Grandmother brought up a good point in one of her teachings. Feelings are different than emotions. You can hide your feelings because they are superficial and can be hidden away. Feelings are something you can gloss over and laugh about. You can have a feeling without a reaction to it.
Emotions, on the other hand, run strong and deep and you can’t run from them. Emotions arise out of a strong reaction to something you’ve experienced such as a let down or trauma or extreme joy such as a proposal or life changing event. It evokes joy, tears, anger, an outburst of some kind.
It’s almost impossible for anyone not to show their emotions to a life changing event.
In our society, we aren’t taught how to handle our emotions. There’s no place to go to strongly emote anger or frustration. We’re expected to hold it all in.
So one day when a woman walked into my office and told me I had to help her because she didn’t want to end up in a hospital for mental patients because she was losing it I was immediately challenged. I had to come up with something fast. This person was totally overwhelmed and asking for immediate help with her emotional state of being.
So, okay. I had to pull a rabbit out of my hat on a moments notice. I opted to take her on an inner journey so she could address whatever demons were making her distraught. No one goes through those kinds of emotional ups and downs without demons. We pick them buggers up from various places. Drinking opens portals for them to come through. It could be a glass of wine or a binge drinking episode. Doesn’t matter. Alcohol opens the aura’s protection grid. So do drugs. They don’t call alcohol “spirits” for nothing.
Session begun. Patient comfortable and ready. The journey begins. Throughout the walk down into subconsciousness it is evident she is comfortable with the process. I walk her through where she needs to be to address what’s bothering her. She stays there and her breathing settles and evens out. Her body language changes from fraught and overwhelmed to calm and in control. She’s dealing with whatever had surfaced and is ready to come back to consciousness.
Sometimes we just need a little help.
When the patient is conscious once again and able to talk about her experience she is calmer. She knows she’s in control and she’s fine. She can talk about what she saw and how she handled it if she so desires. It’s up to her. She tells me of her experience and I’m honored she felt she could share.
The purpose of an inner journey is to empower you in whatever way you need to feel empowered. It is not my empowerment – nor is it about anyone but you. It is whatever you need in whatever moment you’re in.
We need to find ways to handle our emotions. An inner journey is one way. It works and it should be considered as an option when you are feeling out of control.
