Managing Your Emotions with Reflexology

Feeling emotional these days? The Covid-19 pandemic is presenting us with many challenging experiences, and this is a time when managing our own emotions can be essential to moving through our days with balance and a positive attitude.

Awareness is key. When you feel a negative emotion arise, it is time to let go of it as quickly as possible. Do your best to be aware of what you are feeling and why. Also, ask yourself if the current situation is reminding you of someone or an experience from the past? Sometimes differentiating what is present and what is in the past can help you let go.

Then identify the emotion. Once you have done this, massage the finger that corresponds (if it corresponds). If you have emotions that are on a different level than what is presented here, reach out to me for a long-distance session. I have a system called Emotional Reflexology that I created that I can use with you remotely that clears over 70 negative emotions! Please call 949-292-3223 or email me if you would like to connect.

Otherwise, breathe deeply, massage the finger corresponding to the emotion, and let go. Then do your best to look at the situation differently. It may be easier to do after you have cleared the negative “emotional charge” associated with it. You will be amazed at how much easier it is to make decisions and functions with the negative emotions cleared.

Forest Bathing for Healing: Join Us or Develop Your Own Practice

Forest bathing is healing.
Forest bathing is healing.

Have you noticed that you feel better after you spend time in Nature?   A practice known as shinrin-yoku in Japan and samlinyok in China where you walk in nature for healing, stress relief and calming. It was formally introduced as a part of a healthy lifestyle in 1982 by the Forest Agency of Japan.  There are also studies that have been done indicating that forest bathing reduces levels of anger, stress, depression and sleeplessness.  The trees not only emanate essential oil constituents like limonene and and a-pinene, but the consciousness of the trees and their energetic fields cause our brain waves to slow to match them.  The average pine tree resonates at about 7.4 Hz, which is also the frequency of a slightly hypnoidal state. So if you notice that your mind slows and you experience a meditative state while walking in nature, your brain waves have resonated with the trees.

For more information, read the Wikipedia entry on Forest Bathing.

Contact us if you would like to experience a Forest Bath (in the Pacific Northwest), or go ahead and do your own. Feel free to email me with comments about your results!
