Do you have full ownership and management rights of your emotions or do they own and manage you?
We are all aware of the necessity from time to time to DETOX our body and cleanse it with healthy fluids and foods, if we want great physical health.
But what about our heart?
What about great emotional balance and health?
A regular habit of DETOXING our heart so we flush out negative emotion and fears is not only essential to our health and wellbeing, but also for maintenance of our sanity and the quality of our relationships.
Too many of us were raised on or still binge on junk beliefs, thoughts and feelings about ourselves and love.
Making emotional DETOXING a consistent ritual within our healthy lifestyle allows us to release fear and emotional stress, preventing cancerous accumulation.
Healthy, emotional DETOX outlets for consideration are a therapist, mentor, priest, spiritual healer or wise elder.
Daily meditative practices that calm the heart are also handy emotional DETOX tools. I am speaking about anything that brings your little heart joy, contributing to healthy self-respect created through gentle time with yourself. These activities automatically dissolve emotional impurities, DETOX fears and build our Emotional Fitness.
For me my morning rituals of prayer, meditation, private journaling followed by digesting then sharing a DWV (Daily Word Vitamin) helps me DETOX just a little more fear every day.
It is an unfair and emotionally destabilising ask of family, lovers and friends to consistently hold a space for our fears and negativity that need to be flushed out.
I love Winston Churchill’s advice when it comes to achieving greatness on any level …
“The price of greatness is responsibility.”
We all need to emotionally cleanse if we wish to maintain good health. Some of us, however, need to do this more often than others if we have a backlog (a lot of emotional baggage that requires unpacking) … yep, that’s me.
If we do not or will not allow our heart the relief of a responsible place to release emotional waste we inevitably accidentally drop or deliberately dump our TOXIC bundle of emotional rubbish on those around us just to feel some relief. But the price of emotional irresponsibility is that we end up polluting our life with fear and negativity! And we then start to stink at being emotionally available in our intimate relationships.
Let’s remember to use the life we have been gifted with wisely and perhaps review how, where and with whom we carry out our regular emotional DETOX with.
Do we have a daily DETOX ritual of joy flushing our fear, or do we wait until our behaviour really stinks before we will start to replace emotional self-neglect with self-care?
It is our responsibility to manage our heart’s need to DETOX well so that we first do no harm to others and ourselves.
