the mood swings, negative emotions will start to change to reflect your will.
© External circumstances not governing your internal attitude.
