EMOTIONS 101

How understanding the "mind-body connection" has changed my life

I am a body psychotherapist. Throughout my career, I have been fascinated by the connection between body, emotions, mind and soul. Everything I do as a holistic practitioner is guided by this perspective. It is just so very powerful! The understanding of how body and mind are intertwined allows a client to take full charge of their own health, and it gives a skilled practitioner an incredibly powerful access to a client's essence.

What Secrets Are Held Within Your Body That Are Your Keys To Healing?

Posted by on Wed, Sep 05, 2012

Maureane O'Shaugnessy

Have you read every book you can get your hands on, tried every new therapy that has come your way and still feel no further ahead in achieving your healing goals?  What if I told you that your body has the answer!  What if I told you that I can help to stimulate your body to speak, to give up its healing secrets?  What if I told you that there are simple, profoundly effective healing techniques that can resolve your blockages and place you in a balanced and open state where potential for healing exists?

Why Can't I Heal?

We all have discordant energies, deeply-held belief systems and familial relational patterns (even with ourselves), familial contracts, physical or emotional life-traumas, etc......still held within the cells of our bodies and our hearts, that we are not consciously aware of, and that can interfere with the ultimate ‘healing’ or ‘wholeness’ of the ‘self’ we so desire.  These can readily sabotage our best efforts and even the prescribed medical interventions designed for our healing.  

Given everything that we are faced with tackling or managing in our busy, hectic, demanding lives, we can lose that essential connection to our spirit, our very being, that has the ultimate potential to sustain us in every way –physically, mentally and spiritually.

3 Ways to Practice Mindfulness Every Day

Posted by on Mon, Jan 17, 2011

Mindfulness is a separate faculty of consciousness totally distinct from cognition (thinking), emotion (feelings), intuition or sensory awareness (the 5 senses).

Mindfulness is not about Mystical Religions, awareness or meditation, although many religious and spiritual paths make use of mindfulness techniques.  Many therapies and psychotherapies are becoming “mindfulness-based” as it is discovered that all healing methodologies get better results if mindfulness is adjunctively applied.  Mindfulness techniques are primarily taught to improve emotional stability, to manage stress, to expand ones intelligence, to become more productive and to lead a more joyful and meaningful life.
