Early Spring Holistic Detox

I often get inspiration for my monthly blog from my discussions and interactions with people. It struck me recently that generally, people are still unaware of the impact of unhealed emotions on the physical health of the body. We know the body can do with a detox, but what about a holistic mental and emotional detox?

Why do we Want to Release Past Emotions?
Negative emotions cause stress hormones. If not worked through, these harmful chemicals are stored in the body. This is how, over time, unresolved, suppressed emotions can cause dis-ease in the body.

There is a researched link between suppressed emotions and illness like cancer. There is also a link between anger and high blood pressure and between heart disease and hostility or cynicism. There’s a link between weight gain and unresolved emotions as these harmful toxins are stored in fat cells away from the main organs – the body’s way of protecting the organs. Considering the powerful mind-body-link, a rigid mental approach – wanting to control the outcome of things, holding on to things or people too tightly and resisting change – can cause stiffness, aches and pains; even arthritis in the body. Conversely, research indicates that, generally people who are optimistic, intuitively know they have a choice, the ability to let go, to flow with change and to laugh at themselves. They have a basic trust in people, are robust and healthy.

The Mind-Body Link
Bruce Lipton says that more than 95% of all illnesses in the body are caused by the mind. Stress, fear and limiting beliefs are the cause of most modern day ill-health. This is interesting and also very empowering as it puts us in charge of our own health.

So, how about an early Spring holistic detox? There is a lot you can do to invest in your own health. Here are 7 easy self-care practices to kick-start your holistic Spring detox:

1. Mindful Emotional Healing
Spend a bit of time with yourself in mindful reflection. How do you feel physically? How are your energy levels? Lately, what have you been feeling emotionally? Identify theses feelings. Is it anger, frustration, blame, resentment, low feelings, depression, sadness, fear, anxiousness, worry, hurt, guilt or shame? By identifying and acknowledging the feelings, the healing can begin. Now focus on what’s causing these feelings in you? What are you learning from it about yourself? What can you change in you? With this new insight and growth, it’s time to let it go.

2. Letting go
Negative thoughts and low, or fearful or angry feelings can sap your energy. The simple practice of letting go can be very healing. Releasing the thoughts and emotions with intent, can make you feel lighter. This is another purpose of meditation. Follow this Mindfulness Healing Meditation to reflect on the issues of the day, learn from them and then let them go. This way you can put the day to bed and tomorrow can be a whole new beginning, a clean slate. This is the beauty of life: everyday can be a new beginning.
‘When the mind is left without anything to cling to, it becomes still’ – Sri Ramana Maharshi

3. Cutting cords
Our interaction with people around us naturally create connections, sometimes physically, mentally, emotionally and also energetically. Connections are made through rapport, touch, strong emotions (even anger and upset), strong thoughts and communication (even on the phone). Such interactions can keeps us connected, even after we’ve parted. So there is still a flow of thoughts, feelings and energy between us. If you have many such connections open, your energy can feel scattered and you can feel drained. You are supplying others with your energy. If you still feel angry or upset with someone, these strong emotions keep you energetically attached. That’s why that person remains on your mind. Sometimes to cut these cords we may have to go through a forgiveness process. Forgiveness restores your energy and your health and sets you free. This release can feel like a huge weight lifting as you put the past behind you peacefully.

A powerful healing meditation to cut the energy cords after you have interacted with people, is the Huna practice called Ho’oponopono. I use this fairly frequently to clear any thoughts or emotions after intense interactions, to let go of people on my mind, to cut cords and bring my energy back intact. In this way you can put the past behind you and relate to those around you afresh. Sometimes you have to say no to some of the demands people place on you, so that you can restore yourself and create balance between others’ needs and your own.

4. Refreshing
Many of the energy practices such as Yoga and Tai-Chi have the purpose of cleansing, refreshing and re-energising your energy. Walking in nature can be equally refreshing. Nature is naturally cleansing. When you walk near water or trees, you can intend that your mind clears, that thoughts wash away and that your energy field is cleansed in the breeze. Getting enough sleep is also refreshing. Sleep acts as a reset for the body and mind.

5. Clearing
Meditation is another way of clearing the mind, creating stillness and refreshing yourself mentally, emotional and physically. In a meditative state you can visualise a cleansing light showering down on you, cleansing the body and the energy field around you. Give the gadgets a break. The electromagnetic smog they emanate, impacts on your energy levels. Spring clean your house, clean your car and declutter with intent. When your environment is clear, your mind will feel all the clearer for it.
The inside creates the outside and the outside impacts the inside.

6. Re-energising
There is much you can do to re-energise yourself. We get energy from the food we eat, water we drink, soaking up sunlight and exercising. One of the most effective ways of re-energising yourself is through breathing practices – another purpose of meditation.

