365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 56: Emotional Cleansing Part 4

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Emotional stress, clutter and distress change chemistry of the body, causing symptoms like high blood pressure, overeating or under eating, insomnia, depression, to name just a few.

Emotional debris can and will alter the quality of your life, at all levels: internal well-being, family life, work environment and community.

What creates your internal emotional debris?

Everything that you have not allowed to fully clear your system: childhood experiences, un-shared feelings, a job you do not like, a kid not doing well in school, not enough money, finances, the death of someone dear, not enough time, too much to do, too many requirements, an illness, moving from a house to another, from a city to another, not getting what you want, not having a life partner, something that happened 30 ago.

We are equipped to experience a remarkably wide array of feelings, from despair and anger to elation and unconditional love.

However, we are not equipped to store painful and unresolved emotions for weeks, months, years or decades. Un-cleared and unreleased, these stored emotions create many health problems and can ultimately cause a heart attack, depression or a chain of physical injuries.

There is a book that I highly recommend if you tend to worry about your loved ones, diseases, work, relationships, weather, wars, money and everything else. Here’s and excerpt from Dale Carnegie’s book “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living” :

‘A few years ago, I spent my vacation motoring through Texas and New Mexico with Dr. O. F. Gober—one of the medical executives of the Santa Fe railway. His exact title was chief physician of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Hospital Association. We got to talking about the effects of worry, and he said: Seventy per cent of all patients who come to physicians could cure themselves if they only got rid of their fears and worries.

Don’t think for a moment that I mean that their ills are imaginary,” he said. “Their ills are as real as a throbbing toothache and sometimes a hundred times more serious. I refer to such illnesses as nervous indigestion, some stomach ulcers, heart disturbances, insomnia, some headaches, and some types of paralysis. “These illnesses are real. I know what I am talking about,” said Dr. Gober, “for I myself suffered from a stomach ulcer for twelve years. “Fear causes worry. Worry makes you tense and nervous and affects the nerves of your stomach and actually changes the gastric juices of your stomach from normal to abnormal and often leads to stomach ulcers.”

Did you get what Dr. Gober said? “Seventy per cent of all patients who come to physicians could cure themselves if they only got rid of their fears and worries.” So the events and challenging times of our lives do not create our emotional turmoil and pain. It is what we CHOOSE to do when faced with one of these challenges.

This understanding shifts the paradigm a little, doesn’t it?

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 48: Beyond Fear Part 15 – Are You Fearless Now?

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I am really grateful for everything I have learned about my own fears and for being able to share it all with you. Thank you for coming with me on this journey to let go of fear and live joyously, freely, fearlessly. It will take you a few weeks to go through your list and let your fears go one by one, but you will get it done and you will feel FREE. The fear series has reached its end. Today is day 15 of the “Beyond Fear” posts and so, I will close with a few powerful quotes:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness,  that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

 

“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” – Les Brown

 

“You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.” – Dale Carnegie

 

“To fear is one thing.  To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.” – Katherine Paterson

 

“FEAR IS BECOMING RAMPANT on the planet. We can see it every day in the news. Fear is a lack of trust in ourselves, and because of this, we don’t trust Life. We don’t trust that we’re being taken care of on a higher level, so we feel we must control everything from the physical level. Obviously, we’re going to feel fear because we can’t control everything in our lives. Trust is what we learn when we want to overcome our fears. It’s called “taking a leap of faith” and trusting in the Power within that’s connected to Universal Intelligence. Remember, the Power that supplies our breath is the same Power that created the Universe.” – Louise Hay
