Rituals for Emotional Release
Rituals for Emotional Release: I have a good friend, an old college roommate who can get quite
emotional. When he was having a particularly bad day, he yelled out loud: “I
just have to dance!” He loved dancing.
It was even funnier because he was taking martial arts classes at the same time. He would incorporate his Tae Kwon Do moves into his dance routine. It was a combination of violent break dancing and a Rockettes finale – DUCK!
I on the other hand, would resort to breaking things. I would spin out of control and lose it. I should have asked my roommate for lessons. We humans are emotional beings. We need to express our emotions in a healthy manner yet many of us have been taught to “keep that shit bottled up.” The only problem is that the bottle eventually breaks.

We humans are emotional beings. We need to express our emotions in
a healthy manner yet many of us have been taught to “keep that shit bottled
up.” The only problem is that the bottle eventually breaks.
We all deal with a wide array of emotions, including sadness, fear,
anger, and shame. For numerous reasons, we’re unable to process our emotions
and we manage them in unhealthy ways.
For example, I still struggle with binge eating when things aren’t
going right. I can make fast food employees run for the hills when I’m having a
bad day. I am getting better at managing this.
We all try to hide our feelings as a natural defense mechanism. Despite
doing our best to hide these feelings from others and yourself, unresolved
emotions only get worse with time.
We can actually make ourselves physically ill. The same can apply
to our mental health status. The bad news: we’re creating it. The good news:
we’re creating it. We have the ability to reverse this course.
If you’re suffering from repressed emotions, there are a number of
ways to let them go once and for all. Begin by realizing you’re not alone.
Let’s get started.
Recognize Your Emotions:
Self-awareness is one of the least recognized processes today. It
could be because we’re allowing ourselves to be tethered to technology. Having smartphones
and social media at our fingertips distracts us from assessing our emotional
state. This is where mindfulness comes in.
Mindful meditation is where you sit somewhere quiet and focus
on your breathing. It’s an intimate process which can help you accept your
emotions and face them head-on.
Out The Toxicity:
All types of emotions need to be expressed in one way or another.
This is how our bodies release negativity and pain. It allows our minds to process
emotions and heal. Bear in mind that true healing happens when both the body and mind work in unison.
Here are some suggestions to “let it out.” Feel free to add what
works for you:
- Find a loved one, a
friend, or even a therapist to talk about your current feelings.
- Smash your aunt
Mildred’s figurines – just kidding!
- Follow an exercise
- Hit a punching bag.
- Karate Dance like my
- Scream into a pillow.
This really works for me.
- Take time to cry. This
also helps me. But don’t let it take up your entire day.
- Help someone. You can
release and repurpose your negative emotions by helping someone in need. It can
get you out of your head and help you realize that things aren’t so bad.
Indulge in Some Much-Needed Me-Time:
Self-care is something else we tend to neglect and put on hold
time and again. Nevertheless, we all need to recalibrate. Learning how to put ourselves
first and taking care of our minds and bodies takes time.
- Allow yourself to be
still. You can’t outrun your problems.
- Once you allow yourself
to be still. Allow yourself to breathe.
- Take time to journal and
organize your thoughts and feelings.
- Paint, sketch, do
crafting. I enjoy tying flies for fly fishing. This helps me turn negative
energy into positivity by creating something artistic and useful.
These suggestions can be practiced anywhere –
they are portable. The good news is that we are creating this state of mind. We
can be stewards of our emotions instead of servants of them.
I hope you find this helpful. You’ll be glad you
did this. So will aunt Mildred. ~Ted
Rituals for Emotional Release: Improve Your Mood with Hypnosis ~parts adapted via Hypnosis Downloads. com Rituals for Emotional Release
Whether you're grumpy, annoyed or feeling low, trying to make yourself feel better (in the wrong way) can be counter-productive.
Many people try to improve their mood by striving to figure out why they feel bad. As you may have noticed, this is a dead-end strategy because you just end up ruminating on what's making you feel bad.
How hypnosis can help improve your mood
The trick to improving your mood quickly is to work directly on changing your emotional state. Which sounds obvious, but it's easier said than done.
Which is where hypnosis comes in. Because hypnosis enables you to take deliberate control of your attention, and at the same time deeply relaxes you, it's perfect for changing your mood.
Hypnosis helps you to first relax you deeply, then move your mind and body into a different state, where your emotions and hormonal balance will help you feel better.
It will enable your subconscious mind to bring forth a new, more relaxed, more upbeat emotion. You will enjoy deep, peaceful relaxation, and experience the old mood drifting away from you. You will get a refreshing break, and gain perspective on whatever was making you feel bad.
It's well known that laughter releases endorphins in the brain, nature's "feel good" chemicals. The power of hypnosis will help you feel so much better, so quickly. Plus, you will learn practical information about what does and doesn't work to improve your mood. Rituals for Emotional Release