7. Breathing
The Importance of the breath
– Breath is life. As long as we breathe we are alive!
– Breath is energy. Through breathing we generate energy.
– Breath is spirit. As we breathe in – inspire – we enliven ourselves.
Benefits of breathing
The simple practice of deep breathing is the most effective way to:
– Energise yourself
– Detoxify – 70% of toxins in the body are released through breathing
– Relax – a longer out-breath, like a sigh, relaxes the nervous system
– Slow your heart rate
– Raise your energy to higher vibrations and you feel uplifted
– Clear the mind
– Align your mind, body and soul
– Restore balance.

Emotions are Levels of Consciousness

Consciousness is your Blueprint for Health and Success

In last month’s blog, we explored 11 Mysterious Facts About Your Emotions. We uncovered, among other, that emotions have vibrations and that your level of emotions, as indicated on this vibrational scale above, is an indicator of your level of consciousness at the time. This month we want to explore further this link between levels of emotions and your default experiences in life.

The Link Between Emotions, Health and Success

Emotions have vibrations: We have all walked into a room and sensed the vibes. You can feel the tension or the lightness. Some, like stress and fear, are dense and low in vibration. Others, like love and joy, are light and high in vibrations. Higher vibrations are naturally more uplifting and expansive.

It’s a human experience: It is natural and human to experience the whole range of emotions. One day you may feel optimistic and positive, and then comes a day when you feel low for no apparent reason. Be willing to experience the whole range of human emotions. Avoid resisting the lower emotions of anger, sadness, fear, hurt or guilt. What you resist persists. Avoid dwelling there for too long. Flow through the emotional experience with awareness and intention to move back up into positive emotions again. Releasing resistance and taking responsibility, begin to tip us into positive emotions. Practicing acceptance, gratitude and forgiveness helps us to transcend the ego and become more of our true higher selves. Clarity brings wisdom and previously evasive emotions of unconditional love, joy and peace are experienced again as our true natural state. Youthfulness and good health – also our natural state – returns.

It’s an indicator of consciousness: Emotional levels are levels of consciousness. Where you dwell in emotions, you dwell in consciousness. Consciousness (not DNA) controls the health in your body as well as your levels of success in achieving positive outcomes. Consciousness changes and activates your DNA, allowing more of your resources and potential to be tapped.

Qualities of Consciousness

In the Negative: As is evident from the emotional scale above, if you dwell in lower emotions too long, you can experience apathy and your energy becomes more constrictive and solid. You can’t make decisions because you resist change. You want things to stay the same. You want to BE right. You take life too seriously and are motivated by safety and security. Stress and fear makes you ill. You feel like a victim of circumstances, as though life is unfair. You can drag people down with you. People around you can find you draining.  People at these levels tend to be risk-averse. They remember past failures and generate a lot of ‘what if’ type mental chatter. Ironically, what we put our intention on, grows in possibility and prevalence.

In the Positive: Higher up in positive emotions of willingness, gratitude, excitement and enthusiasm, there’s more movement and flow in energy. You become more expansive and you have more space to create. You are driven (not by money) by a vision and purpose. You feel energised and healthy. Its easier to come into your own power, to be creative and to manifest positive outcomes. Abundance is a natural outflow. People who cultivate positivity and dwell more higher up the emotional levels, are playful and happy. They don’t take life too seriously. They take full responsibility for their own experiences. They have a contagious enthusiasm. They have strong positive intentions. They want to DO right. They feel inspired and serve as an inspiration to others.

In Practice

Your health and success depends on your willingness to:

  1. Experience the whole range of human emotions – rather than resist them
  2. Embrace and flow with the emotions you experience – rather than trying to control them
  3. Learn and let go and intentionally move up the emotional scale
  4. Practice forgiveness, gratitude, willingness, enthusiasm and positive intention
  5. Keep creating to expand (e.g. your business or career or personal empowerment)
  6. Remain light-hearted and playful
  7. Remain vision and purpose driven – abundance will flow by itself.


Sometimes we can do with a little help. I can highly recommend Time Line Therapy™ for a complete clear-out of negative emotions and limiting beliefs. It’s transformational and rapidly speeds up your personal evolution. Time Line Therapy™, facilitates gentle, yet powerful processes to enable you to heal emotions of the past. Emotions of anger, sadness, fear, hurt and guilt keep us attached to the past and as we heal these emotions, we set ourselves free from the past; free to create a new magnificent life.

As a great self-help tool, you can listen to a Mindfulness Healing Meditation listed under our Products page. It is an inner journey that you can make for your own emotional healing as often as you want to release emotions and achieve lightness.
