What are the things in life that you always keep to yourself? The things that you never tell anyone, but you feel like they are eating you up inside. It can be Shock that you haven’t digested yet, it could be anger, or maybe your sad. Most of the times Pride takes over and our emotions are suppressed. Candace B. Pert wrote in her book:Every lived emotion is a postive emotion(its from Molecules of emotions, a most read). Okay it’s always easier said than done. But you don’t have to go and tell everyone how you feel (you could if you want to), but if its hard for you to talk about your feelings, write them down on a piece of paper, if the feelings where nasty then burn that paper and get rid of it, or just throw it away. Well if you might not be a writer, and you feel angry take that damm pillow and scream, screm as hard and loud as you can. If you are sad cry. In today’s society crying is seen as a bad thing, but its one of the best ways to recovery, to healing, all the sadness and the pain gets washed out of system. If today was a good day write it on a piece of paper, stick the paper on your mirror, or tell someone how good you feel. Feelings or emotions are like an epidemic. If we live our emotions, our feelings the people around us feel it to. If you are happy, you will put that smile on someone elses face,if you are sad that other person might also feel sad but together we are stonger and will get through those feelings easily.
So why is it so important to live out our emotions? If we suppress our feelings, our body gets suppressed to. There is no such thing as a seprate body and a seprate mind it’s called bodymind. The tiny little knots in our bodies called Lymphnodes, have a very important function, they cleans. They are like a rubbish bin, they suck up all the dirt from the body and relase it through sweat, amongst others. I know sweat stinks, some people might have a good natural smell others well not so good. If sweat stinks quite heavy then there is alot of rubbish in the system, and the Rubbish truck wasn’t aloud to pick up the rubbish yet. Why? Because we build a wall around us so that no-one gets in but nothing goes out either.
Selfworth. How many of always think we are not good enough, or what we do isn’t good enough. Or you might measure your worth with someone, or someone elses achievements with yours. This is all rubbish and rubbish that doesn’t get cleaned from the body and causes blockage in the lymph system. But let me tell you. You are enough, you are made in the image of God. Which is worth more than anything the world can offer you.
If you jump out of the emotional part of the Lymph system, deodorant and exercise also play a big role. No you don’t have to run around without deodorant and think everyone will smell you. But try to atleast ones a week give your underarms a break, let the lymph nodes feel the Freedom, let them breathe. And very important is excersice. Through movement the nodes can get to work and are able to release the rubbish, all the dirt from the system, and if you sweat even better.
Herbs, one of my favorite subjects are excellent support mechanisms for lymph drainage. Vinola tricolor or Pansies. Sometimes also know as a lions mouth or beard. I always ask what do they want to let me? Why would these two flowers be chosen for the Lymphsystem? If you look at the pansie like it’s a lions mouth, I can just imagen that it cleans up the system eats away all the dirt, like a lion enjoying his pray. The Daisy’s with their white colors indicate purity, flushing out the dirt in the system, bringing purity to bodymind and soul.
I am a Kinesiologist and in our first course Touch for Health we learn about the Neurolymphatic points, if there is stress they cause a blockage and just by rubbing the lymph points stress is released and the body can go into a healing phase.
I want to encourage you to rub these points, do yourself and your body the favor, remove the rubbish from the body. Let the rubbish truck come past and take it away for you. One important verse that I want to give to you today is:
