emotions you have pushed away over time or
judged as bad are injurious to your health. Stuffed feelings move deeper into your
cells and tissues and become the causes of such things as digestive,
elimination, organ function disturbances, and very scary medical diagnoses.
Consider loving those emotional boo
into wholeness the next time they show up for you. Offer your cells and
tissues large doses of loving kindness. It’s easier than you think.

You can tell
when you’ve been holding on to or brewing an emotion. When it finally does come
up it’s explosive like a volcanic rage, or you cry for half an hour or all day
about some little thing, or you’ve been worrying about the same seemingly
trivial thing for years.

Old school for
healing emotions was years of sitting with a counselor or therapist remembering
and facing every crappy experience. Catharsis was big. Newer, less traumatic options
besides screaming and yelling can encourage your release from emotional boo boo
bondage. No matter what you choose, energy healing self-help is a valuable complement.

Start right
where you are in this moment. Imagine loving every part of your self, the good
stuff and the bad.

When you judge
your feelings as harmful, bad, and shameful, you disassociate or
separate parts of your self (shadow side). Today we know that your cells
respond in a nano-second to your thoughts and feelings. That can be harmful or
harmonizing. Every one of those feelings you push away or deny, suppress or
judge to be not good, or someone else judges for you to be not good are pieces
of you that you can bring into wholeness with love.  

Years ago a spiritual
teacher talked about the importance of
healing your emotions.
 He said you
could know God best through your feelings. My teacher gave this analogy.

If you fall down
and severely cut your elbow so blood and bone are exposed, your immediate,
innate response is to pull your elbow close to you and do whatever it takes to
bring the elbow back to full health and usefulness. You go to the hospital. You
might even kiss it like your grandmother used to do for you as a child. You will
surely hold it to your body to stop the bleeding while you get more help. You baby
your healing elbow, protect it from bumps, and keep it clean. Eventually nurturing
it back to full health because you need to be able to use your elbow, right?

Do the same for your
emotions and feelings: nurture them back
to full usefulness.
You need emotional balance more than you require your elbow.
This is important because healthy emotions are a doorway to a sensitive
awareness of things that are not physical and cannot be seen with physical

Parts of you, sticky
thoughts and feeling pieces, sometimes called the shadow side, may be returned to
wholeness, neutral; that place of being without any emotional “charge” good or
bad. Consider lovingly drawing closer to you like an injured elbow, your emotional
“elbows” or boo boos. Raising your feelings and emotions to a compassionate
level of understanding connects you to a Force that is felt like Grace is felt.

How do you
actually do this loving into wholeness thing? Begin by observing, being
present with a feeling. When you find yourself judging or self-loathing or
hating yourself or another person, shift the disturbance this way. Catch
yourself when something is bad, shameful, obnoxious, rude, resentful,
ridiculous, and say to yourself, preferably out loud: “I love the part of myself
that is rude,”
or “I love the part of myself that is mean,” or “I love the part
of myself that I see reflected in that person who is being disrespectful to Mother

This might be a
stretch, I know, I’ve been there. It really tests your mettle. Do you really
mean it? And it gets easier. Love when you recognize judging. Love when you
recognize hating. Love when you recognize shaming or belittling.

Can you imagine,
for example, how loving the parts of yourself that you judge as ugly might have
something to do with whatever parts of you want to continue to attack yourself
as in an auto-immune disease? It is the same for any disease: cancer, AIDS,
diabetes, heart disease. You may have to repeat self-love and healing your emotional
elbows or boo boos a number of times to have a physical impact, especially
deep-seated issues. Or, will you?

This is where
the Instant Healing Zone comes in.
One of the most exciting benefits of applying regular Healing Touch Quick Steps
self-induced healing is that calling on additional Source energy to unburden
and uplift your energies, frees up stuck energy. It doesn’t matter how long
energy has been stuck. It is simply stuck energy that needs to be flowing
cleanly. The fact is Source – Creative Intelligence, Big Picture energy, The
Force that Edgar Cayce used to call it, is bigger than any earthly disturbance,
faster than the speed of light. It is unconditional love.  You access this for healing.

Right now you
can apply a Healing Touch Quick Step called Love
Your Self;
the perfect one to give yourself when an emotional boo boo or
shadow begins ruling your present moment.

Cross your hands
in front of you and gently grab your opposite mid-upper arms (thumb on inside
of arm, the rest of your fingers on the outside of the arm). Relax your
shoulders, arms, hands and fingers and simply be with your body’s natural
system of healing for a minute or so. Then wrap your thumb and fingers around
your left INDEX finger. Again, relax your shoulders, hands, arms and fingers.
Comfortably breathe for a minute or so. Then switch hands and wrap your thumb
and fingers around your right INDEX finger for another minute or so, breathing
normally all the while. Then wrap your thumb and fingers around your left
LITTLE finger and simply be in the hold for a minute or so. Then finally switch
sides and wrap your thumb and fingers around your right LITTLE finger for the
same amount of time.

Supporting your
shadow effect healing, bringing your emotional elbows or boo boos into
wholeness may be that simple. Actively love your separated parts as they show
up, and nourish your body-mind-spirit energies with Healing Touch Quick Steps. Drawing
your emotional elbows into yourself with compassion expands your connection
with Source-Creative Intelligence. Starting with yourself, healing your own
emotional boo boos makes it easier for you to feel kindness for others.

Many blessings for your health and wholeness,
