From our guest blogger, Alicia Kent. She taught our caregivers how to use self-acupressure for relieving feelings of grief, loss, stress and physical pain. Thank you Alicia for being so kind and thorough!
For so long, we humans have been for the most part taught to not feel.
All this “not feeling” creates so much “armouring” or “blocking” in our bodies that many times we can’t feel anything at all.
I remember during my time of 30 years working as a hospital employee and after a critical incident where I experienced PTSD…..and wondering why, after all the years of working was this happening now? I’ll always remember the advice I received from a councillor… “Alicia,” she said….”you have an opportunity to feel so grateful that you still feel after all the trauma of all these years working in a hospital.”
Yes! It is normal to feel!! And to express these powerful feelings. If we can’t feel our sadness…we won’t be able to feel our gladness!
So, you might be asking…”What happens when we repress these feelings?”….especially for many years, as so many of us have.
The answer is that we become so armoured we can’t feel at all. We crave and seek more and more sensation to try and feel….
some turn to drugs, sex, alcohol, and chaos…just to feel.
When we are armoured it creates energetic blockages in our bodies…..which eventually leads to not only discomfort, but many times to dysfunction and eventually in many cases disease
What if there was a way to assist one to release this armouring from the body…allowing you to access all that blocked energy?
The newer field of Bodymind work does exactly that.
The modality I have found so powerful, Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® blends the ancient discipline of Acupressure with modern Bodymind processing.
Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® releases both mental & physical stress and tension, and since it stimulates the production of endorphins,it induces a pleasurable state of Peace and Relaxation as well.
Balance, serenity and peace are found in working with Body, Mind and Spirit.
