Captive Emotions

The body is a miraculous thing and once you understand the clues it possesses you can start to find solutions.

To think the mind is a

separate entity to the physical body is a mad notion, yet it is

something that is so often overlooked or not even taken into account.

Every thought we have has

an influence to the particles within. We are not born with anxieties and

fears (apart from the fear of falling and the fear of loud noise) so

they are 'learned' behaviours, hard wired from experiences or individual perceptions.

One of my many sayings is

'hand over what you can't control' procrastinating and focusing on

negative thought and feelings literally hurts you and only you. Your

mind and body are being held captive by the emotions you are feeling.

There are many alternative

treatments, therapies, supplements and programmes that claim to heal but

I have to say that if you are not receptive to change the thought

patterns and the way you perceive things then all of the above will

never work. I have clients who I regard as 'blockers' not only in the

sense where they are very defensive or negative but also individuals

that may go through all the motions of relaxation or healing but they

are never 'receiving' it because they are not opening themselves fully

to what they need to address first, simply letting go of things they are

unable to control.

Holding on to  the anxiety

and fear linked with past emotional traumas or irrational fears will

keep your analytic mind captive which in turn effects the physical in

the form of all sorts of ailments.

The fruits of  learning and

programming your thought paths to HALT - STOP and hand over the toxic

mental baggage will far out weigh the relief of physical pain and


We have been programmed to

just heal and deal with physical ailments but until we deal and develop

the internal mental and emotional health will we truly ever be healed

and 'well' - I don't believe so.

'Nothing can stand up to

rich morality or a rich centre of Wisdom' - Elliott S. Dacher, M.D. -

Rich morality is a sense of doing the right thing, not by us as

individuals of what we think is right by what we need or want by the

right thing morally, this along with a wisdom of experiences in life is

core to learning how to deal with the negativities life throws at us.

In all beliefs, faiths and religions, there is a message

'Know thyself'.


Midway upon the journey of our life,

I found myself within a forest dark,

For the straightforward pathway had been lost.

Ah me! how hard a thing it is to say

what was this forest savage, rough, and stern,

which in the very thought renew the fear.
