Emotional healing is a complex concept that is best described as an emotional, psychological, and spiritual transformation. Although emotions are entities within themselves as part of the human experience, the reality is that our emotions have the power to shape, and sometimes even control, all of the other facets of our lives. When our emotions are unhealthy, such as persistent sadness, anger, or aggression -- or simply when our emotions grow stronger than our thoughts -- our entire lives can be affected. Healing our unhealthy emotions can bring about a whole-body and whole-life transformation.
Chances are excellent that if you want to pursue emotional healing, you have made the connection that your current emotional state is unhealthy or otherwise unsatisfactory for where you are, and what you want in your life. However, because the process of emotional healing can sometimes make things worse before they are better, it is also beneficial to understand the negative impact of our unhealthy emotions on our body in other aspects of our lives.
Happiness, peace, and contentment are all positive feelings; they're also the feelings that have the least physical impact on our bodies. While these feelings may be excellent in helping our psychological state, spiritual life, and actual day-to-day living, the physical effect of these feelings themselves on the body is minimal. However, if you are interested in pursuing emotional healing, we will work on the assumption that happiness and contentment are not the feelings you are trying to heal. Other emotions, such as anger or sadness, that are persistent or even constant, can create havoc on our bodies.
Anger, for example, can have a devastating impact on the body. When we become angry, our bodies start producing hormones such as adrenaline; our bodies may unfortunately cease producing certain hormones, such as acetylcholine, which helps our bodies deal with the increased production of adrenaline and other potentially unhealthy hormones. Without protective hormones like acetylcholine, the nervous system is constantly working and stimulated during bouts of anger. It can also become overexerted, especially in those with chronic anger. As a result, stiffer arteries in a weakened heart may develop; high cholesterol, kidney damage, and liver damage are also potential threats. Naturally, anger also comes with some other threats to your mental health, such as depression or anxiety. It is important to recognize that some scientists have conducted research demonstrating that chronic anger may possibly be more of a risk to your body than smoking or obesity, often as a major factor contributing to an early death. Unfortunately, there's more. When someone is in a constant state of anger, sadness, or other (naturally occurring but) difficult emotions, there are some other effects it may have on your body. Some of the hormones, such as adrenaline, that are generated by a chronic negative feeling can alter your body's chemistry over time. If this occurs, your body can actually become physiologically addicted to these feelings. Obviously, they can become addictive emotionally, as well. In fact, the very concept of undergoing an emotional healing process is subject to the notion that you have, to some degree, become psychologically addicted to unhealthy emotions. Recognizing that you may have become physiologically addicted, as well, can be helpful in learning how to break patterns and better control the choices you make regarding your emotions. Anger can also lead to mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and stress.
Sadness is another emotion that, left unchecked, can cause lasting effects. While some of the same hormones that are stimulated by anger may also be generated by sadness, the psychological effects of sadness are much more serious than the physiological. Of course, that is up to a point; sadness can cause extreme physical consequences (they simply usually result from choices made during sadness, as opposed to physiological consequences stemming from the sadness itself). For example, an individual suffering from chronic sadness may become socially withdrawn and begin neglecting aspects of their physical health, such as maintaining a healthy diet and exercise program. In extreme cases, those suffering from pervasive sadness and despair may cause harm to themselves or others.
It is very important when undergoing emotional healing to recognize the patterns and conditions that your body is in as well as your emotions. Tackling pervasive sadness, which usually indicates a level of depression, may require antidepressants that can assist you in maintaining your ideal serotonin levels. And anxiety that may be caused by sadness, anger, or other emotions, may possibly benefit from anti-anxiety medications. Beginning any kind of medication will obviously require a prescription from your doctor -- and possibly a consultation with a psychiatrist or psychologist. This course focuses on healing yourself emotionally without any medication. However, if you find yourself still struggling or think that there may be a physiological component that you may be unable to change or break by yourself, consider talking with your doctor about medication.
As you proceed through this course, you will also find that there are many elements of emotional healing that will affect your body. Likewise, there will be things you should be doing with your body that will help guide you through your emotional healing. Although it would be tremendously efficient if we could all separate our feelings from the rest of who we are (including our bodies), it simply isn't possible. We cannot treat our unhealthy emotions without responding to our body's needs and drawing on the resources our body can provide.
