Check out the chart below and see what parts of your body tend to hold specific emotions and patterns of belief.
Most of us can easily relate to how too much stress and responsibility gives us sore shoulders, but look more closely and see what else your body might be signalling to you. Ring any bells?
The first step to wellness is awareness. Being aware means that you're not ignoring your body's signals until the pain becomes so loud it's impossible to ignore. (Been there, done that?)
The next step can be choosing to release the patterns creating the issue. This can be as simple as consciously affirming to release the held emotions, or it may require acceptance of past or present issues, it may include forgiveness of others and/or self, and it will usually always require establishing new patterns of thoughts and behaviours. For example, saying to yourself, "I am enough. I love and accept myself exactly as I am!"
If this feels weird or difficult don't worry, it gets easier with practice!! Put reminders in your home as a cue to remind yourself of your new direction and thought patterns.
Another terrific way to let go of limiting beliefs and emotions can be through yoga, meditation, and body mind therapies, such as Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®. You don't have to do it alone!!!
Start by trying this, "Every day and in every way I feel stronger and more balanced in my body, mind and spirit!!"
