Sex Love And How To Take Care Of Yourself Emotionally
The best relationship advice is… take care of yourself emotionally when it comes to sex and love. Sex and Love are strong forces. Do you let them unconsciously rule your life?
In this article I’ll not only talk about how to take care of yourself emotionally when it comes to sex and love, I will share 3 video interviews with Galeet an intuitive healer who works with releasing stuck emotions.
In the first interview, she tells her personal story of serious illness to complete recovery. The second interview we talk about stuck emotions. And in the last interview, we talk about how women are susceptible to love addiction.
Sex and love are very emotional experiences. Relationship and intimacy drama affect our lives tremendously. How you deal with emotional upsets in your relationships have a profound effect on your overall health.
Relationship Upsets Affect Your Health
How many times have you been heartbroken? What did it do to your body? How hard was it on your body to go through a breakup? Or what does your body feel like after a huge argument with your lover?
There is no doubt, relationship upsets affect your physical wellbeing. Often it’s the people who are closest to us that treat us the most poorly and visa versa. Relationships become emotional battlefields. And this is not good for your body. During these times did you know what to do to take care of yourself emotionally?
Take Care of Yourself Emotionally
It’s my dream that we can learn how to become each other’s healers instead of each other’s wounders in relationship. We can begin by nurturing all the various emotions that arise when relating to others that affect us deeply. We can learn how to express instead of repress our emotions. Also, we can learn how to communicate in a way that creates connection instead of upset and defensiveness.
Stop letting your emotions drag you down in relationship and learn how to take care of yourself emotionally when it comes to sex, love, intimacy and relationship. Otherwise, you’ll find your body aging faster than it needs to. You’ll find your heart shutting down due to built up resentments and unspoken words.
No More Pretending
This needs to change. We are evolving. Instead of pretending things are ok it’s time we look deeper. Our traditional medical system doesn’t support this looking deeper idea. We go to the doctors hoping to get a quick fix when we should really be looking inside and at the emotional health of our relationships.
For every disease there is some form of emotional dis EASE. That’s why many people are now turning to alternative ways of health. Getting to the root cause instead of going to a doctor and giving our authority away hoping they can fix it.
Are you ready to empower yourself, your emotional health and your relationships?
The Doctor of The Future Frees Stuck Emotions
Traditionally speaking, we all know how medical doctors help with our physical health. We know that therapists/psychiatrists and psychologists work with mental health, but we often don’t think about a doctor healing our emotional health.
Emotional health can be anything that isn’t directly seen with the naked eye. We all operate from the subconscious. The subconscious is considered to be our emotional and energetic bodies. Some theorists will tell you that we operate from our subconscious 90% of the time, not from our mental mind. We operate only 10% from our conscious and analytical mind!
Your Subconscious Mind & Your Emotions
So no matter how much you think your thoughts are affecting you, it’s actually what is happening on a subconscious level that’s affecting your mental AND physical health. And this needs to be addressed in order to take care of yourself emotionally.
Now, what is your subconscious? Your subconscious can be anything from unhealed emotions from your past, belief systems, attachments to people, etc. It is everything we don’t see, but do feel. The ailments from your subconscious often lead to your anxiety, depression and even physical pain and diseases. These ailments can come from traumatic events you have experienced, either as an adult or childhood, or it can be inherited from your parents or ancestors.
Taking a pill to fix an emotional problem isn’t going to work if you want to evolve and live a fulfilling life. Having support and skilled healers to help you face your most agonizing emotions will enhance your health. Knowing how to process your emotions in a productive way is one of the most powerful skills you can have as a woman.
Learn How To Overcome Your Most Agonizing Emotions
What role do emotions play in the healing process?
The short answer is everything. Emotions are stored in certain parts of our bodies. For instance, anger can be stored in the liver or gallbladder. Something like unworthiness can be trapped in our reproductive system.
When these emotions get stuck or trapped in certain areas or organs of the body, that organ or part of the body may start to have issues or cause pain. Eventually, if it isn’t healed it can lead to diseases, such as cancer. Often times when women have problems conceiving children or problems with childbirth, it could be because of the unworthiness they have felt in their life.
Emotions and the Stories in our Head
We are just beginning to understand how emotions play a huge role in our health. But we haven’t learned how to BE in our bodies (where the emotions are) and instead we hang out in our head. What I mean by that is making up stories in our mind instead of feeling our uncomfortable emotions.
When we are upset with someone it is easy to make up stories in our head. Start telling ourselves how horrible that other person is and make them out to be a monster (in our minds). That is big storytelling and it doesn’t help us to get closer to releasing those stuck emotions. It seats them in deeper.
Brene Brown, an amazing speaker, researcher and storyteller says the most powerful stories that are told are the ones we tell ourselves. But they are often not true. She talks about how to reckon with your emotions and change your story.
How To Free Yourself From Love Addiction
Did you know that you could be a Love Addict? You create energetic cords when you fall in love with another. Do they go away when the relationship is over? What have you experienced? It’s not always easy to stop thinking about a past lover. The reason is because the energetic cord is still there. You are sharing emotional energy with them through that cord.
It’s important to clear the unhealthy cords we have created from a past love relationship that has gone sour. Especially with abusive relationships. If we don’t we’ll keep running the same unconscious stories and keep attracting unhealthy relationships. Your heart won’t be open and available to creating healthy connections.
When we have negative or traumatic relationship experiences they can invoke negative emotions. We are emotional beings so it is natural. Often we don’t process these emotions properly. We have been socialized to believe that we should avoid these negative emotions at all costs. And that they are not “socially accepted.” You probably didn’t learn in school how to take care of yourself emotionally.
So many of us do things to avoid our emotions, such as go to the gym, eat, watch tv, call a friend, get into love relationships, etc. The problem is even though our minds may forget about the emotion, the body hasn’t. Consciously feeling your uncomfortable emotions prevent them from getting trapped in your body.
Your emotions don’t stay silent. They may stay dormant for a while but not silent. They’ll eventually manifest in various ways. It could be physical pain, it could be through anxiety and stress, depression, etc.
The word depression comes from “repressed” emotions. The stress, depression, etc. are the signs that are telling you-you’re not paying attention to something that needs to released and healed on a subconscious level. If you don’t listen to these signs, in time, it gets worse.
This means it could lead to a more serious disease, such as cancer, that more often than not can be fatal. Or we suffer significantly for the rest of our lives. Some would argue a life of suffering is not worth living.
Freeing yourself from stuck emotions and becoming more emotionally aware is a process and a journey.
