Ten Ways to Stabilize Your Emotional Wellbeing
Our emotions are an intangible part of us, and in some ways, that makes it the least understood facet of humanity and human interactions. These emotions start to develop just as soon as we are born, our experiences and interactions in the world forming them positively or negatively.
A lot of the perceptions, hang-ups, and problems we grow into are due to improperly managed emotions from our impressionable younger days.
Emotional development and well-being affect our disposition as adults. It informs our ability to deal with the situations that we face, and navigate the world around us.
People struggle under the weight of defeated hopes and unrealized dreams, fighting with forces that they don’t understand because of trapped emotions that have never been resolved. These are not issues you can see or clearly spell out, but that doesn’t make them any less important.
Signs of Trapped Emotions
• Frequent crying
• Depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses
• Inability to form relationships and keep romantic partners
• Being trapped in a loop of reliving the past
• Negativity and pessimism
• The physical manifestation of pain and disease
Balancing the emotional with the physical is an important step to all-round well-being and health. Emotional health is just as important as the physical, and there are solutions to every illness no matter their origin. People who have taken steps towards stabilizing their emotional state have testified that they live fuller, more meaningful lives as a result, and are better able to form relationships.
So then, how can one deal with these trapped, unresolved emotions?
Dr. Bradley Nelson is a certified holistic physician and a lecturer with years of experience in emotional health. In his work and research, he has gathered a treasure trove of information he calls the ‘emotion code’. These principles are practical and effective ways to unlock the ephemeral parts of our minds, leading to a healthier emotional balance.
1. Work With A Certified Emotion Code Practitioner
Trained emotion code practitioners can help you work through repressed and improperly managed emotions, leading to a better understanding of your emotional state. They can help you to identify the repressed emotion, pin down the particular area of your body it is repressed in, and facilitate its release, which will help you to gain relief from the physical manifestations of the illness.
2. Pay Attention To Your Body
The body is an excellent system that works in tandem with our minds. Emotions are not just of the mind, they have physical manifestations too.
Recognise what you need to feel okay, especially in pressure-filled situations. Do not starve your body of much-needed rest and nutrition; the body cannot function optimally without nutrition.
In addition to sleep and good food, there are other stress relievers that can prevent an emotional boilover. Take a walk when you feel stressed, or listen to calming music. Lean on your partner when you feel overwhelmed. Take a time out and go out for a lunch date with friends when you are overwrought.
3. Release Emotions One After The Other
This is the most effective way to process emotions, by identifying them one after the other. This means that you don’t just approach a negative emotion like anger as a whole; instead, you ask “why am I angry? What triggers the anger? Am I angry or just feeling out of control or anxious?”
These questions will lead you to the root cause, and not just deal with the problems on the surface. A trained emotion code practitioner can help you to find the root of your emotions, and to deal with their cause.
4. Give Yourself Time To Process Emotions When They Are Released
Dealing with these emotions can be taxing. Don’t be in a hurry when healing from emotional damage. Give yourself time to deal with the issues that have caused the repressed emotions, and unravel them one at a time. The mind, like the body, needs ample time to heal from an illness.
5. Recognise Your Emotional Triggers
Emotions work in cycles, and specific triggers influence these cycles. For example, an emotion of repressed anger could be triggered by a certain event. If this anger was not properly dealt with at its root, any situation that brings up emotions similar to the repressed emotions will cause an outburst of anger too.
6. Be Mindful Of Your External Influences
The factors you surround yourself with can affect your emotional well-being. Your friends, food, workplace and even the programs you watch on TV can pile up into negative emotions that begin to affect your physical wellbeing. You will be surprised at the progress you will make when you mindfully avoid toxic friends and family members, or when you leave the draining job that is wrecking havoc on your physical and emotional health.
7. Process Positively
When you are aware of an emotion, process it positively. Don’t fall into the hamster wheel of negativity, wallowing and further debilitating thoughts. Instead, talk to a trained emotion code practitioner to help you process your feelings. You could also ease your burdens by writing about them in a journal, which will help you to examine your thoughts and even get greater insight. Involve yourself in calming activities like cleaning your pet, organizing your closet, going for a walk, or volunteering at a shelter. There is nothing like removing our focus from ourselves to help us gain greater insight into our own problems.
Ten minutes of meditation every day goes a long way into helping you gain clarity into your thoughts and emotions. Meditation is calming, introspective, and can help you get rid of negative energy. Simply sit down or lay down comfortably, close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Keep your attention on your breathing - thats meditation!
9. Practice Some Positive Affirmation Techniques
This can be done preferably at the start of your day before you go to work or school. Take a few minutes to breathe in and out deeply, then in a state of meditation, affirm positively by visualizing and living positive declarations about yourself.
You are beautiful. You make good decisions. You go through life with grace. You are wise. You are a beacon of good energy. You surround yourself with light.
Don’t just think it, be it!
10. Use The Amwand
AMwand is a small, metallic pen shaped active energy tool, which resonates at Zero Point Energy field, also can help a lot in releasing trapped emotions and it is gaining much popularity due to its efficacy and ease of use. It operates under the “zero point resonance” theory, which simply states that all atoms are in a constant state of vibration and get the energy for the constant motion from the energy around them-even when they are in a ground state.
This wand releases a concentrated energy field that can be used to relieve stress, release trapped emotions and even pin down pain areas to relieve the pain.
With these tips, you will surely notice a stronger emotional threshold and ability to process everyday situations gracefully. In addition to that, you will feel unburdened and lighter, and be a force for positivity in your environment.
