hi Ernst 

You mentioned fasting is the best method for physical healing and then eating raw veggies and fruits.

Is there any such simpler general method for emotional detoxification in addition to meditation? May be like going into woods or hill stations that naturally make people happy? Or exercising a certain amount of time till endorphins are released? 

Thank you 🙏🙏

Hello Amit,

Have you looked into the Bach flower remedies? I cannot speak to the results they give but I am considering their use myself.

Yes I use them a lot quite often. They are good. Sometimes I want to explore more options to try at different times.

@amit  Have you tried writing? It helps me clear out thoughts and put them in proper order and perspective. 

Unfortunately, emotions are part of the body and need to be released through the body. During an emotional detox, the feelings get intensified before they subside, and to be able to release them, it is necessary that we maintain connection with the feelings without judgment or over-thinking. 

I have found crystals and acupuncture to be helpful, but like the Bach flowers, it stops working after a certain time. I think it helps bring us in balance for a short time to be able to deal with the issues, but dealing with the issues falls back on the mind-body connection.

Yes I like to write a lot and make that as a mirror of my thoughts but only after I have formed a good visuals of end to end picture. Until that lot of thinking going on and things become clear when mind becomes calm.

@amit  Having a mind similar to yours, I know what you are talking about. I have also found that sometimes it creates distance between body and mind, which is the only way to logically understand the chaos. Now-a-days I try to start the day with “How am I feeling today?” and then figure out the reasons before I let the mind free to create structure. It creates the link to the physical body and the physical existence, instead of living in the ethers all the time.

Maybe give your initial reactions a go. What harm is there to try to go for a walk in the woods or exercising? Personally, I enjoy it, not that I get a lot of opportunity for it. The calm in the surroundings seeps into me calming me down. I then feel free to observe the beauty of nature. As long as you are aware that it might bring pent-up emotions up for release, it is a step in the positive direction. Worse comes to worse you will know if it works for you or not.

The main thing with emotional is to not attempt to escape and run away to things but try to have the time to stay with the feelings and any feelings that are felt in the body as we tend to stuff emotions away in the body. And yes, can use bach flowers to help.

And, for to do what Ernst says it´s important to realize that every emotion is a friend, even if it often presents itself as a monster.

It´s hard to win that battle if nobody tells us that it´s doable, and that no emotion is there to harm us but to heal us.

We also need to be reminded that we can do it. We don´t have to be treated in that sense, we can treat ourselves. (Nothing wrong with asking for help though.)
