Are you feeling the pressures of life?

Remember to save the date for this Sunday.  I continue to offer my weekly webinar in my signature zoom room.

For 8 months now, the ladies attending have experienced new levels of understanding about ; their gifts, breaking strongholds, creating success habits, healing issues of shame, worry, doubt, procrastination, and unhealthy relationships, making progress with their goals and life purpose, gaining insight about past pain, trauma, and childhoood experiences which keeps them living in fear, low self-esteem, and cycles of arrested development.  The “Filling Station (Romans 15:13)” has created a space for women to avoid burnout and refill their mind, heart and soul with hope and encouragement.  They are feeling seen, heard, and connected to others seeking empowerment and ways to strengthen their faith and personal development.  This experience is helpful, healing, and a positive resource for you to be able to endure this historic pandemic.  YOU are invited to be with us.

Here is a great lesson to learn. If you squeeze a lemon, what comes out? Lemon juice right! Not apple juice, cranberry juice, or orange juice.
The pressure on the outside releases only what’s inside.
If you have fear, doubt, and anger on the inside of you…then when life brings you stress and pressure…the only thing that comes out is fear, worry, doubt, and anger.
“Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it spring the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23

The more one watches or listens to rubbish on TV, gossip, music, movies, or social media…it shapes the inner man.
What you feel, say, and do is determined by what is going into your eyes, ears, mind, and heart. What comes out of your mouth is determined by what goes into your mind. Garbage in…garbage out.
What is spilling out of you when you are feeling stressed and under pressure? Are your words and conversations full of hate, fear, worry, lack, doubt, shame, anger, and jealousy?
It is a law of nature… that what goes in must come out.
So grateful to know from my readers that my books has helped to infuse faith, peace, hope, resiliency, and courage inside of them.
Guard your heart, eyes, ears, and thoughts.
The more you read God’s word and other inspirational books, the more you will have a reserve of faith, courage, love, and hope inside of you.   So whenever life squeezes you with the pressures of bills, relationships, loss, disappointments, and setbacks…your faith, hope, and courage will be released.

The word encourage is derived from the word courage which means “heart.” It takes courage (heart) to face your problems (i.e. passing a test, providing for your family, interviewing for a job, going into surgery, admitting you need help to become clean and sober, to deal with the bill collectors, resolving or asking for what you want, or going through the stressful process of buying a home or business).

Do you ever feel like you don’t fit in?

“Are you introverted? Are you the hyper one or do you feel social activities are exhausting? Are you the talker or the quiet one? Are you fine staying home or are you a social butterfly? Do you try too hard to fit in? Do you feel out of touch with the people you work with?  Does your family think you are the “odd one”?  Do you enjoy different activities than your peers around you?  Do you spend your time feeling like you don’t fit in?  Do you feel like everyone around you has a better social life? Do you feel people just don’t “get you”? Do you worry too much about what other people think? Do you feel out of place in your job, church, or family?
Start being confident about your unique personality. Own it.  Don’t apologize for your taste, talent, time, and truth.
Your emotional wellness comes from being confident in yourself and not seeking approval from others.
You can’t please everybody.  If you realize that you do have some anxieties, past trauma, self-esteem issues or have traits that create social awkwardness and isolation…be honest with yourself.  Seek help and support.  Be strong enough in yourself not to feel unworthy, invisible, defeated, rejected, or an outcast. Your tribe exists. Your personality traits, quirkiness, and strengths are your unique footprint.  So walk in it!  The more authentic you are…the more likely you will attract “your people.”  The more you honor and respect yourself, you will learn to honor and respect the differences in other people without harsh judgment.
You are uniquely created.  There is no one else like you.  It’s not your job to make people like you…learn how to like yourself.” Jewel Diamond Taylor, Conference Speaker, Author, Life Coach, Emotional Wellness Educator, The Self-esteem Dr.

Covid-19 – Deep breathing exercise tool

Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body.  (see below).

When you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. The brain then sends this message to your body. … Breathing exercises are a good way to relax, reduce tension, and relieve stress.

