HOW TO RELEASE TRAPPED EMOTIONS
There’s good news for anyone who’s been emotionally bumped and bruised through life: you’re not damaged goods.
Scientists are increasingly discovering just how malleable our bodies and brains can be.
There are many ways to address emotional muscle memory. Some specific trauma release techniques require a licensed and trained practitioner to facilitate the process but some you can do yourself.
Yoga, exercise, and meditation are other powerful tools that can be implemented on your own. Massage Therapy that addresses muscle tension and armoring is another helpful method to dissolve stored muscle memory.
But the main solution to releasing unhelpful muscle memory is CULTIVATING PRESENCE & CONNECTION WITH YOURSELF.
You can do all the above mentioned tools for years and have no progress unless you are connecting with yourself. The core problem is that many people are dissociated from themselves — a state where you mentally “leave” your body. This is an excellent coping mechanism for when feelings overwhelm you. But living this way long term leaves you numb and in perpetual unsupportive mind body patterns.
How do I connect & cultivate presence & connection with myself ?
Bringing your awareness inward while meditating or even in peak hour traffic allows you to feel any unprocessed feelings stored in the body. Staying with your feelings with total loving awareness allows emotions to rise, digest, and fall away.
Connecting to sensory awareness is a powerful tool in becoming present with yourself, which ultimately will heal a rift between your mind and body.
