Are you feeling intense sometimes? And what do you do when you are?
I was away for five weeks in different places (Czech Republic, Brazil, Italy, South of UK and Romania) facilitating classes and being in classes, and had lots to say. When I got home, I had promised myself that I would carry on creating, keep up the momentum…………………….and actually I have been struggling with a lot of physical pain and emotional intensity.
Which I actually get is my body and being “realigning” to a new space of being, which maybe doesn’t have to entail pain, but in this case it did for me! And I get that it is very intense for many of us at the moment.
One woman’s journey to heal what doctors told her was impossible.
For years, Fiona Cutts was controlled by her crippling fear of chronic fatigue.
“I used to be so shy that I could scarcely say my name in public”, Cutts says. “My fear of public speaking was so intense that people would often say to me, ‘How are you going to make this work in the corporate world?’ I did make it work, through a mixture of avoidance and sheer determination, but eventually, the effort caused me to develop chronic fatigue syndrome.”
Numerous studies show that getting stuck in negative emotional patterns – anger, loneliness, sadness, stress and anxiety – can have a huge impact on physical health.
Despite being told that she couldn’t heal herself, Fiona pressed on, making space for negative emotions to be processed (not suppressed), trusting her own body and empowering herself with tools and strategies that support her to be more positive.
Are you fed up with an “ordinary” life? Maybe you're stressed out, struggling with low mood, or physical illness? Maybe there's a particular area of your life you would like to change?