The next time you’re feeling anxious try this simple relaxation technique:
  • Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose. Keep your shoulders relaxed. …
  • Exhale slowly through your mouth. As you blow air out, purse your lips slightly, but keep your jaw relaxed. …
  • Repeat this breathing exercise for several minutes.

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.

clutter logo smThose boxes may have never been opened because you had to keep going to work, show face, be strong, survive, and hold it all together. Those boxes of pain could be stored in your knees, heart, head, stomach, back, or neck.

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.

pain body tender pointsYou could be experiencing muscle pain because you have spent years avoiding dark and painful emotions.  In situation where someone has experienced incarceration, abuse, incest, or rape in the past suffer from fatigue, muscle and joint pain, brain fog, and insomnia.  Trauma  changes the way the brain handles pain and stress.  It is very important to seek help to address your past wounds stored up metaphorically as “boxes” in your brain.

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.

This article is an excerpt from Jewel Diamond Taylor’s e-book “Get Rid of the Physical and Emotional Clutter”.  Download your copy today to review often and you will soon feel lighter and more peaceful.

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.

This story of abuse and low self-esteem is why I offer counseling and coaching

Linda has always been the unofficial care giver in any relationship. It’s always been about the other person.
She has continually put her own needs last. She neglects her own appearance, and self-care, turns down invitations for social activities and feels she has no voice or power to make decisions. Linda never gained her own voice to say “no” or ask for help.

Growing up, her mother was a cruel narcissist who had no warmth or interest in Linda, Her father died when she was young. When Linda was eighteen her mother became ill and Linda was the primary care giver. She has older siblings but they didn’t help or visit.
Linda cared exclusively for her mother which blocked her from developing and living her best life. Her mother died when Linda was thirty-five, and Linda lived on in the same house until she had to sell it as her mother hadn’t left a will. She had spent her life caring for her mother whose self-absorption didn’t include any consideration of Linda’s own needs.
She knows she neglects and isolates herself. She barely knows how to ask for help. She feels she has wasted her life and doesn’t know how to start living. Linda lives with shame and guilt and doesn’t find it easy to make new friends. Linda feels she is “stupid, helpless, useless, and unworthy” when she is around other people.
Linda developed low self-esteem and lacked physical or emotional boundaries to protect and honor her peace and value. Her mother’s fits, of anger and rage, unpredictable mood swings, silent treatments, insults, neediness, and narcissistic ways shaped Linda’s emotional mondswt. Nothing was ever about Linda… so she believed she was nothing. Linda has been conditioned through the repeated emotions of shame and guilt to feel that any self-promotion or self-care, opinions, or desires were conceited and showing off. She was put down a lot as a child and emotionally she has confused success with conceit.

As the Self-esteem Dr., I guide my coaching/counseling clients on ways to check their own “emotional temperature.” Why? Because people and environments can cause you to experience;

. heart palpitations
. head aches
. stomach aches
. digestion flare ups
. no eating
. sleep deprivation

. Anxiety spells

. depression and isolation
. excessive drinking, cutting, eating

. super driven high achiever

The spectrum of abuse from; parents, lovers, spouses, children, friends, and authority figures can be from mild to severe, subtle or mean, manipulative and charming.

These are some of my prescriptions to gain emotional freedom, peace, and emotional well-being…

Journaling: write about how you’re feeling

Meditation: some quiet time and reflection helps us listen to ourselves

Prayer seeking guidance, comfort, and strengthening your faith

Reflection: looking back can help you plan ahead. What have you learned about yourself?

Questioning: ask yourself what you need more or less of.

Seek counseling and/or seek out a trusted friend to talk and express your feelings, learn how to establish boundaries and self-worth to believe you can have a life beyond your present circumstances.

Deep breathing exercises

Be proactive and schedule time for self and keep your commitment

Creativity: draw, paint, crafts, listen to music – something that frees your mind

Physical activity – dancing, therapuetic massage, walking, yoga, pampering (i.e. nails, hair, pedicure, etc.)
