Anyone who has heard me speak knows that I always start by telling people trying to heal that the first step is letting go. In the physical body that means that the first step toward healing involves detoxing any area of the body where there is a block in the flow system. The body is simply not designed to heal if the toxin is still present. The body will create some heat to push it out first. Think of a fever, a rash, a cough. All are expressions of the body pushing out toxins. If it does not have what it needs to create the force to drive the toxin from the body, then it will isolate it, encapsulate it, and essentially store it somewhere. If the toxin is left long enough in the body, it will begin to degenerate the area it is stored, damage tissue and eventually turn into something deadly like that ugly big C word.
Emotional toxins work the same way! Think of the emotion of disappointment. Not much of an emotion itself but how do most people express disappointment? Instead of recognizing disappointment for what it is and simply expressing it, they hold it in and it comes out as anger or it shows up as sadness, loss of joy. Add enough unexpressed disappointments to any relationship or situation and you will see resentment building inside.
Just like the body needs to detox from physical toxins, it also needs to detox from energetic toxins.
Every wellness plan begins with a good cleaning! Out with the old to make room for the new!
Start a Negativity DETOX today. To be thorough you want to detox
- Negative Emotions
- Negative Thought Patterns
- Negative Behavioral Patterns
The first step is awareness. As you look at the three areas listed above, does something immediately jump out at you? There is a reason one or more of these resonated with you. That is where you start because that is what you struggle with the most.
Starting right now, when a negative emotion, thought, or behavior begins to show its ugly head I want you to stop right there. Next, verbally say aloud to yourself the exact opposite of what you were going to say or think. For example “I really need to lose weight!” as you walk by a mirror. Stop at that mirror and say to yourself ” I accept and love myself the way I am”. When the thought arises to assume a negative outcome ie: “Things don’t work out well for me in that area” replace that thought with verbally saying aloud to yourself “Things work out the way they are supposed to for my better good”. You get the idea.
By actively replacing the negative with positive affirmative emotions, thoughts and actions you are gently detoxing yourself. Detoxing takes time and should be slightly uncomfortable but not painful. Be gentle on yourself……no scolding or criticism. It takes time to develop new habits. Comment and let me know how you do!
