Connect with your feelings more.

Connect with your feelings more.

Do you have a habit of repressing your emotions? If you feel a sense of inner numbness or disconnection from yourself/others, pay attention. The more you bury your emotions, the more they fester within your unconscious mind and manifest as illnesses, nervous breakdowns, explosion of rage, and even mental illnesses. In order to be true to yourself, you need to connect with your heart. If you believe in the chakra energy system, you might like to explore heart chakra healing. Otherwise, try some form of catharsis to cut through the wall of emotional numbness. Try screaming, shouting, crying, laughing or anything that actively works with your body (one great technique is called dynamic meditation). When your emotions start to come out, be gentle with yourself. Allow yourself to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed at first, realizing that emotional expression is healthy and vital to your well-being
