Self-Care Game Time!
Similarly to when you go to the gym, talk therapy, or the dentist - your body might need a couple days to process and rest from the self-care activity it just completed... And perhaps sometimes recovery days are needed while other times your body is ready to rock and roll afterwards.
The same concept applies to energy healing and Discover Healing estimates that approximately 20% of people experience processing symptoms following an Emotion Code session. So it is a good idea to be aware of the potential for symptoms in the case your body does have some, as it could feel unpleasant to be caught off guard.
In order to help alleviate any possible discomfort and assist your body before and after your session, please be sure to drink lots of water. Energy healing dehydrates the cells, so it is important to stay hydrated. This is just another reason to drink water...it does the body so much good!
Following a session, the body enters a state of processing to release the excess energy of Trapped Emotions and this period can last between 1 to 3 days. Shine Through Energy Healing’s has had clients report a variety of symptoms experienced during the processing period.
Some symptoms identified were, but are not limited to:
o Tiredness - a need to nap or sleep longer
o Tearing up
o Tension in throat
o Lucid dreaming and/or nightmares
o Brain fog
o Feeling emotionally up and down
*Echos are experiencing the emotions that were released during the session. For example, if anger was released, you might feel a bit grumpy over the next couple days. But it should not be near the same intensity as when the emotion was initially trapped in the body.
Another potential outcome to be aware of during the processing period is having a symptom “feel worse before feeling better.” For example, if the session is focused on identifying Trapped Emotions that could be contributing to feeling dizzy – the processing symptoms that could be experienced might be a heightened sense of dizziness since the session is basically plucking on that string.
*Heart-Wall Processing Symptoms
Clearing your Heart-Wall also has the same potential for processing symptoms. In fact, some clients have mentioned that they had more heightened processing symptoms when they had their Heart-Wall released.
If you think about it, this could make sense for some people’s body to experience more exaggerated symptoms since this protective barrier has been in place for (most likely) a significant portion, if not all of their life.
Sometimes in order to have the breakdown, we need to have the breakthrough. This concept holds true with energy healing. Clearing the Heart-Wall is basically energetic surgery, and should be treated and respected as such.
However, it should also be noted that many other clients have not had the experience of heavy (or if any) processing symptoms from releasing their Heart-Wall.
To each their own – The Emotion Code is truly an individual and subjective experience!
*Please note: The Energy Practitioner will not release your Heart-Wall (or any other Trapped Emotion) unless your subconscious mind provides a clear “Yes” that it is safe to be cleared. Our bodies form Heart-Walls for a reason and at the time of your session, it could still be required by your subconscious mind. Therefore, Shine Through Energy Healing will always accept and respect your body’s response when determining if energy work is in your best interest at the time.
Lastly, there is an 80% chance that you won’t have any processing symptoms at all! But again, awareness is key especially in regard to balance and wellness.
Setting Yourself Up for Success
When scheduling your sessions, perhaps pick a time when you do not have any important commitments or obligations afterwards for the next couple days (ie: meetings, operating heavy machinery, etc.). If you work a typical 40-hour week from Monday to Friday, it might be best to try to schedule your energy healing sessions closer to the end of the work week opposed to the start.
If the availability listed on Shine Through Energy Healing’s does not work with your schedule, send a message with a few times that do work for you and the Energy Practitioner will do her best to accommodate your requests.
Another option if your schedule does not align with the posted service schedule is also to have an Email Emotion Code session. During an email session, the Energy Practitioner completes the session independently at the allocated time and sends a report to you afterwards. The results are the exact same as an 1:1 session; however, since the client service is not the same experience since you do not have personal contact with the Energy Practitioner; therefore, Shine Through Energy Healing offers email sessions at a reduced rate compared to the Traditional Emotion Code Sessions.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Hydration is so important, it gets another shout out! So it is also suggested you hydrate yourself before the session in addition to after. Since the muscles can store Trapped Emotions, it is best to drink lots of water in order to set your body up for success to release ample excess negative emotional energies.
A few other friendly reminders and suggestions for the processing period is:
o Be gentle with yourself – kindness and compassion should always be given to yourself too!
o Listen to your body – when possible, rest if tired, slow down, and take an easy
o Do activities that make you feel uplifted and happy – perhaps play with a pet, read...
o Ramp up your other self-care practices – gentle yoga, meditation, etc.
o Be proud of yourself for taking responsibility for your energetic body.
If you are ready to level-up your self-care game and release negative emotional energies from the past, so you can Shine Through… Book your session today!
