The Emotional Body

mark-daynes-34970There is an energy field round each of us that holds information, much of this information is what I would call -held in the emotional or energy field of an individual. It expresses itself through the physical body in unique ways to each individual. The emotional body and the physical body work together, often without the conscious awareness of the individual. The very nature of the work I do provides a platform for expression between the two. The beauty behind this conversation is a privilege to be part of. Our emotions are often complex and layered by life experiences, disappointments, regrets, childhood, relationships and so on, these emotions are held in our energy field and can start to manifest in multiple ways.

Through craniosacral therapy I am able to listen to the body along with the emotions and hear the two have their own conversation.There is often a link between what I would call suppressed emotional needs and where this is showing up in the physical body. By having an open dialog with my client we can often identify the link and this allows them to start to process, release and discharge the held emotions of inertia held on a cellular level. In Peter A. Levine’s book titled `Waking the Tiger` he states “The key to healing traumatic symptoms in humans is in our physiology” He goes on to say “its about energy-Traumatic symptoms are not caused by the triggering event itself. They stem from frozen residue of energy that has not been resolved or discharged; this residue remains trapped in the nervous system where it can wreak havoc on our bodies and spirits”.

The emotional and human body speaks to us, often through pain or discomfort. It is so important that we listen; if not then the body will have to shout louder and louder until we are forced to listen. Lets not allow ourselves to get to this point: Self care is key.

Wonderful short little video of Dr. Levine talking about his breakthrough session with “Nancy.” In this session he first saw the image of a tiger, which later inspired his bestselling book, “Waking the Tiger.”
