What to Expect with Emotional Healing

March 5, 2013 — 4 Comments

Healing yourself emotionally is undoubtedly the biggest gift you could ever give to yourself. It frees you from the past and allows you to become the person you’ve always wanted to be.

Emotional Healing

When you heal the emotional issues you’ve stored up for a lifetime, little by little, everything in your life naturally transforms!

The Value and Importance of Healing Your Emotions

Dr. Candace B. Pert, the author of Molecules Of Emotion: The Science Behind Mind-Body Medicinewrites about the importance of our emotions to our overall health and well-being.  

She says, “My research has shown me that when emotions are expressed–which is to say that the bio-chemicals that are the substrate of emotion are flowing freely–all systems are united and made whole.

She goes on to say, “When emotions are repressed, denied, not allowed to be whatever they may be, our network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital feel-good, unifying chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior.”

Facing the Fear of Emotional Healing

Many people are afraid of healing their emotions. They believe they will encounter things they can’t handle or deal with. But the truth about Emotional Healing is that it’s never more than you can handle.

In each session, Emotional Healing will usually begin with getting in touch with tears or anger you’ve been holding back and generally it will end with laughing and having fun!

The most important part of Emotional Healing is learning to express your feelings until they release and let go. When you experience that cathartic release, even in your first few experiences you can feel unbelievably freed up inside.

Regular Weekly Practice

Whether you do Emotional Healing with a psychotherapist, a friend or through writing in your own journal, it’s very important at the beginning of your healing process to practice on a regular weekly basis.

When you express your feelings in a safe situation, you open up the door to your unconscious mind. If your unconscious mind feels safe enough to continue your healing, it will spontaneously start it’s own natural healing process.

Your part in the healing process involves regularly processing the feelings that rise to the surface of your conscious awareness. This occurs little by little over time, until you have had a chance to release the back-log of feelings that you have stored away throughout your life.

Can I Really Heal My Life?

Maybe you’re wondering right now if you can really heal your life. I totally understand! When things seem overwhelming to you, that often seems like it would be impossible.

In my 30 years experience as a psychotherapist, I’ve helped thousands of people heal their lives. I know that you can too!

The important thing is to start small with little healing tasks that you know you can handle and do your healing in bite-sized chunks. As you begin to make progress, you’ll feel much more confident that your life can really change.

Spiritual Emotional Healing

Facing the truth about your life and resolving your feelings is both an emotional and a spiritual process. It involves healing your body, mind and spirit, because all parts of yourself affect each other.

Relying on your spirituality is a necessary part of healing emotionally, because you always have those days when things seem overwhelming and there is no one available to comfort you. That is when you learn to pray for Divine help to get you through the challenging moments of your day.

Likewise, when you have resolved your feelings through doing regular Emotional Healing, you will feel much more connected to God and to your own spirituality. It’s like knowing that God was always there, but now the direct phone-lines are clearer and easier to understand.

An Emotional and Spiritual Legacy

You’ve probably heard the quote, “Except you become as a little child, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.” No matter what your spiritual practice, doing regular Emotional Healing will help you come back to a child-like purity and innocence that beautifully supports your sincere spirituality.

Over time, Emotional Healing allows you to naturally become a compassionate person who spreads love and kindness wherever you go. Love and kindness is the greatest emotional and spiritual legacy you could possibly leave for your children and your grandchildren!

  1. Dear Kari

    You are changing the world with your word
    You make it understandable and possible
    Thanks a million times over


  2. Hi, thanks for sharing this valuable information.

    I have a question. Do our thoughts create emotions inside us or just trigger them off? And also I know it is unhealthy to block out an emotion but what about a thought? Is it ok to consciously decide to stop a thought or a mental story that we have or are creating in our heads?

    Thanks in advance :)

    • Hi Paul,

      It’s definitely good to change negative thoughts! When those same thoughts come up repeatedly, you may need to process the emotion as well. Rewriting your personal story is also a great idea, however, don’t deny the feelings you have about what really happened in your life!

      Love and blessings to you!
