Just like with the grief trapped in my lungs, when the fear and anger that had been causing my arthritis left my body, what I experienced was a slight shift within my being. If I hadn't have been paying close attention, I might have missed it. After the shift, there was a sense of more ease in my body and something returning to the way it should be.
With the releasing of grief there was no crying. With the releasing of anger there were no angry words or gestures. With the release of fear, there was nothing other than an uncomfortable feeling leaving my body. The healthful changes in my body were immediate and lasting.
Sometimes we think that releasing emotions involves some sort of big display. Emotions can release in a healing way at those times too, but those sorts of displays don't necessarily lead to healing. What is critical is not the outward display, but the release inside your being, which can occur whether or not anything is apparent at the surface or not.
How to Release Emotions in This Way
To help people learn this emotional release process, I have created a 6-CD set of guided meditations which teach some powerful and effective ways to do this release work. What I teach I learned through the Buddhist tradition, particularly the Tibetan practice of Tonglen and the ancient Buddhist practice of Vipassana, which is the modern day practice most like what the historical Buddha taught.
This article is the first in the Who Gets Well series. In the next article I will describe how to do Tonglen meditation.
Special for Visitors to this Page
Let me guide you through the meditations that were instrumental to the releases of anger that lead to my own healing from arthritis.
Anger leads to inflammation in the body. Releasing it is critical to deep healing of arthritis. It is better than any anti-inflammatory drug.
