Feelings aren't bad or wrong! They're an indicator of what's going on internally and what you need to move towards or away from to re-align.
We often suppress or don't like to acknowledge our feelings. Difficult emotions such as fear, worry, frustration, loneliness, anxiety, anger, boredom, hurt, jealousy, guilt and resentment (yes I know there's a lot of them) when ignored end up accumulating and causing stress in the body.
We get into overwhelm and resort to easing stress by overeating, drinking, vegging out on the sofa watching a Game of Thrones boxset (I must be one of the few people yet to watch it yet!) and going to bed exhausted and then unable to sleep. Often the suppression of stress leads to us being over anxious and overly sensitive, which means we have an emotional build up and results in "reaction, projection, blaming" and arguments with the people in our lives. Not helpful when you're going through divorce (or anytime to be honest).
The stress and anxiety caused by divorce has a double impact on our lives, as often we find it difficult to concentrate at work and we then worry about our productivity, maybe we make mistakes and we worry about loosing our jobs.
Stress creates a fight, flight or freeze response.
When stressed we are in "Survival Mode". This is fine if we're in life threatening situations such as being attacked by a tiger, however it's not helpful in every day life situations and we keep reacting as if we're being attacked. Everyone has a stress response. Mine very frequently was paralysis. When I was going through my divorce I would feel absolutely paralysed with fear. It was debilitating and completely exhausting.
That's why I became a Heartmath™ Coach
HeartMath™ techniques teach you how to use the power of your heart to TRANSFORM stress. When you transform an emotion or anything, you are changing it. The caterpillar becomes the butterfly.
What I loved most about discovering these techniques is that they were science backed. Now, I am quite woo woo, I believe in spirituality, the soul, the universe, higher powers, mysticism etc... BUT I wanted to have something that I could use to teach people that was proven. HeartMath™ has 26 years of scientific evidence. I love that!
