Where does it hurt?

Where does it hurt?  That’s the question the doctor usually asks when you come to be healed of your back ache, head ache, muscle pain, heart problems, high blood pressure, weight issues or depression?

Your emotional and physical body are one. Your body holds memories, emotions, and unresolved issues. You probably have feelings that are unexpressed or never healed which get stored in your body (i.e. trauma from abuse, incest, rape, incarceration, homeless). You may have emotional junk in your trunk.  Your heart can be heavy with emotional clutter. Maybe as a child you were never been hugged…never accepted…felt different…always punished…told to be quiet, be seen and not heard.  Feelings of rejection become suppressed emotions in your body.

Your feelings from a divorce, job loss, accident, anger, incarceration, severe illness, or uncried tears from the death of a loved one can pile up boxes of emotions in your body.

Your internal conflict or unresolved emotional issues can store up in your muscles. You could have bladder problems (e.g. “He pissed me off!”). Maybe you are full of anxiety, nervous, worried and can’t sleep (e.g. “They are getting on my nerves.”).

Maybe you’re realizing you’ve had denial, lapses of memory, fallen into an addiction caused by saying to yourself, “I can’t believe this is happening to me!@#!”.

Your way of coping could have been sleeping, depression, denial, lapses of memory, staying extra busy, etc.

Unresolved sadness, grief, or anger from a breakup could make you feel you like you can’t breathe causing your chest to feel heavy, (e.g. “My heart is broken.”) thus making your body more vulnerable for a  heart attack or stroke.

I’ve had my share of depression which happens when a toxic situation builds up over time in the brain.

Recently I have allowed myself to open some boxes and stop suppressing some feelings. I’m getting rid of some emotional boxes.

I have cried, reflected, cut my losses, let go of grudges, forgiven myself, laughed, given thanks, prayed and let go. I have felt muscle tightness in my shoulders (e.g. Trying to fix other’s problems and carry the world on my shoulders…thus back and shoulder pain.)

Seek healthy ways to unpack your emotional boxes and get rid of the emotional clutter.

In my seminars and retreats I offer injections for the infection of low self-esteem, fear, stress, procrastination and emotional pain. Those boxes could be blocking your door of success, health, peace and blessings.

Talk therapy, meditation, stretching, exercising, change of diet, emotionally distancing yourself from toxic people or places can help reduce your physical and emotional pain.

I’m done!!!!!

When you are feeling agitated, sad, mad, or hurt…ask yourself “What is REALLY going on?”
The real answer may surprise you. You may just be tired, lonely, sick, feeling ashamed or stretched to your limit. How often do you take out your frustrations on the wrong person, your closest target? How often do you make permanent decisions about a temporary situation? How many times have you quit a relationship, marriage, project, or job because your nerves and emotions were on edge?  How many times have you said, “I’m done!” but you were really feeling anxiety, used, abused, invisible, physically exhausted, not heard, not appreciated, insecure, overwhelmed, scared, tired of trying, and simply needing a break?

Is the clock ticking and you feel like you are running out of time? Sometimes the question is…”Who’s the matter with you” not “WHAT is the matter with you?”  Lingering, futile, toxic, unhappy, or manipulative relationships can tire you out.  Are you an overhelper, co-dependent, fixer, or is your loyalty displaced?

People and circumstances may trigger your emotions which live right underneath your skin that you have pushed down, ignored, forgotten or covered up with a mask.
What is really going on with you?

If you cut your finger or broke your leg, you would seek immediate medical care.
What do you do when you are emotionally bleeding, have a broken heart, become blind and lose sight of your purpose, your joy and optimism are on life support, or you fell down and fractured your faith, peace, and hope?

Through my counseling/coaching style I am able to support others to:

. discover emotional sobriety and emotional freedom
. improve their relationships
. revive their self-worth and self-esteem
. reduce their vulnerability to toxic people or past shame
. learn how to navigate a crisis without numbing themselves
. cope with a crisis with acceptance, action, right thinking, faith, endurance,       hope, and productive coping skills.
. move forward past their shame, procrastination, grief, abuse, setbacks, burnout, or ffaith fatigue.

Prayer for a new home

Praying for a New Home

Thank you Lord for hearing and responding to my prayer for my housing situation.

I release my anxiety and fears and focus on my faith in your power and provision.           I stand on my faith believing that my housing needs of a beautiful place to live with _________bedrooms, ________________ and ____________________ will be realized.

Thank you for placing me in the right place at the right time to meet the right people.  I thank you God in advance for how You can work this out.  All that the Father hath for me is mine and I take possession of what belongs to me with a swiftness, gratitude and confidence.  I believe as I speak these words, that You, Father God, go before me preparing a way.

I have no fear, for You are with me – my peace, my protection and my provision. 

Thank You for placing heavenly and earthly angels in my life to guide me. 

I believe what You have done for others, You can do for me.  Grant me favor so that I may learn soon of approval of my place to live. 

I will share Your goodness with others so they may know of Your power and glory.

I trust your promise from 1 Corinthians 2:9 “that no eye has seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.”  So I will dream big and keep my worries small.

I feel better, encouraged and ready now for my breakthrough.  Thank You Lord for being the center of my JOY and the source of my great new home! Amen
