Experiencing Feeling Will Heal You

In our world, experiencing difficult feelings causes many people to panic. We were not taught to experience the sensations in our body when feelings are bubbling around.

When people see other people feel too much, they suggest they see their doctor and consider getting a prescription for a pill to stop that feeling.

Anti depressants and anti anxiety medication can be supportive for the short term if the feelings bubbling up are too overwhelming to function. But they must be combined with counseling to get to the source of where those deep feelings are coming from. And learning to allow them expression can be a project when all the teaching beforehand was to keep them bottled up.

Feelings that happen as the result of an event or a difficult relationship are often buried or suppressed in the nervous system.
