This lovely therapist explains how emotions that are trapped in your body can be released by ‘physical movement’. She talks extensively about the different types of anxiety related issues and how you can deal with them ‘hands on’.
Personally, I find ‘releasing trough expressing’ the best therapy. I also believe in the healing power of meditative practices and alternative medicine.
In this video she, once again talks about how to use our bodies to move through emotionally difficult and painful experiences.
Becoming ‘aware’ of myself and my life has been a long journey for me. I am so committed that I created a two-months long program around awareness. Though the program revolves around different themes such as patience, acceptance and more, it is designed to provide powerful and playful ways to become aware of who we are in our Essence (in our core) and who we are not (the conditioned mind-patterns).
To my observation, most people find it ‘scary’ to become present. It is understandable because as soon as awareness takes hold in your consciousness, you become fully responsible for your life and your decisions.
Until you stay ‘unaware’, you can blame the world – the family, the neighbour, the government, God, etc – for anything you feel uncomfortable or frustrated with. As soon as, you start seeing your ‘patterns’ you will start having choices how to respond. Having a choice in how to respond to any situation is LIBERATING! You stop feeling trapped and life becomes a journey rather than a drag!
Whether you experience the journey inspiring and helpful is entirely up to you. You walk the journey yourself the way you chose it. Your success is in your hands.
We live at a moment in history when you REALLY need to know your worth! You must gain deeper insight into what makes you tick, know what road you want to take, hear your own truth so to know which crowed to follow. The THERAPEUTIC-ART ENRICHMENT GROUP PROGRAM is designed so you can discover all that in a fun and joyful way!
Being spiritual, or following a spiritual path about is taking a hard look at who I am not, where I am in reaction, and uncovering the hidden truth of my Divine nature.
or as Rev. Yeaky says
“Let life itself be a reflection of you living the spiritual pathway in your journey Home to God.”
The spiritual path, however, means something completely different to everyone. I think it is a good thing. We all walk the path that works for us, that works with us. We are all on a different level of spiritual understanding and it must be respected. I am not happy with people who believe that they have to kill those that do not share their understanding of spirituality. But I understand what they are afraid of.
First of all, for me, walking a spiritual pas has nothing to do with acting kindly, being calm, being helpful, or being generous, etc. Most deeply spiritual people I know are not the nicest creatures on the planet. But as a hipster, some twenty years ago, I often got upset or angry about things I did not agree with, so I thought that enlightenment meant to become sweet and agreeable. What did I do? Well, I started to force a smile on my face. 🙂
Then I realized, that walking a spiritual path only concerns one person only.
I love Kandinsky because he believed in the deep connection between ART and our SOUL. He wrote extensively about the way ART influences the SPIRIT and vice versa.
“Painting was a spiritual activity for Kandinsky.
In 1912 he published the book, Concerning the Spiritual in Art. He believed that art should not be merely representational but should strive to express spirituality and the depth of human emotion…”
In his book, Concerning the Spiritual in Art, Kandinsky writes,
“Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.”
“Before we spring clean, we typically take a good, hard look at what is cluttering our house. We do a walk through first to see how much cleaning needs to be done. We evaluate what we want to keep and what we want to throw away. We decide if there is anything too difficult for us to remove ourselves, and we call upon someone to help us.
Similarly, in spiritual spring cleaning, we need to do a walk through of our own interior makeup to decide what we want to keep and what we want to throw away. We need to evaluate what aspects of ourselves we want to cleanse. We need to understand what is cluttering our minds and hearts and keeping us from opening up to God’s love.
In this video and article (pls see LINK below) Sant Rajinder talks about how to tacle anger and upset. He explains how it comes about and what we can practically do to easy ourselves into a peaceful peace of acceptance.
“Is there any antidote for anger? The more we give in to anger, the angrier we become, and it gains its power over us. We reach a point in which we lose total control and end up doing or saying something that hurts others and ourselves.
The secret to overcome anger, is to stay calm in the face of whatever is happening.
As we face problems at home, at the office, or in traffic, we should not react in anger. We can recognize that the problems are there. We can take steps to solve the problem. We can even be proactive and try to remove the agitating source by communication or by finding solutions, while trying to avoid becoming angry.?
